Go cruelty free with Beautiful Movements

Go cruelty free with Beautiful Movements

This month I’m partnering up with Cruelty Free International and Beautiful Movements Cosmetics to help educate my readers all about animal testing on cosmetics, and to promote the ‘Go Cruelty Free’ pledge. Did you know that 80% of the world still allows animals to be used in cruel tests for cosmetics? And almost all countries still allow animal testing for cleaning products. Countless rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, mice and rats suffer and die worldwide in routine animal tests for the ingredients that go into deodorant, lipstick and washing up liquid. But it doesn’t have to be this way; animal tests are being replaced with quicker, cheaper and more reliable non-animal methods and companies can use ingredients which are already known to be safe. One way to help the fight against animal testing is to only buy make-up from brands that carry the ‘Leaping Bunny’ logo. It’s the only globally recognised guarantee that a brand has made a genuine commitment to ending animal testing for its products. You can sign up to take the...

Cruelty Free Beauty

Back in the 1980s there were very few well-known cosmetic brands that didn’t test their products or ingredients on animals in some way.

This means that companies are not able to animal test new cosmetic products and ingredients that will be on sale in the EU, however they can still sell products in the EU that have been tested on animals in the past. Companies can also still animal test cosmetics that are sold outside the EU (and the animal testing must be done outside the...

Tony Moly – Petite Bunny Gloss Bar in Juicy Strawberry

Tony Moly – Petite Bunny Gloss Bar in Juicy Strawberry

First of all, big thanks to Fee from fab blog Makeup Savvy who first brought this cute Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar to my attention in her ‘May Favourites’ post. I had never heard of Tony Moly before this, but as soon as I saw this I had to order one! Tony Moly is a Korean skincare and make-up brand, but their products are widely available in the UK via Ebay and other selected websites. Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar works like a regular lipstick whereby you twist the end and the gloss stick twists up ready to apply to your lips. Juicy Strawberry is a lovely translucent pink lip gloss, very glossy and shiny with a great tint. It feels really moisturising and also has a nice juicy strawberry fragrance. The 2 swatch images below have been taken both with and without a camera flash. The image with the flash shows just how glossy this lip product is. The lid has a cute bunny face and...
