I am LOVING my mailman this week. Yesterday’s “fun mail” was the May “Daily Dose of Green” box.
This is a new subscription for me, so I was super pumped to see what was inside. The boxes are $15/month (shipping included) and contain “samples of natural, organic, green, Eco-friendly and vegan products to your door in attractive earth friendly packaging”. Yay!
What I saw when I opened the box — it matched my dress! Neat.
My first real “look”. I was pleasantly surprised with how much stuff was packed inside the box. Definitely a good sign.
I’m not a fan of heels, but I suppose this is more of a flat. Zing! Aaaanywhoo… This here is one of those paper seed dealies that you plant and (supposedly) watch purty flowers grow. Cute, but I’ll believe it when I see it.
Poppy’s Natural All Purpose Cleaning Powder Whenever I see “Poppy” I think of that episode of Seinfeld where Poppy pees on Jerry’s couch. Perhaps if Jerry had some of this cleaning powder… Ahem… So I’m actually kind of excited about this product. It smells minty and I’ve been looking for something “greener” to clean the bathroom sinks with. This may just be exactly what I need. Woohoo! Thanks Poppy!
Health Warrior Chia Bar Chocolate? Peanut butter? VEGAN? I’m sold.
Valenti Organics Dark Raw Chocolate Bar Soap Totally thought this was another edible treat at first. But nope. Soap. It definitely smells chocolate-y, and there’s even a chocolate chip poking out of the side of the thing. I’m just not so sure about using it to wash with. We’ll see.
Be Natural Organics Aloe Leaf Lotion No subscription box is complete without a sample of lotion. This is that sample. I do appreciate the pretty little bag it came in though. 🙂
Aletheia Skin Care Products A teeny pot of exfoliant & a tube of tea tree face wash. I already have a face wash that I use religiously, but I suppose I could give these a whirl.
7th Heaven Moroccan Clay Exfoliating Mask & Bee Organic Body Butter I haven’t used a facial mask since high school, so it’ll be fun to try one out again. Plus this one is all natural/organic. Gnarly, dude. The body butter suggests using it on cracked heels. Heck. Yes. I have some seriously rough heels, so I hope this stuff does the trick.
Circle of Friends Chocolate-scented Shampoo & Melon-scented Conditioner A weird combo, but I guess kids wouldn’t mind. Of course, my girls are only 9 months and VERY lacking in the hair department, so hopefully these don’t expire(?) before they have a use for ’em.
So that’s my first Daily Dose of Green box! Not bad for $15 (actually, I snagged a promo code & got mine for $10). I like that they sent such a nice variety of products and that most of them will get used. I also really like that they send you a profile to fill out to help them choose products that will better suit you and your family (Do you have kids? Own a pet?). Oh, and major points for the products being vegan. Saves me a lot of label reading. 😉
