best vegan beauty products

If you’re already giving up chicken nuggets, sirloin steak and chocolate for Veganuary, we salute you. But, while we understand it’s easy to get swept up in a world full of quinoa salads and mushroom burgers, don’t forget that Veganuary doesn’t just stop at your diet.

You may or may not be aware that most of your beloved cosmetics brands have products containing animal by-products. Luckily, there are still plenty of completely vegan brands out there that are going to be your beauty saviours this month. We’ve selected the best vegan beauty products – covering skin, hair, body and makeup – to keep you on track this January, so you can still look your best as you tuck into that tofu.

Best vegan skincare products

REN Rosa Centifolia No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm

£21.87 £24.00 (9% off)

Switching your staple skin care products to vegan formulas doesn't mean that you have to compromise on quality. In fact, this cleansing balm from skin care giant REN works overtime to ensure that your complexion is left squeaky clean and healthy.

The rose-infused balm melts into a luxurious creamy milk when applied with water, which then removes dirt, oil and stubborn makeup, including waterproof mascara, leaving you fresh-faced.

BYBI Beauty Bakuchiol Booster Facial Oil

£13.00

Just because you’re cutting out the animal by-products doesn’t mean you have to compromise on the luxury. TheBYBI Beauty Bakuchiol Booster Facial Oil is every bit as gorgeous as you’d expect. Powered by bakuchiol, the vegan alternative to retinol, it works deep into the skin to restore balance and texture. Renowned for its anti-ageing properties, this vegan bottle of wonder is all you need to bring back your glow.

Farsali Skin Tune Blur

£20.00 £20.50 (3% off)

Didn't think a vegan formula could supply you with filter-like skin? Think again, as the Skin Tune Blur from Farsali does just that.

Working as a real-time photographic filter, this unique primer serum lightly 'blurs' pores, fine lines and imperfections leaving you with skin that's smooth, radiant and youthful. Whether you choose to use it as a makeup primer or a soft-focus serum, there'll be no need to Facetune your Insta pics ever again.

Q+A Snow Algae Intensive Face Cream

£11.11 £13.10 (16% off)

All of Q+A's formulas are proud to be 100% vegan, cruelty-free and clean, so you can rest assured that you're only putting the best of the best on your face.

The Snow Algae Intensive Face Cream is the staple product from their range as it packs the ability to hydrate and nourish dry skin. Packed with antioxidants, minerals and hydrators, it's your fast pass to a cushiony, comfortable complexion.


Best vegan makeup products

Stylpro Bamboo Barrel Makeup Remover Pads

£12.50 £12.99 (4% off)

The first step you can take to revolutionising your makeup routine, vegan style, is to ditch the makeup wipes. You may have already seen and heard about reusable cotton pads (thank you social media), but they really are makeup bag must-have. These Reusable Bamboo Cotton Pads from Stylpro successfully remove all traces of makeup without harming your skin, the environment and the animals.

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturiser Hydrating Gel Cream SPF 30

£19.99 £33.00 (40% off)

The Christmas diet and all that partying can leave your skin looking a little lacklustre. Thankfully, the bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturiser Hydrating Gel Cream SPF 30 infuses your complexion with pearlescent pigments to recover and enhance your natural luminosity. The vegan formula also contains hyaluronic acid to keep your skin hydrated and healthy throughout winter. Now that’s something we can get on board with.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

£15.00

Who would have thought that one of the world's best-selling, most iconic mascara is actually vegan? That's right ladies and gents, you can still indulge in holy grail products this Veganuary (and beyond), including the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara.

Just one sweep of this magic wand is enough to lift, curl, lengthen and darken your lashes.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade

£14.99 £23.00 (35% off)

Another cult-classic that's vegan? We love to see it. While not all of the products made by Anastasia Beverly Hills are vegan, some of your makeup favourites are, such as the Dipbrow Pomade.

If you're looking to boost your brow game this Veganuary, then this pomade is a great option. It defines, thickens and accentuates your natural brows, leaving you with arches even Cara Delevingne would envy.

e.l.f. Lip Lacquer

£3.85 £4.38 (13% off)

A makeup look isn't complete without a lashing of lippy, and we've got the perfect vegan formula for you.

The e.l.f. Cosmetics Lip Lacquer is a liquid lipstick and a favourite among beauty gurus and editors. It applies like a gloss but dries down to a budge-proof, smudge-proof and kiss-proof matte finish.


Best vegan hair products

Noughty Tough Cookie Conditioner

£6.25 £7.99 (22% off)

Noughty is one of the newer hair care brands to pop up on our radar, and we couldn't be more thankful. Their cruelty-free and vegan-friendly formulas are specially designed for those that want to be a little more wary about what they're putting on their hair. Harsh chemicals are swapped for naturally nourishing ingredients, meaning locks are left soft, bouncy and hydrated.

WE ARE PARADOXX Moisture Express Hair Mask

Crazy Color Pastel Spray Temporary Hair Dye
