I appreciate the way they group items into little organza bags. Everything arrived in perfect condition.

This month’s theme was Hawaii! I like that nearly all of the items are from local Hawaiian businesses. The card is basic but lists information about all the items, including where to buy most of them online.

Hawaiian Skin Essentials Bath Salts –  Listed Value $7

I couldn’t find these online, but apparently, you can buy them at the farmer’s market in Hilo, Hawaii. This smelled wonderful in the jar, with a faint hint of coconut. In the bath, it initially smelled amazing, but I got used to it quickly. The salts dissolved easily in warm water, but it did leave little lavender fragments in the bathtub afterward. It was still very relaxing.

Aloha Wellness Oils PMS Blend with inhaler – Listed Value $18

This is another product that doesn’t seem to be available online. At first, I tried the little plastic “inhaler”, which contains a tiny sample of an oil blend. I didn’t care for the strong lavender herbal scent, so I didn’t have high hopes for the PMS Blend, which I assumed was identical, but I was wrong!

The oil in the bottle smells wonderful! To me it smells exactly like an orange creamsicle–light and perfect for summer.

Tylenol Extra Strength, 2 packets of 2 capsules each – Value $0.68

Bonjour Jolie always sends some Tylenol or Advil each month.

Summer’s Eve Aloe Love Cleansing Cloth – Value $0.22

Another Bonjour Jolie monthly staple; these are great for travel.

Hawaiian Kettle Style Chips –  Listed Value $1.50 (Or buy a case of 6 for $16.50)

I love the colorful Hawaiian packaging! The description says they are “slow-cooked in the old Hawaiian tradition.” I’ve never heard of kettle chips being traditional Hawaiian cuisine, but I’ll take their word for it. The flavor is indeed sweet and oniony, but happily, the onion flavor isn’t overwhelming.

Diamond Bakery Coconut Cookies – Listed Value $1.50

These cookies from Oahu win as my favorite snacks this month. They’re like shortbread cookies, but with a coconut flavor. They’re light and a little bit crumbly, but delicious.

Hula Girl Candies –  Listed Value $1

Coffee has always tasted too bitter for me, but I was pleasantly surprised when I tried Kona coffee in Hawaii. It didn’t have the bitter aftertaste that most coffee has. These little hard candies reminded me of my trip and were pretty good. The retro packaging is cute too!

Hawaiian Host Chocolate Covered Macadamia Nuts – Listed Value $3

These chocolate-covered macadamia nuts were mostly a sweet milk chocolate with a few nuts inside. They’ve been made in Honolulu since 1927! I found them slightly bland, but then I also found myself gazing into the empty packet with disappointment once they were gone.

Hawaiian Islands Tea Company Tea – Listed Value $1.50 

Pineapple Waikiki and Guava Ginseng were both lightly fruity, though I couldn’t identify a particular fruit just from the taste. Hibiscus Honey Lemon has a richer taste. All three flavors were good, but Guava Ginseng stood out as being a little more vibrant than the others.

Mount Kilauea Honey Sticks – Listed Value $3

According to their website, these honey sticks are made fresh every week. The one I tried was delicious with the tea.

Verdict: Bonjour Jolie did a great job with the theme this month. I was impressed that they were able to source so many items from different Hawaiian small businesses. I tried more local Hawaiian items from this box than I did when I actually visited Hawaii. I calculate the retail value to be around $37, which is great for a $16.50 box. My favorite items were the Aloha Wellness Oil and the coconut cookies.

What do you think of June’s Bonjour Jolie box? Do you have any other Hawaiian snacks to recommend?

  1. Wow, such a great box! The treats and bath salts sound so good right now

  2. This was one of their best boxes to date. The aromatherapy inhaler and PMS blend was so perfect for this box. I already use essential oils so it really was nice to add to my collection. I love that all the items were from small local Hawaiian Companies. It can be hard to find them on the island, since they are so small, so it was really nice to see the, supporting the little guy! I thought the Hawaiian Host Chocolates were freakin amazing! I wanted more and they were gone oh too soon. The honey sticks were also a fav of mine, a really deep flavor and very different than the regular honey I have had. I usually use honey sticks for my tea, but these tasted so special I saved then to eat all by themselves. The tea was not my favorite, but I liked the uniqueness of the flavors. The PassionFruit one was really good the rest like the macadamia one, not my cup of tea…haha

    • I also thought it was one of their better boxes, though I don’t know how it compares with their more recent ones. I took a long break from them, but had to come back when they posted on instagram that aromatherapy was one of the themes. I recall that they usually (at least used to) send jewellery most of the time, so it’s nice to see something different.

      • They rarely send out jewelry now. If I remember correctly, last month was the aromatherapy set, the month before was a huge handmade soy candle, before that an eyeshadow in a nuetral brown, before that was a cute bullet journal I think. At xmas we got a hand crocheted headwrap, I loved that one a ton! Some really great stuff. Last I remember getting jewelry I think it was last November!

  3. I liked this box. I found the guava ginseng tea to be very tasty as well. I got a coconut macadamia tea that was light & unique tasting in a good way. It was also a fave! 😉

    • Coconut tea sounds delicious – I love just about anything with coconut. They always pick the best teas!
