So, last month I wrote about a new eco-friendly subscription called Kloverbox and I was so impressed by it, I signed up for a 6 month subscription ~ something I NEVER DO. I never commit to a subscription service, because I like being able to leave if I want to. However, I really loved November’s box and when they had a Black Friday special, where you get 3 months for the price of 2 months, I was in!!

Okay, let’s move on to my December box!
So this month brought me four full sized items!!
Grace Green Beauty Body Food Full Size 8 oz Value $34.90 This is a huge jar of body butter! This is a thick body butter that is made with organic raw, cold pressed oils and butters. This has a slight scent of patchouli, but it is not overpowering. Very thick, moisturizing and it can be used not only on your skin, but as a hair treatment as well. There is also a stick included, as the oils can separate. Those yellow swirls in my body butter are normal ~ it is so cold right now, that everything is pretty solid, but it looks when it thaws out a bit, it will separate. This is the perfect time of year to get such a hydrating body butter!
Product Description: Say goodbye to dry skin. Feed your skin with this head to toe anti-aging super food. Made with an array of raw, cold pressed oils and butters. Molecules small enough to penetrate skin. Experience skin rejuvenation at the cellular level. Hearty, earthy scent.
How To Use: Apply liberally. Use the excess on hands to nourish and tame the ends of your hair. Separation is natural. Stir and use!
Ingredients: *Raw Shea Butter, *Extra Virgin Olive Oil, *Raw Coconut Oil, *Jojoba Oil, *Grape Seed Oil, *Sweet Almond Oil, Non GMO Vitamin E, Water, *Vegetable Glycerin, *Pachouli Oil, EGluconodeltalactone and Sodium Benzoate, *Castor Oil, Emulsifying Wax NF (vegetable wax for emulsification)

Befine Food Skin Care Lip Serum Full Size .5 oz Value $18.00 I have used Befine products before and I do like them a lot. I am also a lip balm junkie, so having one made from BEETS really intrigues me. I never had one made with beets before! This is actually a lip serum/treatment which uses plant peptides to help firm and plump up lips while the chamomile helps smooth and soften fine lines and wrinkles.
Product Description: Plump your lips and the skin encircling them as you slick on shine and tint with this all natural serum. Created from chamomile, a collagen supporter and healing antioxidant, and ultra-sheer beet root extract. ALLERGEN FREE, FRAGRANCE PARABEN FREE ,VEGETARIAN PROTEINS
Ingredients: Palm Peptides,Chamomile Oil,Safflower Seed Oil,Beet Root Extract,Bixa Orellana Seed Extract.
Grain Bath & Home Room Spray in Cinnamon, Clove & Orange Full Size 4 oz Value $7.00 I have to purchase more of these. This is my absolute favorite thing in this box and it is SO wonderful. This is an aromatic mist that contains organic essential oils ~ Cinnamon, cloves and oranges ~ this brings me back to my childhood memories of making Orange-Clove Pomander’s for my Mom as a Christmas present ~ hey, I was young and had no money!! It smells JUST like that and it is such a nice change from the other Holiday scents of vanilla, pine, apples ~ the orange and spices are just so inviting. If you are interested in making a pomander, it is pretty easy to do. Check out this site ~ these, if made properly, will last for decades. Pomanders date back to the Middle Ages, where air fresheners such as this one didn’t exist 😉
Product Description: Beautifully crafted scents that are perfect for the bathroom, bedroom, kitchen; even sports equipment. There are no added fragrances in these bottles. The smell is very clean but not overpowering. Air fresheners on the market contain chemicals and many are not even listed on the spray bottles. Our room sprays are simple and clean. Essential oils, witch hazel extract and distilled water are the only things you will be breathing in. Ditch the Glade and Renuzit and bring Grain into your home or office! Cinnamon Clove & orange-bold, spicy, slightly sweet
Grain also has this in two additional scents: Peppermint Lavender-minty,fresh, herbaceous, floral and Bergamot Orange-fruity, sweet, slightly spicy
Ingredients: Essential oils, witch hazel extract, distilled water
Ellison’s Organics 5-FREE Crystal Clear Top Coat Full Size .5 oz Value $6.00 Confession time. When I saw this brand as a spoiler on Kloverbox’s home page, I went to check it out. This is an etsy shop (again, I love it when companies feature etsy shops) and I saw that this vendor (a very nice lady, btw) had a Doctor Who Collection. I am a huge Doctor Who fan…going back to the Tom “all teeth and curls” Baker days. I did purchase 3 of the nailpolishes, which I will swatch and show below, so you can see the rich and lovely colors Ellison’s has. However, those nail polishes are not part of this month’s Kloverbox, I just wanted to show you them. This is a top coat, of which I can always use. I love that it does not yellow and does not shrink my glitter nail polishes!
Product Description: The perfect top coat! Finally, a clear top coat that is not only super shiny, but also 5-free. This professional grade top coat does not yellow and does not cause shrinkage with glitter nail polish! I recommend 1-2 coats for a shiny, chip-free result. Ellison’s Organics is committed to providing you with quality nail polish products with the lowest amount of chemical ingredients possible. We chose this 5 free top coat because it provides a beautiful shine without yellowing, it goes on very smoothly, and because it is 5 free and cruelty free, you can feel good about using it. 5 Free Top Coat (no DBP, no formaldehyde or formaldehyde resin, no toluene, no camphor).

Tardis Soap ~ isn’t this cute? It is that classic blue that we all know a Tardis should be and it is very detailed.
Product Description: Organic Tardis Soap! Is there really a better stocking stuffer for the Doctor Who fan (Whovian) in your life? This unscented Tardis soap is sure to attract even the messiest Doctor to the sink or tub. Place some of these by the sink and just watch the suds start to roll off those busy hands – but make sure to keep your sonic screwdriver out of the water.
Lots of Planets Have a North ~ When the 9th Doctor was questioned about his very apparent northern accent in his debut episode and the kickoff of the Nu Who Era. This is my favorite shade of the 3, even though they all are beautiful. I just love the dark vampy look of this color.
Product Description: Lots of Planets Have a North is Nine’s polish. The Doctor that brought the show back to TV doesn’t get as much attention as he might deserve. This lacquer is based off of his preferred outfit of black leather jacket and deep purple shirt. It has a nice deep, purple/black shift and is very opaque.
Silent Night ~ Silent Night is a LE polish that was introduced on Cyber Monday 2014. I managed to snag the last bottle. This is also the name of the 2011 Christmas Special episode.
Product Description: Silent night is a beautiful, glamorous linear holo that absolutely stuns when hit by sunlight. It travels easily from a somewhat sedate, pretty, professional manicure to a stunning accent for a wonderful night out. This 3-free lacquer is a blue/purple color that shifts and shines in the light. The more sunlight the better you can enjoy the linear holographic effect!
Bowties are Cool ~ The 11th Doctor was known for his bowties and his fez…And yes, he made them cool!
Product Description: Bow Ties are Cool is in honor of the 11th Doctor. This lacquer represents the darker ties that 11 loved to wear, and brings out the fun he had with them with the micro sparkles. After all, bow ties are cool. As you can see, it’s a stunner! Bow Ties are Cool is a maroon or purply lacquer with tiny red sparkles throughout.
