Boxwalla enthusiasts know that their green beauty boxes are an extraordinary value, and that the products themselves are nothing short of spectacular. Their carefully curated beauty boxes are a tremendous value, with steep discounts, and feature truly covet-worthy luxury organic beauty products.

According to Boxwalla, "The Theme for December is: A Brief History of Timeless Things. Each product in the December Beauty Box is a portal to travel through time and space, with ingredients that have been part of ancient cultures."
The December Beauty Box contains three products with a total retail value of $134.00:
Lepaar 24K Precious Face Oil ($60.00): Lepaar, an Australian holistic luxury skincare brand, created this highly effective face oil for all skin types. This antioxidant-rich, wild-crafted, sun-infused, handmade and cold-pressed luxury face oil gently exfoliates dead skin cells, deeply moisturizes even the most dehydrated and dry skin, and leaves it silky smooth and hydrated. It is lightweight, fast absorbing, and it leaves the skin with a pronounced luminous glow. It has a warm earthy aroma that calms and delights the senses, but it does fade upon absorption. 

According to Lepaar,

A precious sun-infused composition of 16 biodynamic, organic and wildcrafted botanicals. Mindfully chosen for their regenerating, age-proofing, moisturising, grounding, balancing and harmonising properties.

A high performance multi-purpose face oil that not only provides 24hr vitality, energises your skin, bestows radiant glow and helps prevent the signs of aging like no other, but also harmonises our spirit, centres our self and balances our whole being. Absorbs quickly, penetrates deeply.

Notes from Boxwalla: This is just a beautiful day time oil serum as it is full of antioxidants and sun-protecting ingredients. Johanna has designed this serum/oil to be regenerative, exfoliating, moisturizing, replenishing and as a 'do it all', for all skin types and for any time of the year.

Dafna's Personal Skincare Beyond Skin Deep Eye Care ($66.00): This is a truly unique under-eye treatment, described as a "serum-in-lotion", that is specifically formulated to treat the delicate eye area. The consistency is that of a very lightweight and fast absorbing gel that reduces the appearance of fine lines, dark circles and puffiness and lifts and tightens the skin. Furthermore, it brightens the skin and delivers serious hydration. It has a light herbal aroma that is neither irritating for my sensitive eyes, nor is it long-lasting.

According to Boxwalla,

This unusual under-eye treatment has been formulated by Dafna Shaham as a serum-in-lotion for the delicate eye area. Ayurveda meets Biotechnology to create a treatment that is uniquely effective and fast absorbing. Chicory Oligosaccharides and natural peptides stimulate collagen production and synthesis. Additionally the chicory oligosaccharides are injected into a 3D matrix that allows its sequential delivery to the skin under the eyes. This leads to an immediate lifting effect as well as a long term hydration and firmness to the delicate skin under the eyes. Aloe hydrates the skin, Rosehip reduces the appearance of fine lines, calendula extract reduces puffiness, hibiscus extract inhibits the breakdown of elastine keeping the skin elastic and soft. Eye care also wears beautifully under makeup as it is cream based rather than oil based.

Notes From Boxwalla: You need the tiniest amount of this, barely half a pump. Using your forefinger or ring finger, you tap it into the skin under the eye area. Dafna recommends tapping vs massaging the product in, as it helps it absorb better and ensures that not too much product is used. I also find that tapping a small amount works beautifully and works very effectively to brighten, smooth and de-puff the under eye area.
Ingredients: Aqua, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract*, Glycerin, Vitis Vinifera Seed Oil, Olea Europaea Fruit Oil, Cetyl Alcohol, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Ricinus Communis Seed Oil, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Hyaluronate, Calendula Officinalis Extract*, Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Extract, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein Extract, Cichorium Intybus (Chicory) Root Oligosaccharides, Caesalpinia Spinosa Gum, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Tocopherol, Gluconolactone, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Linalool, Geraniol, Citronellol, Citral. *Organic active ingredient with BIO certification.
Rebel & Mercury Botanical Candle in Cinnamon, Nutmeg & Clove ($8.00 for a custom tin): This delectable candle has an otherworldly aroma that is punctuated by top notes of sweet orange that give way to a refined combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove with a subtle undercurrent of cardamom. It smells like the holiday season distilled into a perfect little candle. As Boxwalla has noted, one can dip their fingers into the tin and actually use this as a solid perfume, and I have tried this and find it utterly hypnotic! I am transfixed my its warm holiday scent, and look forward to purchasing more Rebel & Mercury's candles.

According to Boxwalla,

The chosen scent is Cinnamon, Clove, Nutmeg, and is made completely with only essential oils and absolutes, in a proprietary base of a soy-free, palm-free coconut wax blend with a lead-free cotton wick. 

This best-selling scent is a warm blanket of a scent, with top notes of sweet orange that segues into clove, cinnamon  nutmeg and hints of cardamom. Beautifully enveloping, with a lovely throw, it is just perfect for winter and the holiday season

Nikki Sherritt, the creator of Rebel and Mercury (formerly Gabriel's Aunt) is something of a pioneer in the field of natural candle making and has been making natural candles for years, both for her own brand as well as for other brands.

Notes from Boxwalla: I first tried Nikki's candles around eight or so years ago and fell completely in love. Her scents are complex and addictive. So much so, that with some of the scents, I sometimes dip my fingers into the wax and use it as solid perfume. 
Overall Assessment: Another extraordinary green beauty box from Boxwalla. This would make the perfect holiday gift for the skincare enthusiasts on your list, and the phenomenal value makes this a perfect way to try luxury eco-beauty skincare products at a fraction of their retail price.

$49.95 from Boxwalla (Affiliate Links).
N.B.: The December Beauty box is available as a one-time purchase for holiday gifting.

  1. What a lovely box this month! I have never heard of a face oil that contained sun-protecting ingredients. I am very intrigued. And that candle sounds perfect for this time of year, though the spices in it would be wonderful for me any time!

    1. Boxwalla makes the most amazing luxury green beauty boxes, and I have discovered so many impressive brands and products through their boxes! While the price of the box is higher than many, it is always a fraction of the price of the total retail for the products enclosed. It's definitely a bargain in that regard.
