October’s Kloverbox has finally arrived! — Apparently there were a few issues with their partnering brands this month, so the box was shipped later than usual.
If you’re not aware, Kloverbox is a monthly subscription box that features eco-friendly products ranging anywhere from snacks and personal products to makeup, household goods, and more. The purpose of the box is to introduce you to “cleaner” versions of the products you use on a daily basis. The subscription is $25/month (shipping included) or less with longer commitments. (Psst… You can save 10% off any length subscription when you use my exclusive coupon code “2LRB10” at checkout!!)
Let’s see what’s in the October 2015 Kloverbox!
A handwritten note thanked me for my patience. No worries!
October’s theme was “A Pinch of Patience (ha!), a Dash of Kindness, a Spoonful of Laughter, and a Heap of Love!”. Unlike previous boxes, this one focused less on beauty and more on lifestyle products. As always, the info card included descriptions, retail prices, and discounts for each item.
Foxy & Winston Organic Kitchen Towel in Teal Hedgehog ($16) – Ahhh! I love this! Subscribers received one of four different prints and I’m pretty sure I got the cutest design. This 100% certified organic kitchen towel was screen printed using water based, non-toxic inks. It measures 18 x 27 inches and features a handy hanging loop. Foxy & Winston textiles are designed in Brooklyn and manufactured in India using fair trade practices.
Bee’s Wrap Sandwich Wrap in Clover Print ($10) – A sustainable, eco-friendly alternative to conventional plastic wrap, Bee’s Wrap can be reused for up to one year. It’s made with beeswax, organic cotton, jojoba oil, and tree resin. Just fold your sandwich up in the cloth, tie the string around the wooden bee button, and go. When you’re ready to eat, the cloth unfolds to act as a placemat. While I like the concept just fine, the cloth has a really strong scent that’s pretty overpowering. I don’t know if it’s the jojoba oil and/or the tree resin, but it’s not something I’d want co-mingling with my food. :/
Red Flower Hand & Face Towelettes ($1.50) – These vegan, cruelty-free towelettes can be used to clean both the hands and face. They’re infused with purifying essential oils to “cleanse, moisturize, and awaken the senses”. Products like are great to keep in your bag for times when a real hand washing just isn’t possible.
Goodie Girl Quinoa Chocolate Chip Cookies ($1) – I was kinda bummed to see that these contained dairy, since Kloverbox usually tends to include vegan-friendly snacks. Ah well. My kiddos will definitely enjoy ’em.
I think October was definitely an off month for Kloverbox. I don’t know if it was due to it being late/them having issues with their vendors, but it just wasn’t up to par with their regular boxes. I don’t think it was bad by any means, especially since I love receiving lifestyle products… The towel is adorable and I’ll definitely use the wipes. I wish the sandwich wrap didn’t have such a funky smell, but what can ya do. The overall value was just under $30, which is a little more than the monthly cost of the box, but it’s the lowest value I think Kloverbox has ever had. Again, not bad, just not as awesome as previous boxes (September’s had a total value of over $80!). Eh, everyone has an off month, so it’s cool… I’m still a fan. 😉Browse more Lifestyle Boxes in my Subscription Box Directory
