Here’s a look at the items we received in the August box…..
Multi C Serum – Bluh Alchemy ($205)
Multi C Serum harnesses the power of age defying peptides and the world’s first stable Vitamin C from Kakadu Plum Cellular Extract. The Kakadu Plum is wild harvested by indigenous communities exclusively in Australia’s Northern Territory. Cellular Extraction delivers the first “True to Nature” complete phyto-active profile of a plant. This superior form of stable Vitamin C represents a true breakthrough for the skin care industry as the commonly used synthetic alternatives rapidly oxidize when exposed to water and air. Kakadu Plum is the highest known source of Vitamin C containing over 50 times more C than a Florida orange. This potent antioxidant provides protection from free radical damage caused by environmental aggressors and UV rays, reducing the signs of pre-mature aging. Multi C Serum has a luxurious creamy-gel consistency that absorbs quickly to plump, firm, brighten skin tone and improve elasticity, resulting in the ultimate youth renewal for your skin.
Wow!!! Check out the retail value of this first item! This serum alone covers the cost of the box, and then some. I love a good serum and I love that this particular product has taught me something new. Until now I had never heard of the Kakadu Plum, and I had no idea a plum could contain 50 times more vitamin C than a Florida orange. Vitamin C is an amazing ingredient when it comes to skincare, I really can’t say enough about it. I am really looking forward to trying this serum out.
Mermaid Mask – Leahlani Skincare ($50)
Dive into this pot of emerald green goodness and discover mermaid magic. Think of her as a super-food green smoothie for your skin. Made from the soil and nectar of Hawaii, this verdant beauty will help to nourish, purify, soften and renew your complexion. She is full to the brim with nutrient dense Hawaiian spirulina and raw honey, premium chlorella and circulation-boosting essential oils that will feed each cell on your precious face, resulting in the ultimate glow.
This is the most unique mask I have ever seen. It’s a dark green/black color, it has a unique consistency and it has the most unique smell. I love that it contains spirulina and chlorella, two of my favourite health supplements. I can only imagine how good they will be when applied to my skin.
Coconut Beach Shimmering Body Oil – Rachel’s Plan Bee ($16)
A combination of nourishing oils that will leave your skin feeling soft with a subtle shimmer giving your skin a gentle glow. The scent is light, yet warm and intoxicating. Press this luxurious oil blend into your skin and take your summer look to the next level.
I was in need of a new body oil as I just ran out. I use body oil on a regular basis, almost daily, especially during the Summer months. This one smells like the beach and it has just a tiny hint of shimmer. It is made with some of my favourites oils – apricot kernel oil, sunflower seed oil, meadowfoam seed oil, grapeseed oil, and cranberry seed oil.
Suntegrity LIP C.P.R. SPF 30 Lipstick ($37)
Infused with Lip Repair Lipids and Konjac Root Wrinkle-Filling Spheres to visibly reduce the look of fine lines, zinc oxide for Broad Spectrum SPF 30 protection without chemicals, and a hint of stevia for a touch of sweetness.
Suntegrity LIP C.P.R. Nourishes lips in rich, creamy color with a sun-kissed shimmering finish. Formulated exclusively with pure pigment, never dye, for color that won’t bleed or feather into fine lines. Organic jojoba oil, shea butter and cocoa butter smooth, hydrate and moisturize for a lush velvety feel.
Here we have a gorgeous shade of lipstick complete with SPF. This lippie receives great reviews and promises to help reduce the look of fine lines. Perfect for your beach bag.
Liquid Liner – Pure Anada ($14)
This silky-smooth, 100% natural liquid liner glides on easily with a precision brush applicator. The smudge-proof formula (not waterproof) is highly pigmented with pure minerals.
Lastly we have a liquid liner from another really great brand. I have received Pure Anada products before, my favourite being their mascara. I love that this particular liner is 100% natural. It’s important to pay attention to the products you use on your face, especially those for the eye area.
Mapleblume Review August 2018 – Final Thoughts
The August Mapleblume box has a “Summer Glow” theme and a total retail value of $322. Let’s keep in mind that this box only costs $120 which means we received more than double the cost of the subscription itself. I am very happy with the products and brands we have received and I love that there is a subtle Summer theme throughout. An amazing serum and mermaid mask to give our skin a summer glow, a beach scented body oil, a gorgeous lipstick with SPF and an all-natural liner perfect for a Summer date night look. This is a box I am always happy to receive and the products are items I am happy to use. If you like luxury skincare and makeup items as much as I do then this is the box for you.
