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. It’s wonderful that they are choosing products that are palm oil free because elevates the products in terms of social consciousness but also doing the work for you.
Sipsby is a new to me company that’s all about tea. Hailing out of Austin, TX this is a monthly tea discovery subscription box that curates to your personalized tea preferences. If you’re wary of trying out a box because you want to receive something you know you’ll like, the Sipsby signup includes a checklist of questions (its very simple but helpful!) such as preferred tea flavors, tea varieties (maybe you love green tea but don’t care for white tea), and so on. This keeps the element of surprise open and up to you!
Example, I selected that I prefer sweet, “dessert”, and health/wellness tea. I selected that I personally favor all types of tea leaves and non tea-leaves (tisanes) so that opened up my profile to be diverse. However, you can always retake your tea profile quiz if you want to shake things up or simply add more to your curations.
Coinciding with this month’s theme is the Goddess Provision March Box on Wellness. This is perhaps the ideal curated subscription service that covers all the bases: cruelty free, minimally packaged, and each product is thoughtfully selected to serve a purpose (read: not a filler item). It’s my joy & excitement each month to unveil the selected theme and really apply what the Goddess Provisions team has set up for us in the particular month.
Real Talk: for me, wellness means personal wellness. It means identifying what works best for your body &. mind in order for you to find a happy medium of health and joy. I say medium because I don’t really believe balance is completely attainable. We’re all human, we have our good days, our bad days, our days when we just want to step back and relax, our days when we have a lust for life and fun. In my opinion: it’s about addressing yourself first and making necessary steps to continually learn about yourself.
