Benevolent Monthly VIP Beauty July 2017 Box has five full size products!

Ethically minded beauties that are trying to make a difference by sticking to cosmetics, skin and hair care to nail products without harming animals in testing of those products would love Benevolent Beauty Box.  It is a cruelty-free beauty subscription that will put your mind at rest while sending you only wonderful, full-size beauty items that make you look sensational and feel good about how they were manufactured. 

This beauty subscription works by giving you the choice of two sizes of the box to select from.  One is the regular size with the Monthly VIP box, which I was sent that may contain between four and seven full-size products for $29.95 a month and free USA shipping.  The other option is the Mini Monthly box that has two to three full-size items or at times can have some sample sizes for $15.95 and free shipping as well. 

You also get a small brochure with information about each product, the retail price and if the item is vegan. If you’re confused about the word vegan in beauty, it means that no animal or its byproducts were used in making that product.

As to the assortment that arrived in my first box, I was quite impressed by what I found.  Explore with me and you’ll quickly understand why I found it so appealing.

The Laritzy Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick was in “Nudes,” a brown-pink color that had enough warmth for setting off any mouth, regardless of skin tone.  Once you take the wand out, you can’t help but adore the product’s delicious scent. As to the formula, it had a nice, lighter texture without feeling sticky while cushioning the lips in moisture and beautiful natural matte color for several hours.

The Manna Kadar Cosmetics Glo Illuminator was a treat to find.  This tube is like liquid pink-tan light that can perk up skin with instant subtle radiance without chunky, obvious glitter to pull it off.

This illuminator helps skin beam, not load it with glitter or sparkle!

The Moody Sisters Lightweight Moisturizer looks more on the order of a body lotion, being a generous four fluid ounces, only it was a facial moisturizer.  It is lightweight and an ideal one for summer for normal to oily complexions, but even my dry skin that behaves a bit differently the more the weather heats up, appreciated how it hydrates.  The formula has aloe juice, witch hazel and pure essential oils that won’t clog pores or add extra shine to the face.  Their company also included a coupon code to get 10% off your first order at their website, which is always welcome.

Saint Cosmetics Eyeshadow that was in my box came in Heavens Gates Gold. Other boxes varied with All Hell Broke Loose, Hot to Trot or Hot ‘N Horny as possibilities.  This was a well-pigmented, long-wearing formula with jojoba and sunflower seed oils in a fabulous satin sunny peach shade that really seems to light up the eyes.

Heavens Gates Gold is a very versatile shade that you'll get plenty of use from.

The last product in my box was the Jersey Shore Cosmetics Anti-Aging Screen Stick SPF 30.  Instead of chemicals, this one is a healthier physical sunscreen with safer UV broad spectrum protection through red raspberry seed oil, coconut oil and youth preserving sea buckthorn oil.  Like other physical sunscreens with zinc oxide, this product does coat the skin with more whiteness than chemical-based sunscreens.  I wouldn’t call it exactly sheer, but this stick did blend in and worked well for my drier complexion without making me extra greasy in the face.  I also liked how convenient it was for throwing in your handbag, pack in a suitcase or beach bag.

I honestly thought Benevolent Monthly VIP July 2017 Beauty Box was a fantastic collection of products and a genuine bargain, being a value of $114.  I can’t wait to see what exciting beauty that the next box will bring.  I bet that you feel the same way.
