August Treatbox

The first time I received a TreatBox was last month, when I did a fun collaboration with Lisa from Lisa’s Notebook. You can read my post here and Lisa’s post here. As I loved the idea of a box of surprises arriving through my letterbox at the start of the month, I treated myself to the August box too! (Sorry Student Loan). Anyway, it was worth it, and on August 1st, a huge bundle of tropical themed goodies including 10 happiness cards (I’m such a sucker for inspirational quotes) arrived.

TreatBox is a monthly subscription box which contains a mix of surprises; anything from inspirational quotes, stationary, home accessories, jewellery, edible treats, beauty products, exclusive products designed by TreatBox and so much more! The idea was started by Zoe back in 2016 and it has since grown into a team who are passionate about creating boxes filled with love and awesome products.

Inside the August box: 10 Happiness Cards, Shobu Bath Bomb, Anatomicals Face Mask, Lunch/Cool Bag, Tropical Notebook, ‘You Can Plant A Dream’ Pencil and Today print (exclusive to TreatBox).

TreatBox is a bit like a lucky dip just without those naff prizes. The first product which I spotted was the Anatomicals Botanical Purifying Tea Tree Face Mask which seemed very green and very appropriate considering the tropical theme. This botanical purifying face mask is an individually packaged soft cloth facial mask and contains tea tree extract to deliver unsurpassed moisture and nourishment to your skin.

Anatomicals sound like a fun and friendly brand: Our ingredients are all free from animal testing – We think fluffy bunnies are cute enough without Anatomicals products or ingredients. It’s just us humans that need a bit of help sometimes! All of our formulas are also paraben free. Good choice, TreatBox! 

The second beauty product is a pretty genius idea if you ask me: a bath bomb for the shower! It’s designed by Shobu – two busy mums (Leanne & Shelley), who wanted that wonderful at home spa experience but didn’t have the time to soak in the bath. I received Breathe, a careful selection of Eucapylptus, Rosemary & Peppermint to help on those days when you just need that little bit of help to breathe easy.

It’s recommended to be used in the morning to clear your head to start the day. Eucalyptus is known for opening up the airways, whilst Rosemary relaxes the muscles to enable Peppermint to help you stimulate alertness for clarity and focus. Sounds perfect! Check out their full range of shower bombs here.

My personal highlight of this months box is the 10 Happiness Cards. These are an instant reminder that we should just breathe, relax and slow down. They are beautifully designed by TreatBox and I absolutely love the splash of colour and positivity. They are ideal for sticking on your desk, fridge, wall, wherever! I think they are also the perfect size to use as bookmarks too.

My favourites are: ‘You gotta nourish to flourish’ and ‘Let’s root for each other and watch each other grow’.

Inspirational cards and a pretty notebook! This is my dream box! Everything in this box is so green, gorgeous and vibrant. This is another product created by TreatBox and isn’t available anywhere else, so even more reason to subscribe! It’s such a beautiful notebook, it almost seems too nice to write in.

TreatBox say: “No notebook is complete without its partner in crime! It needs it’s own pencil of course” These pencil quotes vary, and I love mine – You Can Plant A Dream is so motivational and it’s PINK! 

If that wasn’t enough goodies, TreatBox have also included this lush tropical leaves lunch box/cool bag. It’s such a pretty little bag and would be ideal for days out or taking to work to keep your lunch chilled.  I’m loving this months theme, tropical, cool and refreshing – it’s perfect for the summer!

TreatBox say that self-care is not a privilege, it is a necessity. Every item in this box is made especially for a bit of ‘me time’ – whether that is treating yourself to a home spa, writing or drawing in your pretty notebook, feeling inspired with the happiness cards or simply taking time out to enjoy some fresh and tasty food. It’s great value for money, the August TreatBox has a RRP of over £25: a one off box is £12.96 and you can save even more money by selecting a 3, 6 or 12 month package.

I really loved this box and it’s given me all the tropical summer chilled out vibes. Have you ordered a TreatBox? Let me know what you think of the August box in the comments. I’d love to hear from you!

