So lets get onto the box shall we. This is how it arrived from UPS. I loved how the box isn’t labelled apart from a shipping label so you can reuse it again.

Opening the box I was greeted with another unmarked brown box tied with a big red ribbon. I thought this was such a nice touch. Not sure if it will always be this way but its very festive and all can be used again.
Upon opening this box we are greeted with this…
The top card is basically talking about December  and why the items were selected. On the flip side of the card is the product description. Under that card was another card just welcoming me to Seasons Box.
As you can see they used red crinkle paper and the box is filled with it to secure the products so nothing moved around and kept it safe and sound. I think this is such a neat idea and I was in need of some crinkle paper.
I love the packaging of this and its so perfect for Xmas. I actually ended up putting some crinkle paper in this and hung it on the tree.
Inside the pouch was a Mint Truffle Lip Balm from Evergreen . This smelled so good and its made with organic Shea butter and all natural beeswax.

As I was writing this post I realized that on the product card they talk about the product and there is a why they love it section and they said that this is not tested on animals, no yucky oils and no bad preservatives. Things I love about a lip balm.

 
This is a full size product at 0.25 ounces for $4.00
I love the packaging of  the Soak Essentials Aromatherapy Bath Salts. I mean how cute is this? The bath salts are all handcrafted from essential oils that come from plants and flowers. This is to help sooth the mind, body and soul. Plus they are a Canadian company.
 
From the website: Muscle and Joint Relief – Refreshing and uplifting, this therapeutic bath soak is packed with a natural blend of mineral salts and essential oils. Enough to rejuvenate any ol’ bag of bones!! This is the ULTIMATE Muscle and Joint Relaxant. Eucalyptus is known as an effective anti-microbial and is said to stimulate circulation, warm the body, increases concentration, and to be useful for relieving rheumatic aches and pains. Camphor Essential oil can be used in the treatment of nervous depression, inflammation, arthritis, muscular aches and pains, sprains, rheumatism, bronchitis, coughs, colds, fever, flu and infectious diseases. Peppermint essential dual action warming/cooling sensation is reputed to be beneficial for relieving inflammation and muscle ailments and energizes the mind and body. All of these combined are the perfect cure for all the bodies aches and pains.

The reason this is a loved item is because its a muscle and joint relaxant and its got ingredients that fight of colds and infectious diseases. I am thinking of soaking in a tube now because I have a sinus thing going on.

The size is 5.5ounces and is considered a half pint and sells for $5.00

When I opened the box I could smell this right away. Its Bambuearth ‘s Natural and Responsible Soap. The one I got is Pine with Parsley.
 
From the website:
Your dream forest oasis. The fresh crisp morning air lingers as does the dew on the grass underneath your toes. You take in a deep breath to fill your lungs with the smell of fresh pine. There’s nothing but the sounds of nature and you drink in it’s beauty. Our Pine soap is a dream. With a heavy yet fresh woodsy scent that is crisp and earthy, you won’t be disappointed. You might even start to confuse the shower with your own dream forest oasis.

Ingredients

Extra Virgin Olive Oil*, Coconut Oil*, Sustainable Palm Oil*, Unrefined Shea Butter^, Cocoa Butter*^, Parsley Powder, Pine Essential Oil

 
This is a full size item and its 4.5 ounces and it sells for $8.00
 
Another great thing about this product is that you can plant the label from the soap and it will grow into some wild flowers. How neat is that?
The last item in the box was Tisano Cacao Tea.  Its a chocolate tea and its suppose to be the world’s first real chocolate tea. There is no artificial flavors and its 100% organic Venezuelan cacao.
 
It smells so good ….
and it looks so good. This is a full size item its 4 ounces for I think  $14.95 I haven’t made it yet but I think I will tomorrow since I tend to avoid drinking teas in the evenings.
 
As you can see the box paid for itself with $31.95 in products and they were all full size items. I am excited to try everything out and to perhaps do some online shopping in the new year at these fantastic businesses.

Then if that wasn’t awesome enough we also got these bonus gifts.

They are both from Bath & Body Works. Which I happen to love as you probably know if you read my blog. We got a mini Twisted Peppermint candle ($3.50) is 1.3 ounces and the other item is a anti-bacterial pocketbac sanitizing hand gel. Its in the scent Jolly Gingerbread ($1.50) . Which is always nice to have in your purse or pocket for a quick clean up.

Thats a $5 bonus gift.

 
I am truly impressed with this box. I am so excited to try everything out. Plus they delivered what they said they would and that is impressive. Wishing great things for this Canadian company.
