💕Going 100% Cruelty-Free💕

PETA-Cruelty-FreeI have been a passionate Vegan for over two years now, and when I initially began “transitioning” my main focus was what I was intaking and consuming diet wise. The thought of animal testing in the make-up products I used hadn’t crossed my mind seeing as images of poor baby chicks getting blended to death, and pigs being scalded alive filled my head. I’m not sure why it took so long for me to come to the realization that the animal testing defenseless bunnies, guinea pigs and mice fall victim to is just as important to me as what the farm animals are going through. I can only say that this event, this decision in my life has changed the way I see the beauty industry forever.

Due to this change, I decided to purge my existing make-up and to go 100% Cruelty-Free!! 💯*Signal round of applause*💯 🙂 It was neither an easy process nor a quick one as I had quite a bit to go through but I couldn’t be happier! Anytime I reach for a product in my collection I have the satisfaction and gratitude in knowing no animal had to die in order for me to use it. I used the help of a very resourceful website called Crueltyfreekitty.com for the bulk of my items and I highly recommend this site if you are looking for cruelty free information. For my nail polish collection I used an equally amazing site entitled Ethicalelephant.com, and finally for my Korean make-up I used Koreanbeautylicious.blogspot.com. If not for these sites I’m sure my time would have been a lot longer!!

🐰I can’t begin to express the delight I feel in having done this, and I hope to inspire some of you to rethink the products you may love, the methods under which they are produced and how this small change can save so many lives. 🐰

🌺I want to say a huge thank you to all of the brands who are cruelty-free and produce amazing product. As you can see it was really right down the middle as far as what I kept and what needed to go. My list of “keeps” also included a lot of drugstore brands which can make going cruelty-free extremely feasible for younger women/men, teens, students, moms on a budget or anyone really. I truly believe that each one of us can make a difference one small ripple at a time.  🌺
