Here’s a brief summary of the 4 different boxes offered: The Beauty Box features non-toxic, cruelty-free full and travel-sized products made by small businesses. The Food Box includes artisanal goodies such as jams, chocolates, coffee, and more. The Film Box will contain two films along with inserts with detailed information on each film. Finally, the Book Box contains 3 books and a fun book-related product or accessory. You can sign up for multiple boxes or switch between them as often as you like.
Subscriptions are $49.95/box and shipping is included.
I was recently sent their latest Beauty Box for review, so…
Let’s see what’s in the April 2016 Boxwalla Beauty Box!
The box! As mentioned in all of my previous reviews, Boxwalla’s boxes and information inserts are made of tree-free paper which is handmade from cotton scraps. Definitely a box you’ll want to repurpose!
A peek inside! Everything was well protected with bubble wrap and packing peanuts.
The theme for April’s box was “FACEts of Spring” and contained products that offer “color, renewal, hydration, scent, and glow”. The info card listed all of the items inside, along with how to use them and why they were chosen.
Wonderland Organics Soothe Serum ($39.99) – Designed to work with all skin types (even sensitive!), this oil-based serum evens out your skin tone and gives it a nice hydration boost. It’s infused with organic lavender oil so you can enjoy its aromatherapeutic properties as you pamper your skin.
Axiology Vegan Lipstick in “Noble” ($28) – Subscribers were given the option to choose from 4 different shades of this full-sized lipstick. I went with “Noble”, which their website described as “hybrid peach-pink tone”. Thankfully (for me), it goes on pretty sheer — though it looks a bit more orange-y than I would have expected. Ah well. The 100% vegan formula features a variety of organic oils including avocado, castor, grape seed, and coconut.
Garden of Wisdom Blue Mallow Hyaluronic Acid Serum ($6.95) – This facial serum contains a healing blend of Blue Mallow and L-Carnosine, which work together to help soften rough and damaged skin. Blue mallow extract is a natural anti-inflammatory, allowing it to effectively soothe irritated skin, while L-Carnosine protects cells with its anti-aging properties. Use after cleansing and toning, but before applying other oils or creams.
Garden of Wisdom Pineapple/Red Wine Enzyme Gel ($8.90) – Garden of Wisdom’s Pineapple/Wine Exfoliating Gel claims to remove dead skin and restore the skin’s natural glow, leaving it smooth and healthy. It’s made with fresh pineapple, which acts as a great enzyme-rich exfoliant that also helps to control acne (yay!). It also includes burgundy wine — another natural exfoliant/antioxidant. Oh, and yes, it does smell delicious! 😉
Garden of Wisdom Healing Lip Balm ($12.85) – An ultra-healing lip balm made with plenty of hydrating ingredients including coconut cream, sweet almond oil, cocoa butter, avocado oil, manuka honey, and more. Use it alone or before applying lipstick.
Once again, a nicely curated collection of products from Boxwalla Beauty Box. I couldn’t done without two different serums, but no biggie. At least it’s something I regularly use. 😉 The overall value was impressive at just under $97 — nearly double the cost of the entire box!
