May Box Details ($125 total value)

Here’s a look at what’s in the box:

TAΪLA Muhka Botanical Cleanser ($65)

“This botanically enriched oil cleanser and makeup remover preserves moisture without stripping skin. Removing dirt, excess oil and stubborn makeup — this gently exfoliating face wash leaves skin soft and purified. Free of harsh sulfates, the cleanser transforms into a purifying milk that rinses clean.”

This sounds like a lovey cleanser that is great for all skin types. I’m always intrigued by oil based cleansers, but don’t often use them. I like that this one is an oil to milk type so it sounds easier to wash off and remove. That will make it more enticing to try for sure. It smells grounding and sweetly floral, I’m not sure exactly how to describe the scent, but I like it. The aroma and skin purifying benefits make this one super intriguing to use.

TAΪLA Nava Jungol Detoxifying Jungle Mask ($72)

“This revitalizing face mask helps to brighten and exfoliate to instantly infuse skin with radiance. A deep cleansing, purifying and resurfacing facial that decongests pores, removes dead cells and refines skin. This treatment is crafted with a blend of ayurvedic botanicals that contain active enzymes and nourishing flora for skin that is healthy and renewed.”

I really love face masks so I’m glad this is one of the products they included from their line. They say that masks like these are revered in Ayurveda for their nourishing benefits. I love knowing a bit of the connection to the heritage that this mask derives from. It sounds amazing for skin to balance and detox, while providing restoring benefits too. I really love the crisp and energizing aroma of this, very herbal and a hint spicy-sweet too. Can’t wait to try it out!

TAΪLA Vayu Illuminating Toning Mist ($25)

“A skin-boosting antioxidant mist that hydrates, calms and purifies skin with potent plant actives rooted in Ayurveda. An essential step in your regimen, this treatment preps and rebalances the skin to enhance the performance of any face oil, serum or moisturizer. Spritz to instantly refresh throughout the day or over makeup as a setting spray.”

A toner is a must for any skincare routine so it’s great that they included one to use following the other two products. It sounds perfect for balancing and calming the skin. It smells light and subtly floral.

Final Thoughts

I’m always happy to discover a new brand of skincare that I’ve not heard of before, and Laurel & Reed box does a great job introducing those to me with such lovely products. From the packing and benefits to the ingredients and aromas, TAΪLA skincare products are so enticing and sound like they will nourish and treat my skin. I love that the brand creates all products with roots in Ayurveda to harness the power of plants to work with the skins needs. It’s so cool that they even include each product’s tie to India on their website. I’m so intrigued to look more into this brand, it’s mission and of course to try out these fantastic products!
