Kara's Way - An Eco-Friendly Beauty Sample Service!

Kara's Way is a new beauty sample subscription service that just sent out their first boxes this month. There are a lot of these services popping up lately, but this one has a great twist- Each month you are sent 5-10 *eco-friendly* deluxe beauty samples. I think this really sets Kara's Way apart. Their mission is to help people sift through the many eco-friendly beauty options that are becoming available and help enable beauty lovers to live a greener lifestyle. Plus, while the other services I subscribe to offer 4-6 samples a month, this one boasts 5-10! I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to review the first box, and it did not disappoint!
First of all, I love the aesthetics here. The box came with a personalized note tied with a raffia ribbon and a Kara's Way tag. Here is what is really special- the tag is embedded with wildflower seeds! You can put the tag under a little bit of dirt, add some water and sun and watch the flowers grow..
As you can see, there were a ton of products included.
Here is what I got:
La Fresh Oil-Free Face Cleansing Wipe
La Fresh Acetone Free Nail Polish Remover Wipe
Sample of Native Touch Blue Corn Sugar Scrub
Sample of Native Touch Rooting Bear Rub
Sample of Native Touch Soap (The little brochure that came with the Nature's Touch samples is also embedded with wildflower seeds!)
1oz Beyond Coastal SPF 15 Sunscreen
2oz Thayer's Natural Remedies Cucumber Witch Hazel
0.27oz Naturelle D'Argan Pure Argan Elixir
Honeybee Gardens Valentine Water-Based Nail Enamel
Keeki Organic Lip Shimmer

Wow! As you can see, there is a lot of stuff in this box! Its a nice mix of full size and deluxe sample sized products. No teensy-tiny samples, which I really like. All of the products are either vegan, all natural, or organic. They are all cruelty-free, which as you may know is very important to me.
I hope Kara's Way continues to produce sample boxes like this one, because it is really amazing. There was a lot of attention to detail here, there is a great mix of cosmetics, skin care, body care, and hair care. I really loved this box, and I am so looking forward to the next one.
Great job and congratulations on the first box, Kara's Way! Keep up the good work!
