Hey friends!! Wow, we have seen some truly chilly fall days around here lately and it makes the fun seasonal touches in this month’s Beauty Box feel like such a treat. We really wanted to channel those autumnal vibes since everyone is beginning to change up their skincare and makeup routines. Last month was our first to ship the box and seriously, you guys blew us away with your amazing unboxing pics and videos! It was so special to see you all enjoying our favorite products as much as you did and having fun trying out new things all in the name of clean beauty!
Let’s get down to it: Here’s what comes in the November Box …
Each box includes a postcard print. On the back there is information about each item with some tips on how to use the product if needed. This month, we chose “be kind.” It’s a message that has resonated so much with us recently as it seems like putting kindness out into the world means more than ever right now.
Oui Fresh Peppermint Essential Oil (value $10) – We never go anywhere without peppermint essential oil in our bag, and we use this oil even more around the holidays! It’s so festive and has so many benefits: sniff if you’re feeling carsick, or mix with a carrier oil and apply to your temples to relieve headache pain. Peppermint Oil is for adult use only; it is not safe for children under age 6 due to its high menthol content, which can in very rare circumstances cause slowed breathing.
Lip Smoothie by Thistle Farms (value $4) – Not only is Thistle Farms a local Nashville brand (we’re so excited to tour their production offices in a few weeks!), they also employ women survivors of trafficking and abuse. We are so proud to include them in this month’s box! This lip smoothie is so moisturizing and smells like a fresh berry smoothie. We are big on keeping our lips hydrated under lipstick, and this is a great product to apply as you start your getting ready routine. By the time you get to lipstick at the end, you’ve given this product time to melt, settle in, and prime your lips.
Glow Stick by Pink House Organics (value $12) – This highlighter from Pink House Organics is a game changer! Especially in the fall and winter when your skin is prone to being drier, using cream-based cosmetics can help your skin to glow where powder can sometimes magnify dry patches. For our favorite application method, rub the stick onto your fingers and blend into your cheekbones and other areas the light naturally hits with a soft patting motion. You can also use this as an eyeshadow (we love an inner corner highlight!). Pink House is a family owned Canadian brand that we’ll be spotlighting on the blog later this month. Their story is amazing and we really love their products.
Pumpkin Enzyme Peel by Erin’s Faces (value $12) – A reader urged us to check out Erin’s Faces, and we’re so glad we did. This clean glycolic exfoliant treatment will make your skin incredibly soft and help to smooth out any texture or scarring. An added bonus: It smells exactly like pumpkin pie! This treatment is great for all skin types except for extremely sensitive, and if you got our box last month, the Shea Moisture Facial Oil is the most amazing follow up for this peel.
Coconut Papaya Hand Cream by Nubian Heritage (value $10) – When it comes to skincare, hands tend to get neglected. We love that this nutrient-rich hand cream doesn’t feel greasy, but keeps our skin hydrated in this cold and dry season. You can put it on and instantly return to work or driving without feeling like you’re leaving lotion all over everything; it melts into your skin super quickly. For some people that switch to natural beauty, they really miss lotions and creams that are more sweetly scented, and this product really checks that box; you’ll be impressed by the staying power of its totally natural fragrance.
*Boxes cannot be customized. As with any subscription box, it’s normal to expect you’ll get some things you love more than others. The purpose of it is to try new things at an amazing value. Each month will be a different assortment, but it will always include some skincare and makeup. We will not do skin-tone-specific makeup colors (so don’t worry, we will never send you a foundation that doesn’t match your skin!). If you get something you don’t like one month, just share it with a friend! You can read more on our FAQ page and you can SUBSCRIBE HERE.
