REVIEW: MŪN Protect + Revive Moisturizer

MUNimALISM

My love for MŪN Skincare has been severely understated on the blog, as I find myself much more active on Instagram and its quick-to-share Stories, unfortunately depriving my blog of the good stuff and the things that I’m loving. That’s changing today, because I’m dedicating a special post to MUN Skincare’s newly-reformulated Protect + Revive Moisturizer. This has been my sole go-to since December (it’s the only moisturizer I’ve been using!) and it’s truly been getting my skin by for what feels like a particularly harsh winter for the South. Today we’ll be going over P+R’s ingredients, what’s different about its newly refined formula, and my overall experience with it. When MŪN so generously sent this moisturizer over to me, she also sent along their Japanese-inspired Anarose Hydrating Toner (which was already a big favorite of mine!) which I want to share a few notes on as well. HEADS UP – if you’re interested in a MUN discount code, scroll to the bottom of this review or find it on the sidebar!

The Poetry of Beauty & Rain: February Boxwalla Beauty feat. NINI ORGANICS

When things are going wrong in my life I look to my beauty products for therapy and I must share that Boxwalla’s latest beauty box has been a welcome respite from the insanity. A rare and destructive winter storm just passed over us here in the woefully unprepared southern states and beyond that I’ve totally been over the cold weather, the clouds, and other minor flooding disasters that were occurring in my home prior to the storm, and are still occurring now.

December Boxwalla Beauty – winter essentials feat. BLÜH ALCHEMY & LIVE BOTANICAL

I’m back this week to shower you all with MORE Boxwalla goodness! In my last post & review on the October box, I mentioned that there is a lot going on in the Boxwalla universe with the numerous limited edition gift offerings that were launched alongside their monthly boxes in time for the holidays. I went over that month’s box (which is currently still available on the store as a One-Time Box), the Fine Cosmetics limited edition skin + body box, and I gave a brief overview on the three limited edition haircare boxes that they have on offer. Since that post, I’ve had some time to get acquainted with the December box products and to my surprise, Boxwalla also sent along with it one of their haircare boxes which I have gotten to know and love – and am obsessed with it as you may be able to tell if you follow me on Instagram. We’ll be going over these two boxes today – all the details and my product experiences thus far.

Themed “The Textures of Winter“, the December Beauty Box* showcases three products that allow us to experience the gorgeous textures of Winter magic. It features three full-size products from two luxury brands, including: BLUH Alchemy’s Multi C Serum & freshly launched Active Relief Body Oil, and Live Botanical’s Sanctuary Barrier Balm. I’m thrilled to share that there’s still plenty of time to sign up for this box as of this posting – subscriptions are open until December 15th for last-minute holiday shopping. This box runs for $49.95 and has a whopping retail value of $250.

Today I’ll finally be sharing my thoughts on the October Beauty Box (which is still available as a one-time purchase!) and Boxwalla is gearing up for the holidays with some limited edition offerings, one box of which I will also be sharing today while giving details on the rest that are available at their store (hint, it’s hair care!).

Let’s start with the October beauty box first. Themed “The Logic of Finding Fine Things“, the October Beauty Box* features three full-size beautiful products from two innovative brands: Naturallogic and Fine Cosmetics.

PYT BEAUTY REVIEW | Day-to-Night Eyeshadow Palettes, Concealer, & More!

When PYT Beauty launched back in summer 2018 I was *all* about their sole launch of the original Day-to-Night eyeshadow palette, a collection of cool-toned neutrals. I didn’t jump on purchasing it though because I felt like I couldn’t justify buying more neutrals when I already owned more than enough neutral shades that I loved. Somehow their brand fell off my radar until earlier this year when I was seeing the warm version of their Day-to-Night palette everywhere and I was intrigued to see what the brand had become after not being in the loop on their line for 2 years.

Since my makeup collection (particularly my eyeshadow collection) had dwindled down to random bits over the last year (I legit stopped wearing makeup for a LONG time) I couldn’t stop checking out PYT’s eyeshadow palettes and decided that now would be the perfect time to give them a chance. Over the course of a month I purchased a few bits here and there and wound up with this haul of two palettes, a concealer, an eyebrow pencil, mascara, and a lip gloss.

NEW MAKEUP BITS: Kosas 10-Second Liquid Eyeshadow & Silk Naturals

The majority of the time I don’t purchase makeup and skincare in sizable hauls, so you’ll often catch me sharing new individual items on my Instagram, but I’m not as great about sharing those new products on the blog since I’m not sure how to fit them into posts. I finally figured out a good title for this post so today I’m sharing a few odd bits of makeup that I’ve been loving for the last 1-3 months from brands Kosas and Silk Naturals.
