I like the product info cards that Pearlesque provides, they give a brief snapshot into the featured brand, which for July is Berlin Skin:
intended to complement the minimalist’s lifestyle, our products prove that achieving beautiful, smooth skin doesn’t have to be difficult. in a world where we’re constantly bombarded by loud messaging that begs us to consume more and more, we’ve chosen a different path: one that encourages a simple, more content sense of well-being. we believe that a skin care routine should be a relaxing, uncomplicated experience that nurtures the natural environment of our skin.
The back of the introductory card listed each product, its retail value, and how to use each item. I like that Pearlesque also includes their own #pearltip for the products.
Presentation is extremely minimal with this box. The outside of the box is plain and the inside has wadded up paper to keep the items from shifting.
Everything in my July 2019 Pearlesque Box! The line is small, only 6 items in the collection, and each item is meant to be used however you wish so you can combine items and use them on most skin types.
Berlin Skin Cocoa Eye Butter (MSRP $52 for 1 ounce, now $31) Have you ever received such a huge vat of eye cream? No? That’s because you can also use it as a facial moisturizer!
NOTE: The jar available on the website was originally $52 for one ounce, and we received the yet-to-be-released 1.7 ounce jar, which will cost $68.
Ingredients are on the box and include lots of plant-based ingredients along with beeswax and aloe.
The product line prides itslef on being “clean.modern.minimal.” which is helpful for those who appreciate a pared-down beauty routine.
You can dot the rich cream around your eyes or apply to face for an extra dose of moisture.
It is rich but not overly so, I didn’t feel like my eyes were oily or anything. The scent reminded me of cocoa butter with a hint of chocolate! A word about the jars: they are heavy duty Miron glass which means they are opaque and supposedly light will have a hard time penetrating the product which will preserve it for longer, although air is also a factor so to be safe use this stuff up within 12 months.
Berlin Skin Sandalwood Cream ($64 MSRP, now $39) Pearlesque sends a lot of serums and facial oils but this month they sent a face cream!
Ingredients include cica (aka Centella asiatica aka gotu kola), jojoba, propolis, and lots of plant essential oils and extracts.
I think it is nice to massage this into skin before bed at night, like a mini facial.
At first sniff this smells like lemon balm and geranium but as I rubbed it in I came to the realization that this smells just like Ivory soap! Luckily the scent fades quickly and I was happy with how this treated my face.
I am always excited when a new-to-me brand shows up in my monthly Pearlesque Box! I was happy with the results I experienced with the products this month and had fun trying them out. The value was supposed to be $132 but Berlin Skin says they are having a warehouse sale and that is why the prices are lower right now. Even with the sale prices this box has a value of $91.70!
NOTE: August’s box will feature products from Rosemira Organics!
