Birchbox Home Limited Edition Box


On top of my usual Birchbox full of beauty samples, I decided to purchase their limited edition Birchbox Home box "From the Garden" (I know I'm crazy). This limited edition collection features an array of garden-inspired home and lifestyle products valued at over $89. I'm always looking to green my routine and just ordered a Conscious Box which is also home-related. It will be interesting to compare the two. My Birchbox arrived in a shoe box sized box with very cute polka dots. Here's what was inside:


They included some cards about tips for Nurture, Provision, Nest and Slice/Dice.



I couldn't find this exact fragrance on the L'Occitane website but the box describes it as "a sensual and luminous union between jasmine from Grasse and bergamot from Italy." It's not in a spray bottle so you have to rub it on your body, which I know can change a scent. I think it's a light, spring fragrance. I liked it!


Loved the design of this candle and thought it was quite classy they included their own set of matches. It's described as "bold, fresh, citrusy and green; an original mix of green cilantro and sweet mandarin orange with a hint of watercress." Oranges is not exactly a scent I'd pick and the $60 price tag is a bit outrageous. But I always enjoy a candle!


Never tried a Tocca hand cream before but I was quite impressed. The scent was overpowering and it did a good job moisturizing. It is enriched with natural extracts from shea butter, avocado oil and aloe. It is lightly fragranced with pink tulip and green apple. I also loved the ladylike packaging!


This mini "grow your own basil" kit is great for apartment owners who can't exactly grow a garden. I think I'm going to pass it on to my brother's girlfriend who is obsessed with basil and I think will get more usage out of it than me.

What green home products do you enjoy?

  4. This looks like an amazing box...kinda wish I had bought it! P.S. the L'OCCITANE is from the spring la collection de Grasse. I just blogged about it last week, it was supposed to be online today but I didn't check!

  5. This looks like an awesome combo of products, and I'm kind of jealous that it's yours and not mine ;) I actually just signed up for Birchbox this morning, so this makes me look forward to receiving my first package even more!

  9. haha it smells very citrus-y. I don't think the box was worth $89... the candle pushed it over but it's a candle. POPSUGAR's boxes are $35 and feel worth more!
