The July Box: A Kinder Kind Of Nighttime Beauty Routine
Can you believe this is going to be our seventh box!? Half a year has gone by, and we’ve been thrilled to continue to curate boxes each month filled with vegan and cruelty-free beauty products from companies we love.
This summer has us busier than ever, and as much as we love the work we do, sometimes we get so caught up with our hectic schedules (not to mention growing families!) that it’s easy to forget one of the most essential things about self-care -- good, quality sleep!
Did you know that “beauty sleep” is a real thing? Getting adequate rest defends against wrinkles, under-eye puffiness, and dark circles; and being well-rested keeps your skin hydrated. Researchers in Sweden found that people were viewed as more attractive and sociable when they had a good night’s sleep vs. when they did not. And not only is sleep good for our appearance, but it’s also essential for our mental health.
We believe one of the keys to a good night's sleep is a solid nighttime beauty routine. That’s why, in this month’s box, we’ve included a couple of our favorite bedtime beauty products. We hope you love this collection of goodies as much as we do. If so, please leave comments on our Instagram and tell us what you love most - and don't forget to share this month's lineup with all your friends and family members who could use a few extra Zzz's at night.
Here's the full July box reveal:
Scentuals Sleep Well Mist Spray ($10.63)
This is our absolute favorite when it comes to setting the perfect mood for relaxing and drifting off into la-la land. Spray this mist onto your pillow and in the air around your bed for a great night’s sleep. Chamomile and lavender restore your sense of peace, while ylang-ylang and jasmine inspire sweet dreams. The calming scent is sure to help you unwind after a long day.
Scentuals uses fair trade and all-natural ingredients in all of its products, and its formulated for sensitive skin, so you can rest easy!
Dr. Botanicals Pomegranate Superfood Regenerating Sleeping Mask ($18.99)
Use this mask in combination with the Sleep Well Mist, and you’re in for the best night’s sleep. Massage the overnight treatment on your face before bed and wake up with super hydrated, youthful, and refreshed skin. It smells amazing and is full of healthy antioxidants. It’s no wonder this product gets rave reviews! All of Dr. Botanical's products are natural and free from harmful chemicals such as synthetic perfumes, colorants, and parabens.
Bamboo Toothbrush from Koha Beauty ($3.80)
Arguably the most important part of any nighttime routine is brushing your teeth. Did you know that the American Dental Association recommends replacing your toothbrush every three months? No need to run out to the store for a new one, though -- we’ve got you covered this month with a bamboo toothbrush from Koha Beauty. The toothbrush isn’t your typical plastic one that harms the environment. It’s made from sustainable and biodegradable MOSO bamboo, so you don’t have to feel guilty about tossing it when its time is up. We’ve all been avoiding plastics in our daily lives, whether it be eliminating straws or opting for reusable bags at the grocery store, so why continue to buy plastic toothbrushes!?
The toothbrush has BPA-free nylon bristles with feathered tips, meaning they’re safe for your gums and can get those hard-to-reach spaces. And you can feel good about supporting a responsible company that’s kind to the environment.
ClayBrite White Non-Fluoride Toothpaste from Zion Health ($7.49)
To go along with your new Earth-friendly toothbrush, we’ve got you covered with toothpaste, too. This toothpaste uses minerals to whiten teeth, help heal gums, absorb bacteria, and fight bad breath. Zion Health is a natural health company that specializes in the healing powers of Kanwa Clay Minerals, and they never test their products on animals!
Timeless Organics CoQ10 Age Defying Lotion ($19.99)
This is the first time we’ve included a body lotion in one of our boxes, and we’ve picked a great one for you. The lotion is light and doesn’t feel greasy so you can use it everywhere -- even on your face. Timeless Organics calls this lotion their “miracle in a bottle” for good reason. It’s their signature lotion that reverses the effects of aging with a superior amount of CoQ10 compared to other brands.
Timeless Organics hand-makes it’s products in small batches so that everything is fresh and potent. The company uses hand-picked ingredients that are always natural and organic, and they use recyclable packaging. We can’t wait to hear what you think about this gem of a lotion!
Folly Fire Lipstick in Full House ($15)
For all you makeup lovers out there, we’ve heard you loud and clear! We’ve included a full-size matte lipstick from Folly Fire in the gorgeous bold red shade “Full House.” The highly-pigmented formula stays put and looks perfect all day. The best part is that it’s buildable, so you can add more for desired coverage. Folly Fire is an exciting new company we love, and all their lipsticks are cruelty-free, vegan, gluten-free and good for sensitive skin.
While you settle in for the night we hope the items in this box will help you take a moment for yourself to relax and get a good night’s rest. After all, we need you to be rested so you can go out there each day and slay for animals, for yourself, and for the environment! ❤️
