LuxePineapple-Post-March-2017-Info-Card-and-Letter

Each box comes with an info card and a letter from the owner. In the letter, the owner, Liz, elaborates on each item and her motivations behind picking them. This month is all about the LuxePineapple team’s favorite self-love and beauty accessory finds.

LuxePineapple-Post-March-2017-Bath-Soak-Front

LuxePineapple-Post-March-2017-Bath-Soak-Back

Dirty Mermaid Beauty Citrus Sea Soak 2 oz – Value $6

This is a hand-blended, organic seaweed and Dead Sea mineral salt sea soak from woman-owned brand Dirty Mermaid. I love the pink grapefruit and bergamot essential oils infused into the soak. It smells like sparkling fresh squeezed lemonade! I know the point of this bath soak is to “treat yo self” but I hardly ever use bath salts, much less take baths. However, I recently read a tip online that you can repurpose bath bombs and soaks into air fresheners. So, I poured some of the Citrus Sea Soak into an organza baggie, tightened it with a satin ribbon, and stuck it in my car. Now it smells like a summer beach party in there! My next project will be to permeate every room in the apartment with this delicious scent.

LuxePineapple-Post-March-2017-Cleansing-Oil

Honey Belle LUXE Organic Cleansing Oil 0.5 oz – Value $14

Honey Belle is a female-founded company that emphasizes natural, handcrafted skincare. This cleansing oil is handcrafted with a base of organic cold-pressed apricot kernel seed oil. It can be used as a daily cleanser and a waterproof makeup remover. I first fell in love with oil cleansers while exploring Korean beauty. Now, they are a staple in my skincare routine, which is why I was thrilled to try this product out.

LuxePineapple-Post-March-2017-Cleansing-Oil-Dropper

I tried it as an all-over cleanser. The oil smelled pleasant and glided across the skin. It removed waterproof makeup with ease and without irritation. However, the oil itself was difficult to wash off, which made my skin feel super greasy. It refused to come off the skin without using a more traditional, water-based cleanser. After my double cleanse, I ran a toner-soaked cotton pad over my face to determine any leftover makeup. Unfortunately, the test came back positive– I found evidence of eyeliner and BB cream residue on the cotton.

I’m still going to experiment with this cleansing oil, but it won’t be replacing my favorite cleansers for the foreseeable future.

LuxePineapple-Post-March-2017-Charcoal-Soap

Lavami Charcoal Hand and Body Soap 2.8 oz – Value $8.90

Lavami is a woman-owned brand that makes skincare products with non-GMO, natural, and sustainable ingredients. This charcoal soap is suitable for face, hands, and body. Charcoal is a great ingredient for oily and acne-prone skin, so I was delighted to see it. It contains 100% pure cedarwood and patchouli essential oils, which gives it a warm, lush fragrance. Most surprisingly, it doesn’t have a super “squeaky clean” feeling nor does it feel stripping at all. My hands and face feel comfortably clean and even moisturized afterwards.

Here is the soap in my hand for scale.

Fornash Enamel Disk Charm – Listed Value $18

I couldn’t find the exact piece on the Fornash website but there are similar designs here. This is a beautiful and high-quality enamel charm, but I must admit the retail value is quite high! It measures 1 inch in diameter. It isn’t something I would pick out on my own but I can definitely see myself using it as a handbag charm or a necklace. Picture this: a 26-inch silver rope necklace with an orange pendant over a chiffon blouse, tucked into chino shorts, and topped off with a wide brim hat and espadrilles. I NEED to make this outfit happen!

LuxePineapple-Post-March-2017-Silicone-Sponge

LuxePineapple-Post-March-2017-Silicone-Sponge-in-hand

Silicone Makeup Sponge – Listed Value $6

The silicone sponge trend exploded on social media and among beauty lovers recently because this sponge doesn’t absorb or waste foundation like most brushes and blending sponges do. I chalked it up to gimmicky marketing but I’ve secretly been wanting to try it out myself. It’s as if LuxePineapple read my mind!

There was a slight learning curve involved, but once I got used to the blending technique it was surprisingly fun to use. I have yet to perfect the makeup application technique but this silicone tool definitely shows promise.

LuxePineapple-Post-March-2017-Headwrap

LuxePineapple-Post-March-2017-Headwrap-Closeup

Microfiber/Bamboo Headwrap – Listed Value $10

This is a microfiber wrap that will simultaneously dry your hair and keep it away from your face. I love the absorbent fabric. It’s also easy to use and it works with my medium-to-long hair. I remember my mother used to wear hair wraps just like this– it was even the same pink shade as this! I regularly put on face masks right after taking showers, so this will definitely kill two birds with one stone.

Verdict: This month’s LuxePineapple Post has a total value of about $63, which is way more than twice the cost of subscription! I loved the curation, both in terms of featuring independent, women-owned brands and compiling the loveliest “treat yo self”-themed box. It even featured a super trendy item in the form of the silicone sponge! Even though one of the items didn’t work for me, I still feel positively about the box overall.

  1. I love luxe pineapple… She is just the cutiest… Always going above and beyond for her customers.. She cares and it shows… A busy women owned business just doing her thing… She even has a horse named Jack…. Anyway her boxes are always really different and most of the products I never heard of or seen…. It’s not the same old.
    Loved the review and like someone else said earlier, “Thanks for your honesty. ” Those are the reviews I love to read… Thanks girlfriend…

    • Thanks Beth! <3

  2. Oooo nice tip with the bath salts. I usually use them up for foot soaks.

    • No problem! Though, now that it’s been in my car for a couple of days, I do wish the scent lasted longer! 🙂

  3. Those were my thoughts EXACTLY when using the cleaning oil…. it did not get make makeup off & I had to triple cleanse. However, the oils are fine quality and this made a great bath oil! Can’t wait to try the soap now! Thank you for the honest review!

    • Thanks for reading Taren!

  4. I loved this box! I love the smell of the soap (although it seems to get stuck in the tin) and I love the cleansing oil! It has a great smell and is high quality. I’ve used the hair wrap several times as well as the silicone foundation applicator. Great box this time around!

  5. I all of a sudden want a summer beach party in my car!

  6. Thanks for the tip on the re-purposing mineral soak, and for the informative review of the cleansing oil (and the rest of the items).
    Well done, Nancy!

    • Thanks Liz! 🙂

  7. The head wrap is so much easier to use than the one from PopSugar! It’s easy to twist and stays on!

    • Am I the only one that doesn’t know how to wear these head wraps?? I can’t figure it out!!

      • The button goes at the back of your neck, then twist the front and attach the loop on the button. The PopSugar one is harder to use, even after watching the video, and lots of people agreed on here.

        • THANK YOU! I took a pic of my screen with my phone and I’ll try out your tip tonight! 😀

      • You are not alone my friend! I was like “aw man! another one that I can’t figure out…”

  8. I love this box, as soon as my sub is up I’m going to renew it. I can’t wait to try the silicone sponge, still haven’t done that yet. I was most excited about the cleansing oil too; but haven’t tried that yet either lol.

  9. I need to swap for that amazing hair wrap if anyone doesn’t want theirs. This box looks fabulous.

    • That hair wrap is so awesome. I was happy with most of this box. Thanks for being a great company, luxe pineapple!!
