The legal loopholes are staggering. Don't feel bad, most companies exploit these loopholes to try and deceive customers. It depends what you are comfortable with. It seems like this really bothers you; you could try and return the item- if they don't accept the return, you've already paid the money and you might as well use it. I personally would return the item, but that's just me. I'd say just be more careful in the future, everyone makes these mistakes.

Honestly, if it were me I would just try to find a different skin cream that didn't test on animals. Sometiems they're more expensive but at least then I would have a clean conscience. Plus you can sometimes find great discounts online. There's also natural remedies you could look into as well, such as making your own mixtures at home with things like olive oil, many of which have great results. Feel free to message me about that if you want to know more about it! Most importantly, try not to be too hard on yourself though. You didn't know this cream did test on animals when you bought it, and have now used it and become used to it. It's definetely not in any way your fault. In fact, I consider you a good person for caring so much about this. Many others wouldn't even give it a second thought. So good on you for not only thinking of your own happiness, but our furry friends as well. Whatever you choose to do, you are an admirable person in my eyes. :) Edit: Oh, my bad! I didn't catch that you bought it from Ebay. Honestly, if you like it enough, maybe it'd be better just to use the rest of it so it doesn't go to waste. You're right; it's really not supporting the company imo, and at least you'd be getting your money's worth out of it. After that, you'll never have to use it again. Only use the rest if you think that's really the best choice though. I'd say it's really your call from here. Either way, you'd be being ethical. x

I am a regular Ebay user, and I would definitely go to the home page, and open up chat with an EB agent and lodge a complaint, because not only is this unethical it goes against "trading standards". And feeling so strongly, I would cancel my purchase with the seller and request a full refund stating that their claim is dishonest. If you are really stuck for a cream over the Christmas period use E45 which has no lanolin in it at all and is therefore, I think, not tested on animals.