    I love the idea of a bath bomb for the shower – I have a few friends who live in flats that don’t have baths so this will be the perfect gift for them!

    • August 7, 2018 / 9:05 am

      Thanks Rachael! 💖 That’s such a great idea! I’ve since used the one in the box and it smells amazing and lasts quite a while too ☺️ xx

  12. August 6, 2018 / 4:21 pm

    What a cute bundle to share with us! My favorite part are the inspirational cards, which I like to make for myself online on Canva. I like their statement about ‘me time’s is a necessity. So important we take personal time to relax and just be carefree and cater to our own needs.

    Anatomicals is a really cool brand.
    And I have to see that “bath bomb for the shower” in action (although I’m not sure you’ll agree to that lol)

    Why does Britain get all the good sub boxes?!

    • August 7, 2018 / 10:50 am

      Ha ha, that made me laugh 😂 I’ve used the shower bath bomb and can report its very nice and lasts for a while too ☺️. Thanks for checking out the post Kate! 💖 xx

    Oh my goodness what a fabulous box of goodies! My eye was immediately drawn to the face mask- probably because I could so with one right now as my post-holiday skin is dreadful 😂 However my favourite item has to be the happiness cards they are so cute and I love anything that can help lift your mood and they certainly would.
    Great post thanks for sharing

  27. August 7, 2018 / 7:17 pm

    I really want to get a subscription box at some point – they always seem so exciting 😀 knowing you have a little surprise turning up each month. This one sounds lovely – I love the products they have included. I didn’t know the bath bombs that were designed for showers existed! I always have showers so I’ve never really used a bath bomb, so would love to try that one out! Also, that notebook and lunch box/cool bag are gorgeous – I love the designs on them! Great review 🙂


    • August 10, 2018 / 10:49 am

      Thanks so much for the lovely comment Amy! 💖 Same here, I never knew shower bath bombs existed either and now I’m wondering how I lived without them he he 🙈😂. Genius idea! I love the lunch bag too! Glad you enjoyed the post lovely 😘 xx

  28. August 7, 2018 / 7:23 pm

  29. August 7, 2018 / 8:17 pm

    I feel like you have this natural ora that just draws cute things towards it!! I absolutely ADORE the look of this box, I’ve seen a few around recently that have mixed products rather than just beauty or books etc and I love them! I really wish I had the money to have a monthly one, one day!! I love the little quote cards, “no rain, no flowers” has always been one of my favourite quotes for getting through tough times, along with the one about blooming all year round. My mum would snap that lunch bag right up too, she’s such a sucker for those, especially ones with cute designs on like that!
    Alice Xx

    • August 10, 2018 / 10:54 am

      Thank you so much for the lovely kind comments Alice! 💖 You are always so sweet. It’s such a nice little box of treats isn’t it. I just brought a couple of one off boxes as I can really do monthly subscriptions either 🙈. I love that quote too, it’s so reassuring and comforting. Aww he he, your mum has good taste too! Glad you enjoyed the post lovely! 💕😍 xx

  30. August 7, 2018 / 8:33 pm

    Oh my word, I’ve never heard of these boxes before but they look and sound amazing! Who knew you could get a shower-bomb? They look as if they’d be great not only as a little personal treat but could make a great gift too. Especially if you have friends anything like mine who seem to be harder to buy for as we get older! Great post xx

    • August 10, 2018 / 11:13 am

      Thank you so much lovely! 💖Its such a fab box of goodies isn’t it. A shower bath bomb is a brilliant idea, I wish I knew about them sooner 😍. I agree, perfect for gifts! Glad you enjoyed the post xx

  31. August 7, 2018 / 9:02 pm

    wow such a great box for this month! we sell shower bath bombs at my job here in the US and we sell out of them so quickly and those happiness cards are SOO cute. I am also sucker for cute inspirational quotes! im so glad you enjoyed your box this month, thanks for sharing it with us

    Cute box! I love the quote “It’s okay not to be okay” – also really intrigued by the shower bath bomb thing. I always miss out on bath bombs because I only have a shower, so that really caught my eye.
