Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  • Is Dust & Dance glitter vegan and cruelty free? Yes - none of the products (including the glue) contain animal products or by-products and none are tested on animals 
  • What is the best way to apply glitter? As with all cosmetics, irritation can occur so always perform a patch test prior to use & always read the safety instructions first.
SKIN: Apply a thin layer of cosmetic glue or balm & allow to go tacky. Apply glitter by pressing on with finger tips. Remove with cotton wool and baby oil & soap & water, taking care not to scrub too hard
HAIR: Apply a small amount of hair gel before patting or sprinkling glitter on, and then set with hair spray. Remove with shampoo and water.
NAILS: Apply by pressing on to nails after the base coat and before the top coat. 
  • How do I get it off?  Baby oil and cotton wool or good old fashioned soap & warm water.
  • What is Bioglitter made from? Dust & Dance biodegradable glitter is made from plant cellulose (that's stuff found in trees to you and me! 🌳) cosmetically safe and feels softer on the skin vs. plastic based glitters.

 Is it safe to wear glitter on your face? As mentioned above, please be careful not to put glitter above or too close to your eyes. Although the glitter is all safe to use on the skin, the glitter shapes it is cut into can be abrasive and cause irritation if they get into the eye. Please also be careful to remove glitter carefully so that it is not abrasive to the skin (don't rub too hard). As with all cosmetic products, if you are worried about your skin it is best to test out a little as a patch test first before going all out and glittering your whole face! Dust & Dance can't be held responsible if glitter is used in any way other than advised and an adverse reaction occurs.
