LOVE GOODLY: June/July Vegan & Cruelty-Free Subscription Box Review*
Today’s post is all about Love Goodly, a vegan and cruelty-free subscription box curated in Los Angeles, California. They are a $29.95 subscription box that comes out every other month, with 4-5 full sized products that always have a value over $75. The company and their profits support beagle freedom project or Farm Sanctuary. Also, always 100% vegan, non-toxic, and cruelty-free. I wrote a post for Love Goodly in 2015 reviewing one product from the September box of that year, but now I’m back to review the full June/July 2017. Skully Smith, a vegan influencer and the founder of Modern Compassion teamed up with Love Goodly to guest-curate this box. As well as including a product from her favourite vegan and cruelty-free brand, Kat Von D Beauty. (I chat about Kat Von D Beauty in my first impressions post, my Lock It Foundation review and my foundation routine post.) Keep on reading to find out which one!
Kat Von D Beauty Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in ‘Lovecraft’
My new favourite lipstick of all-time, I kid you not. It matches my lips almost perfectly, applies smoothly and stays put no matter what. A slightly more pink-toned nude, it’s endlessly versatile and I see it working well on all skin tones. Perhaps even better than ‘Lolita’? I have ‘Lolita’ too and it’s incredibly similar, but I seem to find ‘Lovecraft’ a lot easier to wear. It’s a lot more natural-looking on me, and works perfectly with every eye look I’ve tried with it thus far, be it dramatic or neutral. It’s also cruelty-free, vegan and non-toxic. 10/10, will be re-purchasing forever.
Faby Nail Polish
I didn’t receive this item, as liquids of this size can’t be sent from the US to Ireland, but I’m chatting about it anyway. There are ten potential shades from Faby, one of which will be in every subscription box. They contain none of the following ingredients: DBP, Toulene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, TPHP, Parabens or Xylene. They present high-shine results that are super long-lasting, and are vegan and cruelty-free. If you’re a fan of bright nail colours, Faby is the way forward!
Gemtye Custom Heart Bracelet and Hair Tie
Because everyone needs the hair off their face at some stage. Now, you can do so in style. Created in black, the Gemtye bracelet/hair tie showcases a black (or turquoise depending on which you receive) enamel heart in the centre. I have really long, thick hair, and it’s proven perfect for keeping mine up and off my face. It also sits subtle and pretty on my wrist when not in use. A genius creation with a dual purpose, it’s perfected with the fact that it doesn’t sit too tightly on the wrist like most hair ties do. I can’t help but recommend investing in it!
Fred + Far Trillion Pin
With the likes of Punky Pins, Pintrill and Pin Game on the cards, pins have become all the rage within the last year or two. Whether studding them on a shoulder bag or on the lapel of your favourite denim jacket, they’re everywhere. And here’s another to add to your collection! The message behind this pin is to choose yourself on a daily basis, which is super important. I find that I put other people first, and leave myself out a lot. But I’m important too and need a reminder of that. Fred + Far stand for the act of loving yourself, and signify self-love through the creation of this pin. It’s so aesthetically pleasing too, in simple white and a geometric shape/pattern – LOVE!
New Chapter Perfect Hair, Skin & Nails Supplements
I haven’t tried these yet, but as an avid supplement-taker (Damn you, anemia) these New Chapter vitamins look so promising! They contain 100% of your GDA of Biotin, both fermented and probiotic, to guarantee the body’s production of keratin. AKA, the substance that makes up your hair and nails. They also include plant-sourced Astaxanthin, an antioxidant which supports the elasticity of the skin. They’re non-GMO Project Verified, ICS Organic certified, and 100% vegan. This pack contains 15 days worth of supplements and is made in the USA.
