These are a Few of My {Cruelty Free} Favorite Things


These are a few of the cruelty free products I've been using recently and am very happy with. (No one pays be to tell you about them (though they should huh?!) just thought you may like to know).

I have naturally wavy/curly hair that I've spent years straightening and then curing with an iron so I'd look "Hollywood Chic" for auditions and the like. Well, after just having to cut off 5" of heat damaged hair I've decided to go Au Natural more often. Enter Devacurl's "B'Leave In". They really are wonderful! I tried their gel and it didn't work for me (but many of my curly friends swear by it). I am in love with the b'leave leave-in gelee!

I just had a BIG birthday! My skin is known to show it's Irish heritage with rosy cheeks, sunspots, and dryness. I went to a skin care woman at Sephora who told me about Kate Somerville's "Age Arrest". My requirements were that the creme be cruelty free, good for you, and gentle. I can honestly say that this creme is pricy (way more than I'd ever spend but (big birthday) I was promised that it'll last me at least 6 months using it 2x a day). I use it AM+PM and in two weeks there is a difference. I don't have to wear makeup, my sunspots are fading, my fine lines are not as noticeable and my skin feels really happy.  

Finally. CO Bigelow's "My Favorite Night Balm" This stuff is magic. I spend the entire winter with bleeding, peeling lips. Finally, SantaMom put this little magic tube in my stocking. I wake in the am with soft, non-peeling, pain free lips! MUAH!
