Ok, it’s time for the monthly natural beauty box November roundup! I finally took the cue from my green beauty blogger bestie- Lisa from This Organic Girl and I’m creating a round up! I’ve been doing individual posts but many of you seemed excited when I polled you about the green beauty box roundup that I thought I would give it a try and see how it goes. So cheers to one post with lots of juicy green beauty boxes!
Check out Beauty Heroes November Discovery- Natural Inlight Skincare! (Photo Cred. Beauty Heroes)
This month we are seeing Inlight in the box. This is a luxe brand made in the UK. The mastermind behind this skincare line is Dr. Mariano Spiezia. His creations come to life through plant alchemy. He uses the brilliance of plants to create skincare products that perform. He has one formula that he’s particularly known for and it’s infused in all of his formulas. This formula is called the Bio-lipophilic Matrix®. This blend of beneficial plant-based phytonutrient oils imitate the sebum’s texture while guarding and restoring the skin. Sounds like something I want in my skincare products!
The heroic product for the month is the Line Softener Intensive. The name just as it suggests helps to soften lines and bring a youthfulness to the skin. It’s filled with so many plant oils, and smells divine! Oils such as macademia, argan, jojoba and many more. Your skin literally is getting nourished with the plants and yet you’re not left with a greasy feel. It comes in a dark glass jar and the cutest wooden spoon to scoop the product out with. I apply it at night and wake up to refreshed skin!
The sidekick is the Super Food Mask. Another noteworthy product from Inlight. It’s filled with antioxidants that help promote cell turnover and collagen production. It also replenishes the skin’s moisture balance and protects the skin from environmental factors through spirulina, chlorophyll, barley leaf and rose hip seed oil. It’s a winning combination! Leave it on for 10 minutes and watch your skin transform!

This month we are seeing two products from the British line AMLY Botanicals. This brand is also based out of the UK and is a new one to me! Their products represent a blending of old and new. They use many old traditional ways in their formulas but also love to implement new methods using bio-actives. Basically you end up with a skincare line that is positively active and alive!
The first product is their City Screen Protective Face Serum. This isn’t like any other face cream you’ve used- trust me. It’s full of active ingredients that literally change your skin and improve the overall protection of the skin. It fills positively lovely on the skin. My skin feels soft, supple and protected- which makes sense. The ingredients creating this protection on the skin are echinacea, marine algae, gotu kola, nettle, green tea and marine samphire. This serum is perfect for those who want to help give their skin an extra layer of protection whether you’re in the city or in the country. Love applying this before my makeup!
The second product is Digital Detox. This is their silver rich face mist. I didn’t think much of this mist when I saw it but once I read up on it and used it, I must say I’ve become quite hooked! It’s meant to not only help you remove toxins from your skin but also invigorate you and your immediate dwelling. It’s meant to help get rid of the negative effects of the digital exposure we constantly are under. From your office, or work space to your home- this mist does some serious detoxing! I already have big plans to take it with me on my travels in a few weeks. The ingredients are meant to help detoxify the air from himalyan pink sea salt, and magnesium sulfate. Plus, juniper fruit oil and ylang ylang help ease mental fog. If you see me, I’m probably carrying this with me!

The Detox Box-
The Detox Box November Natural Beauty Box featuring: Odacite.
Odacite is taking center stage this month in The Detox Box! I have had the pleasure of trying many Odacite products and I have to say they don’t disappoint. The Maker of Odacite is Valerie Grandury. A breast cancer survivor, who was on the search for natural skincare products. However, she didn’t find them. As a result she created Odacite! It’s a mix of luxe French skincare with laid back vibes of California living. A perfect marriage if you ask me!
This month we are seeing the All-Embracing Serum. This isn’t just for your face but for your whole body! An oil that does it all- yep you heard me right. Hydrating watermelon seed oil, calming and soothing oatmeal are just two of the power ingredients in this decadent oil. I massage it on my skin right after showering while my skin is slightly damp and it soaks in so nicely. I also love using it on my face too. I apply after my hydrosol and my skin just soaks it all up. It’s such a multi-tasker! Plus, you can’t go wrong with a dark glass bottle- swoon!
I was also delighted to see the Black Mint Cleanser in the box- a fave! I was excited to see it come in a travel size tube. I have the large glass bottle- not so friendly for traveling. This cleanser feels cooling on the skin, gets rid of all dirt and makeup and leaves your skin feeling squeaky clean. Wait, there’s more in this month’s box! You also receive a crystal contour GUA SHA. This rose quartz gua sha tool is perfect for performing facial massage. Facial massage is such an amazing way to increase circulation, drain lymphatic system, and reduce puffiness. I apply a little of the All-Embracing Serum first then I use the gua sha. Trust me, once you incorporate gua sha into your life you’ll never go back!

