Review: Love Goodly’s Vegan Beauty
Happy April and in turn, Happy Earth Month! With April 22 — AKA Earth Day — just around the corner, I’m super excited to share my unboxing of the April and May Love Goodly box. For those of you who may not know, Love Goodly is a subscription box of curated vegan, cruelty-free products. If you’d like to check out more unboxing posts of previous Love Goodly boxes, please check out June/July 2017 and April/May 2017.
It’s important to note here that everything in this month’s box is eco-friendly, non-toxic, vegan, cruelty-free, and presented with minimal packaging. For each box, Love Goodly features a charity partner to help curate each product and for this one, LG worked directly with PETA. (So you know that cruelty-free label is authentic!)
My favorites from this month’s box are definitely the cuticle oil and the facial bar. The reason I love the cuticle oil is so much is because I generally don’t pay a lot of attention to the care of my nails. I have horrible cuticles and am super guilty of picking and biting them. (Bad habit.) But using cuticle oil is a much better and healthier alternative to having some ratchet-looking cuticles hanging off my nail beds. The facial bar is great too because it’s the mini size. The super-small size is perfect for travel and since I’ve been on the go lately, it was the perfect facial cleanser to bring a long with me on a string of recent trips!
Additionally, I was so excited to see that Love Goodly had partnered with PETA for this box. Obviously, if you’re committing to vegan skincare and makeup products, PETA’s goals and message are likely one that’s important to you. I’m here for you both and I’ve loved seeing what can happen when these two dope cruelty-free brands work together.
In general, Love Goodly tends to curate four to five products per box. I tried out the April/May 2018 box, which featured the following products:
- You & Oil — Acai, Fig, and Marula Antioxidants Complex, ($44)
- Uniful — Organic Mascara, ($22)
- Ayr Skin Care — Mini Calm Facial Bar, ($12)
- Delia Organics — Nail & Cuticle Oil, ($17.99)
The April/May box is valued in total at $95. Keep reading to check out my in-detail, product-by-product review!
