The Sam & Lance Empower-Her Box is a quarterly subscription box that features a consciously curated collection of products by women-owned brands — all delivered right to your doorstep every season.
Each box will consist of 6-7 full sized sustainable, ethically-made products created solely by women-run businesses (50% of which will be BIPOC-owned). Every item is carefully chosen to help contribute to your life in an intentional way without adding clutter to your home. All items will be both cruelty-free and vegan-friendly.
The box itself is environmentally friendly/recyclable and the ink is even vegetable based. At least 1% of Sam & Lance’s profits are donated to non-profits aligned with their core beliefs and equality of helping women. They also partner with Trees for the Future (TREES) to plant a tree for ever order placed on SΛM & LΛNCE in order to offset the carbon footprint of shipping.

Subscriptions are $59.95/quarter plus shipping, or less with an annual plan. — For a limited time, you can save $5 on your first box with coupon code WENDYROSE!
Let’s see what’s in my Summer 2021 Sam & Lance Empower-Her Box!
Everything was shipped in a brown box with a green floral design and Sam & Lance logo on top.
A peek inside!
An info card listed all of the items inside, along with a brief brand introduction/product description for each one.
Mmm… The spicy cinnamon chai scent of this hand sanitizer has me SO ready for autumn! Handcrafted in Georgia, this 100% natural moisturizing sanitizing spray is made with a blend of alcohol, witch hazel, water, avocado oil, and skin-safe fragrance oil. Although this is a summer box, I was excited to find an item that feels more like fall (my fave season). 🙂
Rooted Woman Nail Polish in “Favored” ($15 value)
Not gonna lie, this one feels a bit autumn-y too. 😉 (And I love it!) “Favored” is a pretty shade that falls somewhere between maroon and… maybe a dark mauve? Whatever it is, I’m a fan and my daughters have already requested to try it out as well. Every polish made by Rooted Woman is vegan-friendly, gluten free, 10-free, and non-toxic. Yay!
The Future is Bamboo Cotton Swabs ($5 value)
Okay, so cotton swabs aren’t exactly the most exciting item to find in a subscription box but they’re certainly useful. I may be in the minority here, but I love getting “basic”, practical items like this because I know it’ll get used and it saves me a trip to the store. 😉 Plus, these aren’t your ordinary cotton swabs. — They’re made with 100% biodegradable cotton & bamboo sourced from well managed bamboo forests and use minimal packaging with a carbon offset program. The package contains 400 super soft, vegan-friendly swabs.
Cheeks Ahoy Beauty Cloth ($6 value)
Speaking of “super soft”… This Cheeks Ahoy beauty cloth feels incredibly soft, velvety, and luxurious. It was handmade in Canada using a blend of 55% premium hemp and 45% bamboo, which when combined makes one of the most sustainable fabrics in the world. The hypo-allergenic cloth is great for oil cleansing, light exfoliation, and removing makeup with ease. To clean, simply toss in the washing machine with like colors and tumble (or line) dry.
Imaya Beauty Retinoic Face Oil ($60 value)
Imaya Beauty was founded in collaboration with the Kokama community in Peru to help preserve the biodiversity of the Amazon Rainforest. Handcrafted by Amazonian women and sustainably harvested, this 100% pure aguaje oil is designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines, sun spots and blemishes, while leaving the skin radiant and soft. It’s suitable for all skin types, including dry, sensitive and acne-prone skin. To use, simply apply the oil morning and night after thoroughly cleansing and toning the face.
Sequoia Sweetgrass Bath Bomb ($7 value)
Sequoia is a Proudly Indigenous brand that is 100% owned and operated by Indigenous women. The sweetgrass-scented bath bomb above is made with 99% natural ingredients and leaves behind no residue (unlike a lot of the bombs you’d find at the mall 😉 ). It’s handcrafted, paraben-free, vegan-friendly, and smells like a fresh spring day.
I am SO impressed with the Summer 2021 Sam & Lance Empower-Her Box! It was nice to receive a collection of products that were all not only sourced from women/BIPOC-owned companies, but also vegan and eco-friendly. My favorite items were the Chanvre Naturals Hand Sanitizer, Rooted Woman Nail Polish, The Future is Bamboo Cotton Swabs, and Sequoia Sweetgrass Bath Bomb. The total retail value of everything in the Summer 2021 box was an even $100! 😀 — Remember, for a limited time, you can save $5 on your first box with coupon code WENDYROSE!
