June Boxwalla Beauty Box w/ 5YINA

junij 01, 2019

Hi lovelies! How are you doing? I don't want to be one of those people who glorify the word busy but I've been so busy lately that I didn't find much time to write here on my beloved blog. So let me keep this short, I want to introduce you to the June Boxwalla Beauty Box today. Spoiler alert: it's so gorgeous!

In the June Boxwalla Beauty Box* themed 'A Summer in Hangzhou' you will find two products from 5YINA: LUCENT Summer Hydrolat and LUCENT Summer Beauty Oil. Check it out here.

5YINA was founded by Angela Chau & Ervina Wu at the end of 2015. This is my first time trying out the brand and I have to say that I like them a lot. Both founders are trained practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine and they formulate their luxurious products to integrate the wisdom of Chinese medicine with modern science. The products are also formulated keeping in mind the different seasons and how our skin's needs changes with each season. Of course Lavanya of Boxwalla chose 5YINA's LUCENT Summer Beauty Ritual, that was inspired by summer spent in Hangzhou, China.

LUCENT Summer Hydrolat is a beautiful Aloe Vera based hydrolat. This is a hydrating facial mist with distilates of Cucumber, Helichrysum, Peppermint, Honeysuckle and Witch Hazel. To these are added in-house extracts from Chinese medicinal plants like Green Tea, Snow Mushroom, Ginseng, Licorice Root, and more. These products are easy for me to describe their scents but in this hydrolat I can smell Neroli. I find this mist to be hydrating and really nice. I've been using it before I apply my serum and oil, after I apply my makeup and sometimes I also like to use it throughout the day, when I feel like I need a little pick me up. It's beautiful and I would for sure like to try their other hydrolats as well. You can check out the LUCENT Summer Hydrolat here.

LUCENT Summer Beauty Oil is a lightweight facial oil that I've been using daily, am and pm. It is made in a base of Camellia Seed Oil, along with Sacred Lotus, Perilla seed, Schisandra Berries, Snow Mushroom, and there are also Sea Buckthorn and Rosehip Seed Oil. The oil has a gorgeous orange colour and a scent that I can't describe for the life of me. There's Jasmine, Petitgrain, Patchoulli, Vetiver - I have no idea what I'm smelling but I like its herbaceous aroma. It's described as clarifying, purifying and balancing and I will have to say that I do find it balancing & great for my combination skin. I adore its lightweight consistency so much, really a joy to use. You can check out LUCENT Summer Beauty Oil here.

Let me just share how I like to use these two products.

In the morning I use the hydrolat, Earthwise Beauty Nap in the Meadow*, Bluh Alchemy Eye Oil Serum* and then a blend of Summer Beauty Oil + Earthwise Beauty Farizad's Veil Sun Reflector.

In the evening I first apply some fresh aloe vera (straight from the plant), FYINA'a hydrolat on top, following up with Bluh Alchemy Eye Oil Serum* and 5YINA's oil.
