Mario Badescu Cruelty Free Products

Mario Badescu Cruelty Free

Here’s my latest instagram photo with my Mario Badescu Cruelty Free products! I wanted to revisit my 2013 post about Mario Badescu cruelty free products. Since that time, I’ve continued to purchase the skincare for myself and my family. From time to time, I’ve been asked publicly, and privately, on social media, if Mario Badescu cruelty free status is still current. Yes, it is! Mario Badescu does not sell in China, and so I can fortunately write that Mario Badescu cruelty free products will continue to be purchased by me, and recommended to readers!  I love when I can trust a brand to not sell out!

I’m sure we’ve all bought multiples of the types of products that are in the Fresh Start Kit. It sometimes takes a bit to find products that you love, and would then become staples in your home, when you travel, for your office, etc.. All the companies pictured below have an item in the Fresh Start Kit; read on for my review of each item that I received last week.

My Beauty Bunny Cruelty Free All-Natural AHA Moisturizer

My Beauty Bunny Cruelty Free All-Natural AHA Moisturizer

Over a month of testing on my face, I can honestly write that My Beauty Bunny Cruelty Free All-Natural AHA Moisturizer is the one to choose if you want to have beautiful, healthy-looking skin!

My Beauty Bunny Cruelty Free All-Natural AHA Moisturizer

There are so many facial moisturizers on the market, but here’s why you should try this one. In addition to the fact that My Beauty Bunny Cruelty Free All-Natural AHA Moisturizer is cruelty free, it’s also vegan. The My Beauty Bunny Moisturizer can be used on all skin types, as there are no harsh chemicals. The AHA (alpha hydroxy acid is 5%) will gently exfoliate your skin, and help to minimize the lines on your face. However, the AHA is sourced only from all natural fruit acids.  The tea extracts (green, white and red) help to heal skin and protect it from premature aging. The My Beauty Bunny Moisturizer has a very pleasant light berry grapefruit fragrance.

My Beauty Bunny Cruelty Free All-Natural AHA Moisturizer is formulated without parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, GMO’s, petrochemicals, triclosan, gluten, mineral oil or animal products!

The My Beauty Bunny Cruelty Free All-Natural AHA Moisturizer has the texture of a serum, and was very hydrating for the patches of dry skin that I was experiencing as the winter was winding down here on the east coast. I used only My Beauty Bunny Moisturizer, and did not have to add any additional moisturizer to my face.  The lotion was very lightweight, and absorbed very quickly into my skin. I know that the moisturizer will last a long time, as I only needed one pump to cover my face. As per the directions, I kept the moisturizer away from my eyes.

Love the pump on the Moisturizer!

Final Thoughts on

My Beauty Bunny Cruelty Free AHA Moisturizer

I used My Beauty Bunny Moisturizer for over a month, twice a day; once in the morning, and again in the evening, after washing my face. I had no adverse skin reactions, in fact, my face felt incredibly soft and smooth.  In addition to making sure you wear sunscreen, I would also highly recommend My Beauty Bunny Cruelty Free All Natural AHA Moisturizer as it helped my skin to look healthy and bright! It’s a winner, and Jen should be really proud to have her name on this cruelty free, vegan skincare product.

Boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel Review


Having never tried/reviewed anything from Boscia, I will give you the two top reasons I chose to try something from this company, and why I chose this particular product.

1. Boscia has this statement: “We do not conduct any testing of ingredients or products on animals. In addition, our products do not contain any animal ingredients.”

2. I have sensitive skin. Bosica’s statement: “…We have avoided potentially irritating ingredients like preservatives. If there is a particular ingredient you are allergic to, please read through the ingredient list carefully for each product.”  Boscia does not use preservatives because they believe that preservatives in skincare are one main cause of skin irritations. That is certainly something to check for on the labels of your current products!


Boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel

What it is:

A sulfate-free makeup remover and cleanser, derived from amino acids, that deeply cleanses while preserving natural moisture.

What it is formulated to do:
This purifying lather gently, yet thoroughly, purifies, and refines the look of pores, and leaves the skin feeling fresh and comfortable. Botanical amino acids, hydrangea leaf, green tea, and geranium offer natural complexion-protecting and perfecting benefits.

Boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel is formulated without:

– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Synthetic Fragrances
– Synthetic Dyes
– Phthalates
– GMOs
– Triclosan

The product also specifically stated it was for Normal to Oily and Combination skin


This is advertised as a sulfate-free cleanser and makeup remover. While I agree that it does remove makeup, my preference was to use this solely as a cleanser, and it was great when used exactly as advertised to “deep clean…skin while protecting its natural moisture.”

Bosica Cleanser Contains:

Willowherb, an anti-irritant, which helps calm skin inflammation and reduces visible redness and irritation. (I believe this is a great cleanser in that regard.) Jojoba Leaf, Hydrangea Leaf, and Botanical Amino Acids

Final Thoughts on Boscia

It’s easy to use. Simply dampen your face with water and apply a small amount to your palm and add a small amount of water. With your fingertips, rub the cleanser into your palm to make lather. Gently massage the cleanser on to your face in circular motions for one minute. Rinse with lukewarm water!

My skin never felt dry or “tight” after I cleansed with the Boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel. I have used this both in the morning and at night, and I definitely recommend!
