The Popsugar Must Have Editors come up with inspirations every month which guide the box curation. The April box is inspired by “Reset, Natural, Healing, Clean, Grow, Spiritual.”

The card also gives brief summaries of each item and why they were selected!

Everything in the April box!

MORNING CULTURE Dipped Bamboo Cutting Board ($22) I love bamboo cutting boards! They’re durable and made from sustainable materials and clean up great. This one doubles as a serving tray, and we’ve already used it a few times for wine time snackies! You can use the cut-out to nestle a bowl or mug.

The information card notes that it’s dipped in food-grade paint, but I’d say that it’s sprayed on. The coverage is a bit uneven on my board but it doesn’t make much of a difference when it’s in use.

The cutting board measures 12 x 5 1/2 inches.

MAKERSKIT Crystal Sand Art Terrarium Kit ($32) I’m so excited for this! Have you checked out my Miroja reviews? I’m totally into an easy low-key craft project that anyone can achieve.

Step 1 is a success already!

This craft kit comes with complete instructions (and the single tool you might need – I didn’t use it at all).

Here’s all the raw materials to create your own Crystal Terrarium.

The crystal is a beautiful chunky amethyst!

To assemble the terrarium you just snip off the corners of the bags and layer in the sand. I went for an uneven look, and I like the way it turned out!

I topped it with the included moss and the crystal.

This is pretty, fun, and natural – I loved it! It doesn’t hurt that purple is my favorite color, either.

When checking out the Makers Kit site I was bummed to see that they no longer offer a monthly box. However – they included a coupon for $36 off the Makerskit Craft Box Limited Edition (regularly $50). The shipping was free, making the box just $14. I recommend using your code ASAP in case it gets out.

Tonic Australia Lavender Sachets ($15)

These sachets scented the box, and it was such a nice experience opening it! They’re made with 100% cotton gorgeously printed packets and filled to the brim with lavender flowers before being stitched up.  I like placing lavender sachets in my undie and nightie drawer – the scent is so calming!

The Cottage Greenhouse Carrot & Neroli Rich & Repair Body Wash ($22) I love the total packaged look of this body wash! I was thrilled to hear about this new brand from Margot Elena – the creator of TokyoMilk, Lollia, Library of Flowers, and Love & Toast (some of my fave scenty brands!).

This is a combo body oil/wash and it’s quite thin.  The only thing I’d change about this product is to have a lid like the similar product in the November box (also FYI the seal underneath the lid is a bit hard to remove if you’re already in the shower!).  It foams gently and is actually quite lightly scented. The formula is paraben-free, gluten-free, and never animal tested. The carrot oil in the wash is full of beta-carotene, and Vitamins A, B, D, & E and it also contains beet root extract, coconut oil, cocoa butter & honey.

A coupon code was included for 30% off an order!

Nourish Snacks Holy Habanero ($1.99) I thought this was a bit odd, because Nourish Snacks makes so many flavors, yet they chose to include the spiciest one! I liked the habanero seasoning because I like it hot, but not everyone will feel the same way.

The corn is fire roasted and naturally seasoned. It’s gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan.

They’re a tiny bit messy!

Better to eat from a bowl (or straight out the package!).

COCOLAB Cocofloss ($8) Flavors may vary – I received delicious mint, but the info card hints at tropical fruit flavors (strawberries, cara cara orange, and wild coconuts). I have to say that this is the best, prettiest package for floss ever. It can’t be topped!

This floss is infused with coconut oil and uses microfibers to gently scrub your teeth. Mine felt nice and clean!

I’m currently having a FLOSS PARTAY! Cocofloss has their own flosscription! I might have to try it out – why not incentivize an every day routine with a little fun?!

Special Extra Sensodyne PRONAMEL Strong & Bright, Extra Fresh Toothpaste ($5.99) What’s floss without paste?

This sulfate-free toothpaste is designed to strengthen your tooth enamel and protect against everyday acids.

I actually totally loved this box and it was one of my favorites of all time – to me, the focus was on brightening up the little things – a fresh scent in the shower, a fun taste when flossing, a little joy on your desk, a pop of color and a little spice for a snack, and a calming scent on your clothes. Accordingly because this box was about the little things the value was an atypically lower $102, which is still fantastic!

    I received my box a few days ago. Loved the scents!My terrarium arrived in one piece.

    I am disappointed in the cutting board. I felt that my cutting board was rushed to make shipment. It still smells like paint. The description stated dipped, but my board has paint on the one side and the sides of the cutting board. I don’t think the paint was sprayed on my board because the back side has what looks like a couple of brush strokes from trying to paint the sides. The paint is uneven too. The paint on the top and sides do not lined up. I also need to sand down the cutout because it has slivers of wood sticking out of the cutout. Both sides have little notches/cracks in the wood.

      I meant to ask you about this! Did you contact PS? Mine clearly looks sprayed. Perhaps they tried a few methods in order to meet production.

        I never did because I am unsure if I will use the cutting board.
