The Boxwalla June Beauty Box is themed: Three Ways to Savor Summer (With a Little Help From My Friends), and this extraordinary box ships in June. There are three brands in this Box and three full sized products. Retail Value: $185.00!
Nini Organics Natural Detox Foam ($52.00 value): This delectable detox foam is an ultra-finely milled powder cleanser, with a luscious minty aroma, that transforms into a creamy dreamy foamy mousse with a few drops of water. While you could certainly mix it in a bowl, I prefer to cup my hand and mix it with my finger, and then apply it directly to me face. Boxwalla posits that it can be used as a first cleanse if you aren't wearing makeup and a second cleanse if you are.

The coconut-based foaming agent gives this cleanser its creamy texture and the green clay deeply cleans the skin. Ingredients such as white willow bark gently exfoliates and helps fight acne without stripping the skin. This magical powder is filled with nourishing and antioxidant-rich ingredients, such as neem, spirulina, broccoli and baobab extracts, camu camu and goji that leave skin soft, smooth, supple and luminous.

According to Nini Organics,

Natura Detox Foam is a unique water-free foaming cleanser supercharged with detoxifying dried vegetables and super antioxidants. A super gentle foaming agent derived from Coconuts helps create a super effective foaming cleanser. Broccoli powder rich in vitamin C & A helps to mop up all the daily pollutants and free radical damage whilst Organic Baobab powder helps promote skin’s collagen formation, boosting skin’s natural elasticity and smoothness. White Willow Bark contains salicylic acid which gently exfoliates your skin helping to fight acne / hormonal breakouts leaving your skin feeling fresh and looking radiant. Organic Goji Berry powder is rich in antioxidants helping to further reduce environmental damage.
Directions: Use 2/3 times a week as a recharging cleanser designed to give your skin a full detoxifying cleanse. Add a small amount to the palm of your hand, slowly add droplets of fresh water to create a supercharged foam ready to deeply & effectively cleanse your skin. Apply in circular motions onto dry skin adding more water to activate more foam, massage in for around 30 seconds before washing off with cold water for a more refreshing feel.

NINI Tip: Mix with our Coffee & Cacao Face Scrub for a more exfoliating cleanser or use as a second cleanse to our Halo Cleansing Elixir. Can also be used as a second cleanse to any existing routine. 

Please Note: The subscriber bottles will come in the newly designed outer boxes that are under production.

Pai Skincare Sea Aster & Wild Oat Instant Calm Redness Serum ($78.00 value): This serum has the texture of a lovely light and emollient water-based lotion, and it is formulated to calm and soothe skin and to reduce redness and irritation. Furthermore, it nourishes and hydrates, pampers sensitive skin without any irritation and it leaves it comfortable, soft, supple and luminous. It has a very very light herbal aroma, but it is so faint that it isn't detectable on the skin.

According to Pai,

Our Instant Calm Redness Serum is expertly formulated restore calm and confidence to reactive complexions. This lightweight and hydrating serum is enriched with Sea Aster, a flowering plant that actively calms troubled skin and reduces visible redness and blotchiness. Combined with Wild Oat, rich source of Oleic and Linoleic fatty acids, it helps to comfort areas of dryness and soothe sensitivity. To reduce flare-ups caused by dehydration and dryness, this ultra gentle formula is carefully balanced with filtered water.

This serum is free from ingredients thought to dry or irritate redness, Eczema and Rosacea-prone skin, including: Alcohol (denat.), Benzoyl Peroxide, Synthetic Fragrance, Methylisothiazolinone (MI), Phenoxyethanol and Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate.

As well as instantly calming flushed skin, Sea Aster also strengthens surface blood vessels to improve and prevent redness over time.
Directions: Massage 1 pump into clean skin at night.

Boxwalla asserts: I use this after a toner/hydrating mist and under an oil and cream/balm, as you would a hydrating water based serum. It also layers beautifully under Monastery Aloe. It is very versatile - If you experience redness, in addition to using it as a serum, you can also dab on red areas after your skincare routine. It is also useful to layer under more active serum if you want a bit of a buffer while using active serums.

African Botanics Marula Botanical Hand Cream ($55.00 value): The ultra-emollient luxury oil-infused cream boasts a refreshingly creamy lightweight texture that sinks into the skin immediately and doesn't leave hands in the least bit greasy. If you adhere to the belief that one needs to use thick and greasy hand creams in order to stave-off and heal dry and chapped hands, then you will be astonished by the efficacy of this ingenious hand cream.  In fact, I think that it is more accurate to classify Marula Botanical Hand Cream as a cutting-edge antioxidant-rich anti-aging serum/cream hybrid that protects, nourishes, hydrates, soothes, brightens and repairs the skin with great efficacy.

Not only are my hands soft, supple and ultra moisturized, but they are left with the type of pronounced luminosity that I have only ever experienced in luxurious serums and beauty oils for the face. The delectable warm and earthy scent heightens the sensory experience of using this luxe hand cream, but it does fade soon upon application, and therefore won't pose a problem for those among you who prefer scent-free products.

It is noteworthy that the formula is very concentrated, and the effects are very long-lasting– therefore a single tube goes a very very long way.  If you treat yourself to one new body product this season, then African Botanics Marula Botanical Hand Cream should be at the top of your list. I kid you not, this hand cream is that extraordinary.

According to African Botanics,

Formulated to regenerate, repair, deeply hydrate, soothe, even skin tone, brighten and restore comfort. Reduces dark spots and lightens with Swiss Garden Cress. Protects and fights aging with Alpine Rose plant stem cells, plant peptides and Hyaluronic Acid while promoting healing.

Packed with a bespoke blend of wild-harvested African oils, exotic butters and moisturizing botanicals that naturally soothe, soften and deeply hydrate while combating dryness and the appearance of age spots. Sinks deep into the skin and delivers vitamin rich restorative hydration providing an uplifting and calming aromatic experience with Wild Rosemary Leaf and Cape Rose Geranium. Quick-absorbing treatment leaves hands soft, soothed and well protected.

A unique combination of antioxidant and omega-rich Marula, Baobab and Kigelia oils calm, hydrate and increase skin elasticity. Mafura, Mango and Shea butters nourish, soothe and help reduce inflammation. Green Rooibos Tea and Swiss Garden Cress, rich in phytonutrients help reduce age spots, pigmentation and even out skin tone. Hyaluronic acid, Alpine Rose Plant Stem Cells and plant peptides visibly smoothe, strengthen and enhance the lipid barrier function to protect and maintain moisture.
