Dry BUT Delish!^^
These Brownie Cookies Were Okay.
I Think I Was Expecting Too Much; The Container Promised Too Much.
Did They Melt In My Mouth as Promised? No.
But Were They Yummy? Perfect Little Snackies? Yes.

Overall I Think They Tasted Good.
Not Better, Nor Worse Any Other Regular, Chocolate, Non-Vegan Cookie I've Tasted.

I Think They Would Prove Amazing Coupled With Hot Chocolate!^^

Product: Cookie Shots; Bite-Size Brownie Biscuits 

The Chocolate Was Not Too Bitter, It Was Sweet. And The Cream Tasted Like Liquefied Sugar.
My Opinion Of This Egg, Is That It Tasted Okay.
It Gave Me a Good Easter-Spirit Though, Having an Easter Egg To Nibble On. ^^

Company: Consider It Chocolate
Product: Cream Egg

 Sweet-Potato Crisps
These Crisps Were Delightful. :)
They Tasted Peppery and Paprika-ish, And Had a Sweet, Tangy Taste To Them Once I Chewed.
I'm Guessing That Last Part, Is Owed to The Fact That They're Made Out Of Sweet-Potatoes. ^^

Some Crisps Aren't Fullfilling On Their Own, And You End Up Just Chain-Eating A Full Bag, Just To Savour Some Flavour.
This Was Definitely Not Like That.
They Were All Excellent Little Taste-Explosions As Soon As I Put Them In My Mouth.

So Even Though It Came In a Small Bag, I Think It Could Last For a Little Longer Than You'd Expect, From a Small Bag Of Chips. :)

Company: Hectares
Sweet Potato Crisps - Red Onion & Black Pepper

Vegan-Sausage Out Of This World
This Was Pretty Yummy; Germany Sure Knows How To Make Sausages; 
VEGAN Ones Too! :D
It Had Those Iconic German Spices,
And Didn't Taste Too Much Like It Was a Replacement Filler. 
Note To Self; Don't Cook It As Long Next Time, I Went a Bit Overboard And It Was Almost Burnt xD

Company: Wheaty
Product: Spacebar - Red Hot Chilli Pepper

Soy-Bean Coffee

I Utilized This In a Cup-Cake Recipe;

The Product Itself Didn't Smell Like Coffee Much,
But It Did Look Like Regular Chilled Coffee.

Company: Soypresso
Product: Soyspresso, Chilled Coffee

VEGAN Inspirational DECOR

These Two Products; Refrigerator Magnet and Sticker, Is Courtesy Of The Subscription Box Company Themselves.

The Magnet Is Big, And Says; 
VEGAN For The Animals.
It's Supercute; I Immediately Placed It On My Fridge ^^
Although It's Thin, It's a Strong, Well-Functioning Magnet. Very Happy About This! SUUUPERCute!^^

The Sticker Says;
Choose Compassion Go Vegan.
It Proved To Be a Strong, Well-Made, Well-Functioning Sticker.
I Gave It An Honourary Placement On My Lap-Top.
Looks GREAT! ^^

These Two Products Will Surely Brighten My Day Every Time I See Them.
And Will Continue Inspire My Choice To Go Vegan. Making It Fun And Sparkly. ^^

Contained 4 Items

Regal Perfume

This Perfume Is SO Nifty! :D

The Top Of The Bottle Is a Tiny Roll-On Applicator, Leaving The Task Of Perfuming Up Easy-Breezy! ^^

It Smells Devine; Truly Ageless!
I Think This Perfume Would Suit Any Age-Range! ^^ 

Company: Harvey Prince Organics
Product: Perfume Fragrance: Ageless

Double Fruity Eye-Liner!
I Have Been Wishing For Some 100% Pure Make-Up In My VeganCuts Box For a While Now;
I My Wish Was Finally Granted! :D

This Eye-Liner Is a Double Trouble! :D
It's Got TWO Colours To Choose From; One On Each End Of The Pencil.
And Although They Might Look Like They'd Be Bleak Colours, I Swear; On, They Transform Into Grey And Black!^^

