This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out our editorial guidelines to learn more about how we review boxes.)

First Impressions

The first thing I noticed about this box is that it didn’t contain any products from Nourish Naturals, which is pretty unusual. I was doubly surprised when I realized not one but two products from Seraphine Botanicals were included this time around. Now, let’s check out this month’s unique product curation.

 

Each month, Nourish Beauty Box usually arrives with an info card that has a quick overview of the box on one side and more detailed information about the products included on the other. This month I did not receive a card.

Now, on to the items!

DERMADELI Pumpkin Seed Serum, 30 ml - Retail Value $35

 

I was introduced to the Dermadeli brand through this particular subscription box and have become quite familiar with the high quality of their products. This Pumpkin Seed Serum is no different. Featuring star ingredients pumpkin seed and pomegranate seed oils, it’s a powerful daily serum that packs a punch and promotes healing and nourishment for the skin. Since it is oil-based, there’s a much more oily texture to it than you would expect from a serum, but I have to say, it doesn’t have much of a greasy feel to it and does absorb pretty quickly into the skin, which impressed me.

That being said, as someone with sensitive skin that often doesn’t respond well to oil-based products, I likely will not use this on my face in order to avoid a breakout, but I’m super excited to have this as a body oil. I’ve been using this on my stubborn eczema patch and other dry areas like my elbows, knees, etc., and it’s really improved the skin’s texture, leaving it feeling silky and smooth after some consistent use. I appreciate the light scent of the product; it’s definitely not overpowering, and it has more of a natural aroma to it, which I almost always prefer as opposed to a chemical fragrance.

SAHARA ROSE Divine Beauty Serum, 30 ml - Retail Value $48

 

Here we have another oil-based serum. At first I found myself wishing for a bit more variety in this box, but after giving this Divine Beauty Serum from Sahara Rose a test run, I’m sold. Do I plan to use this on my face as a step in my skincare routine? No. However, I will most certainly be using this serum (like the one above) as a body oil. I appreciate the hydration that this serum delivers to my skin. It works wonders especially when applied to rough patches. The texture is a bit thick but it has a very luxurious, soothing feeling to it. There is a slight floral scent to it but that quickly dissipates, which I appreciate. When I applied this serum to my skin, I noticed that it has a definite greasy feel to it, and it does take some time to absorb, but afterward, it leaves my skin feeling nourished and silky smooth to the touch.

SERAPHINE BOTANICALS Pink Marshmallow Brightening Mask, 30 g - Retail Value $49

 

Your girl right here is a huge fan of face masks. But please, give me a sheet mask or a peel-off mask any day. When it comes to DIY masks like this Seraphine Botanicals Pink Marshmallow Brightening Mask, I become a bit apprehensive; not because the process is difficult but because I don’t have an abundance of relaxation time, and so with that time, I prefer to experience the least amount of frustration as humanly possible. Hence, my obsession with sheet / pull-off masks… I’ll be passing along this lovely product to a friend of mine who truly enjoys DIY masks and will get much more use out of it than I will. That being said, if you are a fan of making your own masks and finds the process enjoyable, this mask might be just the thing for you. All you have to do is measure out one teaspoon of the mask and then trickle water (or unflavored milk or yogurt for ultimate hydration), mixing until you reach the desired consistency for the mask. Simply leave it on for ten to twenty minutes and then rinse off for rejuvenated, brightened, and soothed skin.

SERAPHINE BOTANICALS Cotton + Cloud Pore-Blurring Airbrush Powder, 3 g - Retail Value $28

 

Well, well, well… Seraphine Botanicals hit us with a one-two punch this time around. This Cotton + Cloud Pore-Blurring Airbrush Powder is a unique product, acting as a primer in the form of a powder. I really like the texture of this powder; it truly is ‘cloud-like’ as the name suggests. Similar to a setting powder, I just took a large makeup brush and dusted this powder all over my face before applying makeup. I was pretty impressed with how nicely it worked for me, giving a wonderfully matte look that stayed looking fresh for longer than when I use other primers. I found this product worked really well to help blur the appearance of fine lines and pores. Plus, the powder also doubles as a setting powder (in a way), providing a boost of a mattifying look over makeup.

Verdict

This was a good month for the Nourish Beauty Box! The highlight for me was Seraphine Botanicals’ powder primer. I love the consistency of the product, and it works really well to smooth out my skin under and over my foundation. The Dermadeli serum was a welcome inclusion, and it truly did wonders for my eczema patch. We also received a second serum from the brand Sahara Rose. After applying, it leaves the skin feeling nourished, hydrated, and smooth to the touch. Lastly, we were sent Seraphine Botanicals’ brightening clay mask powder. Although I’m not much for DIY masks like this one, the brand’s products are always quality, so I’m sure my friend is going to love this. Overall, I thought this was a good box. I do wish there had been one, not two, serums included, leaving space for another unique product, but otherwise, the value is certainly there.

I stayed silent when I received an almost expired AIMI serum last month and emailed the company, which said they would send me an extra product in October, a pineapple exfoliation product.

Today, I received a box from NOURISH for my OCT. box and it is NOT the October box, it is odds and ends from the summer boxes, per the reviews here.

I did not receive one product that the reviewer received. I received:
1) Suntribe Sunscreen ( short shelf life) and is very tiny
2)Suntribe all Natural Night Cream ( expires in January!) same size as 1)
3) AIMI Chamomile Hyaluronic Acid Serum ( the product that expires soon in Sept’s box) and this one expires even sooner- 12/22.
4) Tiny aerosol can of Purfect brand White Truffle Hydrating Face Cream.

That’s it. No cosmetic product, no card about the products, of course, as they are leftovers. I hope you will publish this even though your boxes are comped because there are problems at Nourish Beauty Box and they involve customer safety most of all. Also truth in their sales is absolutely lacking. I should not have received a box of odds and ends soon to expire instead of the October box.

I am very sad that this is happening, likely to many people buying the box.
Thank you for reading. I can provide photos if anyone doubts what I have said. I don’t know what to do, actually, because promises have already been made by them and broken not 30 days later.

What I received is listed on the Nourish Beauty Box site as their Skin Defense Set, on sale for $19.99.
It contains all the products I listed above. I still do not know where my October box is or why I got this old stuff. It should not have been sold, IMO, but discarded.

I did want to clarify that they may or may not send an October box out, as I have emailed them asking why I didn’t get the October products, and they are nice enough but not exactly quick to believe their customers from what I have seen.

Please do not buy this Skin Defense Set. It has very tiny products and the stock is OLD.
