I enjoyed the products in the first The Vegan Kind beauty box I’d received last time so I thought I’d also review the next box I received. Quickly arriving through the post, which arrived only TWO days after the email said the boxes had been sent, the range of products within this box was interesting, the “Summer Pamper Edition: as it has been labelled.
Again, the leaflet accompanying the box states it’s overall value of items to be £39+ (approx £39.93 to be exact, excluding once item as it is a sample size.). Again, six items are supplied:
- Vitamasques Rose Gold Sheet Mask (RRP £5.99)
- Laponie of Scandinavia Skincare Toner. 50ml (£24.00)
- Derma V10 Tea Tree and Peppermint Foot Treatment (RRP £1.00)
- Kierin NYC Sunday Brunch Deluxe Perfume Sample (the price of full size £65)
- BAMBeautiful Conditioning Masque. 50ml (RRP £4.95)
- Seren London Cheek Rouge. (RRP £3.99)
Straight away I tried the Derma V10 Foot Treatment! The leaflet mentions it contained Vitamin E to “deeply moisturise the skin, help soothe and soften, dry, rough and cracked heels”. I’ve been fortunate with good skin on my feet but they still deserve a pampering!
The booties you get come joined together which you have to cut open to slide them over each foot and secure with a sticky part on the boot. I was expecting, whilst wearing the boot, to find the product too slippery to walk around in them on hard flooring but I was surprised.
Aside from the initial coolness of the cream, I forgot after a while I had them on! When I did eventually remove the booties and the clean off the excess (which the skin absorbed quickly) my feet did feel considerably smoother and the smell was gorgeous!
Next up, I tried the Vitamasques Rose Gold Sheet Mask. Now, being a student I wouldn’t spend the asking price of this for a facemask (RRP £5.99)! Maybe I would for the foot pack which, as someone who does a lot of walking in hiking boots, was a reasonable price I thought (RRP £1.00), but the face mask… hmm.
An “Ultra-thin, moisturising sheet mask with real gold leaf… for dry, sensitive skin… the gold acts as an anti-inflammatory and Rose acts to soothe redness” … I’m no stranger to sensitive skin with a lot of redness so was looking forward to using this.
Straight out of the packet it smelled lovely and there was a lot of moisturiser on the mask. It was quick and easy to apply, cool to the touch and it settled well on my face. I enjoyed the relaxing feel to this mask and my skin certainly felt smoother and fresher afterwards. When I removed the mask there was a lot of moisture still on my skin and in the packet – I felt as if I could use the mask again, there was a lot still on it! Definitely reuse more than once! Did it do anything for the redness? Sadly, no. This might be one product I would skip purchasing.
Next up, the interestingly named “Sunday Brunch“ by KIERIN NYC. Made with unusual ingredients such as Italian Bergamot and Earl Grey Tea, this perfume suggests a scent of “a celebratory mood… memories of a life well lived… inspired by the energetic vibes of an urban lifestyle” whilst being cruelty free.
I must say I loved the smell! So much so that I’m contemplating this being my next scent when my other perfume bottle runs out! The smell stayed on me all day and was complimented by several people. I like bold smells and this one is BOLD.
I haven’t gotten around to using the BAMBeautiful Condition Masque just yet, nor the Seren Cheek Rouge but I have used the Laponie of Scandinavia Skincare Toner as a quick pick-me-up during the day and after cleansing. Instantly refreshing and hydrating, this “smoothing sea kelp and calming liquorice root” feels lovely on the skin and doesn’t leave any sticky sensation. Easy to rub in and left the skin a bit tingly I will give this product a go over a longer period to test to toning effects. A good quality product I thought.
Overall, I’m impressed with the choice of products in this box. Two single-use items, one small item and three long use items are all good value for the box price… and products that will last a while (or at least until the next box arrives through the post!). Good job, The Vegan Kind.
Again, from sales of the Beauty Box, 20p is donated to Animal-Free Research UK who are aiming to assist in the eradication of using animals in medical research.
