Mapleblume Review - December 2016 - Canadian Luxury Beauty Box

This box was provided complimentary for review.
 

What is it? Mapleblume
How Much? $120 every 2 month. Includes shipping. Prices in Canadian dollars.
What's in it?
At least five full-size or deluxe sample-size products inside

Mapleblume is luxury beauty box, sending a minimum of five premium brand skincare and cosmetic products every other month. Mapleblume is based in Canada and December 2016 is their first box! According to the founders, "Mapleblume was born out of a desire to create something beautiful". 

We saw that there was a void in the Canadian subscription box market for luxury brand skincare and cosmetic products that are high in quality and that provide more than just sample sized amounts. Through research and networking, we discovered some of the finest brands with the purest ingredients that we wanted to share with other people.

Mapleblume ensures that every box contains a balance of skincare and cosmetic products. They only include products containing the highest quality ingredients that are beauty-enhancing and skin-nourishing. Mapleblume tests every product and only includes products they absolutely love. They also guarantee that the value of every box will be significantly more than the retail cost of the products.

Inside the cardboard mailing box we have a pale yellow gift box with gold foil stamping. 

The box has a clam-shell opening with a magnetic closure. The inner wrapping is branded to match and is wrapped with care. This box screams luxury already!

The product card includes item detail and instructions.

First look!

LINNE Repair Face Oil (1oz full size, $72)
This luxe facial oil contains rosehip oil, which is all the rage in skincare right now. Rosehip oil is high in Vitamin C and anti-oxidants and will help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and scars and help even skin pigmentation.

Pure Anada Petal Perfect Natural Lipstick in Hibiscus ($14)
This is a moisture-rich lipstick shea butter, jojoba oil, and rosehip oil. Pure Adana is a Canadian company, based in Manitoba!

Organic Nation Hydration Day Cream ($28)
This light moisturizer is non-greasy and feels great on the skin. It smells faintly of roses and works great under makeup. According to the website, it's "steeped in plant stem cell science and nourishing plant emollients". 

Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in I Love My #Selfie ($15)
Trust Fund beauty produces natural, vegan, and cruelty-free beauty products. This bold red is perfect for the holidays!

FitGlow Beauty Mineral Blush in Pure ($35)
This is a silky pressed mineral powder blush in a pretty, natural shade. It's oil absorbing and moisture balanced so it's suitable for acne prone and mature skin.

Herbivore Pink Clay Exfoliating Mask ($22)
This mask is made with floral botanicals and pink clay. Ad a few drops of water to 1 tbsp, and mix into a paste. It's suitable for all skin types.

The box included a couple little extras - a discount code for Linne Botanicals and a little maple sugar candy!

The December 2016 box from Mapleblume included six items, valued at $186 US, which is around $250 Canadian. This box costs $120 Canadian every two months, or $140 for one-time-purchase. Shipping is always included! It truly is a luxury experience, from the box and packaging to the products and extras. It's the first box of its kind in Canada. The price point won't be for everyone, but for those looking for special and luxurious skincare and cosmetics, this is worth checking out.

  1. Some great things and sizes of products. Really interested in that face oil in particular.

    1. I've been using a different brand of rosehip oil nightly and I like it quite a bit. It takes some getting used to but my skin is very soft and moisturized. It's been great during this cold snap.

  2. Looks nice but definitely out of my price range for a subscription box!

    1. It's definitely in the "luxury" column. I might treat my mom to one box for her birthday next year though.
