Whether you’re an animal lover or not, sometimes using cruelty-free beauty products just feels right! It seems like nowadays, beauty brands are hopping on board to make that cruelty-free promise. Oftentimes, you don’t even know you’re using a cruelty-free brand! Did you know that beauty brands such as  CoverGirl, and E.L.F., are cruelty-free?

We’re here to share our top four favorite cruelty-free beauty brands and of course, we included our favorite product from each line.

It’s no surprise that we love Shea Moisture here at SHEEN! The brand is eco-friendly and you guessed it, contains shea butter in each of their products. Our absolute favorite is their SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk. because it contains the frizz and truly allows the hair to shine without having that mouse or gel-like crunchy feel.

Over 50% of this beauty brand is vegan! Not only that but they do not retail in any country that requires animal testing. Some of their best-selling products include the Blur Stick and the Holographic Stick, which of course are animal-friendly. I’m obsessed with the Holographic Stick because it gives me that natural dewy look and glides on the skin easily.

Glossier is 100% cruelty-free. Yes, you read that right! Their fan-favorite products are the Boy Brow, which is a brow boosting product that gives them color, thickens the brow, and shapes them to perfection

E.L.F. is not only cruelty-free but it’s also vegan too, giving us every reason to love them on top of their great prices. Right now, my go-to product is their Camo Concealer, which is a 16-hr concealer that conceals, corrects, and is also great for contour and highlighting!
