Vertue Review by Jasmine – November 2018

Thank you to the new owners of Vertue for sending out this box for me to review. Vertue are Green, Clean, Cruelty-Free, eco and Vegan friendly.

Vertue arrived via Royal Mail in a jiffy bag with a large piece of cardboard wrapped around the box for extra protection. I absolutely love the box design crisp white sliding box cover with the Vertue logo in reflective silver. Vertue is a bi-monthly box and this was their Halloween edition featuring three layers of black tissue paper, one piece of orange tissue paper as well as lots of black and orange cat shaped paper confetti.

So before I talk your ear off about the box price and the products why not watch my live unboxing here…

So let’s take a closer look at these products and what my views on each of them are…

Cougar Snail Slime Facial Serum 30ml £9.99

Snail slime has been found to have many rejuvenating effects on the skin making it a must have ingredient. Serum is a must in any skincare routine and a little goes a long way. I personally am not a fan of Cougar products and to be honest I prefer Korean skincare brands but I actually like this serum and will continue to use it. I don’t think it will be for everyone but I like it. The serum is a milky translucent colour and has a cleanser smell to it.

Cougar Snake Venom Daily Cleansing Cream 100ml £11.99

This cleanser comes out as a cream and has an almost floral scent to it. The snake venom is tripeptide synthetic that effectively smoothes wrinkles and reduces the appearance of fine lines by reducing the ability of muscle cells to contract. Personally I don’t think this cleanser is for me.

Natural By Nature Oils Witch Hazel 100ml £4.08

Absolutely love witch hazel as it’s great for everything from spots, cuts, cleansing face or helping soothe bites along with multiple other uses. Witch Hazel is one of those products everyone should have and keep in their homes as you never know when you will need it. I love the dark glass bottle size and colours on the label. I have been using on my little breakout.

Conscious Love Potion no.9 50g £3.00

So this beautiful chocolate is Vegan, Vegetarian, Organic, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soya Free, low gi, low gl and is only sweetened with agave nectar. This chocolate bar is made with organic maca and essential oil of rose. Unfortunately this RAW chocolate is just not for me as it tastes a bit like Turkish delight and I just can’t stand Turkish Delight at all but my other half and daughter Ariana-Joy loved it.

The Natural Family Co. Bio Toothbrush 2 pack £8.40

Absolutely love these biodegradable toothbrushes as the bristles are just perfect not too hard or too soft resulting in cleaner teeth. Also love the Colours rivermint and monsoon mist that also are easy to hold as well as grip. I think these are a must and should be available in supermarkets instead of non biodegradable ones.

Kingfisher Naturally Whitening Charcoal Toothpaste 100ml £5.57

This toothpaste is grey in colour and has a thick gritty feeling like charcoal powder. I don’t think a few days is enough to say if the product works or not so I will keep you all updated on our social media platforms. This toothpaste is Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten Free and GM Free. I love the minty taste.

My Verdict

The Halloween edition of Vertue was a lovely surprise even if I wasn’t too keen on a product or two that is down to personal taste, I loved the witch hazel and toothbrushes the best. The only thing I must say is I hate the new feature online of the pop ups telling me someone bought this product at such and such at time/place as it’s really annoying but again this is my personal opinion. I absolutely adore the box design and the thought that has went into the box. Personally I would have swapped out a few products but that’s just because they weren’t to my liking but they may be perfect for someone else.

If I had to give this box a rating out of ten unfortunately it would only be a 8 at the moment but I think they may up their game in the next year because as I said Vertue was recently bought over so the box even if it has been around for a while it is like a new box.

Thank you for reading my review,
