Kinder Beauty Box is a new vegan and cruelty-free beauty box that sends makeup, hair care, skincare, and accessories! Each box will have a value of $65+ and a portion of sales will go to animal rights and environmental causes. The box was compassionately curated by Daniella Monet (from Nickelodeon’s Victorious) and Evanna Lynch (Harry Potter’s Luna Lovegood). All Kinder Beauty Box products are guaranteed to be 100% vegan and cruelty-free. Kinder Beauty Box is $24.99 a month, but the price drops to $19.95 a box when you sign up for 12 boxes.

The presentation was simple, with a card on top and shredded paper squiggles to keep everything cushioned.
The info card had a golden letters.
The inside of the card had each item listed along with the suggested retail price, a website for more info, and a brief description.
Everything in the February 2019 box!
Eldora False Eyelashes (£7, about $9 USD) First off we have some false lashes! I have never worn lashes before but both of my daughters wear them, one for dance team and the other for every day!
The back had some brief instructions and the ingredients in the lash adhesive.
Lashes can be trimmed to your desired length.
These vegan-friendly lashes are made of human hair!
DERMA-E Essentials Nourishing Rose Cleansing Oil ($2.25) I love cleansing oils and use them as a first step to remove makeup before bed. I rubbed some of this over my face and then wiped it off with a warm washcloth. It has a very light scent of roses, nothing overwhelming. The jojoba oil may help sooth skin while argan oil provides antioxidants.
Delia Organics Skin Detox Rehab Mask with French Pink Clay and Papaya Extract ($16.99) Give tired skin a boost with this mask that enhances radiance while exfoliating.
It’s a loose powder so you can mix it up fresh with the liquid of your choice, depending on your skin’s needs.
Two kinds of clay, grapeseed extract, and papaya extract are the only ingredients and you can add water, hydrosol, or even yogurt (if you are not against dairy). Mix a teaspoon or so of the dry mask with the liquid in a dish until you get your desired consistency, then apply to clean skin. Let dry and then rinse. I prefer to rinse in the shower to keep the mess to a minimum. I haven’t tried this yet, my sensitive skin isn’t a fan of clay, but I like that the ingredients are all-natural.
Kat Von D Beauty Tattoo Liner ($20) Ohh, I love this eyeliner! The shade is called Trooper and is described as “satin black”, but there is also a brown-black shade available online.
I was able to get a very fine line and was able to place it precisely where I needed it to go.
The brush tip looks like an artist’s brush. I wasn’t a fan of liquid liner until I discovered this brand.
Ambreesh Cosmetics 24 Karat Lips Liquid Lipstick ($28) Ambreesh is a brand I’ve never heard of, and I love to discover new brands! Isn’t the container adorable?
The shade I receive is called “Hey Doll!” and is described as a blue tone/nude pink.
The brush head is a classic doe foot applicator for precise application. It dried quickly and stayed on for quite a while. I saw barely a mark on my tea mug when I sipped from it after applying the lippie. The color wasn’t what I would normally choose and dried to an opaque finish. I will mix it with a bit of a darker, redder color to get my perfect shade. I find that when I mix another lip color with a long lasting product like this they work well together.
Here are swatches of the lip product (before it was fully dry) and the eye liner. I wiped them off right away and then went over it with a washcloth and here it is, 12 hours later and there is still a mark from the lip color on my arm (although the one on my lips faded long ago).
The February Kinder Beauty Box was my very first box from them, and only the second box from this new subscription company. I liked the variety of items sent and while the lashes are not something I’ve ever worn, I guess I could use them for a special occasion (although my daughters will probably get to them first). The cleanser will go into my travel bag and the mask will get repurposed as an exfoliator, but I am very happy with the lip product and absolutely adore the eyeliner. The value for the February box was around $76.24, well over the promised $65+ value! I look forward to seeing what comes in future boxes and would love to see if body care items will be included or if this subscription will focus on the neck up!
