Fruits & Passion has started a new subscription box, in two flavours: DARE is for new and innovative products, and LIVE is for the fan favourites that everyone knows and loves. Skip a box, switch between themes, or change the frequency — it’s super easy to do! I’ll be reviewing one of each box to see which I like more. I’m a big F&P fan and their Cucina soap is a staple in my kitchen!
FYI – This is a Canadian subscription but they do ship to the US! Use the drop-down location menu at the top to get on the right site if you land on the wrong one.
There isn’t an information sheet with a product/price breakdown but instead summarises the subscription options. You can try out one box for $45, which is somewhat silly because you can also just subscribe and cancel it if it’s not for you.
Everything was packaged in paper and bubble wrap as needed — there was more paper stuffed in the box to keep items from shifting. So many things to unwrap, and I spotted the Cucina right away!
Cucina Lime Zest & Cypress Refill (1L for $28.50 CAD) When I moved into my apartment six years ago, one of my housewarming gifts was a set of the Cucina soap and lotion for my kitchen. This is a new scent I haven’t tried before, and the refill will last me a very long time!
Note from Brandy: If this looks familiar, this brand appeared last year in a Little Lace Box!
Coconut Monoi Shower Cream ($12.50 CAD) I love coconut scents, so I can’t wait to try this in the shower! It’s a cleansing cream that keeps the skin moisturised even after you rinse it off.
Field Berries 24H Moisturising Butter ($5, travel size) This body cream is a small size to easily toss into a purse or bag. The scent is pretty light, but it’s a nice berry scent and isn’t greasy.
Aura House Diffusion System ($22.50) and Scented Capsule ($6.50) — available as a set for $20 This is Fruits & Passion’s answer to the wax tart phenomenon headlined by Scentsy. The unit is compact and sleek, and the scent capsules are much larger. My friend has been envious of my Scentsy warmers for a while so this is going to be the perfect gift for her! The scented capsule is Tropical Rhythm which is described as having notes of peach, mango, and grapefruit.
I was also sent two sheet masks!
Vitamin B Hydro Gel Face Mask ($3) Free of parabens! Love it. This is meant to restore moisture in your skin.
Brightening Pearl Face Mask ($3) This has pearl extract in it to help firm up skin.
Head Massager ($4.50) Oh my gosh, this looks hilarious and terrifying. I’ve never used one before! This is designed to target pressure points on your head to relieve and massage.
The DARE box had a combined value of $76.50 (this is about $60US)! They promise a $70+ value and they definitely kept their promise. I’m excited to try the LIVE box next month to see how they differ. I will use most of the items in this box and I got an awesome birthday gift for my friend whose birthday is next month, so I’m definitely pleased. I also really liked that all of the items included were items that are currently for sale — nothing was discontinued or marked down as clearance.
FYI – You can switch between the DARE and PASSION boxes and add-on products for free shipping!
