Vegan Cuts Beauty Box July ‘18 |Shine your light

I just ate the BEST Spicy Black Bean Veggie Burger!

What are your favorite Vegan Meals or snacks!?

*Vegan Cuts Beauty Box is $22.95 a month. It is cruelty free, vegan, and usually pretty clean beauty items. 5-6 full or deluxe sample size. *

This months Box contains….

Crazy Rumors Ruby Red Grapefruit Lip Balm $3.50

I think Crazy Rumors is my favorite lip balm brand.

But, I am not big on Grapefruit, so I may let someone else have this so they can discover the brand as well.

Use code VCUTS15 for 15% off your order until 9/1/18

Sade Baron Rhein Body Lotion $8

This Lotion is really light weight- great for summer. It has a light scent of peppermint and ylang ylang. Rhein just became my new desk Lotion!

Sappo Hill Bamboo Charcoal Soap $3

I love using soap bars as much as possible. Much less waste.

This one doesn’t really have a scent, so it will be perfect for the face or more sensitive areas.

My Magic Mud Toothpaste $4

I have seen Magic Mud products at TJ Maxx. I actually see a lot of natural brands there. It is where I get my deodorant. In case you cared.

I am really interested to see if this activated Charcoal tooth paste works. I drink A LOT of teas and coffees. So, if it works I’ll probably buy the lines products in full size.

Yes To Triple Masking Kit $4

We al know I already love the Yes To products. I think it is really cool that they have come out with these kits and I am excited to give it a try. I have never done multimasking before!

Zatik Naturals Gratitude Face Serum $32

The Gratitude Serum is meant to hydrate skin and soften fine lines. It isn’t as liquidy as other serums I have tried, and I really like that. The Serum has a fresh earthy scent.

*use code ZATIK20 for 20% off your order on their site until 10/31/18

Balanced Guru Love Aromatherapy $15

This tiny thing is $15?!

Anyway, I love aromatherapy so I was glad to see this in the box.

I can’t find what oils are in this on the box, but whatever it is it smells beautiful!

$69.50 worth of awesome cruelty free and vegan products for just $22!!! Vegan Cuts literally never lets me down.

What are your favorite masks to multimask with?

BoxyCharm July 2018 | Road Trippin’

I love to travel. My most favorite place in the entire world is up in the mountains near Bozeman Montana. Camping in the mountains is where I feel the most at home.

Where is your favorite place to visit?

BoxyCharm is $21 a month and contains 5-6 full/deluxe sample sized beauty items

This months theme is travel themed. Let’s see what BC packed. (Lame.)

Dr.Brandt No More Baggage $42

I don’t have anything to say about this eye cream besides that it is NOT cruelty free. Passed it on to my mom.

Crown Brush Fuego Eyeshadow Palette $29.99

First and foremost, I want to say that I am very confused about Crown’s CF status. Logical Harmony has made posts about some of their brush sets in the past, but I think it is still gray listed as a brand. But, other sources say it is CF?

HELP!

Anyway, this Palette is really pretty.

Here is a terrible swatch of a few of the shades. If there was a matte cream shade this would be the perfect palette for me. I love warm tones, I think they make my eyes look pretty.

I will do a look post with this palette!

Wander Beauty Unlashed Volume and Curl Mascara $24

Wander beauty is CF!!

This is my first product from the brand wanted. I think the packaging is really cute. I have heard good things and I love trying new mascaras.

Note Cosmetics Luminous Silk Blusher “Desert Rose” $11.99

From what I can find, Note is 100% CF and Vegan!!! I may be mistaken, but I really hope I am not because $12 is not bad!

The formula is very soft and packs a punch as far as pigment goes.

The shade is really pretty and is a great shade for summer. I am love how sturdy the compact is and that it has a mirror. It also has a useless brush.

Chella Beauty Eyebrow Cream $26

Chella is CF!

Some how this is the 1st Chella product I have gotten. Everyone else has gotten their products in subscription boxes before.

I have heard mixed reviews so we will see how this goes.

That is is for my box! I do have to say 4 out of 5 isn’t bad!! That’s still a value of $91.98!! I do love BoxyCharm.

Which of these products would you like to see a review on?

Should I pick up more from Note Cosmetics?

Goddess Provisions July 2018 | Water is Sacred

I love being on and in the water. It makes me feel so at peace. But, I have to force myself to drink water. For some reason I just hate it! I wish I could be one of those super healthy people who only drink water.

This months Goddess Provisions Box is centered around water. Goddess Provisions is around $30-35 a month.

This months mantra:

“I allow transformation to flow through me with grace.”

I love it! Now, for the contents of the box.

Mazi Turkish Towel $20

We all know what a towel is for. The size of this towel is a bit bigger than a hand towel. I think it will be perfect to dry my hair. My hair is pretty wavy with some curls, it gets really frizzy and regular towels don’t help it.

I got the one The is black and gray tie dye. There were two other options, but I got the one I wanted!

