This is a review of LaRitzy.

New packaging - I like!

First look & product card

Glam Natural Mascara in Brown ($28)
I've received Glam Natural samples in the past but never a full size. I'm also loving that it's brown. I'm a red head, so brown mascara is my go-to for daytime, casual looks. It's rare to get brown in a subscription box so I'm pleased with this! Glam Natural is vegan and paraben free.

MOTD Cosmetics Pick Up Line Eyeliner Brush ($9)
MOTD brushes are 100% cruelty free and vegan. This liner brush can be used with liquid, cream, or gel liners. You can also dampen the brush a bit and turn a powder eye shadow into an eyeliner!

Konjac Facial Puff Sponge ($11.60 US - converted from £7.99)
This 100% Pure Konjac Sponge deeply cleanses, removes blackheads and gently exfoliates the skin. The unique net like structure of the vegetable fibres helps to stimulate blood flow and promote skin cell renewal.

Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in Boy Tears ($15)
TFB produces 5-free polishes that are vegan and cruelty-free. This is a great sparkly mix and I love the name!

Studio Aroma Cuticle Oil ($12) - Not pictured
This is a brand new product from Studio Aroma, a holistic therapy beauty company. The specialized key ingredients help strengthen and nourish nails and cuticles.

Note: When I went through this box, it seemed like I was short a full size item. According to the product card, I was supposed to receive a cuticle oil pen from Studio Aroma. I contacted LaRitzy to let them know and find out how they would handle this for a subscriber (since mine is a complimentary review box). I was assured that a replacement product would be sent either immediately, or in the following month's box. 

This is a brand new product - a full size isn't even available to order yet. Bodisafe Night Cream is vegan, cruelty free, paraben free, gluten free, talc free, mineral oil free, phthalates free, and more.

Bonus Sample - Glam Natural Cream Blush
This is a tiny sample of the shade "After Hours". The website describes it as "a high definition, deep rose/plum hue" and suggests it works well with darker skin tones.

The December LaRitzy box included five full size products, plus two samples. The retail value is around $76 US. My favourite product this month is the mascara. They had me at brown. I was also impressed with the quick response from customer service about the missing item.
