October Boxwalla Beauty Review: AFRICAN BOTANICS Le Masque Hydralift Intense

dream a little dream of me”

African Botanics joined Boxwalla this October for another beauty box curation (you may remember their products from last August and October’s boxes) and I couldn’t be more ready to rave about this box because of the immediate and long-lasting results I have seen with the featured product. I meant to get this review up sooner but simply didn’t have the time – however! it means that I had more time to thoroughly test this beaut of a serum from African Botanics and that is always great for you readers!

Themed “Dream A Little Dream of Me“, the October Beauty Box* showcases a product from African Botanics – the Le Masque Hydralift Intense serum – that is perfect for a little bit of daydreaming as well as to nudge you into the sweetest dreams at night. This multi-tasker is an overnight hydrating mask/serum formulated to increase moisture levels, lift, firm, smooth, replenish, and brighten skin. It’s essentially a lightweight but hard-working facelift in a bottle and this stuff WORKS, which I can’t wait to share more on below.

Although subscriptions for this box have ended, it’s now available in the Boxwalla store as a One-Time October Beauty Box! These are one-time non-renewing purchases that don’t require you to subscribe to the box. These of course make for great holiday and birthday gifts as well!

The Intrepid Pattern of Plants: October Boxwalla Beauty Review

The October Boxwalla beauty box featuring African Botanics Resurrection Cell Recovery Serum.

Considered a “sequel” of sorts to the August box, the October beauty box from Boxwalla is double featuring African Botanics! The last box featured their anti-aging Fleurs d’Afrique Intensive Recovery Oil and this month’s box includes a similarly themed serum that is said to work and layer well with their facial oil. Subscriptions have since closed, but if you missed out you’ll be happy to know that one-time boxes are still available to purchase while supplies last!

Themed “The Intrepid Pattern of Plants“, the Boxwalla October Beauty Box* is showcasing African Botanics Resurrection Cell Recovery Serum, a night-time aloe-based hydrating serum that brightens, firms, plumps, and rejuvenates the complexion. It’s specifically an anti-aging serum, replete with antioxidants, peptides, retinol, and a bounty of other skin-loving extracts. The star of this show is the Resurrection plant extract which is known for its regenerative and healing properties.

LEAN ON ME: August Boxwalla Beauty | African Botanics

Tell me a story under a Marula tree
Tell me a story of luxury.

Flowers float in an African breeze,
When they touch your face, the worries cease.

Tell me a story under a Baobab tree
Tell me the story of eternity..

Light as a feather, filled like the sea
With wisdom from future, and history.

Tell me a story of nature, of science,
Tell me a story of both combined.

Slowly I sip from this salubrious story 
Softly it whispers, ‘Lean on me’.

As beautifully written above by Lavanya of Boxwalla foundry, her poem is an ode to the theme of Boxwalla’s August beauty box which happens to be including the efficacious African Botanics! This month, the beauty box is showcasing their Fleurs d’Afrique Intensive Recovery Oil*, a product one can truly lean on thanks to its multi-correcting powerhouse of ingredients including marula oil, vitamin C, retinol, essential fatty acids, coQ10, and more.
