Essentials Box Tribe was launched last week and this is a review of their very first box!

When I was first approached to do this review I was ecstatic because I have been following the creators of Pure Essentials for the last few years at local Edmonton and area farmer’s markets and vendor functions. I was instantly drawn to this line as these ladies, Jayleen and Rachel, handcraft their products with positive intention and use only natural ingredients. Some of you might remember that I am really into natural products and am careful to watch what goes into my body, so this subscription seems like it was made for me. They emailed me an intake form asking specific questions about my skin, family and lifestyle… this is so they can curate the perfect box for me! Without further ado, let’s get to the box.

The box is quite small, packed with straw to keep the products safe.

This product card lists ingredients and uses for each product in the box.

Forest Fun, 60 ml ($15)
Forest Fun will not only nourish and moisturize the skin but it will keep those pesky summertime companions at bay for hours. Lemon Eucalyptus is the only natural oils show in studies around the world to be more effective than DEET. We use Lemon Eucalyptus along with 10 other amazing essential oils to your summer free of unwanted critters when you are in the great outdoors. And to top it off, this DEET free natural lotion smells great. Blended into a lotion base these essential oils become much more effective and you will not have to reapply nearly as often.

This couldn’t have come at a better time. I just told my boyfriend that I was in search of a bug spray that didn’t make me cough and feel like death due to the toxic fumes. I used Forest Fun this past weekend at the lake and I can testify that IT WORKS! I will definitely be ordering this again soon!

Beach Balm, 40g ($13)
Beach Balm is not only protective against harmful sun rays but also nourishing and healing for the skin. The non-nano zinc oxide is an amazing ingredient deemed to protect against both UVA and UVB rays. We have added it to an amazing blend of oils including coconut oil and cocoa butter, that not only smell great but are also gentle and healing for the skin. The base allows for easy application and a little bit will go a long way. The green tea extract powder adds powerful antioxidants and nutrients to the skin to help it allow it to heal and look its best. We’ve added lemongrass essential oil to act as a mild bug repellent and myrrh essential oil to combat sun damage to make our balm be one of the best on the market. Heal and protect all at the same time with the Beach Balm.
Okay, so I tested this stuff on my pale-ghost-like skin this weekend. I was a little hesitant/skeptical that this would work for me as I am quite fair. Guess what? It worked, and it worked well! My Sister was so impressed that she’s put in an order to use it on my infant niece. Smells great, works well.

Day Face Cream, 25g ($16.25)
Made of 95% organic raw materials, we took months to perfect this recipe and keep it at a reasonable price. The organic pumpkin seed oil and organic sunflower seed oil are rich in vitamins and antioxidants which combat free-radical damage caused by sun and pollution. Our home-made rose water is alcohol free and will help to tone and hydrate the skin. Keep this little jar close wherever your travels take you. We are sure you will love it as much as we do.
I love this cream. It has a subtle scent and left my face feeling moisturized and soft. I used it under my makeup and it was great. I highly recommend this product. 

Pukka Tea - A Sachet of Love
This was a nice bonus item to find in the box. I drank this tea before bed due to it’s relaxing ingredients.

The Essentials Box Tribe Launch Box consisted of three handcrafted, natural products valued at $44.25. I will (and already have) use everything in my box! The products work well, are natural and smell great. Essentials Box Tribe officially launched June 21st and only 25 lucky subscribers will get in on the launch box, shipping next week! As of today, there are only 5 spots left, and you have until the end of the week to sign up to secure your box. Will you be one of the first subscribers to join the Essentials Tribe?
