I’m not a fan of oily textures when it comes to skincare. That being said, this past year I’ve discovered and fallen in love with emulsifying oil cleansers. It took me way longer than I care to admit to find out about those. It’s shameful. Not only because I pride myself in being a connoisseur of all things makeup related, but because I might have gone through cleansers more often and stumble upon these sooner if I didn’t skip taking off my makeup before going to bed so often.
I got this as a Christmas gift from Sir Fiancé. I think it was part of their holiday releases, but it’s still available for sale. He got me this, and I quote, “because since Kat Von D is no longer part of it, it’s ok to review things from this brand again. And this packaging is 100% recyclable”. I’m in shock at how much attention he pays. Actually, it’s worse: he researches.
I don’t think I’m that attentive. Do I need do step up my game? Do I have to start learning about cars?? I’m not ready to care about motors (and I’m an engineer by training!).
Like I mentioned before, one of these days I was exercising my regular dose of procrastination and fell down the shoe rabbit hole into the vegan world.
A lot of brands that currently make shoes without leather, using cheaper plastic as a replacement, employ an obvious marketing maneuver to label the material as “vegan-leather” when veganism has nothing to do with it. What pisses me off is not so much that they are trying to re-brand a cost reducing strategy as an ethical intention, it’s mainly because those materials don’t respect the vegan principle of protecting the environment.
