So excited to share Art of Organics October Box with you guys as an ambassador! I’ve sampled the boxes before but never had the privilege of being an ambassador. This box is changing the green beauty scene and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part! This month there are two outstanding products taking center stage. The Vitamin C Serum by Ursa Major and Afar Lush Balance Toning Mist. Before I dive into these two gems, let me fill you in on what the Art of Organics box is all about.
Their belief is really simple-You shouldn’t have to sacrifice your health for beauty. I couldn’t agree more! Their goal is to bring people the cleanest, best, and most luxurious products. Claire the founder, has always been a beauty junkie and on the quest to purge her own makeup bag, she realized she wanted to share her journey with others and raise awareness. I noticed instantly after opening the box, the attention to detail. They name their boxes each month as well as follow a theme. The card inside describes the products in the box so well and gave directions for application. The box is $38, with a value of $70+ and features each month 2-4 full size products. They have high standards for their product selection, such as being cruelty free, organic and non-toxic. They have more specifics on the ingredients they don’t use here on their website.
Ok, shall we proceed to the review?
Ursa Major Vitamin C Serum-
I was fortunate it enough to have the pleasure of sampling Ursa Major’s Vitamin C Serum this last summer when it came out. It truly is a special product. It contains a water-soluble form of vitamin C that guards against free radical damage, as well as edelweiss, a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect the skin. It doesn’t stop there, the formula also contains properties like rose hip, aloe and aspen that help to fade lines and calm inflammation. I love the smell of citrus- it instantly wakes you up!
I applied 1 pump onto my skin after toning. I would make sure my skin was pretty dry when applying. Then I would follow with my favorite oil. I found I needed a bit more hydration, especially now that the season has changed. I noticed improved skin texture, and an overall brightness. Such a great overall serum packed with vitamins to feed the skin and soothe it.
Akar Lush Balance Toning Mist-
This organic toning mist is all around dreamy! It’s so much more than a toning mist in my opinion. It feels heavier than just a simple mist and I love that feeling. The formula is made from plant stem cells that create cells to be repaired and rejuvenated. After applying my skin feels hydrated and balanced. The rose and neroli in it even help to minimize pores too! I love applying this right before my serum or oil at night and right before my moisturizer in the morning. The smell is so lovely as well. With notes of neroli and rose that both soothe and uplift you. They even suggested misting over makeup to set it and it worked beautifully. I love a good pick me up spritz in the afternoon as well!
That concludes my review of the October Art of Organics box. The value and quality of this box is amazing! This month alone was a $94 value! You pay $39 each month and get access to some stellar products! You can sign up for 3 months, 6 months and 12 months! At 6 and 12 months you start saving. Also, each month a theme is chosen around the box. This month the theme was all about PROTECT. Really protecting your skin from free radical damage, and yet at the same time brightening it!
