Beauty That Won’t Kill or Harm: A Review of BWC Beauty Products

So I was happy when I got to test a couple of products from Beauty Without Cruelty (BWC). BWC has a huge line of cruelty-free vegetarian products for skin, body and hair care, as well as a cosmetics line. This is  an ethical company whose merchandise is made with natural, safe ingredients. I really like that they also have a huge range of products that are gluten-free.

Beauty Without Cruelty cosmetics was founded in England almost 50 years ago by trustees of the BWC shopping-cosmetics2Charitable Trust, an animal welfare organization with a business philosophy that is 100% vegetarian and 100% natural.

I tried their nail polish and lip gloss, and liked them both very much. I did not find the nail polish to have such a strong odor associated with nail polishes. I did, however, feel that the polish come off a bit sooner than I would have liked. The lip gloss I absolutely loved. It was hydrating to my lips and stayed on for a long time.
