My Non-GMO Box Review & 20% Off

I love food and I love to snack.  I've always been a grazer: I don't eat a lot of any one thing, but I do like to eat a lot of things.  Recently, the use of GMOs in food has come under criticism, and I like to buy non-GMO snacks whenever possible.  My Non-GMO Box now makes it easy for everyone to access these types of foods!

*Disclaimer: This box was purchased by See, Shop, Love!


Currently this box is a one-time purchase, but they do have plans to start a subscription in the future.  The box costs $14.99 and shipping is included.  It appears that they are shipping to the United States and Canada, based off of the order page.  I'm not sure if there is an extra shipping charge for Canadian addresses.


The first collection features six products, all of which are verified by the Non-GMO Project.  The Non-GMO Project is North America's only third-party verification and labeling entity for non-GMO products.  They are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.

Why do GMOs matter?  That's up to you to decide, but GMO stands for "genetically modified organisms," which means a living organism whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated through genetic engineering.  While I do understand some of the impetus behind using GMOs (for example, modifying livestock so that they can produce a higher yield for impoverished communities), I choose to purchase non-GMO foods when I can.  You can learn more about GMOs and the Non-GMO Project at their website, which I've linked in the paragraph above.


But back to the box!  Like I said, this box makes non-GMO verified foods easily accessible for those who may not have a wide variety of them available in their local stores.  Although I can usually find a pretty big selection at Wegmans (the best grocery store ever), I'm always interested in finding new favorites!  Here's what was inside:
  • Beanfields Bean and Rice Chips in Nacho - I love Beanfields chips!  They have a really good crunch and are incredibly savory.  They're made from beans and rice, so they are gluten-free as well.
  • Tasty Brand Organic Wild Berry Fruit Snacks - All of Tasty Brand's snacks are made with certified USDA organic ingredients.  They're chewier than "regular" fruit snacks that most people are probably used to, so I suspected they were made with carrageenan, but the first ingredient is actually organic tapioca syrup!  I liked these a lot, though; they had a lot of flavor.
  • Nature's Path Dark Chocolate Chip Chewy Granola Bar - I'm a big fan of Nature's Path's Love Crunch granola, so I'm sure that this is great as well.  It's also gluten-free and and made with fair-trade certified dark chocolate.
  • Two Leaves and a Bud Tea Company Tea Sampler - Most boxes with natural/organic foods are going to have a sample of tea at some point.  Luckily I'm a big tea drinker.  This pack has one sachet each of their Organic Assam and Organic Better Rest Blend teas.  They're certified USDA organic and kosher.
  • Wild Friends All-Natural Honey Sunflower Butter - This is sweetened with USDA organic honey and is dairy-free.  I love the little chipmunk on the front, it's so cute!  I've never had sunflower butter before, so I'm curious to see how this tastes.
  • Heavenly Organics Honey Pattie Chocolate Mint - This is made with raw organic white Himalayan honey and are gluten- and dairy-free.  Aside from honey, it has only two other ingredients: organic Italian dark chocolate liquor, and peppermint oil.  I thought it was delicious!
Bottom Line: I like what My Non-GMO Box has put together so far and I would definitely consider subscribing when they launch as a full-on subscription.  For now, you can purchase this box at their website as a one-time purchase, so you don't have to worry about canceling or being billed again.  You can also purchase full-sized versions of each item at their shop section.

BeautyKind EcoBeauty Discovery Kit Review and $25 Off!

I was catching up on my Bloglovin' feed last week and I came across a post about the BeautyKind EcoBeauty Discovery Kit.  Unfortunately I didn't save the post, so I can't remember which blog it was from, otherwise I would link to it!  I was intrigued both by BeautyKind and the box, because we all know I love a good box of samples.

*Disclaimer: This box was purchased by See, Shop, Love!


BeautyKind is a wonderful online shop that has a ton of products in stock, from skincare to cosmetics to fragrance and more.  They are not exclusively an eco-beauty site, but they have a special Vegan section and lots of eco-friendly brands available.  Even better, 5% of each of your purchases is donated to the charity of your choice, which you can change at any time.  I chose the ASPCA (American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) as my charity.


