Perhaps the Butterflies Are Real… June Boxwalla Beauty | LOVINAH SKINCARE

PERHAPS THE BUTTERFLIES ARE REAL…

It feels like a good minute (a good 4 months, more like!) since we’ve last chatted on Boxwalla’s latest offerings which has me thrilled to bring you this month’s review. June’s box reunites us with efficacious and insanely sensorial Lovinah Skincare, as last featured in their August beauty box (review here) and in the infamous limited edition makeup + skincare box that brought us their gorgeous eyeshadow palette.

Themed “Perhaps the Butterflies are Real“, Boxwalla’s June Beauty Box* showcases three products from Lovinah, including two full-sizes of their Power Vitamin C Cleansing Balm and Blue Butterfly Stem Cell Hydration Mask, and a 30ml trial-size of their brand new launch – the Goddess Glow Shimmering Body Oil. I’ll be sharing everything you need to know on these lovely items today and while subscriptions have since closed, I’m happy to report that the June box is now available for purchase as a One-Time box at the Boxwalla shop.

A Summer Night’s Ritual with YINA: Clarify Botanical Serum & Bian Stone Gua Sha

Review on Yina's Clarify Botanical Serum and Bian Stone Gua Sha

A Routine for Self Care

It’s officially the first week of Summer and I’ve been itching to share my new nightly ritual for the season that includes two pieces from Yina’s re-launched skincare collection. I adored a number of items from their original collection, first having experienced their Lucent mist & oil duo courtesy of Boxwalla’s summer 2019 beauty box, and later others including their cleanser, sheet masks and decolletage balm all of which were kept for the brand re-launch.

Spring in Spain: April Boxwalla Beauty Review | TWELVE BEAUTY

Spring has sprung, nature’s in bloom, and it’s also time for Boxwalla’s latest seasonally appropriate beauty box to launch – things are looking up friends! Boxwalla’s April Beauty Box reunites us with Spanish-brand Twelve Beauty and features two products to help calm stressed skin + fortify the skin’s barrier during this seasonal transition for optimum health and radiance – I know I certainly need all the help I can get during this time.

Themed “Spring in Spain“, the April Beauty Box* includes full sizes of Twelve Beauty’s Intelligent Frontier Facial Oil – a lightweight oil serum brimming with nutrition and Nutritive Repair Emulsion – a night time barrier repair cream with an ultra light finish. This box has a total retail value of $287, but as usual it rings in at just $49.95.

Subscriptions have since closed, but I come bearing great news because One-Time April Beauty Boxes are now available on the shop!

Meet Cocokind’s NEW Sake Body Lotion!

Isn’t dry body skin the absolute worst? Since my teens I’ve been dealing with what feels like exceptionally clinically dry skin – so dry that it feels like it burns! Most lotions and creams either don’t cut it for me, or they’re so heavy that they exacerbate the KP (keratosis pilaris) on my arms by clogging pores up. I quite like body oils, but I need the hydrating benefits that moisturizers provide as well, so I can’t go without it. I’ve been pretty loyal to CeraVe over the last decade – here and there I’ll try a more natural and cleanly formulated moisturizer but my skin will reach its threshold and back to CeraVe I go. There’s nothing wrong with CeraVe of course, especially since it works, but again I’d like to find a more naturally formulated moisturizer that will meet my needs so that I can avoid the conventional stuff.

Last month when I received Cocokind’s email about the launch of their new Sake Body Lotion I found myself so compelled and drawn to purchase it, and so I did not long after it launched. Microbiome-supporting products are very trendy at the moment, but as someone with dry skin I’ve long had barrier health in mind when it comes to my products so naturally this lotion felt like it was made for me. Alongside the new body lotion I also bought their in-shower scrubbing clay, which will be making an appearance in this post because it’s a great sidekick to this lotion.

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.
