I love that Vegan Presence ships their packages at the start of each month. LOVE it!
If you’re new around here (welcome!), Vegan Presence is a monthly subscription box service that features — you guessed it — all vegan-friendly products. Items can range from food to beauty to household essentials. This is by-far one of my favorite subscription boxes! They’re always packaged oh-so-prettily too! 😀
Let’s see what vegan-y goodness they’ve included this month!
LVX Nail Lacquer in “Livid” – Yes! Black nail polish! I’ve gotten two other shades from this brand in other boxes and both times the colors were super light/pastel-y/boring for my taste. So when I saw the familiar black LVX box in my package, I nervously opened it, preparing to find another “beige/peach” hybrid… When I pulled out the all-black bottle, I was so psyched! — Mamma’s goin’ goth! It didn’t take long for me to try it on and now I’m lovin’ it. I feel 16 again. Eh, my hands do anyway. So yeah, love this. Bonus: LVX is vegan (of course), free of toxins/harsh chemicals, and it’s produced right here in the US.
North Coast Organics Death By Lavender Deodorant – This is the cutest little travel sized deodorant and it smells amaaaazing! It’s 100% natural & certified organic. The ingredients include coconut oil, corn starch, and various essential oils. It seriously smells good enough to eat… which is totally weird to say about a deodorant, but f’real. Yum.
Ellovi Lip Butter – Ellovi, we meet again. Last month, I received their body butter in my VP package. I’ve yet to use it (I have a TON of lotion thanks to sub boxes), but it seems pretty nice. This little guy is the lip balm equivalent of the body butter. It’s made with only six ingredients — coconut oil, sunflower wax, hemp oil, shea butter, and macadamia nut butter.
Mama Chia Squeeze in Blackberry Bliss – Okay, this I was NOT a fan of. I wanted to like it… I really did. It’s full of chia seeds — a big source of omega-3s. It’s also vegan, gluten-free, organic, non-GMO, a good source of fiber… BUT… I just couldn’t get past the weird, ‘fish egg-like’ consistency. I’ve never actually eaten fish eggs, but this is totally how I imagine them to
taste feel like. It almost felt like I was eating something that wasn’t meant to be eaten as-is. That said, if I ever get this stuff again, I’ll totally be throwing it in a smoothie… and blending the shit out of it.
Sage Machado “Sage” Sample Vial of Perfume – I don’t normally wear perfume, but I wouldn’t mind using this. It’s all natural and made with essential oils. It contains no icky chemicals, it’s vegan/cruelty-free, and non-GMO. I’m awful at detecting what actual scents are present in perfumes, so I’ll just say “it smells good” and leave it at that. 😉
February will mark Vegan Presence‘s one-year anniversary and they’re offering a little discount to celebrate! For a limited time, you can get a 3 month subscription for $5 off the regular price ($60) — now through February 2014. No code needed. Awesome! If you do sign up, make sure you tell them you were referred by 2littlerosebuds.com! 🙂
