Sparaj sent me this subscription box for my review.
I was so excited to be able to review this new spa box! I think everyone has really been begging for the spa ritual/experience niche to be filled and Sparaj is a wonderful wonderful box! Trying new products is great, but it is really way more awesome when everything works together, and Sparaj absolutely exceeded my expectations, which were quite high! To celebrate the launch of this box, Sparaj is giving away a pre-launch box to one lucky reader! Hooray! Details on the end of the post! One of the great things about Sparaj is that you can order a one off box for yourself or as a gift and not worry about the subscriptions. Of course if you’re totally into spa boxes (which you should be, I am so into the spa experience this month!) you can subscribe!
I was excited about Sparaj just from the name. It sounded so exotic and the owners confirmed that it’s designed to evoke feelings of royalty and paradise. Sounds like it to me! Every box has a featured destination, and this box is Maya Bay in Koh Phi Phi Leh Thailand. I so love Southeast Asia but I’ve never been to Thailand. Sounds like the perfect escape to me! This particular box is available until September 30, and you can save $5 with code SPLURGE5! UPDATE: The pre-launch has now sold out but you can order the November box! Be sure to do that before it sells out too!
The Description: Get an exclusive mix of spa, body care, home wellness and aromatherapy products from Sparaj’s monthly featured partner and explore the spectrum of products from Asian producers. These are gift boxes, not subscriptions, but a welcome newcomer for a category with few contenders!
The Price: $40 per month
September 2013 Sparaj Pre-Launch
Outer Box I loved the outside of this box! I was excited when it came in the mail and I saved it to open after the kids went to bed because I really wanted to enjoy it. I just loved the stamp!
This was very professionally wrapped & this photo doesn’t capture how pretty it is!
The goods! I was totally surprised to find all the items contained in this great little tote! The information card definitely caught my eye. I want to go THERE!
I thought this was a fantastic presentation!
Info Card The inside has all the information on each product but I was captured by this stunning view. Can’t wait to experience this destination via some great spa rituals!
Siam Botanicals Organic Facial Kit All natural ingredients and this stuff smells great. I loved it! The tag is even in Thai but there are complete directions included. I will be using this box in my bathroom to store things once this runs out!
This kit included a face serum, cleanser, coconut sugar scrub, toning mist, and a washcloth.
Serevana Jasmine Bar Soap Made with shea butter, sweet almond oil, grape seed oil, rice bran oil, and jasmine essential oil. This soap smelled fantastic, was very luxurious, and even the wrapping amde me happy!
Harnn Cymbopogon Body Souffle & Body Wash Another totally amazing scent! This was a very light moisturizer, which I appreciated, because it soaked right in & didn’t sit on my skin. The lemongrass & hibiscus scent was really intoxicating. I’m smelling myself now.
Breathe Mini Dew Drop Diffuser I loved this! It’s so gorgeous! The oil diffuses up the cotton into the flower! And it changes color! Amazing! Plus the scent is frangipani and I think I’d totally forgotten what it smells like. I love this so much it’s sitting right above me at the computer.
Asia Herb Association Plai Herbal Hot Ball I have never seen anything like this, I think it’s awesome. You heat it in the microwave and roll it on your body to release tension (like you would a tennis ball, but this is WAY better!). You can get 15-20 uses out of this ball. It has camphor in it so it should be actually effective in releasing muscle aches.
Breathe Diffuser Just a quick photo update to show what the diffuser looks like as the oil wicks through it. it’s amazing! It smells so fantastic and when the oil has been depleted, I’m going to stash it in my closet to scent everything. It’s so so so brightened my day!
