Time for another Triyit box!
Triyit is a product discovery club that allows you to try new products, at home, for free! It is a little bit like Influenster with one of the differences being that Triyit is actually UK based.
All you need to do is go to www.triyit.co.uk and create a personal profile, where you can tell them about your likes and dislikes, personal habits, like exercising, or what type of food you like etc. Then, every now and again you will receive a free box with some goodies in it, that match some part of your profile.
Unlike Influenster, you don’t have to fill out a survey every time before qualifying for a box, your personal profile automatically does that for you. After you qualify for a box Triyit will even send you a text message and email to let you know that there are some goodies on the way to you. However, you won’t know what the box contains until you actually open it, which brings an element of excitement too.
The products contained in the box are usually full size. All of this is completely free and all they ask for is that you share your reviews and pictures on social media in order to further qualify for more boxes. The more you share the more priority points you gain and the higher your chances to receive another one next time.
So, get some stuff for free and then talk about them. How much easier could it be? I highly recommend you sign up, you have nothing to loose and remember it’s completely free just click here.
If you want to see what was inside the previous Triyit boxes I received check out:
Enough chit chat, let’s get to this box and have a look at the products in more detail. These are short reviews that cover first impressions and experiences from using the products. For full reviews, including ingredient analysis and if I would recommend a product or not, check out: Bonds of Beauty (all articles here). Bear in mind that these are my personal opinions and that beauty is a very personal thing, we all have different skin, requirements and biological build which can influence things. What worked for me might not work for you and vice versa, please leave your comments below!
The Triyit box comes in a nice shade of orange and it has the Triyit logo at the top, some social media icons, and the Triyit website and moto on the sides. It’s a very sturdy box of good quality that you can reuse for storage or further crafts if you wish.
Inside the box there is a specific campaign booklet that contains more information about the products and a reminder leaflet to share pictures and reviews. There is also an envelope that contains a couple of discount offers on some of the products in the box which you can share with your friends and family or use them all up yourself!

The previous boxes I received were all food, drink and fitness based so I am beyond happy to have received a beauty box this time! Made my day!
The box contained 9 beauty products from the brand Beauty Kitchen and whoever receives this box will be one of the first to try their new and improved products. Very exciting!
Beauty Kitchen is a brand on a mission to create the most effective, natural and sustainable beauty products in the world. They are currently undergoing a brand make over which is why some products look different that others.
If you are in the UK you can find these products on the brand’s website or at Holland & Barrett which is currently selling them at discounted prices (33%)! Alternatively, use the discount code TRY20 to get 20% off the Beauty Kitchen products below. Must purchase from the brand’s website.
Let’s have a look at the products individually.
Beauty Kitchen Raw Inventions Mineral Shield Daily Primer
This primer looks very cute! I love the packaging and I love that it contains zinc oxide which protects from both UVA and UVB and in this case provides a respectable SPF 30.
This primer is very simple formulation wise and it only contains 8 ingredients. All are great though and suitable for all skin types, unless you have a coconut or sweet almond allergy.
The actual product is a thick white cream (colour and consistency might vary). It doesn’t feel particularly moisturising, in fact it feels a little dry when you apply it and it gives the skin a white colour. As a result, I would recommend wearing this after your moisturiser and before your foundation and not on its own.
It adds a little oiliness but nothing that cannot be managed with a little powder or other mattifying product and it works well under makeup. I actually thought that it covered my pores a little too which is a major bonus.
It has a very faint off-smell which you will likely not smell at all unless you literally put your nose on it.
This product lasts for 6M, is fragrance free, biodegradable and safe for coral reefs and other ecosystems. The tube shown contains 50mL and retails for £14.99.
All and all it’s not the most nourishing primer I’ve ever seen but it contains a decent SPF protection and all the ingredients contained are great, which makes this a good product overall.
This product is vegetarian friendly (contains beeswax). SCORE = 8/10
Beauty Kitchen Karine Jackson The Cleanser Repair and Protect Shampoo
This shampoo is apparently scientifically proven to deliver 7 incredible benefits for hair repair and protection but these benefits are not listed or explained on the product, so it is a little disappointing. I guess some of them are repair hair structure, remove pollution and seal in colour?
