10 Of The Best Vegan Products You Need To Add To Your Beauty Bag

10 Of The Best Vegan Products You Need To Add To Your Beauty Bag

Beauty products that are high-performing and vegan? Our dreams have come true.

By Gracie Clough | 17th September 2018

In this day and age, we are more conscious than ever about using beauty products that are vegan and preservative-free. Beauty brands are finally starting to answer our prayers and deliver us products that are not only high-performing but are also cruelty-free and contain no animal derivatives. While eating a plant-based diet is relatively straightforward, navigating the world of vegan beauty can be a little trickier at times. Let’s face it, product ingredient lists can be overwhelming at times, so we’ve narrowed down 10 of our favourite vegan beauty products to kick-start your vegan journey.

Australian Skin Institute Vitamin C Serum via Brazilian Beauty

Have you been struggling to find a cosmeceutical skincare brand that meets your vegan needs? One of our favourite Brisbane beauty destinations, Brazilian Beauty, offers a full range of Australian Skin Institute products that are scientifically proven and affordable. At Brazilian Beauty, you can experience highly results-driven vegan skincare treatments then pick up a bespoke ASI vegan skincare routine. Our top product pick? We can’t get enough of the ASI Vitamin C Serum. This serum uses nanotechnology to deliver the 25% vitamin c serum to the deepest layers of the skin to reveal a bright and clarified complexion. Can we bathe in this?

Ilia True Skin Serum Foundation

There’s a reason why this foundation is called ‘True Skin.’ This is the ultimate product for a flawless ‘my skin only better’ look and is extremely versatile. It can be applied sheer for a no-fuss everyday look or easily built up if you are heading off to an event. The best bit? Ingredients like jojoba and marula oils, aloe and rosehip will hydrate and plump your skin while minimising your pores.

Drunk Elephant Beste No.9 Jelly Cleanser

This pH balanced jelly cleanser will dissolve makeup and impurities without leaving your skin feeling stripped and tight. Thanks to the lack of irritating ingredients such as sulphates and essential oils, this all-rounder cleanser is perfect for all skin types.

Hynt Beauty Stella Loose Eyeshadow

Make your eyes pop with these user-friendly loose eyeshadow colours. These little pots of pigment are powered by skin-loving ingredients such as Organic Green Tea Leaf Extract and Organic Gotu Kola Extract. Our favourite shade? ‘Warm Bronze’. This is a gorgeous rich bronze shimmer that is guaranteed to suit every eye colour and skin tone.

Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash Mascara

This mascara was one of the most anticipated beauty launches of 2018 and for a good reason. This product will help you achieve your darkest, boldest, most ‘larger than life’ lashes thanks to the innovative mascara wand – all without giving you panda eyes.

Herbivore Botanicals Coco Rose Lip Conditioner

Finding vegan lip balms is one of the most challenging beauty hoops to jump through as many lip balms contain beeswax. This pot of magic from Herbivore Botanicals is enriched with organic virgin coconut oil and rose absolute and will perfect your pout in no time.

Ellis Brooklyn Fragrances

The fragrance house Ellis Brooklyn was founded by Bee Shapiro, New York Times Beauty Writer, so you could say she knows a thing or two about fragrance. Ellis Brooklyn fragrances are not only vegan, but also paraben and phthalate free, sourced responsibly and are sustainable. Our favourite scent is ‘Myth’ which is a delicate and feminine scent with notes of white musk, jasmine and white cedarwood. This fragrance is guaranteed to earn you compliments from passing strangers.

Clean Beauty Co Babe Multi-Purpose Beauty Balm

Have you ever wanted a product that could literally do it all? Well, we’ve found it. Use this product as a moisturiser, dewy highlighter, lip balm, cuticle cream, or even as a balm cleanser. You name it and this tropical-scented product can probably do it. If you aren’t already convinced, this product contains only the best ingredients such as Coenzyme Q10, Monoi, Squalene and Hibiscus to deeply nourish your skin.

RMS Beauty Un-Powder

Celebrity makeup artist Rose-Marie Swift knew beauty products could be kind to both our skin and furry friends, so she set out to create her own brand: RMS Beauty. While RMS Beauty is renowned for their coconut-oil enriched products, their setting powder is a vegan stand-out. This formula contains silica to set makeup and prevent an overly-shiny complexion without clogging pores. P.S. Rose-Marie is responsible for creating some of Miranda Kerr’s signature looks!

Luna Bronze Eclipse Tanning Mousse

Summer is just around the corner and it is inevitable we will be getting our fair share of Vitamin D, but it is important to be sun-safe and wear SPF. So, if you are wanting to achieve a bronze glow minus the sun then Luna Bronze has you covered. This chemical-free, vegan line will help you achieve the most natural-looking, streak-free tan all without damaging your skin. This tan is lightly fragranced with a pleasant botanical citrus scent and doesn’t give off the tell-tale fake tan odour.
