It’s official… December’s box is my most favorite Pearlesque Box yet (and that’s saying a lot, because I’ve found some great products through this box). Before I dive in, here’s what the Pearlesque Box is all about: it’s a monthly subscription box that sends a few (both full and travel-sized) non-toxic luxury skincare products from a specific brand each month.
For the featured brand this month, we have… SkinOwl! If you are at all active in the green beauty Instagram world, it’s highly likely you’ll have seen this brand around. SkinOwl’s founder, Annie Tevelin, struggled for years with her own skin issues and set out to create products to help her skin, but ended up creating products that have helped tons of people. Such a cool story behind the brand!
The SkinOwl Maqui Berry Beauty Drops PM ($85) have been circulating Instagram and I have been dying to try them out, so I was beyond stoked to see that they were the main product in the Pearlesque Box for December! So, do they live up to the hype?
Y-E-S. If I could add in a clap emoji here, I would. I’ve only been using these drops for about a week now and I’m officially claiming holy grail on these, seriously. Long story short, the SkinOwl Maqui Berry Beauty Drops PM is a facial oil packed full of antioxidants.
First of all, I love facial oils but hate how oily they are, simply because I usually end up with greasy hair the next morning from them moving all over my face. This facial oil absorbs so quickly and doesn’t slide around on top of the skin, so 1 star for that.
My skin feels SO soft and hydrated the next morning- and not in a “my skin feels soft but it’s time to put on some more moisturizer before it dries out again” kind of way. My skin gets so much hydration overnight from this facial oil that I don’t necessarily need to put anything on the next morning. Unless I’m going to put on makeup and head out for the day, I just let my skin be.
Last major selling point for me: this oil is working actual wonders for my skin. I’ve tried endless amounts of serums, oils and moisturizers in my time as a beauty blogger, and there are two areas on my face that are still always a problem for me. The first is the center of my forehead- it’s perpetually dry. Not in a super flaky way, but just kind of dry looking whenever I put foundation on. The second is this weird little horizontal line I have across the front of my nose. It showed up out of nowhere like four years ago and just never went away… I have no idea what it’s from, but it’s just this dry sort of line that lives on my nose.
Anyways, this facial oil has completely cleared up the forever-dry patch on my forehead (which is SO crazy to me after having tried everything!) and there has been significant progress on the weird line on my nose (which I just assumed I would have forever). I am honestly mind blown by this product and can’t wait to see how it transforms my skin in the weeks to come!
I’ve used this a handful of times and really like it. It’s too soon to say if it’s my most favorite ever, but thus far my eye skin is looking and feeling really nice and hydrated. I should also note that while the EYE+ included in this box is travel sized, it’s still huge for an eye cream and will last a good while!
If the Beauty Drops were the only thing in the box, I honestly would have been more than happy at this point. But because the Pearlesque Box is amazing, there’s one more product in there! Also included in December’s box is the SkinOwl EYE+ ($46 for a full size). This eye cream is a super light-weight gel formula packed full of super hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, aloe and cucumber, as well as a ton of other beautiful ingredients to help depuff and firm the eye skin.
The Pearlesque Box will run you $39.95 a month and is consistently worth every penny. This box is available until December 4th, so make sure to take advantage of this amazing deal on some incredible SkinOwl products ASAP!
