Vegan beauty products: The cult finds you had no idea were vegan-friendly

Vegan beauty products: The cult finds you had no idea were vegan-friendly

Being vegan isn’t easy. And we’re not just talking about giving up eggs and cheese.

If you’re truly committed to the cause, you’ll also want to try and bypass animal products in other everyday items, such as fashion and beauty. 

A few years ago, the idea would’ve been impossible. But now there’s more and more vegan-friendly brands to turn to; here to take the worry out of shopping, as you can pick up any item and know it’s a-ok (some of our beauty faves include INIKA Organic, A’kin and EcoTools).

But while other brands may not be vegan across the entire offering, it turns out some singular products (and cult ones at that) are vegan-friendly. And this is why it’s always worth checking the ingredient list…

Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask

Arguably the most talked about mask of 2019, the Jet Lag masked that launched the success of Summer Fridays is, in fact, vegan. Slather this on before bed or in the morning (it sits well underneath makeup) to watch dry skin disappear.


Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

Making a  vegan-friendly mascara can be tricky, let alone making one of the best-selling mascaras of all time, that just so happens to also be vegan. Yet another reason to get on the Better Than Sex bandwagon.
