Inside the Box: Simple Summer Evenings

This box was designed to capture the ease and simplicity of summer nights, and included a collection of items to inspire you to take an evening or a few moments for self-care.  Let's take a look at what was inside!

Whimsy by Lindsay Cooling Menthol Foot Scrub

Refresh with this cooling foot scrub to soothe tired feet. Natural jojoba and raw turbinado sugar exfoliate skin while cacao butter, shea butter and sweet almond oil lock in moisture. Vegan and cruelty-free. 

I knew I right away that I wanted to include a cooling bath or body product, and this menthol-based, natural food scrub was perfect! Our feet take a beating, especially during the summer, and this is the prefect way to refresh them.

Mink Chocolates Mermaid's Choice Salted Caramel Sauce

Handcrafted in Vancouver, this delicious combination combines caramel with fleur de sel and a touch of rosemary. In addition to an ice cream topping, its also delicious on pancakes, french toast, or fresh fruit. 

I thought that sundae toppings would be such a fun treat for a summertime box!  I love that this caramel sauce is locally made (and award-winning!).

Sweetapolita Chocolate Crunchy Sprinkles

Candy sweet, these chocolate sprinkles contain a touch of cocoa and are yummy on their own as well as on an ice cream sundae. Vegan and gluten-free. 

These vegan sprinkles complement the caramel sauce perfectly!  I love that they are chocolate flavoured to add a touch of cocoa.

Canvas Candle Co. Bug Be Gone

Enjoy your relaxing summer evening bug-free with this soy candle hand poured in Port Moody, BC. Citronella essential oil keeps bugs away naturally while the fresh lemongrass scent is super relaxing. 

A simple summer evening makes me instantly think of relaxing on the patio - which can be problematic with bugs.  I already love Canvas Candle Co., and love that this candle has lemongrass so get the relaxing benefits of burning a candle while also keeping bugs away.

Mes Amies Soaps Facial Mask Bar

This facial mask bar is made with a selection of ingredients to care for your skin: activated charcoal and kaolin clay to remove impurities, aloe vera and shea butter to soothe and moisturize, and frankincense to renew dry, and tired skin.

I discovered Mes Amies Soaps awhile back, and fell in love with their facial mask bars!  It's such a unique idea, and makes applying a facial mask less messy, which makes you want to take the time to treat yourself even more.  This bar has activated charcoal and clay to help cleanse your skin.
