Mother’s Day was extra special this year, with the arrival of L.A. Weekly‘s Mother’s Day-themed beauty box. Gifted to celebrity moms and our favorite “momfluencers,” this special package was full of exciting sips, snacks and self-care goodies.

The 2021 L.A. Weekly Spring Into Beauty Box was curated by renowned lifestyle and beauty experts Bill Bakho, Nicole Leal and Jessica Hall. Check out below to get a peek into what it looked like!

Le Mieux

Le Mieux Cosmetics was founded in 2004 by Janel Luu and an elite team of scientists, physicians, and chemists committed to creating pivotal breakthroughs in cosmetic technology to formulate the best anti-aging skincare solutions on the international and professional skincare markets.

Le Mieux’s Hyaluronic Serum is a concentrated moisture complex that delivers intense hydration to improve the appearance of fine lines while calming and softening the skin. It includes four botanical extracts with soothing and hydrating properties, and no greasy feel.


BB Lifestyle®

BB Lifestyle® meets the demands of a skin-savvy, discriminating client because we, too, are a skin-savvy, discriminating client. Under no circumstances should skincare compromise on the purity of ingredients or the visibility of results. Call us ambitious, but we believe you should (and can) have both.

You can count on BB Lifestyle® to deliver multi-faceted, benefit-driven products with sophisticated formulas and cutting-edge ingredient technology. Our products are free of commonplace fillers, cruelty-free, and gluten-free to leave room for ingredients that deliver pure, beautiful results. Because your skin should have it all.


It’s time we ascend beyond “anti-aging” and “turning back time.” Míage believes in transformative skincare that is in complete support and celebration of the present you.

Míage elevates skin in three important steps:

First, leveraging a proprietary La Milpa cactus solution, our products match the natural isotonic conditions of a healthy skin cell. While most skincare products function in harsher hypotonic conditions, Míage creates an isotonic environment that allows active ingredients to naturally (and without force or damage) absorb into cells.

Second, Míage products release a regenerative nutrient blend that is capable of awakening and activating the dormant epidermal stem cells already present within you.

Third, as stem cells turn on, Míage’s waterless micro-molecule formulas feed skin a series of essential nutrients, unlocking greater health, vibrancy, and luminosity that blooms from the inside-out.

Care By Design

Care By Design pioneered CBD to THC ratios that deliver powerful relief. Since then, we’ve continued to research and innovate to offer cannabis wellness with unparalleled efficacy. Our newly formulated ratio line goes beyond CBD and THC, harnessing the full therapeutic potential of the cannabis plant. We have reformulated our tinctures and soft gels to be more potent and effective than ever before. We’ve increased our cannabinoid count by at least 25% per ratio and added the minor but mighty cannabinoids, CBDa and THCa. Finally, we’re excited to announce our newest ratio, 40:1, with the highest amount of CBD on the California market.

Even if you’ve never been to Italy, you’ve probably heard of an Aperol Spritz. While that Aperitivo cocktail is iconic across Europe, our Angeleno Spritz is an instant American classic, offering a lighter, more refreshing and naturally flavored alternative inspired by Southern California.

With the citrus burst of Amaro Angeleno bitter liqueur as its base, brightened up with soda water and a hint of grapefruit, this sparkling canned cocktail is an incredibly easy-drinking option for a sunny day outdoors.

Crack open a chilled, ready-to-drink can at the beach or pour over ice and add a grapefruit slice by the pool or on the patio. The Angeleno Spritz is perfect for any al fresco occasion!


Welcome to Spongellé, where we create your self-care oasis. Using patented technology and innovative delivery systems, we dispense our blend of high-quality moisturizers, botanicals, sea minerals, antioxidant, and anti-aging ingredients to create multi-use body wash infused buffers. Our patented formula provides the same benefits as traditionally packaged skincare, but as a simple and effective 4-in-1 product, eliminating the need for your bottle of body wash, loofah, exfoliator, and moisturizer. Made with love in Los Angeles, California.

gimMe Snacks

We’re on a mission to bring globally inspired, delicious and nutritious roasted seaweed superfood snacks to the lunch boxes, desk drawers, and pantries of people everywhere. From our seaweed Thins to our full-sized Nori sheets we have a power-packed snack for every occasion.

If this superfood isn’t already a go-to healthy snack, it should be! Why? gimMe is more nutrient dense than any land vegetable (yes, it’s a vegetable!) and is a great source of vitamins, minerals, and protein.

And best of all, gimMe is an eco-conscious choice. The entire product line is made with premium USDA Certified organic and Non-GMO Project Verified seaweed sustainably cultivated and harvested in South Korea.

From our sustainable practices to our commitment to using the best ingredients, together we can help keep your diet and our environment healthy.


Lolea is a Frizzante & Gourmet Sangria-crafted wine and Mediterranean citrus. Lolea is part of the party and Spanish culture. Created to turn everyday moments into special occasions full of fun and joy.

Lolea out-stands from the rest for many reasons but mainly because of its ingredients. Made with high-quality wine, Mediterranean citrus, natural spices and its unique frizzante touch. Lolea has no artificial preservatives or colorants.

Lolea is 100% vegan, 100% gluten free, and allergen-free except for the sulphites present in all wines.

Lolea is best served very cold, in a balloon glass with lots of ice and a slice of orange and lemon.

Mad Hippie

Mad Hippie‘s Vitamin A Serum features a unique form of vitamin A called HPR that is bioavailable in its current state without the need of any inefficient metabolic steps (retinol requires two). It works to dramatically reduce the appearance of wrinkles & discoloration, revealing beautiful, youthful skin. It can be used nightly immediately after cleansing and gently patting skin dry.

The Wild by Nature brand was founded in California, inspired by the Californian lifestyle and its innovative natural and diverse landscape, with a focus on creating a product offering that meets the highest possible quality and standards. Made from natural ingredients and offering a unique sensory experience.

We believe that each moment is an opportunity to enrich ourselves as people. We approach every moment as a chance to be and do things better, so we can play our small part in making society a better place to be.

We believe in rediscovery, personal growth, and the pursuit of wholeness. We are committed to naturally growing our American hemp in a way that ensures products of the highest standard, quality and efficacy.

Introducing Fetch, our new, all natural cocktail crafted with premium spirits. You read that right, premium spirits. We had a tough time finding a true canned vodka soda, so we set out to create it ourselves. Non-GMO and gluten free, you’ll agree…this is so Fetch.
