BeRad Cosmetics | Cruelty Free/ Vegan Faux Mink Lash & Natural Adhesive Remover.

First, let me start off by saying how thankful I am for this package. I rarely buy lashes, because I never use them. Now, I am stocked up for a while!

About the brand:

Be Rad Cosmetics is all about living your life as fully and consciously as possible.”

Be Rad is a cruelty free, vegan, and mindful beauty brand. Who, if I do say so myself, makes so stunning lashes.

Each pair is $20 and there are 4 different styles. My favorite is “Boss Babe All Day.”

Here they are on my eyes here!

And here!

You can purchase them, and the three other last styles, Here.

The lashes are easy to apply, keep in mind I rarely wear lashes. (Thank god there was some duo lash glue in the package!!)

The band isn’t too wide, but it isn’t too thin either.

Is $20 steep? I think so ( if it wasn’t for their other products) But, compared to similar products it is on par as far as price goes.

With the next Be Rad product we will be discussing, these lashes will last ages.

The Lash Adhesive Remover

Be Rad came out with a NATURAL lash adhesive remover!

It cost $25 and comes with 2-10mL bottles. One of the wash the second the rinse.

This may seem like a small amount of product, however, you only need one-two sprays of each!

The remover is made with essential oils that are plant based. Completely free of harsh toxins and chemicals.

Before

As you can see, there is a ton of build up on my lashes.

So first I sprayed them with the wash. The let it sit for 4 minuets.

Then I peeled the Adhesive off with tweezers. It came off the first lash super easy. Not so much the second.

Once I got the adhesive off, I sprayed it with the rinse, the them sit for a bit, then stored them away!

After

All that build up is gone.

I will be honest it took a bit on the second lash. But, it did come off.

If I wore lashes more often this is 100% a system I would repurchase.

Final thoughts?

I love the lashes, when I wear them these will definitely be my go to lashes!

The adhesive remover is a fantastic idea, and I will definitely use it. If I get more in to lashes I will purchase it once I run out. You can get it Here, for your self!

I am very much so looking forward to see what Be Rad has in store for the future. They are a cruelty free, vegan, and mindful brand. What isn’t to fall in love with?

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box | Blossoming Beauty

Hi guys.

It is storming so bad here. I wish it would storm at night rather than during the day. I love stormy nights. Stormy days just make me want to be lazy and sleep all day.

Which is why I am doing another unboxing rather than one of the other posts I had planned.

Akar Skin Duo $17

This little duo came in the cutest bubble wrap, it’s baby pink and the bubbles are hearts.

The larger sample is a toning mist and the smaller one is an eye serum. I have never tried anything from this brand so I am very intrigued. Especially in the eye serum.

Anointment Natural Skincare Rose Toner $7.50

This little toner has rose hydrosol and witch hazel. I am excited to try it, I love spray toners.

Dirty Lamb Coffee Scrub $12

This is the cutest thing. I love lambs! The scrubs smells just like coffee. Body scrubs are some of my favorite things. I can’t wait to give it a try.

Franklin and Whitman Face Mask $24.95

I need to start using these powder masks more, I am really starting to pile them up. This one is made with raw cacao, tumeric, and activated charcoal. It sounds super cleansing.

Glamour Doll Makeup Black Gel liner $2.99

You can’t use a black liner that is inexpensive, cruelty free and vegan? The only glamour doll makeup products that I have tried are the Lisa Frank ones so I am excited to try more.

That is this months Box. A ton of awesome products!!!

What is your favorite Glamour Dolls Makeup item?

Vegan Cuts Makeup Box | Springtime Bliss

Hi everyone!

We are going to start formatting posts a bit differently to make them a bit more personable and fun. We are going to start each post with a random fact about me, or things I like, or something I learned the day I wrote the post!

So, again. Hi everyone! I am Manda and I absolutely LOVE frozen grapes.

