It’s that time! The natural beauty box roundup for May is here! Every month I get a little giddy peaking into the boxes as I get them in the mail wondering what could be inside. This month is no different! Another month brings new brands in clean beauty that I haven’t tried. I love when the seasons start to change too because then you start to see different products for the seasons. The sun is starting to shine everywhere and it’s feeling like summer is getting close!
*This month we are seeing boxes from Beauty Heroes and The Detox Market. I also share about Boxwalla and The Clean Beauty Box but they are bi-monthly boxes, so I only receive them every other month.
If you want to check out past reviews on those boxes, check them out below:
On to the reviews!
Up first this month is Beauty Heroes, next will be The Detox Box which you can subscribe to here.
This is my first time seeing and experiencing Bathing Culture as a brand. It was founded by two city dwellers who loved going outdoors to explore and get adrenaline highs. Tim Hollinger and Spencer Arnold wanted to create a business that would both be clean and environmentally friendly. They did just that! As they delved into the beauty industry- specifically body wash, they were struck with how toxic it actually was. They realized they had their work cut out for them and created a gender neutral, regional organic, Rainforest Alliance, personal care products that truly performed. Oh and did I mention the formulas are housed in biodegradable and reusable bottles? They really go to the extra milel to create clean products that are both sustainable and truly clean. They have gone so far as even opening up 50 refill locations and planted a tree for every 5 gallons sold- talk about next level!
Mind and Body Wash- This month’s heroic product is not just any body wash. It has organic ingredients that not only cleanse your skin but add hydration with shea butter. The scent is a blend of balsam, vetiver, ylang ylang, ho wood, and frankincense. It comes housed in a glass bottle and pump. (I did want to note on the pump due to the COVID pandemic, the founders have had manufacturing issues supplying the pump. They have worked tirelessly to try and source more, however, it has been hard to find replacements. Boxes will be delayed as a result, unless you don’t mind not having a pump and just having a screw top).
Outer Being Face & Body Oil- Inspired by their outdoor adventures, the founders created this face and body oil. A perfect oil to use all over your body. Filled with raspberry seed oil, sea buckthorn, and marula seed oil to name a few, this oil truly hydrates the skin. This helps to continue your bathing ritual after you use the Mind and Body Wash. It helps to lock in the moisture and keep your skin feeling soft and supple. A skin treat for sure!
Golden Hour Hydrosol- This hydrosol is filled with Bulgarian Rose Oil, Moroccan Rose Oil, Turkish Rose Oil and hand harvested Moroccan Neroli Flower Oil. It will take you back to the scent of flowers and the memories they hold. This is perfect for post sun skin, in the morning to awaken your senses, and as an all over body mist. It has such an uplifting scent that isn’t over powering.
The Detox box for May is all about One Love Organics. We are seeing their popular Enzyme Cleansing Oil, Vitamin C Facial Serum, and their Botanical A Facial Cleanser. This brand has been around since the beginning of clean beauty! They know skincare.
Botanical B Enzyme Cleansing Oil- This cleanser is full of vitamin B complex. I love how it’s an oil but then when you add water it slightly emulsifies and the formula turns into a milky consistency. It not only removes my makeup, but everything else too. My skin is left feeling smooth and hydrated, not stripped at all. It smells like a tropical paradise with hints of coconut.
Vitamin C Facial Serum- This facial serum it packed with vitamin C and also includes rosehip, baobab, and jojoba oil that transforms dull/lackluster skin into radiant/glowing skin. I apply it to clean skin that’s still slightly damp. You can use it in the morning or at night. I love how rich the oil feels on my skin. It really feels so nourishing.
Botanical A Facial Cleanser- This facial cleanser contains AHAs, BHAs and wintergreen extract. It lathers up and helps to cleanse your skin even more. I start with the Botanical B Enzyme Cleansing Oil and then I follow with this. It really is the perfect cleanser to really achieve that deep clean feeling. My skin feels so clean!
You can get all of this- $156 value for $55! Such a good deal. I would hop on it now before it sells out! Get the box here.
