Each April Boxwalla Beauty box will include:

1) Aloe Hyaluronic Moisture Boost (full size, $79)A lightweight gel serum that provides a serious boost of hydration to the skin. This serum uses a two pronged approach to hydration, containing both low & medium weights of hyaluronic acid as well as calming, vitamin rich aloeClary sage tones the skin & reduces inflammation. 

2) XX Rose Glycolic Gel (full size, $74) : An exfoliating serum that gently resurfaces skin with  glycolic acid in a soothing base of rose water. Glycolic acid is one of the most studied alpha hydroxy acids.

  1. The first product seems OK, but the Glycolic Gel is not something I need. I use The Ordinary’s Lactic Acid 10% once to twice a week. It’s a little less harsh on me as a “resurfacing” agent than it’s glycolic variety; however, I eagerly await what May brings! 🙂

  2. This box always delivers quality. It’s going to be difficult to top the Votary ‘Seed Collector’ box, though. I’ll never be able to go with those products now!

    • *Without

  3. I’m scared of hyaluronic products sucking moisture from the deeper skin layers because I live in a very low humidity climate and I avoid them as much as I can.

    I’ve read the suggestion to just make sure to use an occlusive moisturizer over so the moisture doesn’t escape but then what is the point? The whole point is HA is supposed to draw moisture into your skin. Thoughts on this?

    • I’ve researched, with the same results, that hyaluronic acid can actually suck the moisture out of your skin, instead of holding and putting more in. If it can’t pull water in from the enviroment because the humidity is low, than it will actually suck it up from the inside of your skin, in which, can actually make your skin drier. I also have researched that low molecular weight hyaluronic acids can actually act as pro-aging. Low molecular weightH HA serums actually can cause inflammation in the skin and inflammation in the skin actually speeds up the aging process. Now.. I do use hyaluronic acid, but only in High Molecular Weight. I also only use it right after I shower, while my skin is still wet and just layer it on my skin. I let it go for about a few minutes until my skin gets less wet and is damp, than I use a serum, while skin is still damp, and then a thicker moisturizer that is water based and contains occlusive’s to help hold that extra water in my skin. So far this has worked for myself and makes my skin look hydtrated and plumped up. Hope this helps.. I am not an expert. but have done a lot of research and just thought I’d share what works for me. I would by this box if the one serum didn’t contain Lower Molecular Weight HA. I try to never use anything that cause inflammation on the skin, as I get enough of it from pollution, the sun, and even from certain foods,,ect.. Hope this helps..

      • This lines up with what I’ve read as well. I like your idea of using it on freshly showered skin since its already plumped up the HA would also have something to hold onto. It would be great if it were to help draw in the serum as well. I will have to try this, thank you.

      • Thank you so much for this information Melissa!

    • I wrote a very long reply.. not sure why it didn’t show up? Maybe because I wasn’t signed into my account, in which case, I think they review reply’s before posting. I hope so anyway, because it was too long to write all over again, but it was some info for you about your questioning of HA products.. If it doesn’t show up in like 5 hours, I’ll re-post again..

      • I’ll check back for it, thank you. 🙂

      • Just thought I’d share that I’ve never had a MSA account to post comments…. unless it was on the forum. That’s weird how some comments get held up sometimes…. it definitely makes for some awkward responses, because sometimes I’ll answer someone’s question if I see no one has replied, but then later that day like 2 or 3 other comments will magically appear above mine, then mine just seem (to only me maybe) like I’m REALLY trying to drive home the point of the answer. lol!

      • Yeah.. not sure why some comments go through right away and some don’t. My long post that didn’t get through, I wasn’t signed into my account at the the time, so before I posted about how my post didn’t go through, I logged into my account and it went right through.. Very odd.

  4. Not impressed with the product. The ingredients of both products are very basic, not sure why the price so high. Also, boost has lavender oil in it which I tried to avoid. I wish we can skip the box, but I guess I just cancel for now.

  5. Hmmm. The moisture boost sounds great but I am not sure I would like the second product because of the rose water base. I may end up canceling. I will have to give it some thought.

  6. Very excited! Serums are my favorite skincare item.

  7. Never heard of this brand. I am not tempted though after getting previous months box which was outstanding with RV over $200. This one I am sure is great and would get if I didn’t have so many products already. But as is, I have no problem resisting.

  8. New to this box – Are there only two items?

    • Yes

  9. I’m pretty sure I’ve heard of this brand before, but it’s definitely new to me as I know I don’t have any products from this brand. I’ll need to dance around it for a little while though before deciding. 🙂

  10. This one looks amazing to me!
