Eco-Friendly Spotlight: True Beauty Box
Finding new beauty products is not an easy task. We comb through the beauty aisle, assessing every product, trying to figure out what’s right for us. Sometimes we leave empty handed or we buy something only to realize after several tries that it doesn’t match our skin tone or our skin reacts adversely to it. Love True Natural, a beauty company that features eco-friendly and all-natural brands, has come up with a great solution for this beauty dilemma. Their subscription based True Beauty Box delivers full-size all-natural products to your door each month. Simply take a beauty profile quiz to figure out your beauty style as well as providing your hair color, skin tone, and eye color. This quiz will determine your beauty profile; Organically On Trend, Purely Pretty, Natural Beauty, or Eco Chic so you will receive wearable colors for you. They also have three styles of True BeautyBoxes to choose from; Flirt, Veganista, or Indulge.
I received January’s Flirt box, which features three to four makeup products and a surprise gift. The box included Benecos Nail Polish, which is 5 free, Lavera Tinted Moisturizer, Lavera Mattifying Mineral Finish, and a hair tie from Sassy Knots.
I enjoy doing at-home manicures because I don’t have to wonder if the manicurist at the nail salon disinfects her nail utensils after each customer.

In the mornings, I like to keep my makeup routine down to five minutes since the snooze button is my best friend. Lavera Tinted Moisturizer makes evening out my skin tone a quick and easy task. Made from all-natural ingredients such as soothing aloe vera, brightening Vitamin C, and moisturizing coconut and argan oil, the tinted moisturizer is a great day time alternative to foundation.
If I decide to go out at night, I like to go for a more matte finish for the face. Lavera Mattifying Mineral Finish was able to extend the wear of the Lavera Tinted Moisturizer and kept my skin shine-free all night. The eco-friendly and all-natural mineral powder is made from organic jojoba and olive oil as well as calendula extract, giving the skin an extra boost of hydration.
The bonus gift in the box was a Sassy Knots hair tie, great for keeping my hair out of the way when I wanted to wash my hair or put on makeup. I also reached for it when I was too lazy to style my hair; I would sweep my bangs back with the colored headband, and pull my hair into a quick ponytail or bun, and I would be out the door.
