Third month in a row, Kloverbox was very late and I just received it. Kloverbox delivers deluxe and full size products and I have been impressed with their packaging and curating of their boxes. Kloverbox is an eco-friendly subscription that you can subscribe month-to-month at $25/monthly, 3 month subscription at $23.75/monthly or a 6 month subscription at $22.50/monthly
This month’s theme is “Cause for Celebration” as this is Kloverbox’s One Year Anniversary!
Previse Skincare SunSheer SPF 30 Sunscreen Moisturizer This is a broad spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen that also is a moisturizer. It is made with antioxidant ingredients and extracts from licorice root (dipotassium glycyrrhizate), which help with anti-aging, combat free radicals, reduce hyper-pigmentation and hydrate your skin, while blocking UVA and UVB rays. This is more watery than a normal sunscreen, because of its duo function as a moisturizer. Sunscreens are usually more thick and this one isn’t ~ I actually had to shake my tube a bit, as the heat really make it more liquid-y and I need to mix the ingredients back together. This doesn’t leave a white cast (yeah!), but does have a dewy look to it. The scent is very subtle, a light pink grapefruit. It is summertime and as much as I loathe getting sunscreen in my sub boxes, I do use them. I am always looking for one that doesn’t clog my pores, doesn’t make my face oily and doesn’t make me breakout. This does have some ingredients that are acne triggers, so if all else fails, I will use it on my arms and neck. Full Size 3 oz Value $36.00

Praerie Botanicals Tonka Body Balm Perfect for the summertime! This is made with pure plant butters ~ ~ and organic virgin coconut oil that will soften, heal and hydrate your skin. This is scented with coconut pulp extracts and tonka oil, from Brazil ~ I never tried anything made with tonka oil and it smells like a light slightly spiced vanilla. This is a very rich and moisturizing body butter and whereas it applies with an oily sheen, it quickly absorbs into my skin, leaving it soft and smooth. I will have to put this in the frig, as it was outside in the heat today and was quite liquified. I am sure it is supposed to be more of a solid balm, not a liquid one. Praerie Botanicals only use 100% natural plant based ingredients, as well as ethically and sustainably sourced herbs, butters, clay, sea salts, flowers, hydrosols and essential oils. Full Size 2 oz Value $20.00
Sorry for the out of focus shot here ~ you can see just by the sides of the jar, however, how this is really liquified due to the heat
Description: This handcrafted blend of high quality butters and botanical oils is a think, creamy, and deeply moisturizing treatment, completely free of wax and fillers, so a little goes a long way as the therapeutic properties penetrate quickly into the skin to deliver concentrated nutrition and hydration with a non-greasy finish and a luminous healthy glow.
Ingredients: cocos nucifera (virgin coconut) oil, butyrospermum parkii (shea butter) fruit butter, mangifera indica (mango) seed butter, caprylic/capric triglyceride, dipteryx odorata (tonka bean) absolute
FlutterFlyScrubs Sugar Scrub in Citrusy I love the name FlutterFlyScrubs! This scrub had scent variations and I am pretty happy with the one I received! I love citrus scents and it is labeled by the little slice of lemon on the top of the jar. This does smell like lemons and as we know, I love a Fresh Citrus Fix (haha). This has a lot of nourishing and moisturizing oils ~ apricot kernel, avocado, coconut, jojoba ~ as well as cocoa and shea butter to lock in the moisture. Very nice! I like both sugar & salt scrubs as they do serve a different purpose ~ sugar scrubs I like using on my face as well, and this one is suitable for both the body and face. FlutterFlyScrubs is an etsy shop and they have a lot of different sugar scrub scents, so check them out! Full Size 4 oz Value $8.95
Ingredients: organic cane sugar, apricot kernel oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, vegetable based emulsifying wax, cocoa butter, shea butter, stearic acid, essential oil blend
Ellisons Organics 3-Free Nail Polish in Kaptivating Koral This shade was specifically created for Kloverbox and is a shimmery (not full blown metallic) coral shade. I actually like this color as it reminds me of a papaya shade and I think it is very pretty. I’ve purchased Ellisons Organics nail polishes before and I really like them a lot ~ they go on nice and smooth and for an organic nail polish, they last better than most. This one is not vegan, as it may contain carmine, but it is 3-free: no formaldehyde, toluene, or DBP, and it is paraben, gluten and BPA free. Full Size Value $12.00
Ingredients: Butyl Acetate, Ethyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Adipic Acid/Neopentyl Gycol/Trimellitic Anhydride Copolymer, Isopropyl Alcohol, Acrylates Copolymer, Stearalkonium Bentonite, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Polyvinyl Butyral, Benzophenone-1k May Contain: Mica, Ultramarine, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxies, Chromium Oxide, Red Oxides, Tin Oxide, Carmine, Bismuth Chloride, Ferric Ferrocyanide, Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide, Bronze Powder, Silica, Glitter
Four full sized products this month! I am really excited about the body balm and sugar scrub (I am meh on sunscreen, but I will use it). I also really like the nail polish color, which is surprising as normally I do not care for orange shades that much. I paid $18.00 due to a promo code + 6 month subscription and received a value of $76.95. Do you subscribe to Kloverbox? What was your favorite product this month? My favorite would have to be the sugar scrub!
