Pearlesque Box October 2019 Review feat. EiR NYC


Each month you’ll find an info card inside introducing the featured brand. This month brings us three products from EiR NYC, a skincare brand for active people.


EiR NYC Face Rescue, 2 oz. – Retail Value $45.00 (on sale for $33.75)

First off, EiR has stellar packaging. It’s clean minimal design really speaks to me and I think fits the sporty aspect of their products. The first item featured is a full-size bottle of their face rescue which is a facial serum made with elderflower-infused oil and it smells delightful. Like a facial oil, they suggest using this in lieu of creams or moisturizers. It’s lightweight and not very thick at all but takes a little time to fully seep in. For that reason, I’ll most likely use this at night so it has time to penetrate dry skin or use is extremely sparingly after cleansing and before my makeup routine.


EiR NYC Fresh EiR, 2 oz. – Retail Value $20.00

This next product is a little unique to me. It’s not a face mist or deodorant, but an odor eliminator that can be used on the body, equipment, or as a hand sanitizer. It has a nice strong sage, cypress, and witch hazel scent that I love and conjures up winter feels. This is probably best used after a workout or strenuous activity when you’re a little ripe and want to keep things fresh. This strikes me as a good product to keep in a gym or travel bag.


EiR NYC Hydration Hero, 2 oz. – Retail Value $40.00 (on sale for $30)

The third and final product comes in solid form and has a bonus wristband keeping the tin secure that you can presumably wear as well. At least, I think that’s what it’s for? Or maybe it just keeps a water-tight seal. At any rate, this facial cream is called “hydration hero” and is made with something called Kalahari melon oil that is packed with omega 6 fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins. This heavy-duty balm needs to be warmed up with your fingertips to allow easy application to the skin. Like the facial oil, I can see myself utilizing this more in the colder months when my skin needs ultimate moisture. I also may be more inclined to use it as a balm for dry elbows and chapped skin and lips. It has a light scent coming from the included jojoba oil and rosemary extract as well.

Verdict: Pearlesque Box hooked me up with some products that will come in handy for the upcoming cold weather seasons. While I wish there was slightly more variation instead of including two face products, both can be used on the body as well and the oil can most likely be used on hair too. These products come off as super unisex as well so anyone can delight in the extra moisture. The total retail for this box is $105 which is fantastic for a $39.99 cost, especially if you’re curious about EiR products.

  1. Don’t be afraid to use the solid hydration hero on the ends of your hair, or even a little more if your hair type would like it. It works well as a night time mask that you wash out in the morning.

    November’s box looks like it’s going to be fantastic too. I hope that trend continues!

  2. I have the hydration hero on my nightstand, the deodorizer spray in my bag for on the go, and the face oil I use all the time not only as a great face oil but also a cleansing oil. This stuff melts my most difficult makeup right off!! That’s actually why I finally jumped on the Pearlesque subscription this month, because I was running low on the oil and wanted more, and got two great products for free along with it!

    • Great tip, using it as a cleansing oil! I skipped this box because I still have half a bottle left of the one we got in last year’s box, and I really want to use it up before it goes bad. Do you use a regular cleanser after you use the oil to remove makeup, or do you use it as a 1-step cleanser? And do you use it to remove eye makeup as well?

      • Usually I just use witch hazel or micellar water afterward to get anything extra off, since between the oil melting it away and then using a makeup removing cloth, the combo works wonders! Yep, even on eye makeup!

      • Nice! I’ll have to try that. Thanks for the tip!

  3. Marne, thank you for the review of this box.

    Pearlesque is intriguing but I do struggle a bit with how beneficial any ‘only natural’ ingredients are going to be for the skin. I guess if it feels nice on, that’s a benefit.

    I just struggle with EiR’s statement, ‘The products are made with simple, 100% natural, chemical-free ingredients, making them safe for children and perfect for anyone wanting clean, healthy skincare.’

    The people at EiR NYC don’t seem to understand what a ‘chemical’ is (considering they list a few of them in the ingredients) – crikey, even water is a ‘chemical’ compound – and the disarming claim about the safety of 100% natural ingredients looks past the potential toxicity of the eucalyptus oil in its air freshener. I’m not saying it’s poisonous in this form, or at its unknown concentration, but these bogus ‘no chemical’ statements and implication that if it’s natural, it’s safe, just drive me bonkers. The brands – EiR NYC, and Pearlesque by association – have taken a nosedive for me. Sorry for the rant – I just hate when marketing spin is left unaccountable. Off my soapbox now…

    • That’s a soapbox we share. Thanks for saying this!

    • I’d say they mean free of synthetic chemicals.

  4. Thanks Marne! I loved your review and the versatility of this box. I ended up using the hydration hero at night on my heels. I can’t get enough of the scent.

    • Great idea for usage, Tiffany!

    • Happy to hear, Tiffany!
