Boxwalla Beauty Box February 2021 Review
Here is our info card:
Let’s peek inside!
Nini Organics Crimson Beauty Face Serum, 50 mL – Retail Value $94.00
If you can send me a skincare formula that I love AND that is gorgeous to look at, I am going to be really happy. Nini Organics does both really, really well. Their products come in this beautiful frosted glass that showcases the formulas inside which are always some sort of gorgeous color created by this brand’s careful and thoughtful use of botanicals. This serum happens to be a very pretty ruby shade and it has a thinner gel texture. It also happens to be the brand’s first water-based serum. The two big ingredients that the brand focuses on in its description of this product are Quora Noni (regulates oil production and helps with environmental disruptions. Hello maskne!) and Arabian Cotton which is antioxidant-rich and helps protect against blue light. With so much of my time being in front of a computer or behind a mask, this serum was exactly what I needed!! Though I do have drier skin, I found this was totally appropriate for me too because it also has hyaluronic acid and soothing extracts from cucumbers and roses. It also has a very pleasant and tart hibiscus scent that enhanced the whole experience and it layered well into my night routine.
Nini Organics Rain Hydrating Essence, 50 mL – Retail Value $48.00
Mist me all day. Seriously, hydrating mists might be my favorite sort of beauty product. The right formula can be almost as hydrating as a day cream! And the dewiness and antioxidant boost? Yes, please. This formula is the prettiest purple color, and that shade comes from the butterfly pea flower. The nozzle projects a heavier (but not aggressive) mist that has a botanical scent I can’t quite place. Unlike most of my mists, I noticed a tingle when I used this one, and I am guessing that is from salicylic and lactic acids, both of which help with exfoliation and are acne fighters and the tingle wasn’t unpleasant and didn’t last long. I thought this mist was very hydrating and the ingredient list is stellar. Some other callouts: cucumber extract, neroli water, and hyaluronic acid. The whole effect was soothing, moisturizing, and refreshing. If you have been on the fence about mists in the past because they don’t do enough for you, this is a great one to try because those ingredients get work done! You can use this before your Crimson Beauty Serum and throughout the day as you wish.
Nini Organics Halo Cleansing Elixir, 5 mL – Estimated Value $3.45 (buy 100 mL for $69.00)
Our last item is a mini sample of cleansing oil. As soon as I looked at it I knew there had to be blue tansy inside, and the first scent confirmed this. Blue tansy has a very distinct smell that I really love. It is also a really great ingredient for inflammation and redness. This paired with nourishing jojoba oil, antibacterial passionfruit seed oil, and vitamin E make for a really fantastic oil cleansing experience. I like to use oils on dry skin if I can and treat the cleanse like a mini massage, really taking time to rub my face in smaller circles and press on areas of tension. Then rinse or simply wipe with a damp cloth.
Verdict: This Boxwalla Beauty box let me do a deeper dive into Nini Organics, a brand I love more and more. Their formulas are artfully blended to showcase the best of the chosen botanicals, and they are just so fragrant and lovely! I thought pairing a serum with the mist was a great choice, especially since these two products work so well together. I also liked testing out the cleanser, though that sample certainly could have been a little bigger. Even so, this box delivered a great value, totaling $145.45 for a $49.95 box.
