Bucket List Travel Box - Love & Lotus Naturals



*Press Sample

For the past few years I've been telling you about my FAVORITE indie bath and body brand, Love & Lotus Naturals.  I discovered this amazing brand a number of years ago when I happened to meet its creator, Melissa, through my blog.  Since then I've never stopped using her products! If you have taken any of my advice and tried her amazing body butter, facial care line or decadent sugar scrubs then you know what I'm talking about.

Each year Melissa does a specially inspired, limited edition box.  First was the free-sprited Boho Box (read my review here) and then came the enchanting Mermaid inspired box (read my review here).

This year we're off on a trip around the world with the Bucket List Travel Box! So pack your bags and come along with me!

One of the things I get most excited about with regards to these special Love & Lotus boxes is the amount of attention to detail that goes into them. As you can see above when you open the shipping package it resembles an old travel suitcase, adorned with stickers of far away places. Open it your greeted with inspiration and a passport to far away lands....







 This box includes:
  • 4 oz Whipped Body Butter in "Hanauma Bay Hawaii" a meaty coconut, papaya, dragon fruit & tropical pineapple. 
The scent is fresh and light. Perfect for summer or a trip to the islands. This whipped body butter is MY FAVORITE LOTION EVER (and I've tried a LOT of lotions). Its packed full of skin loving oils and butters to leave you fully hydrated and moisturized yet light and fluffy enough to let your skin breathe all year round. It absorbs quickly and isn't greasy. Melissa offers her signature body butter in lots of scents too!
  • 4 oz Whipped Sugar Scrub "Amsterdam Red Light District" a fun, flirty scent of mandarins, raspberries, cranberries and ripe plums. 
I've never been to Amsterdam but I love this sugar scrub.  You get tons of fluffy bubbles, shea butter, coconut oil, moisturizing oils and sugar to gently exfoliate and leaves skin feeling soft and clean. Try using this scrub all over as the last thing before getting out of the shower and/or use on your legs prior to shaving for smoother legs. Melissa makes the best shave butter too, just sayin...
    • 2 oz Whipped Body Butter "Bangkokj Thailand" clean, fresh outdoorsy and very upscale spa scent.  This was a suprise scent to my liking! I used this last night and I loved how the scent developed once putting it on.  Also, I love these 2oz. containers, especially for travel. 

    • 2 oz Whipped Sugar Scrub "Glamping in Yellowstone Park Wyoming" tall grass, fresh prairie and wildflower. This is definitely the most earthy scent scent in the box, but its fresh and crisp.
    Remember when I said I love the attention to detail in this box, I mean look at the labels of these products.  I'm a bit obsessed with the Yellowstone Glamping RV. 

    • Lip Balm "Borobudur Indonesia" Grounding lavender and herb tea. I've always loved Melissa's lipbalms. This is a lovely one for sleepy time or a little R&R. 
    • 2 oz Mineral Sea Salt Soak "Havana Cuba" smoked tobacco leaves, oak and lavender buds. I love sea salt soaks! They are so good for your mind and your body.  Melissa chooses all the best sea salts in her blends as well. PS, doesn't this remind you of a cigar?!
    • 2 oz Body Spray "Paris France" vanillas and soft delicate floral notes. I love this scent and am glad that Melissa didn't go too floral with it.  It reminds me a bit of VS 'love spell' but so much better.
    • 4.5 oz Bath Bomb "Daintree Rainforest Australia" fresh bamboo, rain, damp leaves and tropical fruits. I'm so glad that Melissa is making bath bombs again! I've got to treat myself to this one this weekend!
    • Wax Melt "Montego Bay Jamaica" Jamaican Rum and almond poppyseed muffins. Now I have been to Jamaica, though it was Negril and not Montego Bay, but I would say that this scent captures Jamaica in a wonderful way.  I would love more or these scented Wax Melts PLEASE!!!
    I buy a lot of Love & Lotus Wax Melts, they fill your home with amazing scents without the danger of a burning candle. If you don't have a wax warmer I suggest your local Kohls. I've bought several there that are very nice and under $20!
    • Custom Nail Polish "Morocco" by Joy Lacquer. For this box Melissa wanted a blood red/bright orange with gold sparkles and flecks for a brilliant Moroccan Sunset.
    I love Joy Lacquer polish and I'm so glad to see another custom polish in this box.  Perfect for summer, I'm planning a mani with it this weekend. Be sure to follow me on Instagram to see it! 
    Aside from the superb bath and body products in this box and the thoughtful packaging is the inspiration inside. The box includes this beautiful charm which reminds us all to Enjoy the Journey. I personally need this reminder daily.



    Perhaps you were wondering what is in the passport inside the box? Here is a peek. Each page includes a product/sent description and  some information on the place it is inspired by.

    2. I love everything about this box: the theme, the hearts in the scrub, the shade of nail polish, the scent of the body butter. As a beauty blogger, I don't need anything at all but I am sorely tempted by this fab box!
