Beauty Without Cruelty Review

Good morning everyone! I have a neat product review for you.  Or I should say products review. Today's brand is Beauty Without Cruelty. I am a vegetarian as well as an animal lover, so I try my best to be cruelty free. I'm not perfect, so don't sue me! But I'm thankful I was provided some animal & earth-friendly products to try out. These products are not tested on animals nor do they contain animal products. Let's take a look, shall we?


I received 3 travel mini products to try out: Rosemary Tea Tree Mint ShampooRosemary Tea Tree Mint Conditioner, & the Lavender Hand & Body Lotion. I also got a full size Attitude Nail Color in Summer Sky. I was able to choose which products, so I picked the items I thought I'd like best.


I made sure to read the directions in case I had no idea how to use it. Seems pretty standard. The ingredients are listed on the back, but the print is far too tiny for me/any human being to read. I liked that it's made in USA. I could read that much. The travel sizes are 2 oz. This makes it ideal for when you're a jet-setting blogger always on the run! 


The shampoo smelled great. It was really refreshing & invigorating due to the tea tree. As you can see, the consistency is pretty liquidy & clear. The Rosemary Tea Tree Mint Shampoo did not foam up as much as I'd like. I really love to feel the frothiness of the shampoo in my hair. I didn't know how much to use, so I kept adding more until I felt like it was working.


The Rosemary Tea Tree Mint Conditioner was creamy & thick. The scent was the same as the shampoo. Tea tree truly is an aromatic botanical, one that I love to use. The conditioner, however, did not leave my hair as soft as I would normally like. Just as with the shampoo, I felt like I kept adding product to reach my personal desired effect. I assume this is because of the natural ingredients. There's no synthetic fragrances or parabens. 

With that said, the shampoo & conditioner did do their jobs. It cleaned my hair & nourished it. Once my hair dried, it was shiny & pretty as can be. I made my boyfriend try out these products as well & he said "I liked it." Miracle product? Not really. Good product? Yes. These are definitely something to consider if you have a sensitive scalp or want to be more earth-friendly.



Okay, I am a huge lavender fanatic, so I really wanted to try this one out. The Lavender Hand & Body Lotion left my skin hydrated & happy. The lotion itself is thick but it blends easily with your skin. This is perfect to put on dry hands or elbows. The lavender scent is rejuvenating & mild. However, the scent is not long lasting. I put it on a couple hours ago, & I don't smell anything now. All the travel sized products retail at $2.99.


Last but not least, I tried out the Summer Sky nail varnish, & I must say it is my favorite item from the bunch. The color is gorgeous! It's a light blue, but it's not too light. You can still tell it's blue. It's a fantastic summer color, hence the name! Two coats of the polish are more than enough. Complete this look with a top coat to give it extra shine. I simply adore this color; I've received several compliments. The retail value of Summer Sky is $16.95.

I had a swell time using these products. I likely wouldn't purchase the shampoo & conditioner simply because they didn't do everything I'd like. They did their jobs, but it was not above & beyond. But that's just me. My boyfriend liked them a lot! I liked the lotion, but I wouldn't purchase this myself unless it was on sale or something. The Summer Sky polish was my favorite, so this is definitely something I would utilize often & purchase.

Thanks for reading! Will you check out any of these items? Do you like the Summer Sky polish color? Have you ever tried cruelty free products?

  2. That nail varnish is a really nice colour- it's such a shame that it's still such a rarity to see brands and products that aren't tested on animals!

    1. I totally agree. If there were more cruelty free brands, there'd be a higher quality of items to choose from. :]

    1. Yeah, this is definitely a good brand to try. Cruelty free is ideal but difficult due to limited options & a prevalence of animal by products! :p

  13. Oooo lovely products! I love the idea of using tea tree cosmetics, somehow it sounds so clean and refreshing (and I hear it's quite effective). I love animals so sometimes I wish I was a vegetarian too-- nevertheless, I still would rather use cruelty-free products! Esp love the beautiful blue of the polish!

    1. You can make the switch to vegetarianism. Or at least eat less meat on a weekly basis. :]
