Nosejoy January 2018 Review
Nosejoy always includes a welcome card with a few subscriber discounts and an info slip that gives a little info about each item in your box. I love that they offer the price of each lovely-smelling product and the website for the company from which it was sourced. Nosejoy is really good about introducing subscribers to small businesses, and in some ways, I think of this box as being just as much about that effort as it is about receiving the awesome treats themselves!
This month’s theme is New Year’s resolutions, and the info card includes a little resolution to go along with each product. So cute!
Lollia Wander Petite Treat Handcreme, 0.33 oz. — Retail Value $7.50
Oh my gosh. When I spotted this lotion in this month’s Nosejoy box, my eyes grew wide. A line of Lollia lotions is carried in my favorite local flower shop, and I always visit that corner of the shop, test out a sampler, and dream about justifying spending $7.50 on less than a half-ounce worth of lotion—so you can imagine how excited I am to receive one of my own! Lollia’s lotions have the most heavenly floral scents—they’re so French-seeming—and the most beautiful packaging. Even the copywriting on the box is lovely! This is a relatively thin lotion, which is nice for everyday use. I will covet this tube dearly!
The Cottage Greenhouse Fresh Carrot French Soap, 3.5 oz. — Retail Value $6.50
You can always rely on Nosejoy to add a high-quality soap into the mix. I currently have a few soaps lined up, waiting to be used. I think nice soaps are good to have on hand because they make for great unisex gifts, either as an add-on to a larger gift or as a small token to let a friend know you’re thinking of them without making him or her feel too bashful of a gift-receiver. This French block of shea butter soap claims itself as carrot-scented, but to me, it has a mild, traditional aroma to it that would leave anyone feeling fresh and clean!
The Big Dipper Wax Works Purse Beeswax Tin Candle, 1.7 oz. — Retail Value $5
As far as candles go, Nosejoy has really hooked it up! In the summertime, when my fireplace isn’t being used for actual fires to keep warm, I fill it with an eclectic mix of candles so that when a small group of friends is gathered for drinks and music and late-night existential pondering, we can have that beautiful glow to make the evening feel all the more magical. But, since subscribing to Nosejoy, I’ve spread my candle collection all throughout my house, and I just love it. Sometimes I light one at a time and let their distinct scents waft through the house, or sometimes I light multiples and let their aromas intermix. This all-natural, 100% beeswax candle is the perfect addition. Its scent is faint and classic, and its tin is simple. Beautiful!
Pretty Little Bath Co. Coffee Lip Scrub, 0.5 oz. — Retail Value $6
How cute is this coffee lip scrub? It was handmade in the USA, and let me tell you, it smells amazing. Like a coffee shop! I love that the maker added three little coffee beans inside—such a thoughtful little touch. All you do is rub a little bit of this scrub onto your lips. You’ll immediately taste the sweetness of the sugar and a mild coffee flavor. You can either wipe it off or just lick it off! I started to lick it, but it ended up being a little overwhelmingly sweet for me (I mean, it’s basically pure sugar), so I wiped it off the rest of the way. My lips have been crazy chapped all winter, and this scrub made them feel soft for the first time in months. I might pop this little jar in the shower so I can exfoliate in a more luxurious setting!
Sam Wish Organic Hippy Detox Bath Soak, 4 oz. — Retail Value $10
For the longest time, I wasn’t a bath person. I just felt like it was a waste of water. But, recently, I’ve totally changed my tune. It started when I received a bath bomb in a subscription box and decided to give it a try (I understand the hype now!). I’m eager to try bath salts next. This soak is made from salts of both the Epsom and Mediterranean sea varieties. Fancy! It’s scented with a blend of patchouli, geranium, grapefruit, and lemon essential oils, all of which are organic. I swear I could detect every single one of those scents as I poured a little bit of this mix into my hand. So refreshing! These salts are meant to be used for a detox bath, and I recommend reading what the maker wrote on her site as far as making sure you hydrate, etc.
Nosejoy Gift Bag
Finally, for the first time in the 5 months that I’ve been reviewing Nosejoy, they included some branded gift packaging in case you want to pass any of the items in this box along to a friend. The idea behind it is the resolution, “Be a better friend.” I love the concept, and I will definitely take advantage.
Verdict: As always, my Nosejoy box was a highlight of my month! I received a wonderful variety of products, from new scents of old favorites (like a candle and a soap) to a sought-after surprise (the hand lotion) to two awesome new ways of delivering delightful smells into my life (the lip scrub and the bath salts). Overall, great box this month.

Value Breakdown: This box costs $34.95 for this box, and the items added up to a total of $35 on the dot. That means you’re paying approximately $7 per item, not including the sweet little gift bag and extra tissue paper. I think that’s a great value for this wonderful handmade items!
