Kloverbox review – September 2018

Hi sweeties,

Another month = another Kloverbox. I was really looking forward to review this one since I saw that there was a nail polish and some candy inside.

If you still don’t know how this subscription box works; here it goes:

  • Choose your plan. Choose from monthly or 3 and 6 months shipments and save! The more months you take, the cheaper the box gets.
  • Kloverbox will choose the best cruelty-free/vegan natural/organic products of that month and ship them to you.
  • Then it’s up to you to discover all their products and feel happy while using them since they’re all eco-friendly. NO GUILT AT ALL, yay!

The September box includes a facial cream, a dry shampoo, a face mask and flushable derrière wipes.

Delizioso Skin Care – Coffee Berry Brighten Facial Cream

44593719_2007551639327647_8848232280208965632_n
The first thing you notice about this bottle is that it is very stiff which makes it very difficult to get some of the product out. I do like the scent of the cream but to me it smells more like coffee and almonds than coffee and berries. The cream is quite thick which makes it take longer to be fully absorbed in the skin. I tried the cream once and unfortunately I had some break outs on my skin (I think because the cream contains coconut oil). That made me decide to only use the cream on my body and not on my face.

regular retail price: $ 38.00

 

 

Nature Derived Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo is something I probably use every week since my hair is super oily and I’d have to wash my hair pretty much every day. It’s the second time I have tried a powder dry shampoo in stead of the regular spray ones. It worked pretty well! You apply it on your scalp with a make-up brush and the powder gets absorbed quite quickly. I will definitely be taking this one on the plane with me next weekend since I’ll be on a 10h flight to Egypt and my hair ALWAYS looks greasy upon arrival.

regular retail price: $ 12.00

Potion Handmade Face Forward Mask V. 2.0

44481321_294054411207197_1800658879864897536_n
This product was not really my favorite. It’s a powder mask that needs water added to it before applying it on the face. You’re supposed to mix 1 teaspoon of the powder with 1 teaspoon of water but that made the paste quite thick and almost impossible to apply. Maybe more water will do better next time but I don’t think I’ll be using it again. I prefer a mask that’s ready to be put on fast than still having to mix things up. I’d also say this mask is very overpriced for the amount of product you get.

regular retail price: $ 18.00

 

 

Tailfeathers Flushable Derrière Wipes – coconut hibiscus

44615247_245825056093581_9070177953635106816_n.jpg
What I love about this product is that it is totally made out of plant-based ingredients and never was tested on animals. It also has a nice smell to it; I can’t really say if it’s really coconut and hibiscus scented though. On the downside, the quality of the wipes itself could really be better. While trying to get a wipe out of the package my finger went straight through it. Because of that I’ll just be using it as face wipes for my daughter in stead of as derrière wipes.

regular retail price: $ 6.00

Chai Castle – loose tea samples

Hi sweeties,

The last two weeks I have been trying out some tea flavors from Chai Castle.

Chai Castle is a local BC family business owned by Dara Khamsi. They offer high quality tea sourced from trusted tea estates and they donate a part of their profit to organizations working with animals and children; how great is that? Not only are you drinking some amazing tea but you’re also giving back to animals and people in need. Make sure you keep reading all the way until the end; there’s a nice discount code waiting for you. Continue reading

Love conquers all ♥

Hi sweeties,

Many of you seem to wonder how it is possible for two people of different cultures and religions to have a relationship or even to be married. All I can tell you right now is that it is possible, but it takes work. I live by the rule ‘ teamwork makes the dream work’ so as long as you stick together, you can make things work. In this article today I will talk about our story in general and how we have dealt with all our differences. Let’s start at the beginning…

‘On Yogurt’ = ice fried yogurt heaven

Hi sweeties,

This week we FINALLY paid a visit On Yogurt. And yes I say finally because this shop is literally only 300m away from our apartment and I wanted to go there for such a long time but it just never happened. While I was in Belgium I saw a post of them on Instagram mentioning that they had a limited edition watermelon taco. If you see the picture you can totally understand why I had to try it, right?

HALO TOP: low-calorie & high protein ice cream

Hi sweeties,

I’m back in Vancouver after having spend about 5 weeks with my family in Belgium, so I thought it would be time to introduce you to a very popular ice cream brand that I have recently discovered: Halo Top. Halo Top is the new obsession for all Americans, yes, it has even gotten more popular than Ben & Jerrys. The brand is known to be a low-calorie and high protein ice cream AND they really want to please everyone by having created dairy flavors and non-dairy/vegan flavors. So how do they still make their ice cream so sweet, you wonder. Well, they use 3 natural sweeteners: stevia, erythritol (natural sugar alcohol) and cane sugar. Since Canada only has 12 of their 25 flavors in it’s stores and my supermarket did not even have these 12, I just choose 2 flavors to try. Continue reading

Tiramisu with strawberries and Biscoff cookies

Hi sweeties,

We all know that cooking is not my thing but I do love baking. Don’t get me wrong, I still fail many times, but the times that I do succeed in what I’m trying to create the pleasure is double. Thanks to my best friend Raïssa I got to know a different version of tiramisu. At one of her Birthday parties she made one with strawberries and speculaas/biscoff in stead of the regular one. IT IS THE BEST!  Continue reading
