Women take forever in bathrooms – men say. Indeed, women need more time to treat themselves as they somehow tend to care for their bodies more. OK it was taken with a pinch of salt 😉
I love to care for my body too, and altough I don’t have too many cosmetics I pay close attention to what I use.
I use vegan cosmetics only 🙂 And although these are vegan, they don’t cost too much at all.
Bell – pressed powder – up til the beginning of 2017, Bell was cruelty free. At the beginning of 2017 Bell participated in trade fair in China and nobody knows why.
Problably Bell wanted to enter Chinese market but there was this law in China saying that all cosmetics should be tested on animals and it was obligatory.
I don’t know. I bought this pressed powder three years ago, it doesn’t contain animal derived ingredients and was manufactured on the territory of the EU.
The European Union law doesn’t allow to test cosmetics on animals. Bell didn’t enter the Chinese market as it was planned (planned – as it was the aim of the presence at the trade fair in China, I guess).
Rival de Loop – micellar cleansing water and face masks – German producer which is absolutely vegan.
Alva – mascara – British vegan producer.
Paul Penders – lipstick – Dutch vegan producer.
Bielenda – BB Cream – Polish vegan producer, who entered the Chinese market some time ago what makes me confused. Bielenda wanted to sell their products in Hong Kong which doesn’t require tests on animals and Polish cosmetics have been present in Hong Kong for quite a long but Bielenda doesn’t give the clear anwer to my questions.
To be honest, I don’t use make-up everyday as the most important thing for me is when my skin breathes 🙂
But these are brands which I use for make-up only.
For everyday use I choose Alterra – shampoo and body wash 🙂
You see? It is not that complicated to live cruelty-free 🙂 I encourage you to try 🙂
Once you try and put your heart in the change, you’ll find yourself on the right track ❤
