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!

What do you think of this month’s Clean Beauty Box?

  1. Can anyone else describe the consistency of their Lilfox soap? Mine was VERY thick, almost a solid jelly. So thick, I couldn’t spread it…it just clumped up. And it had barely any eucalyptus scent (which I love) but did smell like black soap. I’m wondering if I got a bad batch? There was no inner seal, but I don’t know if that’s normal?

  2. I love this sub and have been really happy with the last few boxes. I am trying to get on board with the soap. I really dislike the earthy herbal (almost like ginseng tea?) scent of black soap. HOWEVER, this product is an excellent foot and leg masque. It’s great for leaving on the soles of your feet. Otherwise, I like the idea of stocking it away for flu season.
    I would have loved an SPF product. But, otherwise well done.

  3. I am so tempted by all these cool natural beauty boxes….I know one day I’ll cave! FYI, if you are looking for a great natural deodorant, Schmidts works great for me. I have both the “pot” and the more traditional stick in the Lavendar Sage and they both work awesome…actually better in “smell” protection than traditional drugstore deodorants…AND they are available at Target now and reasonably priced for a natural alternative.

    • They also sell a lot of Schmidts deodorants (both in pot & stick form) at Marshall’s & TJ Maxx, so you should be able to get them even cheaper there. 🙂 btw, I love how the pots include a little scoop too… super convenient.

  4. I LOVE the deodorant. Think its a definite buy for me in the future. Would never think an $18 deodorant would be a HG for me but its perfect for what I want in one and how it wears. Good box this month.

  5. I would save the eucalyptus soap for the Fall, when cold season rolls around! It could be refreshing (esp.in the shower) during those times when only one nostril is working. 🙂

    • Great idea,Kathleen!

    • Great idea, thanks for the suggestion!

      • That’s some wisdom from my years of sinus infections and my cold-catching family members, ha ha. 🙂

  6. I got my box already. I’m really happy with the black soap and Hawaiian water. The toner smells great. I used the black soap to shave in the shower and it was fantastic, didn’t leave my legs too dry. I don’t think I would ever have time to do a body mask but definitely going to keep using it on my legs. They are super soft today. I didn’t notice the eucalyptus smell at all. I tend to like floral smells, hate patchouli, don’t like smelling like a fruit, and it didn’t bother me.

    • Laura, I’m so with you on the “tend to like floral smells, hate patchouli and don’t like smelling like a fruit”! I would add for me that I love mint smells – especially spearmint!! 🙂

    • I like the idea of using it to shave. Maybe I will mind the smell less on just my legs than all over. Thanks!

  7. I’m also happy to see that Art of Organics went back to their roots by featuring different brands. While I enjoyed the boxes where one brand was featured, it was starting to get a little hard to differentiate their box from Beauty Heroes, Pearlesque, or even Boxwalla Beauty which also seems to be teetering that line of wanting to feature one brand vs. all different brands in each box. But having said that… even if Art of Organics (or Boxwalla) decided to start focusing on one brand at a time, I’d still subscribe. 🙂

  8. While this is one of my favorite subscription boxes, I had the same reaction to this month’s items. The scent of the black soap was too strong for me, and I’d’ve loved to try the natural deodorant but I don’t want to smell (or smell like) menthol all day. I agree that not every box can be a home run so I’ll happily look forward to next month’s box and hope that this one was just a blip.

  9. I loved the eucalyptus steam room at a spa in Vegas and I’ve loved a few mint-eucalyptus products so I’m thinking I might enjoy these! Is this box still available if I subscribe now?

    • I think that it is, but I always suggest reaching out directly to the company to make sure. They have fabulous customer service and I’m sure you’ll get a reply quickly.
