From the Earth, Slowly: December Boxwalla Beauty Review | LEPAAR

I’m posting this review a lot later than I intended, but website issues love to get in the way of making things happen!

Also, this blog reached its 4 year anniversary this week! If you’ve stuck around with me for this long and still find my reviews informative and enjoyable, I must say thank you for reading and supporting this hobby of mine! I know that my posts are fewer in between these days, but I truthfully don’t have as much content to post because I don’t test and purchase as many products as I used to. I’ve settled into a groove of what I like, I’m more aware of what my skin likes and doesn’t like, and I try to have moments with consistency although that doesn’t usually last. I’m incredibly grateful and appreciative of the brands that still send me PR products to test (I’m in disbelief about it to this day, it feels like a small mark of success!) like Boxwalla has. This December box marks my 3 years that I have been reviewing the ever excellent Boxwalla beauty boxes and I’m eager to see what curations Lavanya has in store for 2020.

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.
