I never actively wear makeups.
Now, late in my 20's, I started wanting to use them.
But the BIG questions comes whenever I standing in front of racks showing a lot of cleanser, creams, etc...
I am a muslim.
I am now living in where there's a very small population of muslim.
In regards of food, somehow I manage to survive... there's a lot of fish and an online halal food delivery.
But, how about cosmetics?
It's easy to recognize back in my country, but here?
So, first I started with brands I know back in my country.
But recently, when I looked back at PETA: an animal cruelty free site... somethings are just......
and there's a lot of unlisted Japanese companies.
Now for my daily toner, moisturizer and face cleaner, I use products from ROHTO. Typical drug store products.
I love the HadaLabo series. They didn't contain any animal derivatives and no alcohol as checked from Malaysian site. Moreover, they did not test in on animals. Safe one hurdle.
Then a new product called Yuki Gokochi (literal translation very comfortable snow) came out.
雪ごこち Yuki gokochi
That's from typical drugstore products.
Then as my willful wills, I just type halal cosmetics.
There is one with Halal certification of products from a Japanese company. A little bit pricey. I'm so going to buy it when I am a little bit richer.
Here's the site: http://www.royalgoldcream.jp/en/
But now... the rest of the makeups... it seems quite hard to find, and the other option is for me to buy online as Cruelty-Free, Animal-Free, Totally Vegan cosmetics are all outside Japan...(to name a few, they are Tarte, Urban Decay, Fx Cosmetics)
Good thing I didn't buy the whole set during the time being ignorant as I am.
Now I just need to find a good mascara, eyeliner, and foundation.
so, till then,
