Question of the Week: If you could travel anywhere in the world with the sole purpose of buying beauty products, where would you go and why?
I get SO excited to try new beauty products when I travel! If I had to pick one place to try new products, it would probably be Japan. The Japanese are so innovative, and they often have products that are so different from what we have in the states. The only issue for me, is trying to figure out if the products are cruelty free. That’s why I haven’t reviewed a lot of Japanese or Korean skincare or beauty products. They don’t have the same standards as EU brands, and they are unlikely to be on Leaping Bunny’s list. Many times the language barrier makes it really hard to determine if the brand is using ingredient suppliers or labs that test, or if they sell in countries that require testing (like China and parts of Brazil). So that being said, if I had a better idea of which brands were cruelty free, Japan would be my dream country to shop in! The country is definitely on my bucket list to visit, so hopefully I’ll get to do that someday!
