May 25, 2017

Botanic + Terre May Box_

Botanic + Terre, formally Esthoria, is coming out of the gates with a fresh rebrand, brand new name and some stellar picks. This is Botanic + Terre’s debut box and I’ve gotta say, they killed it. It’s a “Spa Box” featuring Body Polish by Birchrose + Co, a Botanical Body Oil by Native Nectar Botanicals, BKIND’s Hand Balm and Province Apothecary’s Regenerating + Stimulating Exfoliator. Read on for my Botanic + Terre review.

Botanic + Terre MayHere’s the deal with Botanic + Terre. This box goes for $40.99/mo USD and promises 3-4 full size makeup, skincare, body care and/or haircare products. This Spa Box has a total value of $71.50 USD. With the rebrand they are coming back strong featuring products that are natural with a heavy focus on organic. The Spa Box is also 100% vegan. This subscription is delivered every two months and is shipped free to the US and Canada.

Birchrose + Co Body Polish in Ginger + Citrus Lavender $22

Organic Body Polish_

When I first opened this box, my eyes were immediately drawn to this beauty! Packaged in glass with a sleek logo, this body polish is made with: organic coconut oil, salt of the Dead Sea, organic cane sugar, organic dried lavender and a blend of organic and wild harvested essential oils. Love the organic and clean ingredients but what really stood out is the addition of this beautiful dried lavender. How gorgeous is this!?

And all of this before I even opened the polish! Not only does it look good, it smells good too. Like fresh sweet lemony, lavender and lets be honest, this is the perfect addition to my summer skincare battery. If you have never used a scrub on you feet – it is essential for summer! Wearing flip flops, sandals or open toed shoes can leave feet looking haggard – don’t let that be you! This scrub will help slough away dead skin while delivering a serious dose of moisture. Hooked after one use, you will wonder how you ever lived without it. Also great for elbows, knees, upper arms or any other rough bits.

*Safety first! Be careful not to fall in the tub because the oil will leave your feet slippery until you dry them off.

Province Apothecary’s Regenerating + Stimulating Exfoliator $16

Provinance Apothecary Exfoliator_I had the pleasure of meeting Province Apothecary founder Julie Clark at the Indie Beauty Expo Dallas two weeks ago. Julie is a certified holistic esthetician and aromatherapist and is committed to innovation, sustainability and small-batch skincare. I took home a few of her products from the show and I LOVE them so I was wicked excited to see her line represented here!

We get to try her Regenerating + Stimulating Exfoliator. This is a facial exfoliator that comes dry and you mix it with water, oil, honey or yogurt depending on your skin type or preference. I actually love that it is formulated dry because when no water is added, no preservative is necessary. LOVE. She uses oats to calm and soften, green tea to stimulate and rejuvenate + lavender to calm and heal. Check out the full ingredient list:

Organic oat flour, organic lentil flour, organic lavender, organic flax seed, organic violet flowers and leaves, organic green tea leaf.

BKIND Hand Balm $16

BKIND BalmThis is my first time trying anything by BKIND and I love a good hand balm so this was a win win for me. Made with shea butter, coconut oil, jojoba seed oil, grapefruit oil, pineapple fruit extract, tocopherol, grapefruit extract; this balm has a light powdery scent and BRINGS the moisture.

Native Nectar Botanical Body Oil $17.50

Okay so if you know anything about me at all you know I love a good body oil! This one caught my eye right away with a scent profile of rose + sandalwood + neroli – are you kidding me!? So good! I also love the addition of rose buds – can you see them? It just ups the elegance ante. This oil is packaged in glass with a drip top to keep too much oil from coming out.

You can use this as a daily moisturizer in lieu of your lotion. I love applying straight out of the bath when skin is warm and ready to receive moisture. This oil looks good, smells good and moisturizes. Here are the ingredients:

Apricot kernel oil, sweet almond oil, safflower seed oil, calendula extract, dried roses, rose otto oil, neroli oil, sandalwood oil, jojoba oil and coconut oil.
