Cruelty-free beauty brands mean they do not test their products on animals which protects animals welfare. Many beauty brands achieve cruelty-free by making their products vegan or vegetarian. With the plant-based ingredients and technology, there is no need to harm animals! Here are some easy access cruelty-free beauty brands you need to know about.
1. Barry M
Not only is Barry M cruelty-free, but all the companies in their supply chain must also be cruelty-free as well! So this is a true cruelty-free high street beauty brand. Barry M is the representative of the drug store beauty brands. The different products they offer will seriously impress you.
Their vegan biodegradable glitter and their face jewels are definitely festival essentials. Their lip kits are a hit too and often described as dupes for the Kylie Lip Kits. Barry M is a cruelty-free beauty brand that will help you save money, stay glamorous at the same time. This is also one of the most affordable cruelty-free beauty brand out there!
Pixi is on the pricier side in terms of drug store beauty brands. This is a cruelty-free beauty brand that aims to create pure, awakening and skin-loving products where it will help your skin to achieve a naturally radiant look. Their legendary Glow Tonic is rumoured to be an absolute favourite of Kim Kardashian’s. The Glow Tonic contains aloe vera that hydrates the skin.
The red ginseng helps to fight hyperpigmentation. All of their products are cruelty-free and most of them are vegan too! Even though this is slightly pricier than typical high street beauty brands, Pixi is still worth the buy with its effectiveness and being cruelty-free at the same time!

4. Wet n Wild
You can find this cruelty free and vegan-friendly beauty brand at Boots. Their Photo Focus Foundation is probably the queen of high street foundations. The foundation is light but also gives full coverage at the same time. This is a perfect foundation if you are looking for a genuinely good quality foundation whilst paying drugstore prices.
5. Bare Minerals
This is not quite a high street beauty brand but you honestly need to try this. I know powder foundation might not be everyone’s cup of tea. But their award winning original mineral foundation is seriously something you need to try. The mineral foundation is great if you want something breathable. It prevents skin dehydration and it will help with breakouts too!
Another high street beauty brand staple. Their renowned body butter and body scrub are the best cruelty-free high street body care products. They are also very affordable which is ALWAYS a plus. Their body scrub is made with sweet almond oil and shea butter that will keep your skin hydrated after exfoliating too.
This is yet another typical high street beauty brand. Let’s be real, NYX is like the high street version of MAC where they have like millions of lip products where it is impossible to just choose one shade. Their lip products range from liquid matte lipstick, lip gloss, lip liner, and lip polish.
Their famous Soft Matte Lip Cream is an absolute must have in the beauty bag. If you are after some cruelty-free and budget-friendly lip products, NYX is definitely the place to go!
Probably the first beauty brand to start the cruelty-free movement. You can ALWAYS rely on this beauty brand for some effective skincare.

What is the point of buying cruelty free make up if you don’t actually have anything cruelty free to apply them with? Well, Real Techniques have answers for you. Their famous complexion sponges range from all different sizes and shapes to cater to your needs. Their brushes are also the high street beauty tools representative.
