Vicky makes her Ethical Elephant website and Instagram account lovely places to visit. She fills them with prettiness, but also doesn’t compromise when it comes to showcasing only vegan and cruelty-free beauty, style and food. She offers tips, guides and round-up articles to help readers find excellent beauty products, free of animal testing. We’re big fans of her Mani Mondays — this woman’s nails are impeccable!
Vicky gave us these as her current green-beauty picks:
The Green Bunny
When you watch one of Ashley’s videos, you see right away that — besides being adorbs — she really knows her green, cruelty-free beauty. She posts regularly on her own The Green Bunny YouTube channel and also on Integrity Botanicals’ channel. She often does makeup tutorials, or introduces new releases or various brands of a specific makeup type, like concealers or red lipsticks. Nicely done and super helpful!
A few picks from Green Bunny’s recent videos:
Vegan Beauty Review
Sunny is one cool woman and fun to follow for tips on vegan living. She focuses Vegan Beauty Review mainly on beauty, sharing her product reviews and some excellent DIY recipes similar to ones you’ll find in her awesome book, The Compassionate Chick’s Guide to DIY Beauty. She also throws in subscription-box reveals, food recommendations and apparel finds — all vegan friendly, but great for anyone. Her cat, Linky, ensures that all product picks pass inspection.
Some green-beauty products featured by Sunny and her kitteh, Linkenstein:
Mainly a blog, YouTube channel and Instagram account, Logical Harmony helps you shop cruelty-free beauty and offers excellent support for choosing vegan. Tashina runs it all as a polished, professional outfit, always introducing fresh new beauty-product reviews, tutorials and other articles. She also constantly updates cruelty-free brand lists and shopping guides — terrific for checking cruelty-free products by type or finding out what’s free of animal testing at major conventional stores like Sephora and Anthropologie.
As Suzi says, her Instagram feed is for “Animal lovers first. Makeup junkies second.” It’s a sweet, pink-ful place to visit for an extreme cute-animal fix, along with cruelty-free cosmetics recommendations. A minority of the products Suzi features are clean and natural but, when she does include a green-beauty product, it’s something wonderful. Visit the Cruelty-Free Kitty site too, for a cruelty-free brand directory, shopping guides and product guides.
Cruelty-Free Vegan Beauty
Visit Danielle on Instagram for makeup and skincare that’s vegan, cruelty free and usually natural. Her Cruelty-Free Vegan Beauty feed has a casual, personal vibe, like you’re following a friend. She offers helpful posts with her thoughts on popular products and sometimes video demoing hot makeup colors.
