I found one of the most amazing companies; Beauty Without Cruelty. Wanna know why they are so amazing? Well, not only do they offer beautiful, high quality make-up; But they also offer Cruelty Free make-up!
Beauty Without Cruelty was actually the very first company to offer cruelty free cosmetics. They started offering cruelty free cosmetics all the way back in 1963. See, there is absolutely no need to test on animals. It's not required, and it sure isn't effective. With the technology the world has today, do you really think we can't test our make-up on something else? Of course we could! The thing is, is that MOST companies don't want to spend the initial cost that it would take to switch over to being cruelty free. Can you believe that? Rather then spending a little extra money, they would rather torture millions of animals each year. I don't know about you, but I don't support cruelty. I recently read up a little on some of the tests that are performed on animals for cosmetics; and they are so horrid! I read in one article that there is a test called the "Draize Test." In that certain test they will pour caustic substances into rabbits eyes to see how much damage is done to the tissue of the eye; It is actually so painful for the rabbits that they will actually scream out in pain, and sometimes they will run around so hard, that they snap their necks. How horrible is that? I could NEVER support a company that did that to bunnies. That's why I only use these amazing cruelty free products; Like the ones from Beauty Without Cruelty.
For my review from Beauty Without Cruelty, I received the "Rosehip" Lipstick. It is so beautiful and vibrant! I'm one of those girls that thinks every woman should own at least one bright red or pink lipstick. Well, I've got mine!
(Me wearing my gorgeous Rosehip Lipstick.)
The lipstick is so smooth, and it lasts too! It's not one of those lipsticks that just rub right off. The Rosehip lipstick stays on for hours without smearing or smudging off, I was really impressed! Oh- And I almost forgot to mention; Can you believe that this gorgeous cruelty free lipstick also moisturizes your lips? It's true!
I also received 4 small sample bottles.
2 of them were Organic Aromatherapy Shampoo and Conditioner.
The shampoo and conditioner are so great! This was actually my first time trying "aromatherapy" hair care products. These 2 were perfect for me, because I have very thin, fine hair, and these are both "volume plus." After using them my hair smelled amazing, and it very revitalized! I will definitely be getting some more!
Then I also received a miniature bottle of the Organic Aromatherapy Lotion.
The lotion was also a treat! I tend to have very rough, dry hands; and this helps so much! After using it my hands felt rejuvenated. I use the lotion everyday, and now my hands are never dried out! Just a little dab of lotion leaves my hands feeling soft all day!
And then I also got a mini bottle of the Premium Aromatheraphy Facial Cleanser.
Another really high quality product! I was so happy to have received this, because for some reason, I have been having some bad breakouts. And honestly, I think it's because of my old facial cleanser. As soon as I got this, I tried it the same night. Already, the next day a saw a reduction in my face. I have a feeling that if I keep using the BWC cleanser then I'll have a clean, fresh face in no time!
Beauty Without Cruelty offers many other cruelty free products, too. They offer hair care products, mascara, skin care, and so much more! Do your part, and shop cruelty free! Help save animals, and get high quality products at the same time! I would recommend Beauty Without Cruelty in a heart beat! I tried 5 different products, and they were all spectacular! I really can't wait to try more!
