Mighty Fix December 2017

Mighty Fix is a monthly subscription that sends you one product a month that can help your family live healthier.  Boxes start at $10.00 per month and there is a slight discount for a yearly join.  Shipping to Canada is $3.00 per month and free to the US.  You also have the option to add any items from their shop to your order each month with no extra shipping fees.  They also send out emails with member-only deals on items all through the month.  This was another one I had really wanted to try but they’ve only recently opened up shipping to Canada.  Once I found that out I jumped on board to see what I could get that would make my life healthier and hopefully easier too.

They didn’t cover the logo with a shipping label this month so I’m giving you the bag image you’ve all been missing 🙂

There were two cards in the bag this month.  One reminding you that you can send Mighty Fix as a gift for anyone that you think would like to get helpful tools in the mail.  The second card is the standard info card that comes with your package each month.  On the front is a message about why the item was selected, uses for it, and a little about it.  On the back is either a recipe or hints for the product.  This month it is a list of three recipes for making pesto.

RSVP International Silicone Spoon and Spatula-$6.00 each

They sent out these really awesome utensils this month.  The reason they chose them is that there is no leaching of chemicals from this silicone like there can be from plastics.  These are resistant to bacteria, stains, odours, and will not degrade.  They are safe up to 425 degrees and both of them are super flexible.  Top it off with being dishwasher safe and you have the best and most useful thing I’ve received this month.

I’m very happy with the offerings this month.  I can use this right away and will be once I get them washed.  I’m getting to try some things I’m sure I would never just buy and they are easy ways to make simple changes to try and keep my home and family in better health.  I’m glad that they opened up to Canada and can’t wait to see what other crazy things they send me next.

Sunday Mood November 2017

Sunday Mood is a monthly box that includes a mix of indie brands, vegan beauty lines, all-natural bath & beauty products, handmade jewelry, cool niche household items, art, specialty teas, and healthy treats.  They offer two different sizes of box, a sample box that has 2-3 deluxe samples and 1 full-size item or the full-size box that contains 4-6 full-size products.  They are priced at $25 and $44 but do go down with longer plans.  Shipping to Canada is $10 per box.  This is another one I picked up on Mother’s Day for 50% off or I would never have given it a go.  There was an additional Customs charge when it arrived, so that is something to keep in mind if you order.

The box felt heavy this month but opening left me thinking that it was a little scarce in items. Once again there is not an info card for the month.  There seems to be a bit of chatter online that there has been no response from customer service for people who have reached out and that the quality of the items has been dropping.  They are supposed to be all full sized products in the box and I know that I can say that that has not really been the case for a few months.  I really would like to get something that tells me about what I received personally.  I could forgive the lack of full sized items if I knew that what I was getting was worth it.

RoseVale Bath Bomb in Love-$2.69

This bath bomb smells very nice.  They are free of artificial colors and dyes and leave no residue in your tub.  I have been running very low on bath bombs and you can’t believe how happy this makes me.  I can only hope that Santa is reading my blog and brings me some for under the tree.

Freedom Natural Deodorant in Lavender Citrus-$17.00

Well, this was shockingly expensive.  It has a whole bunch of ingredients that make you feel good about wearing this.  It is also aluminum free, paraben free, phthalates free, and dye free.  The lavender comes through as the main scent and it goes on very dry and smooth.

Foxbrim Stretch Mark Oil-$13.95

This oil is formulated to heal stretch marks and scars using natural and organic ingredients.  It is cruelty-free and bottled in small batches.  I didn’t test this on my stretch marks yet but it feels nice on my hand.  It doesn’t leave me super shiny or greasy feeling even though it was definitely an oil that came out if the bottle.  It has almost no smell at all to it.

Numi Organic Pu-erh Chocolate Tea

Well, this month I only got two where last month I three so there’s a downer.  I still haven’t tried the other ones because I’m thinking I’m not going to enjoy them all that much.

I am just okay with the box this month. The items are fine but without a card or some idea of what I’m getting it’s a downer for me.  The value for this month is not available since I can’t identify parts of the box.  That is okay but I’d rather not have had the Customs fee on top.  If you go to check it out they do have a code on their site that says will get you some type of a discount upon checkout, but be aware of the issues that have been happening.

Rosalette Beauty Bag November 2017

Rosalette Beauty Bag is a monthly subscription that sends out makeup and beauty products.  They offer a few different plans, either 4 sample sized products or 5-6 products, mixed between sample and full sized.  Plans start at $13.90 a month and there are added shipping costs.  If you subscribe for a year there are discounts.  I have no beauty bags left in my sub rotation so I was on the lookout for a cheaper one to get me some fun things.  I chose the Deluxe Bag, which is the bigger of the two.  They do send out shipping notices so that’s nice and it turns out that they are a Canadian company too!!!!

20171208_194237

This sub showed up later than it normally does so that is the reason this review is a little later than some of the other ones for this bag.  There was not a thank you card this month nor is there an info card.

