If youโ€™re new to vegan beauty or makeup, I highly recommend giving a seasonal subscription service, like @vegancuts Makeup Box a try! ๐Ÿ’„๐ŸŒปโœจ
.
Every 3 months, youโ€™ll receive a box full of vegan makeup delivered right to your doorstep ๐Ÿ“ฆ
.
Reasons to subscribe to #VegancutsMakeupBox:
.
๐ŸŒผ you get to experiment and try new vegan products and brands!
๐ŸŒผ itโ€™s cheaper than buying each product on their own โ€” you get full-size products (not dinky samples), usually over $100+ in value but you only pay $37-$55. The price depends on where itโ€™s being shipped to (US, Canada, or International) and the length of the subscription.
๐ŸŒผ in addition to all of the products being cruelty-free and vegan, theyโ€™re also natural and non-toxic.
๐ŸŒผ you get to customize the box and pick colors that suit you best!
๐ŸŒผ itโ€™s a seasonal subscription so youโ€™ll be sent products that go with the change in season and weather.
๐ŸŒผ do good while looking good โ€” partial proceeds from each Vegancuts Spring Makeup Box goes towards Wildlife Victoria rescue in Australia to help animals affected by the horrific bush fires.

Please read till the end ๐ŸŒฟ I recently bought these plant-based scour pads from @fullcircle, they're made from walnut shells and non-toxic materials ๐Ÿงฝ They work almost as good as plastic/synthetic scour pads and does the job of gently removing most dirt while not scratching my pans โญ๏ธ They were also made in Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ and Full Circle is certified B Corporation with a commitment to reduce their environmental impact, claiming their products use less energy and emit fewer greenhouse gases in production. ๐ŸŒฑ This all sounded great, which was why I bought them as I wanted a plastic-free and compostable alternative -- BUT, upon further research.. their website states their walnut shell scour pads are made of: Walnut shells AND recycled plastic! ๐Ÿ˜” Making them actually NOT compostable.
.
Ahh yes, I should have done more research before buying and also, why wasn't recycled plastic listed on their packaging!?
.
On the surface, these may be a better option than other synthetic scour pads or sponges on the market as it's made from *recycled* plastic but I totally fell for the greenwashing here. Yes -- I, too make mistakes! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I'm posting this mishap of mine to show you that living sustainably is a journey, and lessons will be learned along the way. This has taught me to do more research than just reading the product's packaging or an online retailer's product description before buying... And now that I know better, I can do better! ๐ŸŒฟ

๐ŸŒป What eco-friendly or plastic-free sponges do u recommend?

    Very concerned that recent purchases are made in china. Questioned Barry M and they were very defensive, saying it was only the packaging made in china (since when does a small product display where the packaging is made?). Not convinced the company remains kosher so disposed of acquisitions (recycling and bin), there are other companies out there who don’t sacrifice ethics for profit. Just trading with china gives out the message that you don’t mind the fact that they skin animals alive/hack them to pieces whilst still alive/imprison thousands of people denying them basic rights to trial. They might not mind but I do so Barry M consigned to the likes of the L’Oreal pit.

    Thanks so much for this list. I found it after buying the That’s How I Roll waterproof mascara thinking all BarryM products were vegan then being informed in a FB vegan group that this was not the case. Vegan for 3 days = rookie error! Anyway, thanks again, have shared with friends and will be following your blog from now on! Xx

    Hi Vicky, thanks for these product details. I have just become vegan and am slowly up dating my make up and household products with cruelty free and vegan products. So anything that helps is great. I just wondered if you had noticed that some Barry M cosmetics are made in China? I only just discovered this myself . As China by law test on animals would this mean that these products are not cruelty free? I just wanted to let you and others know to check where products are made.

    • Vicky Ly

      Hey Emma! China’s animal testing laws can be a little confusing but cosmetics that are MADE in China are NOT required by law to be tested on animals. It’s only an issue if cosmetics are SOLD in China.

      So that means, Barry M can make their products in China but just as long as none of their products are being sold within China, then they don’t need to test on animals.

      Hope that clears things up for you! =) Please let me know if you have any other questions, Emma!

โ€œMake ethical choices in what we buy, do, and watch. In a consumer-driven society our individual choices, used collectively for the good of animals and nature, can change the world faster than laws.โ€โ€• Marc Bekoff
