On the reverse side of the bright neon yellow “SEPTEMBER 2016” card, there’s a list of everything in the box, plus some info on each product.
This nutty little bar makes for a good afternoon snack. This chewy bar was almost too soft coming out of the package, but that made it easy to break bits off to pop in my mouth. The flavor is very nutty with a subtle, earthy sweetness that I think comes from the honey holding everything together. I wished there was a bit more chocolate in this chocolate-coconut combination. Then again, I wish there was more chocolate in everything!
I kind of love the whimsical, scenic name of this little candle. I also love that it’s made from 100% US-grown soy wax. Wow, is this candle ever powerful! The incense in the recipe practically leaps out of the golden metal tin when you open it, filling the air with heady fragrance. I didn’t even have to light the candle’s cotton wick for the aroma to bloom across my bedroom. Your inner bohemian will be ecstatic over this find!
Bioelements Moisture Positive Cleanser, 2 fl. oz – Value $15.00
I’ve heard of these “cleansing lotions” before, but this is the first one I’ve tried myself. The white formula has the consistency of a face moisturizer and has an invigorating fragrance that’s herby and minty at the same time. I can’t tell how much cleaner my skin is after using this neat little potion, but I can say that instead of being dry and stressed, my just-washed face has that velvety just-got-done-having-a-facial feeling to it.
Lemonade Pin by Pin Trill – Value $15.00
Enamel pins are totally in right now, and I’ve totally fallen for these cute, collectable, colorful accent pieces. This bright pin comes with a plastic back, which I like better than the old fashioned metal ones you have to pinch a little bit to work. It might seem a bit late in the waning summer for lemonade, but hey, I can rock a low-key Beyonce reference all year round.
Verdict: I enjoyed this Craftly box. Everything felt very high quality to me, especially that cleanser (Seriously, my skin feels so movie-star soft and dewy right now!) The value of the items topped Craftly’s $40.00 guesstimate, too, so you can be sure you’re getting your money’s worth of really neat, unexpected items.
What do you think of this month’s Craftly box? Do you find these surprises so cool or just so-so?
