What’s inside a LaRitzy Box??!
December was jam packed with fun and essential skincare items. Nail polish, a makeup brush, a natural exfoliating sponge, mascara, cuticle oil, and night cream.
Let’s first look at our naughty girls from Trust Fund Beauty.
Trust Fund Beauty – Nail Polish, Boys Tears – ★★★★
Description: TFB is one of our crowd favourites, so we brought them back! Boy Tears is a multi-glitter overlay that will have you sparkling at all your holiday parties!
They knock it out of the park again with their finesse for naming nail polishes. Boy Tears is just as gorgeous as it looks. Somebody hurt a lot of Ryan Goslings to get all those shimmer and shines into one bottle. One coat looks like a glamorous gown ready for a New Year’s ball. I’ll be a damn disco ball if I do coats two and three. 😍
Studio Aroma – Cuticle Oil -★★★★
Description: Strengthen and nourish your nails and cuticles! This cuticle oil helps reduce breakage and protects nails from splitting. Nourish your nails and promote growth. Works best with everyday use!
Studio Aroma’s products and ingredients are never tested on animals during any part of the process. I think most items are vegan, but their FAQ states they will custom make anything for you if you have a concern.
This cuticle oil is AMAZING! I’ve been trying different cuticle oils since my Rainbow Honey subscriptions and this one is extra awesome for a few different reasons. The blend of oils is extra nourishing and the delivery method is superb! ✌️ Twist the bottom of the ‘pen’ to expel oil into a soft fine brush. Paint it on your nail beds and cuticles. With the nail polish applicator I’m used to it’s easy to get a lot of oil and then make a mess on everything you touch—with this pen, it’s really easy to apply the perfect amount. My books have never looked so sanitary.

m.o.t.d Cosmetics – Mr. Handyman – ★★★★
Description: Mr. Handyman is a brush that everyone should have in their makeup tool kit. In just one sweep, this brush applies eye shadow from lash to brow in a second. M.O.T.D Quick Tip: Want to really put this handyman to work? Use this brush to highlight the brow bone or contour and highlight the face.
I’ve been using this brush religiously since receiving. It’s larger than a blending brush and can indeed sweep your transition color from tip to top. I love it for days I wear a single color or blending in the highlight. I haven’t tried it with contouring, but will soon!

The Konjac Sponge Co. – Face Sponge -★★★★
Description: This magical sponge deeply cleanses, removes blackheads and gently exfoliates the skin. Helps to stimulate blood flow and promote skin cell renewal. It’ll be your new shower bestie!
For as soft as it feels when dampened, it’s amazing how exfoliating it truly is. And so gentle! It’s great with a little cleanser or simply by itself.
GlamNatural – Mascara, Brown -★★★★
Description: Craving that gorgeous wide-eyed look this holiday season? This mascara is your secret weapon! Position wand horizontally and wiggle from side to side, base to tip, to achieve desired volume, length, and lift.
I was pleasantly pleasantly surprised by the wand of this mascara. I took a look and was disappointed. Half my battles with mascara come down to the brush design and this looked pretty basic. I was wrong. A few wriggles while applying and it looks almost as good as my Better Than Sex mascara. It’s on the natural side, but not completely basic. I haven’t tested day-long or workout wearability. Let us know if you have!
It is my understanding that all Glam Natural products are vegan and cruelty-free.
Available at GlamNatural
1 – GlamNatural Blush Sample, it’s a cream blush and worked great as a lipstick and blush.
1 – BodiSafe night cream (found here), the first ingredient was shea butter and it is indeed a thick night cream. I was pleasantly surprised that it didn’t block my pores or cause breakouts from being so thick. It has a nice light and refreshing scent.