House Of Intuition Bath Salts $8

Sadly, I do not have a bath tub. Just a standing shower. I will be sending this to my little sister in a care package. I do think this is a nice little extra to throw in a gift to someone.

I am currently looking for an apartment, a bath tub is one of my requirements.

Love By Luna Nail Polish “Scorpio” $18

This shade is a dark blue/green with glitter. I can not wait to get it on my nails! It is infused with obsidian and is meant to be worn during times of introspection and healing.

Shanti Bar Spirulina Bar $3

I love getting snacks in this box. Check out my snap chat or Instagram soon to see what Myself or Coty thought of this bar!

Coal Miners Daughter Sea Salt Spray $12.50

I used sea salt spray for the first time while I was in Mexico and I love how it made my hair look. I am going to have to give this one a go! Oh, it smells really good by the way.

Art Naturals Konjac Sponges $10

I already have this set and am currently using the white one. I am really liking it, so I am happy to have gotten more.

Sodalite $5

Sodalite promotes peace and tranquility during murky waters. Carry it to remind your self to trust your instincts and feel a deeper connection to your intuition.

I think I am going to start carrying this stone with me on nights out. We are in the St.Louis area. For the most part it is not as bad as people make it seem, but you can never be too safe!

I love this box!! Every month it inspires me. If you enjoy crystals and believe in their power and the true inspiration and power of Mother Nature, like I do, than you NEED this subscription. Honestly, it has been a great tool in helping me grow my beliefs and knowledge.

What is one product you want to see me review? I am really needing ideas.

BeRad Cosmetics | Cruelty Free/ Vegan Faux Mink Lash & Natural Adhesive Remover.

First, let me start off by saying how thankful I am for this package. I rarely buy lashes, because I never use them. Now, I am stocked up for a while!

About the brand:

Be Rad Cosmetics is all about living your life as fully and consciously as possible.”

Be Rad is a cruelty free, vegan, and mindful beauty brand. Who, if I do say so myself, makes so stunning lashes.

Each pair is $20 and there are 4 different styles. My favorite is “Boss Babe All Day.”

Here they are on my eyes here!

And here!

You can purchase them, and the three other last styles, Here.

The lashes are easy to apply, keep in mind I rarely wear lashes. (Thank god there was some duo lash glue in the package!!)

The band isn’t too wide, but it isn’t too thin either.

Is $20 steep? I think so ( if it wasn’t for their other products) But, compared to similar products it is on par as far as price goes.

With the next Be Rad product we will be discussing, these lashes will last ages.

The Lash Adhesive Remover

Be Rad came out with a NATURAL lash adhesive remover!

It cost $25 and comes with 2-10mL bottles. One of the wash the second the rinse.

This may seem like a small amount of product, however, you only need one-two sprays of each!

The remover is made with essential oils that are plant based. Completely free of harsh toxins and chemicals.

Before

As you can see, there is a ton of build up on my lashes.

So first I sprayed them with the wash. The let it sit for 4 minuets.

Then I peeled the Adhesive off with tweezers. It came off the first lash super easy. Not so much the second.

Once I got the adhesive off, I sprayed it with the rinse, the them sit for a bit, then stored them away!

After

All that build up is gone.

I will be honest it took a bit on the second lash. But, it did come off.

If I wore lashes more often this is 100% a system I would repurchase.

Final thoughts?

I love the lashes, when I wear them these will definitely be my go to lashes!

The adhesive remover is a fantastic idea, and I will definitely use it. If I get more in to lashes I will purchase it once I run out. You can get it Here, for your self!

I am very much so looking forward to see what Be Rad has in store for the future. They are a cruelty free, vegan, and mindful brand. What isn’t to fall in love with?

Fortune Cookie Soap OTM June ‘18| 80’s

Today has just been, well, the worst. So I decided to finally open up my Fortune Cookie Soap of the month Box for June.

I absolutely love Soap. I always have. Apparently when I was younger I would ask to go smell soap instead of look at toys.

FCS is a cruelty free brand and all their items are made in Oklahoma, USA. I believe I pay around $35 a month for this box including shipping. I live in Missouri for reference.

This months theme is the 80’s. Let’s dig in!

Billie Jean Perfume Oil $7.99

“Mandarin zest, birch wood, and vanilla.”

The scent of Billie Jean is warm with citrusy under notes. I actually really enjoy it. I have a few other FCS perfume oils and they all last a very long time.

“Danger Zone” It’s a Doodie! Toilet spray $9.99

“Peach Melba, sugar musk, Black Cherry.”

More of FCS’s version of poo-poury!!! We love the other one I received. This one has a nice scent to it as well.

Permed and Teased Argon Hair Shine Serum $8.99

Sweet Pea and a base note of nectarine “

I can always use a good hair oil. I have frizzy, wavy, and damaged hair. I am always happy to try a new one. Especially one that smells so good!

Life is Delicious Lip Scrub $9.99

“Strawberries “

I will be honest, I am not big on the taste of strawberries. But I did test this product out so I think I am going to see if my mom wants it.

For reference it is not as harsh as the Lush lip scrubs, and also more moisturizing. It would be perfect if it wasn’t strawberry flavored.

