While I certainly enjoy the full spectrum of cruelty-free products, I appreciate the convenience and value that come from popping into my local 24-hour drugstore at 10 p.m. when I have run out of health and beauty items. Cruelty-free products are now easier to find than ever, and you don't need to spend a fortune—after all, maybe you are saving up a bit to splurge on some Stella McCartney boots for the fall! These days, you can easily fill up your cart with shampoo, conditioner, body wash, bubble bath, laundry detergent, and lip gloss and still pay less than $10. The following are some of my favorite cruelty-free thrifty finds:
White Rain: Fabulous shampoos, conditioners, body washes, hair sprays, gels, and mousses—all for only $1 each.
Sun Laundry Care: Has a full line of detergents and softeners that typically cost anywhere from $1 to $3.
Mr. Bubble Bubble Bath: After all these years, they still makes the best bubbles no matter what your age is—and it's very gentle on your skin. Regular-size bottles usually run about $2, and just like when many of us were kids, you can still save up proofs-of-purchase and send away for the cool T-shirt!
Wet n Wild Cosmetics: Luscious lip glosses, eye shadows, liners, and more. Generally priced in the $1 to $3 range. Markwins, the company that owns Wet n Wild, also owns the Black Radiance and Tropez cosmetic lines.
Jane Cosmetics: Lots of deep pigment eye shadows, lip colors, mascaras, and super conveniently designed packages of mineral make-up. Jane products start at around $3.
Palmer's Skin Care: Rich cocoa butter and olive oil facial moisturizers, soaps, body lotions, and hair products—all affordably priced and starting around $2.
Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
