Each box includes sheet masks, skincare, superfoods and some surprise items all good for you and the environment!

DEAL: Get 10% off your first box! Use coupon code HELLO10.

My items were nestled in shredded brown paper squiggles.

The info card showed how you can win a free gift worth $30 by sharing a picture of your box on social media.

The other side listed their “Buyer’s Notes” along with where in the world the items came from. Hmm, this only lists 6 items. I received a total of 7 items, but one item from the card was missing (Nibmore) and two others that weren’t on the card were in the box (a mask and a hair pin). I was pretty sure this box wasn’t going to hit that promised value of $125 (insert sad face emoji here).

There were a few vendor cards with coupon codes for a shop purchase.

I liked the presentation, it was bright and colorful!

Everything in my box!

Foods Alive Chocolate Macaroon Power Snackers ($12.76) Toki Box wants to help us live healthier so they send snacks made of superfoods.

These sweet crackers have 140 calories and 4 grams of fiber per 5-cracker serving. They were broken up so it was kind of hard to tell how much was a serving but if you divide the bag into thirds you can probably figure it out.

I liked these chocolate seed crackers! They weren’t too sweet and I thought they were similar to a nut-filled brownie crisp.

Amore Lee Rose Geranium 3 In 1 Facial Spray ($12.85) is from an Etsy seller who makes the items in her own home.

Only four ingredients go into this bottle – rose geranium water, witch hazel, distilled water, and aloe (although the website says “rose water”, which is different from rose geranium). Either way, it has a classic rose scent and can be used as a toner, refreshing spritz, or makeup setter. You can even use it as a light body spray!

Mahalo Coconut & Almonds Candy Bar ($2.52) is a vegan friendly alternative to an Almond Joy or Mounds bar. They had me at coconut.

It’s made with dried coconut, non-GMO sweeteners, and has a few whole roasted almonds on top and under a chocolaty coating.

Nutritionally speaking, this is pretty similar to an Almond Joy, but with slightly more sugar, calories, and saturated fat (80% of the daily value of saturated fat, versus 40% for an Almond Joy). In other words, it’s a special treat.

Nugg Deep Cleansing Face Mask ($8.44) is a 2-in-1 mask to help cleanse skin and leave it shine-free, plus it is supposed to soothe sensitive skin.

Aloe is the base of this creamy gel mask. I opened it up and slathered the whole container’s worth on my skin and then waited 5 minutes. The skin above my lip experienced a bit of irritation.

Me Moringa Beauty Drink ($8.50) is touted as having “powerful curative powers” thanks to Moringa powder and other natural ingredients.

Moringa is full of antioxidants, is an anti-inflammatory, and is used to treat all kinds of conditions, from dandruff to kidney stones. Please consult your doctor if you are pregnant as it may not be safe.

The tea was in a plastic bag, which I opened and then poured back into the container.

It is certainly pretty! Some of the other ingredients in here are cinnamon, fennel, St. John’s Wort, and licorice root. St. John’s Wort can interact with many medications to cause side effects, while licorice root may cause high blood pressure. I only tried the tea once, since I was worried about the side effects, and steeped it using 1 teaspoon in boiling water for 3 minutes. The taste was pleasant and had a mild cinnamon flavor. If you are worried about side effects then consider using this as a rinse for your hair! Just let it cool after steeping and then pour on clean hair.

Tiani Rose + Geranium Body Lotion ($7) I love trying new body products like this lovely lotion.

Most of the ingredients in here are all-natural. It features sunflower seed and coconut oils, cocoa and shea butters, and essential oils.

It was kind of a mess when it got here but other than that it was fine. It took just a bit more effort to rub in and left a floral/herbal scent that was pleasant and faded quickly.

Toki Box sends a bonus product and since it wasn’t on the card it may vary from box to box.

Inside this pouch I found a fancy barrette!

You can find a similar Moon and Stone Pendant Barrette for $2.99. I am not a barrette person, my hair is so thin it would just slip off but one of my daughters will be able to use it.

I thought this was a promising debut from Toki Box! It had a lovely assortment of snacks and beauty items, plus the barrette was a nice bonus gift. The products also seemed to play off of each other, in most cases. The snacks each had coconut while the lotion, spray, and tea all had rose (or possibly rose geranium). My items had a value of around $55.06, well below the $125+ average value that I saw in a couple of places on their website. If that was a mistake then they should quickly delete the wording from their site. I really liked the combo of snacks and beauty – Toki Box wants us to look good from the inside out and that is something I can agree with!