Mixtape Glowtion $14.99

“Watermelon, light white floras, coconut”

I have tried this Glowtion a few times already. I love it! It smells fantastic and makes my arms and legs look so good. It has a slight tan tint to it as well as some shimmer. It is the perfect product for summer.

FCS Vice Cooling Aloe Mist $9.99

“Mojitos, sugared papaya, casaba melon”

This aloe mist is meant to cook you down after a day in the sun. Or just feeling super hot in general. This is another product I have already tried. I love it, another great edition to your summer product arsenal.

Totally Rad Facial Cleansing Oil $16.99

Bartlett pears, pink grapefruit, pink sugar”

Always up for a facial cleanser. This is one is packed with vitamin E,A,C and D. Sounds like a great way to fight bacteria to me.

There is only one product this month I won’t be using. Everything else I am already loving or very excited to try. Another Of The Month well worth the money. I am excited to see what next month brings!

Which products are you curious to see reviewed?

Veíse | Clean Skincare

Fun fact of the day. I am running out of things to read. What are you favorite books?

Now, for the actual reason you are here. CLEAN SKINCARE!

Veíse is a beauty brand committed to empowering women, never testing on animals, and using only clean ingredients. 1% of ALL of their sales go to helping further the education of women in impoverished areas. What an amazing mission.

It is so so important that we are smart consumers and support companies with strong ethics and quality products. You can see that their ethics are FANTASTIC. Here’s what I think of the products I got to try.

Hydrating Face Wash $24 5.2Oz

The packaging is a frosted glass bottle with a pretty pink label and a black pump. Thank god for pumps!

The ingredients in this face wash are so easy to find and so easy to understand. “Apple cider vinegar, geranium raw honey, and virgin marula. How clear is that?! I know I feel 100000 times better when I know exactly what is going in and on my body.

But does it work? Yes! My face feels clean, fresh, and soft after each use. I’m addicted. And it’s great for all skin types.

You can get addicted too, get it here.

Dream Serum $38 0.5 Fl.Oz

The packaging is again frosted glass and there is a pump to dispense the product.

Let’s touch the main concern right off the bat. That is a lot of money, for a little product. But, that little bit packs a ton of punch.

The serum contains Hyaluronic Acid, Kojic Acid, vitamin C, and Lactobacillus.

The purpose of this product is to fight acne and fade scaring.

I have a ton of acne and have a lot of scarring. The two weeks that I have been using this product I have had a better complexion than I have in ages. I plan on doing a more in-depth post, that will really show off the progress.

I don’t like spending money, but this is a product I don’t think I can live with out.

See the magic for your self, here.

I want to try more from Veíse so bad! I am in love with both of the products I have tried from them. I know for a fact I will repurchase!

Have you tried any Veíse products?

BoxyCharm June 2018| Caribbean Queen

Fun fact, I am 22 years old and don’t have a drivers license. I am terrified of driving. I am taking the test tomorrow, so please send me good vibes!

Now for the thing you actually care about. The June 2018 BoxyCharm! BoxyCharm retails for $21 a month. You get 5-6 deluxe to full size beauty and makeup items, usually at Sephora level prices.

Alamar Reina Del Caribe $28

I saw this Palette on Kathleen Lights YouTube channel, her very good friend/makeup artist developed it. The shades are STUNNING. It is a new cruelty free brand, so I planned to purchase the palette anyway. So, I essentially just saved $7 plus shipping on the palette AND got five other products for free!

Isn’t it gorgeous!? The shades and the palette!!

Here is the first row swatched. Keep an eye out for a review. I am so excited to play with these shadows!!

Battington Monroe Silk Lashes $28

I am not going to say much about these. I am not going to use them sense they are made with 100% silk. They look pretty but, I wouldn’t consider them cruelty free. I am going to pass these along to my best friend.

Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream $10

Fun fact number two of the post, the only non vegan Sol De Janeiro product is their lip products. I have tried samples of the insanely hyped up Bum Bum Cream, but not enough to make an opinion. Be on the look out for an update, I’m intrigued.

Luxie 3 Piece Flawless Complexion Set $42

This set contains a tapered highlight brush, a precision foundation brush, and a duo fiber face brush.

Luxie brushes are by far my favorite, so I love getting them in boxes. They are very soft, and the handle are cute. I will get a ton of use out of these.

Jonteblu Waterproof Eyeliner “Dark Brown” $5

I can’t find anything about this brand being cruelty free. I am just going to pass it along if I can’t find any info on it.

I hope it is CF. It has rich pigmentation and is very soft.

Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick “Verona” $21

I really enjoy Ofras lipstick Formula. Always a welcome edition to a BC in my eyes.

This shade is right up my alley, I’m sure y’all will be seeing it on my lips a ton.

I am sure y’all already know. This months Box was 100% worth it! The palette, lipstick, brushes, and Bum Bum Cream are all cruelty free and I am excited to play with them. The other two items are easy to just pass along.

Which one of these products would you like to see reviewed? Come below!
