Travelbox: June 2014 Review

2014 is a big travel year for me, as I have lots of exciting trips planned! A few months ago I discovered Travelbox and have been loving all of the on-the-go items I’ve been sent in each box (see my previous reviews here). June’s box was Nature-themed, so the products were all nature-inspired, a bit different than previous boxes. Check out what was included below!

Yes to Blueberries
I’ve been seeing the Yes to brand around a lot lately and have been anxious to try all of their different scents (so far I’ve only tried the cucumber one). I was very happy to find the Yes to Blueberries Cleansing Facial Towelettes ($6) included. I’ve been obsessed with makeup removing/face cleansing wipes lately over creams/serums and think these will be perfect to throw in my bag for upcoming trips!

Sahale Snacks Almonds
Sea salt has quickly become my new favorite topping on snacks, and so I was happy to find two packs of Almonds with Cranberries and Sea Salt ($2.20) in my box. A low-cal and reasonably priced (and tasty) snack, this is something I can see myself purchasing regularly.

Sheaterra Rose Hips Black Soap Facial Cleanser
I think the Sheaterra Rose Hips Black Soap Facial Cleanser ($5)  was a bonus item in June’s box, as there was no info included on it on the info card. I haven’t used the cleanser yet, but I’m planning to bring it along on my next trip. It’s supposed to be really great for your skin – helping to get rid of dead skin, even out your skin tone, fight acne, and look younger.

Simply Snackin’ Jerky
I’m always looking for new snacks that are easily transported whether on-the-go in my daily life, or on trips. Travelbox included 2 varieties of chicken-flavored Simply Snackin’ Jerky ($3), which were new to me! I’m pretty sure Slim Jims are the only kind of jerky I’ve had before this. I liked the new concept and they weren’t bad calorie-wise at all!

Sprayology TravelEase
The most expensive item in June’s box was Sprayology’s TravelEase ($29), a brand I’ve never heard of but was interested to check out. I’m glad I looked more into it, because my initial thoughts were that this was some kind of moisturizing face spray – I was way off! TravelEase is supposed to help with jet lag (tiredness, dehydration, disorientation, sleeplessness) and is something you spray under your tongue when taking off, landing, and every 2 hours in flight. Made up of ingredients such as passion flower, Indian berry, and St. Mary’s thistle, I can’t wait to give this spray a try on my trip across the country next month!

I paid $25.95 for my Travelbox (including shipping) retailed out to about $45. While I did enjoy the items included in June’s box, it wasn’t my favorite. Snack items are great, but it’d be nice to see more products to help optimize the on-the-go lifestyle!

What would you like to see in upcoming Travelbox boxes?

  • I could definitely use that Sprayology. I hate airplanes and feel jet lag after even short flights. I also get nausea which isn't fun. Let me know how it works!
