This month’s featured brand is Kani.

Kani Galaxy Milk Illuminating Beauty Oil – FULL SIZE! Value $32

I’ve sampled this highlighter before and it is beautiful! It’s super shimmery but easy to blend out if you want a subtle look. You can blend a few drops with your liquid foundation to get a more dewy finish, too.

But! There’s a problem with this product. As you might be able to tell from the dropper, the formula is really thick – making the dropper useless. (Check out my review of the March 2017 Petit Vour to see how this formula should look.)

I was still able to get it out of the bottle, though. Here it is swatched:

I’m going to reach out to Pearlesque to ask about this. (Fortunately, it is still useable if I use the dropper more like a spatula!)

Kani Rose Tone Balancing Facial Mist – FULL SIZE! Value $21

Normally I’m not a big fan of rose scents, but the added Hibiscus makes this one a winner! It’s a light mist, designed to be used before putting on makeup, or as a refresher to use throughout the day. (The mist is pretty fine, too, so it will work over makeup.)

Kani Mermaid Bloom Neroli + Vanilla Ocean Mist – FULL SIZE! Value $18

This spray smells so good! It’s light, floral, and tropical. I love it! I thought it was a little strange that it is designed to work on both your face and hair, but I gave it a try! The first ingredient is aloe, so it’s a hydrating mist, and I think it would be a perfect refreshing treat on a hot summer day.

I liked the mist on my face, and it worked as a light perfume on my hair. I didn’t notice much change in texture like I do with sea salt sprays, though.

Kani Paraiso Citrus Rose + Vanilla Body Elixir – FULL SIZE! Value $36

I couldn’t find this item on the Kani site, but I hope they make it available soon – it is officially my favorite item in the box. The citrus and vanilla scent is like a tropical creamsicle, and it’s such a lightweight body oil – perfect for summer. This is my new post-shower treat!

 

Verdict: This box has a retail value of $107 I think that’s a good value for a $40 beauty box that sends you natural and organic beauty brands! I love that I got to sample more items from Kani – I’m so impressed with their brand! And the Body Elixir is one of my favorite discoveries this month!

What do you think of the June Pearlesque Box? What’s your favorite item this month?

  1. Kani has great customer service. They replaced my galaxy milk which arrived as a solid. Nice product, I just wish it didn’t have soooo much glitter in it.

    The other products were very nice and smell so good.

  2. This is one of my favorite Pearlesque boxes. I love the smell of the body elixir and the mermaid bloom.

  3. I had the same issue with the Galaxy Milk, but I have nothing to compare it to since I have never sampled it before

  4. I ❤️ Pearlesque…

    All my products seem to be in good order – the galaxy milk does seem a little thick like Liz’s in the review but I would have thought it was normal? I mixed it with BB cream yesterday and blurred my imperfections and looked great! (With a few sparkles that I wonder if people could see??)

    The Rose Mist is FABULOUS – I adore it. I really like the body elixir! And the other spray is nice too but I’m picky about scents – especially in my hair – so this may stay a face / body or even room spray. Or maybe my mom would want it. 😀

  5. Think maybe Kani (as lovely as their products themselves are/can be) has some quality control issues. I had an issue with my mermaid bloom bottle being defective, reached out to customer service at pearlesque – she is really very nice and responded right away. I haven’t checked my galaxy milk yet though but now I am a little concerned – seems like the label is different then it used to be too, not as nice, more like just a printed paper sticker….
    Another thing I noticed is that it seems like Kani products in general are a little on the small side because 2 oz for a full-size/full price body oil seems a little nuts to me, same goes for a hair product- which is a shame because I absolutely love them so far!

    • I also had an issue with the mermaid mist being delivered with the cap partially unscrewed resulting in about 1/4 of the product having seeped into the box. While it’s unfortunate, I’m going to let that one go, but I did gift the galaxy drops to my mom, so I’m going to have to tell her to double check its consistency. She was going to use it for the body anyways, so I’m sure it’s fine for that purpose.

  6. So sad I missed this one !

  7. The smell of all of these products is heavenly! The highlighter is very glittery so I’ll probably mix it with body lotion or see if I can sheer it out to wear it on my face. Love a highlighter but this stuff can be seen from space! How does this rose tone compare to herbivore’s mist? Haven’t tried herbivores but was eyeing the BB Vogue kit. I was a little shocked about the packaging of the oil and price but it smells amazing. Not sure I would spend $36 for that. Love the mermaid bloom but don’t really know the purpose so I’ve just been spraying as a light perfume.

    • Also having problems with the galaxy milk – all galaxy , no milk. Hopefully we can get replacements

      • I reached out to customer service about the Galaxy Milk being thick and goopy. They responded right away stating it’s supposed to be like that which I don’t believe considering the appearance of the sample in Petit Vour’s March box. It looks totally different. With it being so thick, I’m not sure if the whole bottle will be usable considering how hard it will be to get the product out. I think I’ll email them again with pics from PV’s box and see what they say. If anyone has a different response from Pearlesque, please let me know. Thanks!!

        • Mine was so thick the dropper was pointless. I added drops of rosehip oil until I got the consistency I wanted.

          I use this stuff in the summer to add a hint of shimmer to body lotions.

    • Nicole – I agree on the body oil! And I was just curious, is your galaxy milk super thick/missing “milk” too, or did the formula seem normal?

      • Mine is thick also and I was just scraping the side to get it out. I reached out to customer service but I will find a way to use it regardless. It smells nice but is just very glittery so not sure I would want another vial unless I’m dressing as C3PO for Halloween this year.

      • I just received a replacement galaxy milk from Kani directly. I emailed Pearlesque about the consistency and never received a response but was pleasantly surprised by the bubble mailer with the product and a 15% off coupon for future purchases. The new one has slightly different packaging. The font is printed directly on the bottle and the bottle feels a bit heavier. I am able to shake the bottle and it has more of that milk consistency. The dropper is also working and the product seems easier to work with. Same great smell and very vibrant but less chunky and glittery in my opinion. Very impressed with Kani products and customer service.

        • So good to hear you got a better quality bottle! I reached out to Kani directly asking about the Galaxy Milk and got a response saying they had switched wax suppliers and the batch we all got had a much higher melting point than their previous formula- she then offered to ship me a replacement as well, so I am happily looking forward to that 👍

  8. I LOVED this box. KANI makes such beautiful products. I was so excited to get the galaxy milk, I get the mini bottles and have never gotten the large on (they last forever). Unfortunately the one I got was all galaxy, no milk (all the shimmer as a solid mass, no oil, c’est la vie 🙂 but i reached out to customer service so hopefully will hear back soon. Beautiful products. Love the hair/face mist, i’m going through it too quickly since i love the smell so much.

    • I don’t understand why Kani doesn’t produce a perfume!! Everything smells sooooooooo good!
