Happy Sunday morning to you all! I hope your weekend has treated you nicely thus far.
Today I have a really exciting unboxing video and giveaway to share with you guys!
I have come to the conclusion over the past few weeks that I love subscription boxes, and I might even have a slight addiction…
So, I was so excited when I got the opportunity to work with Orglamix! They are a subscription box service that is $29.00 per month. This brand not only produces natural beauty products, but they’re also vegan, cruelty-free, and handcrafted too.
Also, for every box sold they supply a meal for an orphaned child in need. How awesome?!
See my first impressions in the video and details about the giveaway below!
Monica from Divina Organics was so kind and sent me some of her products all the way from the UK to review. I was originally going to do my review on Pinterest, but that limits me to 500 characters or less. Considering Monica sent me several lovely products, I wanted to give her a more in depth review. All of Divina’s products are cruelty, paraben and silcone free, and certified organic! How great?! Now onto the review….
This product is a skin care treatment for mature skin. Since I’m a teenager, I gave this to my grandmother to try. So, I’m going to be paraphrasing her thoughts 🙂 She said she loved the subtle scent and how moisturizing it was. She said her skin felt refreshed and hydrated after only using this once.
This product smells just like a fresh bouquet of roses! Most toners I’ve tried have burned my face. Thankfully, this one did not. I love that it’s in a spray bottle, it makes it cooling to the face and very refreshing. I found myself spraying this on my face to freshen up my skin throughout the day.
This is another product my grandmother tried. She used it for areas where she had a wrinkle or some dry skin. She told me it was super hydrating and that a little bit goes a long way. The oil is enriched with argan and macadamia oils, to name a few. It’s also vegan, yay!!!
Hydra Colour Lipstick & Vitamin E Lip Care
*I don’t believe the hydra colour lipstick is available for sale currently, but will be soon!* The lipstick itself is a lovely fuchsia shade with purple undertones. It’s very smooth and moisturizing. Unfortunately, it’s not very long lasting. I find the wearing time to be about 1-3 hours. The lip care is very moisturizing! I would even use it on my cuticles if they were extremely dry. Vitamin E is one of my favorite moisturizers!
This product I was a little disappointed in. I have oily/combo skin, and I found this to be a little too moisturizing. Although, if you have dry skin this would be great for you. It just doesn’t coincide with my skin type.
This product smells lovely. I put this on my face for about 5-10 minutes then washed it off. My face felt very refreshed, but not oily. Which is great. I love that it doesn’t dry so hard that your face can’t move. I loved this product!!
*This product isn’t currently available for sale in Monica’s shop.* She sent me this in order to try and give my honest feedback on. I actually really liked the product. I was sent the perfect color, it blended in smoothly, and lasted pretty long (with a foundation primer). I’m hoping Monica adds this to her shop soon!
Overall I’d give this company a 4.5 out of 5 stars. Monica was so sweet and my package arrived save and sound all the way from across the pond. The only big drawback for me was that there’s no directions on the products. I had to go onto her Etsy store to see how to properly use the products. These are a little more expensive than your typical drugstore skincare products, however they’re really worth it. These products are all homemade, certified organic, all natural, and Monica really cares about what going into her products. She’s always open for feedback in order to better her company and her products. The products featured in this post are just a few of what Monica has to offer. So, go have a look around by clicking here. She ships worldwide!
Thanks for taking the time to read this review, and thank you Monica for the lovely products. Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend. See you soon ❤
