Meet Megan

Asian-American, identical twin, California poppy, newlywed, public accountant, and professional wallflower. However, when you take that all away, I am a beauty enthusiast at heart

...and perhaps a bit of a shopping addict as well.

Call of the Wild: The Amenity Kit by Grown Alchemist

My new guilty pleasures — The Stell's natural beauty products & this gorgeous packaging, courtesy of Grown Alchemist.

They tell you not to judge a book by it's cover & yet I felt so compelled to pick up this Grown Alchemist Amenity Kit from The Stell because of its swoon-worthy minimalistic packaging.

I feel like at this point, Grown Alchemist's packaging is as iconic as Aesop's or Le Labo's. But it's safe to say that the packaging is not the only selling point. I've been using these products non-stop since they arrived & I'm absolutely hooked. Not only do the products smell amazing---think fresh & natural---they are also very effective. The kit is priced at $24 and contains minis of the Hydra-Repair Day Cream, Orange Peel & Vanilla Hand Cream, and Vanilla & Watermelon Lip Balm. 

The Hydra-Repair Day Cream and the Orange Peel & Vanilla Hand Cream have a similar texture. Both are very creamy & emolient, yet sink in very quickly. All that I'm left with is soft and hydrated skin, no greasy mess. The Vanilla and Watermelon Lip Balm, on the other hand, adds some flare to the kit. I am so enamored by the glossy shine it leaves on my lips. I don't even need lip gloss anymore. It basically kills two birds with one stone.

I will definitely be picking up the full-sizes of these products soon. 

Until next time, Megan.