…and the Vegan Cuts Makeup Box! It comes quarterly and I believe is around $35. It is usually 4 full sized makeup items and one “tool” item.

This quarter is “Springtime Bliss”. It is finally spring 2018 here, and I am so ready for it and over the cold.

Eco Minerals Mineral Bronzer “Holiday” $29

The first item in the box is a semi matte loose bronzer. For some reason I never use my loose bronzers, but I am going to try to make a point to! There is a nice amount of product and there is a sealable sifter in the jar. Which is important.

I think the shade might work pretty well for me. As you can see, I am rather fair. It doesn’t seem too insanely pigmented, so I think I will be able to work with this.

Emani Vegan Cosmetics Organic Soy Infused Mascara “Black” $20

The tube of this mascara is really sleek and pretty. Of course, it is going to end up looking terrible in my possession, but I love the presentation. I love trying new mascaras. I will definitely up date you all on this one once I give it a try. Oh, and this mascara is also supposed to be a lash treatment.

Real Her “I feel Beautiful” EyeShadow Palette $28

Real Her is a real hit or miss brand for me. Sometimes I love the items, sometimes I hate them. I have another Real Her palette the “Be your own kind of beauty” and I really dislike it. It was all Shimmer and satins that we’re a bit more than Satin. It creased on me so bad and took AGES to blend.

This Palette, however, actually has mattes!! And the formula feels much different.

The shades in this one look really pretty, and definitely like a palette I would reach for a lot.

I really like the color palette you get to work with. The light shades don’t swatch too nicely, but I will have to see how they perform on the eyes.

Thrive Causemetics Glossy Lip Mark “Joann” $26

I have tried a few things from Thrive. I really love their cream blushes and they look great on the lips. Needless to say, I am really excited about this Glossy Lip Mark. It is definitely a shade I will use as well.

I think it is going to look beautiful on the lips.

Terre Mère Cosmetics Blending Brush $29

I love getting brushes in subscription boxes. Especially when they are pricey like this. I think it’s pricey anyway. Can’t be mad at a good blending brush!

That is it for the box!

I need to know y’all what kind of posts would you like to see!?

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box April 2018 | Lavender Dreams

It’s time for my favorite Beauty box of the month! I’m always excited when I receive my vegan Cuts Box, because it has never let me down. Let’s get into this months Box.

Mr. B’s Necessities Lavender Facial Mist and Toner $17

I love Lavender it is my favorite scent and it is extremely relaxing. I am actually burning a Lavender incense as I type this. I think this Toner will be a great right before bed skin care step.

Yes to Carrots Facial Wipes $6

I love the yes to brand. Especially the tomatoes line. I haven’t tried many of their carrot products, but I am sure I will enjoy these. I love receiving facial wipes in boxes, sense they are something I will always need.

Derma E Microdermabrasion Scrub $8

I have tried this scrub before and I love it. It is a fantastic scrub, with just the right amount of scrub to it. This is a nice sample size as well!

Crazy Rumors Hubiskiss Lip Balm “Pearl” $5

I have really enjoyed the balms from crazy rumors that I have tried previously. It is finally starting to get warmer here, which means I will be breaking out the tinted lip balms.

This one looks like a really pretty pinky peach. It smells very nice as well!

Tree to Tub soapberry shampoo “relaxing lavender ” $4

This line is made with wild soapberries. They also included a soapberry! You can use it to clean your hands or face and see it lather. I think I am going to have to review this shampoo and experience washing my hands with a soapberry. This is the first time I have ever heard of a soap berry!

Orglamix Cream Highlighter “Illume” $18

This is the only product I am disappointed by. The packaging is really pretty. But, the product just feels like an oil slick on my skin creating a sheen.

I am going to have to try it before I decide, but I’m not to excited about it right now.

That is it for this months Box!

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box March 2018|A beautiful masterpiece

I really do enjoy Vegan Cuts. It is $25ish a month and you get 4-5 full or sample sized vegan, Cruelty Free, and usually clean beauty products.

