This review is for The Vegan Box – April Beauty Box which retails for $49.95 AUD every two months.
What The Vegan Box say about this subscription box:

The Vegan Beauty Box is bursting with skin-loving goodies, ranging from full size, sample size and travel sized items, and is always valued at over $60. A new Vegan Beauty Box is released every 2nd month.”
The Vegan Box April beauty box was a lovely surprise, packed with a number of full and trial sized products.
All of the brands are based in Australia, and everything in the box is always vegan and cruelty free!
The Vegan Box beauty box only comes out once every two months and it costs more than the other beauty subscription boxes out there, but that means that the value of each box is higher and from what I can tell they are more likely to include full sized products.
The Vegan Box April beauty box contained:
Gradual tanning moisturiser in Glow, $26 value
I have very fair skin and I was very excited to try this tanning moisturiser. I applied it every evening for four days, and I actually didn’t see any difference in the depth of my skin colour. I do love how it makes my skin feel though – and the scent – so I will definitely continue to use it. Have you tried this tanning moisturiser? Do you have any tips for me to get better results? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below!
Certified organic lip tint in Cosmic, $25 value
This tinted lip balm smells so good (it’s minty) and the colour is a really natural red with a *tiny* bit of shimmer. It lasts like a lip balm, and reapplication is a breeze.
Pure Jojoba Oil 15ml, $10 value
I am a big fan of oils so I was very happy to see this bottle of Jojoba in the box. The Jojoba Company’s Jojoba oil is quite thick compared to some others I’ve tried, and it absorbs into the skin more readily. I would definitely repurchase this. Google uses for Jojoba oil, or check out my post on oils for skincare. If you aren’t already a fan of oils, I promise they will change your life.
Hand and nail cream in Relaxation, $12.95 value
I have always had dry skin (except when I’m in super high humidity, which I love) and I always need hand creams, so this inclusion was a nice surprise as well. I absolutely adore the scent of this one, which is a blend of patchouli, mandarin, Roman chamomile and geranium. I do find that it doesn’t absorb straight away, but take an extra 30 seconds to massage it in and most of the slide should dissapear.
Detox face mask 10g trial pack, $8.95 value
This face mask comes as a powder that can be mixed with water or oils. Only a teaspoon is used at a time, so this trial pack will last for a number of applications. I mixed the powder with about half a tablespoon of coconut oil and left the mix on for about twenty minutes, then I washed it off with a warm washcloth. Turmeric masks always make my skin feel nice and this one was no exception! The addition of the clay made my skin feel extra cleansed, and the sandalwood scent was nice but not at all overpowering. My hubby even told me I looked radiant afterwards, so I give this one two thumbs up 😉

Makeup Artist Tip:
Enjoy! Being sent items that you might not normally use can be a great way to play and potentially find new products you love. If you receive a product and you aren’t sure how to use it, just google it! You might discover a new favourite YouTube personality in the process. We can always improve on (and simplify) our beauty routines, so it’s important to be open to trying new things ❤️