The packaging also looks very ugly and out of touch with the rest of the Beauty Kitchen products but that’s ok as the brand is currently undergoing a makeover. The actual shampoo product is a light yellow liquid gel.
The ingredients in this shampoo are good and it washed my hair well but unfortunately, I didn’t like the smell. It’s a minty-lemony old off-smell which doesn’t smell that bad initially but when you have lots of the product all over your hair it becomes more obvious. However, it’s a smell that you could get eventually used to, it’s not straight away repelling.
This product lasts for 6M, is suitable for all hair types and the bottle shown contains 75mL (travel size). I love products that are fragrance free but there are ways to manage natural off scents without letting a natural product smell so off. The smell is the biggest let down for me.
This product is vegan friendly and does not contain parabens or sulphates. A 250mL full size bottle retails for £12. SCORE = 6/10
Beauty Kitchen Natruline Lip Treatment
This little lip balm looks very traditional and similar to other products in the market but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
The product itself is an off-white with a hint of yellow balm that feels more like an oil than a balm when applied on the skin. The skin feels moisturised but only for a short period of time. This product also has a natural off-scent but it is subtle and you might not smell it unless you put your nose very close.
I love the simplicity of the product, it only contains 4 ingredients, but at the same time it is a downfall too. If it also contained a couple of deeper and longer moisturising ingredients it would be superior to other balms of its type.
This is not a bad product and it does what it says I just wished it moisturised and conditioned the skin for more than a couple of minutes. Even when I tried it on my hand knuckles and other dry areas (because lips get rid of products like that much faster) they didn’t feel any different than the rest of my hand which is a shame. I wouldn’t say that this is a quick fix for dry lips as the product states, but it might be a great addon for fixing dry lipsticks or making them slide more effortlessly.
This tin contains 20g, retails for £2.99 and the product lasts for 6M. SCORE = 7/10
Beauty Kitchen 60 Second Manicure
This product is essentially a hand scrub. You are supposed to rub it on wet hands, rinse off with warm water and then pat dry.
It worked well and my hands were very soft afterwards but I had to wash them with a hand soap before patting dry, as this product made them very oily.
Scrubbing is not the preferred method for removing dead skin cells, as some believe it can cause micro-cuts and damage to the skin (look for AHA and BHA containing body products), but this product did give me lovely soft hands and I was pleased.
The only downside is the off-smell which is also why I washed my hands afterwards to remove it, as well as the oiliness.
The ingredients contained are great however, the main ingredient is natural table salt which makes you think this product really shouldn’t be expensive. However, the price of £14.99 is not bad, especially considering how many uses you will get out of the 120g jar.
Speaking of jars though, this product contains microalgae and ingredients that are known to oxidise overtime so placing them in a jar is not ideal. Products like these are best kept in tubes so that they are exposed to air as little as possible. However, I realise that it’s very hard to put a thick scrub in a tube! What this essentially means is that the product might not smell or work the same after it’s been opened for a while.
The darker packaging at least protects the product from light and it gives it a very nice look. This is a product that will look nice in your bathroom.
Overall though I did like and will use this product and I love that they support he Seahorse Trust. SCORE = 8/10
Beauty Kitchen Night Halo Potent Sleep Mask
This mask is meant to be your night treatment that will nourish the skin whilst you sleep.
Like with all the Beauty Kitchen products the ingredients are good and for once I didn’t dislike the smell. It’s a refreshing lemony type of scent and although it’s nice and refreshing I thought that it’s not appropriate for a night product. You’re supposed to be relaxing and winding down not waking up. Nevertheless, there is no reason why you should do this mask only at night, you can enjoy it at any time of the day when you can spare a few minutes of me-time.
This mask has a balm texture and a light yellow colour. It’s very easy to apply and it feels nice and moisturising on the skin. It’s looks and feels like there is a lot of oil on the skin and it takes a long time until some of it gets absorbed in, so give it as much time as you have.
The product doesn’t specify if you are meant to wash any residues off afterwards but if you have oily skin, you definitely will want to remove any excess oils left.
It overall left my skin feeling deeply moisturised and soft. I love the packaging and how it matches the 60 second manicure product and I will definitely use it up.
