My views on animal testing & animal products

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the cruelty involved with testing on animals and the conflicting decisions as consumers we have to make.

In an ideal world, beauty brands would not test on animals. I’m pretty sure most, if not all, of you would agree with that statement. There are a lot of drugstore brands that are on PETA’s list of brands which do test on animals which is a real disappointment to people who, like me, are on a budget. It’s simply not an option to throw out all of my makeup and replace it with brands which are cruelty free. However, in order to support these companies which don’t test on animals I think I will start to buy products from them and I urge you to at least check out their stuff. I will write below which brands do and don’t test on animals. If I could, I would go completely cruelty free right now and hope to do so eventually.

As for wearing real fur and leather, I think this is totally avoidable and will definitely not be purchasing any myself. I watched a video on Twitter shared by PETA which was about real fur and leather and it was extremely difficult to watch. Fake fur and leather are affordable, feel great and avoid cruelty!
