December’s theme for Kloverbox is Happy Holidays, bring products that will help you shine! Kloverbox is a subscription box that not only is natural and has a focus on indie brands, but they also find unique and interesting products as well.
Kloverbox is an eco-friendly, organic lifestyle box and I love how they introduce new, unique and innovative products each month. Kloverbox delivers deluxe and full size products and I have been impressed with their packaging and curating of their boxes. You can subscribe to Kloverbox either as a month-to-month at $25/monthly, 3 month subscription at $23.75/monthly or a 6 month subscription at $22.50/monthly
Kurandza Handmade Bracelet This is absolutely beautiful ~ this handcrafted bracelet as a hard core and is cloth wrapped in teal, purple, green dots with one lone gold accent on a black background. The cloth is a cotton fabric with a capulana wax-print. I love the mission statement too ~ these bracelets are made by the women in Mozambique and Kurandza invests in their future thru education and employment opportunities. Kloverbox has teamed up with Kurandza and is sending a girl in Mozambique for a year!
Alas, I am from good peasant stock, so I do not have dainty hands ~ these bracelets are 2 7/8 inches diameter and since they are inflexible, I can’t get it over my knuckles which is the widest part of my hand (about 3 1/2 inches in diameter). If this was slightly stretchy or opened with a clasp, it would have fit beautifully around my wrist. I will figure out how to use this as it is so beautiful ~ I might use it as a ring to hold my delicate scarves. RV $25.00
Z Skin Cosmetics Zz Mineral Highlight Powder I love the Z Skin Simply Organic Sunblock I got earlier this year so I am excited to try another product from this brand. This is a mineral highlighter and it is a pretty pink with little dark bits in it ~ I am not sure what those are ~ that could be the beet root or mica. Zz Mineral Makeup uses exotic minerals sourced from all over the world ~ volcanic minerals, underwater cave crystals and vibrant rainbow hued minerals. These minerals will help with both healing blemishes as well as soften fine lines and wrinkles. This powder buffs out to nothing, quite frankly, but it makes for a great finishing powder on my skin! The pinkish shade brightens up my skin tone without being glitter or harsh.
My only complaint is the packaging. Z Skin should put a plastic tab protector on this as it was quite messy when I opened it up initially, as a lot of the powder was already in the main sifter area, as you can see in the photo above.

Evelyn Iona Green Tea Primer Yeah! I have one of these already, but I really like it for the wintertime. I rarely use primer, so I hardly purchase them ~ this one feels really thick and heavy on initially, but then magic-presto, it sinks in and leaves no footprint behind, but just a smooth canvas on your skin, making makeup application look better and last longer. This not only has green tea in it, which is known for its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic benefits, but also more anti-antioxidant, anti aging ingredients with vitamin E and resveratrol, along with soothing chamomile. Shake well before using and a little goes a long way with this white colored primer ~ it you apply too much, it will pill up on your skin. 20 mL $29.50 Promo Code: The first 10 Kloverbox subscribers to place an order on Evelyn Iona Online Shop can use promo code Klover=Awesome for 25% off!

Loba Mane Transformative Hair Mask This is the most exciting item in the box for me! This is a rich restorative hair treatment that smells like plumeria to me! It reminds me of the tropics for some reason ~ and this botanical hair treatment contains oils of coconut, buriti, olive, argan, tucuma and avocado to help bring back shine and smoothness, while strengthening your hair. It will also help reduce fading if you color your hair and since I color my hair all the time, this is nice to have on hand. Just apply some of the product to clean, wet hair and leave on for 3 to 10 minutes, then rinse off. This is a made in the USA vegan, natural and certified organic plant based product that is free from GMO’s, sulfates, parabens, salts, petrochemicals and is cruelty free. 2 oz $10.00 Promo Code: Save 20% off purchases at Loba Mane with code KLOVERBOX20
