Do you feel conflicted knowing that many of the beauty products you use actually test their products on our furry little friends? Maybe you’ve really been wanting to make the switch to using only cruelty-free beauty products, but your teeny tiny budget just isn’t on board.
I have great news for you. There are more and more affordable cruelty-free drugstore brands available each year that are kind to animals and kind to your wallet.
Affordable Cruelty-Free Beauty Products
It’s a common misperception that all cruelty-free beauty products are expensive. More and more beauty brands are making the leap to do away with testing their products and ingredients on animals, and more and more consumers are making the switch to shopping more consciously.
There are so many affordable beauty brands out there that are cruelty-free and actually care about the welfare of our furry friends over cutting costs. Here are some of the best cruelty-free cosmetics, skincare, and haircare brands to be found at the drugstore.
1. Love, Beauty, and Planet
Love, Beauty, and Planet products have the BEST scents! This brand is easy to find, uses very clean ingredients, and they also use recycled plastic for its bottles.
Not only do Hask products smell amazing, but they don’t make your hair feel weighed down – you’re going to get great results from this brand.
They have a bunch of different options, so you’re sure to find one that works well for your hair type plus, a little goes a long way, so a bottle lasts longer than some other brands.
3. The Ordinary
The Ordinary’s mission is to pull back the curtain on the skincare industry and let consumers know that you don’t have to pay a million dollars for skin care.
They are very formula focused, and they have a ton of information on their website regarding usage, etc. Their products range anywhere from $5 – $25, so it’s really been an awesome way for me to try to expand my skincare regimen.

Who doesn’t love a good facial spray? Especially in the warmer months, a nice, cooling facial spray not only feels refreshing but refreshes your makeup as well.
