…with Vegan Cuts September beauty box! This month's box is filled with a variety of refreshing, wonderful products to incorporate into your beauty regime. Fall may not be the official start of a new year but there’s something about that autumn air that makes me yearn for a change. And what better way to start the “new” year off right than with new beauty products! Take a peek into the September 2015 Vegan Cuts beauty box! :)
September 2015 Vegan Cuts Beauty Box
♥Au Naturale Eye Shadow- I received the color “Addiction” which is a deep yet vibrant olive green…perfect to complement the blue skies of fall or a new fall outfit ;). This eye shadow glides very easily over the lids and stays put without being thick. It also blended very easily with powder eye shadows, which was a happy surprise. I have found that some other cream eye shadows are too thick and create a weird, goopy texture on your lid; not making it friendly to combine it with powder eye shadows or even certain eyeliners for that matter. I love this color because it brings out the gold flecks in my brown eyes and it is perfect to wear day or night.
♥Derma E Hydrating Night Cream- With another birthday not too far away, I was happy to receive this night cream that is supposed to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while plumping the skin…shoo wrinkles, don’t bother me! I had used a daytime moisturizer by this same company, which I loved so I had a feeling this night cream would be as equally awesome. It has a soft hand feel and is accompanied by a light, refreshing smell. You don’t need to use a lot of it to get full coverage for your face and neck (don’t forget the neck! That’s what my mom taught me). With some night creams I have used in the past, a nice little zit would greet me in the morning. However, with this cream, I luckily had no such visitors when I woke up.
♥Norabloom Botanicals- this delightful little packet is filled with three cotton pads soaked in organic rosewater, organic witch hazel and radish root. As soon as I tore open the packet, the air was filled with a refreshing and invigorating scent. I applied one of the cotton pads to my face and even did a quick swipe around my neck, chest and arms. It works perfectly to calm and cool the skin, while providing a mood-boosting scent!
♥Being Lava Terra Clay
- I was excited to see this clay mask in the box because I have been on a clay kick since discovering Black Magic from the Fanciful Fox, which you can read about on my previous blog post here: http://threadsforlove.com/the-good-kind-of-black-magic/
. You can use this black clay as a mask or a scrub cleanser. The first time I used it was as a scrub cleanser, which worked great. It’s very fine so that makes it easier to mix with water and wash the grime away. I then used it as a mask, which delighted my fiancé when I emerged from the bathroom looking like a masked burglar. If used as a mask, it says to leave it on until it dries, which doesn’t take very long, only a few minutes. After washing off my cat burglar face, I felt that my skin looked refreshed and bright. My skin also felt very smooth and moisturized.
♥Enfusia Bath Bomb- Being a bride-to-be could be a little a lot stressful so this bath bomb was greeted with open, tired arms. This bath bomb was aaamazing… as soon as I dropped it in the warm bath, it immediately started dissolving, filling the air with a wonderfully relaxing rose scent. There were even pieces of rose petal emerging from the bath bomb. I felt like this bath bomb made the water soft, which I’m assuming was the work of the essential oils. My skin felt so soft when I finally submerged back on dry land. I was happy to say that I stayed in a relaxed state for the remainder of the night. These little gems would be perfect for Christmas gifts! I know, I said it..Christmas! Ah!
♥Aubrey Organics Hairspray- I haven’t done much research into vegan/cruelty free hairsprays since I do not use them frequently so I was thrilled to find this included in the box; one less thing to research! This hairspray contains chia seed oil, which helps prevent that crunchy, prom-like hair. It held my curling iron created waves very well while still giving them a natural look. At the end of the night, my hair brushed out really well, in fact, it even felt softer. It also has a light smell to it unlike those other hairsprays that give you an instant headache.
