It’s officially one hundred years since women in Britain got the vote. That’s why this month’s beaut bettybox is decked out in a floral frenzy of green, white and violet – the famous suffragette colours.
If you’re not yet in the know, the suffragettes were a group of brave women who fought hard for women’s rights back at the start of the twentieth century. These awesome ladies are who us girls can thank for being able to vote when we turn 18! And in celebration, the goodies in this month’s box are from female-founded beauty brands or have been picked to make you feel empowered and inspired.
Anyway, enough of the history lesson, let’s get to the juicy stuff – what’s in the box and why you need it in your life right now.
Scent Republik FAB! Scent Stik
One sniff of this stuff will have you feeling FAB! and ready to take on whatever life throws at you. The sweet scent of vanilla, mandarin and praline comes in a handy stick that’s disguised as a pen. Use it on your skin, on a letter to your secret crush or even to give your homework that extra something. Just pop it in your pencil case – doodles never smelt so good! And, if you like to experiment with your perfume, Scent Republik FAB! Scent Stiks are super-cool as you can layer them up to create your very own unique scent. Prepare to become obsessed…
Maggie Anne Nail Polish in Carmela or Argentina
Our girl power party wouldn’t be complete without metallic nails. You will receive one of two shimmertastic Maggie Anne polishes in Carmela – a gorgeous gold, or Argentina – sophisticated silver. Here at betty, being empowered isn’t just about looking and feeling good, it’s about making decisions that empower us as girls and standing up for what we believe in. You might be shocked to find out that many nail polishes contain all types of icky ingredients, like crushed beetles and fish scales, double ick! Thankfully, all Maggie Anne Nail Polish is 100% vegan and cruelty-free.
The Beauty Crop Fabulous Flocking Lashes
Another thing that makes us feel empowered as girls is taking care of our bodies and skin with natural products that are good for us. Not only is The Beauty Crop Fabulous Flocking Lashes perfect for creating fluttering eyelashes with it’s super-clever 360 degree technology (with one sweep of the wand, it coats every single lash from root to tip), but it’s enriched with nourishing argan oil and jojoba to condition, separate, plump and lengthen. Snaps for The Beauty Crop for making us feel awesome and look fierce!
