Scruffy Chops- A Dog has to look good too!

A few weeks back I was contacted by Scruffy Chops to do a review on their Dog shampoo and conditioner. While not beauty related to me, it is beauty related to my dog, so I thought- Hey! Why not? A dog's gotta look good to! We received the package and Chewy, while not the fan of a bath or anything to do with water, was kinda excited when I told him the package was for him. Now he probably was hoping for snacks, but he was content with a new Shampoo and Conditioner!

 With all of the bad things we keep hearing about Dog products making our little pals ill, I am glad that Scruffy Chops uses 98% Organic and natural ingredients PH balanced for a dogs skin and coat. 
Now for the Nitty Gritty!

First the shampoo!!
 The Shampoo was a nice consistency and lathered up nice!  It had a fruity vanilla scent. It was a very full thick lather and a little went a long way! I could already tell this was far superior to my current big box Pet store Shampoo I was currently using.

Rinsing was easy but did take a bit longer than normal due to the thickness and consistency of the rich lather!

I've never used a conditioner before so this was a new experience for both Chewy and I! It was a nice thick conditioner with a Vanilla type scent. It rubbed in well and rinsed out clean leaving no visible or tactile residue.

At the end I would have to say this is a Very good Dog Shampoo and Conditioner that is non irritating. Chewy has some scratching issues and this seemed to have lessened the amount of scratching, though not completely eliminating it.  When Chewy gets stinky he starts to smell like Fritos, LOL. Scruffy Chops has kept the Frito smell at bay longer than his normal shampoo, and has left his coat soft and shiny with an almost fuller feel. I am looking forward to using this again for Chewy's next bath! Thanks Scruffy Chops for offering this to us for review! We are going to spread the Love and let others know of this great replacement for your regular Dog Shampoo and Conditioner!  You can read more about Scruffy Chops on their website!

Chewy says A+

We just got a new addition! Say hello to Milo! He is looking forward to his 1st Bath with Scruffy Chops soon!

Good News! Copied from the Urban Decay Website.

UD Decides Not to Sell in China

After careful consideration of many issues, we have decided not to start selling Urban Decay products in China. While several factors were important in reaching this decision, ultimately we did not feel we could comply with current regulations in China and remain true to our core principles. We know there are many progressive consumers in China who would embrace an opportunity to purchase non-animal tested products - our hope remains that we have the chance to offer Urban Decay products to these consumers someday in the future.

Following our initial announcement, we realized that we needed to step back, carefully review our original plan, and talk to a number of individuals and organizations that were interested in our decision. We regret that we were unable to respond immediately to many of the questions we received, and appreciate the patience our customers have shown as we worked through this difficult issue.

Since our founding in 1996, we have been committed to ending animal testing in the cosmetics industry. As demonstrated by the renewed support we have received from organizations like PETA and the CCIC, this principle remains at our core. Urban Decay does not test its finished products on animals, nor do we allow others to test on our behalf, and we require our suppliers to certify that the raw materials used in the manufacture of our products are not tested on animals. Urban Decay is proud to be 100% cruelty-free.
