Bare Bliss Box November 2014

Bare Bliss Box is an organic, vegan, and toxic free makeup and beauty product subscription.  You can subscribe month to month or in three month increments.  It is either $16.99 a month or $12.99 if you choose to pay in the three month option plus shipping to Canada of course. This box always takes a long time to get to me.  This month they had a shipping issue with one of their products so it went out even later then normal.  They actually had said that they product would be shipped out separately so that they could get the rest of the box out in a reasonable time but I received everything in my box so maybe mine was just going to be super late anyways.

November’s theme is I Heart My Skin and they tell you a few facts about your skin on the lid.

The info card gives you some tips on how to get healthy skin and the back lists the products and a bit about them.

Simplicity Cosmetics Vegan Mineral Eyeshadow in Moth-1g $7.00 Full Size

This is a handcrafted product and can be found on Etsy. This is a taupe shade with plum undertones according to the site and it is actually lighter then the picture makes it out to be.  I think it will be a great shade for me and I really like mineral makeup.

Southern Magnolia Minerals Cosmetics Sun Kiss Bronzer-1oz $4.50

This is a shimmery champagne colored powder bronzer.  I almost never wear bronzer but I think this would make a great blush as well, so that’s my plan for this one.  One of the great things I’ve found about the vegan/natural beauty boxes is that due to the inherent properties of mineral makeup they qualify for them and I think that’s great. I will always chose a mineral product if I can, I like them a lot.

Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Body Lotion-20mL $1.65

This product is actually for mature skin but that has never stopped me before.  Also since it’s a body lotion not a face lotion I think it matters less.  It has a kind of refreshing scent but it’s not the best smelling thing ever.  It will get used but it’s not my favorite item to have received.

Void Beauty Vegan Nail Polish in Golden Child-$18.00 Full Size

This is the product that was supposed to be missing from the box.  I’m glad it made it though because this is a fabulous shade of nail polish!  It’s not an ostentatious gold color, but a classy deeper shade that is perfect for New Years or anytime really.  The one coat I swatched on gave good coverage and dried quickly. Beyond being vegan it is also 5 free.

This months box has a value of $31.15 and contained two full sized products.  It was an improvement over last month but still not wow worthy enough for me to renew after my three month subscription is up.  It is very affordable and if you are looking to try out these types of products then I think it’s a good place to start.  My biggest complaint with both of the vegan boxes I receive is that they ship very late in the month and take a long time to arrive to me, making me wonder when  or if I am ever going to get them.  I have been happy with the products I’ve had to try though so I guess that’s just nit-picking.
