Christmas gift sets by small cruelty-free brands

Check out the Scottish Fine Soaps Company Facebook page for the 12 gifts of Christmas campaign.
I know every blogger and their pug loves a Lush gift set. Or an Liz Earl gift set. Or a Urban Decay eyeshadow palette. However Christmas is the perfect time to support an independent brand and small beauty companies based in the UK are much more likely to be cruelty-free than the big players.

So get the moolah out, gift your beauty loving friends an ethical product and help a small-business owner keep doing what they love. And maybe sneak in something for yourself...

The Scottish Fine Soaps Company

When a co-worker from India was travelling back for some family time he asked for my recommendations on UK-based beauty products for his beauty-loving relatives. Along with the usual cruelty-free high street favourites I recommended The Scottish Fine Soaps Company to him. And the result? His relatives demanded that he brings more of their products back with him next time.

I myself even got introduced to this brand when my uncle gifted me their Au Lait Pamper Kit a few years back.


A lovely brand I recently fell in love with when I got sent their body butter and beauty balm. The owner offers three gift sets of this natural and gentle skincare range. Sarah of SugarPuffFish recommends it for eczema sufferers.

Conscious Skincare

I'm yet to try this Welsh skincare brand, however it has long been on my to-try list. So that's a bit of a hint that I'd like one of their gift sets under my tree...


This is not a brand I've personally tried but they were recommended to me when I sent the tweet out about this post. They do a range of organic beauty products which you can order together to create a custom hamper.

Bulldog Skincare

A brand for the men now, and a brand that I have personally purchased gifts from for the men in my life. They are certified both by Cruelty-Free International and The Vegetarian Society, and their website states that their products are suitable for vegans.


I reviewed the hand cream and lip balm a few months ago and gave it a bit of a so-so review. However my opinion does appear to be the minority so maybe it's worth giving the extensive range of gift sets from this Jersey based company a look in.

White Rabbit Skincare

This is a small local company based out of Kilmarnock (a town not far south of Glasgow) that me and many other #cfbloggers rave about. Whilst the owner isn't doing giftsets per se she does do customisable travel sets and party favours if you fancy getting something from this Scottish, cruelty-free and vegan brand.

  1. Thanks for the mention, Lyonsleaf really is a great little company with products to match. I've yet to try White Rabbit although I've queried their labelling back in the Summer as it wasn't correct to regulation standards.

  2. love this! And love an introduction to some other brands! Sometimes I feel like im limited to Lush & Illamasqua for all my cruelty free face needs!

    Love xxx

  3. I've been looking for more cruelty free products so thanks for letting me know about these brands. Think I will give White Rabbit a try :) xx

  4. Great post! I always look for new cruelty-free brands, which makes these kind of articles my fav :)
