February Boxwalla Beauty – Moonlight & Silver Sleep

I’ll just jump right in with the praise: the February Beauty Box* easily makes my top 3 favorites from Boxwalla! It’s that good, you guys. It’s that incredibly exciting (bi-monthly) time to share Boxwalla’s latest curation and I for one am happy to be reunited with Amly Botanicals, which I will dive into more below.

Themed “Moonlight & Silver Sleep“, this month’s box ($165 value) features two products that will help you slip into sweet nights of soothing bliss. There’s also an underlying theme of sweetness and softness that pairs well with the month of February. This box includes two full size products – Amly Botanicals newly launched Beauty Sleep Facial Mist, and MUN Skincare’s Aknari Brightening Youth Serum (which comes in a cute MUN travel pouch!) – both chock full of night-time beneficial ingredients to regenerate and nourish the skin.

Bee’ing Mindful – Pure Honey Skincare by Marin Bee

The biggest thing I’ve come to appreciate about beauty brands in the green beauty space is that many of them support organizations that benefit us, animals, the Earth and land, or in this case, the bees! That is why I’m excited to share the scoop on Marin Bee, a brand that delivers beauty products made with pure and raw honey, in effort to support their very own non-profit, the Planet Bee Foundation. Not only does this brand support a great (and important) cause, these products are just dang good!

December Boxwalla Beauty – A Brief History of Timeless Things

Nothing makes you realize how fast time flies by like receiving subscription boxes! In this case it’s bi-monthly, but I can’t believe I’ve been trying out and reviewing the Boxwalla beauty boxes for one whole year now. Today, I’m bringing you their final beauty box of 2017!

Themed “A Brief History of Timeless Things“, the December Beauty Box* ($134 value) features 3 products, each a portal to travel through time and space, with ingredients that have been a part of ancient cultures. December’s excellent beauty product selection includes a golden sun-infused facial oil from Lepaar, a lotion-y eye serum from Dafna’s Skincare, and custom size coconut wax-based candle from Rebel & Mercury. Each of these products tells stories that began at least 5000 years ago. The last beauty box featuring H is for Love was my absolute favorite of this year, but this one is hotly coming in second. I’m a sucker for rich green beauty luxuries and I was really excited to experience new-to-me brands this go-round.
