I received a card with background info on the featured brand for February, Delia Organics:
Delia Organics Skincare is all about plant based ingredients with an objective. With the right ingredients, handpicked, to give your skin the nourishment and antioxidants, it deserves. We believe in self-love and care, which helped us create Delia Organics into the brand it is today.
The back of the card listed each product, its retail value, and how to use each item. Check out the #pearltip for additional info.
Everything in my February 2020 Pearlesque Box!
Delia Organics Dew Drops Serum ($39.99) The goal of this serum (which seems like a face oil to me) is to provide a glowy skin tone and a hydrated, even complexion.
Ingredients include apricot, jojoba, grapeseed, and avocado oils plus essential oils. Please be careful when using this during the day, since citrus oils can cause a sunburn. I would use this at night and of course don’t forget to wear sunscreen during the day. One squirt from the applicator provided a lot of this silky moisturizing oil and it has a light citrus scent.
Delia Organics Restore Treatment ($32.99) Facial oil #2 is supposed to be absorbed quickly by the skin and feel lightweight. According to Delia Organics, it can also be used as a makeup remover and should be wiped off right away when using it for that purpose.
Apply water first and then a drop or two of this oil, but be careful when pouring out of the bottle because there isn’t a dropper.
Grapeseed, avocado, macadamia, jojoba, tamanu, and noni are the oils in this container and I didn’t detect any scent at all.
Delia Organics Antiox Booster ($13.99) I like gentle exfoliators such as this, it’s about all my sensitive skin can handle!
It’s made of just cranberry fruit powder and I added a teaspoon or so to my usual morning cleanser. It was gentle on my skin and gave just the right amount of scrubbiness. I didn’t really detect much scent and the product rinsed off easily. I rinsed it off in my shower so I wouldn’t get any red fruit stains on my washcloth.
Delia Organics Body Tonic Oil Skin Remedy Blend ($9.99) Yet another oil, but this one is for the body. (PS, the other two oils can be used on the body too if you prefer.)
You know the drill: apply to damp skin when you get out of the tub or shower to lock in moisture.
The base is sunflower, olive, and coconut oils plus a few more plant oils and essential oils. I think the scent is uplifting thanks to the tea tree oil but it isn’t overpowering. My skin liked this and absorbed it pretty quickly.
Delia Organics Lip Nectar ($19.99) I find this product pops up in natural subscription boxes frequently.
It has pumpkin seed and grapeseed oils and a few essential oils (there’s those citrus oils again).
The oils are supposed to moisturize without feeling waxy but I think plant waxes are what help keep the oils from coming off as soon as you apply. This oil doesn’t stay on lips long at all. I prefer to use this as a base before applying a lip scrub, and you could put this on and then dip your finger in some granulated sugar and voila, an exfoilating treatment!
Delia Organics Skin Detox Rehab Mask ($17.99) Clay masks can be a good way to draw impurities from pores.
Ingredients include two types of clay along with grapeseed oil and papaya extract.
Pour some of the powder into a little dish and add water or plant hydrosol to make a paste. Apply to skin, let dry for about 15 minutes, then rinse off. If you have dry skin then you can try using something like yogurt instead of water or rinse off before the mask fully dries.
Delia Organics Lemon Drop Hydrating Balm ($15.99) Our fourth “oily” product (and third one for the face) is in the form of a solid balm that needs to be warmed up before applying to the skin.
Mango and shea butters plus jojoba oil and essential oils are the smoothers found in this tin.
I dug a bit out with my nail and it melted quickly into my skin. It has a light lemon scent that I liked. It is supposed to brighten and hydrate the face while providing a youthful glow. I think this would work well as a balm for other parts of the body too, like cuticles, elbows, and heels.
If you like facial oils and balms then I think the February Pearlesque Box is the one for you! Out of the 7 products sent, 5 were moisturizing products, three of them for the face, one for lips, and one for the body. The mask and scrub are also meant to be used on the face. The products were all very natural, no weird ingredients at all. I noticed that some of the products were in plastic containers and not glass bottles like on the Delia Organics website. I think this is to save money on shipping costs but they also make the products seem less ritzy – a $39.99 facial oil should be in a glass bottle. Of course plastic is travel friendly and easier to pack for a weekend away. The retail value is around $150.93 (and that may be CAD, so USD would be around $112.50). You can pick up a set of 5 of these items (everything except the lip oil and lemon balm and with everything packed in plastic containers) for only $25.99 on the Delia Organics website.
