Cruelty-Free Shopping Guide: Debenhams

Debenhams is one of Ireland’s largest luxury department stores. The main cosmetic products sold in the store are makeup, skincare and fragrance. Unfortunately, Debenhams isn’t nearly as good for cruelty-free shopping as Harvey Nichols is, but there are a good few cruelty free cosmetic brands sold in the store. It is also unfortunate that Debenhams do not stock 100% cruelty-free and vegan brands, however there are some vegan products within the cruelty-free makeup brands that are available.
