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…


Herbivore Coco Rose (From an 2018 LE How to Hygge Birchbox)

This is a dry body scrub. That is there is hardly any oily surface inside the jar. And it looks so fancy. It is so moisturizing for being dry. I put it on a subscription box plate thinge and use it as a hand scrub in the main bathroom. I have a little wood spoon that I believe came with a mystery natural subscription box that I put on top of the lid to be a little fancy.

Hand In Hand Sugar Scrubs (From FabFitFun’s Summer 2018 Add On Sale)

I am using the Orange one now and saving the Lavender for later (there is a metal seal). The scent reminds me of Orange Pekoe Tea (Black Tea scented with Oranges). I can see this leaking because when I took off the metal seal some oil oozed out. I will not repurchase again because of that. A similar product in a tube but not crunchy is Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Hand Scrub which smells like a heavenly ocean and does not drip/ooze out.

Cocoage Cocoa Powder 24k (From FabFitFun’s Summer 2018 Add On Sale)

$1 an ounce for a 9.5 ounce almost $$ retail body scrub yes please! What a bargain! I would repurchase again for the $9 price but I can not understand why people would pay almost $$ for this! I put this under the kitchen sink as a hand scrub. It smelled amazing (think of an over sugared hot chocolate in a yummy smelly way but not nommy way). Even though the scrub looks visually amazing, I am not seeing any gold residue after I wash my hands of this but it is so sparkly!

Lalicious Body Scrub in Sugar Cookie (From PopSugar December 2017)

I have at least one more use of this. I keep savoring it and using it for special occasions. I am not really a sugar cookie fan as I prefer chocolate, however, I will fall hard for a soft nommy sugar cookie that melts in my mouth. This smells like a soft nommy sugar cookie that would melt in one’s mouth. I have this in the bathtub for its actual use as a body scrub.


And you know what else scrubs are good for?

      Thanks Hope 🙂 Actually I am pretty much an introvert and like to stay at home. I love my subscription boxes and this is a way I get to share not much of my friends and family are obsessed as I am over it. And I love our Subscriptionista community 🙂 Speaking of, thank you so much for making your first comment on here I love it when I see new peeps 🙂

    Omg omg, congratulations! I’m so excited for you! I wondered what the major squeaker announcement was, but I had forgotten about it by the time I got to it. Well played!

    Boys are fun! Little bow ties and suspenders. Are the squeakers excited about getting a baby brother?

      Thank you LC!
      We were shocked to find out that we could ever have a boy we were expecting a girl but we recovered quickly. The squeakers are looking forward to spoiling him like they already do with Squeaka, the weeist of the sisters.
