👣 Every time I think of foot cream, I think of the scene from Mean Girls when Cady gives Regina George foot cream as a face moisturizer and Aaron is like, "Hey your face smells like peppermint" 😁
"𝘐𝘵'𝘴 𝘣𝘦𝘦𝘯 𝘵𝘸𝘰 𝘸𝘦𝘦𝘬𝘴, 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘢𝘭𝘭 𝘸𝘦'𝘷𝘦 𝘥𝘰𝘯𝘦 𝘪𝘴 𝘮𝘢𝘬𝘦 𝘩𝘦𝘳 𝘧𝘢𝘤𝘦 𝘴𝘮𝘦𝘭𝘭 𝘭𝘪𝘬𝘦 𝘢 𝘧𝘰𝘰𝘵." 🦶🏻😂

Vegan Collagen Booster Gummies for Adults! 💕 
These yummy sugar-free vegan gummies taste exactly like watermelon jolly ranchers! 🍉 If you're looking for a convenient, fun, and delicious vegan collagen supplement, I highly recommend @herbalandgummies Vegan Collagen Gummies!
🍉 What is Collagen?
Collagen is an essential protein in our body and has many important functions, including providing our skin with structure and strengthening our bone. However, as we age, our body produces less collagen resulting in wrinkles and dry skin.
🍉 The Benefits of Collagen Supplements
Collagen supplements aim to help support our body’s natural collagen production and thereby slowing the aging of our skin. As a result, it may help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and dryness of our skin.
🍉 Is Collagen Vegan?
Traditional collagen supplements are not vegan as collagen is primarily sourced from bovine and marine sources. Herbaland’s vegan collagen boosters contain plant-based ingredients to promote the body’s natural collagen production.
🍉 Ingredients of Herbaland Vegan Collagen Booster:
◦ Vitamin A (Vitamin A Palmitate) 900 mcg RAE (3000 IU)
◦ Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) 90 mg
◦ L-Lysine 150mg
◦ Amla Fruit Powder 10mg
The raw materials are sourced from local farms in Canada 🇨🇦 and are organic, pesticide-free, non-GMO and natural.

Estee Lauder Acquires Too Faced

I know what you’re all thinking… WHY!? and no, please not Too Faced!! Ughs. Yet another beloved cruelty-free brand sold for a reportedly $1.45 billion to not-so-cruelty-free brand, Estee Lauder!

Estee Lauder has a bad track record of acquiring cruelty-free brands and then changing their animal testing policy to say they don’t test on animals “unless required by law”. Case in point with Smashbox and Aveda (this post here explains it all).

Although Too Faced says they’ll remain cruelty-free and will not sell in China, lots of cruelty-free shoppers refuse to buy anymore products from the brand as they feel their money is indirectly funding and supporting more animal tests done by the parent company, Estee Lauder.

China to Approve Non-animal Testing Methods

Careful what you read out there, China hasn’t lifted their animal testing requirements just yet and as of right now, they still do require all imported cosmetics to be tested on animals before they’re allowed to sell in their country.

But we’re all about celebrating every victory here, big or small, so we’re delighted to hear that China is taking the right steps by accepting, for the first time ever, data from a non-animal test method!!

“The government’s acceptance of the 3T3 Phototoxicity assay means that cosmetic companies selling in China will be able to submit data on cosmetics for this particular test, involving exposure to light, without having to harm animals”

Way to go China! Keep it up and we’ll be able to make animal testing for cosmetics a thing in the past!

Philosophy is Not Cruelty-Free

The lovely Courtney from cruelty-free blog, Phyrra.net posted a rather disappointing response from a well-known skincare brand, Philosophy. When asked multiple times if the brand sells in countries that may require animal testing (ie. China), they couldn’t give a straight answer and instead, they linked to their parent company, Coty Inc’s corporate policy.

When a subsidiary brand that claims to be “cruelty-free” links to their non-cruelty-free parent company’s animal testing policy, that usually never ends well for the brand.

Coty Inc is not cruelty-free and in their policy, it’s implied that they sell in China where animal testing is required by law. Now it appears that Philosophy is following the same policy as Coty Inc.

Kat Von D to Release New Vegan Palette

Vegan palettes are sometimes hard to come by as there always seems to be one or two shades that are not vegan. Thankfully, Kat Von D Beauty is delivering on their promise of producing more vegan makeup with their latest Alchemist Palette!

“Tucked inside the beautiful packaging are four beautiful iridescent pigments: [Green] Emerald, [Ultra-Violet] Amethyst, [Blue] Sapphire, and [Pink] Opal. Each shade is designed to be used alone as a highlighter or layered on top of your favorite lipsticks and eye shadows to transform their colors.”

The Alchemist Palette will be available in stores at Sephora on Dec 24, 2016.

    Isn’t Kat von D’s parent company testing on animals? I just can’t decide what to do. I love that she is vegan and that’s important to her that animals don’t suffer and that she has a lot of vegan options within her makeup line. But I just don’t know.. If you don’t mind I’d love to hear your opinion on this.
    Thanks! 😉
