'Lifestyle' Native Box: Fitness Frenzy!




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. 


Guys?????






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!

    1. Very exciting! I'm glad you don't know about coconut chips either. I don't feel as bad now! LOL :)

  2. This seems like an interesting box to get but unfortunately I'm not in the market for another subscription box. I currently get The Parcel & The Parcel Ageless beauty boxes and that's enough for me!

    Good luck with your clutter war! In terms of beauty and makeup products I'm resigning myself to losing that particular war!

  6. hmmmm...this seems like a good subscription box but I still won't subscribe for it. I am not a fan of these kinds for they do not contain good stuffs all the time and most they are disappointing. So curious on that coconut chips....

  7. I don't think this one is really for me. The coconut chips are interesting, though! I don't like coconut, however.

  10. Not a gift box fan, I seem to see a lot of negative feedback on them. Too much stuff that one just doesn't need. But those coconut chips, toast them up, add them to cereal or use them in baking (if you bake?). They would be delicious sprinkled over soft icing.

    1. Thanks for the suggestions Jan! I'm making a banana cake this weekend, I'll sprinkle them over the icing. I didn't even think of that! :)

  11. I love the idea of subscription boxes but I am consciously trying to get rid of stuff, not acquire more of it! It's good to have something to look forward to every month though, isn't it? And there's no such thing as too much paw paw cream! Thanks for linking up to the Ultimate Rabbit Hole.

  13. Oh I do love a surprise box! I don't subscribe to any of these services either. I often think I should but I certainly agree about the clutter. Bron x

    1. Surprises in the mail are the best! A box every month would definitely add up to too much clutter though :)
