Finding quality budget-friendly beauty can be a struggle, but shopping cruelty-free shouldn’t be. That’s why I’ve compiled this list of cruelty-free drugstore brands for you. There are so many great affordable cruelty-free brands out there! It’s great to see so many accessible and affordable brands saying NO to animal testing.

Cruelty-Free Drugstore Brands

For this list, I’ve categorized a brand as “drugstore” if they’re easy to find in stores like Target, Walgreens, and Walmart, as well as being relatively inexpensive.
