Is Going Vegan Your 2018 Resolution? Here are 8 Cruelty-Free Beauty Products to Try

Start Veganuary the right way.

With the new year comes the chance to become a better you. Often people choose to clean up the diet by trying vegan meals to see if it the hype is real. Leading a vegan lifestyle means that you no longer consume animal-based products. This includes food, fashion and beauty items as well. After a solid Google search, finding a vegan grocery list and replacements for leather and faux fur is simple enough, but revamping your makeup and skincare routine can be a chore.

You could always go the DIY route and concoct new products for your face and skin, but that’s for pros. To get you started this year, we’ve curated a skincare starter kit so you can start 2018 fresh and cruelty-free.

Cleanser: Lush “Let The Good Times Roll” Cleanser

Lush

As you adjust your diet, expect your skin to change for the better. Your body will respond well to the wholesome nutrients coming from your healthy meals. Lush uses ingredients like maize flour, polenta and popcorn to create a facial cleanser that’s almost good enough to eat. The gentle scrub can be made into a paste that will cleanse your skin to reveal a nourished layer. The $13 USD cleanser can be used year-round whether your vegan commitment is short or long term.

Toner: Pixi Beauty Glow Tonic

Foundation: NARS Sheer Glow Foundation

Sephora

If you haven’t heard by now, NARS‘ $50 USD Sheer Glow foundation is worth it. The brand’s creator, François Nars, is vegan so it’s only right that his line of cosmetics is held to the same standard. This complexion product not only enhances the skin’s tone but also protects it from free radicals. It’s also infused with turmeric and Vitamin C to give a glow that can’t be beat. Shine all year long with this lightweight foundation — pick up your shade now at Sephora.

*Please note that NARS no longer is considered cruelty-free due to its sales in China.

Concealer: Tarte Shape Tape

2018 Best Cruelty Free Vegan Beauty Products Nars Too Faced Body Shop Lush Cosmetics Skincare Foundation Pixi Toner Primer Concealer Makeup

Tarte

Thank the stars Tarte‘s holy grail tape concealer is a cruelty-free item. We already confessed our love for the product but to remind you it’s unlike anything on the market. The two-in-one concealer color-corrects any pigment issues and also provides a soft finish. Amazonian clay and mango seed oil provide a nutritious base for the skin to be protected throughout the day. You can one ounce of the long-lasting product online for $25 USD.

Makeup Remover: Pacifica Kale Water Micellar Cleansing Tonic

2018 Best Cruelty Free Vegan Beauty Products Nars Too Faced Body Shop Lush Cosmetics Skincare Foundation Pixi Toner Primer Concealer Makeup

Ulta

You knew it was coming. Kale is not only a staple food in a vegan diet due to its high iron content, but it also works as a skin treat. Makeup wipes are a quick and easy fix but aren’t the most sustainable way to remove your makeup. Products like Pacifica‘s Kale Water Micellar Water are perfect for makeup removal and face cleansing. Using a washable towel or swab, you can use this formula to relieve your skin of makeup and lift away any dirt or impurities. The gentle product is also pumped up with glycolic acid for a refreshing boost. This $12 USD product is a vegan must-have.
