Loti Wellness Box Review August 2021
Loti Wellness Box is a Canadian subscription box that offers practical skills and products to reduce stress and anxiety and improve your overall wellbeing. You will find in your box 5 to 7 quality wellness and lifestyle products to remind you to take the time for self-care in all aspects of your life. With the products, there is a workbook, created by Loti, filled with therapeutic activities, and guided materials related to the month’s theme.
This lovely designed box is my third one with the new look. Do you like it? I gave my impressions on the new colours and shapes with the June box review, and I must say I will like it a lot.
Loti Wellness Box is a box that puts forward the importance to pause, self-reflect and reset, and the design reflects exactly that message. We can find this “mantra” in many places but the most evident is inside the cover of the box.
Now, a little bit of information on the subscription options. Depending on your preference, you can receive a box every month or bi-monthly. The cost per box is $49.95 + $5.99 for shipping for Canadian and $8.99 to the contiguous US (the prices shown are in Canadian dollars). Most boxes are worth over $100. If you get hooked like I am, I recommend the prepaid options (3, 6 or 12-month).
Every Loti Wellness Box comes with a brochure detailing the products. There is a lot of information like the website of the company, the price and sometimes, promotions for Loti’s subscribers. On top, there is also the month’s theme, which is “Savour” for August. I will talk more about the theme with the workbook. Now, let’s have a closer look at what I received.
*Loti Wellness Box kindly sent me this box for review.
Facial Cleanser – LaSpa
Excellent choice of cleanser. Perfect for sensitive skin, so good for everyone, fragrance free, and it even has Aloe Vera for a bonus moisturizing effect. Since I do not wear makeup often, I do not need a strong cleanser that also removes makeup, so this type of foaming cleanser is perfect for me. I tried it a few times already and liked it a lot. Also, LaSpa is a Canadian company, and all its cosmetic line is vegan and hypoallergenic.
Hair Mask – Grace & Stella
This hair mask smells so nice! There was a translucent packaging that covered it at first, so there was no smell, but once the packaging broke off, woah! There is a protective seal on the bottle, and the perfume is still very present. So, it is definitely not fragrance free, but if you like a smell close to baby powder (I do), it should be fine.
This is not my first product from Grace & Stella as I tried their eye mask before (which I love and was happy to have last Monday after a bad night). A hair mask at the end of Summer is a good idea especially if you have been swimming and got some damage from chlorine or from sun exposure. I do not think I need a hair treatment currently, but it cannot hurt to do one maybe once a month instead of the recommended once a week.
Intensive Repair Cream – Jubel Naturals
That is exactly the kind of cream I can receive all year long and will always be happy to have. It smells divine. The pink grapefruit is noticeable, but not too strong. I have put some on my hands, and as I type, I cannot smell it (I tend to bring my hands close to my nose though for the aromatherapy effect). Out of the three “hero ingredients”, this cream is made of Shea butter for its hydrating effect, sweet almond which is high in antioxidants, and one seen less often: oat protein. It is said to restore moisture and soothe inflammation. Another amazing product made in Canada. I love it!
Easy Squeezy Electrolytes – Buoy
This type of product really speaks to me. Buoy’s little squeezable bottle makes having a healthy dose of electrolytes added to your beverage easy. Since this product has no flavour, it can be mixed with anything, from a gin tonic to a green smoothie or a simple glass of water. It is like creating your own Gatorade with any drink and without the unhealthy dose of sugar. Buoy is a company from the USA, but from what I have seen so far, Loti Wellness only takes the best when they choose something on the other side of the border. I will add some to my first bottle of water of the day. It will help me regain my electrolytes after a sweaty workout.
Milks Mineral Bath Soak – Bathorium
This is a milk bath fit for a queen. Coconut and bourbon vanilla mixed in hot water for a luscious soak. I gave it a try before I finished this review and loved the experience. When you open the bag, it smells mostly of coconut flakes. My bath was hydrating and relaxing. There is also dead sea mineral salt in the mix and that helped reduce some of the muscle soreness I had. The size of the bag is very generous with 250 g of powder and only 2 tablespoons per bath are needed.
Loti Activity – Savour Mini-Workbook
This themed workbook comes right on point with the end of Summer approaching. It is a nice reminder to savour everyday (not only in Summer) and everything we enjoy. I have learned interesting facts (like why, as an adult, time seems to go so fast), and learned different ways to savour life, and slow it down through mindfulness.
It mostly talked about how to savour the past, the present, and even the future. There were explanations for each, and questions and a table for another to help with the exercise. Another interesting workbook that makes you analyse your ways of thinking and living. As I read, I asked myself how often I really took the time to enjoy what I am doing, how much I use my different senses while experiencing or remembering a moment in my life. Lots of personal work to do once again this month.
Loti Wellness Box August 2021 Review – Final Thoughts
Marvelous box! To stay with the theme, I will savour everything I received in this month’s box. From the foamy texture of the facial cleansers, to the delicious smell of Grace & Stella Hair Mask, to the feeling of my skin after a good milk bath and some repair cream from Jubel. I will also appreciate how easy it is to add electrolytes to my drinks everyday. I had never tried any of these products before, and they were great surprises. Personally, Loti Wellness Box truly makes a difference in my life, and helps me to physically and mentally keep a balanced life. I can only recommend this amazing box again and again.
