About African Botanics,
African Botanics was founded by the husband & wife duo of Julia & Craig Noik in 2012. The creation of African Botanics was inspired by Julia & Craig’s experience with indigenous South African ingredients that have been used for centuries in South Africa, to protect the skin against harsh weather conditions. They choose extraordinarily high quality ingredients, sustainably sourced from places where they grow wild in unpolluted environments, untouched by any farming method or human interference. These wild harvested ingredients are then married to cutting edge technology to achieve a skincare experience that feels both luxuriously wholesome & truly cutting edge & revolutionary.
The Fleurs D'Afrique Oil Serum contains wild-harvested marula oil bottled at the source, night blooming flowers from ancient baobab trees, intoxicating jasmine & rose, powerful resurrection extract & other African desert & bush plants, marine blue micro-algae sustainably sourced from the French Riviera, vegetable-derived retinol liposome, vitamin C ester, CoQ10 and so much more. This is an incomparably beautiful feather-light elixir, that African Botanics has created by sourcing the most exquisite bounty from the natural world & gilding it so thoughtfully with the latest scientific technology.
I am thrilled to share the Boxwalla August Lean on Me Beauty Box featuring African Botanics Fleurs d'Afrique Intensive Recovery Oil, and I am elated that I was able to introduce Lavanya from Boxwalla to Julia and Craig Noik from African Botanics. This collaboration is among the most impressive that I have ever seen, and I am truly honored to be partnering with Boxwalla and African Botanics to host an amazing giveaway (details below).

According to African Botanics,
From a world of truly wild and remote locations far from all civilization and light pollution in the most southern hemisphere of Africa, there is an eternal beauty that endures all time.
Exotic night blooms, indigenous African desert and bush plants that have adapted to survive the challenges of their environment are harnessed and captured with a potent concentration of highly advanced marine biotechnology that is packed with anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, soothing and healing properties.
African Botanics Fleurs d’Afrique Intensive Recovery Oil is a highly concentrated luxury oil that is lightweight in texture and fast absorbing. The texture, is itself, ultra-silky and it leaves skin feeling like the softest cashmere conceived. It has an utterly intoxicating aroma that is a delectable fusion of the Jasmine Grandiflorum, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil, Kalahari Melon Seed Oil and Marula Seed Oil. It is a warm and earthy floral that delights the senses, calms the mind and nourishes the skin. During the entire experience of using this precious oil, one is reminded that it is unlike anything else previously imagined– let alone actually created. It is an oil to be savored, and the tactile and sensory experience is so exquisite that one immediately slows down to really relish the experiential component of this highly effective ultra-luxe beauty oil.
African Botanics asserts,
According to African Botanics,
With a unique delivery system that penetrates deeply, this light multi-correcting phyto-elixir stimulates skin cell renewal, refines, protects and envelopes the skin with finest Damask Rose, regenerating Immortelle flower, restorative soothing plant extracts, free radical-quenching CoQ10 and a distinct African Oil Complex which forms a powerful essential fatty acid matrix of high levels of Omegas 3, 6, 7 & 9 to fade and fight the signs of aging skin: fine lines and wrinkles, blemishes, dark spots, hormonal imbalances, inflammation, redness, dryness and sagging skin.
Who is this made for: All skin types, including skin exposed to urban stress, pollution, harsh, dry climates, sun damage and is recommended for hormonal, inflamed, mature, unbalanced and sensitive skin.
I have used African Botanics Fleurs d’Afrique Intensive Recovery Oil daily since before it launched (in 2016), and I have noticed a remarkable shift in the quality and overall appearance of my complexion. Truth be told, I knew it was a very special facial oil after my first use, but the length of time that I have used this is phenomenal oil is proof positive that this is, indeed, no ordinary face oil.
I simply apply a few drops to my freshly washed skin, that is still warm and slightly damp, and gently press in and release the oil into my face, neck and décolletage, as recommended. Skin is immediately left with a gorgeous, pronounced luminosity and an ethereal glow. As previously noted, African Botanics Fleurs d’Afrique Intensive Recovery Oil sinks in immediately, but it neither leaves behind a greasy film, nor does it require a long wait before finishing up the skincare routine or applying makeup.
My skin is notably different in that the overall texture is more even in tone and the small areas of light hyperpigmentation have noticeably faded. My fine lines are softened and my skin appears more taut and lifted. Furthermore, it effectively encourages skin cell-turnover to eliminate dull and dry dead skin cells in order to reveal luminous fresh skin.
This oil balances skin, and has regulated my active T-zone while simultaneously fighting redness and inflammation during my monthly hormonal cycle. I also found it remarkable that it healed a hormonal breakout overnight because of its ability to regulate hormonal skin and radically reduce inflammation.
While I do not have particularly enlarged pores, I have noted that mine are now far less noticeable. Additionally, the pores that have always been prone to clogging on my nose and chin no longer appear congested.
African Botanics claims that African Botanics Fleurs d’Afrique Intensive Recovery Oil will leave skin, "luminous, more youthful with increased firmness, elasticity and clarity" and I can attest to the veracity of this statement. This lovely oil leaves skin soft, supple, hydrated and luminous unlike anything else that I have tried.
• First signs of aging: fine lines, wrinkles and loss of firmness
• Dullness, dry, aging skin with uneven skin tone and pigmentation
• Hormonal and sensitive skin. Inflammation, redness and irritation from breakouts, sun damage and environmental exposure
• Excess oil, acne-prone, seborrheic and unbalanced skin
• Enlarged pores and clogged pores
Jasmine Grandiflorum: Exotic, sensual and mesmerizing, Jasmine flowers grab the most attention during their fullest blooms at midnight. It takes about 8,000 hand-picked Jasmine blossoms to extract 1 ml of its essential oil. Studied and known for its ability to promote skin elasticity, increase skin's moisture content and cellular renewal while uplifting, calming and combating acne. Jasmine has antidepressant, aphrodisiac, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic benefits and acts as a skin tonic for sensitive, hormonal, dry and irritated complexion.
Damask Rose: A hormonal skin balancer, Rose creates a feeling of calm and well-being. High in antioxidants, rich in vitamin C, it is excellent for reducing redness and skin inflammation. Rose possesses powerful healing, anti-aging and purifying properties since the ancient times.
Marine Microalgae Extract from Cylindrotheca Fusiformis: The sea has always been an immense source of precious materials, nutrients and inspiration to humanity as a whole. The origin of microalgae starts almost at the beginning of life itself. They are microscopic single-cell organisms that can survive independently, feed and multiply ensuring the functioning of major biological cycles and the maintenance of biodiversity on Earth.

