The Detox Box is a green beauty subscription box from The Detox Market that costs $55/month. You'll usually receive 2-3 products (although just 1 this month) from a featured brand each month that follow their strict ingredient standards and help you discover non-toxic ways to continue your beauty routine. What I love about this subscription is that I can try popular and undiscovered brands alike at a really good value!

The Detox Box January 2020 Review feat. Ayuna
In each Detox Box, you'll receive two cards with your products. One introduces the featured brand (Ayuna) and has a short Q+A with the founders Begona Sanjuan and Isabel Ramos. The other card details the star product that Detox Market has curated this month. Choosing to send just one item is a gutsy move since it's hard to please everyone, but this one is a direct hit for me since I already love the brand.
Ayuna Cellular Oil, 1 oz. - Retail Value $185.00
I 👏 AM 👏 OBSESSED 👏 WITH 👏 THIS 👏 BRAND. I was first introduced to Ayuna in another beauty box, but was OVERJOYED to see it pop up in Detox Box and with a new product, no less! The January box brought us the cellular oil from the brand, which has a sticker-shock-worthy retail price of $185. I can be a little bougie, but I certainly am not normally the type of woman to throw down that much on a product, even if I love it. What I mean is- this is a wonderful way for a commoner like myself to try a really high-end clean beauty product at a fraction of the cost. The only danger is falling in love with a product that is this far out of my price range. It's like watching women on Say Yes to the Dress try on wedding gowns that are wayyyyy out of their budget and then falling in love with them. I digress.
So, what is in a $185 facial oil? Along with some classics like sunflower and sweet almond oil, this one-ounce bottle contains micro-lipids from the stem cells of the Spanish millennial olive tree. But the secret weapon is really their technology in which the oil is extracted directly from the stem cells' membrane. Do I know what that actually means? Sadly, no. But this oil is some next-level stuff.
If you've been lucky enough to smell Ayuna's signature scent (it's called "Beautifulness"), you'll recognize it here as well. I don't think it's for everyone because it is so unique (there is some sort of vinegar-like element to it but I swear it's in a wonderful way), but I am certainly here for it. Read more about it under question seven here if interested because I can't begin to explain it. I have been using this oil for about a week and honestly look forward to each morning and evening routine because of it. It only takes about three drops for me to be able to smooth over my entire face and neck and it slowly seeps in over the course of a few minutes or more. They suggest warming it in the hands before doing so and even inhaling the scent deeply through your nose to begin the experience (which I also highly recommend). One evening after only cleansing my face and putting this oil on, I stepped out of the bathroom and my BF exclaimed something to the effect of "Gosh, how do you look so put together and beautiful so quickly?" I was like "uhhhh- I'm just gettin' ready for bed over here." But I think that speaks to how amazing this makes my skin look when using this. It just creates a natural, beautiful glow unlike any other. It really just hydrates, softens, and makes me feel fantastic overall.
Verdict: I know I am laying it on thick this month, but Detox Box struck gold for me. The featured brand is amazing, the product is other-worldly, and the value? It's a gosh darn dream. Although this is only a 0ne-ounce bottle (full-size), I think it will last me quite some time which makes me feel better about the price tag. Will I rebuy it after this one runs out? I would probably have to eat PB+J sandwiches for a while, but boy, would I consider it.
