Cruelty Free On A Budget: Take Your Hair On Holiday With This Luxurious Haircare Range

As the blizzards and the baltic weather conditions begin to disappear at last, the residue of Ireland’s coldest winter has been left in our dry, damaged hair. The cold hair has stripped essential moisture from our locks, and no hair mask seems to fix it.

Recently I discovered UK celebrity hair stylist Phil Smith.  Having worked for Toni & Guy for two decades, alongside styling the hair of the likes of Michelle Keegan and Tess Daly, Smith has earned many award-winning titles throughout his career. However, what has remained a priority throughout his successful stylist life is his passion for cruelty-free beauty.

The Phil Smith BE GORGEOUS haircare range is officially certified by the Leaping Bunny Program by Cruelty Free International, which is the world’s only internationally recognised cruelty-free certification program. Flawless and Pawless favours this certification over the likes of PETA and Choose Cruelty Free as the process requires independent audits from the company and their suppliers.


The luxurious haircare range offers a variety of products to address all haircare concerns; blonde/brunette colour care, soothing care, volumnising and texture, dry shampoo and many more. This brand is a fantastic cruelty-free alternative to John Frieda.


I have spent the last week in a coconut cocoon having been sent the Phil Smith BE GORGEOUS COCO-LICIOUS range to try. I can’t stop using it. I even washed my hair twice in one day on the day I received it, just to try it again.

The COCO-LICIOUS Coconut Oil Range promises to:

  • Give hair a weightless feel
  • Replenish moisture
  • Provide a lightweight but nourishing cleanse
  • Leave hair soft and shiny

The scent of these products is to-die-for. Personally, I would tend to avoid coconut-scented haircare products as I usually find them too sweet and overpowering, but I can honestly say this is the first coconut haircare range that I LOVE.

The Phil Smith BEGORGEOUS range’s prices start from €2.85 and is available at Sainsburys stores across the U.K. and to order online to ship to Ireland.

      Hi Maureen, thank you for your comment. The entire Boots range is cruelty-free, which includes No. 7. They are actually working towards receiving the Leaping Bunny certification and are committed not to enter the Chinese market, where it is required by law to test on animals.
