Un-boxing November in January, it doesn’t make any sense but it happened. I was introduced to a subscription vegan beauty box, “The Vegan Kind” by my Sister who is also Vegan. I wanted to know if there were any vegan equivalent beauty boxes to rival the mainstream beauty boxes (there just had to be). I too wanted to join in all the un-boxing fun. I thought I’d be kind to myself (more like treat myself for a year), come on I’m a Lifestyle blogger!
Maggie Anne Gel Effect Nail Polish
What they say – Slightly thicker than your average nail polish – due to being a gel, ultra glossy, streak free, toxic free and vegan.
My experience – Great pigmentation, last up to 5 days (which is just fine for me, as I start to get bored after the first 3 days). A great colour to transition into spring and summer. Although a great colour to wear all year round. The colour is more orange toned, so not a true red. The polish its self has metallic tones. Very pretty and slightly different from wearing red.
Noughty To The Rescue Intense Moisture treatment
What they say – repair and transform frizzy damaged hair, hydrates, vegan.
My experience – smells wonderful! Left my hair feeling soft and easy to untangle. Keeps my locks hydrated after being washed.
Dr Botanicals Tropical Invigorating cream
What they say – light weight formula, natural ingredients.
My experience – A light sweet smell, my hands felt moisturised and soft with the first use. A perfect size to carry around in your bag.
Fruu Skincare Tinted Mulberry Lipbalm
What they say – Lips are nourished with coconut oil, mango butter, aloe vera and banana extract. Great for sensitive lips.
My Experience – My lips felt moisturised, until I re-applied after a meal or drink, long lasting, and gives the perfect amount of tinted colour to the lips. Wearing this made me feel pretty.
Bellaplerre Excite Shimmer Powder
What they say – A beautiful shimmer powder that can be used as a highlighter on the cheekbones and collar bones. Suitable for all skin types.
My experience – A little too pale as a highlighter for me. As I would go for a golden shade to compliment my skin tone. The shimmer is in a perfect size pot, that allow for an easy deposit on a night out.
