Klean Box Holiday Box December 2017

Klean Box is a surprise box full of bath and beauty items from KleanKristi on Etsy.  Each month she sends out a box full of items she makes herself and sometimes she includes items from fellow Etsy sellers as well.  Boxes start at $20 per month and you can get 6 or 12 month plans as well.  She only ships to the United States but due to an ordering glitch on Etsy I was able to order it.  Thankfully we were able to work out a deal with the shipping because it’s rather high to ship to Canada and I was disappointed to possibly have to cancel my order.  Kristi has been fabulous to deal with and I’m hopeful with what I’m going to be getting!

There was a slight delay in getting this box because once again she offered a choice of scents and I choose one that she had to make more of.  Inside it was all done up for Christmas.

20170122_181322There is a large collection of gift tags.They all have a vintage feel.  These will get put away until next year but they are lovely and I like them.

Inside this plaid bag are the items I chose.  We have a Room And Body Spray and a Hand Sanitizer in Sugared Spruce scent.  These smell just like a pine tree and it’s fantastic.  I doubt that I will use it as a body spray but it will add a pleasant smell to the house.

It’s fun how some things were inside more little presents.  In this bag is a Kandy Kane Kolor Stix.  It is like a lip balm but it has a red colour and candy cane smell.

In another fancy box, we had a ball of Peppermint Bath Salts.  How they managed to get it half white and half red I’ll never know.  I love bath salts and am happy to get more in any shape.

20170122_181614There is a Santa belt tree ornament.  Sparkly and heavy actually.

20170122_181640A ball of soap that is a snowball.  It is also covered in sparkles and smells like snow fairies.

There is a fuzzy pair of socks and what must be a snowball?   I like the socks and the other thing will go to the girls to play with.  They’ll love it and it’s soft enough that it should cause no pain if it hits someone.

This bit of awesomeness is a LED Pocket Lamp.  It lays flat and then you pop up the tree and it lights up.  It is not super bright but will do in a pinch.

There was also a cup of hot chocolate lollipop and a gift tree ornament.

20170122_181929Lastly, tucked on the bottom, were these blank cards.  They could either be recipe cards or just note pages.  They have Christmas motifs on the corners.

This was my last box from Klean Box and it was great.  Everything in it fit the theme perfectly and the main items were handmade, which is what you expect from anything on Etsy.  I will not be able to renew this box as getting it the first place was an error but I have enjoyed it and if you are in the US I would check out her Etsy shop and see what you can find.

 

Klean Box Boss Babe Box November 2016

Klean Box is a surprise box full of bath and beauty items from KleanKristi on Etsy.  Each month she sends out a box full of items she makes herself and sometimes she includes items from fellow Etsy sellers as well.  Boxes start at $20 per month and you can get 6 or 12 month plans as well.  She only ships to the United States but due to an ordering glitch on Etsy I was able to order it.  Thankfully we were able to work out a deal with the shipping because it’s rather high to ship to Canada and I was disappointed to possibly have to cancel my order.  Kristi has been fabulous to deal with and I’m hopeful with what I’m going to be getting!

The box was packed and wrapped and protected with squiggles.  Once I got through all that I could see more bags and packages all nestled inside.  There was not an info card in there this month so I’ll be doing a bit of guessing as to what things are.

20161221_175209

These are temporary tattoos.  I think this might be one big arm band tattoo.  If it’s not, it could be.  I don’t really do the metallic tattoo trend but maybe one day I will have a good reason to.

Overall Beauty Minerals Vegan Mineral Makeup

I think this one is called Bright.  It is a lovely yellow and while that might not seem like a shade you would want to wear it’s actually great. This will be an eyeshadow for me.

“Whipped” Soap

This is a glycerin soap with a dark base and a gold top layer.  It has little balls of white and gold for decoration on the front.  The soaps are always huge and almost too pretty to use.

Manage 888 Multi-Purpose Brush

This is an interchangeable head brush.  It has brow, lip, and shadow ends that you can switch out so you don’t need to have four different brushes with you at all times. It’s a neat idea but I wish it came with a case.

