Skincare, Cruelty Free

Now I’m no expert by any means on skincare or anything else for that matter, but after volunteering at the sanctuary and learning about all things animal; most good but some not so good I’ve changed not only my eating habits, but my beauty routine as well. I only use cruelty free products, products that are not tested on animals nor are their ingredients.  I do the same with make-up, but I do have some products that I just love, so I will use them up and then find the cruelty free version.img_3905

Keep in mind that these are my opinions and I am not compensated by any of these companies. I truly use them and like the results. You may ask why I use things from different companies, truth is, it’s trial and error. I use French Girl Organics cleansing wash and floral toner. French Girl Organics is 100% vegan and cruelty free, they say that products are “only tested on French girls.” Their products are gentle and smell beautiful.

Another favorite is One Love Organics. I discovered them because one of their products was featured in a magazine (I don’t remember which one) and also a blogger I follow recommended them. When I read that they were cruelty free, vegan and organic I knew I had to try them. I love the Skin Savior, Brand New Day Microderma Scrub and the Vitamin E eye balm. Again, the products smell divine and keep my skin moist and smooth. One other reason to love them…the company is out of St. Simons Island, Georgia where I lived for a few years and still visit quite often. A beautiful place for a company to make beautiful products!

Herbivore Botanicals is another great cruelty free, vegan, organic beauty company and the packaging is even recyclable and reusable. I just love their Pink Cloud face cream; it’s light and creamy not oily or sticky.

As for other products like toothpaste and soap, I use Tom’s of Maine toothpaste and I get our soap and body lotion from Whole Foods/Whole Body where all of the products sold are cruelty free. Our toothbrushes are from recycled materials, I haven’t yet tried the bamboo.img_3906

Why am I writing this? Because the average person doesn’t think about the fact the almost every product that you use on a daily basis, whether it be on your body or to clean your house, is tested on a poor defenseless animal. I know I didn’t until I became involved with rescue. If you are animal lover like I am, try switching…it will be good for you and good for the animals.
