5 Beauty Brands You Can Feel Good About

Hi, my name is Taylor and I’m a product junkie. I’ve said that before on this blog, but in case you forgot, here it is again. It’s so true though. I can rarely leave a store without buying a new nail polish, face mask, hair treatment, or lip color. I may have gone there for paper towels, but if I don’t leave with a beauty item, you know something’s wrong with me.

Cruelty free products are very important to me. I avoid products that test on our animal friends at all costs. If a product is good for the environment as well, that’s a great bonus. There’s a lot of rumors out there about what makes a beauty brand cruelty-free or eco-friendly, so I’ve brushed up on my journalism skills, done my research, and I’m sharing 5 of my favorite feel-good beauty brands with you.

5. Pacifica 

Pacifica offers a wide variety of products from lotion to lip stick to nail polish, all of which were formulated without the use of animal testing. The thing I like most about this brand is the wide-selection, and how accessible their products are. I’ve found them at both Wal-Mart & Target. You can’t go wrong with their Coconut and Caffeine Rehab face mask or the roll-on perfumes in a variety of scents.

4. LUSH Cosmetics

If you know me, it should be absolutely no surprise that this is on my list. I’m LUSH obsessed. So obsessed in fact, that I joined a Facebook group in 2014 completely devoted to LUSH love, news, etc. I made a circle of great friends that I’m still in a group chat with to this day. (HI GUYS!) Featuring handmade products that smell as good as they feel,  LUSH Cosmetics works to fight against animal testing by donating 100% of all proceeds from their Charity Pot to various organizations, including White Coat Waste Movement, and The Beagle Freedom Project. My favorite products from them are the bath bombs (Intergalactic is a personal fave!) and their shower scrubs (great for dry skin!)

3. e.l.f. Cosmetics

Perfect for the beauty on a budget, this line’s low price-point doesn’t reflect the quality of ingredients used, and features a wide variety of synthetic makeup brushes free of animal by-products. I personally love the Nude Rose Gold eyeshadow palate and their skincare line.

2. Yes To…

Carrots, blueberries, tomatoes – there’s real fruits and/or vegetables in every product! Affordable, cruelty-free, and 99% natural, Yes To can be found in most drugstores, and offer a lot to choose from for anyone looking to wash those locks without harming the environment. The Yes To Cucumber makeup remover wipes are an essential for my beauty routine.

1. NYX Cosmetics

A fave among makeup lovers and artists alike, NYX is both affordable and proudly cruelty-free, and offer top-quality pieces that last in a wide variety of formulas and colors. I’m personally obsessed with their liquid lipstick and setting sprays.
