Kinder Beauty sends out two box variations each month. This is a review of the “Deep Sea Box” for August 2021.

What’s Inside This Box

Earth Harbor Samphire Sea-Retinol Digital Serum – Retail Value $49

 

Everything about this glowy serum is a yes! Not only does it look beautiful on the vanity, it feels beautiful on the skin. With sustainable natural ingredients, it performs like a retinol treatment using Sea Samphire (a succulent), providing anti-aging and brightening benefits without the need of developing a tolerance to retinol or getting harsh skin reactions to a retinol product. I used this under my night cream last night, and I woke up to a fresh, plump complexion! Samphire is pregnancy and sensitive skin safe, and it is non-GMO, organic, and free of synthetics. Earth Harbor is woman-owned; their products are made in small batches in the USA.

Franklin & Whitman Old City Hair Serum – Retail Value $24.95

Franklin & Whitman Hair Serum

Last fall, I decided my hair journey needed some extra oomph so I headed to the salon for a loose perm. To my dismay, my thin hair reacted terribly, and I am left with frizz galore. I’ve been in search of an awesome hair product to tame frizz while leaving me with some body and wave in my hair. This oily serum might hold the answers I’ve been seeking, but I am still tweaking my application. I don’t like to wash my hair more than three times a week, and the first time I used this, I used two pumps and it was way too much; I had to wash my hair the very next day, no bueno. The second time I only used one pump which was much better. I barely had any frizz, besides some of my stubborn baby hairs that stand straight up (no respect), and my hair smelled great. This serum has jojoba, argan, and vitamin E oils to nourish and protect your hair and lavender essential oil to fragrance this mop.

Karuna Hit Refresh Sheet Mask – Retail Value $18

 

Karuna makes some of my favorite sheet masks. Hit Refresh was a new formula for me, but it has all of my favorite aspects of a sheet mask. It wasn’t over-fragranced, it stayed put on my face, and of course, its ingredients, which worked wonders for my complexion. There is nothing like removing a face mask, basking in the leftover serum, and later on looking in the mirror to a bright complexion. Using superfoods like kale, spirulina, and spinach as well as eucalyptus, this mask manages to rehydrate dull and tired skin while hyaluronic acid hydrates. It is a beautiful treat for the skin, and it is so cool that Kinder Beauty included three masks in this shipment.

Owl in a Towel Hand Sanitizer – Retail Value $4.95

Owl in a Towel 2 oz Bottle of Hand Sanitizer

Girl. I am so sick of hand sanitizer I could literally scream, but I know it is essential in today’s world. The average Joe of hand sanitizers smells like alcohol and burns my booboos on the daily. All of that being said, I could absolutely get used to Owl in a Towel’s upgraded version. It is nothing like its predecessors, thankfully, and it made my hands feel and smell like a lovely spa treatment. My hands have been through the wringer in the last two years, but this product gives me some hope that someday my hands will recover. Of course, it still uses alcohol to kill 99.9% of germs, but glycerin and aloe help soothe the skin, and the bergamot fragrance is such a refreshing change of pace. Love this!

Eco Lips Lip/Cheek Tint, Nude – Retail Value $8.99

 

I love a multi-tasking product. This chubby stick gives a little color, shimmer, and a lot of moisture. Coconut oil, jojoba oil, and shea butter make this product glide on and hydrate like a pro.

Eco Lips product swatched on wrist

At first glance, I wasn’t impressed with the color of this stick but applied to the cheeks and lips, it gives a lovely glow to the skin. It is very shimmery, so it is not something that I would wear too often on my face, but if I am going for a very quick, put-together yet simple look, I will definitely be reaching for this as a highlight.

Liquid I.V. Hydration Multiplier Electrolyte Drink Mix in Lemon Lime

 

This sample was provided as a bonus this month. I am willing to try anything that makes drinking water all day more tolerable, so I was happy to give this supplement a shot. It contains 11 essential minerals, vitamin C and B, and electrolytes to hydrate and refuel your body. I liked this sample and would consider buying it in the future.

 

Verdict

August’s Kinder Beauty Box was another huge hit. I trust this brand’s curation every month to deliver all of the vegan and cruelty-free goods that I have been sleeping on. I think I found my new go-to serum for sensitive skin this month as well as a new hair serum that doesn’t make my hair limp and lifeless. Each month the value of this box’s contents absolutely makes it worth the cost, and I love the unboxing experience and reading more about each brand featured.

Great review! I only received one of the Karuna masks in my box though. I wonder what’s up with that?
