There’s no info card in the box, but I did get this tulip-printed image that’d work great as a postcard.

acne spot treatment packets

acne spot treatment info

2 Earth’s Care Acne Spot Treatment Packets, 0.1 oz. each – Buy a 0.97 oz. tube for $14.99

I begrudgingly still get blemishes now and then, depending on how I’m treating my hormones. (A little too much stress here, a weekend of crummy eating habits there, and poof, acne reappears!) So it’s nice to have these little packets on hand. Each one has enough to dab on top of a few spots or spread across a bigger area. This vegan and animal-testing-free formula has sulfur, bentonite clay, and oatmeal in it, which helps naturally clear and soothe skin. It didn’t completely clear but definitely did calm down the spot I put it on overnight!

fatco lotion

body lotion sample

FatCo Body Butter in Orange, Ginger, and Ylang Ylang, 0.3 fl. oz. – Buy 4 oz. for $27.00 (Found here for $20.25)

The next sample-sized item I got was this packet of smooth and sumptuous body butter. This cruelty-free lotion is made with tallow from grass-fed cows, so it’s ultra-supple. It also smells fresh and energizing thanks to the citrus and ginger in the blend.

salt blend

salt blend inside bag

Naked Lemon Ginseng Bath Tea, 2 oz. – Retail Value $5.00

This blend of lemon balm, ginseng, tea leaves, sea salt, Epsom salt, and baking soda makes a regular bath a spa-like, aromatherapeutic experience. The scent is upbeat and energizing, and the salts are soothing. This packet includes enough for about one use. They recommend it as a foot soak, which is a great idea!

sunscreen info

Garden Goddess Organics Everyday Sunscreen, 1 oz. – Retail Value $3.99

I’m a huge proponent of sunscreen (mostly because I’m suuuper fair) all year ’round, but I’m totally in the dark about just how toxic or non-toxic different name-brand sunscreens are. This Goddess Garden SPF 30 sunscreen came with a card describing the different levels of toxicity in sunscreen ingredients, which is helpful. I like the Goddess Garden formula—it’s comfortable and light and not much different than something I might buy at the pharmacy, sans the creepy ingredients!

ashwagandha packet

ashwagandha ingredients

ashwagandha powder

Organic Traditions Ashwagandha Root Powder, 1.06 oz. – Buy a 7 oz. package for $11.99

I’ve seen and tried Ashwagandha products before. The idea is that this mushroom-derived adaptogen, when incorporated into your daily routine, can help your body better respond to stress. This powder is great for spooning into smoothies. (The flavor is super earthy to me, so I’d recommend blending it with something else to make it easier to enjoy.)

pomegranate vanilla nuts

healthy nut snack

Sahale Snacks Pomegranate Vanilla Flavored Cashews, 1.5 oz. – Buy 9 for $22.27

If I had to pick, I’d say cashews are my favorite nuts to snack on. The addition of sweet pomegranate and mild vanilla glaze makes them even more awesome. Grab and go packs like this one are awesome when you want to have something on hand while running errands (to keep you out of the ddrive-thru Starbucks or the food court when hunger strikes).

True Moringa Pure Moringa Simplicity Facial Oil, 0.17 fl. oz. – Retail Value $17.00

This oil is so light and lovely! Moringa is supposed to be helpful in moisturizing skin and preventing aging. I like how quickly this formula absorbed into my skin without feeling too heavy or leaving a lot of oil behind.

starboard alchemy clay mask

clay mask powder

Starboard Alchemy French Green Clay Mask, 4 oz. – Retail Value $22.00

Mix this clay mask with a bit of water, and it turns into a powerful, oil-reducing mask. For my combination skin, it took only about 5 minutes for this mask to tighten, dry, and absorb a bunch of unwanted oil from my face. Washing the mask off also exfoliated my skin just a bit. I definitely had to add a light moisturizer once this mask was off (my skin was pretty dry after using it), but it definitely left my face feeling clean and refreshed.

coffee bag

coffee bag information

Ethical Bean Company Coffee in Lush, 2.1 oz. – Buy as part of a 6 bag sample pack for $12.99

I’m going to try to get into a routine of making my own iced coffee this summer, so this coffee is perfectly timed. I like deeper coffee blends, so this medium dark roast was right up my alley. The fact that it’s ethically sourced is an added bonus!

PRNCPLS Natural Toothpaste, 3.4 oz. – Retail Value $8.90

PRNCPLS is a subscription-based toothpaste service. Interesting, right? The idea is that they send you a new tube each month with an option to add on a toothbrush, floss, or extra toothpaste to each order. The toothpaste itself is fluoride-free and made with activated charcoal. Charcoal toothpaste is definitely a little different from commercial toothpaste if you’ve never tried it before. Personally, once I got past the slight flavor difference, I felt like my mouth was just as clean as it would’ve been with name-brand stuff.

Senza Bamboo Toothbrush – Retail Value $4.75

This toothbrush is made from sustainable bamboo rather than plastic, making it an eco-friendly option. Like the charcoal toothpaste, it’s interesting switching from a mainstream toothbrush to one of these guys. It needs a little more rinsing-off, I find, but it’s otherwise pretty much the same experience. The bamboo is naturally anti-bacterial, too.

nature soap

Nature by Canus Soap, 5 oz. – Retail Value $4.79

This soap smells so lovely! It’s like a meadow of sun-warmed wildflowers. The soap is made with goat’s milk and shea butter, which makes it ultra creamy and nourishing, rather than drying.

The Verdict: This box was awesome for discovering new natural brands and products to try. I was really happy with the quality of everything, especially the body care items like the moringa oil and the goat’s milk soap. And though there were a few sample items in the box, the majority of things I got were full-sized! Awesome! For $25.00 + free shipping, it felt well worth it.

To Wrap Up:

  1. This seems like an interesting box, in the review you say: “I’ve seen and tried Ashwagandha products before. The idea is that this mushroom-derived adaptogen”. Ashwaganda is not a mushroom and the product website contains no mentions of mushrooms at all. So where are the mushrooms coming from, I am confused.

  2. I just got this box today and paid as a deluxe box. I hope this is posted wrong as an original box. I am confused too. It is June so I thought I would get a summer box.

  3. This is becoming my fave box. If they made it monthly in the states I would be so excited!!

  4. I hope this is the original box and not deluxe. Seems like these reviews get posted without double checking for errors and mistakes. Please reviewers, look over your reviews and make sure they are accurate!!! This one was confusing too.

  5. The website says Original Box is $25/quarter or $90/annual and the Deluxe is $45/quarter or $170/annual.

  6. Ooo. This box is right up my alley. Now to lift my self-imposed sub ban or not?
