Others Experiences

I have been aware for some months that there have been issues with GlitterSniffer. I read a lot of blogs (please don't tell my boss!) and would like to consider myself a savvy consumer. It was the posts below that convinced me to no longer use the products I had purchased from GS.

Phyrra had concerns about repackaging. While not an issue of safety, it is still a bad business practice to resell products that you state are handblended.

Aijuswhanakno was sold pigments that were not approved for cosmetic use. The listing stated they were not eye safe, which is not the same as cosmetically safe.

Nikhedonia was sold a collection that was not cosmetically safe. This was not stated in the listing at the time of purchase.

These pictures surfaced of unsafe packing and product creation:
No gloves or mask used to cut soap, and edibles on the same table as the product

 No gloves used while packing product.
 Suspected  non-use of gloves while packing product. Since GS is not actually packing product in this photo I say it is suspected as there are telltale stains on the hand.
