Taste and Curiosity China Review and 15% Off Coupon

I'm back with another review from Taste and Curiosity, a new international snack box. I've really enjoyed their Japan and Korea boxes, and now they've sent me the China box to share with you!

*Disclaimer: This box was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

Taste and Curiosity currently has three boxes available with plans to expand to other countries very soon. European boxes are what they have planned net! They are not currently a renewing subscription; each box you purchase is a one-time purchase. Here are the options:
  • Japan Box: $19
  • China/Taiwan Box: on sale for $17
  • Korea Box: on sale for $17
You can also purchase all three boxes for $49. Shipping is free but they only ship to the U.S. (including Alaska and Hawaii) right now.

The China/Taiwan Box is titled The Imperial Set. Each box features full-sized snacks plus a magnet with an inspirational quotation on it. The info card describes all of the snacks.

There were 10 snacks in this box, with a good mix of savory and sweet! Here's what's inside:
  • Cha Cha Potato Cracker - The green package is wasabi flavored and the black are spicy. I haven't tried these yet but both flavors sound yummy!
  • Crunchoco - This is a big chocolate cookie infused with milk chocolate and almonds. Most of the almonds fell off of the cookie and were at the bottom of the package, but I'm not a huge fan of almonds anyway so it didn't bother me.
  • Chrysanthemum Tea - This is made from rare chrysanthemum flowers and each pack makes 2-3 cups of tea. I've never had chrysanthemum tea before so I'm very curious to see how this tastes.
  • Crispy Peanut Candy - These are the little pink and white packages at the bottom of the photo. They're a Chinese New Year favorite and are sweet and crunchy. As soon as I took them out of the package I knew what they were because they smelled deliciously of peanut butter!
  • White Rabbit Candy - When I saw these I loved them right away because of the cute rabbits on the packaging! They're milky candies that have been around for over a century. The inner rice wrapper is also edible.
  • Matcha Choco Roll - I love choco rolls! It's a wafer roll cookie coated in cream with a matcha green tea core. I usually don't like matcha but this tasted so good!
  • Pineapple Cake - This has a buttermilk crust with a sweet pineapple jam filling. They're a famous Taiwanese pastry.
  • Bin Bin Rice Cracker - These are classic Chinese snacks with a subtle savory flavor. I love rice crackers for their simplicity.

A pair of chopsticks was also included in the box, which was a nice treat! They have little white flowers on them. The quotation on the inspirational magnet is from Confucius.

Clockwise from upper left are the Pineapple Cake, Crunchoco cookie, Crispy Peanut Candies, and Chocoroll unwrapped.
Bottom Line: This was another great box from Taste and Curiosity! I had a lot of fun trying the snacks and learning more about them. I especially liked the extra chopsticks. I think these boxes are a great way to try high quality snacks from different countries!

The team at Nerd Block is launching a brand new subscription that I think will be really popular: Valor Blacks! It's a monthly subscription dedicated to honoring members of protective services organizations, including the military, law enforcement, and first responders.

Rovectin Skin Essentials Review

My skin goes a little haywire in the winter because the air is so dry. I have oily skin that's also sensitive, so even though it's less oily in the winter it gets really irritated by the harsh winter weather. Luckily Rovectin has a wonderful line of skincare products to help keep skin fresh and nourished!

*Dislcaimer: These products were sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

Rovectin is a derma-cosmetic brand originally from Korea that creates to help improve the quality of life for those suffering from side effects of chemotherapy, such as irritated skin. These anti-irritant products were developed at their Santa Monica, California research center in 2011 and are made without any elements that may cause skin irritation.

While these products were created to help those undergoing chemotherapy treatments, they can be used by anyone who suffers from skin problems like dry or aging skin. The Skin Essentials line contains the Barrier Repair Complex (BRC) to decrease skin moisture loss, an Asta Cell Fortifier to scavenge free radicals, and a Silky Shielding Base to deliver a high concentration of nutrients to the skin. The products are made without harsh chemical ingredients, parabens, synthetic colors and fragrances, formaldehyde-releasing preservatives, alcohol solvents, animal-sourced ingredients, comedogenic ingredients, or dioxane-containing surfactants.

