So many people have been asking me about brands that are cruelty free and organic! Due to laws around the world it can difficult to always get this but Europe are leading the way!
Avril Cosmetics are a French company who pride themselves on affordable and cruelty free skincare and make up.
This is the first time I’ve tested a whole brand that is organic and cruetly free. I love how the packaging is simple and yet demanding on quality. They specifically focus on quality and make the packaging simple, even when delivering its packaging it tried to be as friendly as possible to environment. There nothing worse than ordering something online and getting it sent in a box the size of your house!
“A product certified organic by Ecocert does not contain GMOs, parabens, phenoxyethanol, nanoparticles, silicon, PEG, synthetic perfumes and dyes. Ingredients derived from animals are also prohibited (except those naturally produced by them such as honey, milk …).
In addition, the label Organic Cosmetic by Ecocert guarantees that:
– Minimum 95% of the total ingredients are natural or from natural origin.
– Minimum 95% of the plant ingredients of the formula are from organic farming.
– Minimum 10% of the total ingredients are from organic farming.
And lastly, in accordance with European regulations, we do no animal testing, whether for raw materials or for finished products.” Avril Cosmetics
I’ve tried and tested the repair shampoo and condition following my return from holiday! I wanted something that would help revive my hair from the sun damage. The first thing I noticed is that there is almost no smell to them! The shampoo is great quality and cleanses your hair perfectly. The conditioner on the other hand lacks the smoothing quality some other brands have, but on the whole is an average conditioner to use. This may be because I have thick hair so on thinner hair I think this would perform better but great for only 7 Euro each!
I also picked up the make up brush set which contains 5 brushes and comes with a make up bag. The packaging is simple and beautiful, Ideal for travelling with. The brushes are very soft and excellent quality. I was pleasantly surprised! They use a mixture of hair including goat hair and Japanese pony hair. The make up bag is organic and a really good size to store the brushes and extra make up!
I am so happy I have tried this brand, they have so many new things on their website and I cant wait to try more products. The added benefit is not only is the quality great, it’s guilt free and cruelty free and most importantly AFFORDABLE!
