Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside the April Boxwalla Green Beauty Box
Everything that we received in our April “FACEts of Spring” themed box. What are the facets you ask? Color, Renewal, Hydration, Scent and Glow
So what is all this stuff?
Our box insert that tells us what was included and why
Axiology Lipstick is an all natural, organic, and vegan line of lipsticks that contain super butters like Avocado and Mango. Making this a nourishing lipstick that also adds gorgeous color to the lips!
We actually got to choose the color we received which is a nice change from most other beauty boxes.
There were four colors to choose from; Noble, Elusive, Attitude, and Reflection. We chose Reflection which was the boldest shade in a deep purple color.
The tube is amazing – it is controlled by a push button locking mechanism and it comes in this gorgeous gold!
Reflection is sheer and oh so beautiful! So glad that we chose this color!
Good to know: Axiology seeks to raise the awareness of how destructive the use of Palm Oil is… and they do not use Palm Oil in their products. This video helps paint a much better picture and if you watched the unboxing we talked about it – here it is!
The Garden of Wisdom line is a skincare line for the skincare nerds (like us)! Their site is a wealth of knowledge including a forum boasting over 5000 members and a hefty selection of raw as well as finished ingredients and products. This mask serves as part of our renewal and hydration. The fresh pineapple exfoliates with Bromelain Enzymes. The burgundy wine is an antioxidant and also serves as an exfoliator.
This smells yummy! It has a jelly like consistency and when we apply it to our face it starts to dry pretty quickly. You simply leave it on for about 15 minutes and then wash off with warm water. This left our skin feeling softer and more glowing! Definitely a must try for the people out there that love to mask!
This fabulous serum serves as our scent & glow. The lavender base is formulated for sensitive skin yet the smell is fabulous and perfect for spring!
So many wonderful oils in this – including our personal favorite Argan Oil. Because this is designed for normal to dry skin we were informed on our insert that mixing a drop of this with the NEXT product would create a great serum for the folks out there that tend to err on the oilier side
After using this, we are in love. Definitely our favorite item in this box (and let me tell you we were excited about the Axiology lipstick!) Our skin soaked every bit of this up and shot it back out in the form of dewy, glowy, gorgeous complexion!
This Hyaluronic Acid Serum is a great way to reduce inflammation and protect skin from oxidative damage
We weren’t sure in the unboxing what Blue Mallow was, it is a blue flower blossom. This serum also contains L-Carsonine. Serums like this are great for combating age related issues and also stress. You can use this before the Soothe Serum or as we said above if you have oily skin mix a drop of Sooth Serum with this Hyaluronic Acid
This is a sneak peek at one of GoW‘s new products! This lip balm is an excellent pre-treatment before lipstick. With fantastic ingredients including Manuka Honey we were excited to try this!
The texture of this is unlike anything we’ve ever tried. It’s a bit drier when applying but moistens lips and makes them soft and velvety smooth. We really like this!
So in summary
We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Boxwalla Green Beauty Box is a spot on beauty box. We feel like the superior products teemed with the more obscure independent artisans make this an all star box! The presentation is excellent. Everything is expertly wrapped and packaged and everything is biodegradable (which we give all the high fives). Quality, do we have to even say anything? The Axiology alone is AMAZING! And everything else just follows suit! Curation is stunning. The collection of items and vendors is great. Personally, we love that we don’t feel overwhelmed with many different companies considering the Garden of Wisdom products and site is an afternoon of browsing and reading. We also really like that this month’s box seems to hone in on skincare (which we just can’t get enough of). So basically what we’re saying is we heart this box… all the hearts for you Boxwalla Green Beauty, all the hearts for you!
As far as box economy the Boxwalla Green Beauty Box costs $49.95 and for that we received $96.69 in products. And while we aren’t mathematicians we’re pretty sure that is almost DOUBLE the cost! So amazing.. there’s no way you can say no!
