A little bit about me…I’ve always been a beauty enthusiast. I’ve been obsessed with all things makeup, hair, skincare since I can remember (probably since the age of 5). I truly can’t believe I didn’t find myself in the skincare or beauty industry as this passion of mine has always been a constant.
Although I adore the industry, beauty can be quite overwhelming. There are so many products and reviews on the internet and although helpful, in the end, my brain felt like it was swimming with confusion. To help sort through the never-ending brands, I decided to only purchase cruelty-free in 2017. I am not Vegan nor Vegetarian, however, I am an animal lover (so how am I not a Vegetarian??). I won’t lie, I was nervous when I made the choice. What if I had to throw out most of my makeup and skincare? Ultimately, I couldn’t continue to turn my cheek to the reality of the testing process. AND, most of my makeup was fine to keep! Unfortunately, most of my skincare had to go. Fortunately, I stick to moderately priced skincare (most of the time).
