This box was received complimentary for review.
This post contains referral links.
What is it? Little Life Box 
How Much? $19.99 CDN per month plus $3.95 shipping. Tax extra. Save on 3, 6, or 12 month subscriptions. 
What’s in it? Over a dozen organic, natural health conscious samples. Vegan box available as well.

Little Life Box is a Canadian subscription service that sends a box full of healthy and sustainable products for you to sample and discover. Products may include snacks, cosmetics, supplements, vitamins, and more. Items included in the box varies each month, and Little Life Box guarantees that you will never receive the exact same product sample twice. Little Life Box offers a regular box or a vegan box.

This is the December box so it was festive and fun, packaged with bright red tissue, a lovely silver bow, and a rustic wooden moose ornament. 

 First look - packed full!

Little Life Box doesn't include a product card, since there are so many variations of the monthly box. Instead, subscribers can check out a list of products on-line.  I've mentioned before that this has been a frustrating experience because the products aren't organised by month, or even alphabetically. Little Life Box must have been listening because they added a "search" box to the page! It's made things much easier.

Camino Chili & Spice Hot Chocolate (275g full size, $8.49) - Ontario
A blend of pure cocoa with invigorating chili, ginger and cinnamon to arouse your senses. Spice up your day. (No added milk. Prepare with your choice of milk or milk substitute.)
I am going to use this to make chili spice brownies! Chocolate and chili is a delicious combo!

Buddy Fruits Pure Fruit Bites (2 x 28g packs, $3.32)
All natural, no preservatives, nothing artificial. I liked the orange flavour but the apple ones were strange.

Riega Foods Turkey Style Gravy Mix (2 x 20g, $3.13)
This is a gluten-free and vegan gravy mix. Perfect for the upcoming holidays!

Gogo Quinoa Altura Pink Salt (250g, $2.83) - Quebec
The Altura non-treated pink salt is harvested at 3000 meters above sea level in the heart of the Andes Mountains. The unique and elegant pink color comes from the minerals and trace elements found in the pure ancient sea salt deposits.

Camino Coconut Dark Chocolate Bar (100g full size, $4.29) - Ontario
The Caribbean beach. Taste the delicious flakes of coconut swimming in our rich dark chocolate. The taste of summer in every bite.
Chocolate is always good and Camino chocolate is fair trade and certified organic.

Four O'Clock Teas in Carrot Cake & Black Forest Cupcake (4 tea bags,  $0.88) - Quebec
These are both black teas from the limited edition Winter Collection. I can't wait to try them! And this is a Canadian company! A full size box is $3.49 for 16 tea bags at London Drugs.

Gogo Quinoa Pancake Mix (150g, $1.95) - Quebec
A unique mix with a similar taste and texture compared to traditional pancakes. This same mix can be used to make waffles.
This is a gluten free, vegan pancake mix made from quinoa flour. Excellent!

Bio-Vert HE Laundry Detergent (2 load sample, $0.67) - Quebec
Bio-Vert eco-friendly HE (high efficiency) laundry detergent is formulated to be tough on stains in warm and cold water.  
This is another Canadian company and it can be purchased online from!

Wood's Body Goods Coconut Lip Balm ($4.50)  - Saskatchewan
Lip balm is great for keeping your lips silky smooth! Our unscented ‘White Chocolate’ smells of heavenly, rich chocolate thanks to high amounts of unrefined, organic cocoa butter. Paraben and gluten-free. Yummy goodness. 
Idoine Anti Wrinkle Facial Cream (7g sample, $12) - Quebec
With its exceptional regenerating effects, this cream smoothes away wrinkles while acting against skin devitalisation. It penetrates and quickly tones your skin without the oily sensation.

Natera Hemp Seeds in Blackberry & Pomegranate (25g single serving x 2, $3.34) - BC

For a naturally refreshingly nutrition boost, try Blackberry-Pomegranate Natera Hemp Protein Powder. It’s a raw, whole food ultra-rich in protein, fiber, essential fatty and amino acids and omegas, vitamins, chlorophyll and calcium - blended with juicy anti-oxidant rich blackberries and pomegranate seeds. 

Natera Hemp Seeds in Vanilla (25g single serving, $1.67) - BC 
Our velvety Vanilla Hemp Protein Powder hits the spot for even the most discerning vanilla lover. It’s a raw, whole food ultra-rich in protein, fiber, essential fatty and amino acids and omegas, vitamins, chlorophyll and calcium - blended with pure natural vanilla. 

I've received these packets for the last three months and I think now I've received every flavour available, so that means I won't get getting any more. Time for new stuff!

Now Foods Better Stevia - 2 sample packets
I use liquid stevia in my daily tea. These packets will be handy for on-the-go.

The December Little Life Box  contained  13 products (20 samples) with an approximate retail value over $47. The best part of this box, and something I've never noticed before with Little Life Box, is that ten of the thirteen products are from Canadian companies! There's a great mix of products with everything from snacks to skincare represented. I also like that Little Life Box  includes multiples of some of the smaller samples. It's hard to tell if you like a product with just one packet, and Little Life Box always includes multiples so you have a chance to really test and get a feel for each product. I really enjoyed this box and I look forward to the next one!

If you are interested in ordering a one month trial box to see what Little Life Box has to offer (rather than committing to a month-to-month recurring subscription), you can use promo code jill20 to get 20% off the cost of a trial box. This brings the cost down to $21.55 plus tax, including shipping.  
Click here if you are interested in trying Little Life Box. Order by December 31st and you will get the January box!
