Gourmet Body Treats is small, family-owned beauty/cosmetics company dedicated to providing quality products that are not only effective, but also 100% cruelty-free.
They offer a large selection of natural body care products and cosmetics including mascara, lipstick, body scrubs, soaps, and more. They even have biodegradable pencil sharpeners (I didn’t even know those existed!). All of their products are vegan, cruelty free, kid-safe, and made right here in the USA (Texas, to be exact.) To show how seriously they take the whole “all natural” thing, they actually have a list of ingredients that they’ll never use posted right on their website. When it comes to using pure, plant-based ingredients, they don’t mess around!
The monthly Gourmet Body Treats Beauty Box is a newer offering that gives you a chance to affordably sample some of their great products. It’s just $19.99/month (shipped!) and includes 2-3 full size items, as well as a few samples. (Boxes are also available to Canada and internationally for an additional charge.)
I was recently sent their July box for review… Let’s have a look!
(I didn’t take a photo of the outer box because it got rained on a bit and I kinda ripped it while trying to get it open. Whoops.)
July’s box featured products for your hands and feet. The info card listed everything I’d find inside.
White Ginger Hand & Foot Scrub – I used this in the shower today and it smells sooo nice. Very warm & gingery. Ingredients include organic cane sugar, tacuma butter, white tea & ginger extracts, and essential oils. The scent might make you wanna sprinkle a bit on some cinnamon toast, but it’s probably best to stick to your hands & feet. 😉
Aloe & Rose Hand & Foot Cream – This is a nice, light lotion formulated to bring life to dull, dry skin. I used it on my feet and it seemed to have a bit of a cooling sensation, so I used it on my legs too (is that allowed?). It absorbed pretty easily and wasn’t greasy at all. The rose essential oil gives it a very floral scent, so I wouldn’t recommend this if you don’t like to “smell (like) the roses”. 😉
Nail & Cuticle Treatment – How pretty is this oil?! I totally didn’t expect to see all of those rose petals (?) floating around in there. This is a blend of oils including argan and coconut, as well as various natural extracts. It hydrates, protects, and strengthens your nails and cuticles using natural vitamins and antioxidants. After a couple months of not biting my nails, I’ve sadly started back up ( 🙁 ) and they look awful. Maybe I can get them healthy again with this and encourage myself to kick the habit once again? I miss my girly nails!
Samples – 4 different samples were included: Vegan Hydrating Lipstick in Orchid, Hydrating Liquid Bronze, Cuticle Softener & Remover, and Lemon Mint Cleanser. There was also a nail file, which you can see in the photo below.
I couldn’t really do a cost breakdown on each item, because I wasn’t able to find them all on their site. However, I’d say this box was definitely worth $19.99 (especially since shipping is included!). Handcrafted, all natural products can be expensive, so getting to sample so many in one monthly box is a great deal.
