Little Life Box Original Summer 2018 Review

There’s no info card in the box, but I did get this donut postcard!

Made by Bees Beeswax Wraps, 2 Medium (10″ x 10″), 1 Small (7″ x 7″) – Buy a pack of 3 medium wraps for $24.99 here, buy 5 small wraps for $24.99 here

I’ve been so eager to try this natural alternative to plastic wrap! These reusable sheets are coated in beeswax, which can be molded with the warmth of your hands to hold around veggies and more. They’re biodegradable and antibacterial, too! They have just as much stick as any plastic wrap I’ve tried, plus the patterns are so cute!

little life box kind crunchy bar

little life box kind chocolate bar

Kind Breakfast Dark Chocolate Cocoa Bar, 50 g – Buy a pack of 4 for $2.98

This bar was sooo yummy! It’s not as chewy as a traditional Kind bar. Instead, it’s a bit crunchy, but in a lightweight way—it’s not the kind of bar that takes effort to bite through. The bar is made of grains like oats, millet, buckwheat, amaranth, and quinoa that are just tender enough but still super filling. The cocoa flavor (and small chocolate chunks dotting the bar) make this the perfect snack for satisfying my omnipresent chocolate craving.

Evelyn Iona Bamboo Concealer Brush – Retail Value $8.00

I’m so used to dabbing on my concealer with my ring finger that I thought this was a lip brush at first, haha! Putting concealer on with a brush is wayyy more luxurious, though. I might not use it for my minimal everyday makeup, but when I’m trying to fancy myself up on the weekends, I could totally see putting in a little extra effort with this brush.

Laritzy Cosmetics Eye Pencil, 0.037 oz. – Retail Value $18.00

Black eyeliner is a fave of mine, though it’s not the most exciting thing for me to find in a box. (I usually am well-stocked with enough of my own beloved brands that I don’t need more.) This liner goes on soft and comfortably. It’s paraben-free, which I appreciate, and while I wish it had a little more staying power (it started creeping down around the corners of my eyes after an hour or so smiling and laughing with friends), but I’ll hang onto it in case I’m ever in a pinch.

little life box caf lib packets

little life box caf lib packet

4 Caf-Lib Packets, 2 g. each – Buy 150 g. for $18.95 here

These packets look to replace your usual coffee with a coffee-ish tasting beverage. They’re pretty good—it’s maybe a bit maltier than actual coffee, but I could see it being a fine replacement if you’re looking to kick your habit!

little life box two protein packets

2 Purely Inspired Organic Protein in French Vanilla, 36 g. each – Buy a 680 g. package for $17.89 here

Vanilla is my protein powder go-to flavor. This one is pretty good—it’s not decadent by any means, but it doesn’t have an overwhelming faux-sweet aftertaste like lots of others do. This blend does include cane sugar as well as a stevia extract. I like that the formula is plant-based, gluten-free, cholesterol-free and that it contains Omega-3 fatty acids from flaxseed and probiotics, too. It makes a nice addition to a smoothie or the base for a protein pancake.

little life box stevia

little life box stevia bottle

Pure-Le Natural Stevia, 30 ml – Retail Value 11.13 (found here for $9.82)

Though I don’t typically add sweetener to drinks or food, I may keep this bottle of mildly sweet liquid stevia in my pantry for baking projects or if guests might want it.

little life box smart lime

little life box smart lime drink

Bolema Smart Lime Memory Drink, 250 ml

I couldn’t find a price for this item online. It’s essentially a citrusy, lemonade-like drink that contains ashwagandha and ginseng to help boost your brain’s function. I didn’t feel much of a difference after trying this drink (I feel like it’s the kind of thing that you’d have to drink repeatedly over time to make an impact, as I think is the case with most adaptogens), but it’s a nice refreshing, summery flavor, which I liked.

little life box chlorophyll bottle

little life box chlorophyll drink

Pure-Le Liquid Greens Chlorophyll, 60 ml – Retail Value $3.70

Chlorophyll is supposed to be great for detoxing, as it’s a great antioxidant. This little drink tastes equal parts chocolatey and, well, green. It’s got an earthy, planty taste to it, but it’s not bad, actually, haha!

Nova Scotia Fisherman Xtreme Skincare Forest Charcoal Soap, 1 oz. – Buy a 3.35 oz. package for $9.95

I love how squeaky clean charcoal soap leaves me feeling! This fresh-smelling bar is only about as big as an eraser, but it’s a wonderful introduction to this brand. The sea kelp in the blend gives it a nourishing quality that I really love.

little life box flexitol

little life box heel remedy bottle

Flexitol Heel Magic, 70 g.

I couldn’t find a reliable value for this little balm online. It’s a super-soothing blend of shea butter and olive oil that has a lotion-like scent. My heels aren’t too bad, but they’re certainly a little more calloused than I’d like them to be after a few months padding around in sandals. It feels so good to put this balm on my feet and kick ’em up to relax while I watch some TV at night. I think my skin is getting more supple the more I use it!

Burt’s Bees Radiance Eye Cream, 14 g.

I had trouble finding a reliable value for this cream online. This lightweight cream has the texture of frosting and a gentle, barely sweet smell. The secret ingredient here is royal jelly, which is supposed to help skin become “younger looking” according to the box. It leaves my skin feeling velvety and nourished, so it’s definitely coming through on the moisturizing front!

Burt’s Bees Ultra-Conditioning Lip Balm, 0.15 oz. – Retail Value $4.00

This balm is so luxurious! The formula is lightweight but ultra creamy. It’s made with kokum butter, which is an ingredient native to India that’s rich in essential fatty acids and vitamin E. I love how soft and nourished my lips felt after using this balm. It’s lasting, too!

Pur Mints in Polar Mint, 20 count – Retail Value $2.49

I like carrying mints in my car or purse, just in case. These ones are natural and made without aspartame, gluten, or GMOs. The flavor is like the cool aspects of peppermint without the bite. I especially appreciate the resealable zip bag!

little life box delverde pasta

little life box ziti

little life box chickpea pasta

Delverde Penne Rigate with Chickpea Flour, 450 g.

I had trouble finding a reliable price online for this product, too. (There are a lot of those kinds of items in the box—mostly brands or specific products that seem to only be available in other countries.) I personally really liked this pasta, which uses 30% chickpea flour mixed in with the usual semolina. The texture of the cooked pasta is a little bit crumblier than the slightly more glutinous all-semolina pasta would be, but the flavor is pretty indiscernible from the standard stuff!

The Verdict: I liked the unique items in this box, and I thought it was cool to discover some new brands. The products were all really effective/nice quality, too—the balms are super soothing, the pasta is yummy, the beeswax wraps are super helpful… Know that this is definitely a box aimed at someone who’s very interested in natural wellness trends. Some of the products, like the chlorophyll drink, might’ve been a little too out of the ordinary for me.

  1. Wow what a useful box. Gonna go check out other reviews again before I jump. I want that vegetable cling wrap as wallpaper for 1 kitchen wall. I love it!!

  2. There is conflicting info in the review. The price is wrong and this is a quarterly box, not monthly.

  3. This box seems like a great deal. Nothing I would not use,and some new things to try.

  4. I have those beeswax food wraps in multiple size and I love them! When I first started using them I was concerned how the would wash up after using and if they would absorb odors, but I can happily report that they’re a breeze to clean and they absolutely don’t absorb food odors. I’ve brought several sets for family/friends that saw them while at my house and were curious and I’ve heard nothing but positive reviews !

    • That’s awesome, Kris! I’m really happy about them. Thanks so much for sharing your experience 🙂
