The Vegan Kind Box 1 Review

The Vegan Kind Box 1

The Vegan Kind has landed! I’ve been banging on about it on various social media accounts lately, but in case you value your sanity and therefore steer clear of my Twitter feed: The Vegan Kind is a brand new all-vegan lifestyle subscription box, which you can get for £12.95 (includes postage & packaging) to your door each month.TVK Box 1 Content This service is the only one of its kind in the UK as it addresses all parts of living a vegan lifestyle rather than being a pure food box. Since I’ve only started applying veganism to my household & beauty products fairly recently, this is a massive plus-point to me. It’s already helped me discover some great new items!


The box is fully recyclable and also a really handy size for storing & posting things if you find yourself regularly running out of boxes. It comes with a letter talking about the box & introducing the month’s chosen charity – The Vegan Kind donate 10p from every sold box to an animal charity of their choice. This November, it was the more-than-worthy Farplace Animal Rescuewhich is a sanctuary I greatly admire and therefore spammed TVK’s Facebook and Twitter accounts with. It would seem others love the charity just as much, as they ended up being chosen!


Each box will also include an information leaflet featuring each of the chosen products (including discount codes, yay) and a recipe card. This time it was Vegan Vox’s Slow Cooker Leek & Potato Soup. Her blog is definitely worth a browse, it has some great recipes and I’ve started following it on bloglovin’ to make sure I don’t miss a single post!

TVK Button

The first item in my box was this cute little badge. It’s manufactured by Koolbadgesa small company run by two fellow vegans.
Next (not pictured) was Crystal Spring Salt of the Earth Deodorant (trial size), which is a typical crystal deodorant stick. This will be great to pop into a bag while travelling, it’s small and solid, meaning it should be no problem to take it onto a plane.

Clearspring Miso Bouillon

Also included was Clearspring Organic Miso Bouillon Paste (full size). I’m really excited about this, like nearly everyone I use some form of bouillon on a regular basis and I’m hoping this will really improve the flavour of my soups and seitan while being less harsh on the stomach than conventional products.

Living Naturally Soapnut Products

This product is something I’m really excited about. We’ve been looking around for less wasteful laundry products for a while, and these appear to be the perfect solution. Living Naturally Soapnut products promise effective laundry-washing without endless amounts of detergents and softener. This sample set (trial size) includes 5 soapnuts in a muslin bag, which should last about 5 washes, a small bottle of soapnut liquid, which is enough for 3 loads, a little sample of soapnut soap (this smells amazing!), instructions and a larger muslin bag that can be used for storing miscellaneous little items. If this product is as effective as it sounds, I’ll definitely be repurchasing. Keep an eye open for a review soon!

The Vegg_TVKThe Vegg also featured in this package (full size). I won’t be going into detail about it here, but you can read my review & recipe by clicking on the link.
A sweet treat was included in the shape of Goody Good Stuffwhich was so delicious that we ate it all up before we got a picture. You can read more about their products in my LABL Fair post.

Qi Tea

Last but not least, Qi tea samples were featured (sample size – 3 tea bags). I got Green Tea Plus,White Tea & Goji Berry Authentic China Green Tea. So far I’ve only tried the White Tea, but it was delicious and I’ll definitely be using my discount code to order some more!

Overall, this box was a definite success with a retail value of £15.28 and some really interesting products. I’d like to say thanks to Karris for creating such a great product, I’m very excited to see what’s in the next box!

      I’ve got a load in the machine with them right now, will report back on how well they work. I hope they’re good because I too find them very exciting x

    I subscribed and I’m soooo happy I did! I cannot wait for the next box already! I’m not the most adventurous person so this was brilliant for me because it means I try something new! I’ve never had green tea before (which I loved by the way!) I’ve never had sour sweets (also loved them!) and I’ve never had leek before! I cooked the leek and potato soup today but I didn’t like it but I’m happy none the less for the inspiration! I will be cooking it again without the leek!

      I think anything is great if it makes you try new vegetables. You’re absolutely right – you tried it and now know you don’t like it. It could have been you’re favourite thing in the world and you wouldn’t have known if you hadn’t tried. I don’t tend to stray out of my comfort zone either, especially eith household products, so I love the mix this box provides!