Youth to People Kale + Green Tea Spinach Vitamins age prevention cleanser $4 Value

“Lightweight cleanser all-in-one makeup remover, face wash, and toner”

I have seen this brand around, but haven’t ever really heard anything about them. The ingredients seem great. I am going to give it a try and let you all know how it works out.

Karma Organic Nail Polish Remover Wipe $1 Value

“Made with soy bean oil and relaxing lavender “

I love little nail polish remover wipes like this for travel. I want some that work well. If these do I think I’ll order a whole box. I am going to be traveling a lot coming up!

Dr’s Remedy Nail Polish “Passion Purple” $17

The shade is pretty. I will probably wear it. I am sure if I don’t I have a friend who will. Can always toss it in with a gift 🤷🏼‍♀️

Cosmedica Skincare Rose Gold Serum $21.95

I wonder if this could be a dupe for that one super hyped serum in the pretty purple bottle! If this Serum makes your skin glow like it is meant to I am going to use it a ton this summer.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar Metallic “Synth” and lip tar brush $36

I am in to the Rose gold metallic lip thing. I thought I’d hate metallic lips, but I’m sort of ok with them. I also don’t think I’ve owned a single lip brush until now, so that’s nice.

I do love the shade. But, the application process just seems like such a hassle. I’ll try it, but I’m not sure how often I’ll actually use it.

That’s it for this months Box, I am not disappointed!!!

Jan & Feb 2018 Beauty Empties | it’s a lot..

I have a ton of empties piled up. I haven’t been in a good place lately, so I have been slacking very badly. I am trying to get better.

Makeup

MAC Fix +: if MAC was Cruelty Free, not selling where testing is required by law. I would 100% repurchase. But, I have heard they are making the change to pull out of these places!

Jordana Fabuliner: I have liked this liquid liner for a long time. Inexpensive and works well. Have repurchased.

Becca Backlight Primer: I loved this Primer. I think I will be purchasing the full size!

Too Faced Sketch Marker: this and the Jordana one are very similar. I think I will just stick with the Jordana one.

Beauty Without Cruelty Mascara: The more I’ve used this mascara the more I have loved it. I would consider repurchasing it again once I get through the ones I have.

Sephora Beauty Amplifier Setting Spray: It worked alright, but the Sephora house brand isn’t cruelty free, so I will not repurchase.

L’Oréal Hydra Perfect Loose Powder: works well as a setting powder, but it isn’t cruelty free. Too bad though, this used to be my favorite powder.

YSL Touché Eclate: lives up to the hype. But, it sadly isn’t cruelty free so I won’t be repurchasing it.

Pür Blending Sponge: these are the best blending sponges…. will not repurchase.

In shower products

(Please keep in mind my grandma stock piles these kinds of products so i end up with a ton of random brands, can’t tell Granny no!)

Tone Radiant Glow Body Wash: I wish all brands were cruelty free. This body wash is so inexpensive and works so well! But, I will not purchase.

St.Ives Nourish and Soothe Body wash: My Mom picked this out because she thought it would help my eczema. It did soothe it during flair ups. But, I man searching for cruelty free alternatives.

Pantene Sheer Volume Conditioner: Smelled nice and did it’s basic job. Is not cruelty free so I will not repurchase it.

L’Oréal Color Vibrancy Shampoo: I literally have no opinion on this. Will not repurchase.

Garnier Sleek & Shine: I used to love this line before I went cruelty free. It smells nice and works well. To bad the brand ethics aren’t up to par.

Face Masks

SNP Animal Otter Aqua Mask: this Mask was cute, but I don’t remember it doing anything. I don’t think it is cruelty free, so no thank you.

Biobelle #iwokeuplikethis: I actually really liked this mask! I have another and will be doing a full review so stay tuned!

