Last week I received my quarterly beauty box from The Vegan Kind. For £18.50 including postage and packaging you receive 6-7 skincare/makeup products that are completely free from animal ingredients and are not tested on animals either!
Starting with the top left we have The Konjac Sponge Company Ltd French Pink Clay Facial Puff Sponge (RRP £8.99). This looks like a really interesting facial sponge, I’ve eaten konjac before but never used it to wash my face! The Sponge is mineral rich and cleanses, exfoliates and detoxifies skin.
Next there is Vitala Spa Chakra Balancing Compassion Bath and Body Oil 100ml (RRP £8.50) this smells amazing and is really relaxing in a long, hot soak!
Figs & Rouge evAcalm Perfect Calm Moisture+ AM PM Cream 50ml (RRP £24) is up next. This goes on the skin lovely and can be used pre makeup in the morning or before you go to bed.
Finishing off the top row is Weleda Almond Sensitive Skin Travel Size Body Wash 20ml (RRP £1.95) and Hand Cream 10ml (RRP £2.25) the hand cream is a good size for your handbag and the body wash will go in my overnight bag. I tend not to take my own toiletries when staying with friends or family but then I don’t like using non cruelty-free products so this is great rather than taking full size products.
On the bottom left we have Sheila’s Natural Products Face Cream Deluxe Sample (RRP full size £27.50) this is another nice face cream, so I’ll be in stock for a while.
Lastly we have Spectrum Collections Tapered Finishing Brush (£7.99). This has a feel to it and is really soft!
This box retails in at over £50 (!) So for £18.50 you can’t go wrong. As always 20p from every box goes towards Dr Hadwen Trust which funds research into alternatives to animal testing.
My box this time seems a little cream heavy with no makeup items. It may just be a case of what is available at the time but I feel a bit of planning to get a good cross section of products would be more appealing.
I was also surprised that only the konjac sponge had any markings noting vegan or cruelty free and these were only on the leaflet inside the packet and not on the outside. Nevertheless it is great being introduced to new products and cruelty free companies.
Have you used any of these products? What did you think?
