Our September / October Mom box was a great mix of practical and pampering items. On the pampering side, our Mom Box subscribers enjoyed a couple of green beauty luxuries, including an Ecco Bella eyeliner, Silk Therapeutics serum and moisturizer, Lasting Smiles Cares lip balm and Ellovi body butter. Our moms also discovered a cute new way to cut down on paper towel waste with the People Towel, and a couple of tasty snacks to keep the fam happy (Bitsys Brainfood and Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts). Read on to learn more about these great products and discounts!
Sometimes your skin just needs a quick pick-me-up. Just like you take your morning coffee or tea, your skin will thank you when you massage this vitamin-c serum into your face. Watch fine lines plump up and dark spots disappear as your skin soaks up this nourishing formula. You will love the feel on your skin – and the results!
The key to Silk Therapeutics’ beautifying products is right in the name — the company uses real silk in their formulas, which lets in oxygen while also forming a barrier against damaging elements. Silk replaces the silicones and harsh chemical additives used in other beauty products. In the Nourishing Moisturizer, silk is blended with hyaluronic acid and antioxidants to diminish signs of aging. In the Intensive C Serum, silk boosts the moisture-retaining properties, filling in lines and evening skin tone. Use these products daily and your skin will thank you with its radiance.

Many of Ellovi’s products double, triple, and quadruple as other effective solutions, and their Butter Minis are no different. Ellovi understands that your skin is like a sponge, and that adverse environments can be just as damaging to our bodies as what we put in them. The body butters are also sunscreens, makeup removers, and face moisturizers. You will love Ellovi’s natural formulations, and will feel the difference in your baby-soft skin.
