The box comes with a card detailing all the items included with retail values. My box was missing the Nature’s Skin Nutrition Summer Sun Lotion, but here’s what that looks like:
Nature’s Skin Nutrition Summer Sun Lotion – Value $6
Described as: “A light but rich lotion, this summer-inspired vegan blend is made with organic raw Shea butter & avocado oil to leave skin silky smooth. Apply before or after time in the sun to keep yourself soft to the touch!”
Three Little Figs Citrus and Smoked Salt – 9.25 oz Value $12.50
This marmalade is recommended as a glaze for pork, duck, and chicken. It is also said to pair well with brie and there’s a great sounding recipe on the company’s site for a grilled brie and marmalade sandwich. I don’t eat meat or cheese but I did give the marmalade itself a try. It is thick and has large pieces of citrus rind in it. The taste is very strong, so I can see it working well with meat or paired with bread and cheese as they recommend. I think the pig with the three figs in his belly on the label is charming.
Nature’s Skin Nutrition Campfire Spray – 2.65 oz Value $12
This campfire spray smells like citronella, as most bug repellants do. It also has catnip essential oil in it, but I’m not sure what that does! It is packaged in an aluminum bottle and mine came with a couple dents in it from shipping.
Salt Works Handpacked Alaea Salt – Value $10.95
I love cooking with coarse sea salt and love the little jar this came in. I’ll definitely be saving it when it’s empty to use to hold tiny treasures. The salt itself is a coarse grain size (it also comes in fine grain size) and has a earthy taste. They say it’s perfect for brines, spice rubs, grilled seafood and vegetables. I roast vegetables on the regular and will be tossing this on asparagus, potatoes, and cauliflower this week. Yum.
Nature’s Skin Nutrition Campfire Balm – .15 oz Value $6
This is said to help with itchy bug bites or to help relieve itchy skin. I have some bug bites right now and tried them out (I have spared you photos of my bug bites) but because the bites didn’t itch in the first place, I can’t really tell you how it worked. It didn’t seem to reduce redness or speed up healing, though it doesn’t claim to! It smells and looks like a regular beeswax-based lip balm.
Nature’s Skin Nutrition Matcha Undereye Balm – .15oz Value $13
This undereye balm contains matcha. There is a warning on the label that says it contains caffeine, so you should keep it away from children. It is made with coconut oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil, jojoba oil, and matcha green tea powder. I like that the ingredients are simple and all things I recognize and can pronounce. I dabbed it under my eyes and felt a light, un-alarming tingle.
The bath teas from Foxes & Ferns come in hand-stamped sachets. The Rejuvenation tea is stamped with a flower and the Relaxation tea is stamped with the word “Blissful.” I like the peppermint smell in the Rejuvenation tea the best, though the lavender scent of the Relaxation tea is quite nice. I’ve been seeing so many lavender scented products this season! To use, just place the sachet under hot water for your bath. You can remove half the tea from the sachet for a less intense bath. They recommend tossing a bag from the bath into the dryer to add scent to clothes and to dry the sachet for another 2-3 uses.
Verdict: This was my first month trying Prospurly and there weren’t any hero products for me. The total value is listed at at little over $75 which is great but my box was missing one item and a few of the items aren’t available online to confirm the value. This was just an OK box for me but I look forward to seeing what’s in the next one!