Not Soap, Radio The Stuff That Cupid Dips His Arrows In…..-37.5mL $1.92

There are another six words in the name of this soap and that is just crazy.  This is body wash that has pheromone activation.  It is a blend of blackberries and vanilla cream and can be used as a body wash or bubble bath.  It says it can help you get either that one night stand you want or find a long lasting relationship because you are now in control of your romantic destiny.  Let’s hope the Hubs enjoys it then 🙂

Jersey Shore Sun Mongongo Lip Conditioner-$15.00

There are two sizes of this available and this is the large one.  This is also packaged in the old label, which it says on the website they’ve recently changed.  This is vanilla coconut cream flavoured and surprisingly doesn’t smell that good.  It feels amazing on my lips though.  It is very creamy and feels almost thick on my lips but in a good way.  I like this lip balm and the fact that it’s anti-aging as well is a bonus.  Oddly it does not have any SPF value.

Barefoot Venus Argan Dry Body Oil in Poppy Fairy-8mL $3.00

This is a repeat item from last month.  I know that sometimes there will be repeats but feel it’s bad form to give the exact same thing two in a row. This version of this oil is not on the website.  Also, all of the other scents that come in this size of the tube are out of stock. This was a bit odd to put on.  I guess I read dry oil and wasn’t expecting it to be an oil.  It is.  Once you rub it in though it doesn’t feel oily at all.  The smell is soft and feminine.

Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator-20g $10.00

I have already received this sample before in a Birchbox and an Ipsy box. However, I like this cleanser a lot so I am glad to get more.  This has a super fine scrub in it that really polishes your skin without being hard on it.  You are supposed to use it a few times a week but I went more and still had no issues.

20171208_194400

Glow For A Cause Perfume in Wish-11g $16.00

This perfume solid is lovely.  It is a blend of light florals, white tea, bergamot, and light musks.  It is very feminine but the floral part is really light and I think this smells smart and somehow festive.  You can get this same scent in a vegan version of this solid or a roll-on.  I have received items from this brand before in this bag but not this product.

I am very happy with this box from them, even with the duplicate item. There is a great mix of beauty products and they’ve given me the makeup I’ve been missing from my other boxes.  The value of this month is $45.92.  That is great and so much higher than the price of the box.  The shipping was quick as well since they are Canadian and only a province over from me.  If you want to try them out they have a coupon that will get you 10% off any subscription, just type ROSALETTE at checkout.

 

 

Bitchy Box TOM November 2017

Bitchy Box is a TOM box with a difference.  They don’t provide feminine hygiene items, but instead items to help you get through that time of the month.  They will fill the box with a variety of sweet treats, salty snacks, and handpicked gifts.  They endeavor to make sure you don’t stab anyone while you are riding some fun hormonal shifts.  They have 3,6, or 12-month plans available, starting at $66.00, plus shipping to Canada.  I had seen some other people’s boxes from them and thought they looked fun so I’m trying them out.

Since American Thanksgiving is in November, most of the things I could see in this box reflected that.  They do a great job of matching the theme to the month if they can.

They include an info card that tells you the box name, “Let’s Get Ready to Gobble”, the items you will find inside, some recipes in the center, and info about the company on the back including all their social media links.

Harebrained “Menstralmania” Period Panties-$8.99

These are so cute!  The Ultimate Warrior was one of my favourite wrestlers back in the day and these are a perfect homage to him 🙂  There are still a few of the options I am hoping to get in the remaining months of this box but they are all really fun and great for more than just that time.

Cranberry Grape Natural Lip Balm-$3.28

This smells like wine and that makes it awesome!!!!  It feels almost thicker than a normal lip balm and it is creamier too.  It feels nice on the lips and that smell is wafting up from my mouth and I think this might be my favourite balm ever.

20171124_200738

Turkey Leg Headband-$9.00~

So there is no way the people creating this box could have known this but I LOVE festive headgear.  I have ones for pretty much every holiday during the year.  This will join that elite group of things and be brought out once a year in all its glory.

20171124_200813

Original Double Chocolate Chip Cookie Tin-$?

This is a cookie that is good for the next four months tucked into a decorative tin.  I will stick this into my snack drawer and have it with a cup of tea one night, all alone with no little people asking for a bite.

Nuccina Pumpkin Spice COokie Butter Dippers-$?

I am not a big fan of pumpkin spice anything.  I will give these a try but I don’t have all that much hope of liking them.  Maybe I can eat just the breadsticks with some peanut butter.

20171124_200746

Mini Apple Pie-$?

This didn’t survive shipping from the States very well.  It definitely did arrive before the expiry date listed on it!  I think this is a little odd of an inclusion but it fits the theme perfectly and it’s fun.

This month had another great selection of things.  I think that they really nailed the theme this month!  Everything in the box is made to make you feel better and less worked up about things that may go on for this time of the month.  I am not bothering with a value this month as half the box I can’t possibly price.  It’s enough to know that I’m happy and love everything!
