Detox Box | December 2017 – STILL AVAILABLE

The Detox Market describes the box as “a monthly box that allows us to share with you our tried-and-true favorites and game-changing discoveries. Each month you’ll receive products that are universal and exceptional—you know, the “holy grails”. Products that have people complimenting your skin, and asking what you’re doing. At The Detox Market, our search for the best in green beauty isn’t easy, but it’s worth it.
We have strict ingredient standards, high expectations for performance, and a need to connect with the passion behind each brand. The products that make it are proven to be above and beyond.” The box will feature one brand and each box has a guaranteed value of $90.00.

This month’s box included three products from Dr. Alkaitis – a mask, toner, and facial oil. I have never even heard of this brand so really love that the Detox Market includes cards that introduce you to the brand and the founder. I think the education included in the box is a wonderful touch – it gives you some insight into the products and the brand philosophy! This box also came with a booklet/catalog from the brand itself that gave detailed information on the history of the brand, quality standards, products, skincare regimens, and ingredients. This month’s Detox Box has a total value of $143.00.

Dr. Alkaitis has a PhD in Physical Chemistry and created his brand with the philosophy that “if you can’t eat it, don’t put it on your skin.” He takes a wholistic view that skincare goes beyond topical treatments and a complete picture of  good lifestyle choices lead to a healthy body and healthy skin. Dr. Alkaitis produce their products in their own factory and source their ingredients from producers that they have a person relationship with.

Organic Universal Mask – The mask is like a green juice for your skin (and it smells like!) that feed your face with superfoods such as Alfalfa, Wheatgrass, Chlorella, and Spirulina. It can be mixed with raw honey or goat’s milk yogurt! The box included a small packet of honey to try with this mask. I mixed mine with water and left it on for 20 minutes and it is definitely like your green juice in the morning – it smells gross, it’s not luxurious, but you keep doing it because you know it’s good for you.

Organic Herbal Toner – The toner is an aloe vera and witch hazel base that balances the skin. The third ingredient is “alcohol (drinkable grape alcohol)” and that made me a little nervous to use it, but the Dr. Alkaitis booklet actually addressed this concern stating “unlike de-natured alcohol that us mostly used, our organic grape alcohol is highly beneficial for your skin and facilitates the nutrient rich composition to be optimally absorbed by your skin.” I have used this twice and haven’t experienced any burning or drying from it.

Organic Nourishing Treatment Oil – This oil contains 15 antioxidant rich and anti-inflammatory herbs in a base of Organic Jojoba, St. John’s Wart, and Andean Mountain Rose Hip Seed oils. I can be used on the face, body, hair, and nails. I have not tried this yet! I have a few oils going right now and I want finish some up before I open a new one. I am disappoint that this high end oil comes in a plastic bottle – given the price point, I would expect glass packaging.

November 2017 Subscription Box Review – BoxyCharm and Sephora

img_4318

BoxyCharm November 2017 – Value $120.00

BoxyCharm x Luxie – Quad Eye Travel Set Brushes
While I wouldn’t really purchase Luxie brushes, I have received a few in different subscription boxes and I do like them. I would have preferred to get full sized brushes, but I can see myself using 1-2 of these regularly. All of Luxie’s brushes are vegan and cruelty free too!

CoverFX – Illuminating Setting Spray
I was really stoked about this because it is one of my best friend’s favorite setting sprays. I had recently visited her, tried it out, and decided to buy it. Then,  two days, later BoxyCharm released a preview of this product! The is glitter in this spray so it may not be for everyone.

KNC Beauty – All-Natural Collagen Infused Lip Mask – set of 3
I have not tried these out yet, I’m saving them for special occasions. 🙂

Laqa & Co – Cloud Lip – Storm
I really like this formula – it’s like a very pigmented matte balm. It’s really comfortable, wears for a few hours, and fades very evenly. I didn’t like the deep berry color that was in my box, but the formula is spot on.

Winky Lux – Kitten Palette
First of all, this packaging, whoever designed it deserves and A+ because I was sucked right in. All of the shadows are on the drier side, but not unworkable. If you go too hard on the mattes, they can blend away, and the shimmers are nice, but not intense.

Sephora PLAY! November 2017 – Value $50.00

Caudalie – Vinosource SOS Thirst Quenching Serum
I’ve been using this as my AM serum for 4-5 days now and I’m not blown away but I also don’t think a serum is something you can really get a good grasp on with a small sample. This a basically grape water and hyaluronic acid, so you might want to check it out if you’re in the market for a new hyaluronic acid!

Marc Jacobs – Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara
I’ve gotten quite a few samples in the past and it’s is a solid volumizing mascara (but not really worth the price tag).

MoroccanOil – Moroccan Oil Treatment
I love this oil so much EXCEPT it’s filled with silicone and I’ve been weaning those out of my hair routine so I will be passing it along. But it does literally miracles for dry, frizzy hair.

Origins – Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores
I have used this mask on and off for years and I really like it. It does a great job of pulling gunk out of the skin so be sure to use it when you don’t have anything special going on because it will pull some clogged pores to a head
This month’s Play! also came with a high pigment Sephora brand gloss (bad color, tasted like vanilla poisoned chemicals) and a Burberry Brit sample, both of which I have thrown out. Bad blogger.

DETOX MARKET – THE Subscription Box for a Skincare Addict

Look. Listen. If you are really into skincare, green beauty, or niche brands (or you really want to be) you need, NEED to check out The Detox Box. They just launched in October of 2017 and the November box is still available. October’s box was a Vitamin C Oil Serum from Odacite that retails for $150.00 *insert Home Alone screaming face*.

Each month, the box will feature one brand and each box has a guaranteed value of $90.00. The Detox Market describes the box as “a monthly box that allows us to share with you our tried-and-true favorites and game-changing discoveries. Each month you’ll receive products that are universal and exceptional—you know, the “holy grails”. Products that have people complimenting your skin, and asking what you’re doing. At The Detox Market, our search for the best in green beauty isn’t easy, but it’s worth it.
We have strict ingredient standards, high expectations for performance, and a need to connect with the passion behind each brand. The products that make it are proven to be above and beyond.”

The Detox Box November 2017 – Value $97.00

Josh Rosebrook – Hydration Accelerator
One of my favorite hydrating fist mists (I was running low on my current bottle, so this was well timed!), it’s packed with aloe juice, nut oils, herbs, and essential oils. This face mist is “a great foundation for the rest of your skin care regime. This light spray of liquid nutrition prepares your skin by lowering the surface tension of your skin cells, lubricating and loosening so that nutrients can penetrate deeper and faster. It naturally fills cells with water to make them plump and firm, helping reduce the appearance of wrinkles for a smooth finish.”

Josh Rosebrook – Advanced Hydration Mask
I have been struggling with re-balancing my skin after a change to colder weather and central heat turning on and this mask did what my other SOS products couldn’t do! I used this mask morning and night two days in a row and it brought my tight, itchy dehydrated skin back to life! Damn, if this box didn’t read my mind! – Well, it is winter, so I’m sure everyone is dry…
