December January Beauty Finds

I can’t believe it’s March already, we’re transition into a new season and I’m posting about December January Beauty Finds. Our skin renews itself about every 4 weeks so if I like something I like to give it more than a month to see if it works.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

October November Beauty Finds

I received some great news yesterday. As many of you know long before I became a vegan I’ve always opted for cruelty free beauty products. No animal testing please. Thanks to Leaping Bunny and PETA I’ve managed to stick to this. (Thankful too that my beloved Korean products also don’t!). For a long time it was down to the company’s ethics if they tested or not. A few years ago the EU banned all cosmetic animal testing with various organisations putting pressure on other countries to follow. So many brands I’ve avoid mainly due to China. I found out a few years ago while some companies say they don’t test on animals, if they sell physically in stores in China that means the products have been subjected to 3rd party animal testing as required by Chinese law, for all imported cosmetics. China did ban a few years ago animal testing on domestic products but imported products were still required to be tested. This meant I’ve left a lot of products on the shelf. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Amazon has a great range, I discovered that Narson ships to Spain and now iherb has it’s own K-Beauty range! Thankfully being picky about ingredients and animal testing, I can just keep it under control.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
