A few weeks ago I got my first ever Kinder Beauty Box! I am a huge fan of subscription boxes and love my FabFitFun and CAUSEBOX. However, I’ve been stressing over the negative environmental impact of all my shopping. In this Kinder Beauty Box review, I’ll explain how this box is a greener option for your body as well as the planet.
Cost: Kinder Beauty Box Review
Since I bought the box, the price of the month-to-month box was raised by $1 because the value of the box increased by $10! I also happened to find a discount on Facebook, so I only paid $15 for over $120 of products! Normally it costs $26 if you pay on a monthly basis, $24/month if you pre-pay for three months and $23/month if you pre-pay for six months. Both plans contain a free bonus box that I am super curious about. So maybe I’ll subscribe for a plan in the future!
The Kinder Beauty Box Promise
Kinder Beauty Box is an activist-founded, cruelty-free, vegan, and clean beauty box. They’re on a mission to make the world a kinder place for animals, for people, and for the planet. Each monthly box is packed with at least $85 worth of hand-picked cosmetics, skincare, hair care products, accessories & more!
If you watched my unboxing video, you’ll know that I got hung up on a few plastics and ingredients that aren’t the best for the planet. It is important to remember that the company is named Kinder Beauty, not Kindest and most Perfect Beauty. They are making great strides and providing people who care healthier, cleaner, and greener products.
My Experience: Kinder Beauty Box Review
So let me tell you about my experience! The Kinder Beauty Box arrived at my doorstep promptly on a rainy day. The delivery driver did the world a favor by not putting the cardboard box in a plastic bag, but they also didn’t put it in a dry place. I received a soaking box and I was worried that it could have damaged what was inside. Luckily, I was wrong!
I unboxed it a few days later and I was super excited to see what was inside. I have already tried most of the products and I love them so far. Let’s talk about the individual products. Please note that any Amazon links below may be affiliates.
The Dirty Lamb – Ultra Night Serum
The Ultra Night Serum by Dirty Lamb costs $52 (1 FL OZ / 30 ML) on their website but can be bought for less on websites such as eBay. This is common with subscription boxes. Some people get them to resell the products and make some money. Technically, it’s a win-win-win for everyone involved. This makes it possible for people to try out a product at a discount. It is evidence that the subscription is truly offering discounted products. And it gives the company some free advertising.
“How it works: Our high antioxidant blend of fatty acid oils will keep skin hydrated through the night. Wheat germ oil is natures power house of vitamin e that will bring liveliness to your night skin. Beautiful sweet dreams are on the way with a hint of lavender, ylang ylang, & orange.
“How to use: Apply 2-3 drops before bed warming between the palms of your hands, patting onto face & neck. Keep the glow going in the morning with Dirty Lamb Ultra Day Serum.
“How often: Nightly.
“Ingredients: Triticum Vulgare (Wheat Germ) Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grapeseed) Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Cannabis Sativa (Hemp Seed) Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Clear Jojoba) Oil, Cananga Odorata (Ylang-Ylang) Oil, Citrus Sinensis (Orange) Oil, & Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil.
Think Dirty App Rating: N/A. Unfortunately Think Dirty app does not have every single product logged. This serum isn’t even sold on Amazon, so it makes sense that it isn’t that well known. This is another thing I love about Kinder Beauty – it helps smaller companies that make green products get recognition! That is also my favorite thing about writing this Kinder Beauty Box Review.
GLOV On-the-Go Makeup Remover Glove
The GLOV on-the-go makeup remover glove costs €13.90. GLOV On-the-go removes makeup only with water!

Their rich and fast-absorbing hand cream deeply nourishes skin with Shea butter and Cocoa butter leaving skin silky smooth. Enriched with Organic Argan, Sweet Almond oil and Aloe for healthy hydrated hands.
Formulation: Rich Cream
Which skin type is it good for?
Recyclable Tube! I did not know that the tube was recyclable. Although just because it says so, doesn’t mean that anyone can recycle it. Depending on the state/country, there are different regulations and accepted recyclable products. This was made in Canada and I assume it is recyclable there. It would be even better if it was in a glass container though!
Think Dirty App Rating: 3 for similar products… This one isn’t registered in the app. But I will be scanning and submitting it! Since similar products have a clean rating, I assume that this one will too.
When Mai Mowrey’s brother was diagnosed with cancer she learned of toxins found in everyday personal care products and their negative affect on our health.
As a result, she looked for alternatives for her family to use and found healthier options were either non-existent or inaccessible; unsatisfied, she set out to change that.
Mai began thoroughly researching. This new knowledge led her to use only top-quality 100% natural ingredients that are undoubtedly safe. She then meticulously formulated many of the wonderful Scentuals products you enjoy today and officially founded Scentuals in 2008.
Today, Scentuals continues to grow internationally while maintaining our “from our family to yours” approach of developing safe products.

What I Love About the Company
Fleur and Bee is a company that does good and they really get it. First of all, they price their products affordably. Secondly, they sell samples! It baffles me that companies that sell hundred dollar products or subscriptions will not create an affordable sample. Fleur and Bee will let you try a sample of ALL THEIR PRODUCTS for $2 plus shipping.

Overall, I love my first Kinder Beauty Box and I look forward to receiving more! I am not the kind of girl who wears a lot of makeup, but I love to dress up and I want to learn to use makeup as well.
