Be forewarned! This post is really picture heavy! I managed to snag a Spring box from Sweet Delight Divalicious. It sold out in just a little over two hours. It was sheer luck that I happened upon the announcement on facebook, as I don't normally check in the morning! What I liked about this box is that there are tons of businesses that are small and what you would find on etsy! So, you can expect to find a lot of homemade and natural products! I've included TONS of links, so be sure to check them out! You'll get a ton of things from companies you've never heard of and fall in love with!! The box was $26 shipped...amazing deal! This is what my box looked like: 6"x7"x7 1/2":
Here is everything out of the box..and I went through everything so fast the first time, I missed things!Smencils. A Canadian Company. I received an HB #2 pencil in Tropical Blast. It is QUITE scented, impressive. What's even more impressive is that it's made from 100% recycled newspapers. The tube it comes in is made from biodegradable plastic. They also have pens which are made from recycled plastic. I think I will use these for favours at my daughter's next birthday party. Way better than the cheap junk you normally get in a goody bag, right?!
Awaken My Senses. A Canadian Company. All their products are 100% organic. I read up on it on the site and it's a facial mist. I wouldn't have known that without looking it up. There are some neat products on the site. I'm not sure how much I love the rose mist, because I'm not a huge fan of roses. It also says not to use this one when you're pregnant.
Willow Tree Collection. Another Canadian Company! It is highly fragranced. You can definitely smell both the coconut and the lime. It's a 100% natural product, safe for kids and pets! I'm going to make sure to keep this one in my purse or close by if we go camping! We get a lot of mosquitos in Winnipeg! I should add we also received a 10% off coupon.
The Curious Cupcake.It's so well made and that little tendril is so precious! I wish it had 4 beads though, as I have four kids. It's so super sweet though I'll probably wear it a few times and then give it to my daughter. This charm also included a 10% off in her store.
Giella. It's extremely creamy and applies similar to a bb cream. The colour here doesn't really reflect what I got. It's the 3rd lightest shade they have and it's a really good match for my skin tone. Apparently, the concept behind the company is creating customized products for YOU and your needs.
Abibirem Beauty. The little tub is a moisturizer I gather? It's made with 100% shea butter. The interesting thing is it actually smells more like hemp to me. It's quite solid but applies in a similar fashion to coconut oil. The lip balm is quite solid but will slightly melt with the warmth of your lips. I'm not too fond of the smell of it...but it's definitely moisturizing.
Tubtown Scents. A Canadian product, yay! I got peppermint and it comes in 15 "flavours." I haven't opened this one yet, so I can't tell you anything about it...but for some reason I'm really drawn to this product! Lydia House has awesome prices on her site so go check it out! I'll definitely be having a closer look!
LipZipz. I got "Kiss" a tantalizing berry. I haven't opened this one yet, but I like it already! You can clip it to anything and it has a string you can pull to use it. This would be an awesome product for my kids. They often get chapped lips and I can attach these to their bags! They are $3 each on the website, I haven't checked to see if they ship to Canada. I hope they do and I hope the cost is reasonable!
Del Sol colour chaning nail polish in Spike. The top of the lid has a sticker that's purple and it says "outdoor colour." I'm not too thrilled with this shade of green, but I love purple. I can't wait to try this out because it's just so different and neat! Have any of you tried this yet? It is a shimmer and like most shimmer's it does get streaky. A good top coat would fix this. I'm just not sure if this would work with a top coat on it.
Crafty Chris. She has some neat items in her etsy store. These came with a 5% off entire order tag.
Bodylish. I love how this one is packaged in wax paper and a simple label! It smells REALLY good... woody with patchouli and lavender and other ingredients. Definitely will be revisiting their site!
CJ's BUTTer in Sweet Orange EO. It smells AMAZING!!! It's a solid and when you dip your finger in it starts to turn to a liquid, just like coconut oil does. I looove this stuff. There was NO information card included with this one and the writing is just way too small for me to read. I did find it by googling the name. My daughter gets severe excema on her elbows so I can't wait to try this on her in the fall. If it's as good as it smells I can't wait to get more!
Mainely Cole's traditional body butter in "Beanie's Blessings" with chamomile. I haven't opened this one yet, so I can't tell you anything about the scent. It's a really nice sized sample, but the full size are quite costly! I can't wait to try it out though. I always like to repurchase GOOD products if they're worth the money.
Babar Too Co sent a cream. I'm not exactly sure of the details of this sample whether it's a balm, a lotion or..? The nice thing is it's made in Canada. Oh, I see it says it's an Omega Moisturizer. *facepalm* The scent is fresh and organic.
California Body Care. I just LOVE this bottle. It has a matte feel to it. When this is empty I'm keeping the bottle to add whatever lotion I have on hand for my purse. The lotion itself smells SOO good. I'm not exactly sure how to place the smell, but it reminds me of my childhood. This is probably one of my top 5's from this box! They have some neat products I'll be checking out.
Amedaya. A body butter in sweet orange & vanilla. Can't tell you much about it, except is SOUNDS good. ;) They do have some interesting products on their site, worth checking out! There's a coupon for 20% off, yah!
Next is another little sample packet from Get Fresh. It's a rich body creme in lemongrass....MMM! Love lemongrass. Again, haven't opened it, so no further details yet! I really like the packaging on their products and their wide variety!100% Pure. This one is green apple scented. Super neat, you don't see a lot of products apple scented. It's a 100% vegan product which some people really like. I'm not fussy. They have a very pretty site and they are Canadian..yah! For sure check it out! They have a TON of beauty items, from makeup to skincare!
Alegna soap in this really pretty pink! It's another site I wouldn't mind trying out. This soap smells really nice and it's in "Gwen" flavour.
Sugarfoot & Co in Super Shea. I just love the recycled cardboard packaging. The website is currently under construction, so I can't tell you anything about it. The soap has a nice mild shea scent to it.
Century House Soaperie. I really didn't like this scent at first. It was really strong/overwhelming. But now that it's been sitting out of the plastic bag for awhile it's toned down and is nice and refreshing. Not as manly smelling as before. We'll see how it is once I get it sudsied! I like that the soaps are wrapped in recycled tissue. There are some nice soaps on the site.
Hawkestone Soap Company. The scent is white tea & ginger. Serious love!! It smells fantastic..I love both on their own but together..YUM! It's also Canadian! There are some nice products at reasonable prices on the site!
Plantlife who claim to use only pure, fresh plant based ingredients. I received the lemongrass herbal soap and body lotion. They of course, smell amazing. I also received a herbal lip balm. I'm really impressed with the products and the website. Can't wait to try them out and cruise their site! They have some really pretty packaging and good pricing.
If you made it this far, thanks for sticking with me!! This was a long one and felt like a full time job, but I hope you enjoyed it! This was a great box that I'm super pleased with. I hope I can score another in the fall!
Happy Hump Day, it's all down hill from here!
