Subscription boxes are so fun—they’re a surprise gift to yourself when they arrive. And for those of us who love to try different beauty products, they’re a great way to sample new and different items without a dent to the wallet. Launching this month is the new quarterly Beauty and the City Beauty Box, a box of 3-4 products, plus at least one bonus item, created to provide solutions to each customer’s needs, hand-curated based on surveys, with exclusive products which are clean and vegan, cruelty-free, and designed to give you a glow in 5-7 minutes.
I received a complimentary sampling of Beauty and the City’s Beauty products in exchange for this honest review. All opinions are my own.
Beauty and the City’s brand is based on three principles, 1) Care and Repair, 2) Glow, and 3) Beauty in Five. Using vegan cosmetics, they match the lifestyle of users, including non-GMO and cruelty-free ingredients, all while regenerating, restoring, and transforming natural youthful looks. Hand-curated and packed based on the individual customer’s profile, plus other items to complement the principles. The box is filled with exclusive Beauty and the City branded items, plus indie beauty brands which share the same goals. The vegan beauty products are formulated with all-natural ingredients, free of parabens, and gluten-free. The products are for all ages. The foundations are not shade-specific, so they benefit women of all ethnicities and skin tones.
We received a sampling of products one might receive in their Beauty Box. Your box’s products may vary based on your profile and needs:
1. Illuminating Universal Primer
The Exclusive Full-Size Illuminating Universal Primer has an opalescent look out of the bottle, but as it dries, it leaves behind a beautiful glow on your skin. Perfect for all skin tones, it contains a vitamin complex to help your skin have a radiant “glow-up.”
2. Volumizing Lash & Brow Serum
The Full-Size Volumizing Lash & Brow Serum helps promote the look of fuller, thicker lashes, can be used with or without makeup, is clump-free, and contains no silicone. It’s vegan, paraben-free, sulfate-free, cruelty-free, and gluten-free.
3. Bee Vanilla Bean Lip Balm
The Bee Vanilla Bean Lip Balm is made with soothing, all-natural ingredients of beeswax, coconut oil, rosemary extracts and leaves behind a moisturizing feeling with a light vanilla scent and taste.
Each Beauty and the City Beauty Box contains a $120 value and has free shipping. A Black-Owned business founded by Tanille, the Creative Director and Founder of Beauty and the City, she designed the products for women of all ethnicities, and the make-up and skincare can be applied in minutes, giving you more time in your busy schedule.
Beauty and the City donates 1% of sales to charity as part of a cause-driven effort, in addition to supporting indie beauty brands which meet Beauty and the City’s clean, vegan beauty standards and guidelines.
Beauty and the City’s mission statement says it all: “We are a socially conscious beauty brand specializing in a quick glow-up, inspired by the Beauty and the City story. At Beauty and the City, we focus on clean, vegan beauty formulas that achieve results. We are a cause-related beauty brand that is passionate about our causemetic’s mission to do good for our customers and for the environment on purpose.”
