Kloverbox, $25 per month, US only
As you can see, my baby bunnies have really gotten into modeling! They took one look at the "hay" in the Kloverbox and wanted to hop on in. This is one of our three-week-old Holland Lops. She's a cutie!
Kloverbox is a monthly natural/organic subscription that has a mix of beauty products, lifestyle products, snacks, and home products. Some months they have all beauty, sometimes all home and lifestyle, and other times a little from every category. This is consistently one of my favorite boxes and I'm always excited to see what is in it! While they currently ship only to the US, there was an end of the year newsletter they sent via e-mail to subscribers that said they would be shipping to Canada early next year! I don't know details yet about when it will start and how much it will cost, but, once I know, I'll let you know!
Kloverbox provided me with this box free of charge to review.
So, what was in the December Kloverbox?
- Dermadeli Calm Chamomile Exfoliating Scrub (full size, worth $21)
- Kiss Me Honey Organic Cooling Mint Lip Balm (full size, worth $4.99)
- Harvey Prince Organics Hello 8.8 Tall Spray (full size, $28)
- Balanced Guru Soothe Me (full size, worth $19.99)
Everything was full size this month! This month's box was worth $73.98, almost three times the price of a month subscription. I think it's a great value, especially with Kloverbox's wonderful curation.
I've been getting so many exfoliating shower scrubs lately. I love it! The Dermadeli Calm Chamomile Exfoliating Scrub is a dry, granular substance. It has a light chamomile scent to it, which isn't my favorite, but it's not overpowering. Besides exfoliating your skin, this scrub is also meant to calm you skin and repair it. This stuff is marvelous. It exfoliated gently and left my whole body feeling silky smooth. The exfoliation didn't irritate my skin at all. I'm glad this is full size because this will be great to use all winter.
Kiss Me Honey is a new brand to me. As you might have noticed if you clicked the link for this product above, the website is www.kissmyhoney.com. Apparently, the company recently changed the My to Me, although I cannot find anything on their site explaining the reason for the change. This is nice, long-lasting lip balm with a minty scent. It was pretty average as far as lip balm goes. It needed to be reapplied often, but it didn't wear off any more quickly than any other lip balm.
I've always associated Harvey Prince perfumes with Birchbox, so I was suprrised to find a good sized rollerball of Hello in my Kloverbox. I had never realized that Harvey Prince is an organic company. Fortunately, I like Hello and was happy to have a rollerball of it. I had a small sample vial a couple of years ago, but that is long gone. Harvey Prince's website says that the perfume has notes of Meyer lemon, grapefruit, mandarin, forsythia, plumeria, verbena, vanilla, and musk. It's a bright, pretty floral. My only complaint is that it doesn't have the best staying power and does need to be reapplied throughout the day.
Kloverbox had the Balanced Guru body butter as their December spoiler. Around the time the boxes were sent out, though, Kloverbox e-mailed a letter to all subscribers letting us know that there had been an issue with getting the body butter on time. Because of that, they substituted another Balanced Guru product that was also full size and was of the same value as the body butter, the Day and Night Body Oil. They also promised that the Balanced Guru body butter would show up in an upcoming Kloverbox. I was happy to get the body oil instead of the body butter because I know I'll get more use out of the oil. I gave Emily a massage with it and found it wasn't greasy and was absorbed quickly. She really enjoyed it and was happy the body butter was switched out and the oil was substituted. It feels so moisturizing!
The December box wasn't my favorite Kloverbox ever, but it was still a good one. I've never had a box I've disliked from Kloverbox. I love the Balanced Guru oil and the Dermadeli scrub. The Kiss Me Honey lip balm and the Harvey Prince Hello were nice products, but they weren't favorites. I liked everything in the box, though, so no complaints here. I can't wait to see what they have in store for the January box.
Did you get the December Kloverbox? What did you think? Was anyone upset by the substitution of the body oil for the body butter? I'd love to hear what you thought of this month's Kloverbox!