Inside this box was a necklace and a bracelet.  The necklace threads through a loop on one end to form the circle and the bracelet says “Like A Boss”.

Next out we have a three pack of hair ties.  I have a small pile of these but they disappear  all the time so I am happy to get more.

20161221_175724Moon Sparkle Roll-On Perfume

Ooooo…this smells nice!  There was a choice of ones you could pick and I’m happy with the one I chose.  It is a slightly floral/musk scent and it works for me.

20161221_175739

Khocoate Kisses Kolor Stix

I thought this was a lip balm but it’s actually more like lipstick.  It is a shimmery bronze colour.  I like it and will wear it and it has a slight Khalua smell to it so that’s a good thing too.

This bag had everything you need for your next nail art project.  The polish is a pure gold with micro shimmer.  There are also two phials of glitter and some nail charms.  My nails are not nearly long enough to use the charms but maybe one day. I might end up using the glitter for crafts instead of nails too.

20161221_175906-1

Lastly, there is a note card, paper clip, and confetti.

This was my fifth box from Klean Box and it was great.  Everything in it fit the theme perfectly and the main items were handmade, which is what you expect from anything on Etsy.  I can’t wait to get more boxes from here and am now even more excited that I was able to actually get the box.  I’m sad I only have one more box coming.

 

Klean Box Think Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Box October 2016

Klean Box is a surprise box full of bath and beauty items from KleanKristi on Etsy.  Each month she sends out a box full of items she makes herself and sometimes she includes items from fellow Etsy sellers as well.  Boxes start at $20 per month and you can get 6 or 12 month plans as well.  She only ships to the United States but due to an ordering glitch on Etsy I was able to order it.  Thankfully we were able to work out a deal with the shipping because it’s rather high to ship to Canada and I was disappointed to possibly have to cancel my order.  Kristi has been fabulous to deal with and I’m hopeful with what I’m going to be getting!  This month was my birthday month and she sends out a double box full of surprises for that as well so there might be a mix of things that fit both themes.

20161108_144501

The box came very full and very heavy.  The theme was obvious right off the bat.

This is a cool thing!  You attach it to the back of your phone and it can then be a kickstand or a way to give you better grip on your phone.  The only issue I see is that I change my case pretty regularly and I’m not sure how many times you can stick and unstick this.

20161108_144544

Oops!  I thought I got this right side up.  Oh well…this is a blank all occasion card and envelope.  I have lots but this one is cute and it’ll be used.

20161108_144558

This is a Get Happy Bath Bomb.  It doesn’t really say what the scent is but it smells sweet and nice.  It is one of the bigger ones I’ve received and I’m going to add it to my pile of bath products.

20161108_144610

This is a Sugar Cookie Sugar Soap Scrub.  It come with the little spoon to get it out.  I always forget to use my scrubs and really need to get them out more.  Especially now that it’s freezing here and my skin could use some pampering.

20161108_144628

Back to something that is for sure with the theme, a breast cancer ribbon stress ball.  I am always overcome with the urge to throw this at people instead of squeezing it so I think it’s best to just give it to the girls to play with.

20161108_144639

These are so pretty!  They have pink beads encircled by silver wire.  I love them!

20161108_144650

This is a breast cancer nail file.  The message is one that needs to be shared and you can’t go wrong having one of these around everywhere you are.

20161108_144715

These hair clips are good.  They have a funky pattern on them that will add some flair when you wear them.  They had a price tag on the back for $10.00.

20161108_144726

So these are awesome….it’s an LED set of lights that spell out Happy Birthday!  I will get so much use from these with the girls and just randomly annoying co-workers.  They also had a tag on theme and they are $3.00.

20161108_144741

I don’t know the last time I ate a lollipop but these ones do tempt me.  My parents would never buy me the big swirly ones like this as a child and I so desperately wanted to have one.  Now  I have three and I don’t feel the crazing so much.

20161108_144754This is a full sized bottle of shower gel.  It has quite a strong perfumy smell to it but that might dissipate when used in the shower.  I like it though and the pump top makes it so much easier to use.

