This month the Art of Organics September Box: Embrace is here! The theme Embrace is quite appropriate for the changing of seasons. As much as I love summer weather I do love fall/autumn and I’m ready to embrace it with open arms! This month we are seeing two different brands in the box. One is Odacite with it’s Aventurine Kiss Lip Serum and the other is Wabi Sabi with their Age Gracefully Targeted Treatment Serum. I had previously tried the Odacite’s Aventurine Kiss Lip Serum and was excited to see it in the box. I’m somewhat familiar with Wabi Sabi- trying one of their products in the past.
If you aren’t familiar with Art of Organics and this green beauty box, then keep reading as I explain why this box is one to get a hold of. 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, on to the September review…
I was pleasantly surprised by this lovely serum! Upon first use I noticed how rich of an oil it is. I love how it felt thicker but yet didn’t leave a greasy hue on my skin. I also noticed how their wasn’t much scent- it really smelled natural- haha, if that makes sense. When I looked further into the serum I read how it actually contains no essential oils or added fragrance. Something I was pretty excited about! Many people are so sensitive they can hardly tolerate even natural essential oils. This is a great product for them- very pure and unadulterated. It contains 3 powerful ingredients- organic cacay oil, organic acai fruit oil and organic green coffee oil. The formal is meant to help fight fine lines and wrinkles, as well as fight free radicals and provide fresh oxygen to the skin.
What I found very cool about the serum is that it can be used in multiple ways! You can use it as an eye serum around the eye area. As a finishing oil, like you would normally use an oil/serum at the end of your skincare routine, or add it in your favorite mask or add some to your favorite moisturizer. So many uses! I loved using it as an eye serum and as a finishing oil. It made my skin feel so supple and plump. Waking up from applying it at night I noticed my skin felt so lovely and redness was minimized. Overall, I was super impressed with the Serum’s performance! I found myself wanting to use it more and more.
This has been a staple in my routine since the beginning of summer! I just can’t get enough of it. I use it as the final step in my night time skincare routine. I love that my lips have a serum now too and not just my face! I had never used anything on my lips except a lip balm but then this genius product came along and I just can’t stop. It’s packed full of all the good stuff from CoQ10, vitamin C, moringa, and pomegranate. Helps with fine lines, and plumpness-(can I get an amen?!) It has a slight tingle when you apply it too. My lips feel smooth, and supple the next morning. I apply this first and then I add my lip balm after. I’ve noticed adding a little hydration after takes it over the top for the ultimate lip treatment!
This box is another great one from Art of Organics. Love being introduced to quality products but for a fraction of the cost! I would hop on this month’s box! Snag it here!
Still not sure what Art of Organics is? Well each month not only do you get quality products from Art of Organics but for a steal. You pay $39 each month and get access to some stellar green beauty.
