TOP BEAUTY BRANDS THAT TEST ON ANIMALS

BEAUTY BRANDS THAT STILL TEST ON ANIMALS 2018

TOP BEAUTY BRANDS THAT TEST ON ANIMALS


I've done the research to give you a list of the top beauty brands that still engage in animal testing and therefore are not considered organic or cruelty free products as of October 2018.


L'Oreal

L'Oreal claims that they no longer test on animals however they fund, market and sell their product line in China and other foreign countries where animal testing on beauty products is mandated by law.

L'Oreal owns more than 100 different beauty brands worldwide and you can see a list of all of their companies by doing a simple Google search.

Estee Lauder

Estee Lauder claims that they are committed to becoming a "cruelty-free" company but they market and sell their product line in China and other countries where animal; testing is mandated by law.

MAC

MAC began as a cruelty free company---but they were bought out by Estee Lauder who sell their products in China--where animal testing is required---and so they're no longer a cruelty free company.

LANCOME

Lancome is owned by L'Oreal and has the same policy---they test on animals as required by law--making them a company that is not cruelty-free.

MAKEUP FOREVER

Makeup Forever is currently owned by LVMH ( Louis Vuitton)  who test on animals because they sell and market their product line in China and other foreign countries who require animal testing.

MAYBELLINE 

Maybelline is owned by L'Oreal---so their products for sale in other countries require animal testing.


REVLON

Revlon is a privately owned beauty company--but they sell their product line in China and other countries which require animal testing and therefore are not cruelty free.

COVERGIRL

CoverGirl is owned by COTY and they sell their product line in China and other countries that require animal testing---therefore they are not a cruelty free company.

CLINIQUE

CLINIQUE is owned by Estee Lauder----animal testing is required in China and other countries.

CHANEL

Chanel's products aren't cruelty free as their products are sold in mainland China---who requires animal testing.

COTY AIRSPUN POWDER: TRY SOMETHING BETTER

COTY AIRSPUN POWDER: WHY YOU CAN DO BETTER

TRY AN ORGANIC FACE POWDER INSTEAD


I was very surprised to find out that the number one selling face powder on Amazon is still Coty's Air Spun Face Powder.  

We used this powder in the late 70's and 80's over liquid foundation in an attempt to set our makeup for the day and to control our oily skin shine--but we had to reapply numerous times throughout the day. 

Ultimately we were left with horrible orange tones and streaky faces--- caused by the chemical ingredients in this powder.  Our natural skin oils --mixed with the ingredients in this product---gave us more oily skin shine as it clogged our pores and upset our skin's natural oil production.

Applying more powder throughout the day seemed to be the only quick fix.

Makeup powders that are made with only pure organic ingredients will give you lasting full coverage in a beautiful matte finish without clogging your pores and upsetting your skin's natural moisture balance.  

Organic makeup powders control oily skin shine for hours and hours and reapplication isn't really necessary.  You can apply your powder makeup in the morning and be done with it. 

Organic face powder ingredients soothe and heal your skin and reduce redness and swelling. 

Makeup powders without chemicals and toxins will protect and heal your skin and control oil production naturally without drying your face out.  

Coty Air Spun powder is not cruelty free and their products are tested on animals in China where animal testing is actually required for all imported cosmetic products.

COTY owns a number of cosmetic brands including MAX FACTOR and COVER GIRL---hair brands like CLAIROL and fine fragrance brands like GUCCI, DOLCE & GABANA and HUGO BOSS.

COTY'S AIR SPUN face powder ingredients include: Talc, Calcium Silicate, Isopropyl Palmitate, Cetyl Acetate, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Methyparaben, Acetylated Lanolin, Oleyl Acetate, Propylparaben---

Wait--- parabens and lanolin?  No thank you!

Try an organic face powder---see and feel the difference!

Your skin will thank you---

ROMANTIC WEDDING IDEAS-FALL-WINTER 2018

ROMANTIC WEDDING IDEAS 2018

AMAZING WEDDING FLORAL & BRIDAL IMAGES


Fall and Winter 2018 Weddings will be here before you know it so we've gathered up some romantic and inspiring images to help you plan your beautiful cool weather wedding this year.