The Skin Essentials line is made up of four products. I used them all for about a month and found them to be quite gentle.

The Conditioning Cleanser was the first step in my routine. It's hypoallergenic and and works to maintain the skin's hydro-lipid balance. Basically, wash the bad stuff off and keep the good stuff in to help your skin stay elasticized and moisturized. I will say that if I didn't add a moisturizer shortly after my skin did feel a little tight after using it, which was surprising to me. I didn't leave a huge amount of time in between cleansing and moisturizing, maybe a minute or two because I like to apply eye cream and let it set before moisturizer, but it was one thing I noticed that I wanted to share.

The Barrier Repair Cream Concentrate is the cream in the smaller tube (far right of the photo) and was what I used first after using the cleanser. It's a highly concentrated cream for very dry areas of the skin. I thought it might be too thick or heavy for my face, but it actually felt very light and did a good job of making my skin feel soft and nourished after using it.

I then tried using the Barrier Repair Cream on my face after cleansing, and I've also been using it on my body after I get out of the shower. It's hypoallergenic and appropriate for use on the face and body, and I found it absorbed quickly into my skin. I get dry patches on my arms and hands and this did a good job of keeping them at bay.

Last up is the Barrier Repair Face Oil. I absolutely adore using face oils; they're wonderful for both oily and dry skin. This one has nourishing squalene, plum seed extract, and neroli oil. You can add a few drops into your cream moisturizer, but I prefer to use it alone. Just two drops from the dropper were all I needed for my entire face, and it absorbed quickly and made my skin feel so soft.
Bottom Line: I had a great experience with the Rovectin Skin Essentials line. I have dry skin, especially on my body, during the winter and these products did a great job of providing long-lasting moisture!

January Chroma.Club Review and Coupon

If you like to relax with some adult coloring, Chroma.Club is the perfect subscription for you! They've recently revamped their books and now have bigger pages with beautiful illustrations from a variety of artists.

*Disclaimer: This box was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

When you subscribe you Chroma.Club you'll get a monthly book filled with 11+ illustrations with all different designs. They have three affordable pricing options:
  • Monthly: $8 per month
  • Three Month Prepay: $21 every three months (save $3)
  • Six Month Prepay: $39 every six months (save $9)

The books are printed portrait-style and are shipped in a recyclable mailer. I love opening it up and seeing which indie artists' pictures they've featured for the month!

The coloring pages are printed on one-sided layouts so you can tear them out and display them. The pictures vary in intricacy and theme, so there's plenty of options for stress-relieving coloring. This month Chroma.Club also started including information about each of the artists on the opposite side of the page with their illustrations which is a feature I really like. It was fun being able to read about the artist and their inspirations!
Bottom Line: I think Chroma.Club is a great and affordable way to take some time out for yourself. I love coloring and the Chroma.Club books always have creative designs to choose from!

Devera Naturals Review and 25% off Coupon!

I have reviewed Devera Naturals in the past and had a great experience using their Snow Flower Creme (read that review here). Their wonderful anti-aging products are now available on Amazon and are on sale for the month of January!

*Disclaimer: These products were sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

Devera Naturals uses edelweiss plant stem cells in their products to reduce signs of aging. Edelweiss is a flowering plant belonging to the daisy family that grows in the Alps. I can't help but start singing the song from The Sound of Music in my head when I hear the name! Edelweiss extracts have a high concentration of flavonoids and phenolic acid that help fight UV-induced skin damage. The plant stem cells have the unique ability to replenish and regenerate our own human stem cells, thus delaying the aging of essential skin cells.

But does it really work? I can say that my prior experience with the Snow Flower Creme was wonderful. I am 28 (and was 26 when I wrote the previous review) so I don't have any wrinkles right now to worry about, but I think it's never too early to start using preventive skin care. While I can't comment on how well it reduced wrinkles since I don't have any, Devera Naturals states that volunteers using a cream incorporating edelweiss plant stem cells at 1% twice daily saw a 15% reduction in the appearance of wrinkles in just 22 days.

