Aaaand we’re back with yet another amazing Mapleblume box! First, let me give you the spiel in case this is the first time you’re hearing about it. Mapleblume is a luxury, Canada-based clean beauty box. You get 5 full and/or deluxe sized products delivered quarterly (both skincare and makeup) and Mapleblume has introduced me to so many great brands that I now consider favorites. Let’s see what was in the Mapleblume May 2019 box!
The feature product in the May box is the Supreme Moisture Mask from Nuori. I’ve never tried anything from this brand before but dang, isn’t the packaging so pretty?! I was instantly drawn to this when I opened up the box! It’s full of hyaluronic acid (my favorite lately) which helps to restore moisture levels in the skin, as well as squalane and betaine to help strengthen the skin’s natural barrier. My skin has been fairly dehydrated the past few months, so I really look forward to using this.
Next we have the Pai Skincare Echium and Argan Gentle Eye Cream. Very excited for this! I have tried a few Pai products (almost all of through Mapleblume, I think) and loved them. I’m currently using their Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil and am really enjoying it. This eye cream is said to be intensively hydrating (yes, please) and helps to improve the appearance of fine lines. My under eye area is forever dry, so hopefully this will make a difference!
The last skincare product in this month’s box is the Modicum Skincare Essential Cleanser. This is a refreshing, gentle foaming cleanser made with sea kelp. It has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant properties. It sounds like it will be great for when I’m having breakouts.
Onto makeup! There were two makeup products in this month’s box, both from Vapour Organic Beauty. First is the all natural Elixir Lip Gloss in the shade Trust, a pretty coral shade (Pantone Color of the Year, woopwoop!). These glosses are infused with antioxidants and rejuvenating botanicals to give you a healthy, plump pout. I haven’t tried any Vapour lip glosses before but I’m loving this shade, so I’m sure I’ll get a ton of use out of it.
Last we have the thing I’m most excited about: a Vapour Mini Aura Multi Use Stick in the shade Spark. It’s a sheer peachy pink (my favorite) that you can use on your lips, cheeks and eyes. This melts right into the skin and looks so pretty- I’ve already used it a few times and can tell it’s definitely going to be a staple for me in the warmer months. It doesn’t feel gross and dry on the lips like some multi sticks tend to. I also really appreciate that this is a mini because I like actually being able to use up makeup products and this makes it a bit more possible, haha.
The May 2019 Mapleblume box is valued at $265.20CAD and is only $120CAD to subscribe to (or $130CAD for a one-time purchase). Mapleblume is the BEST clean beauty subscription box out there. Seriously though- they just won Best Splurge-Worthy Box from A Year Of Boxes, so you know it’s for real. The May box is still available, so grab it quick before it’s gone!
