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?

Please read till the end...

Some grocery stores have temporarily banned the use of reusable bags fear of the potential risk of further spreading the virus. Instead, stores will be handing out plastic bags to customers, free of charge.
.
โœง Totally understandable given our current situation, so this is a great time to make sure all of our reusable bags are washed and if needed, repaired ๐ŸŒฟ
.
โœง แด‡แด„แด-แด›ษชแด˜: For bigger and bulkier items, I always like to use boxes (the grocery stores always have these on hand and they're totally free!) and when I forget to bring my reusable bags, I try to limit the number of items I buy to however many I can carry in my hands and out the store.
.
โœง Buying produce (like leafy greens ๐Ÿฅฌ) without a bag is another story... Iโ€™d love to know, do you have any tips or tricks for reducing our plastic consumption while buying produce during these times?

Is CoverGirl Cruelty-Free?

CoverGirl is cruelty-free; none of their products or ingredients are tested on animals, anywhere in the world. On November 4, 2018, CoverGirl officially became certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny and Cruelty-Free International. However, it should be noted that CoverGirl is owned by Coty, a parent corporation that is still testing on animals in 2019 when required by law.

CoverGirl is owned by Coty, a parent company that tests on animals, and Coty Inc. also owns several other makeup and fragrance brands that are sold in Mainland China and therefore those brands are required to be tested on animals as per China’s animal testing laws.

Some cruelty-free shoppers may wish to boycott brands that are owned by a parent company that tests on animals as they feel their money is indirectly supporting and funding animal tests done by the parent company. Learn more about some of the reasons consumers choose to support or boycott such brands in this article here.ย 

It’s great to see and hear CoverGirl has taken the right steps to become Leaping Bunny certified, but like most of you, we wanted to know whether CoverGirl is vegan or not?

Is CoverGirl Vegan?

Not all of Covergirl cosmetics is vegan as some contain beeswax, lanolin, collagen, and/or other animal-derived ingredients but Covergirl does offer some vegan makeup products in 2020.

Please reference below for a list of Covergirl vegan products.

CoverGirl Vegan Product List (2020)

In 2019, CoverGirl has started to label some of their cosmetics and products as “vegan” or “vegan formula” to indicate a handful of products that do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products. This is another major step in the right direction for CoverGirl as they start to formulate vegan affordable makeup products to the masses! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

The following CoverGirl cosmetics are considered suitable for vegans and labeled as so on CoverGirl’s website:

This vegan product list is updated as frequently as possible, please be aware that formulations may have changed since the publication of this post. If you have new information to suggest one of the above products isn’t vegan, please email me at info@ethicalelephant.com to let me know.

When I emailed CoverGirl in 2018 to inquire about their use of animal-derived ingredients in their makeup products and their vegan status, this is what they originally had to say:

“To be Cruelty-Free that means that we do not test our products on animals. However, we are not vegan. At Coty, we do not allow third parties to test on animals on our behalf. Our products do not contain or use in their manufacture any animal derived ingredients with the exception of lanolin, beeswax, sodium Chondroitin sulfate and atelocollagen. Lanolin is a natural by-product of processing sheepโ€™s wool after it has been shorn, beeswax a natural by-product of honeybees discarded in the hive, neither causing any harm to the animals, and the latter two ingredients are of marine origin. Our products do not contain any bovine, ovine or caprine tissues, nor fluids from the encephalon, the spinal cord or the eyes, or any other ingredient or material presenting risks of transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs).

While there is currently no legal definition of a vegan or vegetarian cosmetic product, and we do not specialize in products without animal-derived ingredients, we respect your desire for this type of information.”

    This is amazing news! Since we don’t know what products are actually vegan yet, could you do a blog post listing the products that are vegan?

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
