The Boxwalla Beauty Box contains non-toxic and cruelty-free products sourced from artisans in the US. Boxwalla is a bi-monthly subscription service that offers four themes – natural beauty, artisanal food, international film, or books! In Boxwalla you’ll be able to discover great artisans and artists from across the globe. After your first box you can switch themes, but of course you can subscribe to more than one box as well!
The packaging for this box is absolutely gorgeous. The box itself is sort of like a luxe cotton rag paper covered box handcrafted by artisans in Rajasthan, India (none of whom are children). The outside indicates which box you received.
The information card is a letter from “The Drunken Boxwallas” detailing each of the products. The theme for this box is Cleopatra.
When we think of Cleopatra’s beauty ritual- we think of pampering ingredients like rose water and honey and goatsmilk : ingredients that are nourishing and indulgent. To this roster of decadence we add a few more of our favorite skin softening ingredients : Shea butter, cacoa butter, mango butter, buriti oil, sea buckthorn oil, aloe, tamanu oil. A touch of cocoa essence, some amber. Sensual tuberose wax, orange flower absolute.
What we’ve come up with is a box filled with some of our favorite luxuries for our skin. A box to channel your inner Cleopatra and pamper your skin and body including an indispensable piece of makeup that will nourish your skin while adding a natural flush of color.
And the items themselves are sealed up with a cute sticker.
And another cute sticker!
Everything in the February Boxwalla Beauty Box!
Lalun Naturals Winter Rose Toner ($5.50) This is called a toner but it’s really more of a skin hydrator, made with aloe, honey, and scented with rose petals. It’s made for winter (no alcohol in this formula!) and I just love the idea of a line of skincare that’s designed for the seasons. The rose scent is quite strong.
Lalun Naturals Moon Butter ($18?) Despite being a whipped butter this is quite firm in the jar, and you’ll likely need the included spatula. The letter suggested using on the face. While I thought that a bit odd, I tried it out anyways. It has a beautiful chocolate scent due to the cocoa butter and is also scented with night blooming flowers and infused with healing oils like calendula. I loved it! I thought the name was great too. Moon flowers for night time!
All subscribers received this shade, which is a pretty coral. It’s a simple cream lip/cheek tint. FYI rms beauty is very upfront with when their formulations might not contain what’s expected and this one includes a synthetic pigment (it says so on the back of the box).
Although rms beauty is really devoted to applying all your makeup with your fingers (which does get gross) they included a vegan brush that does the job just like your fingers and deposits product without picking it back up. I’m super excited to have a blush brush formulated for use with cream blushes and will use this all the time – it did a great job!).
Cocoapink Goatmilk and Honey Lotion in Signature White ($11.99) A nice big bottle of thin yet soothing lotion. Subscribers received one of two scents – Signature White or Orange+Amber. The latter scent was custom blended for Boxwalla, and I thought it odd that all boxes didn’t include that scent. Signature white is scented with shea blossoms, rice flower, vanilla cream, and heliotrope and a nice light fragrance that fits the theme (although I totally want to try all their dessert sounding flavors – dessert is my flavorite).
This was an amazing luxury beauty box once again. I’m totally a fan – and with about $105.5 in value, Boxwalla is doing an awesome job packing it in to this subscription. Natural beauty boxes tend to have lower values, so I’m impressed.