Salis Skincare Blackhead Removal Mask: I got thins in a vegan Cuts box. Unfortunately it didn’t work the few times I tried it. I will not purchase.

Sephora Green Tea Face Mask: I actually loved this mask. A friend got it for me for Christmas! Sephora needs to make their in house brand more ethical 🙄 I won’t repurchase it until they do so.

Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Detox Eye Patch: Sadly, these did nothing for my eyes. Will not purchase.

Tony Moly Avocado Mask: I don’t really remember this mask so I guess it was too great. Will not repurchase.

Skincare

Belli Anti-Blemish Facial Wash: I love this face wash a will repurchase it! I will probably pick up more from the brand as well.

Wet N’ Wild Micellar Water: I actually really disliked this micellar water, it burned my eyes pretty badly. Will not repurchase.

Soap by Riggs Black Raspberry and Vanilla: I love the formula, I just wasn’t a fan of the scent. Will purchase in different scents.

Box Naturals Rose Wipes: I used the full box but didn’t want to put that in the bin, so I put in an empty packet instead. I think I am going to repurchase the lavender instead of rose. I like the scent better.

Cotton Rounds: I am actually looking to purchase some reusable cotton rounds. Any suggestions?

Ole Henriksen Oil Control Toner and Moisturizer: I love this line. I want to research their cruelty free status more. If they are up to par I will gladly repurchase.

Clairsea Charcoal Exfoliant: I already repurchased! I have talked about his scrub before. I love it!

Random products

Batiste Dry Shampoo Original: I love this Dry Shampoo, but I want to try something new. What is your favorite?

Degree Motion Sense: I started having a reaction to my Schmittds Deodorant:,( I had to grab one quickly. Would not repurchase.

PYT Argon Oil: works great, but the price is a bit high. Will not repurchase.

Aquaphor: I need a better tattoo goo type product. I’m working on my sleeve so I need it. But, don’t want to repurchase this.

Wallflower “Leaves”: I am still slowly working through these. Love the scent but will not repurchase.

Lavender Essential Oil: This one is from Mel’s Candles. I will be repurchasing!

What is your favorite essential oils and incense??

Thank you so much for reading💜

That is it for my empties!

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Feb ‘18 | Compassionate Beauty

I had a completely different post planned for today, but I feel just terrible. My throat feels like I swallowed knives and my entire body is sore. Needless to say I didn’t feel like putting on any makeup today. But, yesterday my favorite subscription box arrived in the mail! So, I decided to do an unboxing.

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box is a box of 4-5 Cruelty Free and vegan beauty products, I believe it is around $30ish a month.

This months theme is compassionate beauty. The card is covered in hearts. Ya know, because of Valentine’s Day.

Let’s look inside.

Jivi Exfoliating Face Wash “Lemongrass” $12

An all natural Exfoliating face wash. This arrived at the perfect time because I just finished up my current face wash. I will be doing a review on this item. After reading a bit about the company, they offer some fantastic things- to the customer and the community.

Luscious Cosmetics Pout Maker “Perky” $12

This months makeup item is a lip crayon. If I am going to use a more traditional lip stick, it’s probably going to be in a crayon format.

The shade is one I tend to gravitate towards, so I am sure I will get a ton of use out of it.

Derma-E Hydrating Night Cream $7.50

I thought it was so funny I received this product. I just watched a YouTube video and the girl (who I can’t remember) was raving about this night cream. I am very excited to try it.

Śaiva Naturals Relaxing Foot Balm $17.50

I don’t think I have ever used a foot balm. But, I may apply it tonight and pop on some fuzzy socks. Maybe it’ll help me feel relaxed and my muscles won’t hurt as badly. It has a citrusy scent, which smells fantastic.

Art Naturals Konjac Sponge Set $10

I also needed a new facial sponge!! Two sponges will last me a while, so I was very excited to see something that is an essential for me.

$59 Value for only around $30. Great box this month VC!

Have you tried any of the products in this months Box yet?
