  • Bellapierre Cosmetics: Mineral Blush in Amaretto Retail Value: $29.98

 

Chiky Botanica Serene Serum, 1oz – Retail Value $56.00

I am very much attracted to the green hue of this oil-based serum. It is so tempting for me to slather my face and body in this serum since it looks like an enticing beauty potion that smells lovely; however, after reading over the ingredients, even though this is targeted for people with sensitive skin, I know that this would not fly on my reactive sensitive skin. The first few ingredients listed are decent oils like argan, jojoba, and rosehip seed oil, followed by a slew of essential oils. Essential oils are lovely for aromatherapy, but fragrant oils wreak havoc on my complexion. That being said, I tried this out on the back of my hand, and I did enjoy the texture, which sunk into my skin upon contact. The scent didn’t linger, and of course, the tint did not either.

 

Willing Beauty DAYDREAM Illuminating Day Moisturizer, 1oz – Retail Value $24.00

Spring has sprung, and it will soon be time to switch to a lighter moisturizer. This one reminds me of a lotion/gel hybrid, a  perfect texture for the changing season. I like the way it cooled when I applied it, and my skin just drank it in. I am seeing a trend with this month’s skincare products; once again, this moisturizer’s ingredients are just not okey-dokey with my sensitive, dry skin. The third ingredient is an alcohol, and with prolonged use would dry up my dehydrated face and the last few ingredients are, you guessed it, fragrances. Vegan brands have a tendency to lean on essential oils and fruit extracts since they are organic and “clean” ingredients, but they do not serve a purpose and can even be damaging to the skin.

 

Derma E Microdermabrasion Scrub, .5oz Retail Value: $5.00

I am going to go ahead and contradict myself here, but I have a weakness for citrus, and this scrub smells and feels amazing! I know that abrasive scrubs are not good for sensitive facial skin, but I am addicted to the aggressive cleaning a salt scrub provides. The fine grit really smoothes out any rough patches on the skin and leaves it feeling soft and thoroughly cleansed.

 

J&L Naturals Shine Face Mask, 2.5oz – Retail Value $19.99

Even though clay masks tend to dry out my skin, I really like to use one once or twice a month to draw out impurities and calm my skin if I have any blemishes. Usually, it takes me some trial and error before I get a powder mask to the right consistency, but with a few drops, I got a great texture and applied it all over my face. After 10 minutes of relaxing while my mask dried, I rinsed the product off and patted my skin dry. This mask is made up of only four ingredients, kaolin clay, bentonite clay, beetroot and orange peel. It did a pretty good job of cleansing and left my face feeling squeaky clean. I noticed a little redness after rinsing, which disappeared by the time I was finished with my skincare routine.

 

Laritzy Cream Highlighter in Fame – Listed Value $32.00

Cream products are great for spring makeup looks! There is something about spring and summer that makes me want to add an extra glow, so this highlight came at the perfect time. Fame is a color advertised as an inclusive, one shade fits all, type of product, and I’d have to agree with that.

Here is the Laritzy highlighter swatched. I was surprised because the pan looks a little dark, but this highlight melted into my pale skin, leaving behind a golden bronze luster. I think it would look especially gorgeous on darker skin tones.

 

Verdict: March’s Kinder Beauty Box left me desiring more. I know a lot of people would be thrilled with the retail value of this month’s box ($136.99!), but I really didn’t vibe with any of the skincare this month, which was a majority of the products. Kinder Beauty usually sends out a much more balanced box, but this assortment was very skincare-heavy. I really enjoyed revisiting the Derma-E scrub and meeting the Laritzy highlighter, a new favorite, but the rest of the products were a miss for me.

Bellapeirre seems to be the kinder beauty box filler item, as it’s in every box each month.

I’ve had a few boxes that were lovely, however it’s going downhill.

Have been less impressed.

How does one expect to see honest reviews when boxes are sent FREE for review?

They boast they won awards, don’t care; your company’should’ speaks for itself by word of mouth, if you’re as good as you claim.

Customer service was fantastic first time there was an issue.

After that we’ve received abysmal customer service.

It may be great for a young teenager or someone on a really tight budget.

However I’d rather pay more money and have a better box with 2 items that are impressive, instead of a bunch of filler items.

The clincher was their mushroom hot chocolate which many people have become sick (bad reaction). A drink doesn’t really fit into a beauty product imo and this isn’t what most of us are looking for.

Again, it seems many items are thrown in as filler.

Is the bellapierre blush a typo (in the about the box section listing the box content)? Or was the laritzy sent in its place.
