LOWTOXBOX: November 2017

Friday, December 01, 2017
If you didn't know, as well as my blog, I also write for the website All Subscription Boxes where I review...subscription boxes, I bet you didn't see that one coming. I adore subscription boxes, mainly because I love the mystery each month but also there are so many options of subscription boxes to choose from such as Pink Parcel which I reviewed last month or Craftiosity, Treatbox and the Lookfantastic boxes, all of which are fantastic.

Today's post is a review of a new(ish) subscription box that launched this summer! LOWTOXBOX is a UK based subscription box based around natural beauty, food and lifestyle products with as little impact on the environment as possible. They use eco-friendly packaging as well as non-toxic ink and for each box sold, they will plant a tree on your behalf!
*LOWTOXBOX November 2017 (£22.50 per month, inc. postage)
The boxes can be bought every month for £22.50 total or you can get a one off box for £25; additionally there are three month prepay plans for £64.50 and a 6 month prepay plan for £120 - all prices include postage. It will automatically renew each month on the date that you signed up. If you order before the 20th of the month then you'll receive that months box, otherwise you'll receive next months box. 

Let's start with the items in the November box, beginning with the Raw Passion Spicy Muscle Rub Body Rub Oil (60ml). I haven't seen anything like this before but it contains 100% organic and vegan ingredients including black pepper berry oil, shea butter, ginger root oil and many more. It's a great trial or travel size. 

The second beauty product is the Pure Purpose Anti-Ageing Face Oil (30ml) which 100% natural and contains wonderful ingredients that are perfect for normal to dry skin types. My skin is always dry due to eczema but it's even worse at this time of the year, hence my current mini eczema flareup so facial oils are an essential for my skin during the winter months. 
Now onto the food items (my favourite items from any box)! There are four food/drink items in the November box including The Protein Ball Co Goji and Coconut snack which again is vegan and contains fruit juice, pea protein, chia seeds, berries and desiccated coconut. I personally love coconut so I love these and they're great 'on the go' snacks as well as they aren't messy and for me they are surprisingly filling.

The next snack is one that didn't last very long - the Super Moon Crunchy Salt & Vinegar Lentil Puffs which have the cutest packaging ever! I couldn't wait to eat these and they were delicious. I'd definitely recommend them as a heathy alternative to crisps with such an adorable packet.
There was one drink within the box which was the Pow Powerful Water Co Cranberry & Apple Sparkling Water which contains 40 calories, natural sweeteners and 44mg of natural caffeine so if you're looking to cut down on coffee as it can stain your teeth then maybe these naturally caffeinated drinks would be a good alternative. I love this cranberry and apple flavour as it's so delicious, fruity and sweet.

Lastly the final food item are the Taking The Pea Wacky Wasabi Peas (40g) which as the name would suggest are crunchy peas that are coated in wasabi powder. They have other flavour options such as 'cheesy peasy and onion' which I definitely want to try as I did like these but they were a little too spicy for me although I seem to have the palette of a newborn baby so they'll probably be fine for everyone else!
Now we're onto the final few items including the last beauty product in the box. The Coffee Scrub Co body scrub is included and I have the cinnamon flavour which smells amazing and it's a fairly decent size as you could probably get two uses out of it. I always love body scrubs, especially at this time of the year!

As it's coming up to Christmas, there are two more festive products in the box such as the Keep This Cracker which is something I've ever heard of before as it's an eco-friendly reusable Christmas cracker...The cracker pops into shape and it does make a noise but instead of breaking like a normal Christmas cracker, it just slides open so you can re-use it! I think it's a fantastic idea!

Last but not least is another unusual product and again it's something I haven't really seen before. It's the WragWrap Re-Useable Gift Wrap. It's similar to the Lush knot wraps but the material of this one is much thicker, durable and it crinkles and sounds like rustling paper! I think it's a wonderful idea as your gift recipient sound you it themselves or pass it onto someone else.

Overall, this is my first LOWTOXBOX and I'm so incredibly impressed, not only with the number of wonderful items but the range too! I haven't tried any of these brands before and there are a few products that I'd never even thought of before as well such as the re-usble Christmas cracker and re-usable gift wrap which are amazing. I cannot recommend this box enough, it would make a great Christmas gift as a one off box or as a subscription.

Have you tried any of these products? What do you think of the November LOXTOXBOX?
