Giveaway - natural organic and eco products

My daughter was very excited to tell me a couple of weeks ago about a subscription service she had signed up for.  You get a box every month containing samples and full size products that are all organic and non toxic and echo friendly. She lives in America. As we discussed this we agreed that often we want to try out something new, but then never find it on the shelves, or don't want to lay out a huge amount of money for something we might not in fact find that we like.  So we went looking for an Australian alternative.  The idea was that we would share the contents of our boxes over skype, so her enthusiasm got me quite excited about the idea.
After much consideration we settled on notoxbox  and I received my box this week.  This is what I received (photos and descriptions taken from their website)

maeve rosehip serum

Maeve Rosehip face serum

100% certified organic rosehip oil.
  Rosehip is packed full of Omega’s, antioxidants and essential fatty acids. Regular use can significantly improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars and stretch marks, boost moisture levels and leave your skin smooth and radiant. Just add 2-3 drops to palms and gently massage into freshly cleansed face & neck. 

phytocare papaya ointment
Made from ALL NATURAL ingredients and 100% Petrochemical Free! Papaya fruit is a fantastic source of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes. A special fermentation process concentrates these nutrients and cultivates beneficial probiotics. Great for dry lips, dry or irritated skin, protects against wind and cold, and promotes skin elasticity.

happy eye patches
Enriched with plant extracts & moisturisers, the patch cools and comforts on contact while nourishing and hydrating the skin. Tired eyes are soothed and refreshed. Helps with puffiness, swelling & dark circles.
ginger people ginger soother
Ginger can soothe the throat and stomach, warm the internal organs, and ease nausea and ailments from colds to headaches. It’s a powerful antioxidant with over 12 constituents said to be superior to Vitamin E, and helps neutralise free radicals, widely recognised as a common cause of inflammation.
olive leaf drops
These drops combine the power of fresh-picked Olive Leaf Extract, an antioxidant known for cardiovascular & immune support, and  UMF® 10+ Manuka Honey for its unique antibacterial properties. Olive Leaf Drops are convenient, easy-to-use and portable, for regular use at any time of day.

pukka chai tea
Pukka chai teas

100% organically grown and fairly traded Chai made with rejuvenating and protective tea, and cinnamon and ginger to keep you warm. Cardamon is beautifully aromatic. Licorice is sweet and soothing. One deliciously warming cuppa!

Original, vanilla or green chai. 
I also got lots of coupons - for free shipping, special offers for reviewing products etc.  I have signed up for three months, and so far I am liking what I am seeing.  There is an online shop with lots of wonderful products like coconut oil, chia seeds etc, and the prices all seem good. There are also pages of wonderful information on the goodness of coconut oil and ginger, I have signed up for their newsletter so that I don't miss anything.  Ok I am off to go and make up another cup of that wonderful chai - all my favorite flavors!
Go to their website for a chance to win win-a-6-pack-of-matts-munchies drawing is June 30th
Disclaimer: I was not given anything for this review - it is entirely my own observations.  If you do happen to sign up for a subscription please write and tell them you heard about them from my blog and I will get  5.00 credit in their store.  I signed up for my 3 months subscription as a gift and for some reason you get a 15.00 credit which is a great deal I think.  I just ordered some coconut oil, buckwheat kernels  and quinoa, and with my 15.00 coupon and free shipping for June it cost me 6.00.  Happy me :)


  1. What a fun box to receive in the mail.
    I hope you enjoy each and every one of these organic products. Who knows, maybe you'll get hooked on some of them where you can't live without them.
    The tea sounds delightful....I'll have a cuppa.
    Happy Happy You!

    1. that is sort of the idea, to try before you buy!

  2. Olive Leaf Drops are great, used them last year during a really bad cold.

    1. Deb,
      Lemon and honey in hot water is always my first action when a sore throat tickles, this just seems to be in an easier form!


I love interacting with all my readers, thank you for your comments. Have a great day!
