Each box comes with a booklet detailing the month’s products and prices. Art of Organics’ theme this month is “Fresh” and the products are intended to keep you cool and revitalized even in the hottest weather. The lush, tropical print on the box band and booklet titled “Aloha” was done by Fox & Fallow a design company located in Brisbane, Australia and founded by high school sweethearts.
Lilfox Eucalipto Moroccan Black Soap + Body Mask (6.8 oz.) – Value $44.00
Moroccan Black Soap is made with Moroccan Olive Oil and eucalyptus leaf oil. While it’s called Black Soap it’s more of a dark green color that reminds me of seaweed. It’s thick and greasy and can be used as either soap in the bath or shower or as a body mask. If using as a mask spread a generous amount on your entire body and leave on for 5-15 minutes and then rinse off. If using as soap it can be used daily and replace normal bar soap. This “soap” doesn’t foam up like normal body wash and the eucalyptus smell is quite overpowering to me.
Ursa Major Hoppin Fresh Deodorant (2.5 oz.) – Value $18.00
I’m a fan of Ursa Major and I am still on a quest for the perfect natural deodorant so I was excited to try this. I loved how it glided it on and I found it very effective, I just don’t care for the eucalyptus scent, though admittedly it’s much lighter than the Lilfox Black Soap at least. This deodorant contains baking soda, kaolin clay and aloe to soothe and help absorb odors. I’m hoping they come up with another scent of Ursa Major Deodorant I can try (they do have an unscented formula for sensitive skin, but I actually prefer some scent to my beauty products).
Honua Hawaiian Beauty Water (2 oz.) – Value $24.00
Honua Beauty Water is an exfoliant that can be used on your face and decollate 1-5 times a week (1 time a week for dry skin, 3-5 times a week for oily skin). Put the water on a cotton round and wipe over cleansed skin, then follow up with your normal serum or moisturizer. The Beauty Water contains coconut water, papaya enzymes, Hawaiian sugar, organic rose, hibiscus and organic witch hazel. I saturated a cotton ball and wiped it over my face, my skin felt tighter (most likely from the witch hazel) and super clean, it also was left with a faint rose scent. I don’t use a toner or liquid exfoliator like this as part of my normal beauty routine and I am looking forward to trying it consistently for these next few summer weeks when my skin tends towards the oily side.
Verdict: This month’s Clean Beauty Box value is $86 which is more than double the $39 cost of the box and is great for an ingredient conscious beauty box. Unfortunately, due to the eucalyptus in two of the three items, this month wasn’t a big hit for me personally. It pains me to say that because I absolutely love Clean Beauty Box but not every month can be a homerun. All three products are full size and effective, and I think if you like eucalyptus you’ll be much happier with this box than I was. I am happy to note though that this month they went back to their original formula of featuring three different brands rather than spotlighting one brand as they have been doing in recent months. I prefer the mix of brands and hope this trend continues. I can’t wait to see what their theme and brands are next month!
