Mia Tempo sent me this subscription box for my review.

I just went to a spa and had a whole body treatment! Not really! I just took some me time with the September Mia Tempo Signature Box. I was so delighted when I unpacked this box that I immediately went and sampled nearly every product. And I totally needed it. I feel great and refreshed and really truly enjoyed taking some time for myself. Mia Tempo is absolutely on my list as a must try box!

September 2013 Mia Tempo Signature Box

Mia Tempo arrived in a gorgeous chocolate brown box and the inside was like opening a beautifully wrapped gift. Instead of feeling bad about messing up the paper I tore right into it. I was so excited that it was so beautiful, I knew the items inside would be great!

Mia Tempo came with two information cards – one was a welcome card with general information.

The other information card was specific to this box and explained that the Buffalo Gal Organics items were produced exclusively for this box! I also received a spa treatment menu and a 20% off coupon for additional Buffalo Gal products!


Tea Forte – Cinnamon & Raspberry I’m not a tea drinker but these smelled wonderful. The cinnamon smelled so good that I put it in a pot to scent my home. I am saving the caffeine-free raspberry for my daughter. She likes her me time too (she’s 4 but I encourage relaxation!).

Moroccan Fig Bath Salts These smelled great! I didn’t take a bath last night so I haven’t used them, but they are scented with fig and rose petals. Very yummy. I did see this morning the suggestion to stop up your shower and put some in the basin to scent the air.

Paddywax Candle – Jane Austen This gorgeous candle is from the Paddywax “Library” collection and is scented with a gardenia, tuberose, and jasmine blend. It’s delicious!


Buffalo Gal Organics Moroccan Fig Body Scrub This was another custom-blended item. I loved the texture of this creamy scrub. I thought it was very unique. It is a cream base with sea salts, charcoal, and poppy and blueberry seeds. All natural!

Wild Carrot Herbals Wild Rose Mask I’m normally not a rose fan but all the rose scented items in this box were fantastic. Nothing was too-heavily scented and was relaxing instead of being cloying. Maybe I am actually a rose fan and didn’t know it! My face felt fantastic after this mask – so smooth. I loved this mask!


Buffalo Gal Organics Moroccan Fig Lotion This was a mildly scented lotion and went on very lightly, perfect for after the bath. My skin is still hydrated and was never greasy.

Wild Carrot Herbals Rose Eye Cream This was an extremely hydrating eye cream and very lightly scented with rose. I have a sensitive face (especially my eye area) and was not irritated one bit.


MyChelle Dermaceuticals Mini Kit I received 3 trial size items from the new-to-me MyChelle natural skin care line. I was having such a great time in the shower (nearly forgot to wash my hair) that I forgot to use the Creamy Pumpkin Cleanser and the Tropical Skin Smoother, but I’m looking forward to trying them. I tested the Ultra Hyaluronic Hydrating Serum and my face felt smooth and plumped.

I thought Mia Tempo was just a fabulous box and I was so relaxed after using all the products. I felt so good and not a crabby patty like I was shortly before!

I don’t have a price rundown on this box because everything was custom blended but after reviewing the prices on Buffalo Gal Organics and similar items I would say it’s a great value for the all-natural organic items that I received and the curation of the box. Plus it is so much easier and less expensive than an actual spa trip! I loved the September Mia Tempo Signature Box and completely recommend it. Look for Signature boxes at Mia Tempo in October!

    true… can’t wait for your blog post! i hope you have a relaxing time away! 🙂

  • Ashley Wasnick

    🙂 thanks!! i’m glad you like the question! i’m trying to choose between a box like Mia Tempo and Beauty Army… with one you get several full-size spa like products every three months for around $60, and the other, you choose six sample-size products per month for about $12. i can’t decide which is “better.” i currently subscribe to both types and truly do like them both (Escape and Saffron Rouge), but I can’t decide which i prefer!!! grrr… so tough!! i love trying new things all the time… just not sure if one-time use foil packets are worth more than the luxury type boxes.

      well, i like birchbox for the value, i know you can pick your own samples on beauty army, and that was cool and i really liked the stuff i got there, but it does reduce a lot of serendipity.

  • Ashley Wasnick

    Do you think it’s best to receive a monthly box of small samples or a quarterly big box like this with full-size products?

    • Brandy

      Ooooooh this is a great question! I’m totally going to use it for a blog post next week while I’m away for a few days!!! It’s pretty much personal preference. If you want to get great prices on full size products and just take whatever box you subscribe to, their curation, you will want full size. if you want to try everything yourself and then purchase it on your own (or at a discount), then go for samples! I like both really. Usually the full-size products are really good and are an awesome value. The samples I really enjoy because you can try products that they wouldn’t send out as full size products. Like Dr Jart Ceramidin cream is fantastic. Also there’s spa stuff (like the box you’re reading about) that I would never really go out and purchase on my own but it’s just so fun to get and use. WDYT??

    I loved my first Mia Tempo box! Incredibly fun and relaxing. Though disappointed that my bonus was a brush set found at Target for 4.99. I would have loooooved that Mychelle kit worth so much more!

  • Karen

    Everything sounds amazing! Guh, I would love those products. Definitely a great me-time box.

    I’m so glad I discovered this subscription – I’ve never heard of it before. Thanks!
