I have been eyeing up The Pip Box ever since I came across the brand over on Twitter so when they asked if I would like to review one of their boxes I basically jumped for joy! The Pip Box is a monthly subscription box promoting cruelty free beauty brands. It was named after the founder’s dog Pippa which I think is such a cute idea. I spent the whole of January avoiding any spoilers but now that I’ve been given the chance to try all the products, I thought it’s about time that I talk about my thoughts on the box.
Medusa Witch Lash Mascara, Black Noir – It’s extremely rare that I come across a cruelty free friendly mascara and immediately love it until now. I don’t know about anyone else but as soon as I am gifted a mascara, I’m usually opening it and finding out the deal with the wand. It’s one that reminds me off Urban Decay’s Prevision Mascara, however, this one is brilliant for those working on a budget. It’s super black and makes my eyelashes look ten times longer than they actually are. If you are wanting to know what I’ve been using this past month then it’s more than likely been this.
Optiat Coffee Scrub, The Hungover – I’m probably the only ‘beauty’ blogger that hasn’t tried a coffee scrub but I’ve heard good things. I usually reach for Lush’s Rub Rub Rub Body Scrub if I ever need to exfoliate my skin so this has been a refreshing change. I love using it in the mornings once a week as it makes me feel a lot more prepared for the day. After moisturising my skin, that’s when I tend to notice a difference. In all honesty, I think I do need to keep trying the product to decide whether I love it or not though.
Balm Balm Face Mask, Hibiscus – This is one of the two brands that I’ve heard of before so I was really excited to give this a try. I managed to get a friend involved to have a face mask night and seen as it is in powder form it’s extremely different to my usual face mask. To use, you mix it with little water and leave on your face for 10 minutes. It left both of our skins feeling super soft and nourished. It also smells amazing!
Lucky Cloud Skincare Lip Butter, Vanilla – Anyone who knows me will understand that I love a good lip butter but I am usually quite specific when it comes to the brand. I’m usually the one stocked up with The Body Shop’s Shea Lip Butter but if you are looking for another alternative then I highly recommend this. I love how thin and small the packaging is so it’s been super easy to just put in my pockets and have it around while I’m at work. The scent is on another level and I usually get away with wearing this without any lipstick because it’s so intense.
Green Frog Botanic Body Wash, Rose & Neroli – I’ve been wanting to try Green Frog products for such a long time now so you can imagine how excited I was to find this body wash hidden within the box. The scent smells so fresh and quite Autumnal. It’s made from natural organic Himalayan soapberries that helps treat dry skin conditions such as eczema. Lucky enough, my eczema hasn’t been too bad recently, however, I have noticed that my skin feels a lot more nourished after I used this in the shower.
Overall, I am in love with The Pip Box and I’ve actually subscribed to start receiving them every month. You can subscribe to the box here. One of things that I love about this beauty box is that 50p of every sale is donated to the Animal Free Research UK charity. I think it’s definitely worth the price as you are able to try and test out cruelty free brands and receive a couple of discounts if you really enjoy their products.
