ABOUT THE BOX
We're celebrating our 8th Birthday! Our Aug/Sept Birthday Box has over $80 worth of full-sized beauty and personal care products from some of our favorite brand partners: get ready for a night (or day!) out with clean beauty from Evio Beauty and Orglamix, or end the day with a refreshing hair cleanse using plastic-free, zero-waste haircare from Bars Over Bottles. If you are a VIP customer, you will receive one more full-sized item: a pack of 6 face mask sheets from Purlisse!
The Aug/Sept Essential Box features 4 full-sized products and a vegan makeup tool with a total retail value of $82.38; the VIP Box features the same items as the VIP Box plus one more full-sized skincare item with a total retail value of $110.38.
A face primer that smooths imperfections and protects your skin to help your makeup look last all day. This silicone-free primer is packed with a blend of oils and extracts to soothe your skin, minimize the appearance of pores, and reduce redness.
Apply a dime-sized amount to clean, moisturized skin and wait a few minutes for it to absorb before starting your makeup routine. Apply before your face foundation to not only help your makeup last, but to also help hydrate your skin. Don’t wear makeup? No worries - you can also use this primer on its own as a face moisturizer!
For our Birthday Box, we collaborated with Orglamix to customize two beautiful eyeshadow shades for Fall and all year round!
Orglamix eyeshadows are long-wearing, crease-resistant, and all-natural containing no fillers, binders, or extenders typically found in most mineral makeup. When applied, you will get a rich, dense, and decadent color that glides on smoothly and blends effortlessly. Each eyeshadow is formulated with pure mineral color pigments and fused with light-reflecting, ethically-sourced mica.
You will receive ONE of our two custom universal shades - tested on and perfect for all skin tones:
💜 Fall LOVE - soft, flattering peachy pink with subtle shimmer
💜 Fresh Fall LOVEly - rich, soft brown with a mellow gray undertone and subtle shimmer
You can apply this eye color for shading, lining, and highlighting your eye makeup. For all-over color, apply the eyeshadow with a dry brush; for a more intense color, apply with a dampened eyeshadow brush.
The Orglamix eyeshadow brush has a medium flat head and a beveled edge to smooth and perfect application of eyeshadow.
This earth-friendly makeup brush has a bamboo handle (which has a low impact on the earth’s resources), synthetic taklon bristles (which is 100% vegan and cruelty-free), the metal ring at the center of the brush (also known as the ferrule) is made from recycled aluminum, and the packaging is PLA-based (which is a bio-plastic source made from plant extracts like corn).
Don't forget - it’s necessary to clean your makeup brushes regularly! We recommend washing your makeup brush after every use to prevent bacteria from forming and to protect your skin from any breakouts, rashes, or infection. Using lukewarm water and a gentle soap, shampoo, or dedicated brush cleanser, swirl the brush tip in the palm of your hand to form a lather, and rinse under running lukewarm water. Continue this process until the water runs clear from the bristles.
When you're finished, gently squeeze out excess moisture, reshape the bristles (if needed), and lay flat to dry on a clean, dry towel or paper towel. Let it air dry, but avoid direct sunlight!
The Detox Shampoo Bar cleanses impurities, manages oil production, and revitalizes your scalp after every wash. Key ingredients include Activated Charcoal (which absorbs impurities and pollution residue), Black Clay (which controls scalp oils and helps boost hair strength and growth), and Eucalyptus Essential Oil (which has antiseptic properties helping prevent excessive scalp flaking).
Take your time and breathe in the invigorating, herbal fresh scent as you do your hair care routine!
To use, wet hair & scalp and apply the shampoo bar directly onto your scalp using circular motions working it into a lather until the desired amount of foam is achieved. Massage your scalp with your fingertips, spreading the lather from root to tips. Rinse thoroughly (and repeat application if needed) and follow up with the Ultra Moisturizing Conditioner Bar.
The perfect solid conditioner bar that deeply moisturizes your strands, helps control frizz, and reduces split ends. Packed with nutrient-rich oils that help reinvigorate resulting in soft and shiny hair. Key ingredients include Shea Butter (which softens dryness and deeply moisturizes), Ylang Ylang and Geranium Oils (which gives the conditioner bar a sweet floral scent), and Pracaxi Oil (which acts as a natural conditioner, improving hair shine, reducing frizz, and treating dryness).
After using the Detox Shampoo Bar, wet the conditioner bar and slide it from the middle of your hair to the ends (do not apply to your scalp!). Rub with gentle circular motions and use your fingers or a wide-toothed comb to spread evenly along the lengths of your hair. Let it sit for at least 2 minutes and thoroughly rinse.
Purlisse Matcha Green Tea Antioxidant Sheet Mask (set of 6), $28.00 value
Reverse the clock and instantly calm skin with the Matcha Green Tea Antioxidant Sheet mask. This natural fiber mask soothes and nourishes skin while fighting free radicals and improving skin textures.
Formulated with a superfood star ingredient - Matcha Green Tea - and packed with a cocktail of antioxidant-rich vitamins and minerals that stimulate and rejuvenate skin cells to visibly improve signs of premature aging and hyperpigmentation.
Start with clean skin and gently place the mask on your face, adjusting to fit over your eyes, nose, and mouth. Don't toss out the packet yet! Take the leftover serum inside of the pack and apply it on your neck, chest, and décolleté. Relax and leave the mask on for about 15-20 minutes, letting the essence absorb into your skin for a radiant and rejuvenated complexion.
Remove the mask, but do not rinse off! Instead, follow up with your favorite moisturizer to lock in the nourishing benefits and hydration.
During warmer days, leave a sheet mask inside your refrigerator for an hour or two for an extra refreshing and cooling self-care moment!