20161108_144810This is Kassidy’s Konfetti B-day Cake Soap.  I should have taken a side picture too so you could see the layers.  This part is the “icing” top with a candle.  The bottom half looks like fun-fetti cake.

20161108_144820This is a reusable shopping bag all folded up to look like a cupcake.  These are one of those things you always need to have in your car and that’s where this will end up one I open it.

20161108_144829This is such a cute little note pad that I don’t even want to use it.  The lined paper is what gets me!  It has a magnet on the back so you can stick it someplace handy.

20161108_144845

These two pencils are also upside down apparently.  I have the new method of making posts that WordPress has gone to.  I haven’t got it mastered yet.  I’m happy to get more pencils though.  They are good to have around, especially with two kids to get though school for the next 20 years.

20161108_144859I have never seen a puff with things in it before.  This is a nice big puff and since they get so gross after a few months of use I need more to keep switching out.

20161108_144910This Passionfruit Rose Lip Balm is nice.  It smells great and feels good on my lips.  I’m once again amazed at all the different things that this lady can make.  It seems like there is something new each box.

20161108_144947These little polishes were tucked in the bag with a few extras.  The tattoos are fun and the two polishes will work good together.  I’m a sucker for a glitter polish so that’s where I would go first but the Pink Chiffon is nice too.

Near the bottom of the box I found a wrapped present!  Inside was a sleep mask, soap, bracelet and magnet.  I like that she took the time to wrap them up and make it fun wen she could have just tossed them all in the box loose and I’d have still received the items but with less joy.

20161108_145133Last we have a wooden soap dish.  These make your soap last longer and since I don’t have one in my upstairs bathroom, it has a home.

This was my fourth box from Klean Box and it was great.  The box was a great mix of the theme and the birthday items.  It really says something about the person curating these that they would go out of their way just to make you feel special for your day.  Everything in it fit the theme perfectly and the main items were handmade, which is what you expect from anything on Etsy.  I can’t wait to get more boxes from here and am now even more excited that I was able to actually get the box.

 

Klean Box Macaroon Box September 2016

Klean Box is a surprise box full of bath and beauty items from KleanKristi on Etsy.  Each month she sends out a box full of items she makes herself and sometimes she includes items from fellow Etsy sellers as well.  Boxes start at $20 per month and you can get 6 or 12 month plans as well.  She only ships to the United States but due to an ordering glitch on Etsy I was able to order it.  Thankfully we were able to work out a deal with the shipping because it’s rather high to ship to Canada and I was disappointed to possible have to cancel my order.  Kristi has been fabulous to deal with and I’m hopeful with what I’m going to be getting!

20161011_141727 20161011_141735

The box is always well padded so nothing gets damaged or messed up.  She also includes the cutest little info card.  It tells you what Etsy shop the items are from and the values of the products as well.

20161011_141953

Macaroon Key Chain by Treasure2Remember-$3.95

This is not really something that I love but it is cute.  The little macaroon on the end is my favourite part.

20161011_141914

Pistachio Macaroon Whipped Sugar Scrub Soap by Klean Kristi-$4.00

OMG this smells so amazing I want to rub it all over myself and never stop.  It is so soft and fluffy.  It’s not like a regular sugar scrub in that it has the soft soap mixed in but you can feel the scrubby part of it when you rub it on.

20161011_142051

Lavender Vanilla Macaroon Lip Balm by Klean Kristi-$6.00

This is the first time I’ve received a lip balm from her and it is nice.  The lavender does make it seem like I’ve licked some soap but beyond that it smells nice.  It makes my lips feel smooth and it’s not overpowering.

20161011_142149

Mini Macaroon Fragranced Nail Polish Duo by Klean Kristi-$7.00

These are lemon and strawberry macaroon scented polishes.  The lemon one, to me, only smells like nail polish but the other one is more scented.  They are both really pretty and sparkly.  I didn’t think I’d enjoy the yellow one but I do.

20161011_141926

Almond Macaroon Mini Shampoo by Klean Kristi-$2.50

The almond smell totally comes though on this one.  I am sad (as always) when I get only a shampoo or conditioner in a box but as I go though conditioner way faster I keep a bottle around that can double as a mismatched one.  This woman seriously makes every single thing I could ever need.

