Pura Vida Costa Rican Terrazu Coffee – Value $4.80

This coffee is outstanding! It’s also included every month! I prefer coffees from Central America, and this particular coffee is a great reminder of why. It’s bold but not too bold, and there’s very low acidity. Just rich coffee flavor!

Pure Organic Chocolate Brownie Bar – Value $2.19

This brownie bar was super decadent and delicious! It was a little high in carbs for those who are interested, and I didn’t like that dates and agave nectar were the first two ingredients, but wow, so tasty!

Unearth Malee Organic Vegan Lotion Bar – Value $7

I have been receiving a lot of solid lotions in subscription boxes lately for some reason! Fortunately I like them, and this one smells amazing. It absorbs fairly quickly and leaves my skin feeling soft.

Wild Rose Herbs Purifying Facial Mask– Value $24.95

I tried this mask last night, and so far, so good. I have sensitive skin, so sometimes masks give me problems, but this mask is especially designed for the blemish-prone. I don’t know how much “purifying” happened, but it definitely left my skin soft and smooth.

Wild Botanicals Sweet Orange Soap – Value $8

This soap smells great and lathers well. Plus the paper has wildflower seeds embedded in it! This is going straight into the curb garden!

PuraVidaAugust2016-010

Wild Botanicals Pineapple and Lychee Lip Balm – Value $4

This lip balm smells so good and so different! It also feels nice and moisturizing.

PuraVidaAugust2016-009

Amazing Grass Green Superfood Chocolate – Value about $1.50

This is an instant drink mix that’s chock full of superfoods! It tastes very healthy!

Verdict: This month’s Pura Vida Box was an improvement over the previous two months. The value comes to abut $52, which is a little better than the cost of the box, but much better than the value of previous boxes. I still wish more of the items were actually related to Costa Rica, as this box is supposed to be about Costa Rica. Still, I did receive all items that I have or will use, and they are nice items, so I’m happy. I think Pura Vida Box is still working out some startup kinks.

What do you think of Pura Vida Box?

  1. Their coffee is AMAZING!! Everything I received from this box was great.. I just wish the price point was a bit lower… 🙁

  2. It looks like you’ve changed your photograph set up, Anna. Nice!

    This is a good assortment: chocolate and skin care! The mask is way overpriced, though, and the box is just too high right now.

  3. “It tastes very healthy”, lol.
