My final new monthly subscription box I am trying is WhimseyBox.  (UPDATE:  It appears as if WhimseyBox has gone out of business.  Do NOT subscribe.) Each month, for $15, you will be mailed a complete kit for a crafting project.  The kit includes all of the supplies, an inventory list, and detailed instructions with photos.  The March project was DIY Lemon Honey bath scrub and cream.  I was really happy with the choice and couldn't wait to put it all together.


The kit came with almond oil, coconut oil, shea butter, beewax, honey, sugar, cold pressed lemon essential oil, jars for your finished products, and pre-designed labels for the jars.  It took me probably 45 minutes to make both jars.  The scrub was the easiest because you just combined half of the almond oil, half of the honey, and all of the sugar.  The lotion took a little longer because you had to melt the beeswax and shea butter slowly.  I may have cheated and had some intervals with the microwave.  The final product smells delicious!  I'm debating on giving them away as a gift or keeping them to myself - leaning toward myself...


I'm looking forward to next month's surprise project.  And perhaps in the meantime, I may purchase one of the kits from a prior month's box...
