Beauty Doesn’t Have to Hurt: Cruelty-Free Skincare
Every girl loves a good skincare routine! As I dove into this year, I decided to make skin care a priority in my routine. However, I wanted my skin care routine to be 100% vegan. A couple months ago, I honestly didn’t know what a “vegan” skin care routine included or what it meant. Vegan products do not include any ingredients from animals AND vegan products are never tested on animals. You may have noticed that these products are called “cruelty free” products and each product will have a bunny symbol that indicates that it is indeed cruelty free. Here are the best vegan, cruelty free skin care products that I have came across so far on my journey.

This face mist is a gentle moisturizer and could be used after washing your face in the morning and at night. On top of being a moisturizer, it also acts as a natural and gentle toner for the skin. The Coconut moisturizes and the rose tones. This is also a great product for sensitive skin. You can easily purchase this international brand at TJ Maxx stores for only $3.99 (6.76 fluid ounces).
