So excited that the first Kinder Beauty box shops in just 2 weeks!! 💕📦💄Link to shop is in my bio! . I am so proud of the @kinderbeautybox team and my partner in kindness + beauty @daniellamonet! Building this project was one of the beautiful gifts 2018 delivered in my lap and I could not be more happy and proud to spread awareness of vegan beauty brands and products, to fight against animal testing and to help people switch to using only cruelty free products. . If you have just gone vegan this new year or you’ve yet to overhaul your cosmetics and beauty supplies then this is a great time to sign up to @kinderbeautybox 🙂 Once a month we ship you a box full of awesome CF products that we have both tested and loved 🥰If you are new to cruelty free beauty and don’t know how to start, we got you! Transitioning product by product, step by step, when one thing runs out at a time is how a lot of people switch to cruelty free products. @kinderbeautybox can make that transition SO much easier and more fun and spangly of course. ✨The box is $24 but has a value of $80 so go and sign up at the link in my bio!! 😮🤭 . And if you have already signed up, thank you for being kind, and get excited cos we’ll be showing you the new products real soon 🙂 #KinderBeauty #KinderBeautyBox #veganbeauty #crueltyfree
