Boxwalla Beauty Box December 2019 Review
Each Boxwalla box comes with a letter printed on high-quality cardstock detailing the items included. This month has three products from unisex Australian brand, Lepaar.
Lepaar Luminous Beauty Balm, 1 oz. (full-size) - Retail Value $102.28 USD ($150 AUD)
Wow wow wow. This product is hands down my favorite from the box. It only just got cold here in Pittsburgh but my skin is already drying out and needs a boost. This beauty balm is incredible at making my skin feel super hydrated and glowing! The contents of this beautiful jar are a lot less solid than I'd expect from a "balm" but I was pleasantly surprised. It has a wonderful subtle scent that comes from chamomile flower, carrot root, black cumin seed oil, turmeric, frankincense and myrrh essential oils, and others. The most extravagant ingredient though has to be the (non-nano) 24k gold which I can see the flecks of in the balm and pulls its weight to bring that aforementioned glow to my skin. In addition to the thirst-quenching formula that I can feel hours after applying, my skin feels incredibly soft as well. I know I shouldn't touch my face too much, but I can't help it! It feels and looks SO NICE. This is going to be my winter go-to facial balm.
Lepaar Luxurious Body Firming Oil, 1.7 oz. - Listed Value $35.00 USD (Buy full-size 6.76 oz. for $129.16 USD [$190 AUS])
This body oil was made to "reduce the appearance of stretch marks, and help firm, tone and strengthen the skin" which is a tall order! I began using this directly on my thighs after showering since that is where I'd prefer to see results the most and it was a very nice experience. This product also includes 24k gold like the balm as well as olive oil, vanilla fruit extract, camellia seed oil, and a plethora of others to help achieve what it promises. The oil itself is a nice balance of not too heavy and not too thin and I could immediately feel how soft it made my skin. I like to stay as touchable as possible, even in the winter, and this oil does a great job of making that happen. I'll need to continue using this to see if it yields stretch-mark reducing results, but for now, the ritual is nice enough. The included bottle is only a travel size but not a ton is needed, so it should hopefully last me a little while into the dark season.
Lepaar Velvet Sole Lip Balm, 0.17 oz - Retail Value $12.27 USD ($18 AUD)
I love that I've been showered with lip treatments in subscription boxes lately. 'Tis the season and I am here for it. This little glass tub has a metallic gold wax seal on the lid just like the beauty balm which I think looks luxurious and DIY at the same time. Their lip balm formula contains papaya seed oil, calendula extract, beeswax, and pink Himalayan crystal salt (although it doesn't add any grit at all). I'll be honest, I was expecting a thicker balm but as soon as I scooped a small portion out and spread it on my lips, it melted into a thin oil. This balm can also be used to tame eyebrows or add a dewy look to cheekbones. I don't know if this is the best balm I've ever tried, but it's beautiful and certainly softens my dry lips.
Verdict: I really like that the Boxwalla Beauty box included three different items this time that covers the needs of my body, face, and lips. It feels like such a complete curation. My favorite item is the incredibly hydrating beauty balm which is complemented nicely by the lip balm and body oil. The packaging for Lepaar is gorgeous and I like that their ingredients are pure and natural and the 24k gold ingredient is a nice little luxurious addition. For me, the beauty balm is well worth the $49.95 cost of the box on its own. With the conversion rates from AUD to USD, this box is worth $149.55 at publication.
