5 Reasons to go Cruelty Free – Blogmas Day 2

I have been making the transition to cruelty free beauty for around 2 years now. I’m not an expert and I still have the odd non cruelty-free product in my beauty collection. Today’s post is on five reasons why you should go cruelty free. This is not meant to chastise anyone but to get you thinking and hopefully inspire some people to make some changes.

  1. You are literally saving animals.
  2. You are making an ethical consumer choice.
  3. You are using your money for a good cause (while still treating yo’self).
  4. You can feel good about your purchases.
  5. And you don’t need to sacrifice choice or style!

Have you ever thought about going cruelty free or are you cruelty free? I would love to hear about the reasons why you chose to make the change! Let’s get a discussion going in the comments below!

Thanks for reading, Christina xo

  1. Love this. I’ve always tried to shop cruelty free as much as possible. These days, the quality of cruelty-free vs. non cruelty free is largely the same and no longer do you have to shop niche brands to find an ethical product. I never willingly seek out non-cruelty free products, but sometimes packaging lures me in or good reviews, and I’ll find out after that a product tests on animals. It’s negligence on my behalf for sure, but I’m getting better.

    What I really hate is how so many luxury brands (Dior, Chanel, YSL, La Mer, etc) charge the most but STILL test on animals. And then there’s the debate of if a brand is really, truly cruelty free even though they sell to China, like NARS and MAC. I feel like you can’t trust a lot of brands these days. For example, Tarte says they are cruelty free but is owned by Kose- a non-cruelty free company. So does Tarte secretly use ingredients that have been tested on animals like Kose???? It’s so hard to find the truth and I’ve tried so many times.

    I hope you don’t mind the essay of a comment, but it’s definitely nice to chat about these things. xo J

  2. Thank you so much for commenting! I totally agree on all points made!
    It’s disheartening to see high end, luxury brands not taking notice of this issue and changing their habits but still having a super high price tag!
    But it is also great that there are so many cruelty free brands these days that are rather mainstream. It makes buying cruelty free so much easier. We have so much more choice than before and it feels like these brands are really listening to their customers.
    But again, totally agree that it is a super confusing area to navigate. I’m personally of the view that if a particular brand is cruelty free but their parent company isn’t, I will still buy from that brand in the hope that my money is making an impact as a consumer.
    P.S. love your blog!
