Sparking Joy Series: What Subscription Box Item(s) Brings You Joy Right Now?

I created a Sparking Joy series to open discussion on what subscription box item(s) are bringing you joy right now. For our new readers, I got this idea from a previous discussion here regarding the KonMari Method of organization which basically is keeping what “Sparks Joy” in your life and discarding what doesn’t.


What is Sparking Joy for me now is…

One Love Organics Gardenia + Tea Antioxidant Body Serum

One Love Organics Gardenia + Tea Antioxidant Body Serum

I love the scent. It “sparks joy” when I press the toggle to “on” and spray it all over. I love how the scented serum sinks in really fast. The dominant smell of gardenia, which is a gentle scent mingled with tea, reminds me of my grandfather who loved jasmine and gardenias.

At first I was hesistant to why a serum should be for the body? Was it another marketing ploy? Was it just another body oil? But it delivered in a way that a face serum does but for the body by giving a suppleness lotions and oils cannot achieve.

I am now supple and succulent!

This is my fourth bottle. I just finished one and have refilled it using another body oil received from a subscription box.


I first discovered One Love Organics Gardenia + Tea Antioxidant Body Serum in April 2015 PopSugar’s Box. Then I received it in the Fall 2015 Rachel Zoe’s Box of Style. Then it was in the Birchbox Limited Edition New Naturals Box which I bought when it first came out. Then I bought a second box (see my review here)!


In addition to it being a great body serum, the bottle itself is genius. There is a toggle on the bottle which prevents my Squeakers from turning it into an expensive water gun!


Here are the One Love Organics Gardenia + Tea Antioxidant Body Serum ingredients:

capric/caprylic triglyceride, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil*, camellia sinensis (green tea) seed oil*, cucurbita pepo (pumpkin) seed oil*, fragrance/parfum*, laminaria ochroleuca (kelp) extract, hippophae rhamnoides (sea buckthorn) oil*, salvia hispanica (chia) seed extract* (and) rosmarinus ocinalis (rosemary) leaf extract*, calendula ocinalis flower extract*, aspalathus linearis (rooibos tea) extract*, limnanthes alba (meadowfoam) seed oil.

    Right now I am in love with my Novica sterling silver earrings from the June/July Love Goodly box:

    I like delicate silver jewelry, and these make me feel feminine and cool. Plus all of Novica’s products are fair trade and aim at empowering women in underdeveloped countries, which obviously rocks.

      Oh they are gorgeous! I have a puzzle jewelry box from Novica. I love their website they do a great job of showcasing their wares from around the world. I would totally look into subscribing if Novica had their own subscription box, especially a home box.
