Every month, you'll receive some of the best natural, cruelty-free and organic beauty, lifestyle, nutrition and healthy home products. You'll get to try affordable eco-friendly products, handpicked by health conscious curators, so you can incorporate better products into every aspect of your life.

The Cost: $25/month

What You Get: Receive 4-6 premium products to sample, each from top brands and hand-picked by our health conscious curators in beauty, health, nutrition and home categories.

Pacifica Indian Coconut Nectar Body Butter- Afull size product and it smells like heaven! Coconutty vanilla goodness makes me think of tropical vacations. I like Pacifica's lotions and perfumes (but not so much their makeup).
Value: $15
Deco Naturals Mask- This is a huge 4oz glass jar of Deco Naturals Prickly Pear + Aloe Clay Mask.  I really like clay masks and they are one of the few wash off masks that I'll actually use. It has a very light fragrance and is made with primarily white kaolin clay. Oily skin rejoice!
Value: $26
Natalie There's Key Chain Pouch- This pouch is made out of cork! It has a fun texture and it's recyclable and renewable. Cork is harvested from cork oaks from their regenerating bark. I had no idea cork was so interesting! It's also recyclable and biodegradable. Cork trees are harvested very 9 years and generally live for 300 years. Cork is waterproof, stain resistant and basically awesome. I am SO using this (already-it's in my bag).
Value: $14
Wash  Beauty Original Konjac Sponge- 100% Pure Konjac for a gentle exfoliating wash. I've used these and really like them for their gentle scrubbiness but they're sort of annoying to store. They start out crunchy and hard but get super soft and squishy when wet.
As a side note, the description says that Konjac is alkaline and will help manage the pH of your skin. I just wanted to say that you don't want alkaline skin. The acid mantle is the thin layer over your skin that protects it from bacteria and environmental contaminants. You want the acid mantle to be just that--acidic. A pH of 4.5-5.5 is optimal and yes, your skincare products can either help or hinder this (especially cleansers).
While the sponge may have been alkaline while it was alive, it's now dead and contains no water until you stick it under the faucet. So have no fear that the sponge itself is going to change your pH. It's not.
Value: $14

VERDICT: Kloverbox is a wonderful way to experience new and interesting earth - friendly, natural and/or organic products. I'm consistently impressed with the contents. This box has a retail value of over $60 which is fabulous for a box of this type. Plus all these full sizes are fantastic to see. Other natural and organic beauty boxes haven't really come through for me value wise. In this case the little cork zip-pouch is the highlight for me. I want to see if it floats because it would be nice to use at the beach for my ID and such. Plus I can't stop touching it.

  2. I loved this box! Normally I'm a bigger fan of "the more the better" when it comes to samples, but lately I've been interested in smaller amounts but full sizes with better curation. I think this one has a great value. I got the sample mask as you although I kind of want to try the other option too! I love how huge the konjac sponge is! It's probably 2-3 times the size of the one I currently have lol ;)

  3. I LOVED this Kloverbox!! I cancelled after getting the May one, because I didn't like the products at all. They said they were sending June, and I didn't protest, and it's really great. The curation is so lovely. It almost seems to me that they have an off month, then a good month, rinse and repeat. LOL.
