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.
The information sheet this month introduces some of the most popular products.
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 Sea Salt & Amalfi Lemon Refill (1L for $28.50 CAD) This is a different scent than what I received in the DARE box last month, and I think I prefer this one! It’s a fresh lemon scent which always yells CLEAN! at me. These refills are huge, and at around $30 tax-in, they’re the high value item in both boxes so far.
Note from Brandy: If this looks familiar, this brand appeared last year in a Little Lace Box!
Sanguinelli Orange and Fennel Dish Detergent ($9) This smells soooo good, and I don’t even like fennel. It smells very citrusy but with a bit of spice to it. This is also a HUGE bottle and will probably last me eight years given how rarely I hand-wash dishes.
Honey Pack ($18) This is a facial treatment that has honey in it, and smells like it too! (And looks like it… it looks edible.) This is a mask to soothe tired skin.
Grapefruit Guava Shower Gel ($12.50) I hate the taste of grapefruit, but I love anything grapefruit-scented. This shower gel reminds me a lot of The Body Shop’s grapefruit fragrance, but the guava makes it a bit sweeter. This worked really well in the shower; it lathers up nice and doesn’t dry out your skin.
Like in the DARE box, I was also sent three more sheet masks to try!
Invigorating ($2) With green tea to hydrate and revitalise.
Purifying ($2) With seaweed to help purify and cleanse.
Anti-Aging ($2) With collagen to firm up skin.
The LIVE box had a combined value of $74 (this is about $60US)! They promise a $70+ value and they definitely kept their promise. There was some overlap between the DARE and LIVE boxes — both included the masks and Cucina soap. I don’t see this as a subscription I would keep to monthly, just because there is so much product and I couldn’t possibly get through all of it in just a month (especially the soaps!) but the quarterly subscription sounds like it would work better for me.
FYI – You can switch between the DARE and LIVE boxes and add-on products for free shipping!
