Review: Nourish Beauty Box

**This post is an advertorial in collaboration with Nourish Beauty Box**

April's Nourish Beauty Box is filled with spring-inspired beauty products that are packed with natural, organic, and wild-crafted goodness! As always, the line-up consists of four, full-sized products from small, super innovative brands! 

The April Box is still available and retails for $45 USD. Each product within the box can also be purchased individually from NBB's online shop. Not to mention, a month-to-month subscription goes for $34.95 USD, with even greater discounts if you prepay for a 3 or 6-month subscription. There's free worldwide shipping too! Score!

The April Box has totally won my heart! It features products from Alma Botanicals, Seraphine Botanicals, Peony Cosmetics, and Nourish Beauty's very own collection!

April's Nourish Beauty Box featuring Alma Botanicals Hydrating Oil; Peony Botanicals A New Beginning - Pumpkin Pre-Cleanse Cream; Seraphine Botanicals Chia + Camellia Eyeshadow Palette;  Nourish Nails - Follow your Bliss

Alma Botanicals Hydrating Oil ($35 USD)

Alma Botanicals prides themselves on being the skin solution for all modern minimalists. I'm always on the lookout for multi-tasking products that will help simplify my routine and this oil is a workhorse! It's lightweight, fast-absorbing, and leaves my skin looking radiant and renewed. This oil can also be applied all over the body, in your hair, and in the bath. Made with the finest cold-pressed or steam distilled oils, this moisturizing oil is sure to make your skin luxuriously smooth for the upcoming summer months.

Peony Botanicals A New Beginning - Pumpkin Pre-Cleanse Cream ($36 USD)

This product is so intriguing! Designed to be used before your regular cleanser, this pumpkin-based pre-cleanse formula not only functions as an effective makeup remover, but also helps nourish lashes and hydrate the delicate eye area at the same time. It's also infused with pineapple extract and ginger root, yum! I should warn you, however, that the aroma is quite potent and may irritate you if you are sensitive to strong scents.

Seraphine Botanicals Chia + Camellia Eyeshadow Palette ($52 USD)

This palette is stunning!! The elegant, gold packaging is slim and compact. Combining both matte and shimmery hues, the formula of these shadows is infused with kaolin clay for long-lasting blendability, as well as Camellia and Chia seed oils to give you soft, smooth, pigmented payoff. Is there a more beautiful neutral palette? I don't think so!

Nourish Nails - Follow your Bliss ($12.50 USD)

This water-based nail polish in the shade Follow your Bliss is a pale, pistachio hue that's perfect for spring! It's also vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free, eco-friendly and formulated with natural ingredients.

Makeup of the Day - Featuring Brija Cosmetics

This post is an advertorial in collaboration with Brija Cosmetics*

Here is a quick makeup look featuring these amazing products from my first Brija Cosmetics haul! 

From Left to Right: Produce Guy Eye Shadow; Glen Coco Blush/Bronzer; Carnelian Glitter; Chai Cupcake Bronzer; Jungle Madness Blush; Hoola Hoop Bronzer; and Foiled Hearts Organic Lipstick

I am so impressed with the quality and affordability of these goodies! I love supporting small brands that constantly strive to improve and innovate!

What's also nice about Brija is that you can choose from different sizes. If you are unsure about a certain color or if it's a super vibrant hue that you know you won't use very often, I highly recommend picking up a mini jar to test it out!

Hoola Hoop Bronzer

This bronzer is gorgeous! The temperature of its hue is balanced beautifully, so it will look natural on a variety of skin tones! I use a fluffy brush to blend this weightless powder onto my temples, around my hairline, and lightly across the bridge of my nose for a healthy glow!

Left to Right: Chai Cupcake Bronzer, Jungle Madness Blush, and Hoola Hoop Bronzer

Jungle Madness Blush

This blush is insanely pigmented and blends with such ease! It is a glamorous, cool-toned pink that really gives life to the face. I apply this blush to the apples of my cheeks using the same powder brush that I use for bronzer. Because it has a satin finish, it also gives the cheeks dimension and provides for a refreshed look.

Moonrock Highlight

This neutral highlight will be your go-to! It has just the right amount of gold and copper to reflect the light naturally without looking like a glittery mess! 


Eye Shadows

Produce Guy

This matte turquoise is everything! One swipe and this gorgeous pigment glides on smoothly without any streaks. Adding a little water makes it easy to use these shadows as vibrant liners too!

Chai Cupcake Bronzer

Thank goodness there are no rules with makeup because this bronzer is a beautiful transition shade. The hue is a bit deeper than, Hoola Hoop, so it doesn't suit my fair complexion as a bronzer, but it's a great warm-toned neutral color that makes my blue eyes pop!

Carnelian Glitter

I love wearing copper shadows and this glitter is so saturated and fierce! It also stays in place surprisingly well! I used a damp shadow brush without any sort of adhesive and the fallout was super manageable.

Foiled Hearts Organic Lipstick

This luxuriously silky lipstick has the most stunning, cool-toned mauve hue! There are also silver and blue reflects that add a bit of dimension and interest to the lips. The formulation is unique and quite hydrating, but I find that the wear time is average. It can also look patchy if you don't blend it well, so I like to apply it straight from the tube and then pat it in with my finger before I run out the door!

I also received the Glen Coco Blush/Bronzer. It's a little too warm-toned for my face, but it blends effortlessly and I think that it will become a staple eye shadow for me this summer!

What are you favorites from Brija?
