Barry M Haul

Barry M Haul

I have been hearing about Barry M for a long time. I knew that they were cruelty-free, had lots of vegan options, were popular in the UK and Europe, and not sold in the US. Because we have a lot of readers and subscribers in Europe, I wanted to place an order of vegan products from Barry M. In this video, I share what I picked up and share swatches as well as my initial thoughts on many of the products.

Hum Nutrition Raw Beauty Green Superfood Powder Review

Hum Nutrition Raw Beauty Green Superfood Powder Review

I had been looking for a good greens powder to add to my smoothies for a while, and when I heard about the Hum Nutrition Raw Beauty Green Superfood Powder I decided to give it a try. The mix of raw organic greens and adapotgenic herbs in the ingredients were really interesting to me. Reading through the ingredient list, I just saw one thing after another that I had heard would be a great supplement. I was both intrigued and put off by the mint chocolate chip flavor, but decided that it was worth trying.

Claims: “Helps boost energy, radiant skin and metabolism. Daily raw organic greens in a superfood powder. Antioxidants and adaptogens for energy plus enzymes, probiotics, and fibers for metabolism. This formula contains more than 30 beauty detox superfoods to help support energy, radiant skin, and a healthy metabolism.

It includes alkalizing greens, detoxifying and energizing herbs, beauty-boosting phytonutrients, and digestion-supporting fiber. Best of all, never before has so much goodness tasted so delicious!

China Considering Alternatives to Animal Testing

China Considering Alternatives to Animal Testing

As the cruelty-free world changes, and the cruelty-free stance of brands can change for better or worse, it’s always exciting to hear positive news. Today I got some exciting news from my friends at Humane Society International that I wanted to share with you! In China, where animal testing on cosmetics is currently required by law, they have released a proposal that would introduce a new in vitro test that could help reduce animal testing!

These in vitro tests are used in many other regions to show that cosmetic ingredients are safe to use, but are not yet generally recognized in China. In fact, testing on animals is required in China.
