KINDER BEAUTY BOX | A REVIEW

The new kid on the block in terms of subscription boxes is Kinder beauty Box. a vegan & cruelty free box filled with beauty + skincare items. The boxes are curated by actresses Evanna Lynch, (who played my favorite Harry potter character) Daniella Monet, and Andrew Bernstein. Advocating a plant based lifestyle and that is reflected in the title. Why not live a kinder life with the products that you use. 

This is an honest review of the January Kinder beauty Box box, which is unfortunately sold out, but a peek of what’s to come in their upcoming boxes. A monthly plan starts at $24. Each box will contain 3-4 full-sized products and samples that are 100% vegan, cruelty-free, and palm oil-free. The box and contents made from 100% recycled materials and is also biodegradable. A portion of all sales benefits animal rights charities.

Each spoonful enveloping you with it’s warmth, nourishing you with flavor, even at midnight when you finally have some peace to yourself.

I’m learning that I need to continuously come clean with myself. To confront myself and not hide away. I’m learning that it’s okay to pick up the pieces of yourself that hurt. This is how you develop strength. Release each breath, deep and cathartic as it may be. Allow yourself to feel because believe me your body longs to let everything out. This is how I revive myself through a difficult time.
