The Cruelty Free Beauty Box July Review

July 31, 2017 3 Comments

It’s really great to see there are a fair number of cruelty free beauty boxes available now. A lot of people are making the switch to cruelty free products, so it’s great for them to be able to have a choice. One of the latest subscriptions is The Cruelty Free Beauty Box, and they very kindly sent me their July Beauty Box for review purposes.

There are two boxes available:-

  • The Make Up Box
  • The Beauty Box

Once you have chosen your box preference, you can then select your personal preferences. This means that you get products suited to your needs, style and tastes. Or if you prefer, there is an option to choose ‘Surprise Me’. The choice is really down to you!

The Cruelty Free Beauty Box

So, let’s take a look at what items were in Julys’ Cruelty Free Beauty Box!


Skin Refresh Gel Seaweed & Mint – PHB Ethical Beauty RRP £13.75

The Cruelty Free Beauty Box

I am a big fan of this gel and I have 3 jars of it now! It’s really soothing and cooling to the skin. Also great for insect bites when they are angry and itching like crazy – this gel is fantastic for easing them. It also happens to smell pretty darn nice too! It’s pretty much a great all-rounder when you want to soothe and moisturise your skin. It’s really refreshing on your feet – just need someone to give you a nice foot massage when applying it!


Concealer Brush – PHB Ethical Beauty RRP £8.50

The Cruelty Free Beauty Box

This is a lovely soft concealer brush by PHB Ethical Beauty. I’ve received some of their brushes before and they have all been of a really high quality. It’s also a great brush for highlighting too.


Vegan Lip Scrub – Fairy Pants RRP £3.99

The Cruelty Free Beauty Box

This very adorable pot of vegan lip scrub by Fairy Pants makes your lips feel super smooth & soft after use. This one is Parma Violet and it really does smell like it too. A big plus to this lip scrub is that you can lick it off afterwards! Seriously though, it’s a gorgeous lip scrub and will help get rid of dry, rough lips easily.


Frankincense Divine Face Serum – Awake Organics RRP £29.99 20ml

The Cruelty Free Beauty Box

I actually haven’t tried this yet because I don’t want it to interfere with other products I am already testing. It is a Vegan Super Food Serum though; promising to brighten, nourish, plump and hydrate dull skin, whilst also helping to diminish the fine lines too.

100% Plant Based, Mindful Face Oil

5 Active Essentials
Unadulterated Frankincense, Carrot Seed, Rose Geranium, Patchouli & Lavender essential oils instantly soothe and hydrate lacklustre skin, while minimising the appearance of fine lines. On a spiritual level, these mystical oils harmoniously promote a sense of wellbeing, calm and connection.

8 Organic Botanicals
Concentrated and vitamin-packed! Made with pure, organic ingredients direct from Mother Nature. Unprocessed, raw, Vegan and consciously sourced.

7 Bio-Oils
Unrefined, cold-pressed fruit, seed and kernel oils absorb deeply, for softer, brighter, plumper looking skin.

Super Light Coconut Cleanser – Balm Balm RRP £14.50 100ml

The Cruelty Free Beauty Box

Balm Balm is a brand I see fairly regularly in beauty boxes. However, I have never seen this cleanser before, so it was really nice to see a different product from them.  It’s a very light cleansing oil. Suitable for all skin types.  Simply massage the cleansing oil into your skin and remove with a damp muslin cloth. It does say you can also use it to remove eye make up.


  • Caprylic/capric triglycerides
    (Coconut Oil)


Overall Thoughts About The Cruelty Free Beauty Box

The Cruelty Free Beauty Box

I really enjoyed the products in the July Cruelty Free Beauty Box.

Even though I have received some of these products previously in other beauty boxes, they are all really high-quality products. Plus, as a beauty blogger that reviews subscription boxes, pretty sure I receive a lot more boxes than the average subscriber.

You can also choose to opt for either of  Make Up Box or the Beauty Box each month too. So you can swap each month if you want to. Just remember to swap before the 1st of the month you want it to change. There’s no limit to how many times you want to switch between boxes either.

On the 15th of each month, the products in the boxes get added to the Cruelty Free Beauty Box online store too.


How Much Does The Cruelty Free Beauty Box Cost?

  • The Make Up Box – £19.95 per month inc free shipping
  • The Beauty Box – £14.95 per month inc free shipping

There is also a 3-month & 6-month plan available too.

All Include Boxes Free Shipping within the UK.

They also ship to Europe, USA & Canada (Shipping costs are calculated at the checkout).


Where Can I Subscribe to The Cruelty Free Beauty Box?

You can sign up to either The Make Up Box or The Beauty Box at the official website. Plus, you can also visit their Beauty Shop too, which is their online store.

