November Kara's Way Box

Back in June I had subscribed to Kara's way and shortly after that they sent an email saying they were going to suspend the monthly bags and relaunch in the fall.  The company had grown and they wanted to make sure they still sent out quality items to their customers.  True to their word I received an email saying they have relaunched.  I signed up for 2 months (November and December).  Kara's Way cost $15 a month with shipping included and the promise to send 5-10 samples in each box.  They also just announced discounts for 3, 6 and 12 month subscriptions.  What I like about these type of boxes is being able to try the products.  Natural, organic, vegan products sometimes tend to be a little more expensive than traditional beauty items and it's a nice way to try the items without have to buy a full size item and pay full size price. 

The good:

Products: You will receive natural, organic and or vegan items for a fraction of the cost.  It's a great way to try products out without spending a ton of money. 

Pricing: You can sign up for 3, 6 or 12 month subscriptions and each one saves you a little bit of money. 

The not so good: 

Hmmmm I really can't think of anything.  

These are my goodies.  Like before the Kara's way tag is actually filled with seeds.  You can put it in a pot with soil and watch it grow.  

Contents of box with value and retail price of full size product listed:

FULL SIZE Honeybee Gardens Eyeliner in Belgian Chocolate.  Value = $7.99

FULL SIZE Dle Cosmetics lip gloss in Jess Barely. Value $8.95

2 oz. bar Indochime Natural Star Anise & Coffee Soap. Value = $3.11 (4.5 oz. $7.00)

.005 oz. packet of Everyday Minerals Shimmer Shadow in Midnight Mystery (copper color). Value = $0.82 (.06 oz.  $8.99) - I really like this color. It goes on nicely, has some nice sparkly and lasts most of the day. 

.005 oz. packet of Everyday Minerals Shimmer Shadow in Spiritual Shimmer (pink color). Value = $0.82 (.06 oz. $8.99) - This is a nice base eyeshadow.  It has a little sparkle to it so it could be used alone as well.

2 ml packet of Natural Repair moisturizing cream. Value = $0.60 (50ml bottle $15.00)

.03 oz. vial of Mbeze Once Bitten oil perfume. Value = $0.16 (4 oz bottle $16.00)

The total value of this box is $22.45.  I really like brown eyeliners so I was happy to receive this.  At first I was a little disappointed in the packaging of the eyeshadow but it's actually been no problem at all to use it.  The anise and coffee bar smells really strong, I wonder if I will end up smelling like coffee and anise all day.  I've been getting lots of lip glosses lately so while the color is nice I wasn't too excited by it.      

Verdict:  This is a great box with a nice variety of items.  I may just sign up for a yearly subscription on this one. 

**I am not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for Kara's Way.  I purchase these subscriptions myself.