The Snow Flower Creme is light and silky smooth. I used it in the morning and at night and I found that it absorbed into my skin quickly and didn't feel greasy or heavy throughout the day. It also comes in an airtight pump dispenser which preserves the quality of the product and ensures that the anti-aging ingredients don't lose their potency.

The Miracle Eyes cream was new to me this time around. My skincare routines are actually quite soothing to me; I love pampering myself, especially at night. I started using eye cream a few years ago and I can't believe I hadn't been using it sooner. The Miracle Eyes cream is lovely, especially at night. The cream is a bit thicker and creamier than I usually see for eye creams, but that's not a criticism. It's very rich and a little goes a long way. I dabbed a pea sized amount, per the instructions, under my eyes after cleansing and it almost felt cool to the touch when applied. Along with the edelweiss stem cells, the cream also contains goji berry extract, hyaluronic acid, and marine extracts to smooth and firm the delicate eye area and green tea and cucumber to reduce puffiness and dark circles.
Bottom Line: I have had positive results with the Devera Naturals products that I've tried and I think they are a great way to pamper yourself! I also like that they're a Leaping Bunny-certified cruelty free company.

February Handmade Happy Mail Review and Giveaway

I love getting things in the mail which is part of what makes being a box blogger so fun. But even better than a package is a handwritten card from a friend. Handmade Happy Mail is a subscription that sends gorgeous cards for all occasions, making it easy to show someone you care!

*Disclaimer: This box was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

Handmade Happy Mail believes that the secret to making memories is by celebrating them now with handmade cards. They want their subscribers to have the perfect greeting card at hand for any occasion so they send five exquisitely designed cards to your door, including one holiday card, two general sentiment cards (thank you, etc.), and two birthday cards. They also include five first-class stamps so you can mail your cards right away!

The box costs only $24.99 per month or a three-month pre-pay for $69. Shipping is free to the U.S. I think this is a great deal, and I think you will too once you see how absolutely beautiful the cards are!

The cards come packaged in a plastic overwrap to protect them during shipping. The box itself is on the smaller side and is personalized with your name and address. I removed my address in the first photo for privacy reasons, but you get the idea.

I love the packaging of the box. I really appreciate when the packaging is clearly well thought out and done with care. Everything about the box and the way it's put together is really cute and adds to the overall charm.

But on to the most important part -- the cards! I found myself removing them from the plastic packaging ever-so-carefully because I didn't want to damage them. The designs are just beyond amazing and I was so impressed by them. I wasn't expecting them to have pop-up elements, either, but I really like that detail. I don't know if you can tell from the photo above, but each card has parts that are raised from the paper. These cards would easily cost you $5 each or more in a traditional store.

At first I thought the card in the bottom right hand corner was damaged because it says "Sending l_ve," but the balloon travels down the string to become the O in love! Such a cute and creative detail.

This Valentine's Day card is my favorite of the bunch. It fits perfectly with the theme for February, which is Loving Care. The little birds are so cute and I just love the overall design and composition of this card.
Bottom Line: I just can't say enough how gorgeous these handmade cards are! I think they are so much better quality than anything I've seen in stores and I can't wait to send them to my friends and family. Handmade Happy Mail is an excellent value and I fully recommend them!

Handmade Happy Mail has generously offered a three-month subscription to one of my readers! Enter to win using the Rafflecopter below. This sweepstakes is open to U.S. residents aged 18+ and ends at 12 AM EST on january 27, 2017.

GLOW for a cause Wish Body Butter Review

It's always fun to pamper yourself, but it's even better when you can give back while doing so, yeah? GLOW For a Cause makes this easy with their wonderful line of skin care and body care products!

