Well, here we are at the start of 2018 (where did 2017 go???) and at this time of year we are all looking to make New Years resolutions. This year why not pledge to go cruelty free for 2018. I’m not suggesting you bin everything you have straight away, no, just, as you run out of products replace them with those from cruelty free brands. Or if you are looking to buy new makeup make the decision to buy from brands that are cruelty free.
It’s never been easier to buy cruelty free products the difficulty is choosing what to buy!!! Well, I am here to give you a little help. Below is a guide to brands that are easily available here in the UK on the high street or online that are all cruelty free and a lot have vegan options.
