I’m going to mention them at least, since I went through the trouble of finding the images online and posting them here, but I think this might be my last post on any product that is not 100% cruelty-free.
Origins makes some amazing eye cream. I’m not sure if it’ll undo the damage that has already been done through years of smiling and laughing, and I’m not even sure I want it to. However, I got the sample and tried it. It was nice. Went on smooth.
Why are you selling in China, Origins? Doesn’t that, alone, basically go against your entire stance on animal testing? Food for thought. I’ll never buy your stuff. Sales are clearly more important than the ethics you claim to stand for.
Therefore, we won’t be buying this one, not ever. But thanks for sending the sample, Sephora. I think I like the idea of taking money out of Lauder’s pockets.
I was reminded while using it that although there ARE other brands out there that are not 100% cruelty-free and might be fine or great, nothing feels or smells nearly as good as my smug self-satisfaction when I wash my face and apply my makeup every morning using an arsenal of products that I am certain never touched an animal’s skin.