*Disclaimer: This product was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

GLOW for a cause was founded by an artist, teacher, and skincare productista named Johanna Querry Smith. They use the finest and purest ingredients available to craft pampering products that also give back to their non-profit partners. 5% of all sales is donated to these partners, which include:
  • Cowgirls vs. Cancer - provides retreat scholarships for women with breast cancer to experience healing with horses and yoga in Montana
  • Boston Firefighter's Burn Foundation - comprised of Boston firefighters who volunteer their time to provide emotional and financial support to burn victims and their families
  • The Red Sox Foundation - provides tutoring, mentoring, enrichment programs, and college scholarships to academically-talented but economically disadvantaged students through their Red Sox Scholars Program
  • MaxFund Animal Adoption Center - a true no-kill animal shelter in Colorado that gives injured, abandoned, and abused animals a second chance at life
  • The Gathering Place - the only drop-in center in Denver for women, children, and transgender people who are experience homelessness or poverty
  • Berni's Journey - a cinematic quest that serves as a mirror to reflect on universal themes of happiness, hope, and living authentically.
As you can see, their partners span a wide breadth of causes, so you can feel great knowing that your purchase is helping a lot of people!

I received the Wish Body Butter to review and I cannot rave enough about it! The cream is rich and thick, the way I like a body butter to be. My favorite part is the scent, though; it smells absolutely amazing! The Wish scent has notes of sparkling light florals, white tea, and bergamot. It's a great mix of sweet with a little bit of floral and I can't get enough of it.

The Body Butter is free from parabens, phthalates, gluten, and is cruelty-free and made in the USA. It has moisturizing oils of coconut, jojoba, sunflower, and Vitamin E to protect the skin. I love this for winter because there's just something so luxurious about using a nice, creamy body butter in the cold winter months. Less moisture in the air means much dryer skin, and using this after the shower is like wrapping yourself in a soft blanket. I know that may sound like an odd simile, but I just feel like I'm adding another layer of warmth and protection when I use this!

GLOW for a cause has many other Body Butters available in different scents, plus perfumes, candles, facial moisturizers, and clay scrubs.
Bottom Line: I love the GLOW for a cause Wish Body Butter, especially because it's from a company that gives back to several non-profit organizations. If you're looking for an affordable way to pamper yourself, you must check them out!

January BookCase.Club Review and Coupon

I'm always excited to tear into my BookCase.Club box! They've chosen excellent books in all the past boxes and have plenty of great themes to choose from.

*Disclaimer: This box was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

BookCase.Club is an affordable way to satiate your inner book lover! They send two hand-picked books every month for only $9.99, and cheaper options per box if you sign up for three-, six-, and 12-month options.

There are eight different cases to choose from:

  • Thrill Seeker - mystery/thriller
  • Strange Worlds - sci-fi/fantasy
  • Teenage Dreams - young adult novels
  • Read To Me - four children's picture books
  • Blind Date - paranormal romance
  • Booking for Love - romance
  • Quarterly Cook Books - two cook books every three months
  • Quarterly Military History - two military history books every three months

This is a review of the Strange Worlds case. I love this case because they really do send books with some strange worlds in them! As you can see, everything is packaged neatly and your books are safely guarded by recyclable paper. Usually the boxes contain one hardcover and one paperback, but this month I received two hardcover books. I don't have a preference between the two, but I know a lot of people prefer hardcovers, so this was a nice treat.

An even better treat, though, was that one of the books is a signed first edition! I immediately recognized Chuck Palaniuk's name when I opened the box, as he's most well-known for writing Fight Club. I've actually never read it (or seen the movie), but I know he's a popular author so I was excited to receive this novel, Beautiful You. Even better that it's signed! Here's the synopsis from Amazon:

Penny Harrigan is a low-level associate in a big Manhattan law firm. She has an apartment, but no love life. When C. Linus Maxwell, a mega-billionaire and international playboy, invites her to dinner and then whisks her off to a hotel in Paris, where he brings her to undreamed-of heights of sexual gratification for days on end, Penny is, well, pleased. However, when Penny discovers she is a test subject for a line of female sex toys so effective that women by the millions are lining up outside the stores to buy it on opening day, she understands the gravity the situation. A billion husbands are about to be replaced. What is Maxwell really up to? Erotically enabled world domination? Penny sets out to discover his motivations, and with a little help, stop him before it is too late.

