Let’s see what’s inside the September 2018 “Binge” GlobeIn box!
Everything was shipped in a larger than usual green & white GlobeIn box.
A peek inside!
A small info booklet featured full color photos and background information on all of the products included in the box, as well as the artisans who created them.
Ceramic Popcorn Bowl, Tunisia ($30)
This beautiful stoneware popcorn bowl was painted and glazed entirely by hand via Tunisian artisans employed by Le Souk Ceramique. It measures 10 inches in diameter and has quite a bit of heft to it. (Less worries about eager little popcorn eaters knocking it over! 😉 ) It may look like a delicate piece of art that needs careful hand-washing, but it’s actually completely dishwasher and microwave safe. Yay!
Snuggle Socks, Peru and Pakistan ($13)
These super soft “snuggle socks” from Maggie’s Organics are indeed VERY snuggly! They’re made with 89% organic cotton, 10% nylon, and 1% spandex. I love the pretty purple-y pink & cream striped pattern that extends right into the ultra cozy knit lining inside. They can be worn with the cuff rolled down, or pulled all the way up for a little extra coverage. Love ’em!
This certified vegan & cruelty free dry shampoo helps to absorb excess oils, volumize, and refresh the hair and scalp in between showers. The powder is made in small batches using 100% natural ingredients including kaolin clay, arrowroot, sodium bicarbonate, rhassoul clay, coconut extract, and essential oils. To use, simply shake into hand & apply to roots, let set for 10-15 minutes, then style as usual.
Palm Leaf Remote Boat, Mexico ($15)
Like the signature palm baskets that are included in many GlobeIn boxes, this “remote boat” was woven entirely by hand. It has a rectangular base that gradually builds up to a more curved, oval-ish opening at the top. Use it for your remote, keys, mail, or anything else that needs to be corralled into one easy to find place.
** I believe subscribers were to receive ONE of the items below (I received all 3 for review). **
I LOVE this kettlecorn! I’ve received it in many other subscription boxes and I can’t get enough. Sweet & salty and super tasty. Plus, it has just 140 calories per bag.
This dental floss is infused with coconut oil and features soft microfiber filaments designed to scrub your teeth while giving you a hint of tropical flavor.
A single origin, medium dark coffee from Sipi Falls, Uganda. It’s made with 100% whole bean arabica and has notes of both citrus & caramel.
I wasn’t too sure what to expect from a “Binge” themed box, but GlobeIn put together a fun assortment of items ideal for a night of serious couch sitting. The pretty stoneware bowl was my favorite, along with the cozy snuggle socks. With the addition of the kettlecorn, I’m all set to veg! — Remember, for a limited time you can save $10 on your first Premium box with coupon code “WELCOME“!
