And unless you’ve dug deep into Bionic Beauty’s past, you might have missed my old article “Goodyear Lashes for You“. Did you know that tires can be recycled into mascara ingredients? Personally, that one isn’t “icky” to me, but my geeky side finds it quite interesting!

Holy mackerel…..!! I knew of a few “gross” ingredients, but NOT all of the ones mentioned. ICK, ICK, IIIIIICK. Makes me want to swear off of all cosmetics and skin and haircare items. But I know I wouldn’t be able to completely. Part of me wants to believe that the incormation revealed is just scare tactics by whomever. But another part of me believes what was said. And I can’t even bear to repeat any of it, I’m so incredibly grossed out. Think I’ll be skipping lunch today, and red lipstick for the rest of my life.

OK, NOW THAT MY WORLD IS TURNED UPSIDE DOWN, NOW I KNOW WHY I AM WITH PETA. I AM A NATURAL MAKEUP TYPE GIRL AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHY I AM. I KNEW ABOUT ALOT OF THINGS THAT EXISTED IN PRODUCTS, BUT A FEW WERE AN “EYEOPENER” FOR ME.
GOOD GOD, THIS IS UNFORGIVEABLE WHAT THEY DO. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR REASSURING ME TO BE THE “GO NATURAL AS I CAN”
WITHOUT ALL THE EXTRA GARBAGE THOWN INTO THESE PRODUCTS. ~~~~~~YUCK~~~~~