I'm sorry to say that the EcoBeauty Discovery Kit is currently out of stock, but BeautyKind let me know that they are in the process of restocking them!  Keep checking here to see when they become available.  It was priced at $50, but mine only cost me $25 because I was referred by the blogger I spoke of earlier (keep reading to find out how you can get $25 off of any order, too).  All of this stuff for only $25!  I was in sample heaven.

The box is, obviously, packed with BeautyKind's favorite eco-friendly products.  Many of them are free from harsh chemicals, dyes, synthetics...all of those things that many people try to stay away from.  Most of the box is made up of skincare, and I would have preferred to receive more color cosmetics.  However, this is still an excellent deal for the price I paid, so I'm still happy with it.

I haven't tried every product yet (and I probably won't get through all of them for a while!), but I'll list what's inside along with their approximate retail values and give some feedback on the few that I have tried at the end of the post.

  • Teadora Nourishing Shampoo in Rainforest at Dusk ($5.00 for 2 fl oz) - For stronger, shinier, moisture-infused hair.  It smells slightly herbal with a little citrus thrown in.
  • Teadora Nourishing Body Cleanser in Rainforest at Dawn ($4.00 for 2 fl oz) - For cleaner, healthier, moisture-infused skin.  This one is much more "earthy" than the Rainforest at Dusk scent, with clear notes of bergamot and woods.
  • Vapour Organic Beauty Elixir Plumping Lip Gloss in Honor ($22.00 for .13 oz, full-sized) - This is made with hydrating botanicals and is 70% organic.  The shade is a pink shimmer.
  • Hush & Dotti Balm Cleanser ($10.96 for ~.6 oz) - I'm guessing on the size of this.  I also had no idea what this was until I looked it up, but it's a facial cleanser.
  • Mio Fit Skin Kit ($33.00 for three 1 fl oz bottles) - I'm considering this "full-sized" because, although the tubes are sample-sized, you can purchase the whole kit as one item.  Anyway, it's made up of the Boob Tube+, Workout Wonder, and The Activist creams.  Boob Tube+ weirds me out, it's for keeping the skin on your boobs firm.  Workout Wonder can be used pre- or post-workout to invigorate/soothe muscles, and The Activist is a body oil.  I'll definitely get good use out of Workout Wonder and The Activist, and I'll give Boob Tube+ to someone who is more worried about their boob skin than I am.
  • Le Bebe Coo Nourishing Lotion ($8.59 for 4.4 fl oz) - This is formulated for a baby's gentle skin, but it's appropriate for anyone to use, really.
  • Le Bebe Coo Head-to-Toe ($8.20 for 4.8 fl oz) - This is made with soy and is formulated to provide a better alkali environment for a baby's tender skin.
  • Molliderm ($14.00 for 3.39 oz) - I definitely had no idea what this was because the labeling is not in English, but I guessed that it was Swedish and I was correct.  I then discovered that there was a tiny sticker on the back that had some information about the product in English.  It's a hand cream made from beeswax, vegetable oil, and sunflower oil.
  • Lea Journo Hydra-Riche Hydrating Conditioner ($5.21 for 2 fl oz) - The only other time I see packaging like this is for those applesauces or other fruit mixes.  This is not edible!  It's a sulfate-free condition that restores body and shine to hair.
