It has been TWO weeks since I have posted about any beauty boxes, meanwhile I have a stack of unopened ones sitting on my coffee table thanks to the craziness of last week! It’s almost like Christmas again since I don’t actually remember what is in each box! Total first world problem right? April’s SeasonsBox is about getting excited for Spring and indulging the senses in all things sweet. What I love about April’s box is the focus on the natural and helping out women in need.
This pastel coloured scarf was hand-loomed by a member of the Former Women Fuel Wood Carriers Association in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Connected in Hope is a non-profit organization that strives to empower women in Ethiopia to rise above poverty through sustainable income development.
Thoughts: I received two scarves, so I wanted to show them both in their lovely Spring colours. I love that each of these scarves has the name of the woman that made it. It makes the scarves that much more special.
Price: $32.00 each
This citrus-scented cream deodorant is completely natural and really works! It includes over ten essential oils that are deodorizing, antibacterial and anti-fungal. No aluminum, no parabens and no yellow shirt stains! Just rub a dime-size amount on to your underarms.
Thoughts: I am very excited about using this deodorant cream as I am not a fan of traditional deodorants like Lady’s Speedstick or Secret. It smells very much like essential oils which I find quite nice. It absorbs into the skin very quickly leaving a pleasantly dry surface. This is also made by a Canadian company right in Toronto so yay for that!
This foam applicator features a firm, 2 in 1 tip, making it super easy to apply and blend liquid foundation, bronzer or concealer like an expert. This is crafted with a recycled aluminum ferrule and a sleek bamboo handle.
Thoughts: I was SO EXCITED to get this! I haven’t been able to find it at London Drugs yet, so when I saw this in the sneak peek I could not wait! The shape is perfect for applying foundation around my nose and I keep switching between this and my faux Beauty Blender for foundation application.
These are made from 100% natural specialty honey from Prince Edward Island! These are a wonderful supplement are ideal for anyone on the go.
Thoughts: I drink tea almost daily so these are perfect! I don’t like using white sugar or alternatives like Splenda so it’s always honey or raw cane sugar for me. These are so adorable that I will be saving them for special occasions!
Total Value of April SeasonsBox: $55.98
I really enjoyed April’s Seasonsbox, especially the scarves knowing that each one empowers women in Ethiopia. There are other scarves to choose from so make sure to browse the Connected in Hope site. The deodorant is amazing and I might have to stock up!