I have to admit that I do judge a book by its cover sometimes, and this one has an absolutely gorgeous one! The Thinking Woman's Guide To Real Magic by Emily Croy Barker is a fantasy novel that looks like it'll be as great as its cover:

During a miserable weekend at a friend’s wedding, eager to forget about her disastrous breakup and stalled dissertation, Nora Fischer wanders off and somehow finds herself in another realm. There, she meets glamorous Ilissa—who introduces Nora to a decadent new world—and her gorgeous son Raclin. But when the elegant veneer of this dreamland shatters, Nora finds herself in a fairy tale gone incredibly wrong. And the only way she can survive is by learning real magic herself.

Bottom Line: I'm honestly not sure which book I'm going to read first! Beautiful You certainly sounds risque, but given that it's a Palaniuk novel I'm sure there's more to it than needless erotica. The Thinking Woman's Guide To Real Magic seems like a novel that would instantly suck me in. Maybe I'll read them both at the same time!

December The Music Box Review and Coupon

If you like discovering new music then you should definitely check out The Music Box! They're the #1 music-related subscription box and they have three affordable options that bring new artists to your door every month.

*Disclaimer: This box was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

The Music Box sends carefully-selected music from their Featured Artists, and a portion of their proceeds will be used to sponsor these artists. They have three box options, all with free shipping:
  • The Envelope - $5 per month (retail value $15) for an exclusive monthly compilation CD with various artists and genres. This is also available digitally as an e-mail including a download of the CD.
  • The Box - $12 per month (retail value $20+) for two CDs and extra swag such as tickets, stickers, download cards, candy, and more!
  • The Bundle - $15 per month (retail value $35) for both The Envelope and The Box.
They also have a new Rock Vinyl Box for $36.95 and free shipping (ships to U.S. only) with a 12" vinyl, 7" vinyl, three CDs, and a band t-shirt.

The Music Box is available for the following genres:
  • Pop/Rock
  • Pop/Punk
  • Alternative/Indie
  • Rock
  • Hard Rock/Metal
  • Surprise (all genres)

I have to admit that I'm not a huge music person; I mostly listen to show tunes! But I do appreciate good artists and songwriters, and I think The Music Box is a great way to discover new music. This review is for The Bundle and I believe I received the Pop/Rock one, based on the Featured Artists.

As promised, The Bundle contained two CDs and a bunch of fun swag. There were three cards for digital downloads, two stickers, and a keychain. I think this is a great value for only $12!

The Featured Artists for December were Retro Youth and Nick Urb. The info card that came with the box lists both of their Facebook pages, and Retro Youth is under the rock genre and Nick Urb is folk/acoustic/pop. I listened to both CDs and I have to say, I did enjoy both!

Nick Urb's Until the End of Days is a little more my style, as I tend to gravitate more towards the chill acoustic side of rock. The songs are relaxing and are something one might expect to hear in a coffee shop--there's definitely a chill vibe. I really like it!

Retro Youth is from the UK and their debut album, B.R.A.V.E. was also included. Their style is definitely pop/rock, with driving drumbeats and guitar. Like I said, I'm not familiar with a lot of artists from this genre, but they kind of remind me of The Killers mixed with a more alternative vibe, if that makes sense?

The Bundle also contained three cards with free digital downloads for Jerry Dale Harris, Dylan Lloyd, and Panic in Eden. I took a closeup photo of Jerry Dale Harris's card because it was signed which was a nice touch! With these digital downloads you're getting three extra albums on top of the 2 CDs that came with the box,

I downloaded Jerry Dale Harris's album Modus Operandi and I really like it. His style is rock/folk and is recommended for fans of artists like Ed Sheeran.

I haven't downloaded the Panic in Eden or Dylan Lloyd albums yet, but I sampled both on their websites. Panic in Eden has a classic rock vibe, kind of reminds me of Led Zep, with a southern rock twist, too. Dylan Lloyd is listed as pop/cool pop on his Facebook page and I think that's an accurate description. His music reminds me of Usher.
Bottom Line: I think The Music Box is a great way to discover new music and it's really affordable. I like that they use some of their proceeds to support their featured artists. If you like discover new, independent artists then you have to give this box a try!

