This week the Makeup Wars! Team is featuring their favorite splurge products, and while $49.95 for a Boxwalla Beauty Box is a truly incredible bargain for the three full-size luxury organic skincare products, it may be more than some of you are used to spending on a subscription beauty box. Therefore, I wanted to take this opportunity to highly recommend Boxwalla because their beautifully curated Beauty Boxes are absolutely incredible, and if there is one subscription box to get, this is the one.
Boxwalla August Beauty Box is 'Summer Comes Softly' showcases three beautiful full-sized products that soften and pamper the skin, and delight the senses. The August box, a retail value of $131.00, costs a mere $49.95 and it includes free US shipping. There are still August boxes available, and I cannot sufficiently underscore the extent to which this great bargain is a worthy investment. This covet-worthy collection includes two extraordinary products from Odacité and one from Henné Organics, and you really won't want to miss out on them.
Green beauty products often get the bad rap of being boring & ineffective. The Beauty Box challenges that notion and lets you experience the most effective and nutrient-rich beauty products we have experienced. Always cruelty-free.
Odacité's Oleosomes Time Release Delivery Crème (Retail: $68.00 for 1.69 oz.): This lovely, ultra-nourishing crème is lightweight and exceedingly fast absorbing, and it melts into the skin with its gorgeous velvety texture. While it is deeply hydrating, it leaves behind no greasy residue, but instead leaves the skin luminous and dewy. It boasts an antioxidant-rich emollient formula that provides sustained hydration, in part, because of its highly effective Oleosome delivery system. Skin is left very soft, smooth, supple and refreshed– with improved texture. Furthermore, ingredients such as hyaluronic acid plump fine lines and bind moisture, while calendula soothes and heals inflammation. It has a very faint herbal aroma that is very pleasant, but it does not linger. This crème is an absolute masterpiece, and it a short amount of time has already achieved holy grail status in my collection.
According to Odacité,
This high performing formula allows for a delivery of actives and hydration over the course of the entire day/night.
Oleosomes, real energy storehouses found naturally in seeds, melt upon contact with the skin, steadily releasing their contents for ongoing delivery of actives and moisture. Supercharge with our Serum Concentrates to create a skin remedy that is both long-lasting and targeted.
Aloe vera boost hydration, antioxidants rich tea extracts slow down the aging process, hyaluronic acid plumps up time lines and wrinkles, calendula soothes skin inflammation and carrot seed oil revitalizes the skin - to create a formula that instantly refreshes the skin with divine hydrated texture.
Directions: Use alone as the ultimate moisturizer, delivering a steady dose of highly effective hydration. Supercharge with a targeted Serum Concentrate to create your customized and time release skin remedy.
Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis [Aloe Vera] Leaf Extract, Calendula Officinalis [Calendula] Flower Extract, Camellia Sinensis [Green Tea] Leaf Extract, Butyrospermum Parkii [Shea] Butter, Carthamus Tinctorius [Saflower] Oleosomes (and) Sorbitan Olivate, Cetearyl Olivate, Glycerin, Aqua, Cetyl Palmitate (and) Sorbitan Palmitate, Daucus Carota [Wild Carrot] Sativa Seed Oil, Limnanthes Alba [Meadowfoam] Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Alcohol, Simmondsia Chinensis [Jojoba] Seed Oil, Crithmum [Sea Fennel] Maritimum Extract, Rosmarinus [Rosemary] Officinalis Leaf Extract, P-Anisic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate. 83% Organic and 100% Plant Derived. GMO free and gluten free.
Odacité's Pa+G Papaya-Geranium Serum Concentrate Hyperpigmentation (Retail $39.00 for 0.17 oz.): This beautiful beauty oil is formulated to specifically target hyperpigmentation. The formula boasts an elegant feather-weight consistency that sinks in immediately– leaving skin with a beautiful glow. It can be used as a spot treatment for hyperpigmentation, or all over if you have larger areas of discoloration. It effectively softens and fades sunspots over time, and it evens the complexion. The aroma, which is punctuated primarily by the Geranium, is very pleasant and calming, but it does fade soon after it is absorbed by the skin.
I must say, as I always do, that it is imperative that you have your doctor evaluate any areas of discoloration before you begin treating them on your own. What may appear to be nothing more than a benign sunspot or freckle could actually prove to be precancerous or cancerous, and it is best not to begin applying topicals until you know that you are in the clear.
According to Odacité,
Odacité's Pa+G Serum Concentrate has been specifically formulated to treat hyperpigmentation of the skin that could be as a result of acne/breakouts, sunspots or age spots. Pa+G contains Ecuadorian Papaya Oil and Egyptian Geranium oil and is a wonderful way to 'soften' scars and, with consistent use, make them disappear. This serum can be used alone as a spot treatment. It is also absolutely lovely when mixed in with the oleosomes delivery cream and applied all over the face to even out the skin as well as prevent hyperpigmentation.
• Dark spot corrector formulated to fade brown spots and prevent the apparition of further skin pigmentation.
• Papaya fruit enzymes dissolve dead skin cells unveiling a fresh and more even-toned glow.
• Geranium and Lemon oils combine to further encourage a more evened-out skin tone and provide wrinkle reduction.
• In aromatherapy, Geranium oil is known to have a harmonizing effect on the mind & body, helping to avoid emotional roller coasters.
Directions: Use as a spot treatment by massaging onto brownspot. Or supercharge your daily dose of créme by mixing in a couple drops of Pa+G and use as a preventative treatment.
Ingredients: Highest-grade cold-pressed certified virgin Papaya (Carica papaya) oil, Certified organic Geranium, Lemon (Pelargonium graveolens, Citrus limon) essential oils, Certified GMO-free Vitamin E (Tocopherols) oil. Gluten-free.
According to Henné Organics,
Inspired by Swedish nature, our Nordic Berries Lip Exfoliator brings a little piece of Sweden into your home. The scent is reminiscent of fresh picked forest berries, and the rich color will stand out beautifully on any bathroom counter.
Directions: Apply to damp lips and gently massage in a circular motion. rinse with warm water. best if used 3-4 times per week. For external use only. store in a cool, dry place.
Tip: after exfoliating and rinsing off the lips, apply a layer of lip balm to lock in the moisture and keep the lips extra smooth.

This box has been on my radar. I have subscribed to BeautyHeroes for a long time and love them. I am off and on with Pearlesque and Art of Organics. Have you tried any of them? If so, how do they compare with Boxwalla in your opinion?ReplyDelete
Boxwalla is absolutely incredible, and I highly recommend them. I have not received a single dud in their boxes, and I have been able to try brands that I may not have otherwise known about. I have not tried any of the boxes that you have mentioned, but definitely would like to! I can't say how they compare to Boxwalla, but I can say that I have never been more impressed by subscription boxes as I have been by Boxwalla. They carefully curate their boxes, and only select the highest quality green beauty products.Delete
As an aside....Did Ana ever return to Barneys BH? Is there an alternate contact there if she has not?ReplyDelete
Hi Cindy, Ana has been back since the beginning of the year!Delete
Oh, that is great and a little surprising as I don't recall you mentioning her as a contact in the last event.Delete
