February Boxwalla Beauty Subscription Box

I love the Boxwalla Beauty Subscription Box. It’s an every other month box and runs $49.95 each box. So far I have loved their green beauty curations. Details about the subscription box per Boxwalla:

Green beauty products often get the bad rap of being boring & ineffective. The Beauty Box challenges that notion and lets you experience the most effective and nutrient-rich beauty products we have experienced, exquisite products that harness the potency of plant-based ingredients. Always cruelty-free.

This February box ‘Moonlight & Silver Sleep’ introduced me to MUN Skincare & AMLY Botanicals. I have heard of MUN Skincare and it’s been on my wishlist for some time so I’m excited to play with it.

AMLY Botanicals Beauty Sleep Silver-Rich Facial Mist boosts skin repair & longevity. Details per AMLY Botanicals:

A restorative face mist with powerful ingredients to support natural healing sleep. Fatigued skin will crave a nightly spritz of Amly’s unique silver-rich spring water, laden with rejuvenating botanicals reputed for their beautifying and soporific properties. A star ingredient, Snow Algae activates overnight collagen production and cellular repair to ward off signs of ageing by boosting the skin’s longevity. Extracts of Passionflower, Valerian and Hops help relieve tension, while essential oils of Clary Sage, Linden and Roman Chamomile quiet the mind and soothe away the day’s stress. Rose Quartz, Benzoin and Rock Rose imbue warmth and provide comfort, while Echinacea calms irritated skin and smoothes fine lines. A deep foral scent, with earthy sweet notes, Beauty Sleep is infused with sublime floral waters of Neroli, Lavender and Geranium to indulge the senses and replenish the skin. The perfect bedtime ritual.

Directions Shake well before each use. Close your eyes and spray liberally on to face, neck and pillow. Breathe deeply to allow the soothing oils to appease the senses, release tension and induce sleep.

MUN AKNARI Brightening Youth Serum Transform skin from lifeless to luminous with this all-in-one, glow-giving treatment serum. Details per MUN Skincare:

The stunning results of this lightweight age-defying serum are due to the potency of Prickly Pear Seed Oil, also known as Barbary Fig Oil.

I love the cards that come in with the Boxwalla boxes. Very informative. The mist retails for $70, the serum for $95. The retail value for this box is $165. Sadly the subscriptions are closed for it, but the ones for April are open. You can however buy a one time box (non-subscription) for $59.95 HERE still.

I have been spraying the AMLY Beauty Sleep mist every night. In between a few layers then again at night right before bed as a last spritz. The bottle is a heavyweight luxe black glass and the spray is so fine I love it. The scent is a richer green deep floral. It’s very soothing and de-stresses me at the end of the day. I love aromatherapy before bed to wind down. You can definitely smell the clary sage which I love. This has a few essential oils in this mist but it’s not too powerful. I didn’t find it overpowering by any means. This mist also contains neroli flower water, aloe and lactobacillus ferment. Snow algae is interesting. It increases cellular longevity by increasing cellular repair. There’s a very interesting research article on it HERE. A very nice mist to play with.

I love that the MUN AKNARI Brightening Youth Serum has only three ingredients-Prickly Pear, Argan & Bulgarian Rose oil. I love prickly pear oil and it’s one of my favorites. High in linoleic acid and phytosterols as well as vitamin E. Argan oil is high in ferulic acid and squalene. Bulgarian rose oil adds a hint of scent but nothing overpowering. This oil has a silky feel and it sinks in beautifully. It’s a nice medium weight oil that isn’t too heavy. I know it was supposed to be a night oil in this box but I’ve been using it more in the day right now. I look forward to getting more into MUN Skincare in the future.

  1. I’ve been contemplating to start ordering Beauty Heroes, but the Boxwhalla is killing with its latest boxes. I’ve been intrigued by both brands for ages! I hope the box doesn’t sold out until I get my next paycheck haha.
