Hey Girls!!!! I have missed this so much, just sitting down at my computer and writing posts! I have had a lot of things going on in my life lately, but you have no idea how happy I am to be back! I've linked a new twitter in the sidebar, also I have a new YouTube channel... The channel name is alextresbellebeauty you would make my month if you subscribed! I plan on doing at least a post a week! I hope I still have your support, all of you have been so nice to me the past year!

Thank you for reading

Beauty Inside and Out: Animal Cruelty Free Compainies.

Hi girls!!! It has been too long! I apologize for not being around as much as I would like! I have been too busy lately!

I have always loved animals, there has never been a time in my life when I haven't had at least two cats in my house. As you also know, I love makeup and when I found out some of the horrible things they put in cosmetics, I was absolutely disgusted.

I'm not going to say exactly what is in the products, in depth, If you would like to know go to the Peta animal ingredients list. It is really shocking, what you are putting on your face! I didn't go into detail, just because I didn't want to upset or gross anyone out, but I really do recommend looking at the list, for both health and humanity reasons.

What I am going to share with you, is a list of cruelty free beauty and cosmetic companies, and a few that unfortunately contribute to the animal testing and bi-product use.

Cruelty Free Companies
  • Arbonne.
  • MAC.
  • Almay.
  • Aveda.
  • Burt's Bee's.
  • Bath and Bodyworks.
  • The Body Shop.
  • C.O. Bigelow (at Bath & Bodyworks).
  • E.L.F. cosmetics.
  • Hard Candy.
  • Hello Kitty Cosmetics.
  • LUSH.
  • NYX.
  • OPI.
  • Physcians Formula.
  • Revlon.
  • Smashbox Cosmetics.
  • Stila Cosmetics.
  • Tarte Cosmetics.

  • Wet n Wild.
  • Victoria Secret Beauty.
Companies That are Cruel to Animals :(

  • Estee Lauder.
  • Kiehls.

  • Maybelline.
  • Mary Kay.
  • Neutrogena.
  • Olay.
  • Shiseido Cosmetics.
There were a few companies that weren't on either of the lists, such as Benefit Cosmetics or the Sephora brand cosmetics. I'm going to have to look into those more. Also I did not include ever company on both lists, only the more popular ones, check out the link to see both of the full lists.

I'm also going to make a tab devoted to animal cruelty free beauty!
