LaRitzy LaMini June 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 the box brings.

I’m not sure if you can see it clearly but in the top left corner of the box something has leaked.  They had sent out an email about this because I guess some of the people who had received boxes earlier than others had let them know stuff was a mess.  As a way to make up for this they sent all subscribers a code to use in the shop for $10.00.

The card let’s everyone know that this is the last box of this type.  This was also communicated via email a while before the boxes shipped.  They are switching their service from vegan beauty to their own line of cruelty-free cosmetics.  You will now receive 3 full-sized beauty items.  Anyone on a plan will have their terms fulfilled, just switched to the new boxes.

Jersey Shore Spa Anti-Aging Lip & Hand Polish-$25.00

This is a scrub made from brown sugar.  You can use it both on your hands, to reveal younger looking skin, or on your lips, to exfoliate and smooth them.  This one is Vanilla Bean scented and did leave my softer then when I started.

Pretty Woman NYC White Ceramic Nail Lacquer-$7.99

You could have received either blue or white and honestly I’d rather have the blue.  I will not wear white polish and I don’t do any fancy nail art so I wouldn’t even use it for accents.  It is a matte finish polish and they included a code JULY20 to get 20% off any purchase direct from them.

Mahogany Naturals Monoi Healing Oil Serum-$65.00

This is the leaking item.  The bottle is about half full now.  It smells really pretty and is for your hair.  It strengthens hair and adds shine, while reducing frizz.  You can use it on dry or damp hair.

Besides the leaking oil, I think this was an okay box.  All of the item seem to be full sized, which is nice, and while I dislike the polish, it’s not a bad item, just not my preference.  The value this month is $97.99, which is huge!  It’ll be interesting to see how the new boxes compare and what types of items will be in there.
