Vegan / Cruelty Free Cosmetics and Shower Products

“How can you tell if a person is a vegan or not?” “Well, they’ll tell you.” 

Now that I’ve got your attention with that corny (but maybe cringingly true) joke, let’s be real here peeps. If you wanna walk the walk, you can’t just talk the talk. So it’s remarkable, really, to say that you don’t eat meat, seafood, or animal biproducts, but the real gold is when you also become informed on all the many other ways cruelty can become apparent in your life. One of the major culprits is in hair/makeup/beauty products, where milk derived items and gelatin often lurk.

Today’s blog post is a space where I want to share with you my favourite head to toe products that are cruelty free, all while being totally fabulous. Click through links are attached to each title, so go ahead, start scrolling!
