    Thank you SO much for this! I’ve slowly started transitioning to a cruelty-free lifestyle, and I had no idea what I was going to do for our advent calendar this year. Now I have 26 different options lol. Would it be wrong to choose more than one?!

    Love this post, so helpful! I will admit that I want the M&S advent calendar though and I don’t know whether that is cruelty free?

      I’m not too sure which is why I didn’t list it! They do amazing products each year, but because of the wide variety of brands I didn’t want to misinform my readers x

    I had no idea that Soap & Glory were cruelty free! That’s really good to know, been one of my favourite brands foe years. Some great stuff in here and some brands I haven’t heard of. May have to pick something up! x
