My Vegan Adventure
I was bought up a meat eater and for years it never crossed my mind that there was anything resembling an animal on my plate. However, after a trip to Cambodia in 2013 where my eyes were abruptly awoken to the fact, I began to consider my food and decided to become a vegetarian. It was an easy transition and I never looked back.
Jumping a few years ahead, in 2016 I was influenced by a wave of campaigns for Veganism and I willingly exposed myself to footage of the treatment of animals in the dairy industry. I knew something had to change, and the first step was to cut out all animal products from my diet. It was a trickier progression, but the most positive decision I have made for sure.
With the conversion to veganism came a world of new and exciting things to try but I found a lack of information with regards to beauty and cosmetic products. Being a lover of all things make up and having studied the subject at college, I took on the challenge to discover new vegan and cruelty free cosmetics. And so, Beauty-Not-Cruelty was born!
My aim is to provide a source of tried and trusted products to enable new and current vegans to make the transition smoothly and without expense. So join me on my journey to discover the best and worst products out there and please help by sharing your experiences and opinions too.
