August Mapleblume: Naturally Beautiful

August 6, 2017

Mapleblume August Box

The August Mapleblume box is in the house!!! Let’s just say, this month’s box stole my heart. We are seeing SEVEN full-size products including some green beauty heavy hitters like ILIA, Suntegrity and Province Apothecary – and some new-to-me brands that are knocking it out of the park. Like how about Mabrook & Co’s mint + vanilla deodorant that is rocking my world!?!

Who is Mapleblume?

To catch you up, Mapleblume is the mother lode of all green beauty boxes. It’s a higher price point and a lot more product than most subscriptions offer. This bi-monthly subscription is based out of Canada and retails for just about $90 USD (depending on exchange rates) + $15 flat rate shipping. You can also skip the subscription and purchase a one-time box for about $103 USD. Mapleblume promises a minimum of 5 full-size, high-end nontoxic skincare and makeup products.

The August box’s theme is “Naturally Beautiful” – and it has a total value of $203 USD – CRAZY!!! And guess what, I’ve got your back with a coupon code – that’s what friends are for, right!?

Code: MAPLE10 will save you 10% off valid August 1st – August 31st.

 Here’s what’s included:

So many faves in this box, let’s start with the one I’ve used everyday since my box arrived…

Mabrook & Co_

The Clean Deodorant from Mabrook & Co.  – First of all, the scent profile of this deodorant had me at HELLO! Mint & Vanilla!? SO GOOD! Goes on smooth and easy. No chunks, pulling or tugging. Smells refreshing. Clean ingredients (coconut oil, arrowroot, beeswax, baking soda and essential oils) but best of all? IT WORKS! Now I’m drying to try their other scents, they also have a Eucalyptus & Spice + Lavender & Herb. TOTALLY recommend this deodorant! $16

ILIA Beauty Multi-Stick in Cheek to Cheek – Love it! Above all, the color is fantastic. It’s a playful coraly umber. I tend to gravitate more towards oranges than pinks though – so it’s like, perfect for me. This is a “mulit-stick” meaning you can wear it in multiple ways – mostly cheeks and lips but you could go wild and crazy and try it on your eyes too. Something about being able to visually pick up your lip color on cheeks just ties a look together. Clean base ingredients and ILIA uses a mix of natural minerals to tint this shade. Synthetics like Yellow 5 are listed on the ingredient list but they do not apply this this specific blend.  $34

Suntegrity Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen & Primer, Broad Spectrum SPF 30 – Huge fan of Suntegrity – I love everything I’ve tried from this line. BUT this is my first time trying their sunscreen/primer so I was wicked excited to see this included. Love having Suntegrity’s Sunscreen & Primer as an option because it goes on a little bit thicker than most daily SPFs and I would feel comfortable using this solo on a beach day. Goes on white but rubs into clear if you work it in enough. Not greasy. Smells AMAZING (all their stuff does – like oranges, I love it). Cruelty free and vegan. $45

Wildcraft BALANCE Toner in Geranium and Orange Blossom – Love the ingredients here: organic rose flower water, organic witch hazel, organic aloe vera juice and bergamot essential oil. So refreshing with a light earthy scent – and love the mister device they choose. The mist comes out smooth, even and generous. Apply before moisturizer and throughout the day. $16

Province Apothecary’s Calm Down Therapeutic Roll On – I got to meet Julie the founder of Province Apothecary this past year at Dallas Indie Beauty Expo and let me just say this, she knows her stuff! So excited to try her therapeutic roll-on. This formula uses a base of coconut and organic jojoba seed oils to carry essential oils like:

  • Mandarin to calm irritability, nervousness, stress and anxiety
  • Bergamot and frankincense to relax the mind and body
  • Neroli to relieve chronic anxiety and stress
  • Roman chamomile to calm and relieve irritation and irritability

You can put it on the back of your neck, at your temples, on your wrists or breath it in directly as needed throughout the day. Cruelty free and vegan. $32

The Moonstone Tonic for Lashes & Brows from Luna Nectar – This is a growth enhancement serum and my first time trying. I checked out Luna Nectar’s website and it says 95% of testers see increased length and thickness in 16 days! Wow! I mean who doesn’t want thicker, fuller lashes and brows?  I haven’t tried it yet because I want to get a good “before” pic and it’s just so hard shooting your own lashes – ha ha! Check out the ingredients below – they look pretty good! This product has a 3 month shelf-life after opened. Cruelty free + vegan. $75

Moonstone Tonic IngredientsAbbey Lane Farm Body Oil in Orange + Vanilla – This oil is so fun to have on hand. I love using it straight out of the shower. Love that it comes in glass with a glass dropper. Smells powdery and orangey. Assimilates well and the ingredients look great! It’s formulated with a base of apricot kernel and fractionated coconut as well as jojoba oil. $20

Mapleblume is making August look HOT!

I chatted with Mapleblume over the weekend and they only have a couple of the August boxes left – if you want in, score one here at the Mapleblume website and tell them I sent you!
