Models Own often have offers on their website, so when I fancied buying some new shades of nail polish last month there was only one place to go. I got 5 polishes for £20 (they're usually £5 each) but their current offer is an even better 6-for-£20 across everything, including make up, so it's well worth having a look.

Toasty is going cruelty-free.

I was using the Naked haircare products I reviewed the other day and wondered whether buying more natural products was the way to go. Then I saw Hayley's blog post about how she's going to go cruelty free  by that she means not using any products that are tested on animals or featuring any of those products on her blog.

She posted a link to the 'naughty list'  a list of companies that do test on animals  and I was absolutely gobsmacked at how many there were. I'd been blissfully unaware and assumed, somewhat naively, that most companies didn't really do that anymore.

I made a list of all the brands I own and then did some snooping online, checking out the PETA website and also the websites of the companies themselves. One thing I noticed is that the companies who don't test on animals make that very clear, while the companies that do are much more evasive about their policies, which are a lot more difficult to find on their websites.

There are a few exceptions to this trend  Estee Lauder and Clinique both admit that they're trying to eliminate animal testing but have to carry it out when required to by law. Sounds to me like the law needs to be changed!

Beth, 23, South East England. I'm a writer with a love of books, lipstick, and the Oxford comma. I love beauty and I also love animals, so I only buy, use, and feature products from cruelty-free brands. (Seriously though, I am the person who stops to fuss over every dog she sees.) You can also expect posts about vegan/vegetarian food, and plenty of musings about life as a 20-something. Want to get in touch? Email me at beth.toasty@gmail.com