I've always wanted to have an evening Christmas wedding so I'm always checking out the fall and winter styles when it comes to the bridal gowns, the flowers, the veils, etc...

In my opinion, a holiday evening winter wedding just seems so romantic & sophisticated and I love the richness of colors and textures that are most commonly used to decorate for a winter wedding---

For instance, the bride can carry a hundred red roses down the aisle and look absolutely perfect doing so ---during an evening winter time wedding---especially one  that's during or very close to Christmas.

MASTERING MINIMALISM

MASTERING MINIMALISM

30 Day Path To Minimalism & Peace

#project333 #minimalism


I haven't really challenged myself lately and after watching a really good Netflix documentary on "Minimalism" ---I think I'm finally going to get to the mass "decluttering and organizing" project that my home definitely needs.  

I don't know about you but I always feel better when my surroundings are clutter free and well organized----the only problem with that-------I just don't want to do it anymore...

As I've grown older, there is nothing I dislike more than cleaning and organizing....but if it will calm my mind and spirit and allow me to live a more authentic and peaceful life---then I'm all in...

It's hard to believe how much "stuff" we've collected over the past years but unfortunately we don't have a lot of actual "storing space"---- so unless we take action now---our "stuff" will soon be forcing us out of the small "living space"  that we have still have left.

I'm going to begin in the dining room today---and THEN the wardrobe work of my 30 day challenge!

So I typed that last sentence 45 minutes ago and I'm still sitting here staring at my computer----
(This is going to be harder than I thought)

I found a good 30 Day Challenge Guideline for the "Minimalist Movement" and I've included the link below----so I hope you will join me in this challenge.

ORGANIC MAKEUP MAKES YOU PRETTY: ZINC OXIDE

ORGANIC MAKEUP INGREDIENTS


WHY TRULY ORGANIC INGREDIENTS KEEP YOU PRETTY...


One of the base ingredients in most Organic Powder Makeup is Zinc Oxide.




Zinc Oxide is one of the safest ingredients for the skin (a natural sunscreen) and protects the skin against harmful ultraviolet sun rays by filtering them out before they can penetrate the skin. It's also very effective in wound healing and can soothe the pain and tenderness of sunburns and chapped skin and helps to repair damaged skin cells.

Zinc is a natural metallic element- like iron or magnesium- and is necessary for skin and body health as it contributes to the immune system and is necessary for collagen formation--- protein synthesis ---and helps the skin to heal.  

It's also powerful astringent and is being used in the natural treatment of acne and breakouts ----simply because---- it effectively and consistently reduces skin irritation and inflammation and it helps to control excess oils ---which maintain the skin's natural moisture balance.

Zinc is heated up to form its compound "zinc oxide" ---which is an oxidized form of Zinc that can be mixed with other creams and compounds to create makeup and skincare products.



skin-benefits-zinc-oxide


Zinc and Zinc Oxide have been used in medicinal applications for centuries and as a topical, it's very effective in treating skin rashes and aid in new tissue growth. Zinc oxide protects the skin from harmful bacteria and has been shown to treat burns, ulcers, abrasions and other irritations of the skin.

Current research also indicates that zinc oxide can be used in the treatment and prevention of acne and other skin disorders. 

Zinc oxide is a natural astringent and anti-inflammatory.  It can minimize skin pores and prevent future breakouts by balancing and regulating facial oil production. Zinc oxide also provides the broad-spectrum sunscreen used in hundreds of sunscreen and makeup/skincare products.  

When we use it as a base of our makeup powders---It's a fine---soft and lightweight powder that provides a sunscreen, controls facial oil, reduces inflammation and puffiness ---and helps to determine the coverage level of most all makeup foundation formulas and skincare products.

HOW TO MANAGE OILY SKIN

HOW TO MANAGE SUPER OILY SKIN

OILY SKINCARE & MAKEUP TIPS


Your skin works constantly to produce natural oils that lock in moisture and block out irritants. 

Sometimes these natural oils will fight back by "overproducing" sebum--- in retaliation to the use of drying soaps and other skincare products that may strip or dehydrate the skin. 

Your skin will begin to produce too much of a good thing ---in an effort to protect it's texture and health----but sadly most of us are just left with an "oil slick complexion" that never responds well to any kind of makeup application.
