Limited Edition Vegan GlossyBox: July 2018

Tuesday, July 03, 2018
If you haven't seen some of my food related posts, particularly my latest recipe post with Magimix in which I made a rather delicious (if I do say so myself) chickpea curry with cashews and garlic cauliflower rice, then you might not know that my diet is mostly vegan and I'm slowly trying to switch to a more vegan lifestyle as well, which includes beauty, body and skincare products. The amazing people over at GlossyBox have created a limited edition vegan box which has a total value of £80!

*GlossyBox Vegan Box (£30 for non-subscribers, £25 for subscribers)
The limited edition vegan GlossyBox contains ten items, seven of which are full sized which is amazing! The other samples which aren't full sized are great sizes for travelling or trialing the product. The brands included in the vegan box include: Original Source, Noughty, So Eco, Tropic, Maria Nila Stockholm, Tints Of Nature, Kat Von D, Dr Organic and Weleda; some of which I've tried before and loved and others which I'm excited to try out.
*Weleda Birch Cellulite Oil (£2.95, 10ml mini)
Let's start with a brand I haven't tried much from, Weleda. The cellulite oil contains apricot, wheat germ and jojoba oils and is designed to smooth, firm and tone the skin which is great for this time of the year. However, I'm not a fan of body oils so I'll give this a miss but I'm sure it will be useful if you like body oils.

*Original Source Lemon and Lime Foaming Shower Gel (£3, 180ml, full size)
Another body product smells equally as nice, actually even nicer, it's a new shower foam from Original Source. I love the Original Source shower gels and this foam version is no different. It feels so refreshing, the scent is so fresh and it cleanses the skin well. It contains 100% natural fragrances and essentials oils and best of all, one bottle should last for up to 35 washes!
*Dr Organic Vitamin E Super Hydrating Cream (£8.49, full sized)
Let's start with a brand I've tried and loved, I used their lavender shampoo a while ago and I need to pick it up again! The moisturiser contains vitamin e, cocoa butter, sweet almond oil, aloe vera and antioxidants so it's sounds perfect for the summer months to nourish sunburnt and sensitive skin. I love the packaging, the scent is pleasant and subtle and it's so moisturising! I have dry skin and so many moisturisers just don't cut it but it's one is fantastic!

*Pure Chimp Match Tea (£4.95, 20g, full sized)
As well as the body, hair, skincare and makeup items included in this vegan box, there is also a food item in the form of a full sized packet of match tea. I love matcha/green tea but I haven't tried it as a powder like this before and to be honest it isn't my favourite; however I'll try it again in another variation.

*So Eco Eye Shading Brush (£5, full sized)
Additionally, there's a makeup brush in the box and if you have seen my beauty sash then you'll know that I have a rather large...collection of makeup brushes. I don't know why but I always need more so another is great especially as its from a brand I've already tried and loved. I love the bamboo handle and rose gold detail. It's such a smooth and soft brush that's great for packing eyeshadow onto the lid.
*Tints Of Nature Hydrate Shampoo (£3.99, 70ml mini)
One of the few mini, sample sizes is a hydrating shampoo from a new to me brand, Tints Of Nature which contains lots of natural and organic ingredients to cleanse, moisturise and soften the hair. It is 100% natural and has such a gorgeous fruity, berry sweet scent that I love! I will definitely be keeping this mini shampoo for a weekended away in August!

*Maria Nila Stockholm Head & Hair Heal Masque (£26.99, full sized)
I received a shampoo and conditioner duo in a previous GlossyBox and loved them so I'm very happy to receive another item from them as not only do they look so pretty in the bathroom but they smell so nice and they're lovely to use. The mask has a general hair care scent, a little goes a long way and it leaves my hair smooth, soft and moisturised as well as detangled. It's crudely free, vegan and I cannot recommend this product/brand enough.
*Kat Von D Tattoo Liner (£6.18, 0.2ml mini)
The most exciting items from the box for me has to be the famous Kat Von D Tattoo Liner which has received nothing but rave reviews. Now I'm don't agree at all with Kat Von D's recent stance on being against vaccines however I do want to try a few of her makeup products. The liner is mini so it's ideal for travelling and it has a fine tip which means that you can get a really fine line. I've only used it once so far but it's fantastic and I think it might be one of my favourite items from the box along with the Dr Organics cream, Maria Nila hair mask, Organic Source shower foam and the So Eco brush....I have quite a few favourites from this box!

*Tropic Skincare Lip Fudge Lip Plumping Conditioner in Rosewood (£12, full sized)
I have seen this brand mentioned on so many blogs but this is the first product of theirs that I've tried and I'm impressed. I have tried another product like this from Tata Harper and the shade is so similar too. The lip plumper has a gorgeous natural deep rose shade that is a my lips but better shades and it's so smooth and hydrating on the lips.
*Noughty To The Rescue Anti-Frizz Serum (£8.99, 75ml)
Last but not least is a product that I'm desperately in need of as my hair is naturally incredibly frizzy and nothing can smooth down or tame the frizz - I basically have Hagrid hair! I love the packaging, it contains a few natural ingredients such as wheat bran extract, sunflower seed extract and argan oil. I've only used it a couple of times but so far so good as it's a smooth serum that has definitely helped to reduce the halo of frizz I always have!

Overall, I'm so happy and grateful that I received the vegan box to review from the lovely people at GlossyBox as it's one of the best subscription boxes I've received, not only in terms of the number of full sized items but also because the range of brands and products is great too. I love so many of the items included especially the hair mask, facial moisturiser, eye liner, shows foam and the makeup brush - all of which I'd recommend. The value of the box is £80 so it's fantastic value for money so get it while you can!

Will you be picking up the vegan Glossybox? Have you tried any of these products or brands?
