Fruits & Passion Live Your Passion Box August 2016 box

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!

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.

Everything in the August box. I have a quarterly subscription box, just so I can get some fun soapy goodies once in a while. Love that feature.

Cucina Lime Zest and Cypress Hand Soap with Olive Oil ($10.30) This is a glass bottle, which was surprising (but perfect for refilling). It’s moisturizing with olive oil and has a fresh zesty scent!\

One of the things I totally LOVE about this subscription is that if you like the fragrance you can get it in other types of items – which is really totally key. This is like an upscale version of B&BW and my new home obsession.

Beaute Gentle Papaya Peeling ($17) So this is exactly like Flash Facial – you rub it in your skin and it balls up with your dead skin cells to exfoliate.  I really never know if this actually works or not (like it does ball up for sure, but does it really exfoliate?) so I’m going to use the entire bottle on my lower legs to experiment.

Fruits & Passion Pear Peony 24H Moisturizing Cream ($7) Pear, nectarine, honeysuckle, and peony. It’s delicious. In addition to the shea butter and grapeseed oil for moisturizing it uses melon, pear, peach, grapefruit, guava, blackberry and coconut extracts to help soften and enrich skin.

Cucina Rosemary and Cardamom Dish Detergent Refill ($26.50) Soap glorious soap! If you can imagine how great rosemary and cardamom soap smells, it’s about 10x lovelier in person.

Fruits & Passion Shea Butter Face Mask ($4) I tried this out, and it was shockingly one of the least enriching sheet masks I’d ever used. There’s a lot of value in this box and I recommend it, but I kinda wish they’d stop with the face masks. It’s not my favorite part of this subscription. I just want soap and home goodies.

Fruit & Passion Nourishing Butter ($18.50) As soon as I say I just want stuff for my house, I open this deluscious (it’s a word) coconut monoi creamy light body butter and OMG I love it.

I’m now also desperate to try vanilla pineapple.

FYI – You can switch between the DARE and LIVE boxes and add-on products for free shipping! I was totally unclear on how this works – you get free shipping on orders during your subscription period. I’m not sure if that means that they hold your items until your box ships or just ships them. I have been waiting and waiting for some sort of add-to-box period and then my box showed up. So that’s good to know. I’ll test it out in the interim, because we’re sure to need extra dish soap, and we are totally currently addicted to Cucina (and we love the large refills + biodegradeability!).

The retail value was over $80, but just like Bath & Body Works, Fruits & Passion has constant sales, so the actual value is probably a bit lower. I really like this for a quarterly subscription – we think it might be a bit of an overload as a monthly box, especially if you have other subscriptions that ship bath and body items.

    Cucina soap are my favorite! I use the hand soap (in different fragrance) not only in my kitchen, but also in all my bathrooms. It’s perfect! It doesn’t leave your hand dry, and leave just a bit of scent on your skin. And it stays on your hand, not on the food you are chopping.
