Everything in my box!

EiR NYC Cooling Lip Balm ($5) I sometimes “forget” to use SPF lip balm because I hate it when I get it in my mouth, it’s so gross. This cooling lip balm will definitely get used. Probably 24/7. It is so awesome!

The ingredients are simply shea butter, coconut oil, olive oil, beeswax, zinc oxide, and menthol. It went on super smooth, no chunks of shea butter that had to be smushed down on my lips. It also tingled with a cooling sensation. This balm is the bomb!

NII Foods Cashew Berry Bar ($2.99) I love it when I discover a new brand through subscription boxes! This bar is vegan and full of flavor from cashew butter, dates, walnuts, quinoa, and more. I was hesitant to try it at first since the package had some holes in it but I am confident that the holes are from the earrings that were in the box. I ate just a few bites from the opposite end. I would suggest to Craftly that they maybe wrap the ends of earrings with something in the future or perhaps place in a little box so they won’t compromise the quality of less sturdy items.

Here’s a closeup of the holes. They line up nicely with the holes from the earring card! I hope to try this brand again soon, they have about 6 different flavors and they all sound delicious!

Nuance Jewelry Splatter Hoop Earrings ($39) are made with lead-free white metal with gold plating and a surgical steel post. They are an updated take on classic hoops.

These are just gorgeous! Unfortunately my ear piercings have all closed up – I had so many allergic reactions, including to “pure gold” and nickle-free, that I just stopped wearing them altogether. I will pass them along to my oldest.

KANI Botanicals Shine Elixir Replenishing Hair Oil ($28) I love KANI Botanicals and was so happy to receive another awesome product by them in my box! My bottle was wrapped first in tissue paper and then bubble wrap and although it wasn’t broken it did leak but luckily nothing spread to other items in the box. I have super fine hair so I used just a small pump of this oil on my freshly washed hair and the tangles combed out quickly. I was surprised to find that my hair wasn’t weighed down but it would still take me YEARS to go through this much oil. I placed a pump full on my arm and happily report that it wasn’t sticky and so I will go ahead and use this as a body oil. The scent is heavenly, I love it! KANI products are all-natural, organic, and vegan and I recommend this line to anyone who likes natural beauty.

Craftly seems to have found their niche and I love the boxes I have been receiving from them! The products are always high quality and enjoyable. My box had a value of $74.99, which is almost double their goal of $40! The hair elixer/body oil alone was just about the same as the price paid for the box so I am a happy camper. The earrings would have been perfect for my style if I had pierced ears but they will make a lovely gift and the lip balm has a permanent place on my lips from here on out. I even managed a few bites of the yummy snack bar. Craftly is one of my favorite subscription boxes and they have had some consistently good, useful, well-made items that anyone who likes finely crafted products will appreciate.
