Loves It Newfoundland Box March 2017

Loves It is a box of Newfoundland sourced, hand crafted, home made items.  They are proudly sending out boxes of items they purchase from those local suppliers so that they can show off the greatness of their artists, crafters, and businesses.  They offer both a Standard or a Premium box and monthly or quarterly subscriptions.  Boxes start at $35.00 a month but do go down with longer plans.  There will be 4-7 items per box and they say they will range in value from $40-$75.  I am always on the lookout for Canadian boxes and so while I’m not from Newfoundland nor have I ever been there I was still interested in this box.

The box was heavy on one side this time and missing the do not cut warning.  Inside had a book of some sort on top and a few other things I couldn’t see.

First out of the box is a Hometown Pride sticker.  It has the provincial colours and outline of the province on it.  This one is not suited for me to use but thankfully one of my husband’s coworkers is a Newfie and I think we’ll give this to him.

Claire’s Community Cookbook

This cookbook is a collection of recipes put together in support of a little girl who had Cerebral Palsy.  Every one of the cookbooks sold gives a donation to her charity.  I like this kind of cookbook as they tend to have more recipes of things I might actually make then say one from a celebrity chef.

Tval Ginger Handmade Soap-$5.00

This soap smells very nice.  It doesn’t have a crazy ginger scent and also has cocoa butter for softening.  I have quite a bit of soap to use up but once I get to this one it’ll be a good one.

Foggy Island Candles in Bakeapple-$6.00

This candle smells wonderful!  It is one of their pie in a jar candles.  I’m not sure what the scent is, as it’s not regular apple pie.  It has a sweet smell.  All of the candles I’ve received from them before have burned well and given a smell to the whole house, so I don’t think this one will be any different.

Indigena Blueberry Bliss Face Masque-$12.00

This powder just needs to be mixed with water to make a paste and applied.  It is good for acne and as a clarifying mask to remove excess oils for smoother skin.  It smells like slightly rotten blueberries in it’s powder form but all of the reviews for it say it’s amazing so I will give it a try.

Crochet Bath Puff by Cheerio Creations

My crochet skills are nowhere near good enough to make something like this. This puff is made out of the same yarn you’d use for a dishcloth, so it’ll stand up to body scrubbing well.  I think variegated yarns are the best and I buy them just to have them.  This really is a great thing in this box.

I thought last month was my last box from Loves It but I got this one.  As normal, I still never have any clue what to expect to be in it besides it all being from Newfoundland.  There is a good mix of products. I just wish for a few of the thing that they would tell me what or why it was included. Value is always hard for this box as I don’t always know where things are from. Only one of the items this month is a duplicate so that is way better than last time.  I will still let them know since they have specifically asked about it.  If you want to check them out click here to go to their site.
