Beauty Finds is back with my July August finds!
When it comes to cosmetics and skin care I have a few requirements. No animal testing, no selling physically in China, no nasty ingredients such as petroleum, SLS’s, parabens etc Continue reading “July August Beauty Finds”
Today I’m sharing how I shop online for beauty products, more specially cruelty free beauty products. I’m sure most of these are obvious but seeing how I buy most of my cosmetics online I thought it would be fun to share my tips. So lets get to it!
When coming across a new brand the first thing I do is Google ‘X animal testing’. I came across this tip a few months ago as this way of asking rather than ‘does x test on animals’ brings a more definite yes/no answer. Sites I use for reference that pop up Continue reading “My Online Beauty And Cruelty Free Beauty Product Shopping Guide”
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.
Care2 announced yesterday that China will soon allow importation of non animal tested cosmetics!. Which is fantastic news, if and when it happens! Continue reading “October November Beauty Finds”

Thankfully being picky about ingredients and animal testing, I can just keep it under control.

My love affair with Korean skincare and cosmetics shows no sign of waning. It feels like with each product, I want to shout from the rooftops where’ve you been all my life! That’s not to say there haven’t been any duds, there have been. It’s like I’m having an aha moment with a few brands, they get crappy skin!
About 80% of the current products I’m using are Korean, so without further ado, March Beauty Finds.
