Despite them being all the rage in the beauty community, I'm not really big on subscription boxes. I like the idea of receiving a mix of surprise samples and goodies to trial each month, but to be honest, I'm already swimming in samples and beauty products, so subscribing to a monthly box would just add to my dreaded clutter. However, if I win a box, then I'm all for it! Like I did with the August Lifestyle box from Native Box. I won it in September and they sent me the August one. No complaints here! The theme is "Fitness Frenzy" which frankly wears me out just typing it. LOL. Here's what came in the box!
~ Essentially Natural Organic Coconut Chips
~ Anerah Skincare Relaxation Bath Salts
~ Anerah Skincare Sensitive Face Mask
~ Anerah Skincare Face & Body Scrub
~ Ivadore Tanning Treatment
~ Naturalus Paw Paw Ointment (tube + sachet)
~ Naturalus Paw Paw Gel sachet
~ Naturalus Aloe Vera Gel sachet
~ Hello Fresh $35 Gift Voucher
I'm quite happy with this box! Of course I have nothing to compare it to, so I don't know how this measures up to other Native Boxes or other lifestyle and beauty box brands. Also, everything was free and I don't look a gift horse in the mouth (strange saying alert!). It says on the information sheet that the Bite Smart Trail Mix was out of stock and they replaced it with the Naturalus products. That's fine by me because I'm still wondering what the hell do to with the coconut chips! You put them on cereal, right? That's literally the only way I can think to use it.
I just looked it up out of interest, and the Lifestyle box is $19.95 per month including shipping and it seems to be more cost effective if you buy multiple months at a time (eg, 3 months is $55). They also have seasonal Beauty boxes which are $24.95 per quarter. I still won't be subscribing to any boxes because I will win this Clutter War, god damnit!
Don't miss a post!
