Cruelty Free Product Reviews

I’ve compiled a list of Cruelty Free Product Reviews of makeup, skincare, and household products.  A few years ago, I decided to embark on a cruelty free lifestyle.  After learning of all the cruel and torturous things they do to test products on animals, I decided to go completely cruelty free. It’s a fun journey filled with a ton of research. I hope through this post to share some knowledge, give real reviews, and make it easier to go cruelty free too. ♥This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support:) If you’d prefer to check out the product without my Amazon link, I’ve included website links in which I receive no compensation. Happy Shopping!♥


Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz and Brow Definer I’ve used the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow wiz for a couple years…way before I knew it was cruelty free (Thank goodness it is!). I also began using her brow definer which has become my go to brow product. They are expensive, but they last for a long time, so it eases the sting of the price tag. They also come in 10 colors so you know you’ll find your shade. It blends really well and can be brushed through to your desired look with the awesome attached spoolie. If you’re looking for a brow product that lasts and lives up to all the hype, definitely give the Brow Wiz or Brow definer a try.

ELF Brushes and Brush Cleaner That’s Eyes, Lips, Face if you didn’t know.  You can find this brand at most drug stores, but I’ve gotten most of my brushes from Target. They are really inexpensive and last a long time. They are coming out with so many new brushes and they are high quality too. You really don’t feel like you’re spending less than $7 or $8. The brush cleaner is great for those daily brush cleanings and it smells wonderful. If you’re looking for inexpensive makeup brushes, ELF would be the perfect place to start.

Milani Extreme Liquid Eyeliner I’m pretty sure I’ve been using this eyeliner for over 10 years. It is one of my all time favorites. It’s easy to apply, jet black, and doesn’t budge until you tell it to. I’m not sure if they’ve always been cruelty free, but thank goodness they are. It’s affordable, lasts a long time, and so easy to use…even for a liner novice.

Too Faced Cocoa Powder Foundation One of my favorite high end brands. They have a great range of products. But my favorite by far is the Cocoa Powder Foundation. It smells like chocolate! Pretty hard not to lick my face when I use it. IT goes on smoothly and blends well. It’s definitely light to medium coverage, so if you’re looking for a full coverage powder, this is probably not the one for you. Great to put over a liquid foundation though. I did notice that they discontinued some of the colors, so the darker your skin the more difficult it is to find. Smells wonderful and goes on well.

Cover FX Foundation Drops These foundation drops are magical! You can pretty much make your own foundation depending on whatever you blend it into. I’ve used primer, moisturizer, SPF, and facial oil. You can make it sheerer or fuller coverage based on how many drops you use. I’ve gotten the best results using their primer, but don’t let that stop you from experimenting! They’re expensive…not gonna lie. But I’ve had a bottle last me for a year. And they have 24 different shades. You can put powder foundation or setting powder on top and voile! Flawless skin.

Skin Care

Coola I use their Unscented Matte Tint SPF. I’m onto bottle number 5 or 6 now. It’s that amazing! It’s so light and blendable. No white cast…even on my brown skin. And it soaks into the skin really well. It gives a very small amount of color so if you’re looking for a full coverage SPF, you may want to try something else. Such a great product, especially for us girls who are on the oily side. This is a great brand in general. I’ve been able to try some of their other products such as their new SPF Primer, but nothing will compare to my Matte Tint.

Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Daily Peel I’ve been using the Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peels for about 7 years now. They are amazing! You will never so your skin look so clear, bright and glowing as you do the morning after using one of these peels. Can’t say enough good things about them. They make your skin look younger. They help with brightening and getting rid of dark spots and acne. They’re not harsh or irritating. The only thing is the price. They can be expensive so I tend to use them every other day. I also purchase from Ebay to combat the price. Just be careful and make sure they’re a reputable seller and aren’t giving you expired product. You’ll thank me for this one. I promise.

Paula’s choice A great range of products that work! They have so many great products geared towards mature skin. You can never start to early in my opinion. But my favorite and most effective is the Benzoyl Peroxide Treatment 2.5%. Paula’s Choice offers it in and 5% as well if you want something a little bit stronger. You can use it as a spot treatment, but it’s gentle enough to be massaged over the entire face. There’s a noticeable difference of skin clearing when you sleep in it and I even wear it under my makeup. It’s more expensive than a drug store brand, but you can make it last longer by only using it at night. It doesn’t irritate my skin or make it flaky like some benzoyl peroxide products can. They offer travel sizes if you want to try it out and save a little bit of money.

Eminence My husband running a spa has its perks. He introduced me to the Coconut Age Corrective Moisturizer. This Moisturizer is amazing! A little goes a long way too. Just a pinky nails work will cover your whole face and it corrects over night.  It makes my skin look so good when I wake up. I’ve used their Stone crop gel wash as well. It’s such a great skin care line. But this little beauty is my all time favorite!
