Informational Card

I love how this month’s card has been designed!





Palmetto Derma Rejuvenating Antioxidant Mask This sounds very interesting!  Palmetto Derma Rejuvenating Antioxidant Mask (PDRAM) is a   and is made with 99% naturally derived ingredients of which 70% are organic.    This  detox clay mask will help remove dirt, debris and excess oil from your skin while brightening and smoothing with its powerful but gentle acids (glycolic, lactic, lipoic ).  It has a slew of anti-oxidant plant based ingredients to help combat free radicals, which damage and prematurely age your skin.  And finally, this product has hydrating and moisturizing ingredients as well, including aloe vera, hyaluronic acid, grapeseed oil, coconut oil, seabuckthorne oil, rosehip oil, jojoba oil and more.  It is free from parabens and phthalates and is vegan.  This does have “rose botanical essence”, but it is really far down the list and since this is a wash off mask, I am pretty sure that this will be okay.  I did do a patch test and other than normal tingling from the acids, I didn’t have an adverse reaction. 

PDRAM has a very light whipped texture, with little scrubby bits ~ could that be the cranberry fibers ~ and a little of this mask goes a long way.  Apply to a clean face in a thin layer, avoiding the eye area.  It is recommended to a patch test first and also have this as a nightly mask, not morning.   I actually used this and the first thing I notice is that the product has a slight scent to it, very herbal, like lemongrass.   It isn’t unpleasant and actually smells nice to me!   I applied the mask in a thin, even layer and I immediately felt the tingling sensation.    

I have oily but aging skin and also, since it is winter here and the air is drier, I did only leave it on for 15 minutes.  In the summer time, when it is more humid and moist, I probably would feel more comfortable leaving it on longer ~ but I feel that because the air is so dry, I didn’t want to over stimulate my skin.   I rinsed off the mask with warm water, and some parts of my skin was a little red, but that faded quickly.  I would recommend following up with a facial sheet mask or moisturizer ~ wait 10 minutes or so and then do either/both.  My skin does feel smoother and I noticed that my pores around my nose looked smaller!  I really like this mask a lot!!  It is small, under 2 oz, but unlike other “clay” masks, this one is applied thinly.   Do not slather it on in a thick layer as you do not need that much.  If you have sensitive or dry skin, I recommend leaving it on for  5 minutes and then working your way up slowly to leave it on longer. Always do a patch test first with these types of masks, because the acids might cause a bad reaction with your skin.    Use MASK20 for 20% off at Palmetto Derma.  Full Size 1.75 oz RV $64.00

Snapz Organic Apple Cheese Crisps Yum, I love a treat in my Kloverboxes!  These are made with dried organic apples and Gouda cheese puffs!  These are 100% natural, non-GMO and gluten free, while being high in protein and calcium plus 55 calories per bag (but it is a small bag).  This has 1 gram of fiber and 3 grams of protein, 10% of the RDA of calcium with only 2 grams of fat.   I really did like these ~ I am a huge fan of pairing apples with cheese as a snack, and this dried version is really convent to have on hand.  These are crispy and the cheese puffs are very light, but you can really taste the cheese ~ it is so much better than Cheetos!!  I do like these and I will have to see where I can purchase them locally ~ the bag is too small!  RV $1.00

Ingredients: organic apples, gouda cheese (pasteurized milk, salt, cheese culture, rennit)


This month’s Kloverbox only had 3 items, but with one item coming in at $64.00 ~ the antioxidant mask ~ I cannot complain!  I really love how Kloverbox brings us unique and unexpected items in our monthly boxes ~ the calendar is so pretty and I have never received anything like it before!  The easel is a unique way of displaying the beautiful prints.   The apple cheese crisps were really good and I am already very pleased with the mask.    I paid $15.00 due to a Black Friday promo code + renewing 3 month subscription and received a value of $75.00, which is a really fantastic deal!   What a great deal  and I didn’t mind the wait!    Do you subscribe to Kloverbox?  What was your favorite product this month?
