BOXWALLA + MODERN ORGANIC SACRED SKINCARE
The theme for the June Boxwalla Beauty Box is MOSSAIC and features two full size products from MOSS (Modern Organic Sacred Skincare). Relatively new to the brand I was so excited when I found out The Boxwalla was featuring MOSS. I have always wanted to try the MOSS products and I’ve been really drawn to the formulations of the products. The products showcased are the Beurre Céleste Cleansing Balm and the Illumina Vitamin C Treatment Serum. Founder and formulator Celestyna Higgins comes from an interesting background in astrophysics, fashion and yoga. Her diversity and worldly knowledge have allowed her to create some of the most pure, powerful and active skincare that helps treat a mosaic of skin issues and types especially adult acne as well as mature and sensitive skin types. A natural skincare brand that is effective and performs.
MOSS’s mission is to deliver truly effective, luxurious skincare that doesn’t contain “fairy dust,” toxins or fillers of any kind. A synergy of natural ingredients mixed with skincare actives like ceramides, peptides that are effective and non-toxic. After my first cleanse using the Beurre Céleste Cleansing Balm, I was immediately impressed and in awe of the results. I’m not usually drawn to cleansing balms but this exceeded all my expectations and actually “wowed” me! This honey infused rinsable cleansing balm is like no other and does not require you to follow with a washcloth. It is specially formulated with raw neem honey, macadamia nut oil, sunflower seed oil, kokum butter, lemon myrtle, seabuckthorn pulp extract and without the use of any preservatives. The ingredients have been carefully selected to allow the cleanser to permeate and aid in the reconstruction of the skin’s barrier. Never stripping your skin or leaving any residue behind. It also doubles as a nourishing mask and gives skin a brightening glow. I love using this in the evening as a cleanser and as a mask in the mornings, a truly impressive and unique cleansing balm.
The Illumina Decongesting Radiance Concentrate is another impressive product. As someone who has quite congested skin and is prone to breakouts this multitasking serum is absolute perfection for my skin. It’s a gentle (retinol free) yet high performing serum that has a high concentration of Vitamin C (4 x the usual amount of Vitamin C) derived from Sodium Ascorbic Phosphate – which means it’s a stable form of Vitamin C and will not oxidise. Formulated with pumpkin enzyme, moth bean (a natural retinol alternative), plant ceramides, Vitamin C and a selection of other beautiful botanical extracts that allow skin to be gently exfoliated, promoting collagen as well as providing skin with anti inflammatory and antibacterial relief. The benefits don’t stop there, it also aids in the soothing and purification of the skin, making it a great treatment for skin that is inflamed (perfect for breakouts and acne).
I’m excited to add this to my evening routine and see the benefits. I am so impressed with how Celestyna has created such an innovative and natural product that delivers results. It is recommended that you start using the serum once a day to once a week. Then proceed to using it every two to three days for glow skin. The date for the this box has been extended to June 5th, a great Beauty box with some seriously impressive products! Head to the Boxwalla site to grab your box!
