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!

Beauty subscription boxes are all the rage at the moment,  they are a great way to try new brands and products. Not all boxes are the same, why? Well some are just full of fillers and crappy samples you just don’t need!

Boxwalla is not your average subscription box, you won’t get fillers or samples you’re never going to use. Boxwalla is a carefully curated, well thought out and offers you a variety of products you are definitely going to LOVE! It starts with their box, it is made from cotton handmade paper. Making it a tree free box, it’s also made by a small family owned company in India who have been making tree free paper for generations. The Boxwalla box is designed to be reused and is 100% recyclable.

They have a few boxes: there is the film box, food box, book box and the the beauty box. The BEAUTY BOX, has a great variety of niche and effective green beauty brands. This month the Boxwalla beauty box unveiled three gorgeous products from Earthwise Beauty.

One of the many great things BOXWALLA does, is introducing you to some really amazing brands that are passionate about crafting their creations. Meet Earthwise Beauty, organic skincare products that are healing, unrefined, unique and potent: Nap in the meadow, Farizad’s veil and the Ruby facial oil.

I tried and recommend following beautiful ritual to protect, heal and nourish your skin:

Firstly start with the Nap in the meadow, an aloe base face serum. It’s refreshing herbaceous scent is simply calming. It is lovingly made with the purest essences and essential oils that help hydrate and heal skin. Once applied you can instantly see it clears your complexion. Then it can be layered perfectly with the Ruby facial oil.  The scent of this oil is absolutely divine –  think tropical guava and fresh florals. The gorgeous aroma is highly addictive – you will want to apply this everyday! Optionally this face oil can be effortlessly mixed with Farizad’s veil, a zinc oxide powder, to create your own natural, non-toxic and non-nano particle sunscreen (30 SPF). All three products were designed to complement each other. The serum and oil are suited for all skin types – in particular for oily skin, like mine. They are absorbed with ease and help regenerate and rejuvenate your skin.

Thank you BOXWALLA for introducing me to these lovely skin treats from Earthwisebeauty.
