Rat​s’​ droppings, human urine and arsenic… Police warn against counterfeit cosmetics | Fashion | The Guardian.
 

Rat droppings, human urine and arsenic – just some of the substances found in fake beauty products which police say are putting consumers’ lives at risk.

Make-up, perfume, electrical hair stylers and sun cream are among the counterfeit goods being highlighted by the City of London Police in a campaign bearing the slogan “wake up – don’t fake up!”.

  1. Ick!
    I would never buy makeup from Alibaba or Chinese source for this very reason. Other sources are less likely to sell counterfeit items but I guess just being smart about the warning signs – super cheap prices, no original packaging etc. 😳

  2. I can’t imagine why people would risk buying super cheap makeup from unauthorized sellers! Thats so scary. Its not like a purse – it goes on your skin. Be safe and buy directly from the company or through reliable stores like Sephora.
