I recently published a review of my first Vegan Cuts beauty box, which is a beauty box subscription service that helps people to discover vegan and cruelty-free beauty. The great thing about this box is that it helps you to discover beauty products you would never have known exist otherwise. If you like indie beauty brands, bespoke and boutique beauty, this is the box for you.

I’ve wanted to try Pacifica products for so long but this is the very first product I actually have for myself. I had high hopes for the Alight Multi-Mineral BB cream because I’m a big fan of BB’s but unfortunately this one was just too dark for me at the moment. I think it will work nicely in summer when my skin darkens up a bit so I’ll wait a couple of months and give it another go. It did feel light on the skin and comfortable to wear.
Emani Vegan Cosmetics
Last month I got one of their lipsticks and I loved it, but as you will see in my video I got it confused with the brand that gave us a cheek/eyes/lips colour. So actually, the Mineral Hybrid Cream I got in this box is actually very different and I’m just a dope for confusing them. After playing with this for a week or so I ended up LOVING it. It’s a beautiful formula, a great colour on my eyes (bit too dark for my cheeks but would be wonderful for dark complexions) and the shimmers make the bronze hue look metallic. Emani has now delivered me 2 out of 2 incredible products.
There is nothing too complicated to this bath soak. The packet contains a mixture of varying sea salts and natural fragrance oils. They come in a variety of scents but the Muscle Soak I received contains eucalyptus, mint, rosemary and tea tree. I’m actually quite sensitive to tea tree so I couldn’t use this product but I do know sea salts are very good for soaking to relieve aches and pains. I’m not a fan of mint scented things and this one does strongly smell like mint.
The range of Energy Mists are designed to balance your senses. It says to spray in front of your face (not on your face!) or on a handkerchief and then deeply inhale the scent. The earthy scent has a bit of a zing and it does wake me up a little. The included essences in this concoction are Frankincense, Cypress, Benzoin, Cedarwood, Ginger and Pine. I’m thinking of taking it on my next long-haul flight to help me when I get a bit nervous.
I wouldn’t usually use a facial cleansing bar but this one intrigued me because it uses green clay, which I’ve heard is great for clearing skin and I definitely need that at the moment. It doesn’t have much of a scent, I can mostly smell shea or coconut with some unknown essential oils. The sample gave me a couple of uses and it felt lovely but I just can’t bring myself to use a bar, it feels too weird for me and I worry about how hygienic it is. I can’t even use hand soap if it’s in a bar!
