Laurel & Reed Review September 2022 – Final Thoughts

The September Laurel & Reed Box includes items from JOAQUINA BOTÁNICA which is a brand I am not familiar with so I did a little research. It is a line of powerfully clean and refreshingly vibrant skincare and their formulas are powered by clinically proven actives and luscious botanicals indigenous to Latin America, the world’s most biodiverse region. We received an essential cream, hydrating oil and mist which can be used over makeup to refresh your skin. I am most excited about the oil as it is something I use morning and night. The face oil alone retails for $92 on the JOAQUINA BOTÁNICA website which more than covers the cost of the box. I continue to be impressed by both the value of the box and the brands they feature. This is a must-have for skincare lovers!
