Je t’aime – “I love you” or “I love this” in French
I opened up this blog to talk about my current interests and hobbies; basically anything I currently love (hence the name, Je t’aime). I tend to go through phases of what I like, which I’m sure most people do, so I want to leave the topics on here open to whatever I am interested at the moment. For the most part my posts are related to cruelty-free makeup and skincare.
My topics are motivated solely on the mood I’m in and what I want to blog about. I do not get paid or sponsored to write reviews and all products I mention on this blog are purchased by myself or given to me as gifts from people in my life and never from companies. I do not have this blog for popularity or to make money, which is why I don’t have ads. This is purely for fun and to offer my experiences to others who may find interest in them.
I decided to go cruelty-free in 2011 after learning that animal testing was still very prevalent in the cosmetic industry. I was under the false assumption that it was a thing of the past and felt very guilty for buying products that caused harm to animals. I began educating myself and found that many resources online were provided conflicting information. So I started contacting companies directly and decided to start posting their responses on here for others to read and make up their own minds.
