Where’s My Luxury?!

By now I’m sure it’s become apparent that I try to live as cruelty free as possible which means I  buy only brands who are certified cruelty free or vegan(though I’m not myself vegan) and I think I’ve worked out one of the main reasons why more people don’t buy cruelty free products. All the items like razors, toothbrushes and the like are very very basic…now we all know that everyone likes a little luxury and I’m no exception which I’m more then happy to admit and I want to know where it is.

Why when we’ve got Venus razors is my vegan-company-owned razor so plain? The companies don’t need to test anything all they need to do is upgrade the products, have a thicker moisture strip or put some moistursing gel around it, add some more blades. It’s the same with toothbrushes, while the removable head is cool(you buy new heads rather then the whole brush, same as with an electronic toothbrush) but its still very basic. Why can’t they make them with bristles angled differently like other companies? For me its not important, I have no choice my ethics and emotions wont let me knowingly support animal testing companies but I know for others the cruelty that the companies fund doesn’t matter as long as they have the whitest teeth or cleanest shave.

That said the cosmetics, skin care, hair care and shave creaming/gel have all been amazing, nice on my sensitive skin, mostly natural and good at controlling my oily kin plus my hair is better then it’s ever been. They’ve got that stuff down pat but the other stuff is lagging behind and it’s the animals that suffer, and I also want a better toothbrush lol.


About Mandy

I live with an assortment of illnesses and one illness causes me chronic pain so I live with my dad. I'm lucky that Dad looks after me, even though I'm an adult, which allows me to actually live a life. I love animals. I have two dogs, five adopted guinea pigs, and two small tropical fish tanks. I listen and sing (badly) to mainly rock music. I really enjoy reading and often read an assortment of different genres but I do have a special interest in true crime. I was studying psychology with the intention of specialising in Forensic Psychology and when I'm able to I will return to university.
