Kloverbox September 2015 Review and Unboxing (Plus Coupon Code!)

 I had a few reviews to quickly finish up before the end of September (can you believe it's already over??) but I had to move this month's Kloverbox to the top of the review pile. The moment I opened it, it was love at first sight! While most of you know by now how much I love Kloverbox, this month was particularly great in that it gave me literally everything I ask for in a subscription box: beauty, lifestyle, high overall value and (gasp) candles! Of course candles aren't a requirement to a successful subscription box, but I am always 10 times happier when I see one! Let's dig right into this month's box, because it was absolutely fantastic!
 What is Kloverbox?
Kloverbox is a lifestyle subscription box that sends 4 or more natural and organic products for you to fall in love with each month. This isn't a beauty subscription. Kloverbox sends products from all categories: beauty, health, food and home products, so you can incorporate more natural products into every aspect of your life!

How Does It Work?
On the Kloverbox site, you can choose a 1, 3 or 6 month subscription. The one month and 3 month subscriptions automatically renew, which means you will be billed again once that cycle is over (monthly, or every 3 months.) The 6 month subscription is a one-time purchase; Meaning you will not be billed again once the 6 month subscription is over. This is a great option to gift to friends and family because you won't have to remember to cancel the subscription. The longer the subscription you choose, the more of a discount you get, which is also awesome!
Another really great thing about Kloverbox is that they usually include a coupon code on the information card for each product for that month. So if you really fall in love with something from your box, you'll be able to get more at a fantastic discount. 

How Much?
  A month-to-month subscription to Kloverbox is $25 per box.
 3 month subscription is $71.25 ($23.75 per box) 
6 month subscription is $135 ($22.50) per box. 
Shipping is free and fast!

One Love Organics: Skin Savior- Multitasking Wonder Balm ($49)
 I was first introduced to this brand through PopSugar- as they included the Gardenia+Tea Body Serum in one of their boxes back in April. It was a big hit with a lot of subscribers, including me, so I was thrilled to see this brand again! 
This time, we've received something called the "Skin Savior" which is a multi-tasting miracle product, it seems! From the description, I'm assuming this can be used as a sort of cleansing balm as it removes dirt and makeup without stripping the skin. It also moisturizes, illuminates the skin. It's made with with organic coconut oil, mango butter, jojoba and chia. It has a really lovely citrus-vanilla scent. This balm has some seriously stellar reviews, so I'm really interested to give it a shot!
Not only is this a full size product, but it retails at a whopping $49! I am incredibly happy to get such a great value right of the bat with Kloverbox, but I was secretly hoping I wouldn't be totally in love with this product because that is way out of my price range! Luckily, Kloverbox included a coupon code to save 20% off (psst- it's KLOVER20) on the One Love Organics Website!

Paddywax: Apothecary Collection Soy Wax Candle in "Chamomile and Fig" ($5)
 CANDLE!! Seriously, nothing excites me more than a candle in a subscription box. We get a LOT of beauty products in subscriptions, and my other love/obsession is definitely candles. What is even more exciting, is that Paddywax is by far my favorite candle company. I absolutely love their unique scents and the lovely packaging. If you're a candle lover, you absolutely have to visit their website and see how amazing they are!
I believe there were a few different scents that were put into the boxes this month, and I received Chamomile and Fig. I am familiar with the Apothecary collection- I own the Tobacco and Patchouli scent as well as the Amber and Smoke scents in full size jars. This one has a very simplistic and gentle scent that I absolutely love. It's perfect for the bedroom- the calming scent of chamomile with the slight tang of the fig is just awesome. I really hope to see Paddywax again in future Kloverboxes! The more, the better!

Posh Skincare: Bergamot Facial Oil ($20)
 Another full size skincare product? Heck yes! I could kiss you, Kloverbox! Even though this beautiful bottle of facial oil looks like it's from a high-end boutique, it's actually from an etsy store called Posh Skincare. Not only does this facial oil smell absolutely amazing, but it is incredibly light in texture. It's made with cold-pressed, organic and unrefined oils (Organic Unrefined Virgin Cold-pressed Golden Jojoba Oil, Organic Unrefined Cold-pressed Rosehip Seed Oil, Bergamot Essential Oil) that work to even out your skin tone and help with hyper pigmentation while correcting UV damage. What's great about this company is that all their products are made to order- nothing more fresh than that!
I've been really wanting to incorporate a facial oil into my routine now that the colder weather is coming. I find it hard sometimes in the summer as they don't always absorb as quickly as I would like them to, but this is the perfect time of year to get this! I'm really excited to add this one into my routine!

Baggu: Baby Baggu in "Elephant Jade" Print ($7)
First of all, hooray for lifestyle items! Second of all, can we actually talk about how adorable this print is?? I love it so much! Baggu is a great brand that makes lots of different bags with a variety of prints out of ripstop nylon, and they are guaranteed to last a year- although many of the baggu bags I have are far older than that! This one is a smaller bag (4x4) and can hold up to 50 pounds. This one is perfect to throw in your purse so you have it on hand for a quick shopping trip, but I intend on using it as my lunch bag for work since the handle on my old one just broke!
Overall Thoughts
Kloverbox costs $25 a month (or less with a longer subscription!) and the September box has a total value of $81! That's an insane value for a $25 subscription! Not only is the value great this month, but the curation was just SO on point! I'm usually one of those "the more the better" people when it comes to products in subscriptions, but lately I've really been craving some really quality full size products or larger sized samples- and Kloverbox has really been delivering for me! Each product featured this month is something I will 100% use and love, which is not something that happens often with me and subscription contents. I think it was a great mix of beauty and lifestyle, and a great variety of well known and new brands. I can't say a single bad thing about this month! Kloverbox remains one of my all-time favorite subscriptions for a good reason!

If you want to sign up for Kloverbox (and why wouldn't you??) You can do that here!

  1. I can't wait to get home and see mine! I cannot use the facial oil as the website states that it is not for acne prone skin - that is my only downer with this month's box. But the rest of it looks great and I wonder what candle scent I will get!

    1. Hi! The Facial Oil isn't recommended for acne prone skin but we have had ladies with acne prone skin try our oil and it had worked perfectly - no break outs! You should test out the oil first, it may just work for you! :)
