True Beauty Box Cruelty Free Skin Care & Cosmetics

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

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

 

Benecos 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.

Benecos eyeshadow

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

Benecos eyeliner

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.

Benecos mascara

This naturally hydrating Super Long Lash Mascara adds length and carbon black tone to lashes without any chemicals. With Vitamin E.

 Benecos mascara

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.

Benecos blush

 

I received coral, one of the two colors that the blush is available in:

 Benecos blush

The shimmery coral color is recommended for fair to medium skin tones.

Benecos blush

 

Here is a great visual from Love True Natural for how to apply:

rouge

Round Face Shape

Apply directly to the cheek bones as flat as possible.

 

 

 

rouge square

 

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.

rouge oval

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.

rouge

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

 Love True Natural Foundation

Porcelain 01- is for fair -yellowish undertones

 

Love True Natural Foundation

Ivory 02- is for fair -medium rose undertone

 

Love True Natural

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:

True Beauty Box Cruelty Free Cosmetics & Skin Care

True Beauty Box.  What is it?

True Beauty Box is for you if  you love to try different natural and cruelty free cosmetics and skin care!  This is a new monthly service that launched in December of 2012. Here’s how it works. 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.

The companies that are part of the True Beauty Box are as follows:

While I encourage everyone to always double-check, True Beauty Box does guarantee that all of the products that members receive will be free of:  Parabens, PEG, Phthalates, Petrochemicals, and synthetic colors.

Another great feature of the True Beauty Box is that every month there are three to four FULL Size products, 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.  The members-only promo codes are for 15% Off on LoveTrueNatural.com.
I followed the same steps that any member would to receive a box. I took a beauty profile quiz at www.truebeautybox.com and then I choose the style of box I wanted (Flirt, Veganista, or Indulge). After the quiz I submitted the information and was sent the Flirt Box in Organically On Trend.  It was that easy.
True Beauty Box is a month to month program, and you will receive a “sneak peak” of each beauty profile on the 12th of each month. They do that because they want to make certain that you’re going to love what you receive.  By having a month to month program, it means that you not only don’t have to make a commitment, but each month you can 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.
Just remember 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.
Here is the January box:

There is usually a card to describe what is in the box, but since it was sent to me a few days ahead of schedule, mine did not have one.

What full size products were in my True Beauty Box:

Benecos Nail Polish – free of Formaldehyde, Toluene, Camphor, Phthalates, and Colophony
Lavera Tinted Moisturizer – 100% natural, tinted moisturizer that is enriched with vitamins, minerals and organic Aloe Vera.
Lavera Mattifying Mineral Finish - This mineral powder gives skin a soft, velvety finish.
Sante Lipgloss in the color Rose Wood.

What Packets were in the True Beauty Box:

Lavera Natural Liquid Foundation
Green People Intensive Repair Shampoo and
Green People Intensive Repair Conditioner
(both for colored/damaged hair)

Monthly Goodie was Sassy Knots.  Sassy Knots are available in Headbands and Hair Ties. I received a hair tie and it’s great because it doesn’t snag my hair and it also doesn’t leave an annoying dent in my hair. Each hand-tied band is treated with a fray-resistant process. Great extra!

Sassy Knots

Check out Benecos nail polish in Deep Plum. A really rich, beautiful color. I have only one coat of polish and a top coat. I took this under various lights so you could see the dark, dramatic plum color. I had no trouble applying the polish and it’s so impressive that I was able to do my manicure with only one coat!!

Sante Lipgloss in Rose Wood:

Sante lipgloss

A glittery lipgloss in a jar. This will give a beautiful shine to your lips. You could apply it by itself, or top of a lipstick. This was very moisturizing!

Lavera Tinted Moisturizer:

Love having a pump on this moisturizer!

Notice that there is an expiration date on the bottom:

Lavera Mattifying Mineral Finish - This mineral loose powder gives skin a soft, velvety finish. Why would you use it? Loose powder will extend lip & eye makeup, and provides a finish over liquid makeup or tinted moisturizer.

I love that Lavera includes a puff with a band for you to hold to make it even easier to apply the loose powder!

The Flirt Box in Organically On Trend was an excellent value at $30.00. Check the True Beauty Box website for prices and further details.
