Be Kind and Cute with Cruelty-Free Beauty Products for Under R450

These days there are SO many different beauty brands available that cater for any makeup and skincare want and need. There have also been loads of advancements that make wearing makeup safer for our skin as well as the environment, with many brands making the move towards becoming cruelty-free. This outdated practice is all kinds of cruel and absolutely unnecessary but is, unfortunately, still a requirement if you want to sell your products in certain countries, such as China, which is weird considering that most brands would easily be able to find willing human guinea pigs to try out the latest products. While many of the big cosmetics houses don’t care much about our furry friends, fortunately, some of them do and putting together a more ethical makeup collection doesn’t have to break the bank, either. Here are our top picks of brands and products that are kind to the earth and just as kind on your wallet. 🐶 🐱 🐰 ❤️
