This is a review of November 2018’s box.
Instead of the usual information card, they included this postcard. The information card is available on their website.
Seraphine Botanicals Contour Brush ($22) – This was the first beauty tool I’ve gotten in a Nourish Box. The brush’s bristles are firm but soft. I love the size of the brush. I don’t contour very often, but when I do I use a small brush like this to apply bronzer under my cheek bones.
Seraphine Botanicals Spinach Lash ($24) – I’ve grown to be very picky with my mascaras. This one is made with spinach leaf extract, caranuba wax, and vitamin E to nourish and strengthen lashes. It’s more lengthening to me than volumizing. It doesn’t clump and it lasts a few hours with no smudging.

Peony Cosmetics Magnesium Oil ($14) – The name “Magnesium Oil” interests me already. It is actually not an “oil”. It is a mixture of magnesium chloride and water. Since Magnesium is an important element in our body, the product might have some benefits like regulating blood pressure and help with sleep. This “magnesium oil” is infused with rose, lavender, ylang ylang, and orange oils. It has a watery texture and an herbal scent. I’m not big on oil products because I have combo to oily skin type, it absorbs quickly into my skin and gives it a matte feel. I love the pump bottle way better than the normal dropper packaging for an oil product.

Quinta Essentia Rupini Face Cream ($18) – They sent this as a replacement for the Alma Botanical Extracts Pure Plant Extracts Hydrating Oil, which they were apparently out of. This cream is made with several plant oils including avocado, sunflower, coconut, almond, geranium, and sage. All of those sound great! It has a thick creamy texture and a light herbal scent. My face feels a little bit oily when I first put it on, but after a few minutes it feels cool and refreshed. I like the vintage floral printed packaging.

Overall, I was a little surprised to see that no signature Nourish nail polish was included in this box, but I like that they started including beauty tools. I’m very happy that I got the face cream instead of the oil in the box. I loved most of the face or body oils they have included in the boxes so far, and I also understand that essential oils are more commonly used in oil products, but I would like to see more varieties of things (such as face creams and toners).
