How is 2017 almost over? I was flipping through my planner and I am seriously baffled at the fact that the year has flown by... As time has a way of doing, yet another month is upon us, which luckily has its perks. Like what? A new Pearlesque Box! October features some amazing goodies from True Moringa, but you'll have to read on for the full rundown...


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...

"When co-founders Kwami and Emily first traveled to Ghana in 2012, they were struck by the incredible potential of the moringa tree. Known locally as the miracle tree for it's nutritional benefits (the leaves contain more iron than spinach, more calcium than milk, and more protein than yogurt, gram for gram), moringa was planted by NGOs throughout West Africa to prevent malnutrition. However, farmers had limited resources to care for and cultivate these trees, and without a connection to a global market, three was no way for farmers to grow moringa beyond the household scale and break the cycle of poverty.

So, Kwami and Emily took the unused part of the tree- the seeds- back to their labs at MIT, where they figured out how to cold-press them into a deeply moisturizing, anti-aging beauty oil that out performs argan, jojoba, and coconut. Today, they manage the first vertically integrated supply chain for moringa, connecting 2500 small farming families to conscious consumers by providing tools and training to their farmers to kick-start their moringa farms.They purchase seeds at a fair price, and cold-press their oils locally in Ghana, in a processing centre they designed and built by hand."

As mentioned, the October Pearlesque Box features three full-sized (!) True Moringa products. Up first, the luxe feeling True Moringa Alive Face, Hair & Body Oil. The multi-use oil features a blend of natural, organic oils (moringa & lemongrass essential oils) to hydrate and protect all skin types. The Alive version of the oil is lemongrass scented (I'm not a fan) but the brand also offers lavender, peppermint, neroli, and an unscented version to suit all. I love that this oil is so lightweight (it absorbs beautifully!) and that it will work well on even the finest hair.

True Moringa Rejuvenating Body Polish 114 g $34 USD

You may know that I'm a major scrub lover, so I was super pumped about the True Moringa Rejuvenating Body Polish. The deliciously scented (coffee!) scrub works to not only exfoliate skin but also revive dull, dry skin with its formula of Nicaraguan coffee beans, organic sugar, cold-pressed moringa, and neroili essential oil. The  scrub is just rough enough, but not harsh, and leaves skin feeling silky and smooth with no oily residue. Plus, it smells great. SO good!

True Moringa Ultra-Light Whipped Body Butter 57 g $32 USD

Last up, what just might be my new favourite thing... The True Moringa Ultra-Light Whipped Body Butter. Now, I've used and liked a lot of body butters, but there is just something about this that makes it love at first application. The thick, rich formula has a lightness (the whipping is to thank, I assume) that melts into skin and absorbs with ease leaving the softest, most hydrated skin. The blend of shea butter, moringa oil, almond oil, safflower seed oil, and vanilla has a soft, almost white chocolate-ish scent that only adds to this lovefest.

Pearlesque Box October 2017 $39.95 USD ($102 value)

Overall, products I'm already loving! Although I wish the oil had a different scent (lemongrass and I just don't get along). 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.) You're pretty much guaranteed to get much more for your money- this month's box has a value of $102 USD.
