LaRitzy Vegan Cruelty-Free Beauty Box – June 2016
This is a bittersweet post to write because LaRitzy recently announced they’ll be ending their monthly curated vegan beauty box subscription and will be soon launching their own line of cruelty-free cosmetics!
But as always, LaRitzy does a fabulous job of curating each month’s box and their June 2016 box did not disappoint!
So I thought I’d continue to share what was inside with you all and if you’re like me and eagerly waiting for news about their new launch, be sure to sign up to their newsletter to get updates, here.
You can also still sign up for their “Mystery Box” where you’ll receive 3 or more products with a total value of over $50 but you only pay a one-time price of $15! Get the details, here.
LaRitzy June 2016 Vegan Beauty Box
“The White” Clay Mask by Josie & Hue ($22)
Lately I’ve been on a serious clay mask kick! I think they work the best for my oily, acne-prone skin type so I was pumped to see a clay mask in this month’s box!
Josie & Hue have 4 different clay mask options but I received “The White” one which is a nourishing and firming mask aim to “clean, tone, and smooth your skin with its collagen benefits”
I’ve used it once already and it’s just like a traditional clay mask and so far so good! As an initial first impression, it left my skin feeling really soft! However, I wasn’t the biggest fan of the particular smell that came off when I mixed the powder with water. It had this sort of sour smell to it. I might try mixing it with another liquid that they recommended on their website for the next time I use it!
Bronzer & Highlighter Split Pan by Manna Kadar ($21)
When I saw on Instagram that this split pan was going to be included in this month’s box, I was really excited but then I saw how small it was and thought, how’s a girl suppose to get her brush in that??
I swirled the smallest blush brush I could find into the pan and swept it on my cheeks–WHOA! This stuff is hella pigmented! Proving again not to judge something based on its size! Both the highlighter and bronzer are BEAUTIFUL and incredibly smooth and velvety. I know I’m gonna hit pan on this split pan real soon!
Pro Matte Eyeshadow by Concrete Minerals ($9)
I got the eyeshadow in the color Bandit which is described as a soft dusty rose. OH MY! This is what I forever dreamed of in a mineral eyeshadow. It’s matte, nude, incredibly pigmented, and long-lasting! For a while, I was trying to get into mineral eyeshadows but didn’t feel that they were long-wearing, this is a game changer and I’m on Concrete Minerals’ website right now looking at all of their other eyeshadow colors!
Eyeliner Pencil by OFRA Cosmetics ($13)
Any beauty box that includes an eyeliner is already a winner in my eyes! Especially if it’s vegan and cruelty-free because a good vegan eyeliner is hard to come by! and this OFRA eyeliner pencil is definitely a winner. It’s creamy and glides on smoothly but best of all, it’s water resistant!
Smart Ash Teeth Whitening Powder (Sample)
God Damn, this stuff is messy! Note to self: Don’t wear white when trying to open this ever again! I’ve heard some ahhhmazing things about using a tooth whitening powder and this one in particular from Bedrock & Bloom claims to not only help whiten your teeth but it’s also suppose to help strengthen and remineralize your teeth too!
I’m actually using another teeth whitening product right now which I plan on doing a full review on so I’ll have to put off on using this until I’m done with the other one! =)
Final Words on LaRitzy’s June 2016 Beauty Box
Although this month’s box was mostly filled with makeup products, I think LaRitzy did a fab job of including the perfect shades and products that were versatile enough to be used on any skin type and tone! I personally loved all 3 of the vegan makeup products!!
Have you tried any of these cruelty-free and vegan products included in this month’s LaRitzy beauty box?
