Pip Box December Review


The Pip Box is a cruelty-free monthly subscription box costing £20, with 0.50p of each box going towards Animal Free Research UK.

The box promotes ethical beauty brands as each contains over £55 of cruelty-free and vegan beauty products, allowing makeup and skincare lovers to switch to more conscientious cosmetics.

This month’s box was the ‘Winter Saviours’ edit- filled with products to help soothe and nourish yourself and your skin during the festive period!


The Box Contained:

  • Coconut Lane Up In The Clouds Beauty Balm

This moisturising balm uses the calming properties of Vanilla to help soothe dry lips and skin.

This balm felt lovely and hydrating on my lips, offering much-needed moisture in these colder months and a sweet, light scent of vanilla.

It’s just a basic lip balm but one that I will definately use.

RRP: £6

RATING: 3/5


  • Vitamasque Cranberry and Apple Sheet Mask

A vitamin C focussed mask designed to nourish and brighten the skin with added antioxidant protection.

The best thing about this mask is the smell- it’s delicious, but not overpowering when it’s on your face.

The mask fits well and left my skin feeling super hydrated and glowy.

I wasn’t too impressed with the Vitamasque Eye Masks we got in the September box, but this one I really liked!

RRP: £4.99

RATING: 3/5


  • Lucky Cloud Balancing Cleansing Balm

Enriched with exfoliating green clay and gentle and anti-inflammatory oils such as borage, grapeseed and organic jojoba, it will melt away dirt, grime and even stubborn makeup to leave your skin soft and clean.

This little pot of cleanser is soft and gentle on my skin, melting away my makeup without scrubbing and leaving my skin feeling clean but never dry or tight.

The lavender scent is soothing and relaxing- I love it!

RRP: £8

RATING: 4/5


  • MEMI Low Down Lip Gloss (in the shade ‘Bout You’)

This nude gloss is enriched with a subtle blend of oils to nourish and protect the lips.

This lip gloss is perfect for me! They described the colour of a nude pink but it’s definitely more of a warmed- toned nude in my opinion, but I prefer that anyway.

It leaves a lovely, glossy, non-sticky finish that lasts well on the lips.

I will be getting a lot of wear out of this!

RRP: £10

RATING: 5/5


  • Manna Kadar Runway Ready Primer

An essential makeup base that gives your skin a matte, silky smooth finish that will keep your makeup in place ALL day. It also smooths skin texture and minimises the appearance of fine lines and pores.

I hate primers that have a silicone feel to them (the feeling is like nails on a chalkboard) so I was ready to use this primer once as a test then never use it again.

But this one has more of a gel-like consistency and did make my skin feel silky smooth and made my foundation stay-put and look surprisingly flawless all day!

I was pleasantly surprised by this product and enjoyed it a lot.

RRP: £32

RATING: 4/5


You can use the code: THE10TEST to get your first box for only £10 to see if you like it for yourself.

Boxes are dispatched usually around the 20th of each month but sell out quick!