  • Susan Ciminelli Cleansing Milk ($15.00 for 2 fl oz) - This has lavender and calendula extracts.  I think I'll enjoy it, I like cream cleansers because I have sensitive skin.
  • Lalicious Sugar Kiss Extraordinary Whipped Sugar Scrub ($9.50 for 2 oz, full-sized) - I'm dying to smell this but I haven't broken its seal yet because I already have some body scrubs I want to use up first.
  • Meow Meow Tweet Deodorant Cream in Tea Tree ($14 for 2.4 oz) - I've seen a few Meow Meow Tweet products in subscription boxes before and have always wanted to try their stuff.  I prefer natural deodorants, so I'm sure this will be a good fit for me.
  • RGB Nail Color Remove Pad ($1.40 for one pad) - This has no artificial dyes or fragrance.
  • Tiziana Terenzi Mediterranean Candle ($25.00 for ~2.4 oz, full-sized) - I'm guessing on the size of this, but I know the price is correct per the BeautyKind website.  This has a wood wick and a beautiful container, but unfortunately it has zero scent throw.  It actually doesn't have much scent, period.  It looks pretty and I enjoy the crackling of the wood wick, though!
  • RGB Nail Care Liquid Buff ($20.00 for .4 fl oz, full-sized) - This "mimics the look of buffed nails," and I'm not really sure what that means.  A matte look, I'm guessing?
  • Pour le Monde Perfume Samples ($18.09 for three ~.125 fl oz vials) - Guessing again on the size of these, but a full-sized bottle (1.7 fl oz) retails for $82.  "Envision" is a lavender/vanilla/spicy citrus blend, "Empower" is fresh and spirited, and "Together" is a woodsy floral.
  • Patyka Samples - This brand is Leaping Bunny certified cruelty-free which is always something I like to see.  This pack included:
    • Absolis Face and Body Serum ($1.40 for .034 fl oz)
    • Absolis Face Cream - Tea Tree ($1.80 for .051 fl oz)
    • Radiant Eye Contour Cream ($7.50 for .051 fl oz)
    • Ultra Rich Radiant Face Cream ($4.80 for .051 fl oz)
    • Repair Night Serum ($10.71 for .051 fl oz)
    • Repair Face Cream ($4.05 for .051 fl oz)
    • Intense Moisturizing Mask ($2.70 for .051 fl oz)
    • Radiant Exfoliating Mask ($2.70 for .051 fl oz)
  • Erno Laszlo Phormula 3-9 Repair Balm ($15.00 for .1 fl oz) - So a full-sized version of this costs $255, for 1.7 fl oz!  We can add this to the list of products I will never buy a full-sized jar of.  It's an intense skin moisturizer.  Very intense, based on the price.
  • Duggan Sisters LifeStinks ($6.00 for ~1 oz) - This is a safe and effective natural deodorant, and it can also be used as a dry shampoo, foot powder, or toothpaste!
  • Christian Siriano Silhouette ($1.36 for for .033 oz) - I received this in my January Birchbox and I really like the scent.  I was surprised to see it in this box because I didn't think of it as a natural product, but I'll still take another sample of it.
  • Gloss Moderne High Gloss Masque ($16.25 for ~1 oz) - This is a hair mask for high gloss shine.
My favorite product so far is the Molliderm cream.  My hands have been so dry and cracked this winter, and it's nice and rich and leaves my hands feeling soft.  I also like the candle, even though it doesn't have much of a scent.  I'm most excited to try the Meow Meow Tweet deodorant cream.

