In today’s post I will be sharing with you an unboxing of the Spring 2020 Flora & Fauna Beauty Box. I’ve been purchasing these for some time which you might know if you have been following me on instagram, where I have frequently featured what I have recieved in my various boxes over that last couple of years. A couple of months ago I decided to share what I recieved in my winter box in the style of a video so I thought that I would continue to do this because I had fun filming that video and I know that that style of video has been popular in the past so I thought it would be good to share one like Flora & Fauna’s.
As well as the video I will share a small description as well as some photos of each product below, so once you have checked out the video feel free to scroll down to get a closer look at what I recieved in the lastest box.
What is Flora & Fauna?
Flora & Fauna is a great website that is like your one stop shop for eco-friendly, cruelty-free and vegan products. They have thousands of products available for purchase on their website in a range of catagories like beauty, fashion, health and house hold cleaning products just to name a few. I highly recommend checking them out if this kind of thing interests you, They are Australian owned and their customer service is great, they ship fairly quickly and their shipping is 100% carbon neutral, they are also B-corp Certified.
