Lesser Known Cruelty Free Brands

As my journey through the land of cruelty free continues, I have lots of new brand discoveries to share with you. Some you may know but not realise they are cruelty free, or some you may not know about at all! My very lovely mum put together a cruelty free beauty box for me for Christmas (I know she is so cute!), so a lot of these brands are actually courtesy of mum!

Marks and Spencer Beauty

Did you know that Marks and Spencer’s beauty is certified cruelty free?! I was thrilled to find this out when I received these hand creams from their Lifeology range as a gift from my future mother-in-law. The packaging is sleek and the hand creams smell amazing. Prices start at only £3.50 so it is well worth a look. Marks and Spencer also have a fully vegan skincare range called Pure which has to be on my list to try next. Let me know if you would be interested in hearing more about these products!

The Cheeky Panda

I have been trying my best to move away from using wipes, in order to do my bit towards making the planet cleaner. However I have now find an alternative, as The Cheeky Panda make tissues and wipes from 100% bamboo (different bamboo to the type pandas eat!) The company focus on the environment and also donate a part of every pack to help protect rainforests. Definitely check them out as they have some fantastic products and ideas. They have also been deemed one of the most ethical and sustainable businesses in the world!

Soaper Duper

Soaper Duper are a vegan and cruelty free bath and body company, who use recycled plastic to make their packaging, as well as supporting Water Aid. From body wash to body butter, body scrub to hand gel, they have it all at reasonable prices. They are not your average £2 from the supermarket, with body wash prices around £7.50, so watch out when they are on offer in Boots or take a look at their gift sets. Take a look to support a company who are helping to look after the planet and hygiene around the world.

Winky Lux

I’m ending on my favourite new cruelty free brand, Winky Lux. The formula of these lipsticks are probably one of my favourite that I have ever tried (and that’s saying something!) Whilst I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this particular set as the products are small and consequently a little more tricky to apply, I do absolutely love the formula as it is really creamy and pigmented in one swipe. I can’t deny however that it is a really adorable set with ultra cute (if not a little impractical) packaging which I am a sucker for! You can buy the kit at Superdrug for £13. I am definitely going to get my use out of these lipsticks and will 100% be looking to buy some of the full sized versions.


I’d love to know if you have tried any of these brands before or if they are new to you too? Let me know in the comments!
