The most important thing to me is that my products are good and kind. I'm not OK with putting anything on my body or in my hair that involved the torture of animals. And let's be real: Torture is what happens to animals that are tested on.
I joined Birchbox myself although "beauty" is not my goal. (I've given up on that.) But I can't wait every month to see what they send me . It's always a neat surprise and worth a lot more than the $10 it costs.
