Each box includes a card detailing the items included. This month’s featured brand was Raw Is Everything.

October’s Pearlesque box included 2 skincare products. The Raw Is Everything brand focuses on single ingredient skin care using cold-pressed, unrefined oils.

Raw Is Everything Facial Moisturizer, FULL SIZE 1 fl oz – Value $55

The first item is a facial moisturizer. I’ve never used a face moisturizer that wasn’t a cream, but I had read that oils can be good for oily skin, so I was excited to give this a try. The single ingredient in this moisturizer is passion fruit seed oil. After washing my face, I applied 3 drops to my hand and then applied to my face and neck. The smell is very natural and not packed with artificial fragrance. The product did leave my skin a bit greasy right after application but fully absorbed after a few minutes, leaving my skin hydrated.

Unfortunately, the cap fell apart when I first opened the product. The good news is, I can still use the dropper without the plastic cap components.

The oil is applied in drops from a glass dropper attached to the lid of the bottle.

Raw Is Everything Antioxidant Treatment, FULL SIZE 0.5 fl oz – Value $45

This antioxidant treatment is meant to prevent photo-damage, even skin tone, restore elasticity, and hydrate. The single ingredient in this treatment is raspberry seed oil, which I have a fair complexion with a lot of redness due to my rosacea, so I’m always looking for ways to even things out.

This formula is meant to be applied throughout the day. I applied this about 30 minutes after the moisturizer. This did leave my skin looking a bit shinier than I’d like so I would recommend this as a before bed treatment or a great daytime treatment for anyone with dry skin.

Here’s a look at the glass dropper inside the bottle. The lid components stayed intact for this bottle and make using the product very easy. With the lid on the bottle, just press on the button on the top of the lid and product is pulled into the dropper tube. With the lid removed from the bottle, press the button again and the product is pressed out of the dropper.

Verdict: Pearlesque Box lets me discover great organic and natural brands that I’d otherwise never find. This month’s box had a retail value of $100 which is very good for a $39.95 box. This box had only 2 products as opposed to 3 or more in previous boxes, but that’s ok for me considering the total retail value. I have tried and loved a few body oils before but this was my first time trying face oils. I have oily skin so adding more oil scares me a bit, but I really liked the facial moisturizer! The treatment was a bit too greasy for me to wear on a daily basis. This was not my favorite Pearlesque Box so far but it was still a solid box.

What do you think of the October Pearlesque Box?

  1. I love Pearlesque box, and their customer service is great as well!

  2. This box always sounds really great. I am really interested in trying out skincare that is natural esp for my face. I like that one brand is featured with usually full size products. The products always look high end and luxurious. I will probably try this box out once i cancel bb and use up some of my current lotions and potions lol

  3. I really liked both products a lot. I may have read it wrong, I was only using the raspberry oil by itself during the day, not over the moisturizer, and it absorbs beautifully. I love this subscription, I still use and have repurchased several of the products from the OSEA box.
