This months theme is “A Gorumet Fall” and included a list of each product and sample included, I love the little information card included it’s pretty!

The Treats

Vegan Eye Pencil Full Size $29 Value

This liner is handcrafted individually with cold pressed plant waxes and specially formulated natural pigment blends.

A lot of work goes into making this and when I tried this out on my eyelid and under eye, it goes on smoothly and lasted about 6 hours before I saw it smudge a little, it is all natural and I like to be conscious about what I put near my eyes, love this!

Plumping Lip Gloss Full Size $18 Value

This gloss has a spicy and tingling sensation after it’s applied and enhances the natural color and shape of your lips.  This works by increasing circulation with a blend of essential oils such as cinnamon and orange.

This did have a little tingly sensation, I didn’t notice my lips instantly plumping but after a few minutes they looked a little fuller which I am guessing this is how it’s supposed to work, great lip gloss, not sticky and the color is pretty.

Organic Keratin Treatment $10 Value

I’m not sure if this is the conditioner or just a treatment but I tried it out a few days ago after towel drying my hair, it smells amazing and didn’t leave my hair feeling greasy.

Vanilla Mint Shampoo $10 Value

This is a delicous “Naked” shampoo with pure herbal infusions of coffee, chocolate and yucca to protect hair from further UV damage.  It is also packed with proteins to relieve stressed hair!

I really like the smell of this shampoo, the mint left my hair and skin feeling fresh, I did have to use most of the bottle since I have really long hair and the formula is thin but it is definitely a treat I could get used to once in a while.

Clarifying Serum $3 Value

This helps moisturize and heal blemishes and reduce future breakouts.

This soaked into my skin really well, I can’t really comment on the results since it was just a sample but I would love to see a larger sized one in the future.

Natural Eye Shadow $4 Value

This is a mineral eye shadow and works great wet or dry.

I’m not sure if this is the shimmer one or the matte one but it did have a little shimmer to it and has a great pigment.

This box had a total value of $74, I love the packaging and I love getting full sized products.  The samples were also great to try out and I was introduced to lots of new natural products.

If you are vegan or just love to help keep the environment a friendly place I would totally recommend this box, the products are beautiful and the everything is put together very well!
