Boxwalla: A Splendid Subscription Box!

Forget about Ipsy and Birchbox. There's a new subscription box in town called Boxwalla, and it blows its competition out of the water. I really should not even be saying "competition" here, as this is something completely outside the box (pun intended).

Boxwalla is the brainchild of a woman named Lavanya, a long-time reader of The Beauty Blogger.

A little bit of info:

Boxwalla is unique. This bi-monthly subscription service is available in four different categories: Beauty, Food, Book, and Film. Stick with beauty -- or be adventurous and switch it up a bit. I will be frank. I am not a huge fan of subscription services because I only use 1 or 2 of the items. Most of the items are tossed in the box and will only work for a few people. Boxwalla is different. You can tell that the selection process has been a true labor of love and that great consideration has been taken while curating the box.

Here is my box:

Here is what the Winter Evenings (December) box came with:

Lilikoi Living Bamboo Buff Face Wash-- I am using this after I remove my eye makeup and it is really quite amazing. It gently exfoliates the skin and leaves it feeling refreshed. Plus, it gives your skin a beautiful glow! $32 value

Aunt Nancy's Handmade Soap -- two half (but not little samples) bars of the AMAZING Carrot Goat's Milk (I swear by this on the face) and Orange Clove, which is such a gorgeous scent this time of year. If you are new to Nan's bars, you are definitely missing out. I have tried hundreds of bar soaps and NONE can match Nan's! $6 value

Hurraw Moon Balm Lip Balm -- This fabulous full size balm is blue chamomile and vanilla and is uber rich without being sticky. It contains super healthy ingredients such as Argan Oil, too.  $4.29 value

Soap and Paper Factory Winter Vanilla Hand Cream -- Abundant in shea butter, this is a really lovely, non-foody vanilla hand cream (features the aroma of sandalwood & bourbon, too) in absolutely gorgeous packaging. $10 value

Aura Candle Travel Tin -- I received the tin in Luscious, which is an intoxicating blend of sandalwood, tangerine, vanilla, amber & musk. $14 value

My Impressions:

It feels like having a personal shopper who has selected the box contents with great thought and care. High quality, safe ingredients are important to Boxwalla -- this is evident. Beautiful packaging is also a factor. Each item in the box is just exquisite and you can be confident that if you are sending this to someone else, that they will be very impressed!

Boxwalla boxes are very carefully curated and I am very excited to see how the company evolves! Does it cost more than some of the other boxes? Yes. However, in this case, you REALLY get what you pay for. How many times have you just been unable to use the bulk of what comes in your box? Not with this one. It's really something special.

Coming soon!

Boxwalla is sharing a sneak peek of the upcoming February box --

Beauty Box : Cleopatra.  When we think of Cleopatra's beauty ritual- we think of pampering ingredients like rose water and honey and goat milk. To this roster of decadence we add a few more of our favorite skin softening ingredients : Shea butter, cacoa butter, mango butter, buriti oil, sea buckthorn oil. A touch of cocoa essence, some amber. Sensual tuberose wax and orange flower absolute. What we've come up with is a box filled with some of our favorite luxuries for our skin. A box to channel your inner Cleopatra and pamper your skin and body including an indispensable piece of makeup that will nourish your skin while adding a natural flush of color.

Disclosure: I received my box at no cost. As always, this in no way influenced my review and all opinions are my own.