Bottom Line: This box would have been an excellent deal at $50, but it was even more amazing for only $25!  The total retail value adds up to approximately $288.22, since I had to guess on the weights/volumes of some of the products.  I'm excited to dig in and find some new favorites, hopefully I don't fall in love with any of the really expensive ones!

February Bare Bliss Box Review

I bought a voucher from Gilt City for one month of Bare Bliss Box, a subscription that's been on my "to try" list for a while.  They send organic beauty products and promise to only feature brands that create toxin-free cosmetics.

*Disclaimer: This box was purchased by See, Shop, Love!


Bare Bliss Box normally costs $19.99 a month, with shipping included. They also have three- and six-month subscriptions available, for $16.99/month and $12.99/month, respectively.  The Gilt City voucher I purchased was for $12, but there was also a $3 shipping charge, so the box cost me $15.


There were five items total, and two of them were full-sized.  I was impressed by the packaging and the curation of items.

  • Box Naturals Box Feminine Towelettes ($2.66 for two towelettes) - These gently-scented wipes are made with all-natural ingredients and organic essential oils.  They're also 100% biodegradable and free of parabens, dyes, petrochemicals, sulfates, and synthetic fragrance.
  • Adorn Nails Nail Polish ($11 for .5 fl oz, full-sized) - I got the shade "Fairy Dust & Happy Thoughts," which is a light gold/cream pearl shimmer.  They're "Big 5" free and come in a variety of colors.
  • Pure By She She Creamy Body Wash ($2.49 for 2 fl oz) - I received the scent "Sweet Orange."  This is cruelty-free certified by PETA and is plant-based.  It's also vegan.  It has a distinct scent, but it doesn't really smell like sweet orange to me.  I'm glad to have a body wash that's free of harsh chemicals, though.
  • S.W. Basics of Brooklyn Vegan Cocoa Lip Balm ($4 for .15 oz, full-sized) - I've owned a lot of lip balms and other products from S.W. Basics of Brooklyn in the past, but I had never tried the vegan variety.  This smells just like cocoa and provides long-lasting relief from chapped lips.
  • Palmetto Derma Retinol & Peptide Infused Lifting Eye Cream ($8.50 for .125 oz) - A full-sized version of this (1 oz) retails for $68, so even if I loved it, I probably wouldn't buy a full-sized tub.  I'm sure that it's wonderful, I just have too many eye creams to get through already so I posted this up for swap.  It is also cruelty-free certified by PETA, and it is made with botanical oils and organic vitamins and minerals, among other things.
Bottom Line: I liked this box.  The total retail value is $28.65.  My voucher was good for one box and did not automatically renew, so as of now I am unsubscribed.  I would consider subscribing to Bare Bliss Box in the future, but right now I think I have too many subscriptions to manage as it is.

Guest Post: 14 Questions To Help You Launch Your Own Subscription Box!

I post about subscription boxes quite a bit here, but today I have a guest post from Katherine Raz about how you can start your own subscription box service!  I won't lie, I've definitely toyed with the idea myself.  Read on for all of Katherine's tips!

Photo credit: Brown paper packages tied up with strings via photopin (license)
If you've been subscribing to monthly boxes for a while, chances are you might have considered starting one yourself. The marketplace is so saturated now, though, it seems like there's a subscription box for pretty much everything already. While this is great for shoppers, it doesn't feel awesome if you want to start a business in a niche that hasn't already been dominated by one of the major subscription box players.

But there are still great subscription box ideas out there! Your answers to these questions might uncover an idea that'll work for you.

Successful subscription box companies share one thing in common: they make people feel awesome about themselves. You can launch a similar subscription box company to one that already exists if you can master the art of making your subscribers feel like they're getting more value by subscribing to your box. To do that, you need to brainstorm subscription box ideas that add a unique value to people's lives.

Here are 14 questions to help get you thinking about what type of subscription company can do that:
  1. What wears out quickly? What do you grow out of quickly? What gets old or obsolete that you can replace with a subscription?
  2. What’s a regular hassle for you?
  3. What do you wish you never had to leave the house to buy again?
  4. What are you frequently out of?
  5. What would impress people in your social circle if you had it and no one else did? What if you had a new one of these each month?
  6. What can be bundled to create a unique surprise each month?
  7. What are some seasonal needs that could be satisfied by a subscription?
  8. What could a subscription offer access to that is otherwise hard to come by? Are there products that you don’t have access to (think: geographical area, industry connections, etc.) that you would like to have access to on a regular basis? Or vice versa: do you have access to something others would like access to?
  9. What do you have in-depth knowledge of that you could bring to a wider audience?
  10. What is a little luxury that you would like to indulge in on a regular basis, but that you don’t usually allow yourself?
  11. What life experiences do you have, from being a parent to being a patient, that have given you insight into small inconveniences that could be made better with a regular shipment of something?
  12. Is there something you regularly rent or borrow that could be made more convenient if it came in the mail as a subscription you could send back?

February Scentbird Review - Chocolat Mat

I never used to be that interested in perfumes, but I've recently converted to being slightly obsessed, thanks to Scentbird.  I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of my February perfume because I was so curious to see if it would smell as wonderfully as I was hoping it would.

*Disclaimer: This subscription was purchased by See, Shop, Love! Post contains affiliate links.

If you're not familiar with Scentbird, they send authentic designer perfumes to you each month for $14.95 (shipping included).  If you live in New York like I do, it'll cost you a little over $16 due to tax.  They have hundreds of perfumes to choose from, from brands like Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Dior, and more!  Your first month will include a deluxe case and felt drawstring bag, which you can see in my first review.


This month I chose Chocolat Mat by Masaki Matsushima because I love chocolate, and apparently I wanted to smell like it.  I prefer warm scents that err on the sweet side, so I figured this would be right up my alley.  The description Scentbird says that the heart notes are "lush cacao and dark chocolate," with coconut and musk base notes and a top note of rose.

