JourneeBox ‘Grand Canyon’ Review
Included is a highly detailed booklet with info about all of the products. This box has a Grand Canyon theme and this booklet is filled with the most pretty photos! I visited the Grand Canyon a long time ago (I think I was 12?) and I remember being absolutely floored by how vast and beautiful it was. I am excited about this theme!
Redwall Canyon Candle – Listed Value $40.00
I am usually pretty excited to get candles in boxes because I burn them constantly in our home, a habit that only intensifies as summer turns to fall. This one is downright charming! I love the ceramic vessel that looks like wood or stone. It’s natural but also chic because the shame is minimal and clean. Inside is a candle scented with a blend of essential oils that are both fresh and floral, and inspired by desert cacti flower blooms. It isn’t the strongest scent, but rather a soft one that does fill a room in a gentle way, catching your nose ever so often and creating a very fresh feel.
River Rapids Earrings – Listed Value $29.00
FYI: This was a customizable item! You could choose between these blue earrings or a brown rivers edge inspired pair.
I thought these were so cute the second I saw them! They were also slightly smaller than I expected, which is a good thing for my overall jewelry vibes these days. I like how the golden circle reflects the lower clay discs. The pattern was inspired by the Colorado River and these feel both natural and artsy. The clay disc feels substantial enough to not break but they feel really lightweight when worn.
So cute! (excuse my mascne!)
ADDED 10/2 – Here is a peek at the alternate earrings subscribers could have chosen instead of the item above:
These are a beautiful brown wood-grain look.
Grand Canyon H2O Bottle – Listed Value $20.00
FYI: This was a customizable item! You could choose from different colors.
Sure, I don’t NEED more waterbottles. But I sure do love a cool looking one made of glass! This is smaller than I normally reach for (it hold a little over 13 fl oz) but that makes it the perfect size for stashing in my purse or filling with wine when I am painting outside in the grass AKA my very own paint ‘n sip. The lid has a handy little silicone loop that you could easily attach a carabiner onto for travel.
Antimicrobial Pouch – Listed Value $39.00
FYI: This is an annual subscriber bonus gift.
While I don’t think this little pouch is exactly my style to carry as a purse or wristlet, I did find a perfect use for it! I have been stashing more hand sanitizer and wet wipes in my car and it just so happens that this is a great size for that and the loop easily slips around the shifter in my car so I always have these items on hand without having to search for them in compartments or under the seats. The outer fabric is antimicrobial and the zipper is high quality. There is even an additional zipper compartment inside along with slots for cards or other smaller items. I like the subdued colors because they compliment my interior rather than compete and the subtle gold design is perfect for the theme of this box.
Arizona Wildflower Seed-Balls – Listed Value $5.00
Though it feels a little late in the season to really plant and enjoy these little seed balls, I love this addition. I have a green thumb and wildflowers are one of my many plant-related weaknesses. Simply poke a hole in the ground, pop a seed ball in, cover, and water. I will be saving these for next season but if you live in a warmer climate you could totally still get these started. I am really curious to see what sprouts since this is an Arizona mixture and a far cry from the climate of Pennsylvania. Since some of these might be non-native to PA, I plan on container growing them just to make sure the native PA flowers have a comfortable space. They are pollinator-friendly, non-GMO, and neonicotinoid free!
Canyon Sanitary Wipes, 15 wipes – Listed Value $15.00
While hand sanitizer, paper towels, and toilet paper have THANKFULLY become easy to find, hand wipes are still pretty elusive in my neighborhood. So when this pack showed up, I was pretty thrilled! Sure, it is only 15, but in my world right now that is 15 grocery store trips or 15 gas or ATM runs. So it should actually help out a lot more than the number 15 would suggest. These arrived in a resealable pouch so they are great for stashing in the car which is really the only place I keep wipes right now. They also fit just fine in the antimicrobial pouch that also arrived this quarter, so I already have the beginnings of a new car kit!
Bath Bomb Geode Duet – Listed Value $14.00
Ok, I didn’t know I could love bath bombs even more than I already do, but LOOK at these! They are decked out in colorful salt crystals like proper geodes and have a very luxe-looking gold edge. They are on the smaller end compared to let’s say, a LUSH bath bomb, but they don’t lack for scent and beauty. The teal geode is in a black bomb and smells like jasmine and desert rose, while the lilac-topped bomb has notes of lavender and marigold. While I loved the black water that felt super edgy from the teal bomb, cleanup was a bit of work after a relaxing bath. Nothing a nice quick bath wipe down couldn’t fix, but it was the last thing I wanted to do after floating in my tub for an hour. The lilac bomb created a milky white water that was less dramatic but required no clean up.
Both left my skin soft and smelling great!
Grand Canyon Sun Hat – Listed Value $39.00
I love hats but I also have a big noggin, meaning sometimes they just aren’t comfortable. This one fit enough to wear, but I would have preferred more room. The diameter inside is about 22 inches, while my head is closer to 23 inches around. It is still super cute and pretty much the perfect fishing hat! Since I am pretty used to hats always being just a little too small and wearing them anyway, I can’t complain here, especially since most heads are maybe a little smaller than mine. It arrived with a black satin ribbon which added a little bit of chic styling to a hat that could otherwise feel super outdoorsy.
The brim was wide enough to block the sun and look cute, but not so big that it flopped into my face.
Suede Lariat Necklace – Listed Value $68.00
FYI: This was a choice item! You could either choose this OR a white and clay vase.
My style is a lot less boho than it used to be, but I still feel a stirring whenever I see pieces like this! I love the look of the suede cord paired with the gold of the tassel and the blue beads. The length is also a good one (29 inches) since I enjoy wearing longer necklaces. If you don’t, you can easily look this around a few times and shorten it easily.
I had to take a mirror pic for this because it was such a long necklace! This is it styled with a double wrap and a cute knot. It goes really well with my green top, but maybe less so with my No Face iPhone case.
ADDED 10/2 – Here is a peek at the vase subscribers could have chosen instead of the lariat above:
The clean white glaze with the natural brown is really striking!
Verdict: JourneeBox did a great job at transporting me to a Grand Canyon state of mind. This box always seems to have the most creative things! Seriously, if you are looking for a lifestyle box that is unlike most others, this is it. This is also one of those boxes that is ideal for gifting too since you could break it up into individual presets that would all be super thoughtful and unique.
