I received a sample box from Cloud 9 Sample Box.com, which is a company that does subscription sample boxes filled with gourmet hand selected chocolates, beauty products and unique treats every month that are delivered to your mail box. I received their May box and the reason it has taken me so long to review it is that I was having some back problems and I could not be on the computer for very long, so I am just now able to get to this wonderful box full of fun stuff!
To subscribe to Cloud 9 Sample Box, it is $15.00 per month and this is a recurring subscription. Shipping is $5.95 with the monthly box. A 3 month subscription is $58.98 and you save $3 off the monthly price. Shipping is included with this 3 month plan. A 6 month subscription is $117.42 and $8 off the monthly price. A yearly plan is $233.76 and you save $17.00 off the monthly price! Shipping is included in these subscription prices. Cloud 9 makes a great gift for so many different people too. The company takes pride in the fact that the products are made with natural ingredients. There are so many different types of products available in these boxes, from gourmet goodies to fun beauty products. Boxes are shipped around the 15th of the month.
My box was the Gluten Free Anniversary Box. In honor of Celiac Disease Awareness Month, Cloud 9 went Gluten Free. The Gluten Free box contained:
- Lovely Candy Co. Caramels
- Lovely Candy Co. Super Fruit Chews
- Nutiva Black Chia Seeds
- Craft of Tea Loving Citron
- Free for All Kitchen Roasted Garlic Rosemary Gluten Free Crackers
- Flourish Natural Body Care Packets: Honey Blossom gentle shampoo
- Flourish Natural Body Care Lavender Mint silky conditioner
- Nutiva Superfood Recipe Book
- Craft of Tea Coupon
I tried out the caramels and found them to positively yummy. They were soft, not too hard and tasted like caramels should. The fruit chews were also yummy. And soft. Similar to Starburst. The shampoo and conditioner were very nice, I love the scents. Honey blossom is so nice, it reminded me of summer. I normally do not like lavender or mint but the scent of the conditioner was not too strong so I found it bearable. I have never tried chia seeds before but they are becoming quite popular these days, you can put them on salads, Greek yogurt or on other foods. The pack was huge, it has a ton of them to use. My husband and I have tea every night after dinner to aid in our digestion (he is Greek and was brought up to do this). The lemon tea came unbagged so I had to use something to put it in. I prefer bagged tea but this tea was very good. It was green tea with a lemon flavor. Green tea is the best of course.
All in all I was very happy with the sample box. Normally I stick to all beauty boxes and I do subscribe to the Pop Sugar monthly box too, which is fun. Would I get this box? Yes, I think I would. It has things in it that I normally would not have tried on my own but find myself liking a lot. Other boxes have really fun things like chocolates and brownies, so I definitely would love those things! If you like gourmet beauty, food and natural items then the Cloud 9 Sample Box is a must for you! The Cloud 9 Sample Box is available from www.cloud9samplebox.com.
