I received my April Kloverbox today after waiting with anticipation after I saw the two spoilers for this box. Kloverbox delivers deluxe and full size products and I have been impressed with their packaging and curating of their boxes. This is one subscription that I look forward to every month and am excited to open. Even Obi-Wan is excited about my Kloverbox (he always helps with my unboxings!)
This month’s theme is “Spring makes everything young again” and I am glad to see that this month is focusing more on lifestyle items and body care!
The green happy face is my expression when I saw my box (hugs)
Kosmatology Foaming Hand Soap in Lemon Lovers (assorted scents) Kosmatology was in the very first Kloverbox I received with a lovely hand sanitizer that I use all the time. I have ordered directly from their site and am really happy to get a foaming hand soap and this is a scent I haven’t tried yet. It smells wonderfully like lemons and this is made with organic and natural ingredients, such as coconut, olive and safflower oils. It does not contain preservatives, has no parabens, pthalates, sodium lauryl and sodium laureth sulfates. Kosmatology does not animal test and this product does not contain any animal derived ingredients. Kosmatology offers other scents ~ Goody-Goody Grapefruit (I have this scent in another product and it is really nice!), Herbal Fresh (I think I will have to purchase this one), Botanical Bliss and Orange Sweetness. This is a full sized bottle of hand soap ~ 8.5 oz! Value $8.99
Description: Kosmatology’s foaming hand soaps are made the old fashioned way using only the highest quality organic oils such as coconut, olive and safflower. Their pleasing scents come from a blend of organic essential oils. No thickening agents, perfumes or triclosan are found in our soaps and the amazing pumps create a thick foam perfect for adults and children alike.
Ingredients: Aqua, Organic Olea europaea (Olive) oil, Organic Cocos nucifera (Coconut) oil, Organic Elaeis guineensis (Palm Kernel) oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Organic Citrus limon (Lemon) Essential oil
Old Orchard No 10 Baobab & Rosehip Lotion Bar This was one of the spoilers. This is a handcrafted lotion bar, which is made with mango, shea butter, baobab and rosehip ingredients ~ all of those are deeply hydrating and will nourish your skin with their intense moisturizing properties. I do have an issue ~ this bar is SO BEAUTIFUL that I do NOT want to use it ~ EVER.
It is a lovely sunny yellow color and in the shape of some exotic multi-layered, multi-petal flower ~ or it could be a bloomin’ onion ;) But is is so pretty and has a lovely light sweet tangerine scent to it. I am not sure I can use this, it is too nice. Am I the only one that feels this way about this product? Full Size 2 oz Value $28.00
- Baobab seed oil comes from the baobab tree, or “Tree of Life” in Africa, and is highly emollient. It has been used to treat eczema, psoriasis, acne, and many other skin conditions. The baobab tree’s typical lifespan is 500 years. Its oil is quick to absorb and highly nourishing to dry skin.
- Organic rosehip seed oil is a powerful anti-aging oil and a natural anti-inflammatory. Rosehip seed oil can regenerate skin cells, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, minimize the appearance of scars, and improve skin tone. Its high vitamin A content aids in skin cell turnover and accelerates skin regeneration.
- Mango butter prevents dryness, wrinkles, and helps to restore elasticity to dry and aging skin. It is a non-greasy emollient, absorbing quickly and leaving the skin feeling soft and rejuvenated.
- Organic shea butter has been used for thousands of years for dry, damaged, and aging skin. It is highly moisturizing and helps protect against the damaging effects of the sun.
- Tangerine essential oil is known to tighten, tone and reduce the appearance of cellulite, while calming the senses and promoting restful sleep.
Ingredients: organic beeswax, mango butter, meadowfoam seed oil, organic shea butter, baobab seed oil, organic rosehip seed oil, vitamin E, tangerine essential oil, organic sweet orange essential oil.
