    The body shop are owned by Loreal who do test on animals. In fact have a look here https://www.gocrueltyfree.org/ it tells you who does and doesn't test on animals - and https://www.uncaged.co.uk/crueltyfree.htm are even more in depth. It depends how far you want to take it as a lot of places produce cruelty free make up but are owned by companies that do test on animals.

    If you can find E.L.F. cosmetics, it is as cheap as make-up gets- I paid one dollar for a double tube of mascara (waterproof on one side, regular on the other) and it works beautifully. They do not test on animals, and the only animal product they ever use in their cosmetics is beeswax. They're actually endorsed by PETA, so they're definitely considered animal-friendly!

    As usual BNB ladies have the answers. Thankyou. Will check out those websites, may even find something for me!
    I knew L'oreal were a no no, but did not realise they owned The Bodyshop.

    I've heard before that the only reason they have makeup now that's ''not tested on animals'' is because they already did the testing and research for it in the past so they don't need to anymore. I'm not sure there's any *new* makeup out there that's never been tested on animals (though I could be wrong). I lean towards most makeup formulas existing off the backs of previous animal research unfortunately. BUT, it IS still good that they're not testing *anymore* for those particular makeup products.
