9 brands which are shockingly non cruelty free

Hi lovelies,

My cruelty free series are on today, with this quick 10 brands, which are not cruelty free, but I thought they are so it is might be a bit shocking not just for me but also for you. I am not going to talk about MAC or NARS (which used to be cruelty free), neither the most common drugstore brands, like L’Oréal – Bourjois- Rimmel or high-end brands, like Bobbi Brown, Estée Lauder or Dior ect. which are all sell in China.

Here is the list:

  • Yves Rocher: I am might be too naive, but I was on the way of thinking as they do not test on animals because they are natural, parabens free ect. but I just come to realization they do as selling in China. Alternative brand: The Body Shop or Lush.
  • Shiseido:I was might a bit mixing as a Korean Brand, but Japanese Shiseido do test on animals because of their Chinese market.
  • Bioderma: French pharmacies brand’s Chinese website is not so hard to find… so question: what will be their Sensibio H2O alternative?
  • Claudalie: Since I trying to go cruelty free, I am really on a searching side… I wanted to try their Mist as an alternative of MAC, but I have found no no.
  • Glamglow: I was so waiting their new products to launch in Hungary, until my friend came home from China with a Glamglow mask…
  • Khiel’s: it is the American pharmacies company, with Chinese retail … opss
  • L’Occatine: the first sight was sawing their product at duty free stores, then researched and boom… it is the same as Yves Rocher- natural but sell in China
  • Vichy: some as NUXE, La Roche-Posay or Bioderma:

    The only possible exception is if regulatory authorities required it for safety or regulatory purposes.

  • Artdeco: German high-end brand also sells at China, even in Europe they most not test. Brand instead: Zoeva or Misslyn

In generally I can admit, even if they are natural based or pharmacies safe brands they do test on animals if it is required by the law, which is true for the Chinese market, which offers more profit than to be ethnical for most of them. As well as I would be grateful if Chinese Government would change that law.

Xoxo,

Cruetly free Kitty

July hauls

Hi lovelies,

I have not written for a long time due to our future flat, read the story My announcement and keep waiting for my updates soon.

So July passed by a lots of work and only 4 days of from the reality of Budapest. I have already posted about my bikinis so read it Here.


Beside my bikini purchase I have been at The Body Shop to purchase some gifts for my sister and bbf’s- I have forgotten to take the pictures on these, for myself I have finally bought the Body Yoghurt, for a lighter summer version instead of the Body Butter. I have chosen the one with Almond Milk, as Generally hating the Body lotions with so strong perfume (smell). I tend to say love it: cooling, lightweight, so might will purchase the British Rose one as well. I just took two mini mask, but only tried the honey mask after the neem mask, to minimize the dry out of the dry parts of my face. It is not bad, but not the one which I would purchase in the full version, which is really pricy.

All the other are from Mueller, which a drogerie and perfumery in Hungary. It is a really huge store from cheap to high-end cosmetics. I rarely go there as they are a big expensive, and too many people have the access to the more expensive products, which they often open and use instead of the testers…. but it is the place for Real Techniques. They did not have the sponge and the brush, but the brush cleaner yes. Here is it more expensive than MAC ahh… more like a liquid soap type, so might need a bit less, cleans effectively, but come on it is RT only.

And guess what Shiseido was on 50% sale, so that was the deal to must not skip ;). unthought it was really hard to find something due to the above mentioned problem. So I have purchased the Perfect Foundation Brush: love its size and the small kabuki shape so easy to apply all type of foundations. Full Lash Mascara in brown- I always have a brown mascara for natural makeup days. It is not a bad mascara, but differently do not worst the price, on this L’Oréal price tag is was ok to buy. Biobonza was a sample;).

What were your July purchases?

Xoxo,

P.S.: Hungarians are adore the creamy cold fruit soups, which you can do easily: cook the fruits (apricot, plum, peach or mixed) a bit with cinnamon and clove then take it to a turmix with vanillin aroma or sugar, but back to the hot plate and mix it with some milk (I always use almond/soy or rice) and leave it is the fridge. For strawberry use mint only at the first step. Instead of milk you can serve it with ice cream.
