SEE NEW Skincare X Dirty Lamb – The SEPT/OCT Skincare Box

See New Skincare’s latest skincare box has launched and this time they’re serving up a menu of 5 products from Dirty Lamb! Dirty Lamb is a new-to-me brand, but I gained immense trust with See New after a super positive experience with their previous Forest Rhapsody box (my first ever See New box!) so I had faith that the September/October Dirty Lamb box would be a good one.

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!

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.
