ElleBox Review June 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 subscribe to ElleBox yet?! If you don’t, I am here to tell you that you are missing out. I adore this subscription box, and I love the idea behind it. I’ve said this before, but I will NEVER go back to purchasing tampons the same way again. I will have a Time of the Month subscription for the rest of my life……or until menopause hits, and at that time I really hope they come out with a subscription box for that phase of my life…..just sayin’.
Here’s a closer look at the items we received this month……
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.
Cheri Arome Pink Clay Scrub
A premium sun dried pink clay from Australia. Pink Clay is an excellent choice for providing hydration to the skin while helping improve skin texture, fine lines etc. Suitable for all skin types.
Begin with wet skin in the shower—warm-to-hot water is ideal to soften the skin. Allow the shower to run for 5-10 minutes and let the warm water soften the skin and prepare for exfoliation. Pause the running water while you exfoliate. Apply the cream and scrub in a circular motion. Rinse and tap dry with towel.
Apparently this beauty of a scrub eliminates the need for lotion afterwards. I hope they are right because most days I am too lazy to put lotion on after my shower. I feel like I need to spend some time on the Cheri Arome website……the next two products are from them as well, and they look super fun!
Glow Face Lotion
The beauty secret of ‘geisha’ with Tsubaki Oil, Sea Buckthorn Oil and Rosehip Oil!
It provides intensive moisturizing benefits to skin without leaving a greasy after-feel. It helps to make your skin “silky smooth”. No additive color added. Natural orange color from Sea Buckthorn oil. As seen on Dr.Oz and many popular TV shows, Sea buckthorn oil is well-known today for its healing and rejuvenating effects on the skin. It can also help heal burns, cuts, wounds, sunburn, rashes, and other types of skin damage. It is a new superfruit in the market. Tsubaki oil is the beauty secret of ‘geisha’. Tsubaki oil contains a really high amount of omega 9 fatty acid, as well as vitamins A, B, D and E! A and E are potent antioxidants that help repair sun damage while omega 9 moisturizes deeply, especially on dry and matureskin. The oil has a molecular design similar to water’s, which allows it to penetrate into the deepest layers of the skin.
This is the first time I am hearing about Tsubaki Oil and I am beyond excited to test it out. Discovering new oils and how to use them is a hobby of mine. I love the fact that Tsubaki oil contains a high amount of omega 9 fatty acid & vitamins A, B, D and E! I am also excited about the Sea Buckthorn Oil. I have received it before in other products but really haven’t given it the attention it deserves.
Lip Tint Moisturizer – Rum Raisin
Made with natural ingredients. Super nourishing yet non-greasy! Beautiful natural looking tints. Avocado oil work as natural SPF and Hemp seed oil is rich in Vitamin A & Vitamin E and works as natural preservative.
I feel like I am learning so much with this month’s ElleBox! I had no clue that avocado oil works as a natural SPF. How did I not know this!? I love that this lip balm has a hint of color. My lips can be a little on the pale side sometimes but I don’t like to wear lipstick, this is the perfect compromise.
Tea By Tea Sparrow
This month we received Organic Pu-erh Ginger Tea. It is a blend of pu-erh, ginger root, orange peel, lemongrass, and lemon verbena. I happen to love ginger so this one has got me excited. I like to use ginger when I am feeling nauseous, and that happens at least 2 or 3 times during my period. This particular blend is caffeinated so I will have to enjoy it in the morning. I am really making an effort to switch from coffee to tea, so hopefully this will be a good substitute.
We’re so excited about this one! Chocolate gets melty in these hot Summer months so we’re bringing you this amazing candy that kicks sugar, instead. These gummy bears are made of natural, high quality ingredients with functional benefits that both your body and taste buds love.
I have to admit, when I first opened the box and discovered that we did not receive chocolate this month I was a little disappointed. I am obsessed with the Hagensborg chocolate they have been including for the last few months. But, after reading the product description above, I started to feel a little better about the chocolate substitute. I totally understand that Summer is a bad time to be shipping chocolate and am more than happy to snack on gummy bears instead. I will just be that much more excited about this subscription come Fall when they start including chocolate again……something to look forward to.
ElleBox Review June 2017 – Final Thoughts
What on earth would I do without my monthly delivery from ElleBox?! This box makes me so darn happy, truly it does. I am probably starting to sound like a broken record because I am pretty sure I tell you that in every review. And I must say, I have been LOVING their wellness and comfort goods as of late. They have been including some really great brands, and their focus seems to be a natural beauty products, which makes me even more excited…..if that’s even possible. Every woman needs this subscription in their life…..period.
