Whaat, Tigi tests on animals? This was a real wake up call for me, see I got into cruelty free cosmetics since I first got interested in make up and stuff, like 15 years ago (I am 27 now). Back then I got all the lists etc for brands not using animal testing. Years went by and as I followed the situation I noticed very rare brands test on animals anymore, at least the whole end product, since the awareness rose so quickly. I have used pretty steadily certain labels, so I haven`t been even thinking about this anymore while shopping, and I got to say: SHAME ON ME!!!
Now that I `ve changed the products I use, I am not sure at all they are not tested on animals. Either way, even the brands who promise to to be cruelty free, can`t swear that some of the ingredients are which they buy from elsewhere.
But my routine is now, cruelty or not:
Morning: Elizabeth Arden 3 in 1 wash (cleaner, exfoliator, primer), EA Intervene Radiance Boosting Moisture Cream, occasionally Timefighting Radiance Serum or L`Oreal Dermagenesis Pore Minimazing Serum, Elizabeth Arden Good Morning Eye Treatment
Evening: Biotherm Aquasource cleansing milk, if needed 3 in 1 wash in addition, one of the serums mentioned above, EA Intervene Stress Recovery Night Cream and Good Morning Eye Treatment.
