Back at the end of November I posted about a new cruelty free beauty subscription, The Pip Box, that was launching this February. If you missed that post you can read it here. I’m really excited to be able to reveal to you the February Pip Box, which will be the launch box of this wonderful new subscription.
A beauty subscription box that will only ever include cruelty free products in its box each month. You will also only ever receive full size or travel size products too; so no teeny tiny samples or sachets to be found in The Pip Box either.
Now, if you don’t want to be spoiled for the contents of the February Pip Box, then don’t read any further because this post does contain spoilers of what is coming up in the first ever box of this brand new cruelty free beauty subscription.
The February Pip Box arrived in a very sturdy white box, which ensures that it protects the contents of the box. A very pretty powder blue tissue paper sealed with the Pip Box logo contains all the goodies inside.
The products also came in this pretty hot pink drawstring bag, which I think is a really lovely addition, rather than just having all the products laying in the box. This may not be always be practical for future boxes, depending on the size of the products each month. It was a fab little touch though!
So, I know you’re all dying to know what is actually in the box, aren’t you? Oh, go on then, I’ll show you!
PHB Ethical Beauty Black Mascara – PHB Ethical Beauty is a brand I am already familiar with and I know is fantastic. This mascara was Winner of Best Mascara Green Parent Beauty Awards, and is recommended by Vogue, Glamour and Natural Health Magazine. That’s quite a repertoire. Not only will this mascara lengthen, thicken and volumise your lashes but it does all that as a gentle water-resistant formula. No smudges, no flaking and best of all no irritation. Plus, the botanical oils in its formula will naturally strengthen and lengthen your lashes too. (Vegan friendly too)
PHB Ethical Beauty Nearly Black Eyeliner – We’re lucky to have 2 items by PHB Ethical Beauty in the February Pip Box, the second being their Nearly Black Eyeliner. I already own this eyeliner and it’s really lovely. My eyes are pretty sensitive and do water very easily. This eyeliner is great because even though it is a plant-based formula, it is also water-resistant. It’s rich in pigment and applies to the eye really easily. It’s not scratchy or hard like some eyeliners can be. With a gentle formula of plant oils and waxes, this eyeliner gives long-lasting, pigmented colour. (Vegan friendly too)
Saturated Colour Lip Vinyl Liquid Lipstick – I already own about 6 or 7 lip products from Saturated Colour and their incredible Make Me Matte. I don’t have any of their Vinyl Liquid Lipsticks though, so I was really excited to see this in the February Pip Box. This gorgeous Frisky Fuchsia shade is really lovely. The lip vinyl itself is a hybrid between a lipstick and lip gloss. You get high impact colour but no stickiness like you would with a regular lip gloss. You can either wear it as bold lip or blend it out for a more subtle, gradient look. It’s also Vegan Friendly too.
Bloomtown Botanicals Nourishing Mini Soap – I absolutely ADORE Bloomtown Botanicals and have quite a few items from their fabulous range of Palm Oil free products. These soaps are handcrafted and made in small batches. They are free from palm oil, animal products, wheat, sulfates, SLS’s, parabens, synthetic colours and detergents. Containing plant oils and butters, these gorgeous soaps will wash away all the days dirt, oil and grime from you skin and leave it feeling soft, clean and nourished. You don’t get that tight feeling after using these soaps either, like you can do with some. (Vegan Friendly)
Akamuti Green Clay Face Mask – The last item in the February Pip Box is this green clay mask from Akamuti. Made from sun-dried green clay, which is fantastic for sensitive skins, this clay mask will draw out any impurities in your skin. As the clay is sun-dried it means that it retains all its natural minerals because it has not been chemically processed at all.
It might leave your face slightly red and feeling warm afterwards but that is just a sign that its actually doing it’s job. It means it is working as it should be and drawing out impurities. Basically this is just your skin de-toxing and the symptoms fade pretty quickly.
Overall Thoughts About The February Pip Box
The first Pip Box is really great. With 3 full-sized make-up items including an award-winning mascara and eye liner, plus a gorgeous vinyl liquid lipstick, it’s a great start to getting a cruelty free selection of make-up to use. The vinyl liquid lipstick is a really versatile colour that should suit all skin tones too.
It’s also worth noting that ALL of the products in this box are palm oil free too.
On top of that, for every box that is sold, 50p is donated to charity – cruelty free international. How amazing is that?! You can buy your box, enjoy your products AND know you are doing your bit for a really good cause too!
The total of February Pip Box is over £35.00, which is practically double the price you pay for it. That’s fantastic!
