August 2021

August Detox Box featuring Huygens

August’s Detox Box features 3 products from Huygens, with an incredible value of $123 for only $58.95 with a monthly commitment.

It brings a new brand on the horizon for TOG readers, Huygens, an organic French personal care brand with a bespoke approach to product formulation that utilizes pure essential oils for effective and sustainable results.

Let’s dive into what’s inside the box:

Hyaluronic Acid Concentrate, 30ml | $44 USD – This lightweight, gel-like formula instantly absorbs into the skin and deeply hydrates. It’s ideal for all skin types in need of a moisture boost.

Elixir Night Oil, 30ml | $44 USD – A blend of super oils —including coconut, argan, sweet almond, and jojoba—for an ultra-glowy morning skin. Use a few drops on your skin after the hyaluronic acid treatment.

Eye Contour Creme, 15ml | $35 USD – This eye cream is perfect to depuff your under eyes and fight dark circles. It uses a mix of cucumber extract and avocado oil to restore bright, supple-looking skin.

Boxwalla:  “Confessions of a Daffodil”

August’s Boxwalla is themed “Confessions of a Daffodil” and features two full-size products from the cult-favorite British brand Votary. This is a $254 value for $49.95.

Boxwalla ends the summer season with Votary – a fresh skincare brand founded by a celebrity makeup artist, Arabella Preston and entrepreneur extraordinaire Charlotte Semler, with the promise to create high-performance, plant-powered skincare that helps skin texture and provides a natural glow. Their products transform your skin with natural ingredients like jojoba oil, avocado oil as well as salicylic acid and retinol.

Here’s what’s inside:

Intense Overnight Mask – Rosehip and Hyaluronic, 50mL | $136 – Made in a base of hydrating Aloe with Narcissus/Daffodil extract and Camu Camu to brighten, Quinoa seed extract helps stimulate collagen synthesis and more. Made to be used as an overnight treatment to smooth fine lines and keep skin young. A must-have in your evening routine!

 Brightening Hyaluronic Serum, 50 mL | $118 – Secret potion to restore radiance to the skin, even skin tone and illuminate your skin. It can be used after cleansing and misting, before applying facial oil.

Beauty Heroes featuring Ingredients

August’s Beauty Heroes is featuring Ingredients! This $128 value is available as a one-time purchase for $58.95 or you can get it as low as $37.96 with a one-year subscription. 

This is my first time trying Ingredients although I’ve seen them on the scene over the past year or so. But Ingredients co-founders Myriam and Eric Malka are not new to the beauty scene—also being behind the brand Art of Shaving. Love their radical “transparency first” approach to beauty which we see plain as day with ingredients’ listing their ingredients on the front of the label instead of the back. Myriam and Eric create their line Ingredients out of their own lab and work with a small network of suppliers to source ingredients—controlling and overseeing their production from start to finish.

Here’s what’s inside:

Hero product: Plant Water Mist, 100mL | $38 – My favorite discovery this month is Ingredient’s Plant Water Mist. Besides the fact that this mist is created with 96% organic floral waters and 4% probiotics, it’s got a delivery system that is rocking my world. Ingredients uses a non-hazardous aerosol technology to deliver a fresh, fine, tantalizing mist. And now I’m misting everything…my body, my face…my legs post-shave…#cantstopwontstop

Sidekick one: Face Serum, 40mL | $48 – This is an aloe vera-based gel-serum packed with phytonutrients and amino acids. Use this under your daily and/or evening face moisturizer to hydrate, calm and treat the skin.

Sidekick two: Body Oil, 100mL | $42 – I’m a sucker for jojoba and that is the main ingredient here in this body oil (jojoba is a boss at moisturizing and I love how it sinks in so well). Along with baobab oil, it also has copaiba oil which is charged with soothing muscles and joint pain as well. And they nailed the scent with their combo of lavender, vanilla, rosemary and orange essential oil.
