TheVeganKind Beauty Box

Friday, July 25, 2014

The Vegan Kind have now launched their very first and one off beauty box and what a box it is.

AH-MA-ZING-LY SOFT. This just proves to me, more and more that we do not need to have bristles made from fur. Synthetic can be just as soft and work just as good. I honestly wish I could brush you all with this to show you. It has a design that reminds me of a luxurious paint brush. Having a handle that's easy to grip is important and this cone shaped handle gives me a nice grip due to the circumference.
It's probably not as dense as a brush used for foundation so it wouldn't be good to use for that, probably stick to blending out cream / mousse products & possibly your primer.
(look at this set from Furless ⇆ Must Have Brush Set)

The make-up brand of co-founders Kimberly Wyatt (Pussycat Dolls) & Laura McComiskie. Giving an overall look at the brand it's approved by BUAV and PETA and aren't badly priced in hindsight. There's two eyeshadows from two different collections, Adobe Brick (Burning Spirit Collection - Shimmery bronze, brown) & Mississippi Mud (Earthy Princess Collection - Matt brown), it's a brand I would like to see more of and it'll be one I will feature in a future FOTD.

I've not tested this cleansing water yet as I'm already testing out skincare but this divine smelling cleansing water is said to be a alternative to face wipes which a lot of us are anti towards. It's an easy way to remove make-up and cleanse the skin. Contains spring water, orange blossom water, coconut oil, polysorbate 20, sodium benzoate & potassium sorbate and lime essential oil.

I've got a few Inika products already and there great for vegans and they are certified organic. I find this gives me a nice smudge as the pencil isn't hard or drying. Doesn't last as long on the waterline as I'd like and I've always found it's a softer shade of black.

This is made from raw cocoa butter and pure plant essential oils, all you have to do is break off a piece and add to running water. Due to the oils it's an oily product and good for those with dry skin for moisturising. I found it also softened my bath water and for me in a hard water area, it's very welcome - just be careful while getting out the bath.

This box values at £34.00, you get a saving of £19 from the cost of this box. What an amazing brush, there's definitely some stand-outs for me with this box, the brush being one of the major ones.

If you follow me on Instagram, you would of seen this look from the weekend or even the Oxygenetix review, I added my face for y'all. I decided to ditch the black liner and try out some more of these Inglot AMC Liners that I picked up at IMATS last month.
-Can't believe it's been nearly a month already, waaaah!

TheVeganKind #9

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

I haven't reviewed my last two The Vegan Kind boxes, you may of realised I wasn't really blogging but now I'm back on track, I'm sharing with you the TVK9 box, whaaat, insane that it's been so long already.

Pure hazelnut chocolate bar, yum. This was my favourite out of the box if I'm honest. Nut heaven for me and perfect, gluten free chocolate - absolutely divine.

From the creator of the #veganhour Twitter hashtag, this is Anne-Marie the founder of Heavenly Organics unique product. Shake the tub well beforehand, take a heaped teaspoon for short hair, bit more for longer hair. Then add a bit of water to form a paste and massage into the hair. I tend to part my hair into 4 sections and massage into the roots as when I rinse the hair, it runs down the hair shaft regardless.

The first time I had coconut water was in Jamaica when I was 6 and I didn't favour it and since then I've never touched coconut water. Yet I decided to try this - I gave some to my nan to ask her well known knowledge of how fresh coconut water should taste as this says it's as fresh as you'd get from the coconut and she agreed. She loved it, so 20 years later I tasted it once again and to be honest, it's not so bad. I noticed the last few years coconut water has become the 'new water' to drink.

As soon as I opened this the smell reminded me of those bacon crips, Frazzles. It certainly carries that smoked smell of those and only tastes like coconut once it's been bitten into. Even though I didn't mind the water or even the scent of coconut, I didn't favour these as much.

Here's another gluten free product but this one is free from nuts. You can have this as a cereal bar or even as a snack. It has a chocolate topping - I'm never too much of a fan of cereal bars.

I'm a juicing fan, it's the best way my body finds to boosts weight loss. Wheatgrass shots I've heard about for quite a while, it's loved by many. I've personally never tried it and even had to find a way to include Kale within my juicing (that I now love) so I'm looking forward to trying this and seeing if Wheatgrass will become a favourite for me. Known to be a powerful detoxifier and protect the heart and liver, it can help endurance during exercise a help build red blood cells, boosting your immune system and stimulate your thyroid glands.

All in all not a bad box, once again with a variation of snacks and a beauty product. I'm hoping one day they may find an alternative for cheese, that'll put me on my Vegan course so easy if that could happen. Plus it helped me to realise, coconut water isn't that bad after all.

What do you think of this box?
