Finally, another cruelty free on a budget post! Hope you guys weren’t waiting for it for too long…;) Today’s post is going to be alllllllll about how to give your shower products a cruelty free makeover. There are TONS of cruelty free options that are budget friendly! You just need to do lots of research and find things that work for you.

Body Wash

One of my favorite things is a great smelling body wash. Pictured above is the Everyday Coconut Shower Cream in Coconut Mint. It smells great and I’m pretty sure it’s all natural. I own it and I use it every time in the shower. Some other options are Fruits & Passion (my mom bought me one of their shower creams when she visited Canada and I love it!), Pacifica (they have a variety of different scents), Lush (great products, but somewhat pricey), Shea Moisture and I’m sure that there are plenty more.

Shaving Cream

Who needs shaving cream anyways when you probably already have coconut oil? I use coconut oil to shave my legs and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I have incredibly sensitive skin and shaving just makes it 10 times worse, I can’t avoid razor burn or skin irritation with regular shaving cream. Oil and water don’t mix, so that’s also another reason why I like it. Shaving cream usually just rinses off half your leg while you’re working on a section, so the coconut oil just kind of sticks there so you can oil your leg up and not have to worry about wasting product by applying 2 or 3 handfuls of product. Coconut oil also moisturizes your legs and leaves them feeling baby smooth. If you feel the need to have a cruelty free shaving cream though, here are some options for you! Companies like Alba Botanica, Lush, and Kiss My Face carry cruelty free shaving creams. (Try out the coconut oil first though!)

Shampoo & Conditioner

Pictured above is Hask’s Monoi Coconut Oil Conditioner, I have a review on the whole collection here. Hask’s products are cruelty free and paraben free and they are very budget friendly. They work amazingly and I use them every time I’m in the shower. You can get Hask’s products at Ulta, Target or usually any other local store. Again, Alba Botantica, Lush, Pacifica (exclusive to Ulta I believe) and Shea Moisture carry different types of shampoos and conditioners as well as hair treatments.

Feminine Wash

I know most people say you shouldn’t wash your downstairs with soaps, but sometimes you just need to feel a little bit fresher and water just won’t do the trick. I wouldn’t suggest using a feminine wash everyday, but once in a while when you do need to freshen up shouldn’t be a huge issue. They can be helpful though to restore your pH balance which can help fight off bacteria and yeast infections. Pictured above is a feminine wash from The Honey Pot. They have a few different types of feminine washes in different scents and for different issues you may have. I’m not sure what other brands carry a cruelty free feminine wash, but remember you can use water and try not to get any soaps near your hoohah if they aren’t meant to be there!

I hope you enjoy the post and that you found some new products to try out in the future! Do you use any of these already? Let me know in the comments below 🙂

    I absolutely love using Coconut oil for everything! I end up buying a huge jar of, but it doesn’t last me very long. It has so many uses and like you said is completely cruelty free! I don’t typically look for things to be cruelty free, but if I have a better AND cheaper alternative to cruelty, I will definitely take it!

      I recently had a strange rash/maybe eczema break out and I put coconut oil on it and it cleared up right away! It’s amazing to take off eye makeup too. I love that it has so many different uses 🙂 Thanks for you comment!
