True Beauty Box
I’m really excited to share with you the newest True Beauty Box. The review of the previous Box can be found at this link: True Beauty Box Cruelty Free Cosmetics & Skin Care
True Beauty Box is for you if…
True Beauty Box is for you if you love to try different natural and cruelty free cosmetics and skin care! This monthly service launched in December of 2012. Unlike other beauty boxes, where you may or may not receive items that are cruelty free, Love True Natural is the company that is running the True Beauty Box. Love True Natural is a 100% natural and cruelty free beauty company.
While I strongly recommend that everyone always double-check, True Beauty Box does guarantee that all of the products that members receive in their True Beauty Box will be free of Parabens, PEG, Phthalates, Petrochemicals, and synthetic colors.
Every month the True Beauty Box will contain three to four FULL size products, (this month there are four), plus you will receive samples. In addition, True Beauty Box members will have exclusive access to sales and special prices on the Love True Natural website.
It starts by completing a beauty profile quiz at www.truebeautybox.com, and then choosing the style of box you want (Flirt, Veganista, or Indulge). After the quiz you simply submit the information, and your box will arrive soon.
As a member, you will receive a “sneak peak” of each beauty profile on the 12th of each month. True Beauty Box strives to make you happy, and they want to make certain that you’re going to love what you receive. Therefore, you not only don’t have to make a commitment, but each month you have the option to re-take the beauty quiz for a different beauty profile and box style. Of course, there is also the option to skip, or cancel by the 15th of each month. The only thing that you need to remember is that after the initial charge (for your first Box), you will automatically be charged on the 16th of each month if you do not notify them.
Of the three options, Flirt and Veganista are both currently $30; Indulge is $40. The Beauty Box that I received is as follows:
True Love Beauty Box: Flirt
True Beauty Box with Benecos Natural Baked Colour Eyeshadow
The gluten free eyeshadow in Chocolate is gorgeous! The formula is really smooth, and that’s because the organic plant oils provide a creamy application. You can apply the eyeshadow wet or dry, depending on the effect you want. Since they are baked, Benecos writes that their mineral shadow won’t crumble or shatter.
I love the sparkles. I think it’s just the right amount for a nice elegant look. I used eye shadow primer and the eye shadow stayed put, even with a trip to the gym (see the end of the post for picture).
True Beauty Box with Benecos Natural Kajal Eye Liner
This is a gluten free, matte black kohl pencil that is nice and creamy, and I had no trouble with thick or thin lines. It’s no surprise, since they are formulated with organic plant oils and pure minerals. Use along upper and lower lash lines.
Benecos eye liner pencils are safe for those who wear contact lenses. I applied primer on my eyelids, and this eye liner lasted– even with a trip to the gym (see photo at the end of the post).
True Beauty Box with Benecos Maximum Length Mascara
This gluten free mascara is in the color carbon black.
This naturally hydrating Super Long Lash Mascara adds length and carbon black tone to lashes without any chemicals. With Vitamin E.
I liked that the mascara did add some length to my lashes, and I liked the wand. Here’s a swatch of the black color:
The mascara is made with organic Jojoba, sunflower oils, and Vitamin E for hydration. I wore the mascara to the gym and the photo is at the end of the post.
True Beauty Box with Benecos Baked Blush
This gluten free, mineral blush is baked for color so that it lasts. The ingredients of Cupuau butter and Sacha Inchi oil will keep skin hydrated and provide anti-aging benefits.
I received coral, one of the two colors that the blush is available in:
The shimmery coral color is recommended for fair to medium skin tones.
Here is a great visual from Love True Natural for how to apply:
Round Face Shape
Apply directly to the cheek bones as flat as possible.
Square Face Shape
Apply the rouge between the hairline and cheeks. To begin at the far end of the cheek bone, apply the rouge in one stroke down gently and run out to leave the temples. So the distinctive shape of the face looks softer.
Oval Face Shape
Apply the rouge near the top approximatelly at the level of the temples and run diagonally to the corners of the mouth down. This gives the face more contour.
Heart Face Shape
Begin in the middle of the cheeks: Apply blush and run out from there to the temples.
True Beauty Box with Lavera Foundation
The following are two (2 ml) sample sizes of the Lavera Trend Sensitive Organic Natural Liquid Foundation
Porcelain 01- is for fair -yellowish undertones
Ivory 02- is for fair -medium rose undertone
Lavera Trend Sensitive Organic Natural Liquid Foundation is Vegan Society Certified. It is designed to lightly cover your imperfections. This is not a heavy foundation! It contains organic oils with conditioning properties, Vitamins A, C and E to help fight against free radicals. The Foundations have been tested by dermatologists and ophthalmologists.
I decided to put the mascara, eyeshadow and eyeliner to the test. I worked out at the gym and this is the after shot:
The Flirt Box was an excellent value at $30. Here is the price of each item if purchased separately:
Benecos Baked Eye Shadow is $13
Benecos Baked Blush is $16
Benecos Natural Eyeliner is $9
Benecos Maximum Length Mascara is $17
Lavera Foundation Samples 1 & 2
Grand total: $55.00, if purchased separately!
Here again is the True Beauty Box website; and of course, you can always let me know if you have any questions.
