The Detox Box March 2021 Review
The info cards provided give us some details on the items included this month, as well as some background on the Pai Skincare brand, one I already know and love! It is one of my top picks for sensitive skin, but I find it works well for everyone!
Light Work Cleansing Oil, 3.4 fl oz – Full Size! Retail Value $49.00
As a double cleanse enthusiast, you know I am all about an oil cleanser! You can use oil cleansers like this directly on dry skin and they do a wonderful job of breaking down makeup, sunscreen, and dirt. I like to really take some time with this step and give my face a good massage. I usually rinse then follow up with a creamy cleanser, but in a pinch, you can actually just wipe an oil cleanser off your face with a cloth if you aren’t close by a sink or shower. This formula is a blend of a few oils: olive, sunflower seed, and castor. It also has extracts from rosehip and jasmine and has a fresh and slightly tangy citrus scent.
System D Eye Serum, 15 mL – Full Size! Retail Value $59.00
I enjoy eye creams and especially ones that come with a cool application feature. The nozzle of this tube is made out of ceramic and it somehow always feels super chilly! That coldness makes this cream feel extra special and soothing around my eyes. I liked this formula too! It has ingredients that are wonderful for that thinner and extra sensitive skin. Notables include glycerine, hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, lactic acid, and squalane. It takes very little to get good coverage too. I squeeze a little and then gently move the cool tip across my undereye and also on my lids. I like to use this at night before bed to wake up feeling fresh.
Rosehip Bioregenerate, 10 mL – Full Size! Retail Value $29.00
This was my favorite product this month. That should shock no one because I am an oil fanatic. This little orange treasure has a super short ingredient list: rosehip oil, rosemary leaf extract, and vitamin E. It is a heavier oil with a rich scent that might be a turn-off to some. I personally found it tart and earthy and wonderful! This oil has a CO2 extraction process which is a tad more labor-intensive (and, well, expensive, too) but captures more of the natural goodness from the rosehip seed which is full of different fatty omegas that help skin heal and repair its moisture barrier.
All Becomes Clear, 1 fl oz – Full Size! Retail Value $69.00
This last item seems like it was tailor-made for my gross maskne issues. Normally I wouldn’t be leaning into a blemish control-oriented product, but it is looking wild up under my mask these days. This stuff was very, very lightweight and almost feel like a cream-gel hybrid, with a heavy emphasis on the gel. The superstar here is zinc PCA, which is awesome for congested and acne-prone skin. It works by regulating/balancing sebum production and also killing acne-causing bacteria while still being very gentle and somehow, quite naturally moisturizing. I have been applying this under my mask for a few days and it has helped reduce my bumps and also made me feel like I look less red under there too.
Verdict: I already adore this month’s Detox Box brand, so this box felt like a real treat. I also found that the offerings inside felt extra generous and all were very useful to me. The value was also pretty great: $206 for a $55 box! These items together form a sort of routine too, which is always a plus to receive in one box altogether to try. This is a box that consistently delivers really great brands at a wonderful cost, and this month was no exception.
