California Found June 2019 - Booklet

Instead of a booklet or pamphlet, California Found sends these really cool info cards for each product. They are very nice quality and informative. It also points out that they donate 10% of their profit every month to a charitable cause, and this month they are donating to Surfrider Foundation. Also, they have added a Golden Ticket contest – so if you find one in your sizzle, you get a free box for yourself or a friend!

Cosmetic Sac by Urbana Sacs – Retail Value $36 

This is exactly the kind of eco-friendly, recycled wonder I would expect to get from California! I know we get a lot of makeup bags in subscription boxes, but I have to call it – this one is my new favorite! It is such a gorgeous color, and it’s so roomy! It has the feel of leather, but unlike leather, it can be washed and used over and over again. It is made from a blend of virgin pulp fiber blends and recycled felt. The tassel is reclaimed leather, and the zipper is from discarded blue jeans! You just can’t get much greener than that. Urbana Sacs is based in Los Angeles.

Zen Garden Candle (2.5 oz) by Urban Re-Leaf – Retail Value $22

I absolutely love getting candles in subscription boxes, but I have to say, this is the first time I have ever received one with cannabis essential oil! This candle is one of nine fragrances offered by Urban Re-Leaf in their coconut wax candles, and it is very subtle. It does not smell at all like marijuana, and in fact, the essential oil comes from a cannabis strain that contains no THC or CBD. Nonetheless, it is supposed to have a relaxing effect. I am picking up mostly floral notes, but again, it does not really have much fragrance at all. The jar is also beautiful! Urban Re-Leaf is also based in Los Angeles.

Soft Baked Granola Bites (3 pouches) by Vive – Retail Value $2.99 each 

OK, I know that was a lot of pictures, but I really wanted you to see the short list of wholesome ingredients in each of these pouches. They are so delicious! All of them! My kids loved them too. I love that they are made of such good stuff, and that they managed to sneak in some superfoods. I honestly don’t know how they managed to make such yummy treats! Vive is run by a mother and daughter team in Reseda, California.

Organic Botanical Hydrating Spritz by On Board – Retail Value $14.99  

On Board is actually a brilliant idea! They make organic skincare products and sell in sizes small enough to take on board aircraft. My skin gets super dry on planes, so this hydrating mist is awesome! All of their products are completely organic and made of 10 ingredients or less. This smells really light and nice, and leaves my skin feeling moist and refreshed! On Board products are created in Los Angeles.

Ocean Jasper Beaded Silver Bracelet by MB Bead and Stitch – Retail Value $37

I have never heard of Ocean Jasper, but look at how beautiful it is! I love this bracelet! The stones contrast really well with the silver chain. The length is also adjustable. MB Bead and Stitch is based in San Diego, California.

The Verdict: California Found is one of my favorite subscription boxes, and I look forward to it so much every month! This month was another fabulous one! I really love the bracelet and cosmetic bag. They also have a promised value of $90, which is outstanding, but this month’s total value comes to $118.96! And the box only cost $49! That’s amazing!

  1. Thanks, Anna for such a thorough and thoughtful review! I agree, your enthusiasm makes me smile!!! Aren’t those Vive granola bites so delish?! Love them!

  2. The bag reminds me of Josie’s (original) prom dress on Never Been Kissed…

I have loved every item in every box (4 or 5 total so far from for me!) and I have to say that it has quickly become the subscription box I look most forward to each month.

Beth definitely creates a wonderful California experience for all of us each month!!!!
