LaRitzy LaMini April 2016

LaRitzy is a monthly box of vegan beauty items.  They select surprise items and send them along to you to try.  They offer two box sizes, La Ritzy, which gives you 4-5 full and luxury sized items, and LaMini, which is 2-3 items.  Boxes start at $24.99 and $14.99 respectively, but they do give a discount on longer term plans.  Shipping is free for the US, $5.00 for Canada, and $10.00 Internationally.  I am not vegan but I was looking for a reasonably priced makeup box and this one fits that so the fact that they items are vegan doesn’t matter to me.  Let’s see what my first box brings.

OMG!! How cute is the box???  That little pig just makes me smile.  Three of the sides let you know that it is from LaRitzy and that it’s vegan and cruelty-free.

OPening the box I could see that there were three items in there.  They did not include an info card.

There are two cards specific to items.  The first one gives you a discount code to Toogga and the other one tells you how to use their enclosed product.

Leo & Goa Pearlies-$2.38

Okay….so I’ve only heard the horror stories that go with oil pulling and they make me sick to even think about trying it.  This sachet is filled with coconut oil and you put it in your mouth and swish it around for 5-15 minutes. After that you spit it out and brush as normal.   It is supposed to help whiten teeth and make your whole mouth cleaner by removing the bacteria.  I don’t know that I’ll be able to have warm oil in my mouth for any amount of time without gagging.  I guess I’ll try it out but I don’t have much hope.

Lippy Girl Vegocentric Vegan Lipstick in Coral Me Maybe-$23.00

How great is this?  It is a Canadian company out of Vancouver!  This lipstick is a lighter coral shade and I like it.  I don’t normally wear coral but the last few I’ve received have worked really well for me.  All of their products are organic, vegan, bee-free, chemical-free, and gluten free.  Beyond all that, this one item more than covered the cost of the box.

Toogga 100% Pure Toogga Desert Date Oil-$10.00

This is an oil moisturizer for hair, skin, and nails.  This oil is extracted from the Toogga nut and it has a faint nutty smell.  I was surprised at how fast it absorbed into my skin!  It does feel slightly greasy but no more that a regular lotion might.  It says it can reduce wrinkles and regenerate healthy skin.  It also can help heal scars and alleviating acne, sunburns and rashes.  I’m going to give this a good try and if I like it the coupon to get a discount is going to be used.

I’m very happy with my first box from LaRitzy.  Two of the items were full sized and the third I guess could count that way too.  I’m not too thrilled with the oil pulling but the other two products are great.  The value this month is $35.28, which is double the cost of the box.  I’m almost wishing I’d gone for the full size box now.
