A couple of vegan and clean skincare goodies I got from my first order from @thedetoxmarketcanada! 🌿✨ My skin has changed so much in just the past year alone. I went from very oily skin to acne-prone to eczema flare-ups and now surface dryness πŸ˜” So lately, I've been looking into the ingredients of all my skincare products and consciously trying to make an effort to buy clean, non-toxic, and organic products.  This is my second bottle of @oseamalibu's Blemish Balm, it's an amazing lightweight moisturizer that has really helped clear up my skin without drying it out or trigger my eczema. 🌸 I also wanted to try their Atmosphere Protection Cream which claims to hydrate and help provide barrier protection against visible damage caused by environmental stressors such as dry climates, wind and air pollution. 🌍 I’d love to know, what are some non-toxic & vegan skincare products/brands are you currently loving or would recommend?? πŸ’•

My lips are instantly and intensely hydrated thanks to @nclabeauty’s [NEW] 100% Natural & Vegan Lip Balm! πŸ’‹ They have 8 flavors to choose from including Red Velvet, Almond Cookies, Marshmallow, and Watermelon!! πŸ‰ πŸ‰ πŸ‰  This watermelon Balm Babe smells and tastes like watermelon candy! Formulated with shea butter, cocoa butter, avocado butter, and coconut oil.
I love how light and moisturized this lip balm feels and I especially love how it doesn't leave that waxy feeling behind πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
Most lip balms on the market contain beeswax, lanolin, or honey, making them NOT vegan. And then there are some other brands that are NOT cruelty-free including Nivea, Chapstick, EOS*, Blistex, Aquaphor, and Vaseline.
*Note: EOS is sold in-stores in China but they claim that since they manufacture their products in China, they do not need to test on animals as required by law. However, EOS' products are still at risk of POST-market animal testing where Chinese officials will pull products off from store shelves and test them on animals, this is often done without the company's knowledge or consent. So at this time, we do not feel comfortable classifying any beauty brand selling their products in-stores in China to be "cruelty-free" to our standards.

Vegan Drugstore Nail Polish Brands

This post may contain affiliate links.

Until recently, I would only buy nail polish in-stores and usually it was at the drugstore! But when I decided to go cruelty-free and vegan with my beauty products, the nail polish options at the drugstore were very limited.

Not only do most drugstore nail polish brands test on animals like OPI, Sally Hansen, Revlon, and L’Oreal but some of them also use animal-derived ingredients like fish scales for that shimmer.

Now I buy most of my nail polish online and if you’re in Canada, then I highly recommend checking out Nail Polish Canada! Shipping is fast and affordable. You can also find a full list of cruelty-free and vegan nail polish brands here.

Vegan Drugstore Nail Polish

But for those of us who prefer to buy our nail polish at the drugstore because not only are they more affordable but you can see the color in-person, then this list is for you!

E.L.F. Cosmetics

ELF is a popular cruelty-free makeup brand that you can find at most drugstores including Target, CVS, London Drugs, and most recently Superdrug started carrying the brand! They don’t have nail polish listed on their website right now so I’m not sure if they’ve stopped making them but lots of stores still carry their vegan nail polish, especially in the box sets!


Pacifica is a 100% vegan beauty brand. You can find Pacifica products at Target and Ulta. I’m obsessed with their 7-free vegan nail polish, they’re more expensive compared to other drugstore brands but you definitely get your money’s worth!

Wet N Wild

Update: May 2019. wet n wild is no longer considered cruelty-free as they were recently caught selling their products in mainland China where post-market animal testing may be conducted on their products. We no longer recommend any of wet n wild products as a cruelty-free option.

Barry M

Barry M has a bunch of nail polish options from coconut-infused, matte finish, quick dry, and special limited edition colors! And the good news is that they’re all considered to be vegan! You can shop for Barry M vegan nail polish at Superdrug.

Mineral Fusion

Mineral Fusion’s nail polish are vegan and do not contain any animal-derived ingredients, I have tried several of their polish before and love them all! I often find them on sale at London Drugs and also CVS just recently started carrying Mineral Fusion so definitely check a store near you to see if they have them in stock!

ORLY is my go-to favourite drugstore vegan nail polish! Their color options are endless and I especially love how affordable they are! You can find ORLY vegan nail polish at Target and Ulta.

    On their website, GOSH says only some of their products are vegan. (they don’t list which ones are or aren’t)
