ElleBox Review August 2017
ElleBox is a premium Time of the Month Subscription Box which bundles your choice of tampons and pads with hand curated comfort and wellness goods to make that time of the month a little more pleasant – LOVE IT!! They kindly sent us this box to review.
Do you hate your time of the month as much as I do? I swear, it never use to be this bad. In my late teens and early 20’s it was a breeze compared to how it is now that I am in my 30’s. I’m at the point where I will do anything to make myself feel better during that dreaded week. I will drink wine, eat sugar, pout, cry, watch endless hours of Netflix……you name it. But, I have also discovered the wonderful world of Time of the Month boxes and life is definitely a little more pleasant. I honestly look forward to my ElleBox each month. It’s a little treat to myself and a way for me to get my period essentials without having to leave the house. I absolutely LOVE this box!!

Every month I review the Comfort Box and in my opinion it is the only way to go. Here’s a look at the items I received in my August Box:
The Essentials – Regular Tampons & Pads
Each box is customizable with up to 20 pads and tampons. Their products are made from certified organic cotton, it’s better for your health and the environment. This is one of the features that sets ElleBox apart from other Time of the Month Subscription Boxes.
Instant Clarity Mask – Argan Oil & Blue Clay Face Mask Fruit stem cell complex, argan oil, and french clay instantly nourish and begin to clear away impurities, minimize clogged pores, and stimulate circulation for a clean, clear complexion.
To Use: Apply evenly to clean, damp or dry skin. Avoid eye and lip areas. Leave on for 10-20 minutes. Rinse clean with cool water.
Instant Hydration Sheet Mask – SOOTHING Hydro Serum enriched with fruit stem cell complex, alpine rose stem cells, and rosewater instantly hydrates and replenishes, soothing, nourishing and protecting skin’s own moisture barrier for a beautiful complexion.
To Use: Open packet and gently unfold sheet mask. Place soft, fiber side on clean, dry face, adjusting eye, nose, and mouth openings to fit. Remove sheet liner and relax for 10 to 20 minutes with mask in place. Peel fiber mask from face and discard. No need to rinse. Gently massage remaining hydro serum over face and neck.
Lather Body Wash & Body Scrub
Bamboo Lemongrass Foaming Body Scrub – Formulated with exfoliating powdered bamboo, this foaming, cleansing body scrub gently sloughs away calloused or flaky skin. Sea algae extracts, herbal extracts and almond proteins are used to lift away impurities while leaving skin soft and supple. Precious essential oils of lemongrass, geranium, petit grain, vetivert and ylang ylang revitalize the skin, encourage new cell production and impart a light, refreshing scent.
Mangosteen & Green Tea Body Wash – Enjoy the tropical, sweet and tangy aroma of this mild, sulfate-free body wash as its luxurious lather gently sweeps away dirt and impurities. Mangosteen, known as the queen of tropical fruits, contains phytonutrients called xanthones which are known for their antioxidant and soothing properties. Green tea delivers additional antioxidant protection against environmental stress and free radicals. Aloe vera and calendula calm skin and wasabi extract acts as a natural purifying agent. Rice bran oil moisturizes with fatty acids and antioxidants, leaving skin feeling soft, clean and refreshed.
I have received Lather products before and I actually quite like this brand. I like that their products are free of parabens, sulfates, mineral oil and synthetic fragrance and colors. It makes me so happy that ElleBox focuses on natural skincare items.
Emmy’s Organics Coconut Cookie
These are made from fair trade coconut powder and cold pressed coconut oil, and they are absolutely wonderful. I have received these quite a few times before and they are quickly becoming a favourite. They are vegan and sweetened with agave nectar. I like to have a few on hand for when my sweet cravings hit.
Tea by Tea Sparrow
This month we received a new blend, and it sounds amazing – Lemon Sherbert. It’s a blend of apple pieces, sweet blackberry leaves, white hibiscus petals, and lemon. It’s an herbal blend which makes me very happy. I feel like this would be really good iced. Perfect for Summer.
ElleBox Review August 2017 – Final Thoughts
ElleBox brought their A-game again this month, but I wouldn’t expect anything less. I have been a huge fan of this box from the very beginning. It gives me something to look forward to every month, it supplies me with period essentials, and it introduces me to new skincare brands. Oh, and did I mention that I also get a snack and some tea?! Does it get any better than that? I don’t think so. This month’s ElleBox was packed full. We received four different skincare products which is pretty amazing. I actually kind of want to go have a warm bath right now just so I can use one of the face masks, the body wash and the scrub……ok, talked myself into it….
