Buying ethical beauty is so easy now, as more and more retailers realise that it’s not cool to sell things that exploit people and animals.
If you work full time it can be hard to get to the shops and besides, I personally think it’s more fun to be a little picky and spend time mulling over your purchases. It’s your skin, so you can afford to be.
Having bought exclusively cruelty-free for the past few months, here’s my hit list of great places to 💸
The first place I tried Leahlani, Black Robin and Tata Harper. The lovely Eve only stocks products containing completely natural ingredients and these are all, of course, cruelty-free. Shipping is super-fast and the orders include great samples. Also you can Afterpay, so how good is that? Find it here.
Mecca can be a little on the exxy side and doesn’t offer Afterpay BUT does offer a great and easily searchable range of natural, ethical products, like Eve Lom, Chantecaille and Drunk Elephant. Again, great samples. I use these to take away travelling. So easy. Click over there now.
This is where I first went when embarking on my makeup bag purge. This site has everything you could want. And I mean everything, household stuff too. Owner Irene has such attention to detail and a commitment to ensuring the integrity of the shop’s product range. My personal favourite? Such a fab range of natural deodorant. You can rack up reward points too, which is always a bonus. All types of price points too. Check it out here.
Probably my favourite ever shopping experience. I am obsessed with Charlotte’s lipsticks and mascara. The range isn’t available in Australia so ordering from the UK is the go and the website makes this process a breeze. Shipping is really affordable and quick. The orders arrive like presents and have the best samples. Charlotte, as I’ve discussed before, is also cruelty-free. Love love love. The Australian version of the website lives on internetland here.
Samples AND a Tim Tam? Adore Beauty, you spoil me. This is where I get Jane Iredale. There’s usually some sort of fab sale. Check it out.
