February 2013 SeasonsBox - Unboxing and Review

The theme of the February SeasonsBox was Love Yourself and it was filled with amazing products to indulge and pamper yourself. We received 4 full size products this month and I loved each and every one.



This month, we received a box tied with a beautiful pink ribbon. I really like that SeasonsBox uses a high quality grosgrain ribbon to wrap its boxes. Let's open this baby up and see what's inside!



1. Kaia Naturals Juicy Bamboo Facial Cleansing Cloths

30 cloths // $17.99

This is a product that I consistently re-purchase because these are my favourite cleansing cloths (although I usually buy them in the individually wrapped travel format). I was first introduced to Kaia Naturals when I received a sample in my January 2012 Glymm box and I absolutely fell in love with the product. These cleansing cloths are gentle yet effective and they smell great. It's definitely a bonus that they are all natural and environmentally friendly. I was running low on these and planning to make a re-purchase so it was great timing to receive these in my SeasonsBox.



2. Bambu Earth Salt Glow Sugar Cookie Body Polish

255 g // $18

I am not exaggerating when I say that this is quite possibly the most amazing scent I have ever smelled. It's a sweet mixture of sugar cookie, lemon, and almond - it makes me salivate! I keep this jar beside my computer and smell it a few times every night. This product smells so good that it can actually serve as a dessert replacement for me. No, I'm not going to eat it... but I would seriously forgo a variety of desserts in exchange for a whiff of this product. It smells that good.



3. Dream Organics Rose Water

100 mL // $22

This is probably my favourite product of all - and that is saying a lot considering how much I love everything in this month's SeasonsBox. It is a rose water mist, made from the essence of premium organic Bulgarian rose petals. This product has a light and natural rose scent that is not at all artificial or cloying. It is quite literally the perfect rose scent and it reminds me of the rose ice cream and sugared rose petals I ate in France. I initially thought this was a body mist but it can also be used as a makeup setting spray, to reduce redness and improve your complexion, and for relief from bug bites, sunburn, or rashes. I didn't realize rose water had so many useful properties!



4. Galerie Au Chocolate Fair Trade Bar in Cappuccino

95 g // $5

I think I have seen the Galerie Au Chocolat store in Montreal but I don't think I have ever gone inside... I definitely won't be passing it by the next time I'm in Montreal! This Belgian milk chocolate bar contains 36% cocoa and tastes rich and decadent. There are little bits of cappuccino crunch suspended in the chocolate, which gives the sweet treat a nice kick.



Overall, I am really loving the February SeasonsBox! I believe this box is still available on the SeasonsBox website if you are interested in trying the products yourself. The total value of the products included was $62.99 so this box was a great value.

About SeasonsBox

SeasonsBox is a relatively new subscription service that promises 3-5 full-size luxury products for your home, body, and spirit. The box ships out of Ontario, Canada and is available to Canadian and U.S. residents. Besides curating boxes themed with a particular season (i.e., winter, spring, summer, fall), SeasonsBox will also be curating boxes themed with specific holidays (e.g., Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Halloween). The contents of every box are intended to stimulate your senses with the scents and flavours associated with a season or holiday. SeasonsBox provides high quality, luxury, and full-size products (versus samples) with a focus on natural and responsible products. The products are also sourced from various places around the world and most of them are not available in commercial stores. SeasonsBox provides a preview of the products at the beginning of the month. Please visit the SeasonsBox website for current pricing.

If you would like to subscribe to SeasonsBox, I would be grateful if you would use my referral link... of course, I will also send heaps of good karma your way!

FTC: The February box was sent to me for review purposes. I also purchased a one year subscription to SeasonsBox with my own money.

    2. Of course!
      I was wondering if it was time for another of your battle of the beauty boxes (edition #3!), now that you're subscribed to BB5, Ipsy and Seasonsbox, and Starbox which you didn't review last?
      Thanks again :)

    3. i may be doing a "current favourites" type of beauty box post instead as there are so many changes to the beauty boxes (price, quality, etc.) plus i haven't been keeping my tracking spreadsheet up to date hehe. i actually haven't subscribed to ipsy yet but i definitely have a whole bunch of subscriptions i haven't reviewed yet. thank you for the suggestion!! :)

  4. I went ahead and bought a 3-month subscription because of your reviews! I don't think I saw your referral link before though, so if I end up subscribing again after the 3 months I'll try to use it! I'm looking forward to receiving my box :)
