The Bronx Naturals Spa Box: My Experience

The contents of the The Bronx Naturals Spa Box I received

Soy Candle (9 oz) – Velvet Rose Scent

Description: Burn time approx. 60 hrs. Can be used as massage oil when wax turns to liquid

My Thoughts: Ahhh…this velvet rose scent candle was my absolute favorite from the box! I love candles that give off a great scent while burning and this one did not disappoint! It gives off a warm, rich rose scent that is extremely calming. Just what you want for your spa day!

Rose Bath Tea (2.50 oz)

Description: (2) 2.5 oz bath tea soaks filled with rose floral notes. Add one bath tea soak to a tub filled with warm water and enjoy the relaxing aroma. Do not open tea bag!

My Thoughts: This was my first time doing a rose bath tea and I can say that I’m already looking forward to taking another one. Soaking in a bath filled with real rose petals took my home spa day to the next level! The natural scent from the rose bath tea is very light, but still adds to the overall calming aroma.

Lotion bar (3 oz)

Description: Lock in your moisture with our mango butter, almond oil, beeswax and lavender essential oil lotion bar. Simply unscrew the lid and rub a small amount of our highly moisturizing lotion bar on your body. The easy to use container is great for travel and on the go.

My Thoughts: The ingredients in this lotion bar are perfect for sealing in moisture after such a relaxing soak. I found it easier to rub the bar in my hand first and then apply to my body instead of gliding all over with the bar. It’s a non-greasy formula and I like the on-the-go packaging.

Reviewing this box was certainly a treat for me and if you’re looking to have your own spa day at home, I encourage you to check out The Bronx Naturals Spa box for yourself!
