Vegan Box Beauty im Test

Vegan Box Beauty im Test


 

Vor einigen Monaten habe ich online die VEGAN BOX entdeckt und ich wollte sie baldmöglichst ausprobieren. Nachdem mich der Gedanke nicht mehr los lies, vegane Beauty Produkte zu bekommen und diese testen zu können, zufällig zusammengestellt von dem VEGAN BOX Team. Habe ich die Box endlich bestellt. Als das Paket dann ankam, war ich super neugierig und konnte es kaum abwarten die Box aufzumachen. Und hier sind sie, die veganen Beauty Produkte in meiner persönlichen Box! 

Mit dabei:

1x Gesichts Waschtuch

1x Gesichtsmaske

1x Pflege Lotion

1x Make Up

1x Handcreme

 

Ich habe für die Box 25€ gezahlt und erhielt Produkte im Wert von ca 80€, gar nicht schlecht finde ich.
Als erstes habe ich gleich die “Nachtkerze” Revitalisierende Handcreme von Weleda getestet. Die Creme roch angenehm fruchtig und hat sich sehr weich und gut auf den Händen verteilen können. Durch die handliche Größe hab ich die kleine Tube gleich in meine Handtasche gepackt und will sie nicht mehr vermissen.  

Als nächstes möchte ich nun die Gesichtsmaske testen. Ich denke ich werde mir mal am Wochenende die Zeit für einen schönen Beautytag nehmen. 

Habt ihr die VEGAN BOX auch schon getestet? Was habt ihr in euren Boxen gehabt und wie findet ihr die Produkte?

Ich werde auf jeden Fall weiter testen und euch gerne berichten.

 

 

Vegan Twix Bars

Vegan Twix Bars

Before I went vegan a little over a year ago I was a vegetarian. I didn’t really cook a lot and most days I was starving after work so Id stuff myself with cheese sandwiches because it was quick and because it was filling. As you might have noticed I have a very sweet tooth and when I was a vegetarian I was also consuming a huuuge amount of chocolate bars. Lets say I wasn’t a healthy vegetarian. My cholesterol level was through the roof and I wasn’t feeling great at all. So then I went vegan and all that changed except my love for chocolate bars. Only shortly after I went vegan I went to do the food shop and for some reason I remember being really stressed and angry and all of a sudden I was at the checkout eyeing up some twix bars. I was very very close to buying one and eating it right there in the shop. But I resisted I remember why I went vegan and I knew Id feel so bad after so I walked out.

You might think I went home and made my own vegan twix bars but I didn’t. My craving has passed and I was ok again. Only months and monthS later I thought I’m sure a vegan twix isn’t too hard to make and off I went to the kitchen. I made my first vegan twix and it wasn’t too bad except the shortcrust biscuit wasn’t great.

So I tried again and this time I think its delicious.

Heres my vegan twix bar. Let me know what you think and if you try it let me know on Instagram by tagging me or leaving a comment here.

Chunky or Smooth Spicy Chocolate Cereal Bars

Chunky or Smooth Spicy Chocolate Cereal Bars

Have I ever mentioned how much I love cereal bars? Proper cereal bars I mean. Not the stuff you get at the shop, now there are a few new bars that are great, but real homemade cereal bars.

I love having them in the house and if there are some they are usually gone pretty quickly.
There are so many recipes for them and I could share so many with you but today I have a recipe that for scrumptious spicy chocolate cereal bars.

Not only are they refined sugar free but the spices increase your intake of antioxidants. But you knew that already. I for myself love spicy food but when cooking for my two little ones I have to be cautious as if they detect any trace of a kick to their food they wont eat it. So these are moderately spicy.

Chunky Cereal Bar

The recipe is for chunky and smooth bars depending on your preference and if you’re making them please let me know in the comment section what you thought.
Enjoy