This 60mL jar retails for £19.99 and the product lasts for 6M. It is suitable for vegeterians (contains beeswax) and for all skin types. SCORE = 8/10
Beauty Kitchen Miniature Heroes – Sustainable Beauty Celebrations
This cute looking cardboard package contains 4 miniature beauty products in gorgeous looking jars. It’s such a great idea and a nice way to get people to try them out.
These four products are vegan and never animal tested. They are also meant to be award winners and customer favourites so let’s have a more detailed look!
This pack retails for £10.
Beauty Kitchen Seahorse Plankton 5 Minute Miracle Mask
This mask has an off-white cream consistency and a subtle creamy scent with a hint of lemon. It is meant to stimulate the skin’s elasticity, reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and hydrate and protect the skin.
It feels nice on the skin and it leaves it soft and moisturised. I didn’t notice any miracles but it was overall a positive experience.
The ingredients are good and I love that it’s a 5 minute mask. This really leaves you with no excuse of not having time for some skincare love!
Again, this product would have been better off in a tube instead of a jar, to avoid any ingredient oxidation but at least the full size product jar looks nice!
A full size 60mL jar retails for £14.99. This product is vegan friendly and suitable for all skin types. This product was even a CEW awards finalist. SCORE = 8/10
Beauty Kitchen Seahorse Plankton Beauty Boosting BB Cream
This BB cream has a thick cream consistency and a very strong orange-like colour. I was initially really put off by the colour but it does go away as you work it into the skin. However, so does the coverage. You can either not work it all in and allow the orange colour to give you some coverage, but a silly skin shade, or work it all in and loose the coverage. It doesn’t really work as well as it should but it did provide a little soft focus (not coverage) on lines and pores.
The product has a soft creamy floral scent which is pleasant. The ingredients are good and it feels nice on the skin.
This product is suitable for all skin types and tones and a full size, 30mL tube retails for £14.99. SCORE = 5/10
Beauty Kitchen Free From Wonder Balm
This balm contains only 7 ingredients and with the exception of 1 that is present for formulation purposes, the rest will nourish your dry skin.
This balm has a yellow colour and it feels more like an oil on the skin. It also doesn’t moisturise for long but I thought that it moisturises for longer than the Natruline lip treatment above.
It has a very subtle scent that you will likely not smell unless you put your nose very close.
This product is suitable for all skin types and vegan. A full size, 12g package, retails for £3.99 which is a great price. This product has been a Beauty Shortlist Award Winner. SCORE = 8/10
Beauty Kitchen Abyssinian Oil Facial Moisture Cream
This face cream has a medium thickness, white cream consistency and it feels nice on the skin. This product smells the best out of all Beauty Kitchen products I’ve tried. It’s subtle but creamy and has a slight hint of something like cinnamon.
The ingredients are good but it’s definitely not the most skin nourishing cream out there. However, it does leave the skin feeling moisturised and soft. It is absorbed quickly and does not leave any residues behind.
This cream is vegan, fragrance free and suitable for all skin types. A 60mL jar retails for £19.99. SCORE = 8/10
Overall, this is my favourite Triyit box by far. I can’t believe how many products it contains and a lot of them are full size or travel size. AMAZING. I also really liked that it was one brand based, it almost gives the box an identity and a more special feeling. I really enjoyed all of these products and I will definitely use them all up. However, like it generally goes with sampling products, there are some that I wouldn’t purchase and some that I would. It’s a job well done by the Beauty Kitchen though because even the ones that I wouldn’t purchase are not due to the fact that they are bad products, I just know and have used some of the same type that are a little better or go that extra mile. Sampling out so many products from one brand and not finding at least one to say “it’s rubbish” is really great. I also love that their products are fragrance free.
All of these products are definitely worth a try out. My personal opinion still remains as:
Buy: 60 second manicure, Night Halo Potent Sleep Mask, Seahorse Plankton 5 Minute Miracle Mask, Abyssinian Oil Facial Moisture Cream
Maybe: Raw Intentions Mineral Shield Daily Primer, The Cleanser, Free From Wonder Balm
No: Natruline Lip Treatment, Seahorse Plankton Beauty Boosting BB Cream