The Stick Itself Is Sturdy, Thick And Reliable.
This Is Obviously a High Quality Product. ^^

It's Creamy Texture Makes It Easy To Apply; NO Scratching Or Stabbing Your Eye Out To Get This Piece Of Fabulous On Your Eyelid!^^
And Despite Of It's Creamy Texture, And Ease To Apply, It Does Not Smear Easily OR Respond Negatively To Sweat/Natural Skin And Eye Moisture!^^

This Is A DEFINITE Favourite With Me And My Make-Up Kit From Now On! YAAY! :D

Company: 100% Pure
Product: Fruit Pigmented Dual-Ended Creamstick; Chocolate/Champagne


This Product Worked Wonders On The Tips Of My Hair; Which Has Been Slightly Worn By Bleaching It.

It Nourished It And Got It Back To Feeling Healthy And Natural Once More.
And The Product Smelled Nice And Relaxing As Well; It Reminded Me Of How Calming Essential Oil-Massage Smells. Very Nice. :)

The Consistency Of The Product Also Reminded me Of Above Mentioned Oils. But It Wasn't Sticky Or Difficult To Rinse Off Of My Hands After Applying, Or Anything.

I Wouldn't Recommend Putting This Onto Hair That Isn't Dry; Cause Then It Just Ends Up Looking Oily. But For Slit-Ends And Dry Hair; This Is a Wonder-Serum!^^

Company: Tara Smith
Product: Base Coat Serum

Wonderful Face Of An English Daisy

I Was Pleasantly Surprised With This Product.
I Was Afraid It Might Be To Heavy On The Hemp-Smell, Which Gives Me a Gag-Reflex.
But It Wasn't. It Smelled Quite Nice Actually.
Just like Wild, Floral, Daisies.
I Was Impressed By That. :)

As To Ability To Moisturize; It Did An Okay Job.
Some Parts Of My Face Was Left a Bit Dry.

This Is Now a Favorite Of Mine; Perfect For My Daily Moisturizer-Make-Up-Routine!^^

Company: The Wonder Seed
Product: Facial Cream - English Daisy

VeganCuts | BEAUTY Box | January 2016

This VeganCuts Beauty Subscription Box January 2016 Edition
Contained 6 Items

Vegan Lashes!
Although The "Ink" Was Visibly a Deep Black When I Tried It On a Piece Of Paper, I Found It Was a Lengthy Process To Get That Onto My Lashes; For It To Actually Be Noticeable.

They Get an A+
For Their Gentle Feel However:
It Didn't Sting, Or Bother My Eyelid, Nor Cornea At All.
I'll Continue Testing It Out When I Do My Make-Up.

Company: Earth Lab Cosmetics Product: Vegan Lash Mascara 

Face Cleansing Oat Meal?
This Product, Which Comes In Dry, Grain Form, Is To Be Mixed With Water/Liquid by Hand.
I Chose Water.
It Smells Like Oatmeal/Flour, Which Was Very Unoffensive And Calming. It Doesn't Take Long To Prepare It, As All Dry Grain Clumps Are Easy To Mix Out.

I Was Pleasantly Surprised At How Moisturizing/Soft/Creamy The Mixed Substance Became. It Was Easy To Apply; It Didn't Dribble Down My Neck At All, After Being Applied To The Face.
As I Mentioned, The Smell Was Calming And Unoffensive, And The Mixture Didn't Sting Or Irritate My Skin Whatsoever.

This Seems Like a Really Good Alternative To Going Over Your Face With Soap After Having Used Make-Up-Remover, Or To Cleanse Oily Skin; As It Cleansed Away Everything Thoroughly, And Rinsed Off Almost Immediately Afterwards.

I Also Noticed That The Product Encouraged My Skin To Naturally Moisturize Itself Afterwards; Leaving It Soft And Comfortable. Not Dry And Not Oily.

UPDATE: After Some Time After Using This Product; My Skin Had a Slight Freak Out.
It Got Super Uncomfortable; Oily, Breaking Out, Feeling All Oil-Sweatty. It Was Just. NO.

