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.
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.

In this Box:
1) Lovinah's Copper Peptide & EGF* Ampoule Set ($99.00)
2) Lovinah's Eye Magic Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00)
Lovinah's Copper Peptide & EGF* Ampoule Set ($99.00): I am just starting to use this, but here is what you need to know: This is 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."
According to Lovinah,
High-tech 1% Copper Tripeptide GHK-Cu and EGF (epidermal growth factor) booster is the perfect powerful antioxidant treatment to help promote beautiful skin. High performing and unique formulation that combines Copper Tripeptide GHK-Cu and EGF to rehydrate, restore, and repair the skin . This is a beautiful skin friendly and fast acting rejuvenation ampoule, to visibly hydrate, calm, soothe, tone, lift and firm skin for a more dewy and refreshed look. Each ampoule is a 5ml concentrated solution to help renew, repair and rejuvenate the skin.
This highly concentrated 4-week ampoule treatment with 1% Copper Tripeptide GHK-Cu and EGF (epidermal growth factor) will intensely saturate the skin with moisture, vitamins, minerals and nutrients. Use both in the morning and evening for best result. The ampoule comes with a glass dropper pump to help dispense product.
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).
Lovinah Eye Magic Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00): This palette is utterly gorgeous– the extent to which I gasped when I opened the box and saw each of the richly pigmented shades twinkle in the natural light can't be emphasized enough. The palette is a perfect balance of neutrals and jewel tones, and the texture is sublime. Each powder shadow is velvety and creamy to the touch, and every single shade is perfection. Not a single one of them is in the least bit dry or patchy– including the mattes. All of the shadows glide across the skin effortlessly, deposit color evenly, blend to perfection and they are long wearing. It is a lovely assortment of finishes from mattes to foils to metallics, and they are a delight to wear.
According to Lovinah,
Eye Magic is a curated luxury collection of 10 richly-pigmented shades with jewel tones and classic neutrals that melts into skin to create ravishing eye effect. Invoke endless ravishing looks with this Nilotica, Squalane and crushed gemstone based eyeshadow.
Eye Magic Eyeshadow palette features a unique concept to easily create gorgeous eye looks. It includes foil, matte and metallic shades with silky-soft textures. Each eye shadow contains high percentage of pure pigments to provide a long-lasting, with strong color payoff. It is extremely buildable, blendable and easily adhere to the eyelid.
