Seasonsbox June 2013 review!

My June 2013 Seasonsbox finally arrived a few days ago!
This is my first box that has shipped from the United States. Recenetly Seasonsbox underwent quite a few changes and one of them was moving their operations to the US.
One reason I has signed up for this box was because it shipped from Canada and also showed up in my mailbox pretty quickly.
Now it takes almost a whole month to receive my box- with shipping this slow I am not too sure I would want to send a box as a gift. When they did ship from Canada I was going to send quite a few boxes to family for gifts.

Unboxing done in pictures!

Product infocard!

Organic Tagua bracelet an d Vance Family candle.

The first item I tried in my box was the organic tagua bracelet. This item is made from the palm tree nut and dyed with organic Italian dyes. This is a very lovely bracelet and feels pretty much like stone and has quite some weight to it. The blue is more like a lapis dark shade and is very pretty. There is also some beige and brown that did not show up in the photo.
I have not worn this bracelet yet as I find it a bit tight on my wrist- but maybe wearing it a bit should help.
This is the kind of bracelet that goes with everything and has quite a classic look!

The Vance Family Soy Candle in pineapple coconut scent has a lovely tropical aroma and not too much coconut. I am not a big fan of coconut scents and was worried this candle would be too much coconut.
Luckily it smells more like a tropical drink and has a very fruity tropical scent.
The candle is not very strongly scented though and smells more when it is not lit, it seems. When I did light the candle the scent is extremely light. I was told it is because they only use organic flavor oils to scent the candle and not chemicals.
I do plan on buying a few more of these candles to test out the scents!

Rishi Iced Tea in Tropical Crimson

The Organic Rishi Iced Tea in Tropical Crimson looks very tasty.
But when you have gotten tea in pretty much every second Seasonsbox, that is a lot of tea to drink!
I do plan on making some of this later today to take out with me. It should be very refreshing with this humid weather.
An update will follow once I try the tea......

Moksa organic Lemon Poppyseed Exfoliating Bar!

I like exfoliating soaps and like lemon too, so I'm sure I will enjoy this soap.
The bar has a very lemony smell, there is supposed to be vanilla bean in it too but my nose can not detect it.
The bar is quite a large hefty size too weighing in at 184gr or 6.5oz.
I already have a few other soap bars from earlier Seasonsboxes, so eventually I will get around to using this one.
If anyone has already used this soap bar, what did you think about it?
I am interested in other Moksa products like their body oils and hopefully I will see something else of that brand in a box this year?
