Cruelty free is the way to be!

AVON cosmetics has recently become a sure favorite of mine due to:
  • Incredibly low prices, which are cut down by half a lot of the time due to their sales which are usually back to back
  • Low price on shipping and constant coupon codes for FREE shipping
  • Unbelievable quality and selection of products
  • Avon being one of the OLDEST cosmetic companies around founded in NY in 1886!
  • My mom being a representative!
  • The character Peg Boggs in the movie "Edward Sissorhands" was an AVON Lady!
but most of all,

AVON reaches far beyond and takes advantage of its corporate success by being highly involved in philanthropic causes! The AVON Foundation has raised millions of dollars to help women and their families and is now focusing on two key causes: breast cancer and domestic violence.

Along with helping women across the globe, AVON also has a heart towards those non-humans with whom we share this planet with...

AVON has been one of the first companies to refuse any kind of testing on our furry friends along with Revlon.

That's right...AVON has been cruelty free from the start and they have been rewarded numerous times on their constant effort to spread the word against animal cruelty and testing.

Not all companies are as caring. There are plenty out there that still test their products, or their ingredients, which is just as bad, on animals to this day.

Here is a list of companies that continue to test on animals or test certain ingredients on animals:
  • Calvin Klein Cosmetics (A division of Unilever)
  • Carter Wallace (Nair / Pearl Drops / Arrid)
  • Clairol, Inc. (Bristol-Meyers Squibb)
  • Cover Girl (Proctor & Gamble) - Currently on a moratorium on animal testing until further testing
  • Elizabeth Arden (A division of Unilever)
  • L'Oreal does not test their products on animals, but they DO test their ingredients on animals.
  • Max Factor (Proctor & Gamble)
  • Olay Co. (Proctor & Gamble)
  • Sally Hansen
  • Vidal Sassoon

  1. When I stumbled onto your blog and saw the cruelty free bunny, I had to follow! :D

    cruelty free is the way to go. I just recently "converted" into the caring consumer :P

  2. Thanks for the list and the follow love. How great that you are letting us know about it! :)

  3. Hi,

    Just a quick question. Is your Revlon colorstay foundation in the oily/combination skin formula? Or the dry skin formula? I haven't heard any reviews on the dry skin formula, so I was wondering if your review was on the dry or oily skin formulation.


  4. I'm totally into Avon, too. What a great quality for such low prices!


Thank you for your comments. They are greatly appreciated!
