One of the biggest concerns when it comes to switching to cruelty-free products is budget. This summer, let me know you how affordable shopping cruelty-free can be! With more and more brands going cruelty-free, you can find a ton of great products that fit all of your needs.

For this post, I’ve partnered with Walmart to bring you my cruelty-free summer picks for skincare, makeup, and hair. Walmart offers a wide range of cruelty-free brands and beauty products to choose from that won’t break the bank, and you can shop both in stores and online.

Pick #1: Milani Keep It Full Nourishing Lip Plumper

The Keep It Full Lip Plumper ($7.97) a multi-tasking lip product that contains peptides to boost collagen and hyaluronic acid to keep lips hydrated. It’s not sticky and comes in many beautiful shades — I chose the shade Wild Rose, a neutral nude. I love this lip plumper because it’s comparable to higher-priced products, but costs a fraction of the price.

Pick #2: Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara

Since Covergirl went cruelty-free, I picked their most highly-rated mascara to try. Clump Crusher ($5.86) lives up to its name, because it separates lashes nicely while giving them a good coat of mascara. It’s perfect for natural, summery looks and doesn’t transfer. I love to use it on my lower lashes for those reasons.

Pick #3: The Beautyblender

Did you know that you can buy your beautyblender ($16.99) from Walmart? They’re available online in every color. A beauty sponge is hands down my favorite way of applying foundation because of the natural finish they give.

Pick #4: Derma E Anti-Wrinkle Treatment Oil

The Anti-Wrinkle Treatment Oil ($10.40) is a Vitamin A oil serum, also known as Retinyl Palmitate. Vitamin A helps with issues like skin texture, fine lines, and even blemishes as it encourages skin cell renewal. It’s an effective ingredient recommended for most skin types, and this product from Derma E is suitable for sensitive skin. I like to use it to treat breakouts overnight as soon as they appear.

Pick #5: SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl and Shine Shampoo

I love SheaMoisture, and their Coconut & Hibiscus Shampoo ($9.97) smells absolutely incredible. If you’re a coconut fan, go give this one a sniff! It’s sulfate-free, and is made with certified organic and fair trade shea butter. This shampoo is meant for thick, curly hair, but my wavy hair has been loving it for the extra moisture.
