Cruelty-Free Beauty Products

For some reason that I can't completely pinpoint, I've become very concerned about animal testing in the world of skincare, cosmetics, and household products. I don't think that I could ever commit to a vegan lifestyle (I live for cheese)-so I'll never preach for others to do so. I won't lie to you, I carry a leather bag and I eat fish, but I'm trying to make changes where I can. I visited Peta's website and I scanned their lists of companies that do and do not test on animals. I was very pleasantly surprised by some of the names that I saw on the list of companies that do not test on animals and I am committing to purchasing more products from these companies versus those on the other list.

I've pulled together the below collection of cruelty-free products that I either already love or am dying to try as a way to show you that it's easy to choose cruelty-free products, without sacrificing quality or selection (or breaking your budget)! Please let me know if you have any favorites that I should try!