20161011_141849 20161011_141845

Macaroon Coin Purse-$5.00

This is made out of some kind of rubber or latex and is squishy.  It’s not large enough for a card but is plenty big for cash and coins.

20161011_142022 20161011_142029

Macaroon Case-$1.00

I’ve received on of these before in another box and they are cute.  I still have no use for them but I like them.

20161011_141905

Macaroon Sticky Notes-$3.00

Sticky notes are one of my most loved things so these make me so happy!  The purple is a nice bonus.

20161011_141938

Macaroon Mechanical Pencil-$2.00

So this is a close second to the sticky notes.  It’s so thin but there is lead in it so it works and I like it.

20161011_142129

Macaroon Eraser-$1.00

This goes perfectly with the rest of the stationery that was included.  It could only be better if it was scented.

20161011_141827 20161011_142007

Macaroon Printable and Laminate by Klean Kristi-Bonus

The To-Do list is a bit crumpled from being in the box but so useful that it’s okay.  The laminate looks like it’ll make a great bookmark.

This was my third box from Klean Box and it was great.  The box has a value of $35.45, which is good.  Everything in it fit the theme perfectly and the main items were handmade, which is what you expect from anything on Etsy.  I can’t wait to get more boxes from here and am now even more excited that I was able to actually get the box.

 

Klean Box Awesome Ice Cream August 2016

Klean Box is a surprise box full of bath and beauty items from KleanKristi on Etsy.  Each month she sends out a box full of items she makes herself and sometimes she includes items from fellow Etsy sellers as well.  Boxes start at $20 per month and you can get 6 or 12 month plans as well.  She only ships to the United States but due to an ordering glitch on Etsy I was able to order it.  Thankfully we were able to work out a deal with the shipping because it’s rather high to ship to Canada and I was disappointed to possible have to cancel my order.  Kristi has been fabulous to deal with and I’m hopeful with what I’m going to be getting!

20160911_174320 20160911_174329

Things were all wrapped up in this box.  I love the polka dot tissue and ribbon.  I could smell something good in here.

20160911_174354

The info card is just so cute.  It tells you what’s in the box, who made it, and the retail price.

20160911_174637

Ice Cream Wish Bracelet-$3.49

This is made by Solitary Sandpiper.  You tie it on your wrist, make a wish, and then when it wears off your wish will come true.  I think it’s neat and will put it on, but I’m not sharing my wish with you!

20160911_174526

Neapolitan Soap-$7.00

This is made by Kristi and it is huge!  It is a mix of glycerin and shea butter soaps.  It’s so weird though because the top layer is kinda squishy.  I don’t even want to use it though because it’s so cute.

20160911_174650

Chocolate Ice Cream Lip Sugar Scrub-$4.00

I love the packaging on this.  This is another one made by Kristi.  If you look close you can see that she even has put sprinkles on the top.  I don’t use lip scrubs too often but since this is smaller I might use it up.

20160911_174615

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Fragranced Nail Polish-$8.50

This is a very pale mint colour with black flecks.  This polish is also made by Kristi.  It has a faint sweet smell but not really a mint chip scent.  It has a nice shimmer and I like it.

20160911_174724

Bamboo Wash Cloth Ice Cream Treat-$4.00

This is also very cute.  The cone and drips are paper and the cloth is the scoop.  There is a plastic cherry stuck to the top.  I think that once I pull it out it will just unfold and be ready to go.

20160911_174510

Ice Cream Packaged Foot Socks-$2.50

These are made to be worn with a low cut summer shoe.  It’ll cover your toes and stop things from rubbing.  I have a few pairs of these but none that came in pink and look like and ice cream cone.

20160911_174447

Ice Cream Earrings-$4.00

These are made by Island Jewelry Art.  One is yellow and one is pink.  They are about an inch tall.  They are cute but not really something I would wear.

20160911_174711

Ice Cream Colored Pen-$2.00

I love pens and this one is cute.  It writes in pink ink and flows smoothly.  It is a little smaller then a regular pen but as long as it writes I’ll put it to use.

