Pearlesque Box | July 2017 LXMI

Pearlesque Box July 2017 LXMI (4)::: press sample :::

It feels necessary to start with all the happys- Happy (belated) Canada Day and a Happy (upcoming) Independence Day depending on where you call home! Celebrating July is even better if you're a skincare lover, as the July Pearlesque Box is especially great, featuring LXMI and their two star products.


If you missed my last Pearlesque Box posts and are wondering what it's all about, I suggest checking one out (here). It features a bit more info as to what you can expect with a Pearlesque Box subscription (like only organic, and natural products, and a focus on full size products- no wimpy samples) If you're ready...

"Leila Janah founded LXMI (pronounced luxe-me) after a chance discovery of Nilotica, LXMI's signature ingredient, at a market in Uganda. She was astounded by the rare butter's ability to transform her moisture-deprived skin from lackluster to luminous. Once she learned that she could help marginalized East African women find dignified work through the wild harvesting, production, and exportation of Nilotica, she knew she had to change her life to share her new skincare secret with the world. But she didn't stop there. She went the extra mile(s) to source to source Nilotica Reserve, now LXMI's exclusive form of the butter, from the highest grade nuts in the most pristine areas of the Nile River Valley. Nilotica Reserve's characteristics are sky-high essential fatty acids (+25% that of traditional Shea Butter), natural vitamin crystals that dissolve on skin, and impact sourcing techniques to ensure that LXMI producers are always paid living wages for their efforts."

Pearlesque Box July 2017 LXMI  Pure Nilotic MeltLXMI Pure Nilotic Melt 30 g $48 USD

The main product in from LXMI is the Pure Nilotica Melt. The black and copper pot is home to a luxurious blam-to-oil that is just as the name implies, pure organic Nilotica. The balm can be used just about anywhere that needs a moisture boost- eyes, lips, face (recommended as an overnight mask.) The balm is scooped out of the pot with the included spatula and massaged with the copper end. I love that the copper stays cool on skin and makes for a soothing effect when used around the eyes. For an oil product, the balm absorbs quite quickly and leave skin feeling petal soft within moments of use.  

Pearlesque Box July 2017 LXMI Creme Du NilLXMI Creme du Nil 36 ml $58 USD

Where the Pure Nilotic Melt works as a more intense hydrator, the Creme du Nil has a more lightweight formula. Nilotica Reserve is still the main ingredient, but hibiscus flower acids (an exfoliator) and Ugandan vanilla (a skin preserver) join in to hydrate, smooth, brighten, and improve skin texture. I just got my Pearlesque Box, so I haven't had much time with this, but the first use of this cream has my affections. The light texture absorbs easily leaving the smoothest feeling skin and an isntantly hydrated feel.

Overall, products I'm really looking forward to using- I think I'm going to be huge fans of both products. I used the melt on my eyes last night and am so impressed at how my skin feels. I love that Pearlesque Box aids in discovering something you may have otherwise never found. A monthly subscription to Pearlesque Box will set you back $39.95 (free shipping within the USA, international shipping is an additional fee.)
