The April Box
This month's Better Beauty Box by Cruelty-Free Kitty included four fantastic products that I'm thrilled to add to my beauty routine. First up is the AXIS-Y Complete No-Stress Physical Sunscreen SPF 50 PA++++, which provides powerful protection from harmful UV rays without leaving a white cast. Next, the HAN Cosmetics Mascara is one of the best cruelty-free and vegan mascaras out there. The Lovesong Evergreen Shampoo and Ultralush Conditioner make a great duo, leaving hair clean, glossy, and hydrated, thanks to their glycerin-based and silicone-free formulas. Overall, this month's box is one of my favorites as I tried to select staples that everyone can add to their routine.

Let's get into each product!
AXIS-Y Complete No-Stress Physical Sunscreen SPF 50 PA++++ ($24)
I'm always on the lookout for a good sunscreen that not only protects my skin but also doesn't leave a greasy residue or white cast. The AXIS-Y Complete No-Stress Physical Sunscreen SPF 50 PA++++ definitely delivers on both fronts. It has a lightweight, non-greasy formula that blends in effortlessly and doesn't leave any white residue.
What's more, this sunscreen is packed with skin-loving ingredients like centella asiatica and niacinamide that help soothe and calm the skin while providing protection from harmful UV rays. I also appreciate that it's a physical sunscreen, meaning it uses mineral filters instead of chemical ones, making it safe for both my skin and the environment.
Overall, I'm really impressed with the AXIS-Y Complete No-Stress Physical Sunscreen SPF 50 PA++++, and I think it's a great addition to my skincare routine, especially as we head into the summer months.
HAN Cosmetics Mascara ($20)
I've read so many positive reviews for the HAN Cosmetics Mascara that I had to try it for myself, and I'm happy to report that it lived up to the hype! It gives me the length and volume I want but also helps me feel good about the ingredients I'm putting on my lashes.
The formula is weightless and never clumps, which means my lashes don't feel weighed down or stiff. The brush is precise and easy to use, allowing me to coat every lash evenly and build up as much drama as I want.
But what sets this mascara apart from others is its eco-friendly and cruelty-free nature. HAN Cosmetics is dedicated to using natural and sustainable ingredients in all their products, which means I can feel good about using this mascara every day. Plus, of course, it's never tested on animals and is vegan, making it a perfect fit.
So, if you're looking for a mascara that not only makes your lashes look amazing but also aligns with your ethical and sustainable values, look no further than the HAN Cosmetics Mascara. It's a game-changer!
Lovesong Evergreen Shampoo ($32)
When I first tried the Lovesong Evergreen Shampoo, I wasn't sure what to expect. I've tried a lot of natural or clean shampoos in the past, and sometimes they don't quite deliver the same effectiveness as their traditional counterparts. But what impressed me about this shampoo was how it performed after I blow-dried my hair. It left my hair feeling so clean and looking so glossy that I couldn't believe it was a natural product.
One thing I noticed about this shampoo is that it's glycerin-based, which is something I haven't encountered in a shampoo before. But after doing some research, I learned that glycerin is a natural humectant that helps to hydrate the hair without weighing it down. And that's exactly how my hair felt after using this shampoo - hydrated, soft, and bouncy.
Another standout feature of this shampoo is the scent. It's fresh and invigorating, with notes of evergreen and mint that make it a perfect pick-me-up for early mornings or after a long day.
Overall, I'm really impressed with the Lovesong Evergreen Shampoo. It's a great option for anyone who wants to switch to a more natural hair care routine without sacrificing performance. The texture may take some getting used to, but the results speak for themselves.
Lovesong Ultralush Conditioner ($34)
These two products are the only shampoo and conditioner in the Lovesong line, and they're designed to work with all hair types. The first thing I noticed about this conditioner is how creamy it is. It feels luxurious and rich, but without any heaviness or greasiness. Like the shampoo, this conditioner is glycerin-based, which I think contributes to its effectiveness in hydrating and softening my hair.
I usually only apply conditioner to the ends of my hair, and this conditioner does a great job of keeping them hydrated and frizz-free. Even after blow-drying my hair, my ends still feel soft and smooth, with no dryness or breakage.
One thing I appreciate about this conditioner is that it doesn't use silicones, which can weigh down the hair and make it feel greasy or flat. Instead, it relies on natural ingredients like glycerin, hemp oil, argan oil, and shea butter to nourish and protect the hair.
Overall, I highly recommend the Lovesong Ultralush Conditioner for anyone who wants a natural, effective conditioner that will keep their hair looking and feeling its best. It's a great option for all hair types, and the creamy texture and silicone-free formula make it a real standout in the crowded world of hair care products.
