I have an unreasonable addiction to health and beauty aids. The linen closet in my house is packed with them, so much so that we refer to the closet as “CVS,” as in “Honey, do we have any hand sanitizer?” “I think so. Check in CVS, the third shelf.”
My other love, which is much more reasonable, is a love of animals. I’ve always had pets, I volunteer my time at shelters and sanctuaries, and I donate money to animal protection groups. My dream is to one day own an animal sanctuary… admittedly that day is probably far away.
So ever since I was a preteen ogling the products at The Body Shop in the mall then buying Wet ‘n Wild with my meager allowance, I have been aware of how animals are harmed in the testing of beauty products. At one point in my life, I could ignore the sad fact that my cosmetics were killing animals. Now, however, I cannot. I’ve made the decision to only buy cruelty-free health and beauty aids.
This blog will list all the amazing cruelty-free (and often eco-friendly) products I’ve bought, tried, and loved (or not loved). I will also continue trying new products and sharing the results. I’m always looking for new things to try, so please send me the names of any cruelty-free products you love or would like me to try.
Lastly, please enjoy this picture of me and my dogs.