I have another Pharmaca Organic Beauty Product Review! This one is so good, ok really they all are. But I was excited to really dive a little deeper into Inika Organic products. I’ve tried a few of their products here and there and I’ve been so impressed with the quality and performance. I was on the edge of my seat to share even more of my Inika Organic Review!

So my last review I shared a few products I loved from Inika and this month I’m at it again! This brand has stolen my heart.
Wearing Inika Organic Beauty Baked Bronzer in Sunkissed, plus their Eyeliner in Coco and Mineral Foundation in Patience.
This bronzer is everything! But really. I love how easy it is to use. You don’t have to worry about being heavy handed with it. It feels so light on the skin. Plus, the color pay off is amazing! A pretty sunkissed hue, no orange face with it. Funny that I say sunkissed because that is the name of the bronzer. I apply this where the sun hits my skin. Right below my hairline on my forehead, right below my cheek bone, sides of nose and I always blend my neck too and add some brush strokes of it there. Creates a seamless finish!

Wearing the Inika Organic eyeliner on top and bottom in coco. Also, Inika Organic Sunkissed Bronzer and Mineral Foundation Powder in Patience.
This eyeliner is such a pretty brown color. I love it for everyday wear. It looks put together but a little more understated then say a black liner. I apply this on my upper lash line and my lower lash line. Sometimes just my upper. If I don’t prep my lid, the liner doesn’t last as long. But if I prep my lid with the Inika Organic Baked Mineral Foundation then it really lasts so much longer. I love how smudge able it is. It looks good even when it’s worn in a bit later in the day.
Shop the eyeliner here!
This fountain powder is so nice. I love how light it feels on the skin. It isn’t a heavy powder foundation. I like applying it by itself after priming with a primer. It doesn’t look cakey at all but really subdued. It’s also really great for applying over liquid foundations since it is such a lightweight powder. I also love that it’s a pressed powder versus a loose- so much less mess. I can’t recommend it enough if you love a pressed powder foundation!

The Art of Organics October Box: Reset is here! I love the name of this box. Reset in my mind is the perfect description to describe this season transition from summer to fall. Back to routines and a time to “reset” in so many ways. My skin is resetting too after the warm summer months. In this box the skincare products represent the perfect example of adding a little more to your skincare routine for the cooler temps. It’s time for a skincare RESET.
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.
On to the review…
Art of Organics October Box: Live Botanical Luna Renew Concentrate.
This concentrate is so lovely. I was excited to see Live Botanical in this month’s box. You all know I love this brand! I’ve had the pleasure of trying this special product before and can attest to it’s wonders. This moisturizer does so much from hydrate, deliver antioxidants to the skin and provide anti-inflammatory properties. What doesn’t this little concentrate do? I love applying it in my final step of my skincare routine. My skin is left feeling supple, smooth and completely moisturized. I wanted to describe exactly what Luna Renew Concentrate is but I thought Carolyn the founder of Live Botanical did a better job than I could…
Luna Renew Concentrate is a long and slow infusion of organic Rose, Chamomile and Lavender flowers in organic, unrefined, cold pressed Chia, Camellia and Jojoba oils create a decadent and nutritive base. Delivers powerful whole plant compounds to heal and protect the skin.
The product comes housed in a dark glass jar. It is a orange hue in color, from the carotenoids- an amazing ingredient that helps repair skin from UV damage, as well as environment and stress. Plus, it gives your skin a serious glow! I think we all could use a little Luna Renew in our lives.
Art of Organics October Box: Honua Skincare AINA Mask.
This mask is gentle but also delivers nutrients to the skin. It helps to purify your skin while at the same time nourishing it. This mask is made with Kalo powder which helps to nourish the skin with phytonutrients, minerals and vitamins A + C. It also has coconut charcoal that helps to detoxify the skin. Besides detoxifying the skin it also includes a blend of hawaiian raw honey and tamanu oil that help to soothe the skin. A great product compliment to the Live Botanical Luna Renew Concentrate.
The value of this box is $98!
