I’m been into natural skin care for some time now, knowing how bad a lot of the ingredients are for us in the run of the mill skin care.
Makeup is, however, something I’ve been a bit slow to make the transition with. Not because I don’t think it matters, just because I’ve used a few natural makeup products in the past and they’ve been rubbish.
Now I’m really into using natural stuff, but even I draw the line at using products that suck just because they are natural especially when they are pricey.
However what’s even more important to me is that it’s cruelty-free. I’m girlie and I love some nice makeup, but not at the cost of lining the pockets of those who have animals in labs for the sake of vanity. I like to look nice, but you vote with your wallet and that’s where I draw the line.
I can’t deny I have makeup items that probably aren’t cruelty-free, in the past I hadn’t even thought about it. Now I do and going forward I’m making the switch. No longer will I contribute to animals suffering because I want a nice mascara or lippy.
There are so many great cruelty-free brands that I can’t find one good reason not to be cruelty-free. My current favourite cruelty-free brands are NYR, 100% Pure and PHB Ethical Beauty.
Check labels and make the switch. What you do makes all the difference. Every time you spend money on products that aren’t cruelty-free you might as well vote for cruelty-free practices to stay. I’ll say it again, you vote with your wallet.
I’m Kirsty Dee a wellness advocate. I'm not the super clean eating type, more the you should love yourself type. Kinda like junk food, forever wishing avocado didn't make me sad. So if your looking for real honest wellness with a bit of a woo-woo spiritual vibe to it then I've gotcha. Welcome to my corner of the internet 🧡
