The box is quite heavy!
Pro Circuit Flexi-Spray This sprayis said to temporarily relieves aches and pains of muscles and joints associated with one or more of the following: simple backache, lumbago, strains and sprains (involving muscles, tendons, and/or ligaments), and arthritis. It’s made with Menthol, Camphor, eucalyptus essential oil and clove essential oil. It has a nice cooling effect on the skin.
Pure Vegetable Soap with Fresh goat’s Milk by Nature by Canus. I love goat milk soap and I’m quite familiar with this soap as it’s readily available in any drugstore over here. I like it, especially in winter as I find it quite moisturizing.
SiSU Sweet Dreams supplement. This supplement is filled with Camomile, L-theanie and Lemon Balm. Together, they should help the brain to calm down, helping to have a better rest at night.
A Vogel Echinaforce Extra. I was really happy to see these supplements in this month’s box. I go through about three to four cold per winter, and I started using echinacea a while ago and it helps me feel better, even though the cold last as long as without it. I’m used to take it in liquid form, but these are fine. I don’t know if you are suppose to swallow them whole, but I chew them as I enjoy the almost minty taste of this herb.
Eden Pumpkin Seeds. I love pumpkin seeds! For me, it’s a more satisfying version of sunflower seeds (and I keep a package of them in my car at all time). I usually buy mine raw so I can roast them with whatever flavor I want, but these are really good! Crunchy and salty, so good!
Vegan Rob’s Tumeric Chips. They are made with sprouted brown rice flour, white rice flour, flax seeds, chia seeds and quinoa, with a bunch of delicious spices (turmeric, nutritional yeast, etc). They are wavy and tasted like nice potato chips, without the greasy fingers!
Tempura ready to serve by Mito. This is probably not available outside the province of Quebec, with one or two exception, as they are products by a company that makes sushi for IGA grocery stores. I thought at first that it was a kind of panko, but they are actually little bits of tempura batter. I don’t mind, I’ll use it as panko on top of my Mac and Cheese, or in my home made sushi rolls. A recipe for a matcha-chocolate-tempura truffle, only in french, was included in the box.
Herbamare by A Vogel. I like this vegetable broth cubes. They are not overly salty, and they taste great. It’s also one of the few vegetable broth on the market that have no celery in the ingredients. They can be used for a simple noodle or dumplings broth, to cook rice or couscous (I love it with couscous).
SoloGi Bar – Moka Fudge. A protein bar that is nicely chewy and taste delicious without artificial sweetener. Made with soy and whey proteins, cocoa soy crisps, dark chocolate, almond and beet juice.
Taste of Nature Organic – Dark Chocolate and Coconut. Made with pumpkin seeds, toasted coconut, peanuts, almonds and dark chocolate, this bar should have been nice, but I found it bland. The coconut taste was too strong compared to the dark chocolate, and it was dense.
Laritzy Cosmetic – Nude Eyeshadow Collection. Lately, we’ve been receiving cosmetics in every box.
This month, we received this nude eyeshadow palettes. I almost broke the case trying to open it (the plastic feels really cheap), but the eyeshadows feel really creamy.
Soap Stix – Canadian Maple Soap – Travel Size. Made with Canadian Maple Syrup, this soap is natural and paraben free. It cleans, moisturizes and repairs dry skin. Just spray it and rinse off. The format is perfect to put in the purse or a backpack. I will admit that it strongly smells maple syrup, and being a maple syrup lover, I licked it. Please, don’t do that. It’s disgusting!
Burt’s Bees Strawberry Lip balm. Nice lip balm, it’s very moisturizing and smells like delicious strawberries. It’s perfect for the dry winter!
I wasn’t overly impressed by this month’s selection. I like when we get a bit more snacks instead of two supplements. Personnaly, I’m not sure what to think of having make-up in this box. I know that Laritzy is vegan, gluten-free and cruelty-free, but I’m not really into make-up. I’m really happy to have the tempura bits and the herbamare as they are two ingredients I can use on an almost daily basis. The snacks were tasty, I just want more! Overall, it still a nice box to discover new healthy brands and to try some things you would not have tried.
