April Clean Beauty Box feat. Wabi-Sabi Botanicals

april 07, 2019

Loves, I have a rave review for you today. If you have been following me for a while then you know I have lots of love for The Clean Beauty Box and Wabi-Sabi Botanicals. This month the two collaborated and I couldn't be more pleased about it. So without any further ado let me introduce you to the April Clean Beauty box.

In the April Clean Beauty Box* themed BALANCE are two full size products from Wabi-Sabi Botanicals: The Giver Illuminative Ritual Cleanser and Balancing Act Intensif Serum no. 2 with Crystal Roller. You can check it out here.April Clean Beauty Box BALANCE Wabi-Sabi Botanicals The Giver Illuminative Ritual Cleanser, Balancing Act Intensif Serum no. 2 with Crystal RollerApril Clean Beauty Box BALANCE Wabi-Sabi Botanicals The Giver Illuminative Ritual Cleanser, Balancing Act Intensif Serum no. 2 with Crystal Roller

The Giver Illuminative Ritual Cleanser is a "high performance, illuminative ritual cleanser and makeup dissolver". This cleanser is everything! I've only used it twice thus far but I'm already completely in love with it. Oh my goodness, it's so stunning. The Giver contains 5 ingredients: Sapote, Rosella Hibiscus (nature's botox and a natural source of AHA's), Moringa (combats acne and blemishes) & Roasted Coffee Bean Oils, and Cacao Absolute. It has a gorgeous scent of roasted coffee and I can also detect something else, something sweet, or is it citrusy? I have no idea but there is something in there that I can't point my finger on and it's so nice. I can only smell it while I'm massaging it onto my face. Check out what says in the pamphlet that comes in the CB box: "revel in the sweet cherry-almond aroma of marzipan, coffee and cacao". Sounds beautiful, doesn't it? And it is. I messaged Elysse, the founder of Wabi-Sabi Botanicals asking if I'm smelling Sapote, because I've never smelled it before and she said yes. So The Giver has a beautiful aroma of roasted coffee and a sweet, cherry like, marzipan scent of Sapote. It's stunning. Not only that I'm obsessed with the scent (and I rarely drink coffee) the cleanser itself is beautiful & very effective. I use oil cleansers in the evening and to me they are the best for removing my makeup and I've said it numerous times before that I love the warmth of a washcloth that I use to remove everything from my skin. I use a few pumps of the oil and gently but thoroughly massage it onto my face and it really effectively removes every trace of makeup, even mascara. I'm really impressed with it & I highly recommend it. The Giver can also double up as a moisturizer or hair oil which I haven't tried but I hear it works great for that too. You can get Wabi-Sabi Botanicals The Giver Illuminative Ritual Cleanser here.

Balancing Act Intensif Serum no. 2 with Crystal Roller is an exclusive pre-launch with The Clean Beauty Box and I'm so down for it! What we have here is a different kind of packaging, a clear frosted glass packaging with a limited edition Brazilian Tiger's Eye crystal ball applicator, and in a larger size. I've tried and used Balancing Act serum before (I mentioned it here) in the white glass packaging and I find this serum to be really lovely & great for blemish-prone skin. I love Wabi-Sabi Botanicals' intentional use of ingredients and their minimal ingredient lists. This oil for example contains only three oils: Guava (soothes, firms & protects skin from environmental damage), Sacha Inchi (helps reduce appearance of scarring & wrinkles, balances acne-prone skin, rebuilding the skin's natural protective barrier) and Borage (helps regulate hormonal imbalances, calms inflammation and hydrates thanks to high levels of Gamma Linoleic Acid). This oil serum was created specifically to treat & balance combination and oily-prone skin, soothe inflammation, and reduce pore congestion. It's packed with Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids and oily and acne-prone skin has been shown to lack in those fatty acids. Balancing Act is very lightweight, has a fresh & green scent of Sacha Inchi (it actually smells like freshly picked peas) and it really helps to balance out my skin. I have to be honest, at first I wasn't sure about the packaging. It's very rare to have a face product, an oil that comes with a roller ball applicator (which are standard for eye oil serums). But when I first opened the serum and saw the beautiful Tiger's Eye crystal and applied it to my face I immediately fell in love with it. It's super easy to use & great for travel too. So I just roll it on my face and massage/tap it in. I now want more oils with crystal roller ball applicators and hopefully Elysee will give us more. You can get Balancing Act Intensif Serum No. 2 here but if you want this super special packaging with the crystal roller ball then get this Clean Beauty Box here.

I'm so, SO in love with the April Clean Beauty Box! Wabi-Sabi Botanicals is such a magical brand and the founder Elysse is amazing. She places a special emphasis on cooperatives that empower women through fair wages and working conditions, and I really feel so honoured to be a Wabi-Sabi Botanicals brand ambassador (see here). Elysse shared this quote in their stories yesterday: "You cannot exploit women in one country to empower them in another" and that's something to think about. Deeply focused of sourcing as sustainably and ethically as possible, Wabi-Sabi Botanicals products are formulated with organic and/or organically wildcrafted plant ingredients that contain active phytonutrients essential to skin health. Love.

And what about that packaging?? Damn, it's so pretty!

The beautiful crystal print was made by Zoe Wodarz. Check her out @zoe.wodarz.
