Pearlesque Box December 2017 Review
This month’s featured company is SkinOwl where all products are vegan, cruelty-free and non-toxic.
SkinOwl’s sole mission is to educate you about your skin & deliver the best products, so that skin “care” can be the catalyst to caring about every genuinely important facet of your life.
The other side goes over the products included, how to use them, and the retail price.
They also included a card with a small thank you note from the Pearlesque team, wishing us a joyous holiday season.
When I first saw the price of this I thought “whoa” which I really shouldn’t since I am a woman and I know how much high end and natural beauty products can go for. I immediately noticed the sweet fruity bubblegum scent of this serum when I opened it and I enjoyed it very much.
It comes, like most serums, in a bottle with an eye dropper for application. Now, I’ve been receiving a lot of facial serums lately (mostly actually from Pearlesque Box) which is a little annoying, but it also has helped me make the switch from a cream moisturizer to a serum. This one feels slightly different than the others I’ve been using and I think that it’s because it’s slightly thinner and thus feels a little less oily than others (if that makes sense).
I hadn’t heard of maqui berry until now, and doing a little reading online has told me that it’s supposed to be the newest antioxidant superfruit. The maqui berry is native to parts of Chile and Argentina and is mostly harvested from the wild or small home gardens, which is my guess as to why this is a pricier serum.
As the bottle and info card says, this serum will help with dark spots, and help reduce signs of fatigue and invigorate a lackluster complexion. I never get enough sleep and especially now in the dry winter, my skin can certainly use all the help it can get. This is to be applied at night so it can soak in as you sleep. I’ve only been able to use it for about a week now and although I’m not sure I’ve seen obvious results, I do love the way it smells and feels on my skin.
SkinOwl Eye+, .5 oz. (travel size) – Listed Value $28.00
Although this .5 ounce size is only available in their travel kit, the info card gave it a retail value of $28. I unscrewed the cap of this to reveal a lovely cucumber smell from this thick yet lightweight eye cream. I’m so glad that Pearlesque + Skin Owl decided to include a product like this since I haven’t gotten too many products specifically for that area, which I desperately need.
The cream boasts to “combat fatigued, tired, run-down skin” and suggests using it around the eye area, as well as on forehead and cheeks. You can use this anywhere, but I have been choosing to smooth it around my eyes at night, as well as my forehead and neck (where I have the most deep-wrinkles). This can also be used in the morning as well and is fine to wear under your makeup routine. It had an instant cooling effect and as it dried, I felt a slight tightening of my skin that wasn’t unpleasant at all. Pearlesque also suggest popping it in the fridge for extra de-puffing. I look forward to seeing long-term results from this eye cream.
Verdict: Pearlesque Box kept it simple with two products this month from Los Angeles-based SkinOwl. Even though I was slightly bummed to see yet another facial serum (as I got two last month and another the month before that), I was impressed with the full size and retail value of the maqui berry beauty drops. I’m probably more excited about the Eye+ and really feel pampered when putting it on. For $39.95, I received two products that have a total retail value of $113. Whoa!
