#crueltyfree v #noncrueltyfree - A change in my Blog for 2017!
It's been a very long time since I blogged and I've been posting almost daily makeup product's over on my Instagram. which are tagged and unsponsored product's I've bought with my own money. I decided to blog and tweet etc on my own name account's so I'll update the link's on my social media to the new account's - well their not new but new to linking to my blog!
Before I receive comment's on why have I stopped using or linking #noncrueltyfree product's let's explain.
1. Major brand's like L'Oreal own drugstore brand's and it's difficult to research who is the Parent Company without spending hour's trawling google and even then this information isn't up-to-date.
2. Some of the crueltyfree brand's are now owned by the likes of L'Oreal, Revlon and Estee Lauder eg Too Faced which was recently acquired by Estee Lauder!
3. I've decided if I like a product I'm going to buy it because I don't have time or the energy to research parent companies of that brand etc. I will of course make it known it's not #crueltyfree if I write a post about a product and where possible name the Parent Company who acquired the former #crueltyfree brand eg as above and I will change my blogger header etc accordingly in the near future.
I might lose some follower's and I might receive some mean comment's but I'm prepared for it. I don't get a lot of hate, maybe I will now but everyone has their own opinion on #crueltyfree v #noncrueltyfree! I'll still try to stick to my favourite #crueltyfree brand's and if I don't know it's owned by one of the major beauty companies feel free to let me know so I can update my post's and become aware of who is the major brand behind that former #crueltyfree company, brand etc.
Current SOCIAL MEDIA link's are: Instagram and Twitter and I'm on Snapchat as: karenlea-anne
Thank's for taking the time to read this post, some will be up-in-arm's and other's will understand why I decided to write a post about this major change to my blog.
Have a great Summer! More from me in the next year! I can't believe it's 2017!
