Ailsha Davy from Flawless and Pawless is Irelands leading expert in all this cruelty free in the makeup and beauty industry. Flawless and Pawless was set up with the goal in mind of letting consumers know what companies are cruelty free and vegan and which other ones to avoid. Ailsha also tests out new cruelty free and vegan products, available to the Irish Market and lets her followers know whats what. I was so excited to meet Ailsha and learn from what she had to say and OMG she is just full of so much information on this subject.
