Animal testing : (

Ok, sorry for the MIA but I'm back now with little issue that's been bugging me over the last few days.

And I'm going to guess by the header you know what I'm talking about.

By no means am i saying to you do or don't buy these products because i am guilty of doing so and will probably do so in the future I'm just now going to make a more informed decision.

I have chosen popular UK brands that i and people i know use:

Topshop cosmetics: NO! They do not allow testing during the making of there products or after.
Found here.

Barry M: NO! They don't test there products or ingredients on animals.

L'Oreal: YES! Although they claim to have stopped testing there finished products on animals they have refused to sign a agreement with PETA so therefore i will say yes.

Aussie hair products: NO! Aussie hair products are not tested on animals, although the company that owns them do, but none of Aussies products are tested.

MUA: NO! None of Superdrugs own products are tested on animals.

Lush: NO! Lush have a very stricked no animal testing policy!

MAC: NO! MAC does no animal testing.

Benefit: YES! Well as far as i can find, my idea is if a company is not willing to come out and say we don't test anything on animals they do!

Rimmel: YES! Again another mother company who enforces animal testing where necessary.

Soap and glory: NO (thank god)! They test on people!

Is animal testing really needed? I personally don't think so i would hate to think of Ortiz (dog in dress) or Louie (cat on bed) bellow could be subjected to painful procedures so i could wear my makeup and wash my hair. As i said this is just to make me more conscious of what i buy.

Any thoughts on this please comment below.