I immediately spritzed it on my wrist and was disappointed by how light the scent was.  I could pick up notes of chocolate, but the entire perfume was very faint.  After five minutes I could hardly smell anything at all, no exaggeration.  This perfume originally debuted in 1994 and I know they lose potency as time goes on, so that may be why it's so weakly scented.  Or it could just be like that regardless.  Either way, I was bummed that this wasn't stronger.  I probably won't even bother to use it because the scent fades so quickly.

Bottom Line: Even though this month's perfume was a bit of a disappointment, I'm still excited to get more shipments from Scentbird!  Next month I've selected Lady Million by Paco Rabanne, and I have a feeling I'm going to love it.

February Love With Food Tasting Box Review

I feel like I say this every month, but February's Love With Food box is my most favorite one yet!  I really liked a good amount of the items this month, and they featured a few of my favorite brands.

*Disclaimer: This box was purchased by See, Shop, Love! Post contains affiliate links.


The theme is, appropriately, Mardi Gras, though I felt that most of the snacks included mostly could be appropriate for any region.  The themes don't matter as much to me, though; what I'm really interested in is getting some good snacks!

Love With Food has three box options:
  • Tasting Box: $10/month, 8+ snacks per month
  • Deluxe Box: $17/month, 16-20 snacks per month
  • Gluten Free Box: $24.50/month, 8-12 snacks per month
    • Get 50% off your first Gluten Free box with coupon code GFSAS
All boxes have free shipping to addresses within the U.S. and its territories.  They also donate one meal to a hungry child for each Tasting Box purchase, and two meals per box for the Deluxe and Gluten Free boxes.


I took this photo with my iPhone because I wanted to eat them right away and didn't want to wait to have good natural lighting the next day, so the quality isn't as great.  Anyway....
  • Snikiddy Baked Mac n' Cheese Puffs - I love Snikiddy!  They have fantastic snacks that have less bad stuff in them than regular chips.  These puffs are one of my favorites because they're perfectly cheesy.
  • Boulder Canyon Olive Oil Kettle Chips - Kettle chips are also one of my favorite snacks.  I thought these would taste more like olive oil, but they were basically just "plain" chips.  I liked them a lot because I do love the crunch of kettle chips.
  • Monbana Traditional Hot Chocolate - I'm actually drinking this as I write this post, and it's very good!  It's just a basic hot chocolate, but it's nice and creamy.
  • Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning - This is the most obvious "Mardi Gras" product in the box.  It's MSG-free and vegan.  I'm going to use it with chicken this week.
  • Dilettante Toffee Crunch Trufflecremes - At first I thought these were going to have a hard toffee center, but it was actually a creamy chocolate filling with little bits of toffee (hence the "trufflecreme" name).  I loved them and I want more!
  • Dolcetto Lemon Wafer Bites - The first photo I took with these was blurry and then I ate them before taking a new photo, but they were a .7 oz package.  I ate them with my morning coffee and they were wonderful.  I loved how light and airy they were, and the lemon creme filling had the perfect amount of flavor.
  • Rise Bar Protein+ Almond Honey Bar - I've had other Rise Bars before that I enjoyed, but this one wasn't one of my favorites.  The flavor was okay, but I didn't care for the texture.  It was kind of grainy and sandy.
  • Divine Chocolate Milk Chocolate Mini Pieces - Divine Chocolate is one of my favorite chocolate brands.  They're fair-trade certified and the chocolate is so smooth and delicious!  I had a full-sized version of this bar in my cupboard when I got the box!
Bottom Line: Aside from the Rise Bar, I loved everything from this box!  I was very happy to see Snikiddy and Divine Chocolate, and I also was happy to be introduced to the other brands.  I am always happy with Love With Food's boxes, and I can't wait to see what they include next month!

Sunday Thoughts + Link Love

I almost wasn't going to do a "thoughts" post this week (I normally do them on Saturdays) because I didn't feel that I had anything to talk about.  But then I started watching the new sitcom Fresh Off the Boat and it got me thinking!


