Love & Lotus - Limited Boho Box Review



*Press Sample*

I make no secret that I have a serious crush on Love & Lotus Naturals. I've been using their products since the moment I discovered them. Well actually I think it was fate that brought us together since it was a contest that I won that first gave me the wonders that this brand has to offer. But, I digress.

When Melissa the creator of Love & Lotus told me about her inspiration for her first themed box I was thrilled. And when she asked if I would review the box for her I was of course over the moon.

The box itself is artfully presented from cover to cover. From the moment you open the box inspiration is all around you.



Being the wonderful person Melissa is, she included a heartfelt letter about her inspiration behind the box. The letter was really a wonderful reflection of what is in this box (her heart & soul really) and I feel privileged to have received it.
"Being a Bohemian is more a way of life, a state of mind, an atmosphere. It is about living beyond convention. It is about joyfully celebrating creativity, originality and the splendor of a lifestyle and spirit shared by free thinking."

The BoHo box contains two 4 oz Whipped Body Butters, one 4 oz Luxe Ultrafine Whipped Sea Salt Scrub, premium Sea Salt Soak with six salts from all over the world, a Lip Butter & Sugar set, 2 oz Summer Soufflé and 2 oz Whipped Sugar Butter Soap Scrub. A secret surprise was also included! Lets jump right in and take a look!


PARAMITSHA (a Gypsy Fairytail) Whipped Body Butter - Strong buttery vanilla paired with juicy peach, fresh strawberry and a dash of pink sugar. This is probably my favorite item in the box because I adore Love & Lotus's whipped body butter and because I really love anything with a strong base of vanilla. The whipped body butter from Love & Lotus is thick and rich but its not even the slightest bit greasy. Its incredibly hydrating and great for even sensitive skin. I seriously encourage you to try it!

How much do you love the inspiring little messages on these products?!
RINKENI (pretty) a flirtatious blend with the perfect combination of clean white florals, orchid, freesia, jasmine and lily of the valley with middle notes of sparkling citrus softened with notes of caramel, vanilla and amber. (Whipped Body Butter) A stunning scent! Not overly floral or citrus - a beautiful balance.


OFISA (a fortune telling establishment) this Luxe Ultrafine Whipped Sea Salt Scrub has wild top notes of cassis, blackberry, red raspberry and grape lead to a violet sage middle and a soft earthy musk base. This scrub is warm and earthy and although the sugar scrub from Love & Lotus is my favorite I'm enjoying this salt alternative for its detoxifying properties!

I promise I will let my Wild Out!
WUZHO (clean, pure) this Lip Butter & Sugar Scrub set has a purely all natural herbal flavor with a splash of fresh tangerine. If you have read my prior Love & Lotus reviews you would know that the lip balm and scrub are my key to fighting dry, flakey lips. I like to use the scrub at night after I wash my face. Apply to damp lips and rub gently with your finger and gently rub your lips together. Remove with a warm, wet washcloth then apply lip balm.


DIDIKAI (gypsy friend) Love & Lotus's Summer Soufflé body lotion in a surprise fragrance. Top notes of pineapple, mandarin orange, grapefruit and passion-fruit lead to a fruity middle of raspberry, strawberry, papaya and apricot with a floral kiss of osmanthus, all atop a sweet, subtle drydown of musk, woods, vanilla and coconut milk. This scent is still very light while being tropical, fruity and refreshing.


DRABARNI (fortune teller) Whipped Sugar Butter Soap Scrub in a surprise fragrance. This is a perfect blend of an old favorite, oatmeal, milk and honey. This scent is mellow and soothing with just a hint of sweetness.  I mentioned above that I adore Love & Lotus whipped sugar butter soap scrub so I was excited to get this in this wonderful scent. The sugar scrub lathers nicely and exfoliates while being really moisturizing.

I love this product so much its a staple in my shower - I just ordered two more containers.


KINTALA (a state of balance) This Premium Salt Soak aromatherapy at its best here. In the bath this smells amazing!! Russian sage blends with Canadian fir, cedarleaf, oak moss, alpine hay with a tobacco vanilla bottom. If there was an outdoor mountain spa, this is what I imagine it would smell like.


We can't forget to talk about the special additional suprise in the box! A beautiful bracelet with a note saying "A gift given by a Bohemian is almost always handmade. This bracelet is made with love and given with friendship".

There you have it, the first of what I hope will be many limited edition boxes from Love & Lotus. I was really just blown away by the attention to details in this box, not to mention that it included lots of my favorite products in irresistible scents. I hope you ordered one of these boxes already, but if not there may be one or two left if you visit Love & Lotus website.

Stay up to date with promos, future boxes and new products via Love & Lotus Facebook page. Even if you missed out on this box you can still go to the online store and order many of these products in dozens of other core brand scents (some of my favorites include Sleeping in a Hut, Acai & Mangosteen and Tahitian Vanilla to name a few). Also pick up some of her Sea Goddess foaming face wash. Its amazing, just get it and thank me later.

Tell me what you think of this box? Have you tried any products from Love & Lotus? I'd love to hear from you!
