bilou Gentle Cream Foam Cotton Candy (RRP £3.99) is a creamy foam body lotion with shea butter, almond oil and avocado oil. I’ve never tried foam lotion before, but as a fan of foam soaps, I knew I’d like this. At first, it feels a little bit odd rubbing foam all over your skin – like using shaving cream with no intention of washing it off – but the foam consistency makes the lotion easy to apply lightly and evenly. This also smells like a sweets shop! I can imagine some people might not like the intensely sugary smell it gives your skin, but I enjoyed the whimsy of it. The can is cute and classy too, made from 100% recycled material.
Medusa’s Makeup Sugar Daddy Lipstick (RRP $12.00) is a cruelty-free and vegan blend of natural waxes, colour, and pigment.
This is a great lipstick. It’s creamy and rich without being sticky or cakey. The nude shade matches and enhances my natural lip colour perfectly.
Superdrug Official B. Pure Micellar Water 100ml (RRP £1.89) is a gentle formula designed for twice daily use to cleanse, tone and refresh skin. It can be difficult to judge how well a product like this works, and I didn’t see a noticeable difference in my skin in a few days of testing. However, it was also very easy on my skin and didn’t lead to any redness or blemishes, which is something I often suffer when trying a new toner. At such a reasonable price, this is worth a try particularly if you have sensitive skin.
Botanical Charcoal Superfood Mattifying Face Mask 30ml (RRP £14.90) contains activated charcoal powder to cleanse and exfoliate, and shea butter to smooth skin. Designed for use 2-3 times a week, for 5-10 minutes at a time, it is a quick addition to a beauty routine. I really liked this, my skin felt clean and soft after treatment, with no irritation. The mask has a tiny bit of grit from the charcoal, but is a pleasant consistency and not too heavy. It also doesn’t have a discernable scent, which I think is ideal for a product that you are leaving on your face for up to 10 minutes at a time when a strong fragrance can be unpleasant. Like with other dr botanicals products, I like the sleek packaging, but I can’t figure out why it is called ‘Cr’ – with activated charcoal as the primary ingredient, you’d think it would be called ‘C’.
Bellapierre Mineral Shimmer Glow Roll On (RRP £14.99) is a mineral highlighter in a convenient roller form for easy application with no clumping. I’ve used other Bellapierre shimmer products in the past and love the subtle glow it gives my skin. The roll-on applicator is a major bonus, it’s perfect for highlighting the right areas and it’s easy to handle (i.e., there’s no threat of accidentally tipping over a pot of shimmer, which has been known to happen).
Once again, I loved the mix of products in The Vegan Kind Beauty Box. Everything is top quality and I’ll use each product regularly. I highly recommend this subscription box for vegans and non-vegans alike.
