Suki Skincare Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser and Sensitive Cleanser Bar Value Set

Purchased (Affiliate Links)

As you remember, I recently reviewed the Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser, which I used religiously many years ago, and while I was looking around the Suki Official Amazon Store, I discovered a wonderful deal: Suki Skincare Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser and Sensitive Cleanser Bar Value Set. You get the Sensitive Cleansing Bar as a free gift when you purchase this set. I bought immediately, and I am considering buying a second one. I used the Sensitive Bar Soap years a go and liked it, and can't wait to try it again.

Here are the details: The 4 oz. Suki Skincare Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser is $37.00 and the Sensitive Cleansing Bar has a $10.00 value. Therefore, the Cleansing Bar is free!

Here is my review for the Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser, which I am in love with, in case you want to relive this blissful exfoliating cleanser:

"I am madly in love with Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser, and years ago it was my only daily cleanser. Then I started LSBB and began using a far wider range of products and somehow forgot about who much I loved this gem of an exfoliating facial cleanser. The lovely formula, which has the intoxicating scent of organic lemongrass extract, uses natural sugar to exfoliate the dead skin cells leaving your skin soft and silky smooth. I find it non-stripping and non-drying for my normal/combination skin, but if you have dry skin you would likely want to use it less often. I like to activate the light lather in my hands, which also breaks down some of the sugar, then with the lightest touch I massage it into my skin and rinse thoroughly. I use it a few times a week, and I always look forward to it since it is such a delectable treat to the skin and the senses."
According to Suki,

The Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser is just one example of the Suki philosophy come to life.  Not only does this cleanser purify pores, reduce toxic build-up & debris, promote radiant, smooth, even skin tone, smooth & soften complexion but it also reduces dry skin build-up & blemishes of all kinds, stimulates cellular renewal & jumpstarts collagen production. The perfect product for sloughing dry winter skin and prepping skin for summer.
 Suki is cruelty free, vegan, synthetic-free, toxin-free, organic ingredients, Leaping Bunny Certified, contains organic ingredients, sulfate-free, paraben-free, petro-chemical free, natural fragrance, natural, pure, clean, and safe for sensitive skin.

Features:
- Purifies pores, reducing toxic build-up & debris

- Smooths & softens complexion
- Reduces dry skin build-up & blemishing of all kinds

Directions: Do NOT use if you have rosacea or irritated open skin. Wet hands & blend a very small amount between palms to activate the rounding action of the sugar crystals. Use less water for more intense exfoliation. massage onto face, lips, décolleté & body once a day (am or pm) or 2-3 times per week based on sensitivity. rinse & remove with moist suki facial cloth.

Boxwalla Limited Edition Makeup+Skincare Box: Two Facets of Joy

 Press Release (Affiliate Links)

Boxwalla enthusiasts know that Boxwalla's eco-luxe beauty boxes are an extraordinary value, and that the products themselves are nothing short of spectacular. Their carefully curated green beauty boxes are a tremendous value, with steep discounts, and they feature truly covet-worthy cruelty-free organic beauty products. 

Boxwalla has a new limited edition box with makeup and skincare that is themed 'Two Facets of Joy.' It includes makeup and skincare from the brand Lovinah Skincare that was created by Joy Ekhator. My review of this gorgeous box is forthcoming.

About Joy:

Joy grew up in Benin in Nigeria where she experienced traditional herbal medicine through her grandmother. Her grandmother was an herbalist, a traditional doctor, bone setter (mending broken bones with herbs & traditional poultice together with splint) and midwife. She treated people with traditional herbs from her own farm. That legacy along with Joy's love of technology, meet in Lovinah (Joy's background is in Computer Science and she worked for 22 years in tech before starting Lovinah). Lovinah products use ancient plant ingredients gilded with cutting edge green skincare technology.

This box will ship to customers in August. This is NOT the August subscription box. Cost: $69.00 Retail Value: $144.00

In this Box:

1) Lovinah's Copper Peptide & EGF* Ampoule Set ($99.00): A watery, supercharged serum with Copper Peptides and vegan Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF). Copper peptides are potent skin regeneration actives that improve the appearance of skin, helping to increase skin thickness & reducing the appearance of wrinkles. EGF has a multitude of benefits including the acceleration of skin healing, skin renewal & the slowing down of the thinning of skin. It helps to boost collagen & elastin in the skin.

Note: This serum is like a booster serum and doesn't contain any lipid components. You can either layer under another water-based serum (and then oil on top) or directly under an oil. You can also add it like a booster to your moisturizer or serums (that do not contain acids) The only restriction is that it cannot be layered with vitamin C - L-Ascorbic acid, or added to any serum with vitamin C (oil soluble vitamin C esters are ok).

2) Lovinah's Eye Magic Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00) : A palette containing 10 richly-pigmented shades with jewel tones and classic neutrals. Made with creamy East African Shea Nilotica, Squalane & crushed gemstones, these universally flattering eye shadows are elegant with a silken texture, long lasting & blend & adhere beautifully onto the eyelids. 
*This box will ship to customers in August. This is NOT the August subscription box.

SNEAK PEEK: AFTELIER PERFUMES BERRY CLEANSING BALM

Press Release (Unaffiliated Links)

Mandy Aftel, the genius behind Aftelier Perfumes, just released Aftelier Perfumes Berry Cleansing Balm, and I wanted to share the details of this new creation before I review it.

According to Aftelier Perfumes,

The fresh berry scent is from the powerhouse trio of cranberry, raspberry, and blueberry seed oils. The rich golden color of the balm is from the kpangnan and berry oils, and it has a luxurious creamy texture and consistency that melts on contact with your skin.

The carefully chosen ingredients are:

- Raw Shea Butter – full of vitamins A & E and fatty acids, protects and moisturizes the skin.

- Kpangnan Butter - has a silky texture, with high amounts of stigmasterol, an anti-inflammatory plant sterol.

- Raspberry Seed Oil, Cranberry Seed Oil, Blueberry Seed Oil – with their delicious berry aromas, these oils are high in vitamins A & E and Omega 3, 6, & 9 fatty acids. Good for aging skin, they are rejuvenating & regenerative and help hold in moisture.

Directions: Scoop out a dime-sized amount of Berry Cleansing Balm onto your dry hands with the included spatula. Massage thoroughly onto your dry face, easing tension and drawing out dirt and toxins. Remove by pressing clean DRY washcloth into the skin. Do NOT rub.

"There’s a synergy in the base oils chosen for my cleansing balm and cleansing oil, and the berry and geranium scents layer beautifully. Their individual properties are enhanced when used together, making them more effective and nurturing.. I like to do a dry double oil cleanse on my face in 2 steps, starting with this Berry Cleansing Balm and following with my Geranium Cleansing Oil."
