Yarok’s Feed Your Ends Leave In Conditioner – FULL SIZE! 4 oz. Value $20.40
Yarok is a hair care brand focuses on natural and toxic-free ingredients. This leave-in spray can be used as a detangler, heat protector, and leave-in conditioner. It’s vegan, alcohol-free, paraben-free, and gluten-free.
I used this spray today after washing my hair, and I do enjoy the formula. It’s packed with natural essential oils like Jojoba oil, Grapeseed oil, and Apricot oil. The mist is fine and it absorbed almost instantly leaving my hair moisturized and soft, and it didn’t weigh my hair down. However, this product’s natural scent is probably not my favorite. It faded throughout the day, though.
Henne Organics Luxury Lip Tint in Bare – FULL SIZE! 0.17 fl oz. Value $21
I like that Botanic + Terre let subscribers choose the colors by themselves. I picked Bare, which is a light peachy-brown nude tone, perfect for an everyday look. This lip tint is made of 89% organic ingredients like Coconut oil, Castor seed oil, and Jojoba oil – and it smells like beeswax.
I find this lip tint moisturizing and long lasting, but the tint of this particular color may be too natural for me. I will keep on using it when I’m lounging around at home or when I go for an extremely natural look!
Here’s the swatch of Henne Organics lip tint, I swiped more than five times for this swatch!
Graydon Skincare Face Foam – FULL SIZE! 150ml Value $25
Graydon is a Canadian plant-based skincare brand. Their products are gluten-free, rich in vitamins, flavonoids, antioxidant, and minerals. They are also free of mineral oils, chemicals, parabens, synthetic fragrances, artificial dyes or sulfates.
This face foam came out super soft and creamy! It’s fragrance-free, so if you have sensitive skin, this facial foam should be perfect for you. I like that it’s super gentle on my skin and left my skin feeling clean and refreshed (no dry patches or squeaky feeling). However, I would recommend using a makeup remover before using this facial foam if you use waterproof makeup or sunscreen.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $67, which is not bad for a $40.99 subscription box. I like that the box is bi-monthly so I’m not overloaded with products. I also think that Botanic + Terre definitely focuses their curation on quality over quantity. If you are a fan of natural beauty products and would love to experience new brands from both the U.S. and Canada, this box will be perfect for you.
