FeelUnique The Vegan Beauty Edit Review
Dr Botanicals Moroccan Rose Superfood Facial Oil, 0.5 oz – Estimated Value $26.60 (buy the full-size version for $53.19)
If using facial oils makes you nervous, this would be a great one to try- it isn’t greasy and the texture actually reminds me a lot of a thick serum that sank into my skin quickly. I am a little bummed that such a pricy facial oil would have Benzyl Alcohol and fragrance near the top of the ingredients list though. Also, I *think* this is half the size of the full-size version. The full-size is 30 mL and 1.01 oz, but if you look at the box you’ll see this says “15 ml, 1.01 oz.” Not too sure what happened there, but I don’t think this is a full ounce.
Inika Vegan Lipstick in Pink Poppy, Full-Size! – Retail Value $20.67 (AUD $29)
This lipstick is super nourishing thanks to the Certified Organic Avocado, Jojoba, and Argan oils that this is made with it. This definitely won’t last as long as a matte lipstick, but if you don’t mind reapplying this is super comfortable to wear.
Cowshed Knackered Cow Relaxing Bath & Shower Gel, 3.38 oz – Estimated Value $7.98 (buy the full-size version for $23.94)
This shower gel smells heavenly- it is a blend of lavender and eucalyptus that instantly soothes my mind when I breathe it in. I like that this can be used to soap up and get clean or as a bubble bath before bed to relax.
Sister & Co. Activated Charcoal Deep Cleanse Detoxifying Soap Bar, Full-Size! – Retail Value $16.97 (£13.00)
This is such a pricy bar of soap! It’s designed to be used on your face and is made with activated bamboo charcoal, coconut, sweet almond, and olive oils. I stay away from using coconut oil on my face because coconut oil is comedogenic, but I have enjoyed using this on my chest and arms, places I will occasionally get a rogue pimple. It isn’t drying, but it definitely leaves me feeling clean!
Lily Lolo Eye Shadow Brush – Retail Value $9
This purse-sized shadow brush is the perfect size for having a quality brush with you on the go. It picks up powder easily and blends shadow smoothly.
Elemis Superfood Facial Wash, Full-Size! – Retail Value $33.25
This was what I was most excited about in the box- a full-size Elemis cleanser! I have enjoyed everything I have tried from Elemis, but this cleanser fell a little flat for me. It didn’t do a good job of removing my makeup so it would need to be used in a double cleansing routine, and while it was gentle it wasn’t anything special. You can find more affordable cleansers that do a better job.
The Verdict: This was my first experience with FeelUnique, and I think they did a great job of curating a quality vegan beauty lineup! Not only were all of the products new to me, but all of the brands except Elemis were too. I thought the sizes of the products included were generous, and I would definitely want to try out other curated FeelUnique boxes based on my experience with this one. Value-wise, this box has a total retail value of $114.47, which is a little below the promised value of $125.02 but still more than double the cost of the box.
