ElleBox Review October 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.
ElleBox is my go-to subscription when it comes to Time of the Month boxes. These ladies know what they are doing. I love the simplicity of this box as well as the price point. But then again, can you really put a price on convenience and comfort when it comes to your period? I think not!
Just in case you aren’t familiar with Ellebox, let’s review the details:
- Choose Your ElleBox
- Necessities Box – The necessities to make sure you’re all covered; organic tampons and/or pads.
- Comfort Box – Your choice of organic tampons and/or pads, chocolate and tea, and 2 self care gifts for you!
- Customize Your Contents
- Choose whether you want all pads, all tampons, or a mixture.
- Choose regular tampons or super tampons.
- Your ElleBox Arrives
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 October 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.
OM Organics Charcoal Matcha Mask
Delivers a brightening burst of antioxidants while banishing toxins and blemishes. Charcoal & Matcha are the hottest new power couple. Charcoal cleans out and shrinks your pores, helps manage oily skin, and soothes irritation, and Matcha is detoxifying, antioxidant packed, and mood boosting. Talk about a dream team!
If I remember correctly, I don’t think we have received this brand before. I love testing out new brands especially when they focus on natural beauty as OM Organics does. This mask is made with clay, charcoal, honey, rose water and coconut oil…….just to name a few.
OM Organics Blemish Treatment
Our Blemish Treatment effectively heals and treats breakouts with carefully chosen ingredients to address inflammation, neutralize bacteria, and prevent scarring. This potent treatment oil reduces redness and inflammation within minutes.
Crafted with love, one drop can heal all your spots! Active ingredients include Black Cumin Oil (a powerful anti-inflammatory that works to unclog pores, reduce acne, fight infection) Tamanu Oil (helps heal skin and minimize scarring), and Rosehip Oil (essential fatty acids help regenerate skin cells and repair damaged tissue while minimizing scarring). Plus some essential oils including Lavender, Chamomile, Helichrysum, and Tea Tree.
Ohh……this is perfect!!! I have been wanting to get a blemish treatment for that odd little breakout, but keep forgetting to pick one up. This ones sounds absolutely perfect as it includes some of my favourite ingredients – rosehip oil, tamanu oil and lavender, which are all amazing!!
Amoda Tea – Cleanse
Cleanse tea is a nourishing, restorative tonic that helps to renew your body from the inside. A detoxifying blend of organic herbs that work together to gently remove toxins while restoring your body’s ability to properly absorb nutrients – an essential combo! Feel more energetic, achieve clear glowing skin, improve metabolism and strengthen overall health. This is not a quick fix, laxative-based tea. This is a gentle restorative tea with red clover, chamomile, dandelion root, marshmallow root, ginger, nettle, goji berries and licorice.
It looks like they are switching up their tea brand this month. Usually we receive Tea Sparrow but this month they have included a blend from Amoda Tea. I am very familiar with this brand as I review their subscription box every month. I’m a huge fan!
Truffle Pig Milk Chocolate Bar
Get your chocolate fix on! This farm-to-bar chocolate features 47% cacao. Scientists say cacao can improve your mood, be an excellent source of fiber, reduce inflammation, and support heart health! Grab this for a guilt-free snack that satisfies your choco cravings.
YESSSS! Truffle Pig Chocolate is back!!! This chocolate is absolutely AH-MAZING!! I am obsessed with this stuff. It’s actually kind of dangerous for me to keep it in the house because I could literally eat it all day, every day. It’s THAT good. I hope they include this in every box from now until Summer.
ElleBox Review October 2017 – Final Thoughts
ElleBox is just absolutely lovely. That’s the best way to describe it. They put together a great box every month. It is consistent, they include great brands, introduce me to new products, and they satisfy my chocolate craving. What more can a girl ask for? This is a convenience subscription that saves me time and energy every month. It saves me a trip to the store and it makes me feel better when I am feeling crappy…..like today…..today I need every single item in this box. As soon as I am done work I am applying that mask, making that tea and eating that chocolate bar……the entire thing…….and I’m not going to feel bad about it!
