The box comes with a few pieces of information about the subscription and the items inside. I like that they not only list the value of the products in the box but also note a little bit about each item.
Honey + Sage Co. Coconut Milk Bath with Nopal + Silk, 4.75 oz – Value $22.00
I don’t take a lot of baths, but when I do, I enjoy incorporating some kind of pampering bath salt or bath bomb. This powder mixes with the warm bath water, adding a soothing, conditioning element to your soak. It leaves the skin soft and smooth, and the rich coconutty fragrance is as delicious as it is peaceful.
Honey + Sage Co. Aura Mist for Focused Intentions, 2 fl oz – Value $16.00
This spray has a bright, fresh scent full of lemongrass, peppermint, grapefruit, and sweet orange. It’s meant to cleanse the air around you, but the Honey + Sage site mentions spritzing some on the skin as a cooling method, or even as a facial toner. I love products that are gentle and natural enough to have multiple applications. The fragrance does have a bit of a soapiness to it that I’m not super into, but I love how the peppermint and citrus in this mist makes a stuffy room feel suddenly refreshed and breezy.
Honey + Sage Woman Journal – Listed Value $6.00
This item isn’t listed online, so I went with the value listed on the info card. I seem to surround myself with notebooks, but usually for drawing or jotting down to-do lists and other small notes. I like the idea of this notebook being specifically for journaling, which the info card suggests can be anything from recording recipes and medicine-making strategies to clarifying your intentions. Whatever “ritual” works for you. I love that this is made from recycled products, and since it’s spiral bound, it’s comfortable to lay flat.
Good Clean Love Almost Naked Personal Lubricant, 1.5 oz – Value $9.99
Y’know, I never ever think about the ingredients that go into things like lubricant. As in the case of tampons and other feminine care products, there are a surprising amount of creepy ingredients (chemicals, fragrances, toxins) that mainstream companies have given the A-OK to being in or around a woman’s body. What effect those ingredients have can be great or minimal, sometimes just depending on the person, but lately, I’ve definitely been opting for simpler, organic alternatives where I can. This lubricant, for example, is 95% organic, is 100% vegan, and contains no petrochemicals, parabens, glycerin, and more. I probably wouldn’t think to go looking for this kind of product myself, so I’m really happy to discover it via a box!
Organic Fair Ginger Ale Soda Syrup, 8.4 oz – Value $9.99
I love ginger drinks, so I’m so excited to experiment with this soda syrup! A tablespoon or so mixed in with sparkling water is enough to make an organic version of ginger ale, but according to the info card, you can also use it to flavor cocktails, too! This syrup has a real kick to it, with a delicious mix of lime, ginger, and spices. My next dark ‘n’ stormy is going to be amaaaazing.
Lulu’s Natural Soap in Activated Charcoal and Tea Tree, 4.5 oz – Value $6.50
Maybe it’s just the placebo effect of having read so much about the trendy beauty benefits of charcoal, but I always feel like my skin is cleaner when I use a product with activated charcoal mixed in. This hand-poured soap is perfect as a facial cleanser, or anywhere on your body where your skin needs some extra TLC.
Verdict: I loved the high-quality, unique items inside this month’s Honey + Sage’s Sage Woman Box. I loved the soap and body soak, and the ginger syrup was an unexpected addition. (I’m used to wellness and beauty boxes having granola bars and fancy dark chocolate inside, so this ingredient was something new and fresh.) The box is pretty expensive at $55.00, but I did get around $70.00 worth of items, most of which seemed to be full-sized products.
