As a total subscription box junkie I can tell you Boxwalla is pretty special. The second box I’ve had the pleasure of trying was their December Collection aptly named 'Let it Glow!’ as it was full of unique skincare and a cult makeup product all designed to get and keep your skin glowing for the holidays. Let’s dive right in….
My current obsession, Wabisabi Botanical’s BUDHI Sacha Inchi Eye Nectar, a orange oil that corrects a host of eye issues from bags, dark circles to fine line & wrinkles with potent natural and organic ingredients like Guava and Prickly Pear Seed Oils, Coffee Fruit, Seabuckthorn berries, and Evening Primrose blossoms all in a base offree-radical neutralizing Organic Peruvian Sacha Inchi oil. BUDHI, a Buddhist term meaning, ‘awaken’ speaks to what this product does; restoring life and nourishing the delicate eye area. Founder Elysse has luminous, lit-from-within skin and a powerful message about self acceptance and love that I think every women can relate to. The products are luxurious, 100% natural, cruelty free with sustainable and beautifully designed packaging.The exotic ingredient stories, evocative names and all-natural ethos means my "to try" list from this brand very long!
Next up, a multi-use product from a brand I haven't tried before - Lisa Hanson’s NEW Global Face Trio! Inspired by the former makeup artists trip to Southeast Asiaand part of her global beauty collection, a simple, effective skincare regimen that celebrates unique, personal beauty not quick fixes the global face trio is a powder cleanser + exfoliator + mask. When used as a cleanser it draws out impurities and deeply cleanses, mixed with a very small amount of water it's an effective yet gentle exfoliator and my favorite use is as a detoxifying and brightening mask because the texture is so creamy and luxurious it’s treat to use and leaves skin soft and bright. The ingredient list is just as impressive as the results with Thanaka, a bark sourced in Myanmar where it used by Burmese women to tighten pores, rice bran, anti-oxidant rich ginseng, and antibacterial lemongrass! I highly recommend it!
Lastly, one of my all time favorite beauty products RMS Beauty’s Living Luminizer! For me this was my gateway into the world of natural makeup (with a heavy emphasis on RMS to this day!) and it’s still my go-to brightening product.
Shown in a few of these photos is the gorgeous new coffee table book by photographer Mariano Vivanco: Portraits Nudes Flowers. I love all the celebrity portraits and nudes but his flowers, some never before published are absolutely captivating!
