Bio-Oil is no longer cruelty free - they now sell in China

When I found Bio-Oil I was going through a particularly dry spell where my skin actually hurt. It really relieved my dry skin problem without leaving too heavy of an oil residue. It smells nice, but not overpowering and has a slightly watery consistency. It is lovely stuff. I will not repurchase Bio-Oil when my current large and small bottles are gone. Here's why:

I found documentation in November 2015 that they were cruelty free, now in December 2015 it's documented in a few sources that it is now selling in China. Though the Chinese government no longer requires testing on products produced in their own country, any product produced outside of China is routinely tested on animals.

For more information on this product and other products on my Cruelty Free vs Not Cruelty Free list. I update the page frequently.

Follow me:

Beauty boxes I subscribe to – too many boxes again!  This is an ever fluctuating list - coming and going frequently. Now that Starlooks is eliminating the custom box for the look book only subscription, I'll be leaving them and going with another box.

Boxycharm - my favorite box
E.L.F. Play Beautifully Box - cruelty free and ships every other month
Ipsy - generous sample size and sometimes full size items
BeautyFix - mostly skin care and hair care
Walmart Beauty Box - seasonal (4 times a year), mostly samples with an occassional full size item
Birchbox - a great starter box with mostly travel size products
Allure Beauty Box - also a good starter box

Here are subscription boxes that I recently unsubscribed from:

PopSugar - random lifestyle thngs, very expensive box
Starlooks - cruelty free, great cosmetics
