Benjamin Soap Co. Green Tea & Mint Bath Salts, 2.7 oz. — Retail Value $6.00
I typically associate baths with fall and winter, when there’s an inescapable chill in the air and I need to soak in warmth. But just last week, I took an herbal bath and felt so soothed & refreshed afterward that my eyes were open to the summertime bath phenomenon! These bath salts have a really nice, soothing scent to them and, while I know this is silly, the minty color of the salts adds to how refreshing they are. I haven’t used them in the tub yet but based off of the aromatherapeutic smell, I can sense this is going to be an awesome experience.
Per the Benjamin Soap Co. website, this product is free of synthetic ingredients and fragrances, parabens, sodium laurel sulfate, phthalates, chemicals, fillers, mineral oils, and petroleum. It also comes in a recyclable plastic bag! Three cheers for conscientious self-care products!
elizabethW Cucumber Shower Gel & Lotion Travel Set, 1 oz. each — Retail Value $9.50
I don’t often buy travel size toiletries for myself because my mother-in-law always fills our stocking with them each Christmas and they usually last me all year. It’s kind of a funny little signature move of hers! I usually keep travel-size shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and lotion in my pool bag to use after I swim laps, especially in the winter (in the summer, the pool counts as a shower, doesn’t it?). This tiny duo of cucumber-scented lotion and shower gel have a fresh scent to them with a nostalgic vibe. They’re kind of like a grown-up version of the Cucumber Melon scent I used to obsess over from Bath & Body Works—in a good way!
elizabethW Cucumber Soothing Salve, 1 oz. — Retail Value $10.00
This salve has a coordinating scent to the above travel-size products. Salves can be used to treat anything from chapped lips to small cuts on your skin, to areas of dryness. The 1 oz size makes it easy to toss in your purse to use out and about. It’s got a lot of good, natural ingredients in it!
Frequency Spray Blood Orange and Himalayan Cedar Potpourri, 4 oz. — Retail Value $7.99
This is potpourri/incense in a form unlike I’ve ever seen it before! It arrives in this tin and consists of a mix of dried citrus and herbs, small stones, rocks of Himalayan sea salt, and essential oils. The scent is potent, with spearmint and citrus as the primary aromas (at least to my nose). The directions say to simmer this blend over the stove with a small amount of water or to simply spread/display the mix dry to let its scent fill the air. Last week a friend made me an herbal bath by boiling a blend of herbs and salts over the stove then pouring them into a hot bath, and the smell that filled my house was incredible. I wouldn’t recommend bathing in this potpourri, but I do like the idea of boiling it to fill the air with its aroma!
Natural Inspirations Eucalyptus, Rosemary, and Mint Body Butter, 2 oz. — Retail Value $8.00
This moisturizer isn’t quite as thick as I would expect from a product called “body butter,” but it does moisturize nicely! I can’t quite detect the rosemary in its eucalyptus-rosemary-mint scent, but it does have a refreshing smell to it that lingers around after applying. I think I’ll keep this at my desk at work to use regularly!
Verdict: The August Nosejoy box’s cooling theme was a welcome way to make me feel refreshed in this late-summer season! I particularly enjoyed the salve and was intrigued by the unique type of potpourri. Every one of these products is made in the USA and some have gone an extra step with their eco-friendly, clean, and/or altruistic efforts, which I love. Value-wise, this month’s items exceeded the cost of the box. The box costs $34.95 (with free shipping), and the contents add up to $41.49. I think that’s the best Nosejoy value I’ve encountered to date!
