The Vegan Kind November Beauty Box

It has been awhile since I reviewed a beauty box or even received one for that matter but today I am bringing a very special beauty box to your attention! 

The Vegan Kind Beauty Box (£15)* comes out every three months and gets delivered in February, May, August and then last one in November. Each beauty box contains 5-8 items and is guaranteed a retail value of more than £15! I love the idea of a vegan and cruelty free beauty box and just like with The Vegan Kind Lifestyle box, you get a nice array of brands to try.

This balm is formulated without parabens, sodium lauryl sulphate, artificial fragrances or colours and no genetically modified ingredients! It is 100% free of harsh chemicals and is full of super-charged essential oils, cocoa butter and shea butter. This multi-tasking balm delivers intense hydration and care to the parts of the body you apply it to and can be used on hands, nails, heels, elbows, lips etc. I have been using this on the dry pieces on my arms and hands and so far it is working! I will keep testing this through winter as I really enjoy multi-tasker balms! This is definitely an 'at home' balm as the tub it comes in is pretty sizeable and maybe not something you want to put into your handbag BUT it is great after a bath or shower! 

I love that TVK included an item that can be readily picked up from the drugstore! I love B. products and always look at what is new at my local Superdrug. I already own one of these chubby pencils and love it and so this is a welcome edition too! The colour is a beautiful natural peachy rose colour and looks great on the cheeks and lips. It adds a really healthy flush of colour and is great to use on the go and very easy to blend! 

The lip balm addict inside of me was very excited when I saw this in the box and Candy Cane sounds like the best lip balm for this season! A new flavour added to the Fairy Pants family and made with Shea Butter, Jojoba Wax and Sweet Almond Oil this balm is gorgeously yummy with its minty, vanilla fragrance and taste. Again this can be used on lips and skin (loving the multi-purpose products in the box so far)! Fairy Pants not only specialise in vegan cosmetics but they make jewellery and accessories! 

Filled with herbs to soothe tired and aching muscles as well as soften rough skin, the Freya Luna Happy Feet Footbath is a wonderful addition to any pamper routine. Ingredients include Sodium Bicarbonate, Lavender, Thyme, Marjoram and Lemongrass. There is enough in the sachet for 2-3 footbaths and all you need to do is add it to a bowl of warm water and dip your feet into it for at least 10 minutes! Simple and refreshing! 

With a blend of lavender and chamomile to help promote the growth of new skin cells and leaves skin soft, the Skin Support Facial Steam Bath has a balancing effect on skins sebum and is a great way to deep cleanse, eliminate toxins and boost circulation in the skin. The formula also has lemon balm and rose petals and is very easy to use as you just steam your face for 8-10 minutes, rinse your face with warm water and then with cool. 

In November's beauty box the 5 items add up to a total of £32.47! This box is a complete bargain and I love the variety of the products inside Novembers box!

The featured charity of the month is The Dr Hawden Trust, who are the UK's leading non-animal medical research charity! You don't have to subscribe to TVK to donate to them either and can do so by donating online at

*A huge thank you to the lovely team at TVK for sending me November's box to review! As always, all opinions are my own and 100% honest*


  1. I love the idea of a lip and cheek tint. It will save me resorting to an old habit of using the lipstick I'm wearing that day as an under-blush :)

    1. It would definitely be a good option if you need a multi-tasker! This colour is beautiful and at least they are affordable :D
