box intimate wipes

A rose is a rose is a rose...


Drum roll everyone... We've changed our name! From now on, please call us "Coochie Wipey."

Ok, we're kidding.  We went in the other direction and are now BOX Naturals.  It just made more sense since we are expanding in a direction beyond the "intimate" and because, well, gosh darnit, too many of you said the word "intimate" was up there with "moist."

As always, we are dedicated to bringing you products that are all natural and free of synthetic fragrances.  That will never change.


Our Up in the Air Beauty Routine

One of our team members is constantly traveling. Cross country flights, long haul flights, you name it! Still, every time she's in the office, her skin is glowing (it's absolutely LUMINOUS). After a little prodding, she finally divulged her beauty secret - a top to bottom regimen she learned from renowned make up artist Lisa Eldridge.  

Lisa has an amazing tutorial that's perfect for long flights. Yes, you will get looks from your fellow passengers, but just think about what havoc that recycled cabin air is wreaking on your skin and it will be easier to ignore the sidelong glances and occasional pointed finger/giggles.  

Some of the ridiculous(ly transformative and amazing) things she recommends: 

  1. Slather hydrating cream on your hair
  2. Take off ALL make up
  3. Use a toner with essential oils
  4. Put a mask on (not the scary green kind, a clear one, preferably - see tutorial for all product recommendations)
  5. Hydrate back of hands
  6. Go to sleep with a lavender filled eye mask...snoooooze....

And depending on how long your flight is, repeat. There's one thing we'd add to that – Box Intimates wipes (of course). After sitting for hours and hours, doesn't every part of your body need a little freshening up?

This routine definitely works, but even doing part of it is better than not doing a thing. Try it, and instead of arriving feeling like you need a nap and a shower, you'll be ready to hit the town.

Memorial Day is almost here, and that means one thing and one thing only:  SUMMER!  Get a jump start and start packing your beach bag now.  

Protect Your Assets: 
A Wide Brim Hat:  We're just going to say it:  We are sick of fedoras! Plus, they really don't offer much in the skin protection department anyway! Love the glamour of this Melissa Odabash hat.

Organic Sunblock:  Coola's organic, antioxidant enriched, paraben-free facial sunblock is the best organic sunblock we've tried.

Gear and Stuff:
The Perfect Towel:  Thin, pretty, and colorful.  No, we're not talking about you, little darlings, we're talking about these amazing fouta's because there is NOTHING worse than a too small towel at the beach!

The Modern Day Boom Box: How cute is this?! Retro with modern functionality.  Little speakers that conceal your iPhone keeps them protected from the surf and sand.  

Water Bottle:  Ok, so a water bottle might not seem all that interesting to you, but we LOVE this distressed gold water bottle by SIGG.  And the more banged up it gets, the better it looks...

Beachy Hair Spray:  This spray from The Gnarly Whale (I know, have to buy it just for the name) is all natural and vegan. And makes your hair smell like a $30 Pina Colada.

Cover up: Can't beat white on tan.  Romantic, gauzy, comfy.  Perfect way to lounge around.

After the Sun Goes Down:
Luxe Oil:  Bobbi Brown's Beach Body Oil reminds us of the ocean even when we're back home.  Obviously, don't use during sun's peak hours, but lather on after the sun has gone down to really show off your tan!

A Cozy Sweatshirt:  There is nothing comfier than a cute sweatshirt and cut off jeans to wear to a beach bonfire party. 

Wipes Wipes Wipes:  Didn't think we would forget about wipes on our blog, did ya?  In addition to tossing some BOX Intimate Wipes in your bag (gotta get rid of the salt, sand, other pesky things that prevent you from feeling your freshest), consider these self tanning wipes to accentuate your glow.
