LowToxBox - December 2017

Thursday, December 21, 2017
Last month I was very kindly sent the November LoxToxBox which was the first box from them that I've tried. They are a fairly new subscription box on the market and what makes them so unique is that they are focused on beauty, lifestyle and food items that are natural, green, organic or environmentally friendly which I think is absolutely fantastic. Additionally for each box that is purchased, a tree is planted which again is so wonderful!

I loved the November box as it contained such a wide variety of products, some of which I didn't even know existed and a few items that were so delicious. I think it is one of the most diverse and also environmentally friendly, green boxes I've tried (and I've tried a lot as I also write for the All Subscription Boxes website in which I review...subscription boxes).
*LoxToxBox - December 2017 (£22.50 per month, including postage)
Each box doesn't have a specific theme, I think it would be amazing if it did but each one does contain a wide variety of beauty, lifestyle and food items from a range of brands that most of the time, I haven't heard of which is great! This month box contains snacks, festive glitter, toiletries, beauty items and something for the garden. I adore subscription boxes, there are so many that I love and would recommend but sometimes they can be a little generic or samey but this one is so unique, diverse and it's always interesting to see what is in each months box!

Compared to other subscription boxes, the price is a little high but it does include postage and for the number of items you receive in each box (for the December box there were nine items, all but one of which were full sized) which is a great deal. Also a tree is planted for each box sold so you're doing a little bit to help the plant.
Let's first talk about the snack items the were included within the December box as there were four snacks, two of which I've already tried...I couldn't wait. The first were Emily Fruit Crisps in the Red Apple flavour which were the first to be consumed and I loved them! I'm a fan of baked fruit snacks and dried fruit as it satisfies my sweet cravings in a healthy way.

I've also already tried the Veda Soul Awaken Flapjacks, well they are flapjacks to me but with lemon, ginger and chocolate. They are very fancy flapjacks, not just because the flavour is much more luxe and rich than a typical flapjack but the packaging is stunning! They came in a gorgeous copper tin that I will definitely be re-using if I can remove the label.

The two snacks that I haven't tried include the Real Handful Blood Orange & Dark Choc Mix which contains blood orange flavoured sultanas, cranberries, dark chocolate pieces and peanuts - I'll definitely be eating this soon. I also received the Stoats Apple & Cinnamon Bar which will be a perfect snack to keep in my handbag.
Next up, the beauty items and I haven't heard of any of them which is great as usually with beauty subscription boxes, I've received the same brands and even the same products, over and over again. One of the most unusual items is the Medhini Face Scrub which seems to be a kit in which you mix your own face scrub...I haven't come across anything like this before but it sounds interesting!

There was also a bath bomb in the box and we all know how much I love bath bombs! The one I received is from Bubbly Badger London which is a vegan candle, bath bomb, lip balm and soap company! I'm not sure which scent I have but it might be the 'apple pie and custard' one, even so, it smells sweet and delicious.

Another product that also smells lovely is the Soapy Skin Holistic Lemongrass Soap which is handmade using natural ingredients such as essential oils. It's suitable for vegans and it isn't tested on animals. Lemongrass is such a nice scent but it can be a little too strong, however this one is quite sweet which I definitely prefer.

The final beauty item is a small sample of the Eco Glitter Fun Biodegradable Glitter. It also comes with a little pot of what I assume is a gel to help adhere the glitter to the skin. The glitter is a very festive mix of gold, red and green and I'm not sure what I'll use it for yet but it is very pretty.
The final two items are more lifestyle products such as the gorgeous Help Me Organics Thought Calming Candle which contains frankincense, geranium and lavender so naturally I love the scent as lavender is one fo my all time favourite scents! It's 100% organic, handmade in Cheshire and it contains soy wax which is better for the environment and your health. The scent is lovely but quite subtle unfortunately.

Lastly, I received the Seedbom Cornflower Fairy Lights which is a very unusual item but one I've seen before and almost bought for my mum a few times as it is a great gift for a gardener. It is a grenade shaped biodegradable container that is filled with polkadot cornflower seeds so you just throw it somewhere within your garden or plant it and you'll see colourful flowers soon after. I know my mum will love this so I'm very glad that it was in the December LoxToxBox.

Have you tried the LoxToxBox? Have you tried any of these products or snacks?
