Product Review || Healthy Food Subscription Boxes


I'm back with a foodie post!!

I'm here to tell you about 2 different healthy food subscription boxes!
Now I'm a massive beauty lover, but I love trying out new food more, BUT! at the same time, watch what is going into my belly and making sure its good for me.
That is why I have chosen food subscription boxes that contain HEALTHY products.

The two I purchased to try out are Goodness Me Box and The Sugarfree Box.

Lets start with the Goodness Me Box.

Full of yummy clean eats each month, this healthy box of treats is $25 per month with free shipping. You can also choose to purchase a quarterly, bi-annual or annual subscription which in turn, drops the price of the monthly box.

With all items, they must fall into at least two of the following categories to be included: organic, sustainable, raw, gluten free, dairy free, sugar free or vegan.

With 6-10 picks in each box each month, this one is definitely value for money (June box actually contained 11 items!)
Adding the RRP of all full sized items (only 2 were small samples) it was around $40 in value, so straight off the bat, you are almost getting double your money back in SNACKS! Who could be upset about that??



Inside were the following goodies.

1.   Hart & Soul: Coconut Lentil Soup. $3.99
2.   Dr Karg's: Organic Crispbread. (Classic 3-Seed) (200g pack) $6.95
3.   Flavr: All Natural Water Enhancer. (Vanilla Lime) $5.95
4.   Well Naturally: No Sugar Added Dark Chocolate. $2.80
5.   Qi Tea: Organic Relax Tea. (Orange Chai) $4.99
6.   Live Organic: Extra Gentle Shea Butter Natural Soap. (90g) $5.99
7.   Celebrate Health: Organic Coconut Water. $3.00
8.   The Health Food Guys: Raw Protein Bites. (Coffee & Wattleseed) $4.50
9.   Leda Nutrition: Banana Leda Bar. $1.90
10. Pure By Phytocare: Papaya Ointment. $8.95
11. Blue Dinosaur: Paleo Bars. (Mac' Lemon) $3.95

Sooooo, as you can see... REALLY great value for money! Lots of little goodies to snack on and try! I haven't tried any of these bits before, except the sugar free chocolate (which was mint flavoured and I wasn't the biggest fan of it)

For a first impressions box, I'm loving it! So many cool bits inside and nothing that I wouldn't try out! I will definitely be keeping this box for a while longer!


Next up is the Sugar Free Box.


Sugar free box is pretty self explanatory. It's full of healthy goodies that are close to or 100% sugar free!
All products need to contain less than 5g of sugar per 100g and be free of hidden sugars and artificial sweeteners.
You can also get a vegan version of the box.

Same deal as above, you can do a month to month sub or you can go quarterly, bi-anual or annual.
Although there is the exception of getting the jumbo box for $39 per month (free shipping) OR you can go for the mini box at $25 per month. Stated as "all of the faves of the jumbo box, packed in a little box"
I went for the jumbo box and inside I received the following:

1. Mingle Seasoning. 120g $12.95
2. Nutrition Warrior: Super Protein Blend. 50g $7.95
3. The Haus of Health: Bean Bonanza Food Toppers. 100g $5.50
4. Matka Organic Blend Tea. 75g $22.95
5. Crazy as a Coconut: Coconut Oil. $1.50 per sachet.
6. Caveman Food: Lamb Coconut Curry. 400g $12.50

RRP of this box adds up to $66.35, so again, great value for money!

If I were to choose between the two, I'd have to say I was far more impressed with the Goodness Me Box. I think it's because it's full of more snacks than anything else.
Although I thought last months Sugarfree Box was better than this months.

I think July will be the decider if I keep the Sugarfree Box or just stay with the one.
Goodness Me Box's July box is going sugar free! SO! it will be the ultimate battle!

Have you tried any kind of food subscription services before?

Do you have any you'd like me to review?

Leave me a comment below!

These subscription boxes were paid for using my own money and are not a paid advertisement for either company. I genuinely like to read reviews on things before I purchase and get a little more info or insight into the product.

Product Review || Royal Essence Candle



I'm back with something I'm pretty excited to tell you about!

I was lucky enough to be contacted by the lovely people at Royal Essence to try out one of their beautiful soy wax candles.

Umm... Of course I wanted to!! I consider myself a bit of a candle connoisseur. AKA i own and burn a lot of them.
The thing that makes these candles different from all of the others on the market?
THEY HAVE JEWELLERY INSIDE THEM!!

With a number of different scents to choose from, there's something for everyone. From sweet desserts, to juicy fruits and earthy freshness. Such decisions!

My final choice of fragrance was based on the fact that I had never seen another candle that was scented with WHITE CHOCOLATE!!!
I mean come on, how could I resist??




The Royal Essence candles are Australian made (big plus!) and hand poured with 100% soy wax with a natural cotton wick.
Now the jewellery (rings, necklace or earrings) hidden inside these candles can be anything from a $10 piece of costume jewellery made from alloys (lead and nickel free) to sterling silver pretties to a 14K gold ring with a value of up to $2000!
Pretty frickin' impressive!

I was literally like a child looking out the window, waiting for the postman to deliver this package so I could light it up and get to that buried treasure!!

The white chocolate scent is to die for! I wouldn't say it smells like a block of Milky Bar, but it's definitely a chocolate/vanilla swirl that isn't sickly and leaves a beautiful scent around the home.




Now I don't know if i was just a lucky one, but I read that some people had to burn their candles for days before the little silver parcel inside was revealed. Total burn time for this monster is up to 80 hours!!
I'd say mine was burning for around 3-4 hours before the top of the silver foil was showing (It was only around 2 cms from the top) All it took was a pair of tweezers and a little wiggle and out came the gift!




I'm going to be 100% honest. I wasn't expecting much when it came to the gift inside. But when I unraveled that little silver parcel, I was SUPER chuffed with what I found!!




Hidden inside a little clear ziplock bag wrapped in tin foil was this absolutely beautiful silver ring!! 

Enclosed was a little note that read: "CONGRATULATIONS! YOU'VE WON A $100-$500 JEWEL! POST THIS TAG WITH THE RING ON OUR FB FOR THE RRP"

I quickly snapped a pic and inboxed Royal Essence on Facebook to ask for the details in private, as I wanted the reveal to be left for the blog!

I couldn't believe it when I heard back, that this ring is 925 Stirling Silver with Swarovski elements with a RRP of $325!!!

I actually couldn't believe it... This is genuinely a ring that I will definitely wear and I was so shocked  that I received it! 
And even more exciting was the fact that it fits my chubby fingers!! haha




These would make absolutely amazing birthday presents for friends and family. I am really impressed with the quality of everything and will definitely be buying more of these in the future. 
The cinnamon donut and strawberry cheesecake scents sound so good.

If you would like to try these out for yourself, Royal Essence have a weekly giveaway on their website! They give out 1 ring candle a week and also have some other neat prizes like:

* 4 x jewellery candles valued at $44.99 each (with free shipping)
* 12 x rings valued at $25 each. 
* 50 x 15% off gift vouchers. 

All you have to do to join is head to www.royalessence.com.au/giveaway 
It's as easy as that!!

Be sure to check out the website www.royalessence.com.au and their Facebook page for sales and other peoples cool ring reveals!! http://www.facebook.com/royalessence.com.au

* This product was kindly gifted for my consideration. I am under no obligation to share this if it was not something I was genuinely interested in. Anything that makes it onto Eclectic Clash is 100% awesome in my opinion!
