I'm quite excited about this post! At the beginning of February I came across The Vegan Kind via Facebook. For those of you unfamiliar with their service they are like a hybrid between a monthly beauty box like Glossybox and a Graze Box except all the products are natural, cruelty-free and Vegan. At the time I'd only been fully Vegan for about a week or so and thought this might be a fab opportunity to introduce myself to some new and animal-friendly products and snack ideas. So I signed up and my first box arrived this morning and I thought I'd do some photos and pop up a first impressions post.
You absolutely do NOT have to be Vegan to enjoy this service. It's perfect for anyone looking to discover healthier, more eco and animal friendly snacks and beauty/household products and those who are contemplating experimenting with Veganism. With each box you receive 5-6 products ranging from healthy snacks, sweet treats, Vegan alternatives, cruelty free beauty/household products and anything in between. The Vegan Kind also donate 10p from every box sold to a featured charity each month (voted for by their Facebook followers). This month the donation will be made to the Society for Abandoned Animals. Each month you also get a recipe card with ideas on how to use the products in your box which are designed to go into a special folder (received with your third box).
Sooooo.... What's in the box????
They're certainly playing to my sweet tooth with this one! I was a little bummed that I didn't get any toiletries or beauty products for my first box (past boxes have included Organic Surge shower gels and Vegan lip balms) but I'm not cross. This is a lovely selection. The Pulsin Raw Choc Brownie lasted all of ten seconds once I'd taken its picture and it was LUSH! Kind of like a naughtier version of the Nakd snack bars. I'm sure I will enjoy the SAF Express Raw Coconut Cookies. I'm really not a fan of coconut at all but, since being Vegan I've found myself coming round to many things I wasn't keen on before. Perhaps my tastebuds are evolving?
TVK have also appealed to my love of something spicy with this box. The Flavour Magic Harissa seasoning will come in very handy as I love a sprinkle of something tasty. This powder looks like it will be very versatile. My On The Pulse Hot Chick chickpea snacks also have a Moroccan theme. Finally, TVK have saved me a trip to the supermarket for washing up liquid by including this Greenfrog version containing natural soapnuts. I'm just about to run out. It's a HUGE bottle too so will last a long time. Great value.
All in all I am really pleased with my first TVK box! The products are all full size and the RRP of everything adds up to more than the £10 (+£2.95 P&P) I paid for the box. There's nothing here I won't enjoy or make use of. Fingers crossed for some beauty products in #TVK6!! I'm definitely going to stick it out for a few more boxes.
