The Best Cruelty-Free Skincare Routine Morning And Night

If you care about animal rights and the environment, you’re likely committed to finding cruelty-free products in your makeup and other skincare products. With the same passion and commitment, Epicuren Discovery’s cruelty-free products can be easily worked into your daily routine, and here we’ve curated an entire morning and evening skincare routine completely using cruelty-free products.

Why is Cruelty-Free Skincare Important?

Beyond the animal rights implications that product testing on animals has, there are several benefits for both the planet and your skin for using cruelty-free products. First, it ensures you’re supporting businesses and products that practice humane research and testing. Next, it lowers the demand for animals to be raised purely for testing, which takes up land, water, and resources that can negatively harm the environment.

Cruelty-Free Morning Routine


Start your day by setting a good foundation for your skincare products and makeup. Our best-selling Clarify Cleanser is both cruelty-free and vegan, which means no animals or animal byproducts of any kind were used to make this formula. This is best used for more oily skin types and for those who struggle with blemish-prone skin.


To ensure your pores are prepared to take in the rejuvenating and hydrating products in the rest of your routine, we recommend another vegan and cruelty-free product, our Rebalance and Rewind Vegan Collagen Toner. This is perfect for people looking to improve the look of fine lines and other visible signs of aging with vegan collagen ingredients.


If you’re not already using a serum, this is a great way to take your skincare to the next level with a simple step each morning. Our potent serums, including our cruelty-free Bio Peptide Complex, absorb onto the skin to help with your skincare needs and goals.

Specialty Products

At this point in your routine, you can move straight to your moisturizer or apply specialty products for added benefits. Some cruelty-free examples of these types of products include our CX Vitamin C Complex, or our Retinol Anti-Wrinkle Complex . No matter what concerns you have about your skin, we have a solution for you that’s cruelty-free.


Our best moisturizer, Hydro Plus Moisturizer, is cruelty-free and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth, while feeling lightweight for all-day comfort.


Our vegan and cruelty-free sunscreens include the very popular Zinc Oxide Perfecting Sunscreen SPF 27, which is essential whenever you’re expecting to spend time outside.

Cruelty-Free Evening Routine

Remove Makeup

Do you struggle to find a makeup remover that’s both effective and cruelty free? Try our luxurious, fragrance-free and cruelty-free Makeup Remover that’s especially effective at removing stubborn mascara and eye makeup.


Rinse the day away and brighten your senses with our Citrus Herbal Cleanser, powered by potent natural ingredients and essential oils. This cleanser opens up your pores and helps cleanse the skin with a pleasant foaming action.


Prep your skin for a good night’s sleep by dissolving all the day’s oils and debris that built up with our Refresh Aloe Cucumber Mist. This cools and revives the skin for better absorption of evening products.


One serum we recommend for you to get the most out of your nightly routine is our Strengthen and Rebuild Vegan Collagen Concentrate serum. This vegan and cruelty-free product is designed to rejuvenate the skins appearance with plant-derived collagen and soften fine lines as you sleep.

Specialty Eye Products

We love our hydrating and strengthening Eye Cream, especially for overnight moisture benefits to help you look alert and awake in the morning. Formulated with our cruelty-free Metadermabolic® Protein Enzyme Complex this potent eye cream hydrates and revitalizes the delicate skin around your eyes.


As you should each night, lock in the benefits of all your other great products with a hydrating moisturizer that helps your skin’s protective barrier. As a perfect end to your nightly routine, use our Evening Emulsion Enzyme Moisturizer that’s also formulated with our powerful Metadermabolic® Protein Enzyme Complex.