  • So when I purchased the Honey Potion from @Beautylish about 3 months ago, I also purchased these bad boys from @goodmolecules too! 😀⠀ ⠀ I haven't cracked them open yet though as I already have a few serums/oils in rotation at the moment.

  • Happy Friday everyone!! ⠀ ⠀ I know a lot of people have to have their coffee first thing before they get going for the day. ⠀ ⠀ Me? Well, this is exactly how I like my coffee in the morning- in my face scrub! 😛⠀ ⠀ Truly love this @upcirclebeauty Face Scrub. (Citrus Blend) ⠀ ⠀ Smells amazing, leaves my face clean, soft, moisturised and gently exfoliated - not tight and dry like some products can. 😍⠀ ⠀ Such a great way to recycle the coffee grounds too. 😀⠀ ⠀ What's your favourite exfoliator to use? ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #coffeescrub #veganfacescrub #scrub #petitejoys #theeverygirl #theinstagramlab #instaskincare ⠀ #organicskincare #cleanbeauty #upcircle #upcirclebeauty #repurposed #repurpose #upcycle #upcycled #circularskincare #circulareconomy #coffeeskincare #caffeinatedskincare #sustainablecosmetics #coffeewaste #coffeerecycling #cleanskincare #veganskincare #greenskincare #skincarecommunity #plantbasedbeauty #plantbasedskincare #skincareroutines #skincarebloggers
  • I'll admit I am a sucker for a good face mask. Even more so if it's a honey one. 🍯 😍⠀ ⠀ This @farmacybeauty Honey Potion had been on my wishlist since I first came across it on Instagram ages ago. All I can say is it did not disappoint. Actually it did, in fact, exceed my expectations! ⠀ ⠀ I love watching the honey gooey texture change from a golden hue to creamy white when you start to massage it into your skin as it gets warm. ⠀ ⠀ After 10-15 mins it's ready to rinse off. Personally, I prefer to gently remove with a damp cloth, then pat dry.⠀ ⠀ My face always feels so very soft afterwards. It's suitable for all skin types but especially those that are dry, dehydrated and dull, which is pretty much my skin all over. I do feel like my skin looks more radiant as well as feeling nice and hydrated after using Honey Potion. ⠀ ⠀ I'd like to also mention the packaging, which is just beautiful - and I adore that the spatula/lid is magnetic too! 😊⠀ ⠀ This was a bit of a luxe purchase for me as I ordered it from Beautylish, along with some other skincare goodies that I wanted to try. I loved that I could split the total into 3 payments with them too. 🙂⠀ ⠀ Have you tried Honey Potion or anything else from @farmacybeauty?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #honeypotion #farmacybeauty #skincare #skincareroutine #skincarecommunity #skincarejunkie #skincareproducts #skincareobsessed #skincarenatural #skincareluxury #facemask #facemasks #farmacy #propolis #royaljelly #honey
  • {gifted} I don't really like wearing foundation so this 'Feel Like Honey Moon Skin Base' by @touchinsol_ldn is perfect for me. It's not only a great base to use under your makeup but also makes your skin glow all on its own! 😍⠀ ⠀ I happily wear this without feeling the need to put foundation on, or even a BB or CC cream. ⠀ ⠀ Of course, it is a honey & collagen-based primer with a host of natural extracts & vitamins, so no wonder it makes the skin look, radiant and, for want of a better word, bouncy! 🍯 ⠀ ⠀ What's your favourite primer/base to wear alone or under makeup?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #touchinsol_ldn #mmcl_ldn #primer #skincare #theinstagramlab #howyouglow #discoverunder20k #koreanskincare #rasianbeauty #koreanbeauty #kskincare #asianbeauty #skincareaddict #instaskincare #theblogtribe ⁣#화장품그램 #ABMhappylife #화장품추천 #스킨케어⁣ #abcommunity #abbeatthealgorithm #kbeauty #abskincare #abblogger #instablogger #kbeautyblogger #petitejoys #theeverygirl #touchinsol⠀
  • {prgifted} Perfect for #pinkwednesday #onwednesdayswewearpink are this @neekskinorganics vegan moisturiser and vegan cleanser. They have been a dream to use. Both are such lovely products. 😊⠀ ⠀ I found them to be gentle and nourishing for my skin. 😍⠀ ⠀ Have you tried these products before? 🙂⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #prettyinpink #pinkskincare #wednesdayvibes #skincareproducts #skincareaddict #skincarecommunity #pinkandwhite #skincarejunkie #skincareobsessed #neekskinorganics #skincareroutine #veganskincare #healthyskin #australianmadecosmetics #cleanbeauty #greenbeauty #naturalskincare #glowingskin #vegancleanser #simpleskincare #nontoxicbeauty #crueltyfreeskincare #antiageing
