My fellow Beauty Blogger Amy over at Health and Beauty Girl and I have collaborated on this blog idea. So be sure to pop on over to her blog and see what her top 5 or 6 😉 items are!

Live Clean

My Top Natural & Cruelty Free Beauty Product

They are pretty new to me, but once I tried one, not soon after my shopping cart was filled with a variety of their items!  There isn’t a product that I have tried that I would not repurchase again!

Live Clean is 100% cruelty free.  They work very closely with their suppliers to make sure that “none of the individual ingredients are tested on animals”.

Live Clean is 98% Plant Derived, pure vegan, biodegradable ingredients and the packaging is recyclable.

Live Clean products are free of : 
SLS, Sulfate, Petrolatum, DEA, Paraben, Dye,Silicone, Phthalate and Phosphate.
Live Clean is an affordable, Canadian Brand that is Natural and Environmentally Conscious of the Earth.  Check out their Live Clean Challenge and do your part!
Natural, affordable, accessible, and Canadian. Can’t beat that!
My Top Natural & Cruelty Free Beauty Products - Root Pretty
Root Pretty is fairly new to me. But that does not stop the LOVE!
I instantly fell in love with the Pretty Gloss and the 100% Lash Mascara is awesome as well!
I will have a full review coming up in the near future for Root Pretty, so I will not go into much detail!
Root Pretty’s packaging speaks for them!  They are vegan, gluten free, paraben free and 100% Natural. They contain no Artificial Dyes and are Fragrance Free. The Mascara smells like a vanilla cupcake!
My Top Natural & Cruelty Free Beauty Products

I had the honour of chatting with Krista, the founder of Root Pretty, through email.  Krista stated that they “are committed to being a cruelty free company”.  Root Pretty is made in the USA and their packaging is all recyclable!




My Top Natural & Cruelty Free Beauty ProductsThis was the first Natural Mascara that I tried when I made the switch earlier this year. It is in a tie with Root Pretty Mascara for being my favourite mascara!

Pacifica uses coconut oil and infuses the mascara with Vitamin B, which in my opinion has really helped with my lashes to grow to new lengths!

They are 100% vegan and PETA Certified!  They contain no FD & C colour. Are free from parabens, talc and mineral oils.

Pacifica also prides themselves on reducing the foot print and impact on the environment. Their boxes are made from 100% recyclable materials. Both the box and product are 100% recyclable as well!  The product and packaging do not lack beauty just because it is recyclable material either! Check out the packaging and box here.

Silk Naturals 

My Top Natural & Cruelty Free Beauty Products

Silk Naturals was the first real haul I did on Natural products because they offered sample sizes and are super affordable!  Even with the exchange rate (US to CND) it was still worth it!

My favourite product that I got from them was their Kisser Slickers!  They are organic lip glosses that contain organic oils and beeswax.  They contain 85% organic ingredients and smell like vanilla!

This lip gloss is super moisturising and the colour is light but the colour pay off is nice.  Giving my lips the light colour that I need on days I just need to put something on but don’t want to fuse!

Silk Naturals is PETA Certified and 100% Cruelty- Free. They offer vegan options for a lot of their products as well!

FitGlow Beauty

My Top Natural & Cruelty Free Beauty Products

There’s not much more I can say about this amazing product! I LOVE it! 🙂 Check out my full review on this product here.

So lets touch base on some things that I might not have covered in my full review.

I had the pleasure of talking, through email, with the lovely founder, Anna!  I also had the brief opportunity (I was tight for time and couldn’t stay long :() to see her in person when she was down in my city.  She is beautiful on the inside and outside!  She lives and breathes health and wellness and that is what FitGlow is all about!

The Vita-Active Foundation is 98% Organic, 95% Whole Food Based, has Vitamin C and Botanical Hyaluronic infused.  It is also vegan.

FitGlow is a “Leaping Bunny Certified, Cruelty Free company and they go beyond to ensure that none of our suppliers test on animals”. They also do not use synthetic fragrances, parabens or dyes.
