The Vegan Kind - Beauty Box 3

Last month I was excited to receive my first TVK Beauty Box. I have enjoyed receiving the monthly TVK lifestyle box so much I thought it was time to sign myself up to the beauty box too! If they were both monthly I probably wouldn't have been able to justify the expenditure but the fact that the beauty box is only once every 3 months makes it so much easier. 

I've noticed a much bigger delay in my review of this box than the lifestyle one because the food items within the lifestyle box tend to get demolished pretty quickly! But when it comes to cosmetics I think you do have to trial them out for a good couple of weeks before you can form an opinion and it can prove trickier introducing new products like these into your daily routine.

So i'm just going to do a little run down of what was included in this box, links of where you can purchase them from and my thoughts on each product.

Sophyto Total Protection Serum - So far I have only used this serum a few times so its difficult to offer my full and final verdict. I do however really like how it helps to protect you against sun damage and the fact that it helps with ageing skin. Now I am approaching my mid 30's I am becoming more interested in the ageing skin ranges and i'd like to do what I can to repair any damage and help my skin feel brighter. I am pleased to say that on the days where I have used it I have certainly felt more radiant! However, I have to say initially I am not a fan of the scent which is fruity but reminds me of honey! Also after applying my skin feels a little sticky which I am also not quite sure about yet.  But I do think I need to use this product for longer before I can really offer my full opinion on it.

Crazy Rumours Hibiskiss Tinted Lip Balm - This is the first Crazy Rumours product i've ever had the pleasure of trying and I absolutely love it! It's proved to be the perfect little addition to my handbag. I hate having dry or bare lips and am always reapplying lippy throughout the day but I am finding that this is a really good little product which helps to keep my lips soft yet with a hint of pearly colour too which is perfect for when i'm busy working. I will definitely be buying again!

Greenfrog Botanic Geranium & Peppermint Body Wash - I've seen the Green Frog products advertised quite a bit recently so I was really happy to see it included in this box. I've been using it as my daily body wash in the shower and am really enjoying it's refreshing and awakening scent! It's quite different to the last body wash I was using (Jason) as it doesn't seem to foam up much but instead it gives you a very silky soft covering. Personally I prefer more fruity scents so I would be keen to try their other Neroli & Lime body wash too.

The Wild Witchery Gold Highlighter - Wow.....this little golden highlighter stick is just amazing! It has definitely been my fave item from this box and such an unexpected little addition and a completely unheard of brand for myself. I started to use this a couple of weeks ago when my other highlighter ran out and firstly I couldn't get over the scent! It smells so chocolatey and amazing - good enough to eat! I add it to both my brow and cheek bones and it has given me an amazing glow that has just so happened to work extremely well with my (fading fast) Miami tan. I love it! I also love how compact and easy to use it is and again it fits very nicely into my handbag.

Zk'in Skincare Deluxe Sample Pack - Another new brand for me and not one that I haven't come across before. Within this sample pack was included a Relief Moisturiser, a Calming Cream Cleanser, a Line Soothing Serum and a Brightening & Hydrating Masque. I really enjoyed sampling all of these but I would have to say my favourite was the cleanser as it done a really good job of removing my make up and leaving my skin feeling so soft after use. I'm really happy TVK have introduced me to this new brand!

I can't believe that I have only paid £18.15 (inc postage) for this box and everything inside if purchased separately would have cost me well over £40! In my point of view this is well worth it and the fact that I am now being introduced to so many vegan and cruelty free cosmetics brands that I would have potentially never heard of before is amazing. I am one happy customer!