Rich in antioxidants, amino acids (EPA), Omega-3, minerals, sugars, carotenoids and peptides with incredible cell-renewal properties. • Offers soothing and anti-inflammatory benefits and is well-known for maintaining good skin condition and structure. Calms and plumps the skin. Healing and ideal for all skin conditions, from Rosacea to acne.
• A powerful anti-wrinkle active and antioxidant MARINE MICROALGAE acts to remove free radicals and helps prevent cell structure damage in the dermis layer. It stimulates the synthesis of collagen (a protein responsible for supporting skin growth and organisation) and elastin (helping to maintain skin elasticity, tone and texture).
Vitamin A: A potent antioxidant that converts to Retinol when absorbed by the skin, leading to increased collagen production and plumped skin.
Vitamin C: Brightens, tightens and repairs the skin. Protects, restores and increases the longevity of skin cells.
Coenzyme Q10: An antioxidant that aids in neutralizing free radicals and supports the building of Collagen and Elastin, both of which reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Helps diminish the appearance of discoloration caused by the sun damage.
Distinct African Oil Complex (Kalahari Melon, Mongongo And Marula): Forms an oil matrix that allows incorporation of high levels of Omegas 3, 6 & 9 to penetrate deep into the skin, helping to restructure and regenerate damaged cells.

African Bush & Desert Plants: Utilizing a unique botanical maceration process that takes weeks, we harness the potency of African indigenous plants: Resurrection, HoneyBush, Bulbinella and Rooibos which help soothe inflamed, dry, irritated skin, relieving itchiness. These botanicals are rich in many antihistamines and are renowned for their reparative benefits, improving and correcting the appearance of even the most irritable, inflamed, sunburned and damaged skin.
Claims: Over a period of 2 months, the wrinkle depth decreases by 10.4%, and the wrinkle volume decreases by 12% when compared to the original skin condition. In just 24 hours builds 20% more collagen (Tests performed on active ingredient).

Overall Assessment: This is a truly extraordinary green beauty box, and the ability to purchase this $250.00 eco-luxe beauty oil for 1/5 of its retail price is a staggering value. I suggest ordering yours before they sell out, as they will! This will be the best $49.95 that you spend this year!
This is, unquestionably, the anti-aging luxury oil that has set the bar so high that it will be a long long time before anything comes close to it. It is a peerless luxury oil that boasts supreme efficacy, is a delight to the senses, and it leaves skin luminous and nourished. Furthermore, it effectively heals inflamed and traumatized skin, increases skin cell turnover, bolsters collagen production, softens the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and leaves skin with a pronounced clarity and a youthful glow. Simply put, it does far more than simply leave skin soft, smooth, supple, hydrated and nourished. This visionary formula earns an A+++!
