Back in March, I filled you in on the launch of a brand new organic beauty box called Heaven’s Honey Box. Not only did the lovely folks from Heaven’s Honey send me the May box to review, they also set me up with a great coupon code for my readers. For 15% off your first box, just use the code: SUBTHERAPY
This box costs $49.95 and features 5-8 full size, natural body care products. I always get excited to see the first box in a subscription, so let’s get right to our natural and organic beauty splurges.
It looks like our featured brand this month is “Skin Nutrition from Nature with Love”. That’s really quite a mouthful. For the purposes of my sanity, I’m going to abbreviate them as SNNL because I don’t want to have to type out that whole sentence every time I refer to them.
Charcoal & Lemon Sugar Face Scrub
(Estimated Retail: $12.00)
I couldn’t find this exact scrub on the brand website so I linked to a similar one and used that pricing. I love citrus and I’ve never tried a scrub with charcoal so I’m excited to add this to my routine.
Whipped Shea Butter Body Frosting
(Estimated Retail: $6.00)
This has all the good parts of frosting: sweet smelling creamy luxury–without any of its downfalls like stickiness (and lots of calories). This was hands-down my favorite item in the box. I couldn’t find this 2 oz. size so I linked to a larger one and scaled the price accordingly. It’s like marshmallow fluff that disappears into your skin. (Which sounds totally weird, but I promise its awesome).
Green Tea & Cucumber Body Scrub
(Estimated Retail: $12.00)
I couldn’t find this exact scrub either, so I’m guessing a lot of our products are exclusive to this box, which makes them even more fun. I’m working my way through a giant jar of Sabor body scrub, but I once I finish that I’ll give this one a try. The scent of Green Tea & Cucumber seem perfectly suited to Summer.
(Estimated Retail: $???)
I can’t find this at all on the website, but it’s a great product. It’s incredibly moisturizing for your cuticles and really easy to apply. I’ve been keeping it on my desk at home and applying it as I surf the net or work on my writing. Hopefully this product will make it on the SNNL website because I think a lot of people would love it.
Fluoride Free All Natural Mint Toothpaste, 4 oz
(Estimated Retail: $12.00)
Verdict: The stuff of my nightmares
While I appreciate natural products, this is possibly the hippiest product I’ve ever seen. The only thing that could make it worse was if it flavored with patchouli. I swear I’ve had a nightmare where my toothpaste was black and made my teeth fall out. In any case, I’m guessing a lot of subscribers of organic and natural products would be interested in this, but it’s just not for me. The included card came with directions on how to use this and frankly I found a lot of them pretty scary. “use very little or it will be very oily” and “The paste is black, and will require you to swipe your sink out after each use”. No, just no. I’ll keep my fluoride filled deathpaste, thanks.
Lemon Poppyseed Handmade Soap
Spiced Orange Handmade Soap
(Estimated Retail: $6.00 each)
This are really lovely handmade soaps and I think they are perfectly packaged for gift giving. I adore citrus scents so these are right up my alley. I couldn’t find these exact soaps, so I estimated the retail based on soaps like this pumpkin one.
Shea Butter Lotion 4.75 oz
(Estimated Retail: $10.00)
This product had a nice consistency and wasn’t too greasy. It’s slightly anti-climatic after the body frosting, but it’s still a nice product. I couldn’t find this exact one on the SNNL site, so I’ve linked to a similar one.
Even excluding the cuticle oil, this box came out an estimated retail value of $64, so it’s already well over the $49.95 price and that’s before you consider that most of these items seem to be exclusive to this sub box. Except for the toothpaste, I really liked everything (and the body frosting was to die for). With the exception of the aforementioned toothpaste, I think even subscribers new to natural beauty products would enjoy these products. They felt very luxurious while still keeping their natural vibe.
What I’d like to see Heaven’s Honey do in future boxes is include a more detailed card on the contents. I only received a card with instructions on how to use the toothpaste and sugar scrubs. I really want a list of everything in the box, with a bit of description and why it was included. I think it adds a lot to a subscription service when you get more info about the contents. Still, this was a great start for a natural beauty sub!
