10 Best Cruelty Free Drugstore Beauty Products

10 Best Cruelty Free Drugstore Beauty Products

Happy Beauty Top Tens Tuesday! Today I’m sharing my picks for the 10 best cruelty free drugstore beauty products. This was actually a tough one for me to narrow down! I’m featuring brands that you can find at Target, Ulta, Walgreens, CVS and

PR + purchased by me.

10 Best Cruelty Free Drugstore Beauty Products

1. Nyx Green Tea Blotting Paper
This is my go-to blotting paper. I’ve got 1 in the bathroom, 1 in my makeup bag inside my purse, 1 in my makeup room and 1 on my vanity.

2. Nyx Angel Veil Primer
This is an awesome skin brightening primer. Check out my review.

3. Marc Anthony Coconut Oil & Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner
The coconut oil, shea btter and biotin are all good for your hair. I feel like it really helps to add moisture back to my hair. If you don’t like this one, you can always check out the Oil of Morocco (Argan Oil) line. This is my favorite haircare line from the drugstore.

4.  Marc Anthony Oil of Morocco Volumizing Hairspray
This is my favorite hairspray to use. I’ve actually gone through 3 bottles, which is impressive for me since I don’t use it daily. It’s ideal for humid weather.

5. Batiste XXL Plumping Powder
This is my favorite hair volumizing powder. I use it at my roots to help add volume without teasing.

6. Batiste Dry Shampoo
This is my favorite dry shampoo. It comes in a million different scents. It works better for me than any other dry shampoo that I’ve tried.

7.  gud Body Wash
The gud line by Burt’s Bees is definitely my pick for the best drugstore body wash. I love the Pearanormal Activity scent. See my review.

8. Reviva Labs Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester, & DMAE Cream
This is a really nicely formulated night cream from Reviva Labs. It needs airless pump packaging though! See my review.

9. Prestige Total Intensity Eyeshadows
I really like these! Bewitched, Black Magic, The Chase and Bronze are gorgeous. See  my review.

10. Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadows
I have these and I need to review them. I think they’re a great eyeshadow formula from Milani and they’re Leaping Bunny Certified.

Make sure you check out the rest of the Beauty Top Tens Beauty Bloggers to see what they picked!

  • Awesome 🙂 Love your best lists, they are always my favorites! I really need to try the Angel Veil. I think the NYX Matte Lipsticks are also nice. I did try the Prestige Total Intensity when I saw them on your previous Best of List, and they are so pretty!! GUD Pearanormal is the BEST! I also love the Orange Blossom one(I think it’s called) I also really would like to try the Milani Gel Powders.. do they come in both matte and shimmer? I’m with you, I don’t like the packaging on so many of the Reviva products!

    • Oh I also wanted to ask you if you’ve tried the new 3C Color Correct and Contour Palette from NYX? They also have another new palette that’s just a Color Correcting Palette, it’s actually really great for the price, I was happy with how it covered redness!

  • Thanks for the great drugstore products review. I am going to try that Nyx primer when I finish my own – I am using the Nude by Nature one at the moment. I know if the NYX primer works on your skin, it will work on mine – seeing that we are both similar (fair, redness, sensitivity etc). It is such a pity that Milani is not in Australia – I could see all their products selling very well here. I can only get them online and pay ridiculous amounts in shipping costs. But I am going to check out the other products too.

  • Those Prestige shadows are definitely intense. The Milani are more my speed. I never think of Reviva Labs at the drugstore but I’ve seen it at health food markets so it should be on my list.
