Extend your holiday spirit to our furry friends this December by checking out a few of these awesome animal-friendly brands!

Lush is known for their “all natural” approach to beauty, offering a wide selection of skin and bath products that are 100% vegan and made from natural materials. Lush embraces the delicious-smelling and moisturizing qualities of natural ingredients like sea salt, coffee beans, and honey in their popular bath bombs, body soaps, and lotions. They almost look good enough to eat! 

2. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics 

For any girl who loves to try out bright and daring makeup looks, check out Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. This is a high-quality cosmetic brand that prides itself on being 100% vegan and cruelty free. I definitely recommended picking up a few Lip Tars— intense, long lasting lip colors that are available in every shade of the rainbow!
