Firstly the one product I was slightly disappointed with was the Yes To Carrots make-up wipes. They just took quite a while to take off my natural mascara and I found them to be slightly drying. Then again this isn’t something I would use on a daily basis mostly due to the fact I am in love with my current no-fuss method of using avocado oil slathered all over my face before washing off.
Reading the back of the packet, I noticed the presence of sodium benzoate – a preservative that although is naturally present in low concentration in fruits, is synthesised for production in a laboratory. When combined with citric acid (also on the ingredients list) it forms benzene which is a carcinogenic. Safe to say I wont be using anymore of those. The rest of the box seems to have the OK from me when checking the labels though I still need to take a closer look. Sadly the nipple balm wasn’t as much of an excitement on my lips as it sounded on the tube but not terrible. It’s a very thick paste and does a great job of making my lips go flakey.
My favourite product I am very happy with from this box is the Inika black eyeliner pencil, as I already had this on my shopping list. It is easy to apply, has a lovely soft texture and is a saturated black pigmentation. Full-size as well!! The John Masters hair milk smells utterly incredible (my favourite, rose!) and I really LOVED this in my towel dried hair. I also used it the morning after I had styled my hair the previous day using a hot curling wand (my hair never likes that much) and it really made my ends feel instantly softer, nourished and deeply conditioned. Very pleased to see 9 certified-organic oils and extracts in the ingredients, I could definitely tell they were there. Sodium benzoate is in there though no citric acid. Potassium sorbate too, though I think this product would be fine as it is just topically on my hair and not my skin.
Can’t wait for November’s box!
