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.
