I received my January Pearlesque box just before Christmas, so I’ve had a few days to try to products in this box and I am in love. They are perfect, especially for the cold, dry season of winter.
Last winter I got my first (and well, only, so far) facial at Heyday in Manhattan. My concerns were my horribly dry skin, and what I perceived to be my first wrinkles setting in. My facialist introduced me to adding oils into my skincare routine, and believe me when I say I no longer have worries about the wrinkles I thought I was getting.
This months box has three products from Akar Skin, a brand created after the creator visited Tibet (considered to be the 3rd cleanest place on earth, in terms of pollution!). Akar means white crystal in Tibetan, and means purity. These products are as pure as they can be. They sent a facial toner spray, facial oil and lip butter (and a cute little travel bag, seriously I can never have enough!).
The toner spray and oil combo is amazing. You use them together, first misting your face and then dabbing the oil on. It smells so lovely and sinks in almost immediately, skipping that long term greasy feeling I get when I’ve tried other oils. This is definitely the best one I’ve tried so far.
The lip butter is perfect too. I’ve heard before that things like chapstick and vaseline actually dry our lips out more long term, and the product info sheet that comes with the box confirms that. This lip butter has all real, organic ingredients, to deliver pure moisture to keep your lips naturally luscious. Such a fan.
Pearlesque box is a monthly subscription beauty box, but they’re different and (in my opinion) the best because they deliver such amazing products from all over the world that you may not have had a chance to find/try otherwise. And all the product lines they choose for their boxes are organic, non-toxic, and vegan. Each box is worth about $100, but priced under $40. You get a box every month, or you and pick and choose which months to get a box. They’re an awesome company. It’s such a win all around!
If you’re interested in trying them out, I have a code for ya – BROOKLYN15 for 15% off your first box. 🙂
