In my October review, I got to announce that I am now an affiliate with Glowing Beets. Glowing Beets is a monthly subscription box of non-toxic and cruelty-free products. I have been a customer for 2 years, and because I love it so much I wanted to share it with you all! If you want to sign up for a subscription, you can use my code “TLM10” at checkout for 10% off your first box. This is a 100% honest review of the products that I received in the November box.
Plaine Products Shampoo & Conditioner
The first products up are the Plaine Products Shampoo & Conditioner in Rosemary Mint Vanilla. I absolutely LOVE the packaging of these two products! They came in little 2.5 oz metal bottles. Love the idea of cutting down on single use plastic bottles by refilling these. They also refill the full size products. These products are vegan, cruelty-free, biodegradable, sulfate free, and color and kid safe. These two contain lots of natural and organic ingredients. The smell is amazing! It’s a very clean and refreshing scent of Rosemary, Mint, and Vanilla.
Ok so performance-wise, I have used the shampoo & conditioner once (I will use it again after the holidays). After washing my hair, conditioning it, and letting it air dry, my hair felt super dry for the most part. Then behind my ears on the underside of my hair it did not get it clean. I have had this issue with a different brand of natural shampoo before. For the moment, I was not impressed with the performance. I know some products your body needs to adjust to and kind of balance itself out, so I will definitely use the entire bottle of each product and update you all!
Abbey Lane Farm Lip Balm in Chocolate Mint
So buttery! This stuff is so moisturizing. I love really rich and melty lip balms, and this one is just that. I got the chocolate mint flavor which is very refreshing. The chocolate part is not super overpowering which I like. This lip balm is also a good mix of natural and organic ingredients. This lip balm contains beeswax. If you love buttery lip balms, check out Abbey Lane Farm.
Graydon Face Glow
Graydon Face Glow is a tinted primer and illuminator. Man this stuff is illuminating! I put this product on under my makeup as a full face primer, and it gave me such a glow. I like to glow, so I loved it! The scent of it is almost a powder fresh vanilla type scent to me (there is no baby powder in it). I like that it isn’t a floral scent. I also love that the ingredients list has lots of fruit extracts.
My one drawback to this product is that it is tinted. This product would work for me during the summer after I get some sun. I cannot use this during the winter though because it made my face darker than my neck and body. So I will pull this product back out in the summer!
St. Alabaster La Belle Vie Soy Wax Candle
Ok so I am a candle-aholic, and was so excited to see a candle in the box! Bonus this candle has a wooden wick which makes it crackle and have that cozy glow. The candle has a pretty strong scent. It is a yummy smelling citrus scent of pineapple, rosemary, and lime. The packaging is a glass jar with metal lid, and a paper with the Glowing Beets coupon code that can be put in your garden and it will grow. Love that idea of making the paper have multiple purposes. The other great thing I read about this company is that you can take your empty candle jars to “Belle Vie” to recycle them. So cool to see companies cut down on waste.
This was a great box to get to try new things, even if they aren’t the best fit for me. I love trying new things! I love the mix of body care, home care, and beauty in this box. Thanks so much for reading my honest thoughts about the November Glowing Beets box! Have you tried any of the products from this box?
