Mapleblume Review December 2017
Mapleblume is a premium subscription box of luxury cosmetic and skincare products containing only the highest quality ingredients that are beautifying and nourishing. The Mapleblume subscription box contains 5 full size or deluxe sample size skincare and cosmetic products. A new box is delivered to your door every 2 months filled with different products every time. They kindly sent us this box to review.
Mapleblume is a subscription box I fell in love with right away. I have been lucky enough to review a few boxes now and all of them have been amazing. It’s a little more expensive than other boxes, but the value is there and the products are quality. I always end up using at least 4 of the products we receive in each box and have discovered some wonderful brands thanks to Mapleblume. If the price point is something you can fit in your budget, I highly recommend you order yourself a box. If you like luxury skincare then you will LOVE this subscription. I promise you that!
Here’s a look at the items we received in the December box…..
Luxe Botanics Marula Hydrating Serum – $89.00
Hydrate, protect and repair with this essential skin nourishing concentrate. Skin-loving Marula, combined with vital carrier oils, infuses a burst of nutrient-rich fatty acids and antioxidants that absorb effortlessly into skin, locking in moisture to restore youthful radiance.
Skin Types: Ideal for combination, dry, mature and sensitive skin types.
Serums and face oils have saved my life!! My skin has completely transformed since introducing both skincare items in to my routine. I was hesitant to try both because my skin is so sensitive, but I’m happy to report that my skin has never looked better. As soon as I pulled this product out of the box and saw the words “hydrating serum” I was extremely excited. In fact, I credit Mapleblume for introducing me to my favourite face oil, so I’m pretty confident I am going to fall in love with this Luxe Botanics Serum. Mapleblume is known for finding the best skincare products……really they are!
Olverum Bath Oil – $66.00
A unique and luxurious aromatic blend of essential oils which combine to ease stress and relax tension in both mind and body, bringing you back to your complete and natural self.
Olverum Bath Oil is highly concentrated and only half a capful (5ml) is needed per bath. Accordingly, virtually all the oil is absorbed by the skin leaving no greasy residue in the bath after use.
Add half a capful to a run warm bath. Disperse the oil with your hand. Relax, restore, renew.
I think I have only used bath oil once or twice in the past, but that was a really long time ago. I’m really looking forward to testing this one out since it claims to leave no residue in the bath. If my face responds well to oil, I’m sure I will see great results from a bath oil as well.
Province Apothecary Radiant Body Oil – $58.00
An alluring body oil ideal for all skin types, our blend of beautiful plant-based essential oils quickly absorb deep into the skin to effectively nourish, soften and gently detoxify the body. The light and invigorating botanical fragrance will enliven and empower your spirit, leaving you balanced and revitalized.
Organic Argan Kernel oil is considered one of the most valuable and sustainable oils in the world. It is an extremely moisturizing oil, high in Vitamin E, Omega-6 fatty acids and antioxidants. It is abundant in plant sterolins, which help restore skin’s lipid layer, improving its ability to retain moisture and resulting in softer, smoother skin.
Black Cumin Seed oil is long recognized in the Middle East as a medicinal oil. It soothes and moisturizes the skin and is high in vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, B, and C, potassium, copper, zinc and selenium.
Avocado oil is rich in antioxidants, Vitamins A, D, and E and omega-3 fatty acids which deeply penetrate skin to fight dryness, dullness, and dehydration.
And we are continuing with the oil trend……..I am pretty darn excited right now. I use body oil almost every day during the winter months. It keeps my skin soft and prevents those pesky little bumps I sometimes get on the back of my arms.
Tenoverten Nail Polish in Orchard – $23.00
Get your nails holiday ready with the 8-free, long-lasting Nail Polish from New York’s Tenoverten. Orchard is a beautiful cranberry red and the perfect winter nail color.
Love, love, love this color! In fact, I plan on giving myself a pedicure this evening and I will definitely be giving this a try. It’s perfect for Christmas. Every girl needs a deep red polish in her collection.
Tenoverten The Rose Oil – $33
Not only do we want your nails looking fabulous, but we also think it’s important to keep your cuticles nourished and hydrated, which is why we’ve included The Rose Oil from Tenoverten. This all-natural oil blend will finish off the look and keep your nails in tip-top shape.
Directions: gently press rollerball over cuticles. massage to soften the cuticles and encourage nail growth. Re-apply daily or as needed.
More oil!! But this time it is for my nails. Can this box get any better?! I think not. This handy little product is a must-have for your purse and/or travel bag. I have some sort of nail oil in my purse at all times. I take advantage of long trips in the car and pamper my nails while we drive.
Au Naturale Cosmetics Super Fine Powder Eye Shadow in Tupelo – $19.00
The Super Fine Powder Eye Shadow from Au Naturale Cosmetics in the shade Tupelo is a stunning product that is easy to use and super wearable. This light shimmering beige shadow can be applied directly to your eyelid from the rollerball or by rolling the powder onto the back of your hand before applying with a shadow brush.
I’m happy to see a makeup product in the box this month. I feel like it rounds out the product mix nicely and gives me a reason to work on my eyeshadow skills. This particular color will complement all skin tones. From the looks of it I could use it as an all-over shade or to highlight my brow bones and the inner corner of my eyes.
Mapleblume Review December 2017 – Final Thoughts
Mapleblume is such a treat. I look forward to receiving this box because I know I am going to love what’s inside. I’ve never been disappointed and as I mentioned above, I have discovered some of my favourite skincare items thanks to this gorgeous little subscription. Luxury skincare items are definitely worth splurging on. Trust me. I’ve tried to save money by purchasing inexpensive face creams and cleansers, but I pay for it via dull skin, breakouts and dryness. I have absolutely no problem spending a little more on a subscription box like this because you still get amazing value and you receive luxury items that will pamper your skin.
