Yay! I'm back from vacation! We had a blast this week but we did hit a snag on our last day. Ever booked a hotel room online, pulled into the parking lot, and then decide to forfeit the money you already paid and run? Yeah, well, that happened. I somehow managed to find a place that scared me so bad I cried at the thought of staying. Yup. It was that bad. I reported that death trap to the BBB real quick! Anyways, it's good to be home after that and I can finally dig into my July Terra Bella Box That makes me feel much better!
Terra Bella Box, who kindly sent me this box for review, is a monthly Eco beauty subscription. Now, They've recently made some big changes regarding some crucial things.To refresh your memory, here's all the details from the email the owner sent me last month.
"Starting in July we are introducing the Makeup Edit box. This box will contain only makeup items. It will allow subscribers to try out natural alternatives for their cosmetics--that are always cruelty free. We are working with some fantastic brands and we are very excited about this box. It will contain at least 3 items per month and will cost $29.95, including free shipping in the U.S. Our Canadian and Australian subscribers will pay a flat rate and subscribers in the rest of the world will pay actual shipping costs.
Also starting with the July box, we have reduced the number of items in our regular Terra Bella Box from 5-6 items per month to 3-4 items per month. The box will now cost $32.95 per month, which includes free shipping in the U.S. and flat rate shipping to Canada and Australia, and actual shipping costs for the rest of the world. This box will contain skincare, body care, hair, and bath items. *Please note that July is a transition month and will still contain a variety of these items AND makeup items--the true separation will occur in August.
Subscribers can switch between these 2 boxes any time they like (as long as they switch before the cutoff window--usually the 20th of the month.) You can still skip a month any time you like."
There has yet to be a Terra Bella Box that I have disliked and it amazes me. The first glimpse continues to make me giddy month after month. They have some stellar skills when it comes to curating a box! Want an added incentive to subscribe? Be sure to use coupon code DDGEXTRA at checkout and you'll find an extra bonus item in your first box!
Included is the usual, well made information card that tells you a bit about each product and brand featured in this month's box.
Sarah's Sweet Scrubs Pineapple & Lillikoi After Sun Lotion Bar --- Don't you just love lotion bars like this? I do! Made from all natural, handpicked organic ingredients from Kauai, Hawaii. It melts into skin on contact, nourishing and healing skin after a long day in the sun with ingredients like aloe, mango, cocoa & Shea butter, Samoan coconut oil, olive oil, Kauai beeswax and Hawaiian grown essential oils.
Ellison's Organics Nail Lacquer in 'Island Sunset' --- I've played with this polish brand before and quite liked it. This gorgeous matte finish polish is 5-Free which means it doesn't contain they typical harmful ingredients found in many other formulas. Even better, this beautiful shade was created exclusively for Terra Bella Box!
Skin Fix Margarita Sour Body Scrub --- How does this smell so freaking GOOD?! It's like a tropical drink for your skin. Made with Pink Himalayan Salt, sugar, Shea butter, coconut oil, grapeseed oil and a fragrant blend of essential oils. It scrubs away dead and dull skin, replenishes moisture, and nourishes skin. Did I mention how amazing it smells?!
Parlo Cosmetics Bahama Mama Lip Polish --- I think this is my favorite item this month! Parlo Cosmetics believes in simple ingredients in their products and they manage to do that really well! Their lip polish is 100% natural with skin-loving oils and waxes. It's applies so smoothly and isn't sticky or goopy in the least. The color is so pigmented and gorgeous too! A perfect punch of summer color!
Im pretty sure you all know what I think of this box, but I'll say it anyways - It's flipping fabulous! I cannot ever say enough about how well this box is put together and how completely mind blowing the products are. Terra Bella Box consistently delivers and that's why they remain my favorite Eco/Natural Beauty Box out there!
