I was so excited that my November 2013 Daily Dose of Green arrived in the mail today!! I loved my first box of DDoG and couldn’t wait to see what was in this month’s box!
Again, I love that the contents are directly inside the shipping box! No waste of another box!
Here’s the detail card for the items in my box.
Daily Dose of Green is an eco subscription box available for $15 per month
Beauty Without Cruelty – 2 fl oz each – $2.75
*Cruelty Free, Vegan, No Synthetic Fragrances*
I love trying shampoos and conditioners that are “natural” – hoping someday to find that product I can’t live without! We’ll see how this month goes 🙂
Eat Green Tea Edible Green Tea Leaves – 6 grams total – $1.50
This is the second time I have received a sample from Eat Green Tea – and to be perfectly honest, I’m not certain where the first sample ended up… I’m still not 100% about poring this over food, but the package did say they recommend with a smoothie – now that I could see… if only I was a smoothie person. Oh, the dilemma. Suggestions anyone?
Lauren Brooke Creme Foundation sample – $3(?)
This item was a little confusing to me, as with the three samples – the product colors are probably only applicable to 10% of people who received them. I will likely end up mixing a little of the cool into the neutral to try to match my skin tone, but would have no idea what color to purchase if I do end up liking this. While I do not expect them to send 16 different samples, a survey of “what type of skin do you have – light, medium, dark” would have been good to get three light skin colored samples. Am I making sense? Oh well. Still excited to try this item!
Two Degrees Chocolate Banana Bar – 1 bar – $2
Another chocolate item. I beginning to think this is going to be a regular occurrence with several subscription boxes. While the Husband loves it, I keep getting left out! Boo. How about some caramels or salt water taffy?! Hm.. maybe someday.
And this month’s Extra Products:
I really like how they add the extra products to the boxes. Wish I knew what everyone else was getting as their extras – feel free to share!
Bee All Natural Hand and Foot Salve (peppermint) – 1 oz – $3.31
I actually quite love this product as a hand cream – perfect timing as the temperatures are turning cold. The only complaint is the smell – I’m not the worlds biggest peppermint fan… I have a feeling I’ll get used to it though as I love how this makes my skin feel.
Bare Body Soaps Green Tea and Lemongrass Soap – 1 oz – $1.50
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the smell of this soap! Wish the hand and foot salve smelled this good… LOL
Redmond Trading Co. Real Salt – 0.53 oz total – $0.75
So this item was a little disappointing. Apparently the salt I have been using isn’t real? We use crushed sea salt and a grinder currently. I think we’re fine.
I paid $15 for my daily dose of green box and I received an estimated $14.81 worth of product. Definitely not as high value as my first box; however, close enough for me! The items I was disappointed in were the chocolate (again – stop with the chocolate everyone! LOL – the Husband enjoys though I guess) and the salt packets. I also wish the hand cream would have been a different scent, but it works amazing!
How was your November 2013 Daily Dose of Green box??