If you haven't heard of Fresh Off the Boat, it airs at 8pm EST on Tuesdays on ABC.  It's inspired by Eddie Huang's memoir of the same name, which is about his experiences growing up as a Taiwanese kid in Orlando, Florida.  His mom, Jessica (played by Constance Wu), is a borderline stereotypical Asian mom who stresses good grades and obedience, but there is a lot more to her than just that.  His dad, Louis (played by Randall Park), is the more gentle of the two and moved the family to Orlando after he started a cowboy-themed restaurant.

I had been meaning to catch this show, but it airs at the same time as Parks and Recreation, which takes precedence for me.  Luckily, it's available on Hulu Plus, so I started watching it this weekend.  I love it!  Constance Wu is hilarious as Jessica, and I can relate a lot to what's going on.  I'm Korean and was adopted at 5 months old by a white family, so I don't know what it's like to grow up in an Asian household, but I do know what it's like to be an Asian kid in a mostly white community.  In the pilot, Eddie gets made fun of by the popular kids because of the food his mom packed him ("Ying Ming's eating worms!"), and he ends up eating outside with the janitor.

Jessica with the neighborhood moms / Nicole Wilder, ABC
The character I relate to most, though, is Jessica.  She tries her best to fit in with the neighborhood moms, all of which are very clique-y and judgmental.  In the most recent episode I watched ("The Shunning"), Jessica makes a tofu dish to share with the women and they all pass it around, making passive-aggressive comments, and no one eats it.  They patronize her by saying something along the lines of, "But we appreciate that you took the time to cook it!"  This struck a chord with me because, as a kid, I went through a very similar experience.  Some of the popular girls lived in my neighborhood growing up, and they would occasionally invite me to hang out with them.  Of course, being a child who wanted to fit in and be "cool," I would always say yes.  Often they would do what a lot of kids do and make fun of me because my family didn't have as much money as theirs, or they'd make me feel like I didn't quite fit into their social circle.  And frankly, I didn't.  They kept me around to make themselves feel superior, just like the women in the show did to Jessica.

Now, I realize that this show is a sitcom and not everything needs to be analyzed in such an in-depth way, but what I love about it is that it brings the experiences of an Asian family to primetime, something that hasn't been around for a very long time (the last time an Asian-American sitcom was on TV was back in 1994, Margaret Cho's All American Girl).  These are situations that I can relate to, and I hope that TV audiences embrace this show.  It tackles race issues, but is still really funny.

Have you watched Fresh Off the Boat?  I'm curious to hear what you think of it!

Now, for some link love....

Devera Naturals Snow Flower Creme Review

Devera Naturals creates wonderful products for naturally beautiful skin.  I have been using their Snow Flower Creme and love how soft it makes my skin feel!

*Disclaimer: This product was sent to See, Shop, Love! for review purposes.


The company was inspired by a meeting the founder, Linda, had with woman named Marilu.  Marilu and her grandchildren made their own natural skincare products based on recipes that were formulated by their Swiss ancestors.  They even infused botanicals from the family's garden into the recipes.  Marilu gave Linda some samples of their products and she was soon hooked on them!

The company is named after Linda's mother, Devera Rose, who passed away in 2004.  Shortly after, Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer.  In 2006, although she was still battling breast cancer, she and Marilu's family teamed up to bring Devera Naturals to the masses.  I'm so glad that she did!


I opted to try the Snow Flower Creme because I was intrigued by the name.  It contains edelweiss plant stem cells, which have been shown to decrease wrinkles by up to 15% in just 22 days.  The cream also contains goji berry extract, which helps to smooth, lift, and firm the skin.  You can view the rest of the ingredients in the photo above or at the product page.

I don't yet have to worry about wrinkles, but a little preventive care can't hurt!  Regardless of whether you are beginning to develop fine lines or not, this cream is suitable for anyone who is looking for a gentle moisturizer.  The texture is silky smooth, and the air pump dispenses just enough product to cover the face (two pumps are recommended if you want to apply it to your neck as well).  I can see this 1 fl oz bottle lasting me for a while.

Bottom Line: I am very impressed with this cream and am interested in trying more products from the Devera Naturals line!  I love that they use natural, botanical ingredients, and I also love the story behind how the company was founded.  If you're looking for an effective yet gentle moisturizer, I definitely recommend giving the Devera Naturals Snow Flower Creme a try!
