GlossyBox - Cruelty-Free Beauty from Idea Toscana & Neve Cosmetics

I love the entire concept of the GlossyBox: what's more luxurious than receiving a pink little package full of beauty goodies? I can't wait for it to hit my mailbox every month.

I'm also so happy to see that the Italian GlossyBox is experimenting with cruelty-free labels. This month, I was thrilled to find three animal-friendly products in my box.

The black kohl pen is from Neve Cosmetics, an Italian all-vegan, eco-friendly brand that has lots of mineral foundations, blushes, eye shadows and kohl pencils in pretty shades. I love this pencil because it provides that seductive 50s-movie-star appeal - that lasts an entire cocktail party.

Among the surprises of the February box there was also the brand Idea Toscana with shampoo, body lotion and soap from the Prima Spremitura line. All-eco, paraben-free, and no animal testing. Some people say the scent is a bit strong, but I love it. I've brought the body lotion to the gym twice this week and it feels super-luxe to use it after showering, my skin feels soft and reinvigorated. Or is it just the post-Pilates glow?

All in all, I have to disagree with those who complain about the GlossyBox. If they keep the cruelty-free products coming, they've got one happy customer right here.

  2. Dear Christine,
    Just to let you know: this is not how you comment in a blog.

    In case you're new to this whole "blogging" concept, visiting someone else's blog should be about them, not about you. The usual procedure is that you read their post and if you have something to say about it, then you comment. Someone else's blog is not an occasion to spam your own link all over the comments section.

    I'll visit your blog because I visit the blogs of everyone who comments on Coffee and Heels, but I really feel the need to speak up and tell both you and other readers that this is not the correct way to go about commenting on a blog post. This will not win you followers (which is obviously what you're fishing for). All it does is get other bloggers to consider you somewhat annoying. Most bloggers I read would delete a comment like this in the blink of an eye.

    Just so you know.

  3. I dunno whether I should give into glossy box, I am big on beauty products so it shud be right up my street but how many of the products do you use? Is it worth it? X
