Detox Box featuring Agent Nateur
Oh. My. GAH! I totally gasped when I opened this month’s Detox Box and saw Agent Nateur starting back at me. We are seeing a full size HOLI(OIL) valued at $120 and a 1.1 oz HOLI(STICK) No.3 DÉODORANT valued at $22. This is a $144 value for $55 – no commitment meaning you can buy this as a one-time box and not commit to a subscription. Get this month’s Detox Box here!
HOLI(OIL) – Supercharged with radiance-boosting ingredinets including Bulgarian rose and vitamin C, this face oil absorbs effortlessly to promote bright, even-toned and supple skin.
HOLI(STICK) No.3 DÉODORANT – Love that this comes in a stick and is easy to apply! A great way to see if this deodorant works for you – FOR LESS! I wrote all about my fave Agent Nateur deodorant here.
The May Petit Vour Box
I always get excited for the Petit Vour box. I love this box because it’s fun and you get to try a lot for a little. This is how it works: Set your profile so each box it tailored to your preferences. Every month, you’ll receive 4 products valued between $45-$60 (although this month is $71!!!). Enjoy a mix of makeup, hair care, body & skincare curated to match your beauty profile. This subscription is $18/month (cancel anytime) or $15/month if you pay up front for a year in full. Try it here!
May is breaking some records. We are seeing a $71 value of cruelty free beauty with one full size item and three deluxe size samples. Here they are:
- Suntegrity’s Impeccable Skin Tented Sunscreen ($7) – A great option for a tinted moisturizer with SPF if you are still looking for one. I talk more about my fave face moisturizers with SPF here!
- OSEA’s Atmosphere Protection Cream ($48) – A fantastic face moisturizer that doubles as a primer. Lightweight and reduces redness. I was so excited to see this included. I also LOVE their Ocean Cleanser by the way – it’s so good and it smells like lime Skittles!
- BKIND Skincare Sensitive Skin Face Scrub ($9) – A scrub made with cranberry seeds and dried hibiscus.
- Lavido Thera-Intensive Foot Cream ($7) – A moisturizing foot cream designed to sooth and repair itchy and damaged skin while eliminating odors.
Beauty Heroes featuring Ayuna
May is delivering two full size Ayuna products. A $252 value for $42.95 with a three month initial commitment. Here’s what’s included…
VELO 6-in-1 Suprastratum Protection ($156) – Say hello to Ayuna’s latest innovation. On the surface this looks like a tinted moisturizer but like Clark Kent, take off the glasses and we see a Superman of protection that guards against daily aggressors including pollution, oxidation, dehydration, light (includes zinc and titanium dioxide), dryness and the proliferation of bad bacteria. This wears beautifully and is an active addition to anyone’s skincare routine. Although fantastic year round, this is especially great for the upcoming summer months. A GEM.
THE FACIAL (Low) ($96) – This is the closest thing you will get to a professional resurfacing treatment. Made with a series of alpha amino acids including glutamic and succinic acids to support the feeling of healthy skin cell turnover. The consistency here is a milky liquid. And you can layer this day or night under moisturizer for smoother, softer skin. This dries matte so you may find that you need more moisturizer than usual.

Boxwalla limited edition featuring Sigil natural fragrances
Okay like I mentioned Boxwalla does not have a box this month BUT they are offering a limited edition and it’s all about Sigil. This is a $180 value for $84.95 – no subscription required.
Sigil has been around for years but they are back and better than ever with a FULL branding redesign and fragrance reformulation.
Sigil now has four scents: Anima Mundi, Prima Materia, Solutio and Amor Fati. Now, let’s get right down to it. Many clean fragrances/perfumes tend to smell a little too much like essential oils to me but not Sigil 2.0. These fragrance blends are complex, sophisticated, layered and alive. You may even find these fragrances evolve as you wear them throughout the day as they react with your chemistry.
These wear as high end fragrances but guys read my lips: they are all natural formulated with: essential oils, absolutes, CO2 extracts and house made tinctures all blended in a certified organic sugarcane alcohol.
This is how this limited edition works:
- Receive a flight of all four Sigil fragrance blends (a $50 value)
- Test, try, wear and pick a fave.
- Receive a full size of your fave sent directly from Sigil ($120 value)
I love this limited edition because it’s such an efficient way to try before committing. Fragrance is so personal and it can be hard to recommend online but I think you will find something you like here. And, you can rest easy knowing these formulas are truly clean.
I have two Sigil faves. First, Prima Materia. This is a play off of the Sigil OG Ground. It’s musky, smoky and sexy with a scent that goes straight to the belly. Formulated with Neroli, White Sage, Vetiver and Oakmoss, Prima Materia will draw you in and leave you wanting more. I love this on my husband and myself. I get asked a lot about cologne swaps for men – this is it ladies!
My other fave is Amor Fati which is on the other end of the fragrance spectrum IMO. It’s light, pretty and intriguing. Formulated with Bergamot, green pine needles, Palo Santo, and Resinous Galbanum. I love this as a daytime fragrance.
