Review: Gourmet Body Treats Beauty Box

If you love to try new beauty products, monthly subscription boxes can be a fun way to get new samples on a regular basis. Fortunately, there are vegan boxes as well. Gourmet Body Treats recently started offering a monthly beauty box filled with vegan cosmetics and skin care products.

  • Vegan and gluten-free
  • Gentle ingredients
  • Made in the USA
  • Variety beyond cosmetics
  • Comes with a website discount
  • Good value
  • Limited to one brand
This beauty box is unique in that it isn't limited to just vegan cosmetics. It also contained several bath and body products, such as a face wash and a hand and foot scrub. I received the July 2014 box, which had a "Hand and Foot Treatments" theme and included the following items:
So far, my favorite items have been the hand and foot cream, the hand and foot scrub, the lemon mint cleanser, and the lipstick. The cream is a fast-absorbing lotion, and I have been enjoying using the scrub in the shower. The cleanser seems to work well on my combination skin, and the orchid color worked really well for me. I love how Gourmet Body Treats is both vegan and gluten-free. Even better, they strive to use really gentle ingredients, even avoiding those such as FD&C dyes (which are the subject of debate and used in some "natural" products). (The products from this line are currently listed in the gentle 0-3 range on the EWG Skin Deep database.)

I love that the company is also eco-friendly and makes their products in the U.S. Although I listed the brand limitation as a con (simply due to a more limited pool of products), but it could also be a pro if you really love this brand (and there are many reasons to do so). For $19.99 (including U.S. shipping), this beauty box is quite a bargain. If you want gentle vegan and gluten-free products for face and body, this is a great way to sample Gourmet Body Treats' selection.
