Go Native! May 2018 Review
The info card thanks you for subscribing and has some info on this month’s taro powder.
On the flipside, you’ll find a list of the items and a short description of each.
Voyaging Foods Ancestral Taro Powder – Retail Value $12.00
I’m familiar with taro via Asian food but wasn’t aware of the tie with Hawaii, or it’s powder form. The box explains that taro naturally contains fiber, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin E, folate, and is easily digested. It also has more fiber than flour or cornstarch. How does one use it though? The info card provided a recipe to use it with pan-seared tofu (which I actually make quite a bit), and you can also use it as a thickener in soups, or add to a smoothie. I decided to toss 2 tablespoons into a smoothie I had last week and it gave me a boost of all of the things listed above without drastically altering the flavor of the smoothie. Plus, it has such a lovely color!
Mamalani Body Powder Natural Deodorant in Lokahi, 2.5 oz. – Estimated Retail Value $10.00 (Buy a 3 oz container for $12.00)
This showed up just in time because it is getting humid (read: sweaty) in Pittsburgh already. I am obsessed with this scent! Lokahi means “unity” and this is a blend of lavender, clary sage, and grapefruit which is just so calming and soft. This talc can be used anywhere moisture is on your body like feet, underarms, neck, etc. It’ll soak up any unwanted moisture and also serves as an anti-fungal powder while leaving you super soft, and smelling fresh.
Honua Hawaiian Skincare Aloha Youth Serum – Retail Value $58.00
Ooooh- I actually received this exact product in a natural beauty box back in January and use it almost daily! It’s really nice to see this again because I’ll have a back up for when I run out of the bottle I’m currently using. Score! This milky serum contains the following:
Aloalo & ‘Awa: Firming, tightening and wrinkle relaxing
Lau Comfrey: Amazing skin regenerator for youthful skin
‘Ōlena: Anti-inflammatory powerhouse and skin brightener
Noni: Magical skin healer, rich in anti-aging antioxidants,Vitamin C & Selenium to help will cell regeneration
‘Aila Kuku & Kamani: Hawaiian “Super Oils” packed with essential fatty acids and antioxidants, to help hydrate and promote production of collagen and elastin. Ancient Hawaiians used them as protection from sun/environment!
I’ve been using it in the morning after I cleanse, but before I put on moisturizer. It gives my face a really soft glow and does some gentle tightening as it dries and absorbs into my skin. This is a serum I’ve stuck with after using so many, so that should say how I feel about it! It also smells really nice and isn’t sticky or oily at all.
Verdict: I really love this month’s Go Native! box. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it a million times: less is more to me in subscription boxes and even though I only received three products, they’re ones that I already love, am excited to try, or was happy to discover and totaled about $80.00 retail.
