Today, I’m very excited to have the opportunity to review the May SeasonsBox. Unlike the other “deluxe sample” boxes, SeasonsBox sends 3-5 luxurious full sized seasonal must-have products each moth.
Each month’s box is completely different and includes environmentally conscious products for your home, body, and spirit. It’s called a SeasonsBox because each box is tailored to one season or a seasonal holiday. Last month I reviewed the March Box which was St. Patrick’s Day themed and featured eco-friendly and green products, plus practical spring must-haves, to refresh and rejuvenate your home, body, and spirit.
This month’s box is Mother’s Day themed and features eco-friendly and stylish indulgences to celebrate motherhood and make every woman feel pampered.
The first item is a natural eyeshadow from Gourmet Body Treats. I was very excited to see this item upon opening the box because my previous SeasonsBoxes did not include makeup. These loose powder shadows are 100% vegan and handmade. I received the shade Island which is a shimmery nude colour. This full size jar of shadow retails for $18.99.
Next is another beauty product! This time it’s a natural nail polish from Priti NYC in a pretty shade from the company’s Spring 2013 Sherbert collection. The shade is called Remember Me Rose but it has more peachy-orange tones than pink. This polish is non-toxic and eco-friendly. I received a full size bottle that retails for $13.50.
The third item in this month’s box is a natural body wash from Deep Steep. This lavender and chamomile scented product contains certified essential oils, shea and cocoa butters, vitamins E and B5, and organic plant extracts. Best of all, it’s 100% natural and cruelty free. The full sized tube retails for $9.95.
The last item, a natural rose bath bomb from ZEN-ful, is the perfect product to help you unwind after a long spring day. These bath bombs, retailing for $5.50 each, are completely natural and contain rose essential oils.
Overall, I’m very impressed with the May 2013 SeasonsBox. The eyeshadow and nail polish were a nice treat and what girl doesn’t love a luxurious body wash and a soothing bath bomb? All of this month’s products are full sized which makes this subscription service more than worth the price. I did a rough calculation of the value of this month’s items, and the products combined retail for close to $48.
Subscription rates begin at $29.95 which seems like a lot but, as you can see from the May items, you get what you pay for. I can’t wait to see what SeasonsBox has in store for June!
Did you receive a SeasonsBox this month? What are your thoughts on it?
