Review: Cruelty Free Skin Care Products

Since I have just started using cruelty free products from the beginning of 2011, I am still in the process of replacing animal tested products with cruelty free ones. I am not throwing away the animal tested ones, instead I am using what I have and when they finish I replace them cruelty free ones found on crueltyfreemalta.com Just to let you know my skin type is sensitive and oily. The toner and scrub are not mentioned. This is because either they are not cruelty free for now or because I am unsure whether they are.

Cleansers

Soap Café Herbal Blast facial & body soap

This soap was given to me as a gift from Soap Cafe. I use this soap twice a day and I am planning on buying one for my body.
