  1. I SWEAR, you need to be on CSPAN, or an actual news network. Your presentation is better than anyone I’ve EVER seen on CNN 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
    If my name was Debbie Dingle, I’d consider making a change, just saying 😕
    Interesting news on the domestic violence training. In the 90’s case of Lorena Bobbit, crucial testimony was given by a customer of HERS, where she was a nail tech. The customer said when Lorena raised her sleeves to begin work, her arms were absolutely covered with bruises. The customer was able to obtain Lorena’s confidence, but was unable to convince her to leave her marriage. Lorena stated that if this woman helped her to leave, her spouse would kill not only Lorena, but the woman as well. Her testimony was critical in securing a not guilty verdict for Lorena, in the trial for malicious wounding of her spouse.

  2. EVERYONE has a responsibility to help those that are victims of domestic abuse. Recently my daughter got out of an abusive relationship but her abuser was allowed to file for benefits with the state in a backhanded way to steal her children from her. Being in an abusive relationship changes the ability of the abused to fight back, including being able to protect their children. The abuser has now had the children removed and given back to their mother after a year because he finally physically left a mark. The children and my daughter are all in PTSD therapy and trying to move forward with their lives. If ANYONE would have stepped up the state may have actually listened to us, her family, and none of this would have happened. Ok, off of my soapbox now…

  3. Thought I'd share the following clarification regarding China's new stance on animal-testing, from Suzana at CrueltyFreeKitty.com:
    "SUMMARY: China disclosed that routine post-market testing will no longer involve animals, but animals could still be used under certain conditions for post-market testing. Pre-market tests still involve animals (A LOT of animals), so China is still far from ending animal testing. But it’s a step in the right direction and we’re hopeful!"

    She's my chief source of up-to-date cruelty-free info. I hope this is helpful to anyone who is/tries to be cruelty-free, but maybe isn't signed up to her mailing list.

  4. Congratulations 🎊 to the team that compiled all this info and for you who delivered so well. Thank you.

  5. Hey Jen I love your reviews! can you please do a review on lookfantastic please I would love your advise, I live in Australia and hard to find a good high quality subscription box.

  6. Hi Jen! I just found you & ya got me hook, line & sinker! You are the most honest, thorough & knowledgeable beauty tuber of all times! 😎 Thank you for all the behind the scenes endless hours of research & product testing.

  7. I actually have recently REALLY struggled with how many companies are throwing CBD into products. I don’t feel it’s necessary, it’s a marketing tactic, an effective one, but I’m HIGHLY (no pun intended) allergic to marijuana and hemp derivatives. More than once I’ve purchased skin care from a line, like Murad, that never had cannabinoids or hemp products in the ingredients only to have a horrible reaction. I have to be hyper vigilant now and it’s just annoying. If it offered amazing skincare benefits I’d understand, but it doesn’t. It’s just solid marketing, it’s cheap and it makes people excited enough to buy.

  8. Im not one to be a complete environmentalist but still Single use are you kidding me ?!! It’s so dumb it’s like that bag filled with single use Neutrogena wipes like WHY?!!!!!!!!!! It’s just a waste of plastic and then we wonder why our planet is being harmed….

  9. Oh jeez as soon as I saw the thumbnail about Stila I said out loud “no no no no….” I can’t stand it.

  10. I am SO ready for Cruelty Free to become the standard in cosmetics – and it all has to be verified by one ultimate over-seer. Tired of seeing 'Cruelty Free" printed on items that are actually not cruelty free at all. There is more than one company that issues the qualification & their rules vary wildly. Let's make ending pain & suffering the standard practice in beauty!

  11. CBD is very effective. Internally and topically as skincare. The only issue is that many companies use so little in their products that it is almost non existent. Dont buy brands like Cannuka or any other product sold in a big name store. They are making money hand over fist by fooling people, plain and simple. Its insulting to the customer and the REAL Cannabis industry, which places people and patients over profit. CBD isolate also has to be activated for the molecule to be utilized by our cannabinoid receptors, which we all were born with. Some companies are putting inactive CBD into products. Make sure you purchase from people that understand the science. One more thing- dont waste your money on Kopari “coconut melt”. Its JUST COCONUT OIL!!! Seriously, lets put a stop to these companies robbing us!

  12. Jen, I used to watch your channel a couple/few years ago. You have come a long way baby! You are so professional, I feel like I am watching a real life news cast (I mean that as a compliment of course)! Great job!

  13. I returned all Stila products I’d bought within the last month and threw the rest away. It made me sick to even look at it.

  14. I'm super glad from all the good news – fighting for product safety with kid's make-up, China moving towards cruelty-free and more education on recognising abuse! What an excellent week!

    I'm also liking the grace mascara wand handles!

  15. I do believe that weed helps in skin health. I use it in a more direct fashion though. I noticed that hippies I knew had much less wrinkles than there same age counterparts. Plus it helps with my multiple pain issues. Glad to hear about China.

  16. Great and informative as usual. Just a suggestion…. when using abbreviations (CBD etc) in reporting, please reiterate that the full name or meaning of the abbreviation. Thank you….

  17. If it matters it is the entire state of Illinois that requires the domestic violence awareness training for salon professionals, they are required to have this training by September 1 2019 and the law has actually been in effect since January 2017 🙂 Thanks for mentioning it!!!!

  18. Ambules have been around forever and their made out of plants. Imagine if foundation or concealer came that.
