If there is one request we get more than any other, it’s to share our new favourite healthy tips. From natural make-up, healthy crisps (yes, there really is such a thing) to exercise fads – we’ve been asked it all. Well, a girl can only know so much and thankfully, just as we nearly run out of new ideas – came The BOX (although you might know it by its old moniker of The BOX by Lohasia.)
The brainchild of the wonderful guys and gals at healthy living site intheLoop.com, The BOX works on a subscription basis. With each box containing over $200 worth of products, each box is just $50 for one, or $160 for a year. So what does this mean exactly? Well, it means that you choose how often you want it – although its released every quarter, you can choose to receive it just once or a million times– what ever you like! Every quarter the fully recyclable box is crammed full of lovingly curated trial sized, high quality, natural, healthy and eco-conscious products, designed to bring a little more wellbeing into your life. What’s more, they promise that each of the products is chosen for their effectiveness, on 100% integrity and have absolutely no harmful ingredients. I mean, does it get much better than that? Intrigued, we gave the August edition a try and here are our highlights.
Viva La Papa! Exotic Sweet Potato Chips
I’ve got to say, I’m a real sucker for chips but I didn’t expect these to be as good as they were. They were delicious! Colourful, crispy, crunchy, salty with a tang of sweet – I was almost licking the packet they were so good. What’s more they are packed full of Vitamin A, vegetarian, gluten free with no trans fats. Ideal.
Phalada pure&sure Organic Coconut Oil
With everyone from supermodel Miranda Kerr to top nutritionists waxing lyrical about the benefits of coconut oil, it’s become my go-to. While I’ve found some to be a bit too glupy to cook with, this is helpfully the consistency of regular oil. What’s more, it doubled as a great hair mask!
Rooted Beauty Orange Vanilla Lip Butter
Whenever I see a product has shea butter in, I know it’s going to be good and this lip butter sure didn’t disappoint. With eco-friendly paper packaging that rather cutely can be composted once used, this lip-lickingly delicious flavoured balm gave my lips a soft, glossy pout.
This is just the highlights! To discover what other natural goodies await, head on over to www.boxbylohasia.net. Remember, this box will only be available for the month of August so if you want to get your hands on these natural delights, you had better be quick!
