Two years ago I decided to go cruelty-free with all my cosmetics and skincare. It was an amazing move that made me feel happier knowing that I was making a difference, even if it was small!
Ever since then I have been researching brands that are cruelty-free and unfortunately, they are not as common as one would assume (although this is slowly changing).
When I stumbled upon the Good Green Box subscription service I knew I had to give it a try. Every month a box full of beauty, skincare, haircare and nailcare samples (and one or two full sized). The products are carefully chosen to ensure they are either natural, organic, vegan or cruelty-free.
I received the January box which contained 5 samples and 2 full sized products.
Karen Murrell Lipstick in Carnation Mist
All natural ingredients in a beautiful natural pink colour that glides on smoothly. I love this colour, it’s a natural pink which gives me just a hint of colour.
Pure Deo Co. Natural Deodorant
This is my favourite, the organic coconut oil/shea butter formula moisturises and bicarb soda neutralises odour.
Fresh Therapies Natural Nail Polish Remover Wipes
These are another favourite. The wipes remove everything and don’t leave that horrible feeling like an acetone based remover does. The only thing that could make these better, would be if the wipes were bio-degradable
The Divine Company Certified Organic Gradual Tan Natural Bronzer
I haven’t tried this one yet but I am keen to. The bronzer sample promises to deliver a beautiful bronze glow while moisturising skin with Coconut oil, Aloe Vera and Shea Butter.
Be Genki Body Oils
This one is a beautiful hydrating oil that sinks right into my skin and is 100% organic.
Baimeni Sweet Australian Almond Oil Cleanser
I have never tried an oil based cleanser, so I am interested in trying this one! The oil contains vitamin A, B and E to help keep the skin supple and plump.
All the products are of generous sample sizes and if you love them you can purchase them (usually with a sneaky discount code!)
I will soon be receiving my second Good Green Box, so keep an eye on my Instagram to see what’s inside!
And if you follow Good Green Box on facebook, you may see a sneaky code to get your first box for $10!