Bridge Nine Candle Company ~ Citrus The name of this candle is pretty blunt, no flowery words, no catchy-cutsey phrase. This is a Citrus candle, damnit and they mean business with that name. And yes, it is a citrus candle. A plain creamy colored soy candle, Citrus has a wonderful sweet grapefruit scent. This candle is made in Portland, OR and is hand poured using all natural ingredients, such as soy, which is sourced from American farmers, 100% cotton wicks and fragrance oils, which are formaldehyde free. This has a burn time of 20 hours. This was our other spoiler and I was really excited to see a candle in Kloverbox! Full Size 4 oz Value $9.00
Real Beauty for a Cause Coffee Scrub I love a good body scrub, especially made with coffee. I love the scent of coffee, and it really wakes me up! This is a “dry” scrub, which means it has just enough avocado oil in it to keep it moist ~ you can see the grains and it is not all sloppy wet. Cinnamon oil helps increase blood circulation, which increases and improves the skin tone as well. I really like Real Beauty for a Cause’s mission statement ~ They believe in giving back to others and improving communities, and donate 25% of every purchase to a list of rotating charities, many which empower women and assisting them and their children. They are based in St. Louis, MO and ensure that their ingredients are naturally derived and hasn’t been chemically processed. Great company profile! Deluxe Size 2 oz Value $7.50
Description: Our Coffee Scrub is an invigorating blend of ground coffee, Himalayan sea salt , cold pressed avocado oil and cinnamon essential oil. When applied religiously, it has been shown to reduce the appearance of cellulite- especially over time!
How to Use: Apply a layer of scrub to the skin with circular scrubbing motions. Rinse completely. This scrub can get a bit messy so we recommend using in the shower.
Ingredients: Organic Coffee, Himalayan Sea Salt, Avocado Oil, Cinnamon Essential Oil
Rani’s Yummy Shooters in Peanut Butter Dream Buttered Oats (assorted flavors) Just the name is making me hungry. These are yummy oats, flavored with peanut butter and only has 4 ingredients at 150 calories ~ it tastes like a peanut butter cookie, but it is good for you. Rani, the creator of these yummy snacks, created these for her son, when she was a single mom on food stamps. Amazing story and now she has a successful company! Just delicious and gone now…haha Rani’s also offers this in Chocolate, Cinnamon and Original (maple granola) Full size 1.2 oz Value $1.99
Ingredients: Oats, butter (cream [milk], salt), cane sugar, peanut butter (roasted peanuts)
Urban Oreganics Brush Cleaner Urban Oreganics was featured in last month’s Kloverbox, with a rosewater toner. There were issues with the bottles and Urban Oreganics and Kloverbox made good with replacing that product with a new one. This isn’t really part of April’s box, but a replacement from March’s. This is a brush cleaner, made with coconut oil, hemp oil (love hemp!!), joboba oil, olive oil, vitamin E and sea salt. This cleanser is vegan, 100% natural, organic and gluten-free It is a solid, unscented cleanser ~ what you do is wet your brushes and then swirl them around in the cleansers, which will start to suds up and remove dirt from your brushes. Then rinse your brush well, and lie flat to dry. You will wipe dry the surface of the cleanser dry and place the lid back on the jar. I do appreciate the way that both Kloverbox and Urban Oreganics handled this issue from March’s box and thank them for their professionalism and quick responses. Full Size 2 oz Value $16.00
Description: Our concentrated cosmetic brush cleaner is the perfect solution to keep your brushes clean. Keeping them clean is so important for the quality of both your brushes and your skin. Your brushes should be cleaned at least once a week to remove build up of makeup and oil, and also to prevent bacterial growth.

Ingredients: organic pure coconut oil, distilled water, organic extra virgin olive oil, organic fair trade hemp oil, organic jojoba oil, sea salt, nonGMO vitamin e oil, optional essential oil
This month is a complete WIN in my estimation! I am so glad to see lifestyle products in this box and the citrus-y scents :) I know that I have complained about the rose scented items in the past, which I understand cannot be avoided completely, but I had felt the “rose overload” from February and March. This month is just lovely, from functional products like the hand soap, to a beautiful body lotion bar, an invigorating coffee scrub for the body, a grapefruit scented candle and a yummy oat treat. Urban Oreganics replacement product is a better choice for me, as I can always use brush cleansers! Kloverbox is getting renewed once my 6 months are up!
I paid $16.67 due to my Black Friday discount and received a value of over $55.48 without including the Urban Oreganics product Do you subscribe to Kloverbox? What was your favorite product this month? I loved them all!
