[Curated Box] Esthoria Box July 2016 (Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask, Regenerating Cleanser, Corpa Flora Beaute Divine)


I oftentimes feel that I'm "over-subscribed" to Green Beauty Boxes what with the two to four that I have coming in on the monthly.  At the same time, I know that these boxes are worth the subscription when I cannot seem to bring myself to cancel them.  Esthoria Box is my newest subscription and it's one that I am coming to full appreciate.  The great thing about Esthoria Box is that they allow you to choose one of the items within their selection and they only send you products bimonthly.  That way, your beauty cabinet isn't over cluttered.  What I liked about this months selection was that they focused skincare instead of the color cosmetics that were featured in last month's box. Tata Harper is another great, luxe brand in the green beauty realm that I've wanted to try further so I was extremely excited about this months picks.  Let's just say that I was thoroughly impressed with both of the items featured in the box (not to mention that there was an extra award-winning deluxe sample included).

Experience: 
I was pleasantly surprised by this cleanser.  I know that this has won the Allure Best of Beauty 2015 award but I hadn't expected to be so pleased with a cleanser since I've tested so many cleansers up to this point.  This cleanser has been able to both fully cleanse, soften, and moisturize my skin in one go.  I definitely am able to stand by their claims that this is a multi-functional cleanser.  After using this for a week or so, my skin felt incredibly soft and even-toned.  I truly believe that pairing this with the Resurfacing Mask that I picked with this month's box has helped with the texture and tone of my skin within just the week or so that I've been using them. This cleanser is anything but basic, although, I wouldn't have purchased this by itself without the discount that this box was able to afford me.  The price of the cleanser is just a bit out of my price range at this moment, thus I'm very grateful to this box for allowing me to try out such a luxe line.

Experience:
To be honest, I was skeptical about this product.  On one hand, this product could become one of my favorite new masks since resurfacing masks usually are among some of my favorites.  On the other hand, this could be like so many masks that I've tried that promised cell renewal but only delivered a slow painful burn to my sensitive skin.  Thankfully, this was the former!  I'm now officially obsessed with the Resurfacing Mask along with the rest of my green beauty babes.  This mask is so simple and easy in application which is exactly how I prefer my masks.  I'm able to scoop this peachy gel out of the tub with a spatula and apply a medium layer onto my skin with ease.  This doesn't cause any mess and stays put for the entire 20-30 minutes that I have this on. This dries to a thin, matte texture after about 5-10 minutes.  I'm left with smooth and soft skin after using this mask.  I've also found that using this mask every other day for a week has been beneficial to the overall even skin tone of my skin. My only qualm is that it costs $58 for the item by itself without its inclusion in this box and it is only 1 fl. oz.. I like this mask so much that I find that I'm going though it quite quickly and repurchasing this mask is also not within my budget!

Corpa Flora Beaute Divine Cleanser

Ingredients:
Helianthus Annuus(Sunflower) Seed Oil *, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Camellia Sinensis (Camellia) Seed Oil*, Polyglyceryl-4 Oleate**, Rosa Canina (Rosehip) Fruit Extract* Cupressus Sempervirens (Cypress) Oil,* Backhousia Citriodora (Lemon Myrtle) Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract (and) Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*. * Organic 74.5% ** PEG-free emulsifier ECOCERT certified

Experience:
This was a pleasant surprise to receive in my Esthoria Box.  Ever since I had tried the One Love Organics Vitamin B Enzyme Cleanser, I've been on the lookout for another oil cleanser that I enjoyed.  To this day, I've had no luck in that department.  I thought that this product would go into the junkyard of abandoned samples of oil cleansers as well.  Thankfully, this delivered.  I've got hormonal acne and this cleanser did not irritate it at all.  The verdict is still out on whether this helps with my hormonal acne as I've only used this a few times to date, however, Corpa Flora claims that this does help with that type of acne.  I've also not yet tried removing makeup with this product, however, Corpa Flora also claims that this is perfectly capable of removing waterproof makeup such as mascara.  I did enjoy that this turned into a milky emulsion after application and that the removal process was easy!

I am honestly so happy that I was able to experience this line of luxe, effective green beauty with the help of Esthoria Box because I truly didn't know when I would actually fork out the full-priced sum for both products.

These boxes are going fast, but I've got your back with a deal for $5 off your first box (this box) with them by entering the code CLEANCURATOR5 at checkout (by June 30th) !