20160911_174543 20160911_174549

Ice Cream Sticky Notes-$3.00

The only thing better then a pen is sticky notes!  This has the cone and then three different coloured scoops.  These will be great to annoy my co-workers with.

20160911_174415 20160911_174420

This double sided print is a bonus item.  It is nice and I like both sides.

20160911_174742

There was also Kristi’s card, Island Jewelry’s card, and a discount code for items in the shop.

This was my second box from Klean Box and it was great.  The box has a value of $38.49, which is good.  Everything in it fit the theme perfectly and the main items were handmade, which is what you expect from anything on Etsy.  I can’t wait to get more boxes from here and am now even more excited that I was able to actually get the box.

Klean Box Wacky Watermelon July 2016

Klean Box is a surprise box full of bath and beauty items from KleanKristi on Etsy.  Each month she sends out a box full of items she makes herself and sometimes she includes items from fellow Etsy sellers as well.  Boxes start at $20 per month and you can get 6 or 12 month plans as well.  She only ships to the United States but due to an ordering glitch on Etsy I was able to order it.  Thankfully we were able to work out a deal with the shipping because it’s rather high to ship to Canada and I was disappointed to possible have to cancel my order.  Kristi has been fabulous to deal with and I’m hopeful with what I’m going to be getting!

20160802_14055720160802_140635

Opening up the box I could see that everything was snugly packed with squiggles to keep things safe.  Once I removed the squiggles I could see the theme staring me in the face!  Watermelon was everywhere.

20160802_140650

There is a little tiny info list included.  It tells what items are in there, who made them, and their retail value.

20160802_140810

Watermelon Cooler Votive Candles-$3.00

These are made by CountryRichCreations and smell so wonderfully like watermelon that I don’t even want to burn them.  They are red on top and green on the bottom and a great start to this box.

20160802_141031

Watermelon Slice Soap-$5.50

This is one of the items made by Kristi and it’s awesome.  It is made with glycerin and shea butter soaps and looks and smells just like a real watermelon.  This is a fairly substantial bar of soap and will last a long time.

20160802_140717 20160802_140724

Wacky Watermelon Sugar Scrub-$4.00

How cute is this?!  This scrub is made with a blend of four different oils and sugar.  It has little soap “seeds” in it too.  I think it’s nice that she included a scoop to get it out with.  This one is also made by Kristi.

20160802_140936

Wild Watermelon Fragrance Nail Polish-$8.50

So I guess this lady makes everything!  I didn’t even know you could just make nail polish.  This polish is 5-free and if I’m honest, doesn’t smell all that much like watermelon.  The colour is nice but it has black flecks in it to represent the seeds and they look a bit odd.  The main shade makes up for it though.

20160802_141012

Watermelon Tinted Lip Balm-$3.25

This is also great.  It is a shimmery pink colour and feels smooth and soft on.  I have had a lack of lip balms in boxes lately so I’m happy to get this one.

20160802_140747

Hand Crocheted Facial Cloth-$2.00

I have a tiny one of these for my toner and I didn’t even know they made them bigger for your whole face.  This will be perfect for the micellular water I’ve been using lately as a cleanser.

20160802_140704

Plush Watermelon Change Purse-$1.50

This is cute and I love it!  I know it was probably picked up at a dollar store but it makes me happy and I’m going to find a reason to use it.

20160802_140918

Kitschy Watermelon Ring-$3.50

This is made by Island Jewelry Art and is adjustable.  I have no idea where I would actually wear this but I like it and think it fits both a summer and watermelon theme perfectly.

20160802_140858

Watermelon Fine Line Marker-$1.50

I love pens and this one is right up my alley.  It has a black gel ink that flows smoothly.

20160802_140834 20160802_140840

Watermelon Double-Sided Bookmark-Bonus

One can never have too many bookmarks.  It’s a thoughtful addition to the box.

This was my first box from Klean Box and it was great.  The box has a value of $32.75, which is good.  Everything in it fit the theme perfectly and the main items were handmade, which is what you expect from anything on Etsy.  I can’t wait to get more boxes from here and am now even more excited that I was able to actually get the box.
