Recently I had searched and looked into many of my beauty products and discovered that quite a few tested on animals which killed me. I told my husband that from now on I wanted to be more conscious of the products I was buying and if they tested on animals. I have compiled a few of the products that I love and they don’t test on animals which is great.
Best Witch Hazel Astringent
I love Dickinson’s, Witch Hazel Deep Cleaning Astringent. It gets all of my makeup off, it is cleans my pores beautifully.
I have an oily complexion and this stuff helps keep my oil production at bay and leaves my face with a cool refreshing feeling. They are environmentally friendly and they never test on animals!
I have sensitive skin in general so finding eye makeup that doesn’t make my eyes itchy or irritated has been a challenge. I also wear contact lenses so that has also made me mindful of what I am putting on and around my eyes. My pick for eyeshadow is Pacifica eyeshadows. I love the colors that they offer and they have not caused me any eye irritation or issues. Pacifica is vegan and cruelty-free and they offer a great recycling program for their products. You can request return labels from the website and they will send you a pre-paid label and take your empty tubes and recycle them for you!
Best Mascara and Lip Balm
It should be no surprise that for mascara I love Pacifica Stellar Gaze. It gives me great volume and I love how long my eyelashes look with it on. Being fair skinned and freckle-faced selecting lip colors, in general, is often trial and error. I love Burt’s Bees tinted lip balm because it gives me the benefits of a balm with the hint of color.
Best Powder Foundation
The last product and the one that is the newest in my collection is Burt’s Bees powder foundation. I have sensitive skin and an oily face at times. This powder does a great job mattifying my face and has not caused me any irritation.
I hope that if and when you try these products you have as much success as I have. I plan on continuing to be more conscious of my choices and selecting products for myself and my family that represent the values that I hold dear.