January Degustabox Review and 50% Off First Box

I think of Degustabox as my grocery goodies box. They always send great snacks and products that I might not normally pick up at the store but are a welcome addition to my pantry nonetheless!

*Disclaimer: This box was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review. Post contains affiliate links.

Degustabox is easily my favorite food subscription for a lot of reasons. First and most importantly, they always send delicious full-sized items! They're also incredibly affordable at only $19.99 per month with free shipping to the U.S. If you live in the UK, check out their UK box here.

Each month you'll get at least 10 full-sized foods that run the gamut from candy and chips to sauces and drinks. I've gotten a ton of new items in past boxes that are now regular favorites. You can also earn points by reviewing each item and/or referring friends, and once you earn 100 points you can trade them in for a free box!

January's box featured 10 items plus one bonus for people who filled out a survey for Degustabox last month, Here's what was inside:
  • One & Done Seasoning - This is the bonus item that was sent to some of the survey respondents from last month. The packaging says it's "the new salt and pepper" and it's made with salt, spices, dehydrated garlic and onion, and paprika, plus a few others. I'm going to use it as a rub for chicken.
  • Jolly Time Healthy Pop - Five cups of this microwave popcorn is only 100 calories, so it's a great snack without a ton of guilt. It's 100% whole grain, gluten-free, and non-GMO. I love popcorn as a snack and I might take a few bags to munch on at work.
  • Live Smart Kids Bars - Each box had one of four flavors and I received Berry Good. It's nut-free, vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO. The bar is a brown crisp rice base with raisins and cranberries and will be a good breakfast on-the-go.
  • Welch's Fruit n' Yogurt Snacks in Strawberry - I could easily eat this entire box in one sitting! These are little fruit snacks made with real strawberry that's covered in yogurt. They're so good and are also available in blueberry and cherry.
  • Cello Whisps - These are an award-winning snack made with 100% parmesan cheese baked into little crisps. I ate one on its own and, although I love parmesan cheese, it was a bit too strong for me to eat more than one as a snack. But I could definitely see myself using these as a garnish on salads and pastas.
  • McDonnells Indian Korma Curry Sauce - This sauce is a creamy coconut-flavored curry sauce created with a unique spice blend. I like using sauces like these with chicken in the slow cooker, which is exactly what I'll use this for.
  • Hungry Jack Complete Pumpkin Spice Pancake and Waffle Mix - I wish I had a waffle maker so I could make pumpkin spice waffles, but pancakes will be just as good! All you need to do to make these is add water to the mix so it's an easy breakfast.
  • ALO Refresh in Cucumber and Cantaloupe - This is an aloe vera beverage blended with cucumber and cantaloupe. It's non-GMO and made with straight-from-the-leaf aloe vera juice. I've had this drink before in the original variety and I liked it. If the aloe vera sounds weird to you I suggest still giving it a try because I found it to be a sweet and satisfying juice.
  • Go Organically Fruit Snacks - These are so good! They don't taste as artificial as some other fruit snacks I've tried, which makes sense because they're made with USDA-certified organic fruit. They're also non-GMO, gluten-free, and preservative-free.
  • Prince of Peace Ginger Honey Crystals - Ginger tea is my favorite type of tea, not only for the taste but also for the way it settles my stomach after I've eaten a bit too much (which I do often during this time of year). These are individual sachets of ginger and honey crystals that you can dissolve into water for a quick cup.
  • Entenmann's Little Bites in Party Cake - These brought me back to my childhood and school lunches. They're yummy little cakes with birthday cake sprinkles inside and were super moist and delicious.
Bottom Line: This was another lovely box from Degustabox! I already dug into a lot of the snacks and will definitely use the others. My favorites this month were the Go Organically fruit snacks and the Welch's Fruit n Yogurt.
