California Found is an awesome monthly subscription box that delivers the best of The Golden State, directly to your mailbox! Each box is $49, but has a value of $90+! Shipping is available worldwide. What will you find in your box?

California Found is a discovery box of beautifully crafted California artisan products delivered right to your door. Every month, you’ll receive a collection of thoughtful, local, small-batch items that may include gourmet, spa & beauty, home goods, jewelry, stationery and more. The contents change monthly, and are delivered boxed and ready for giving.

I love opening this box, it always looks so well put together! My items were wrapped in tissue paper that was sealed with a sticker and the items were cushioned in shredded paper.

I found a set of cards inside the box. One card had an introduction to the current box, and one for each of the vendors featured in this month’s box. California Found is now part of 1% For The Planet, which means they donate at least 1% of their gross revenue to this charity that works to promote a healthier planet. Make sure to dig down to the bottom of your box – one box will contain The Golden Ticket and will earn the holder a free box for themselves or a friend!

Looking good!

Everything in my January 2020 California Found box!

Nora’s Food Co. Original Grain Free Granola ($9.99) I love granola of all kinds and this one was perfect right out of the bag!

Ingredients were on the bag and include coconut, egg whites, coconut sugar, and nuts.

There’s no grains, not even oatmeal! Like most granolas, it is high in calories and fat so a little goes a long way. It can be eaten as cereal or like a granola bar, or sprinkle over yogurt.

Soul Spark Candle Prosperity ($21.99) We have received candles from this brand before!

According to the jar this is made with organic soy and coconut oil and it is supposed to burn for up to 50 hours. It is infused with green tea essential oil; to my knowledge there is no such thing, I think “green tea fragrance oil” would be a better description. It smells like perfume or room spray, with a hint of sweetness and a green, clean feel to it.

The inside of the lid has a positive affirmation and there is some sort of trinket or charm in the bottom, which I won’t discover until it burns down. I would say the affirmation is one of manifestation, one to make your dreams come true. The scent is good cold but I couldn’t smell it at all as the candle burned, so it has no throw. Light it to promote a relaxing atmosphere but I wouldn’t expect it to scent your room.

100 Graces Amber Necklace ($32) I have always wanted an amber necklace and now it is here!

The card that the necklace was attached to gave a little info on amber, a natural product made from dried sap of trees.

The chain is silver colored and is 20″ from one end to the other but can be adjusted up to two inches smaller. I think it is beautiful!

We received two natural beauty products from Naked Scrubs!

Naked Scrubs Calm Naked Herbal Face Steam ($11) Look at how pretty this facial steam is, it is so colorful! Place this mix in a large bowl and pour boiling water over the mix, then cover your head with a towel and carefully lower your face to let the herbs do their work. Some of the herbs are anti-inflammatory, some are calming, and some are stress-relieving. Avoid if you have a condition such as rosacea as that can make it worse. I love the scent, it smells like rosemary!

Naked Scrubs Sunshine Naked Face Mask ($16) Only three ingredients are in this mask – turmeric, rhassoul clay, and bentonite clay. It is a dry powder so you will need to add some liquid before applying – try water, plant hydrosol (such as rose water), or even plain yogurt. I prefer to use this type of product before taking a shower because it goes straight down the drain and since I have dry skin I always rinse it off before it dries all the way.

Missive Letterpress Cards in Hugs & Kisses, I Heart (Emoji) You, and You Make Life Sweeter ($5 each) We received three sweet cards that are ready to be addressed and sent for the coming holiday! Each card is blank on the inside and comes with a matching envelope. Two of the cards are 4.25″ x 5.5″ and one is slightly smaller, 3.5″ x 5″.

California Found sent an amazing collection of cheery items that were perfect for a dreary month. These items smelled, tasted, and felt good and I enjoyed putting them to use. I am always amazed at the wonderful curation and the high quality of the products in this box. Most of these brands have been in the box before so it is awesome to discover new products from old favorites. The value for the January collection was around $105.98!
