Go Native! Hawaiian Beauty Box January 2018 Review
The Go Native! theme of the month is Kikiau, which is a sudden gust of wind. They’re using that imagery to symbolize a refreshed, energized, and exciting start to the new year. The items in this month’s box are meant to encourage those three tenants as you set goals and go about achieving them!
They’re also highlighting a Hawaiian charter school called Halau Ku Mana. The 9th graders of this school are going on a sailing trip at the end of the year, and one of the products Go Native! included in this month’s box is in support of their journey.
You’ll find details on each item and who made them on the reverse side.
Halau Ku Mana + Mamalani Kikiau First Aid Salve, 1 oz. — Estimated Value $10.00
This first aid salve is a Go Native! exclusive and it’s the product I referenced above, which supports the 9th grade sailing trip. For those unfamiliar with salves, they’re basically just natural balms that can be used to help heal and protect any number of things. Right now, I’m using mine on chapped lips, and to soothe the outside of my nose from blowing it so often, but I always have some close at hand in the summer, too, to use instead of Neosporin on small cuts, or to ease bug bites. It’s seriously good for just about anything! This particular one is made with olive and coconut oils, organic shea butter, and Hawaii beeswax, and it’s infused with lavender, tea tree oil, comfrey, and other local plant essences. For how much is stuffed in here, it has a really neutral smell!
Moon Phase Project + Kanani Fraizier Mo’olelo Mahina 2017-18 Planner — Retail Value $22.00
Ah, a daily planner. All through high school and college, I looked forward to getting my hands on a new planner each year, and it was basically my bible as I navigated my day-to-day. I’ve kept each and every one of them—they act sort of like diaries! Of course, I wasn’t writing my innermost thoughts in my planner every day, but it’s really fun to go back and see what an average week might have looked like eight years ago. Now that I’m graduated from school, working a full-time job, and no longer toting a backpack around everywhere I go, I find that having my events organized in a Google Calendar is most efficient, but I do often miss the days of using a planner. This moon phase planner might be the one that gets me back into it! I love that it has an educational aspect to it, teaching all about the phases and the Hawaiian words for each one.
Pu’uala’au Remedies La’a Elevation Oil Roller, 5 ml — Buy a 10ml bottle for $15.00
This roll-on oil is another Go Native! exclusive item! It rolls on super-smoothly and absorbs really nicely. The scent is a mix of tons of different plant oils, but the overall vibe has a generally floral (but not overly feminine) tone to it. I love that the bottle is nice and small—sometimes the only reason I don’t carry essential oils with me is because it’s yet another weighty thing to add to my purse. I’m going to pop this bottle in my bag right now!
Mauna Kea Tea Organic Ginger and Turmeric Green Tea, 0.5 oz. — Retail Value $5.50
This green tea is farm-fresh and certified organic! It was made by husband and wife duo Taka and Kimberly Ino, a pair that dedicates their lives to farming and raising their family. This loose-leaf tea sampler is flavored with ginger and turmeric, two scents that are readily apparent when you open the package. Both are such healing ingredients, which to me makes this tea the perfect blend for winter.
The Verdict: January’s Go Native! box includes some awesome products for getting the new year kicked off with organization, healing, and mindfulness. I love that this box supports local makers and charitable efforts and that I’m guaranteed to learn something new about Hawaiian culture each month!
To Wrap Up:
Value Breakdown: This box costs $38.00, and the info card says the items inside have a retail value of $57.00. The two items that I could find an exact price for are worth $27.50, meaning the other two items have an average cost of about $5.25 each.
