    Thanks for your sweet words on my last post, they brightened my day!
    Honey, I love you even more now. I’m a strict vegeterian, too, and love shopping at Yves Rocher (French beauty brand) because everything is plant-tested and -based. Most drugstore brands don’t really give much away of their ingredients or methods which is a shame…

    Hope you have a fantastic day,

    Great post on an important issue! We don´t have a Lush over where I live, but if I run into one of their stores, I need to try that popcorn lipbalm! I love how their products look, to me it´s a bit of a candyshop :-)
    And I didn’t know that the Bodyshop is now owned by L’Oreal. Maybe it wants to make L’Oreal think that beautyproducts don’t need to be tested on animals…

    This is a fantastic round-up, thank you so much for sharing! Now it’ll be a lot easier when I go to the store to know what brands to support.

    I had no idea about the ethics of a lot of these brands. I knew about Lush. They came into our work once as they made an oil barrel into a worm farm which I thought was adorable! I had no idea L’Oreal bought the Body Shop, that is so weird as the Body Shop pride themselves on the ethics of their products.

    Thanks for doing this post, it was very enlightening. I also have no idea what primer does.

    Jess, amazing post! I was just working on a vegan/ethics cosmetics post and vegan/ethics hair post haha, maybe I’ll forgo the first one or it looks like I’m copying you (you just have the best blog ideas… or great minds think alike?). I’m so happy there’s been an increase in cruelty-free stuff. I’ve stopped using body shop due to l’oreal and I also avoid Barry M as they are or used to be subsidised by Topshop. Also a couple of the brands you mentioned use animal products but I imagine you’re aware of that already and that’s only a concern to the vegan kids? I agree it’s SO annoying how companies aren’t prepared to just lay it out on the table, so frustrating when you’re trying to navigate the market. xxx

      Great minds do think alike! Laila, I think you should definitely still write those posts. I’d love to read them, and the more people talking about this stuff the better, right? I definitely would prefer to use brands that don’t use animal products at all. It’s tricky though because with so many things to be aware of you end up with no brands that you’re okay buying from. Maybe the answer is to shop exclusively in Lush, and I’m fine with that!

    I used to like The Bodyshop products a lot but I was pretty disappointed when they became part of the L’Oreal business :-/

    Great post, Jess! It’s startling how many companies still test cosmetics on animals. I’m a big fan of Soap & Glory and The Body Shop. I tend to look for beauty products for super sensitive skin! xx

    This is a great post! I didn’t know that Urban Decay is cruelty free, that makes me love them even more. I have very picky skin so it’s hard for me to eliminate things that actually don’t break me out, but it’s definitely something I look for.

    I’m so glad I found your blog! If you’d like to follow each other, I’d be happy to keep in touch! Just let me know on my blog :)

    Great post!! It’s a lovely idea to share cruelty free cosmetics tips, lots of brands I don’t know in there :D I am also a big big Lush fan (it’s top quality, they have a few killer products)
