Go Native! June 2018 Review

As soon as I opened this box, it smelled completely amazing so I can’t wait to see what I got!

Little Hands Hawaii Tinted Mineral Sunscreen Face Stick, 1 oz. – Retail Value $12.00

What a perfect item to kick off summer! The packaging for this SPF 40+ mineral sunscreen is so darned cute as well as super earth-friendly since it’s made of a biodegradable paper material. I also really enjoy the simple push-up applicator. This particular one is tinted but as I put it on my face, I didn’t notice a color at all. Made from non-nano zinc oxide, coconut oil, macadamia nut oil, beeswax, shea butter and vitamin E oil, this still glides on easily without being too sticky. It’s probably best used without makeup since it sits on your skin and doesn’t absorb like a cream or spray would though I’m not bothered by it at all. Lavender, frankincense, and myrrh give this a lovely light scent to it. It’s a great size to toss into your bag so that it’s always on hand to protect you from the sun.

Indigenous Soap Company Mama’o Soap – Retail Value $8.50

This soap company is a staple of the Go Native! box with a good reason. It’s made in Hawaii with all natural ingredients by Hawaiians. I’ve received a couple different types of their soaps in past boxes but this is my first Mama’o Soap and let me tell you it is heavenly. It’s probably the culprit for the awesome smell coming from the box. Not only does it smell good but those ingredients have health benefits as well:

The Essential Oil combination is important in this soap; Orange Essential Oil has uplifting properties for the mood as well as the immune system; Camphor Essential Oil helps to reduce swelling, bruises and sprains; Citronella Essential Oil is a powerful astringent and insect repellant. So, take Mama’o and go enjoy the great outdoors.

I wish I could enjoy it as they suggest: “in an Indonesian outdoor shower surrounded by wet rocks, fern, and tropical flora”, but alas my tiny bathroom in Pittsburgh will have to do.

Bee Happy Hawaii Aloha Votive Candle with box Bee Happy Hawaii Aloha Votive Candle info for Bee Happy Hawaii Aloha Votive Candle

Bee Happy Hawaii Aloha Votive Candle – Retail Value $7.00

This little candle is made with 100% Hawaiian beeswax with a Kona cotton wick and is free of any dyes or added fragrances. It has the word “Aloha” stamped into it which is such a nice little touch! I’ll be setting this in a little dish and keeping it on my front porch to bring a little ambiance to my beer sipping sessions this summer. It has a burn time of 5 hours so that should keep me out of the dark for at least a couple of nights.

Mamalani Pule Oil Mamalani Pule Oil with cap off

Mamalani Pule Oil, 10 ml – Retail Value $14.00

The wonderful scents keep rolling with this roll on oil blend that contains “Frankincense and Myrrh Gum Resin and Hawaiian Sandalwood into Kukui Nut oil for 6 weeks and then added into fractionated coconut oil.  Coconut and Kukui Nut oil infused with Frankincense, Myrrh Gum Resin, and Hawaiian Sandalwood Powder.” The intended use is to roll this onto hands, feet, neck, and temples before prayer time. If you’re like me and don’t necessarily pray to anyone (or anything), you can just inhale deeply after putting this on desired areas and take a moment to enjoy the healing properties and spiritual connections these essential oils form.

Aloha Aid Bandages, 21 ct. – Retail Value $4.79

I’ll say that I am more prone to bumps and scratches in the summer than I am in the winter with more exposed skin and better weather to get out into the world and do things. That means that these pretty Hawaiian patterned bandages are right on time. They’re all the same standard size but feature three different floral patterns with bright colors. The other good thing is that with each box of bandages that they sell, they donate bandages to local organizations that help to provide medical assistance and empower the less fortunate.

Verdict: Go Native! really did a great job this month and I think they captured a lot of summer. For $41.60 ($37.00 + $4.60 shipping) I received five all-natural items made in Hawaii, many with native ingredients that totaled a retail value of $46.29. I’ll probably get the most use out of the sunblock but all of the items are super usable and overall this is the best smelling box they’ve done! While the value is only about $5.00 more than the cost, keep in mind that you’d most likely have to pay to ship each item as well if ordering separately.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, their cutoff date is the 15th to receive the following month so order today to receive August as your first month.

  • Sunscreen Stick: $10.78
  • Soap: $7.64
  • Candle: $6.29
  • Pule Oil: $12.58
