Beauty Box – Cruelty Free Box 2018

I ordered this one right after I ordered the Canada Box 2018. I look for cruelty free products so I figured this would be a good one to try out.

This box I paid $28.00 CAD for.

MaskerAide All Eyes On Me. One pair of eye gel patches that are suppose to brighten and hydrate. I 100% plan on trying these. Having a 6 month old does not make for beauty sleep ha-ha.

Amike Perk Up Dry Shampoo. I am going to see if my Mother wants to try this out. I have never used dry shampoo. If she does not I might ask my Aunt.

*Update: My Mother is in love with this product. I cannot really say more than that but I know how to figure out where we can purchase it.

The Beauty Crop Fabulous Flocking Lashes Mascara. This packaging is adorable. I am up for trying out a new mascara at this point. I have not found one that I am in love with yet.

Skin&Co Roma Truffle Therapy Face Toner. I am still using the toner I received from Medusa’s Make Up. I was recently looking at other brands to try out. I am happy to be able to try this.

Living Libations Open Sky Eye Serum. Serum for tired eyes, that is suppose to freshen and tone under the eyes. I am going to give my Mother the option of trying this if she wants. If not I am more then willing to.

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer. I originally started using this primer. It is not bad and it does do its job. I just wanted to switch it up and see what else was out there. I am not a fan of the almost silicon feel it leaves on the skin. It just makes me feel that I am completely cutting off my skin from breathing.

Delectable Triple Moisture Body Lotion in Coconut and Cream. I just reviewed this on the Canada Box 2018. The formula is to thin for my liking but it smells like it is suppose to. This one I am giving to my Mother.

I had a choice between this product or the Ultra Nourishing Hand Cream in Sweet Mint and Cream. Which I received in a Luxebox. I was not a fan of the smell and I know my Mother would not use it.

Nude by Nature Perfecting Primer. This is suppose to create a luminous base for make up application. I am excited for this as I have repeat primers which does not help if I am looking to try something new.

The Body Shop Drops of Youth. This is a concentrate serum that enhances the surface skin condition. I am going to offer this to my Mother. I know she is looking to try other skin products. If not I will be more than happy to try it out. I am revamping my skin routine.

Beauty Box – Canada Box 2018

I get notifications about these boxes all the time. Until now though there was never enough in them that interested me. I opted to purchase this particular one because they are Canadian products and between my mother and I, they would all get sampled.

I paid $29.12 CAD for this box. I am hoping I find some winners in here!

LASPA Moisturizing Mineral Sunscreen. I usually use sunscreen religiously during the summer. I have a sun sensitivity so it does not take much for me to regret trying to get that precious vitamin D. I will be using this and I do not see myself having a reaction to it as it is fragrance free. This is a sample sample though. I truly will not be able to make a real judgement call on it.

Lovacado Extra Virgin Avocado Oil. This one is not at the top of my list to try. I mean it is an oil that you massage into your skin. I will see if my Mother wants to give it a shot.

Marc Anthony Hydrating Coconut Oil and Shea Butter. This I will be passing along to my Mother. With curly hair this is not a product I want to be putting in it. It is awesome this is made in Canada though.

*update: My Mother said this exploded so she just tossed it.

Evio Green Tea Primer. I received one of these in a a past Little Life Box. I remember being so excited to try it out. It is not my most favourite and I will not be going out and purchasing it. It also is not the worst out there so I have no problem using it.

Delectable Triple Moisture Body Lotion in the flavour Coconut and Cream. This does not have a strong smell and it does smell like it is suppose too. This is a very thin formula, while it does absorb well I end up using way to much. I did not have a reaction to it though. I am using it as a hand cream instead.

BeautySoClean Cosmetic Sanitizer Wipes. I have high hopes for this one. I am going to put a couple in my purse and store a couple at the office. I would not want to waste using them at home.

Nova Scotia Fisherman Forest Charcoal Soap. It smells very masculine and woodsy. Which means it smells pretty good. I did give it to Mister though. I do not use bar soap. It is much to drying.

Barefoot Venus Green Tea Body Wash. I have not tried this. Mostly because I forgot it was in the tube.

*Update: the smell is subtle and enjoyable. I do not find it drying but I will say that it is also not the most moisturizing either. I moisturize after washing though so it’s not a biggie.

Living Libations True Blue Spirulina Shampoo and Conditioner. I am offering these to my Mother first. These are suppose to be a clearing and renewing formulas.

We have another Cake product, this is Heavy Cream Intensely Smoothing Body Butter Balm. It has a bit of a stronger smell to it and the formula is thicker. I have not tried it yet but I have every intention to soon!
