Solshines360 is a box about letting go and lightening up which brings happiness. SolShines360 offers eco-friendly artisanal, organic skincare and home decor products. Items may include bath and home goods, women’s accessories and jewelry, and yummy food items with good for you ingredients.
I checked out the box before taking the first peek photo which is why items are moved around. I was curious about the box and could not wait to look at the products!
The theme is May Bloom Box.
The feel of the sun on your skin, the light in your eyes, days are longer, summer is just around the corner and you are ready to be your best self. Enjoy your box of unique artisanal products that will help lighten your mind, body, and soul. Welcome May!
The letter also includes the information on the brands in the May box.
I recognized a few brands from the May Pre-Launch Box. There are also a few new brands to me in the box. I am curious about the Fatco products.
The Earth Kiss Million Year Clay Facial Revitalize Bamboo Sheet Mask (1 mask, $2.99) has 85 plant micronutrients! The mask is energized with Himalayan Shilajit, which is a herb. The easy to use mask is applied on a clean face. Wait 15-20 minutes and then rinse off. The mask is cruelty-free, and Vegetarian Society approved. It is made in the UK.
I liked that SolShines360 included a body butter to go with the body wash. I am familiar with the Nubian Heritage Raw Shea Body Wash (3 oz, $2.00). The body wash has a pleasant scent from the frankincense and myrrh. The Nubian Heritage Raw Shea Butter Body Lotion (3 oz, $2.00) shares the same scent. The brand is cruelty-free, made in the USA, and uses fair trade and organic ingredients. It is made in the USA.
The Sarvas Superfood Gaia Greens (travel pack 1 serving, $3.33) has organic live food. Every ingredient in the Gaia Greens sample is organic except for the Shilajit. Subscribers that received the May pre-launch box could receive one of the following: Gala Greens, Superfruit C, or Cacao Plus.It can be used for weight loss, recovery, or after intense exercising. I was able to drink this in water and tolerate it. The taste was a pleasant green.
Here’s a skincare line that Paleo lovers will enjoy! The Paleo-certified FATCO skincare line has been featured on the Paleo Foundation website for including tallow from organic grass fed cows as one of those ingredients. That ingredient can be found in the FATCO Invigorating Body Butter (.3 oz, $2.99 each, $5.98 total) which is made in the USA. I tried it out and decided that it takes time to adjust to the formula. I had a hard time rubbing it in completely. I do think that people following the Paleo lifestyle will embrace this brand.
The FATCO Face Cream (.10 oz, $3.99 ea, $7.98 total) is an anti-aging cream that includes lavender and myrrh. I was not able to rub the cream fully into my face and blotted away the excess. I did not have enough time to let the oils soak in all the way. It has a light lavender scent. I am surprised that this is the first time I have come across this brand in a subscription box. It is perfect for people practicing the Paleo lifestyle or looking for natural alternatives for beauty products.
The information cards provide additional information about the benefits of tallow and being Paleo-certified. I am glad to see it included in the box because not everyone will be familiar with this type of product. It made me happy to read that they support the Farmer to Consumer Legal Defense Fund which our certified organic farm has been a member of for a few years. It’s a small world. FATCO is made in the USA.
The Eco Lips Rejuvenating Morocco Orange Spice Lip Balm (.25 oz, $4.99) is gmo-free, gluten-free, and cruelty-free. It is made with fair trade cocoa butter which helps ensure that cocoa farmers are making a livable wage. It went on smoothly and had an orange spice scent. The lip balm is handcrafted in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
SolShines360 stayed true to its concept and theme. Many of the ingredients renew and energize the body and mind. Supporting small companies that use natural and organic ingredients makes me feel good. The companies are passionate about their products. I would not expect a new, smaller subscription box to have a high value when working with small artisan companies. The value of the box is right around $30.00. The subscription is $36.00 plus $5.00 shipping which may scare off the value conscious subscriber. However, the brands are fantastic and contain natural and organic ingredients without the bad stuff. There is value in that too. I wish SolShines360 well in its future endeavors.
