Ladies, always be careful when shopping for your favourite brands! A recent sting by City of London police saw a haul of counterfeit cosmetics that were lab-tested, according to the BBC. What they discovered was shocking– traces of rat droppings, lead, arsenic and even human urine (!!) in fake cosmetics, mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, foundations and perfumes.
1) Never settle for anything less than the genuine product.
2) Familiarise yourself with your favourite brands and learn to recognise the colours, logos and packaging.
3) Always buy from authorised counters and stores.
4) Be wary of slashed prices of cosmetics and skincare from random stalls.