Turns Out, This Product Works WONDERS On Any Non, Face, Skin. Clearing Up Zits And Leaving A Radiant Skin! ^^

Company: Wabi-Sabi Botanicals
Product: SAGGA 'Heavenly Realm' Charcoal + Rose Cleansing Grains

Moisturizer Time!
Î Tried This Moisturizer, And I Gotta' Say; It's WAAY Too Perfumed For Me.
It's Got a Heavy, Very Potent Smell, That Reminds Me Of Synthetic Truck-Stop Candy.
I Am Not a Fan.
But I Gave It a Go Anyways; Which Resulted In an Almost Immediate Need To Remove It From My Skin. I Experienced a Slight Burning/Stinging Sensation In Parts Of My Face.
Which, Was Alarming, So I Took It Off, Just Moments After Applying.

Company: Aubrey Organics  
Product: Revitalizing Therapy Moisturizer w/Rosa Mosqueta Rose Hip Seed Oil

Body-Butter Time!

I REALLY Like The Way This Product Smell1^^
It Smells Like Freshly Squeezed Lemons!^^
(Not Lime, Not a Fan Of Lime o.O)

The Consistency Of The Body-Butter Was Surprisingly Thick; And As I Applied It To My Skin, I Noticed Immediately How Creamy And Sticky It Was; Which Made Me Wonder If It Would Be Difficult To Apply Amply.

It All Worked Out Well However!^^
This Body Butter Is ASTONISHINGLY Great For Skin Moisture! :D
The Winter Has Left My Arms/Hands In Dire Need Of Moisture, And I've Woefully Neglected Consistently Moisturizing Them; Leaving The Skin Dry And Irritated. Having To Apply Moisturizer-Cream 24/7 Drives Me a Little Crazy I'll Admit. o.O

THIS Really Did Wonders For That Situation! :D
The Natural Oils In The Body-Butter Absorbed Into My Skin, And Left It Naturally Moisturized Even When Dry! :D


Company: Lashea Butter Whips Product: Essential Body Scrub

Gentle Cleanse

This Product Has a VERY Potent Smell.
It Was Waay To Overwhelming For My Taste.
It's Not That It Smells Bad, It Smells Like Natural Rose Scented, But It's Just So Heavy.
It did an Okay Job at Cleansing Away Make-Up Residue.

Company: The Jojoba Company Product: Gentle Cleansing Balm

Youth Potion!
This Is Supposed To Be Spritzed On After Using The Above Mentioned Product. However, The Smell Was So Overwhelming. That I Opted Not To.
If I Try It Together Later; I'll Leave an Update.

Company: The Jojoba Company Product: Youth Potion

WHITE Chocolate VEGAN Style! :D

Normally, I'm Not Much Fond Of White Chocolate.
The Stingy Dairy Flavour White Chocolate Usually Has, Never Really Left Me a Fan Of It.
So Imagine My Surprise, When I Tried This VEGAN White Chocolate, And My Tastebuds Went; "YES, We Like." :D
My Mother Has Always Been a HUGE Fan Of White Chocolate As a Whole, And She Loved It As Well! ^^

But When You Read How It Was Made,
You'll See Why It's So Delish:

Handmade All The Way Through, Every Step Of The Way!

I Really Enjoyed It ^^

Company: Pernigotti
Product: Gianduia Chocolate

An Alternative To Milky Hearts
These Tasted Very Bitter.
And I'm a Fan Of Dark Chocolate. But The Sour, Bitter Taste Of These, Was Not My Kind Of Snack.

Product: Organic Dairy Free Alternative To Milk Chocolate Hearts

British Chocolate Is Tha BOMB!^^

I Just Received This Chocolate Yesterday, As a Part Of My VeganTuck Chocoholic Box.
It Tastes SO Good! Just Like Kinder Bueno! Which Has Been One Of My Favourite Chocolates, So I'm Positively STOKED To Find a VEGAN Alternative That Tastes Just as Delish!^^
