LOWTOXBOX Launch Box Review by Mel – September 2017

LOWTOXBOX are healthy, natural, And Organic. Eco-friendly, ethical, Fair trade and cruelty free! Yes that’s a lot of goodness rolled into one box! And what’s more they even plant a tree for every box sold!!

Lucy is the founder of this box; I love her drive and enthusiasm. When I first started to contact her a few month’s back via email I could almost feel how passionate she was just from reading her replies. You can tell that she has not rushed into setting up LOWTOXBOX; I have a habit of noticing everything. I do not know whether it stems from my management background or having two boys… but I tend to see things and mull them over in my mind. I noticed that the Website has so much attention to detail and is very professionally done. Lucy even did a pre launch box and took it to exhibitions to promote her baby – sorry her company.
I even wonder to myself what she has done before this, I am not going to deny being a little nosy, but she has business sense even down to the self-advertising branding on the Tote Bags … that is clever. I mentioned it in my video that you can now watch on our YouTube Channel by clicking play below…

So below is the pricing to get yourself a LOWTOXBOX:

  • £22.50 month by month (£18.75 plus £3.75 P&P).
  • 3 Month’s Prepay £64.50 – £21.50 each month (£17.75 per month plus £3.75 P&P).
  • 6 Month’s Prepay £120 – £20 each month (£16.25 per month plus £3.75 P&P).
  • One off Box – £25 – no subscription needed.

It is worth a mention that the above cost even includes a Tree; yes I know I have already said that, but I wanted to tell you again. It is such a lovely idea to give back to the environment.
So What’s in the Box?

  • Ready Raw Bagel Bites – 90g – RRP £3.99

  • Living Naturally Natural Stain Remover – 60g – RRP £3.49
  • LOWTOXBOX Long Handled Natural Cotton 5oz Tote Bag – First Box Bonus item! RRP £2.95

Total Contents Value = £47.51
So, the total value is over double the cost … we are winning already ladies. You want me to get onto the best bit I know… the TESTING! And since there are food and drink items included in this Box it makes the testing part more fun!

The first item I wanted to try was the Awake Organics Clean Deodorant. I have been wanting to try these since I have seen several brands pop up recently in different subscription boxes. I tried the solid bar type that you run under water and found them awful. I am now on day 3 of using this and I am quietly impressed, ok I am never quiet but this is GOOD. It has a slightly exfoliating texture to it and it smells like a spa product, really fresh and clean. I did struggle a little with my long nails getting it out of the pot, but nothing a little spatula can’t solve. I need to test the entire pot, and also use it after my underarm wax to ensure it does not irritate me; but I am pretty confident that this will be getting bought again. The fact it is only a tiny pot is actually a plus! Handbag size is a winner in my eyes.
The Little Miracles drink I popped into the fridge to chill overnight before I drank it. I am guilty of not drinking enough, I know it is bad but I do not like the taste of water. I knew by looking at it that I would like this, I am a fan of cherry and I know agave is a natural sweetener as I use it for my son’s food. I will be buying more of these; I hope that I can source them locally as I do struggle sometimes where I live.
Next up I tried the most expensive and impressive item in the box to look at. I knew when I handled it on the live video that this was a quality item. The Vetivert & Co face balm. When I opened this I instantly remembered a Neal’s Yard Rose one I had. It is very similar in consistency. It is a solid balm; the smell of citrus hits your senses instantly. Yes I did want to eat it; I can’t help it when things smell good enough to eat! This could be used anywhere I am sure, but as it is marketed as a Face Balm I thought for testing reasons I would go with that. So I cleansed my face, tweezed my brows, re cleansed to get rid of stray hairs and then swirled my finger over the top of the balm. I have to say that this was amazing on softening my skin post brow tweeze. I had absolutely no dryness the next day. I could not leave this on my face all day though, but I do not think that’s the purpose of these balms. They are more for intense hydration or overnight treatment. This is going to last me about a year, a little goes a long long way and the pot is fairly big. I am very happy with this item.
The one item I was not expecting in the box has to be the Living Naturally Stain Remover. This smells like lemon sherbet sweets. I have to be honest I keep smelling it and I am tempted to chop it into cubes and place it in my drawers as I think everything will smell amazing after a short while. But I know that this is not the intended purpose. Having two boys I get through an immense amount of washing in my house, so I will be using this when I have some stubborn stains to remove. I have to say it is interesting the amount of alternate products you can get now that I never knew even existed.
I have a nut allergy so cannot eat the Paleo Bar, but my friend and nail tech lady Martyne is really into these products and I already have a couple put away for her to take along to my next appointment. She already subscribes to a Box that exclusively provides healthy snack options, so I am sure that she will enjoy this.
I really do love the Tote Bag; I use these all of the time. I will be sure to spread the word on LOWTOXBOX whenever I am asked. It is very high quality and not at all flimsy.
My Verdict?
If you want a box that is great value for money as well as kind to the environment, then this IS THE BOX. This is a great all rounder as it is not just beauty, so you get to try many products and sample before you buy.
In my opinion this is a box to watch, they are in it for the long haul. All the best to Lucy with your venture, and thank you for sending me the box to review.
