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.

October Boxwalla Beauty Review + New Limited Edition Boxes!

Get ready for a packed Boxwalla review! 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.

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!

Bloomiss Naturals Review + An Instagram Giveaway!

B-l-o-o-m-i-s-s: A word that encompasses a (blooming) beautiful woman (miss) when she is striving to be her very best…

Bloomiss Naturals, a Canadian aromatherapy and skincare + beauty line founded by the lovely Crystal, was created and inspired by two specific reasons: her love for natural and organic products (trying to eliminate toxic products from her daily life) and for the calming effect that creating and making had on her. Crystal struggled with infertility and the stressful emotions that come along with it and says that having a Type A personality has her in a mode of “go, go, go” with never being able to shut her mind off, so the creation process and her actual aromatherapy products themselves have been a big change on her life. Bloomiss offers a decent selection of skincare and body care including day and night moisturizers, a serum, a face mask, body lotions and scrubs, super pretty lip glosses, and range of aromatherapy rollerballs.

EMPTIES Vol. 1 – Stark Skincare, H IS FOR LOVE + More

It’s been a hot minute (more like a hot year) since I’ve shared some empties! I used to combine empties and mini-hauls in my monthly “green beauty journal” posts, but I’ve since stopped posting those because I don’t try many new products (or quickly use up products) to have content for monthly posts. This will be my new way of sharing empties, breaking them down into short volumes.
