I’m so excited to share this beautiful Maple Blume box with you all!! Over the years, since switching to clean beauty, I have done several subscription boxes and the problems I have run into : 1) I usually only find 1 item or so that I like, which leaves me disappointed I spent the money. 2) They come too often and products pile up and clutter overwhelms me!
What I like about Maple Blume is that it comes 4x a year (February, May, August, November) and ALL items are well-rounded and full-size! They have items for body, hair, skincare, and makeup.
I’ll be sharing the box for February, which is close to selling out so grab it while you can!
Here’s the lineup of items :
— The Hair Oil from Prim Botanicals
— SUNDAYS Detox Bath Salts from MS Skincare
— AUM Restorative Body Oil from MS Skincare
— Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum from Viva Health Skincare
— Avocado Waterproof Mascara – Black from Ere Perez
— Jojoba Eye Pencil in Stone from Ere Perez
TOTAL RETAIL VALUE for the box : $220.81
what you pay (USD) : $91.26
Let’s dive into my absolute favorite from the entire box : the hair oil!! I was pumped when I saw it was in the box because here in Colorado (and in winter) my hair has been desperately dry! This oil seemed like it would be wonderful but I had no idea how intoxicating the smell would be. It is HEAVENLY!!
Next up, I have been using this nonstop. I shower and then coat my arms in it. I get keratosis pilaris in the winter especially (little red bumps on my arms, called “chicken skin” ha!) This seems to really soothe it and it has a beautiful lavender in it. It smells 100% pure – the nose does not lie! It relaxes me.
Makeup time! If you follow me on instagram, yall know I am ALWAYS exploring green beauty mascaras. I truly think it’s a tricky category that has not been mastered yet. I saw waterproof on this one and got nervous, but I found it’s actually easier to remove then some of my other regular green beauty mascara formulas! I LOVE the volume it builds and it did not flake or run one single bit on me. And sadly, I had my dog pass away last week and I cried for DAYS and this mascara did not budge (trust me, I put it to the true test!) For me, it’s a winner and I plan to purchase the regular formula next.
It comes with the eyeliner too. I’m also a good test subject for this one because my eyes run and are sensitive with most that I’ve tried other than Beautycounter, Mineral Fusion, and this one. I lined my waterline with it and found it give the perfect amount of smoke. It’s got a bit of a purple smoke underhue which I was totally digging. I also tried it lined heavy on the top and smoked out, which looks super chic!
For the skincare item, it is by Viva Health Skincare and features hyaluronic acid, which I’ve been seeing a lot of buzz over lately. When I see the word acid I immediately think of a drying out – but hyaluronic acid does just the opposite – it allows your skin to retain extra moisture which gives you that glow!! Now this mixture is NOT for those looking for strong forms of it. It is not the single ingredient in the mix, the first ingredient is actually water. So maybe try this out if you are someone with sensitive skin or wanting to explore how you do with the acid.
All in all, I’m super impressed with this box. I also happen to love supporting women business owners who truly care about getting safer products to people, without having to compromise quality or experience.
Maple Blume won me over!
