BOXWALLA The Wandering Woman's English Spring Box contains two full size products that are absolutely perfect for the season.

According to BOXWALLA,

Remember the Wandering Woman from last Summer's Beauty Boxes? Well she's back. And this time, she is very thirsty.

The very thirsty wandering woman decided to stop in England for a drink. Not at an English pub. But at a very English spring. The water sparkled like silver, with copper undertones. Oh this must surely be the prettiest Spring she thought she'd ever known. And she drank, as a gentle mist slowly came in view. She drank, as the morning dew kissed the leaves that grew. She sipped the silver serum for twelve beautiful days. And on the twelfth day, she smiled and slowly turned her gaze. As she sat by a window, she thought her heart would sing.

She thought the thoughts that Wordsworth wrote as he thought of Early Spring:

"Through primrose tufts, in that green bower,
The periwinkle trailed its wreaths;
And ’tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes.

Now pause. Imagine the breath of dewy flowers quenching your thirsty skin. This April, join us and the Wandering Woman for some lovely Springtime drinks.
BOXWALLA The Wandering Woman's English Spring Box features Amly Botanicals Alchemy Radiance Boost Silver Rich Face Mist (Value: $58.00 for 3.4 oz.) and Twelve Beauty Ideal Moisture Level Serum (Value: $67.00 for 1 oz.)
Amly Botanicals Alchemy Radiance Boost Silver Rich Face Mist is an uplifting face mist that boosts radiance and revives tired and stressed skin. The antioxidant-rich anti-aging formula boosts hydration, it nourishes the skin, and it elevates the mood. The aroma is a delectable blend of essential oils from which the Neroli, Jasmine and Rose Otto are punctuated by Frankincense. It is such a delight to the senses that I find myself reaching for it to luxuriate in its magnificence.

According to Amly Botanicals,

Our unique facial water is an intensely revitalizing and illuminating face mist that springs from Amly – a wild-flower meadow in East Sussex. The silver-rich spring water, known for its clarifying and healing properties, is infused with organic flowers, hedgerow fruit, native herbs and exquisite essential oils of Neroli, Jasmine, Rose Otto, Chamomile, Linden Blossom and Frankincense. The restorative mist is strengthened with highly concentrated, moisture-boosting Hyaluronic Acid and scientifically proven, skin-perfecting Copper Peptides and nourishing plant Probiotics.
Created for you, Amly hydrates and replenishes your skin and subtly enhances your mood. Its uplifting scent is reminiscent of a country walk through the changing seasons. It will leave your senses awakened and your skin enlivened. Naturally.

Directions: Shake well, close your eyes and spray liberally on to your face and neck. Breathe deeply to allow the aromatic oils to envelop and stimulate the senses, then enjoy radiant-looking skin. Use in the morning, evening and throughout the day, including over make-up, to boost skin vitality and luminosity.
