This month we are introduced to Raw Is Everything.

RAW IS EVERYTHING founder Jessica Assaf has been a beauty activist for the past ten years advocating for safer products and stricter regulations protecting our health. She is on a lifelong mission to educate consumers about the importance of product safety and discover the best safe and effective products. Her story has been featured in “The Young Activist’s Guide to Building a Green Movement and Changing the World,” and the documentary, “The Human Experiment.” Jessica started the clean beauty blog, Beauty Lies Truth, with Alexis Krauss to build a movement of young women passionate about beauty and health. RAW IS EVERYTHING is her contribution to the movement.

RAW IS EVERYTHING is the first line of single-ingredient skincare. Jessica searched the globe to find the highest quality and most powerful ingredients extracted from plants that stand alone. She found oils that have been ancient beauty secrets for centuries but have never been available to the modern consumer in their purest form. RAW IS Everything’s four premier facial oils are cold pressed, unrefined, and sourced sustainably from communities around the world. The products are shielded in custom-coated dark glass to protect the oils against sun and heat damage. It is RAW’s mission to help women and men find the best single-ingredients for their skin.

 

 

Facial Moisturizer ~ Full Size 1 fl oz $55

Main ingredient: 100% unrefined, cold pressed, wild-crafted passionfruit seed oil. Native to the Amazon and extracted from the seeds of the passionfruit, this oil has been used for centuries as a powerful moisturizing emollient. It moisturizes, replenishes and balances.

Antioxidant Treatment ~ Full Size 5fl oz $45

Main ingredient: 100% unrefined, cold pressed, sustain-ably farmed raspberry seed oil. Native to Europe, this antioxidant oil has been used as a natural remedy for centuries by the civilizations of Greece, Rome and Anatolia to protect skin against free radicals caused by exposure to sunlight and environmental toxins.

**The card explains that exposure to light and heat will quickly damage the oils so their bottles are uniquely coated to prevent exposure to visible and ultraviolet spectrum of light. It’s also to minimize heat absorption. WOW!

I am already using both products. I’m not a fan of passionfruit, but the way my skin feels is changing my mind. It’s only been 3 days but I’m already fascinated with how smooth my cheeks and neck are. Why have I not heard about this company before!

Is anyone else getting this box? Have you used these products? What are your results so far?

postheadericon Pearlesque Box® April 2016 ~ oSea Malibu!

This is my favorite time of the uhh month. I stalk my mail carrier when I know my Pearlesque Box® is on the way!

Pearlesque Box® is a luxe monthly subscription box that focuses on natural beauty products that are high quality, non-toxic, organic, and contain all natural ingredients.

WHY YOU SHOULD CARE!

Only about 10% of the 10,000 chemicals commonly found in personal care products have safety data.

The US has NOT passed a federal law to regulate the ingredients used in personal care products since 1938.

The European Union has spent the past two decades banning or restricting more than 1,300 ingredients, the US has only banned 11.

20% of personal-care products that contain at least one chemical linked to cancer.

Our mission is to bring you non-toxic and safe products!

PRICE: $39.95 per month. Auto renews. Shipping is free in the US

COUPON: Use DENISE15 to get 15% off your first box! :-)

PRODUCTS: Each month, there will be a minimum of 1-2 full-size products and 1-3 travel-size products from around the world. The box may include natural skincare and/or body care. One brand will be featured each month.

 

 

April brings us “Love from the Sea to You! Malibu” featuring products from Osea Malibu.

I visited their website to get more insight because there is only so much you can put on a post card. I am beyond happy to share that Osea Malibu is free of animal by-products, gmos, gluten, nanomaterials, parabens, PEG compounds, petrochemicals, petroleum, phthalates, sulfates, synthetic color, and synthetic fragrances. There’s even more on the list -found on their site-  such as being free of propylene glycol.  Before I continue I wanted to share a wonderful quote that Osea had on their website.

When I got my box I realized it was heavy. It’s comforting because it tells me I’m not going to get a box full of tiny one use samples. Those subscriptions are slowly moving off my radar. So this is what I got after going crazy with the bubble wrap. I’m publicly apologizing to my cats. Meowmie is sorry she got carried away popping bubbles.

Each bottle (totally going to save and reuse these) was carefully wrapped.

ATMOSPHERE PROTECTION CREAM  1ml Full Size, $48

SKIN TYPES: Normal, Dry, Combo, Sensitive. Scent: Fresh and clean.

A lightweight moisturizer that protects skin from dehydration and damage from environmental aggressors. The super emollient algae base ensures instantaneous absorption while the advanced blend of dermal proteins increases elasticity and leaves a matte, silky finish. An amazing, invisible base for makeup application.

The natural emollient properties of seaweed give this cream a uniquely light and silky texture. Vitamin E strengthens collagen and increases elasticity.

Directions: Apply day and night. For dryer skin types use Advanced Protection in the evening or apply Essential Hydrating Oil as a base. Can be blended with powder or liquid foundation for smoother makeup application. *I love how it absorbed quickly and I didn’t have to wait to apply other products.

OCEAN CLEANSER 60z Full Size, $42

Description: An OSEA classic, Ocean Cleanser is rich in minerals, algae, dermal proteins, vitamins, and mineral salts with a delightful natural fragrance. This multi-tasking hydrating formula effectively removes dirt and impurities, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and energized. Ocean Cleanser is free of chemical surfactants and great for easy makeup removal. pH balanced.

Red Algae is extremely high in microelements, proteins, vitamins, mineral salts and amino acids to gently cleanse the skin, allowing greater permeability without depleting the protective lipid barrier. Dermal proteins and amino acids stimulate collagen production and reduce effects of photo aging.

Directions: Use twice daily. Apply to damp skin in gentle, circular motions to remove dirt, oil and makeup. Rinse and follow with mineral mists, serum, and moisturizer. *I love the smell. It’s so refreshing and for lack of a better term, beachy!

SEA MINERALS MIST 1oz Travel Size, $16

Description: An ideal delivery system for healing nutrients and antioxidants, Sea Minerals promotes skin’s natural ability to absorb moisture and oxygenate. USDA certified organic Patagonian seaweed extracts and Dead Sea Crystals provide a thorough therapeutic mineral treatment. Helps restore mineral balance to sun-damaged skin and reduces redness, tightness and inflammation. A quick spritz helps seal makeup against humidity. Store in fridge for a refreshing after-sun elixir.

USDA Certified Organic Patagonian seaweed extracts and Dead Sea Crystals provide a therapeutic mineral treatment and help in the healing of various skin conditions.

Directions: Spray liberally onto skin after cleansing in the morning and at night to tone and mineralize skin or throughout the day as desired for an extra antioxidant boost. Use more frequently on sun-damaged skin to soothe & reduce inflammation. May also be used on top of makeup to seal against humidity. *I just know I’m going to use this up this summer. It’s so cooling and feels fabulous on my face!

This box is another win for me! Each box gets better and better and I am just amazing at all the wonderful products that Pearlesque founder Rochelle Truxal introduces us to. She is on to something and I foresee this box being around for a long time!

Now to listen to Malibu by Courtney love and Hole. I’ve had that song stuck in my head since I opened this box! 🙂

I paid for this box on my own and all opinions are mine. ~ Miz D
