Mapleblume February Beauty Box

There’s a new premium beauty subscription service in town (well in Canada for now and available to the US this April) and it’s a good one! Meet Mapleblume*, a bi-monthly subscription service offering a grand selection of luxury skin care and cosmetics, with a nod to clean and green. Because Mapleblume wants to give you a good feel for a product, you can always expect up to five full-sized or deluxe samples (no one-time use samples here). Each box is seriously loaded to the brim with beauty products from some top-notch brands (check out their December box here). The lovely ladies behind Mapleblume subscribe to a tried-and-true philosophy by only including products that they truly adore.

Quarterly Co. and ‘No More Dirty Looks’

‘No More Dirty Looks’ teamed up with Quartely Co. to bring you the “prettiest and most effective clean products on the market.” Quarterly Co. works along with influential contributors to curate a box of products that subscribers can receive quarterly. When I heard that the lovely ladies from the popular beauty and health blog “No More Dirty Looks” were providing such a service, I signed up right away!


For $25 you receive four very generous samples of clean beauty products from some of the best natural and organic brands. What makes this sampling service different from others, is not only the size of the samples, but that I am honestly pleased with every item I received. I cannot wait to put them all to great use.


What I got:

  • W3ll People Universalist 2 Multi-use Color Pot
  • One Love Organics Brand New Day
  • One Love Organics Morning Glory
  • Vivare Exfoliating Skin Cloth


The Universalist 2 from W3ll People is a Multi purpose cream color. This marvelous luminizer was chosen because it “brightens up your face subtly” without any “unwanted sparkle or glitter.” This product does exactly that and is ‘chock-full’ of natural and beneficial ingredients. It reminds me very much of my two other favorite highlighter, the RMS Living Luminizer and Jemma Kidd All Over Radiance Creme. I will definitely be posting more about this one. It’s an absolutely gorgeous product!


A brand new to me is One Love Organics. Their Brand New Day is a powder that can be combined with water or other ingredients to create an exfoliating treatment or masque. It contains pineapple enzymes to help with exfoliation. I’m definitely looking forward to using this.


Another product from One Love Organics, Morning Glory is a Brightening Complexion Booster. This serum can be applied morning, midday, or night to “wake up your skin’s natural radiance.”


This special texurized Exfoliating Cloth from Vivare stimulates skin and blood circulation. This cloth is incredibly abrasive and the ladies from “No More Dirty Looks” have you forwarned. While I think some might be none-to-thrilled with this addition, I am quite delighted to use it. I use exfoliating gloves regularly and this cloth seems wonderful at getting at hard to reach places. I have yet to try it and I will certainly use a light hand.
