Summer makes everything better and everything brighter, but you want to make sure that you have the right products to take on the searing heat and we are here to help. We want to make sure that you are all kitted out for your summer travels without investing your money into corporate businesses that support animal cruelty. These five animal cruelty-free beauty products from various brands are bound to make you cool for the summer.
The Body Shop Shade Adjusting Drops
The Body Shop were the first global beauty brand to fight against animal testing in cosmetics and all of their products do not test on animals including this summer essential.
In summer our skin tone tends to differ for those lucky enough to get a golden brown tan, meaning that you need to change your foundation to a darker shade. However, buying the same foundation in a darker tone can be a bit of a pain and adds up in price, but with The Body Shops shade adjusting drops, you can alter your current foundation at home to become darker or lighter. At just £10 each, you only need one drop to make your foundation a shade darker or lighter for the perfect summer look.
St. Tropez Tanning Mousse
A glowing tan can boost any girl’s confidence in the summer and makes you feel like a golden goddess when you show your legs off, but that doesn’t mean we have to do it at the expense of innocent animals. St. Tropez tanning products are completely against animal testing and are by far one of the best tans out there. You certainly can’t go wrong with their Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse at £20.50 for 120ml. A lot of tans claim to be streak free but this one really is and lasts for days! Simply cover your body head to toe with a tanning mitt and leave for at least four hours to sink in before having a shower to wash away any excess.
Too Faced ‘Better Than Sex’ Waterproof Mascara
When you’re on holiday, you don’t always feel that glamorous sweating away by the pool but nothing should stop you from dive bombing in to cool yourself down. The Too Faced ‘Better Than Sex’ Waterproof Mascara is the perfect poolside essential which won’t leave you panicking about looking like a panda after a morning swim with clumpy lashes. The hourglass-shaped brush gives you lengthened and curlier lashes with extreme volume which is bound to get you all of the attention by the pool or beach.
Palmers Dark Chocolate & Cherry Ultra Moisturising Tinted Lip Balm
There’s nothing worse than waking up with red raw lips after forgetting to apply an SPF lip balm whilst catching some rays. The Palmers Dark Chocolate & Cherry Ultra Moisturising Tinted Lip Balm is perfect for applying during the day with its SPF 15 protection to help protect chapped, cracked, or windburned lips. Enriched with Vitamin E, you can also benefit from its slight red tint to give you a pop of colour whilst staying safe in the sun. To make it even better, it is completely animal cruelty-free.
Superdrug Style Expertise Anti-Frizz Serum
Superdrug’s own brand beauty products are the perfect option for affordable products that don’t test on animals, and for those looking for an anti-frizz hair serum, you don’t need to look any further. Their Style Expertise Anti-Frizz Serum adds shine to dull and frizzy hair that has been exposed to the heat for too long. It can help tame split ends and saves your style when the humidity hits. All you need is a small pea-sized amount to work through damp hair to keep that frizz under control this summer.
