They Kindly sent us this box for review.
I am beyond excited about today’s review. I’ve had my eye on TheraBox for quite some time and this will be my very first time reviewing it personally. We first started reviewing it on the blog in April 2019 and I have secretly been coveting it since then.
The last few boxes have looked absolutely wonderful so I figured it was time to start reviewing it myself.

Here’s a closer look at the December TheraBox…
SONAGE | SONAGE GOMMAGE EXFOLIATING GEL | $36
Exfoliate the past and reveal your rejuvenated skin! The Sonäge Gommage Exfoliating Gel is a non-abrasive microbead-free exfoliating peel gel that brightens the complexion, smooths the skin and eliminates surface dead skin cells. It’s a botanical face scrub made with locust bean husk, lime oil and camphor – an ingredient that checks bacterial growth so even the most sensitive skin is left looking fresh and glowing! Use this as an exfoliant once or twice a week or even as a hydrating mask for as often as your skin need!
I’m always a little hestitant to try new masks or exfoliating products on my face as my skin can be quite sensitive. But I did a little research on this one and it gets great reviews. You can use it one of two ways – as an exfoliant or a mask. To use as an exfoliant, after cleansing skin, apply a thick layer of the gel to the face and neck. Let it act for 1-2 minutes. When it is damp-dry, remove with your fingertips using the soft and light effleurage technique.
To use as a mask, after cleansing, apply a thick layer and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse with water.
THE HAPPY SHOPPE CO. | “NAMASTE IN BED” FAUX SILK BATHROBE | $39
Slip into comfort and wake up feeling fresh and rejuvenated! Our Therabox exclusive, “Namaste in Bed” faux silk robe with hood is made of high quality faux silk fabric that is breathable, soft and free flowing. It hugs to your skin and takes comfort to the next level, so you’ll want to lounge around in it, even when sleeping! Chic, lightweight, and timeless, this is the perfect robe to throw on after a busy tiring day + it features an embroidered “Namaste in Bed” embellishment — a gentle reminder that it’s okay to relax and just “Namaste in Bed” all day!
What a fun product for a wellness subscription box! Once baby gets here I have a feeling I will be wearing robes quite often. Perfect for lounging, relaxing, breast feeding, etc….. I like that this one is grey (one of my favorite colors). The product description mentions a hood, which mine does not have, but maybe this was an option for some subscribers? Regardless I love it!
FIG+YARROW | DAY NUTRIENTS BOOSTER SERUM | $34
Little self-care acts including skin-care routines are like love notes to your body. It helps you slow down and figure some time out to pamper yourself – even if it’s just for a few minutes a day. Fig+Yarrow’s Day Nutrients Booster Serum is the perfect skin-care breather. It is a lightweight vitamin-rich cream serum formulated with a blend of nourishing botanicals and powerful antioxidants that deeply rejuvenates and promotes skin elasticity. This c-rich formula also helps brighten complexion and neutralize free radicals leaving skin visibly more refined and radiant. Ingredients include Acai Berry, Sea Buckthorn, Coffee Beans, Flax Seed, Vitamin B5, Hyaluronic Acid, Calendula and Aloe – all of which, helps with alleviating dry skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and regeneration of the skin.
I have been on the hunt for a new serum. The one I currently use (and love) is quite expensive so I would love to find an alternative. This one has a wonderful list of ingredients and I am quite familiar with the Fig + Yarrow brand. I will definitely be testing this one out.
WAY OF WILL | 06 WARM UP MOISTURIZING BODY OIL | $32
As the new decade starts, it time to renew your vows of self-caring and what better way than to pamper your skin with Way of Will’s Warm Up Moisturizing Body Oil. Made with a chock-full of ingredients that firms, hydrates and relaxes your body and mind, Warm Up contains high vitamin E, tannins (antioxidants), linoleic acid, omega-3 and omega-6. It also embraces special essential oil combinations including Nutmeg & Galbanum which moisturizes the body, nourishes the mind and is super effective on improving the skin vitality to perfectly kick-start or wrap up your busy day!
Have I told you how much I love body oil? I’m pretty sure I mention it every time I receive oil in a subscription box. I rarely use lotion anymore. I see such great results with oil that it’s the first product I reach for when it comes to my skin, face, nails and/or hair.
HABIT NEST | THE MORNING SIDEKICK JOURNAL | $29.90
For this month’s Happiness Boosting Activity, we’re presenting you with Habit Nest’s “The Morning Sidekick Journal.” The Morning Sidekick Journal is a science-based morning planner that gets you laser-focused on your morning productivity and happiness. It is a tailored-journal for building the habit of a consistent daily morning routine and getting the most out of your mornings.
I have come to appreciate the importance of a good morning routine. It’s an important part of your day…..a very important part. Having a good morning routine prepares you for the day ahead and makes sure you are ready for whatever the day throws at you. I LOVE the idea of this journal as it’s an easy way to hold yourself accountable.
GRACE & STELLA | ANTI WRINKLE + ENERGIZING UNDER EYE MASKS | $21.95
Greet the new year with bright and youthful eyes because Grace & Stella’s Anti-Wrinkle + Energizing Under Eye Masks feels like an energy drink – but for your eyes. Made with collagen, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and natural minerals, these eye masks help eliminate dark circles, puffy eye bags, fine lines and general fatigue around the eyes.
I went through a phase where I used eye masks on a regular basis. I love the way they feel (very relaxing) and I love how refreshed and moisturized they leave my under eye area. This box of masks will be great to have on hand, especially once baby gets here and I start to experience all those sleepless nights.
THE HAPPY SHOPPE CO. | 100% SOY WAX MIDNIGHT PINE LUXURY CANDLE | $15
Cold rustic musk mingles with rain-dripping pine and evokes a rugged yet cold earthy breeze – this is how the Luxo Midnight Pine Black Candles will make you feel once you light it up! Made with sustainable soy that comes in a reusable and elegant tins, the midnight pine scented candle is crafted from a delicate mix of Tangerine and Rose with undertones of musk and pine. The aroma is blended to both calm and warm the ambiance of any room so it’s perfect for smaller spaces or as an add on to your overnight bag.
This gorgeous candle will be a nice little addition to any room. I usually display smaller candles in my office and large candles in my living room but I am loving the idea of adding this one to my overnight bag. What a genius idea!
THE HAPPY SHOPPE CO. | MINI 2020 DESKTOP CALENDAR | $5
Keep your days organized with our custom and colorfully-designed Mini 2020 Desktop calendar. Jot down your weekly schedule plus your notes, then tear it off and start anew the next week – the pages are undated do you can keep track of important dates, contacts, and other events at a glance.

TheraBox Review December 2019 – Final Thoughts
As I mentioned above, I’ve had my eye on TheraBox for quite some time. I just had a feeling about this subscription…..I knew I would love it and my feelings were spot on. I can already tell that TheraBox is going to become a new fave.
The December box was curated perfectly for the end of the year. Including a 2020 calendar, a journal to get my days started on the right foot, a comfy robe and some wonderful skincare products perfect for pampering. I think this subscription is done so well. All the little details are covered – packaging, informative product card, reasonable price point, monthly theme, and quality products. This is one to keep on eye on in 2020. I have a feeling we will see great things from TheraBox going forward.
