I believe that healthy and ecological living is super useful for yourself as well as your environment. And today, I have some new products to share with you! JouwBox asked me to receive their Ekoplaza and JouwBox collaboration. Since I have a great experience with as well JouwBox as Ekoplaza, I couldn’t say no. This month the box was filled with goodies and I am super excited to share them with you today.
As mentioned this box is a collaboration between Ekoplaza and JouwBox. By receiving this box you can easily explore biological products. Ekoplaza envisions that the bottom is the foundation of everything. By taking care of the earth, we will receive healthy and tasty products in return.
Enjoy all the products and get inspired with what Ekoplaza has to offer!
.Weleda – Almond softening showercream.
200 ml – €7,99
Weleda offers a mild shower sensation by offering products without synthetic foaming. This product is extremely soft for the skin and therefore very suitable when your skin is sensitive. It respects the natural balance of the skin and tries to support that. The scent of almonds is clean and soft. Of which I am a great fan!
.Your Organic Nature – Seeds cracker mix.
2×18 crackers – €3,59
I love crackers. And I also love baking. A mix like this really fits my needs. A little while ago I even made my own bread! Therefore I am super excited about this mix and I will definitely make them very soon. Cannot wait to eat them.
Ekoplaza and JouwBox did an amazing job by adding this item to the box!
.Botanique – shampoo bar pomegranate.
I use shampoo bars whenever I wash my hair. They work very well and are not so heavy for my curls. This shampoo bar is (next to being plastic-free) free of palm oil! Sometimes shampoo bars contain this ingredient, which is quite bad for the planet. The product looks robust and is 100% natural cosmetics.
Did you know that 1 bar can take you as far as 3 bottles of shampoo?
.Cleo’s – Blossom Love.
18 bags – €3,79
Any other tea lovers out there? I can enjoy a good cappuccino, but I always am in the mood for a cup of tea! Just like the previous boxes, this Ekoplaza and JouwBox edition contains a tea as well!
Flower/green teas are ones I really enjoy throughout the day. This tea from Cleo’s is nice, yet not my favorite. I cannot say why, but there is something in the taste that holds me back a little. A positive factor of the Jasmin is that it helps super well with getting a bit sleepy!
.Artic Blue – pure arctic fish oil.
60 capsules – €12,90
This is a product that I don’t use. For multiple reasons actually. I do not enjoy the scent of fish and I do not use suplements.
There is a positive thing about this fish oil. To make this fish oil, no extra fishes are killed. Arctic Blue has the MSC-certificate for this!
A nice product for the ones using it, for me not my favorite product of the box.
.Innerme – Protein Bar Chocolate.
This protein bar is a great way to snack some chocolate, but still eat a ‘healthy’ snack! And protein bars can help a lot with fulfilling the human daily need for proteins.
Protein bars are eaten a lot before sporting, since the nutrition help with building your muscles. And something else that makes this bar great: it is biological and vegan.
.Chi Natural Life – Aloe Vera Cooling Gel.
Every summer I use a lot of aloe Vera gel. This gel helps cooling down my skin, especially if I accidentally sunburned myself. So, receiving this aloe vera gel in the Ekoplaza and JouwBox box is amazing! My previous one is almost empty.
You can use this gel for all skin types and not only useful after a sunburn. Also using it as an after shave or for irritated skin. It is absolutely a panacea!
.Loveshock – Salted Pecan 80%.
This looks super delicious! I am a big fan of chocolate, chocolate bars, and also pecan nuts. So, this bar is a match made in heaven.
I was a little bit confused since it mentioned ‘Plastic free’. Because it seems as if there is plastic on the inside. But this is not actual plastic like we know it!
So, it is plastic-free, biological, and made from the best raw cacao standards. What do you want more?
.Frankly Juice – Organic Ginger Shot.
Another new thing to try for me: a ginger shot. That is what I like about boxes like these. Being able to test things that you might like but never tried yourself.
I always see a lot of influencers doing ginger shots. I feel like this is still quite much, so I probably will share it with a friend to test it!
Ginger shots are known for ameliorating the immune system. I am very curious!
.Ekoplaza – Arabica quick filter coffee.
I mentioned I like tea, but also a good cup of coffee. And if I choose a kind of coffee I will choose Arabica. During my first job I had to make coffee with Arabica beans, and that is when I started to drink coffee. The name Arabica has some special place in my heart.
These Ekoplaza beans are also fair-trade. And that is something to strive for. More products should be made in a fair and ethical way!
.Dr. Hauschka -Rose Bath.
30 ml – €6,95
In my student home I (of course) do not have a bath, but my parents have one. Therefore I took this product to their place. This way we all can enjoy this rose bath milk.
I was quite surprised that this JouwBox contained bath milk. Maybe also because you don’t hear a lot about these kinds of products anymore since the rise of LUSH bath bombs. But good bath milk is super softening for the skin!
.Dr. Martins – ice coffee, coconut cappuccino.
I have to speak fairly with you. I am a great lover of iced coffee that you can purchase in the supermarket. But this one was not my kind of taste. And that was quite sad, because I was so enthusiastic about it! When pouring this vegan drink into my glass, the scent and color were a bit off. Still I wanted to try it out. But eventually I had to throw it away..
This product was not for me..
.Gkazas – Biological Virgin Olive oil.
40 ml – €2,29
A good olive oil that will also suit amazingly as a present! The looks are amazing and I used it for cooking sometimes already and it is a great oil!
This oil farm is from Crete, where the soil is contained by goats and sheep that walk there freely. Cooking with this oil brings Greece a little bit closer to home. What do I miss that country for holiday! Hopefully soon I am able to go there again!
.Orthica – B12-1000 SR.
90 pieces – €25,50
Unfortunately another product I do not use. And hopefully I can make someone else happy with it.
B12 can be a great addition to your nutrition. These pills are made in such a way that the B12 stays in your body for a longer period of time. A good thing if your body cannot do that itself.
.Chocolat Stella – 80% pure choclate.
100 gr – €3,39
Can I say that this is absolutely my favorite product of this box? I AM IN LOVE! This bar is exactly what I am looking for in an 80% dark chocolate bar. I have to be aware that I do not eat it all at once, but I would feel sorry if I did. A little piece at a time is already lovely since the flavor stays in your mouth for long!
Definitely will purchase this one again! Thank you Ekoplaza and JouwBox for introducing this product to me!
.Vitals – Saffron LCS biological.
90 capsules – €29,95
The most expensive product of the box and one of my least favorites. This is because I do not use supplements, like I mentioned before.
The funny thing is that I did not know Saffron was something that could be in a capsule. It is known that saffron has a positive effect on your mood. And I was surprised by this! Saffron is usually super expensive in the supermarket if you want to use it for dinner or something.
Maybe when feeling down these supplements could work for you to feel a bit better!
.Bee Hones Cosmetics – Hand soap natural.
I already own and use some products of Bee Honest, an I am quite happy with them! Ekoplaza and JouwBox surprised me with this hand soap! How fitting can a product be in a time where we have to wash our hand more than ever.
And this soap is not a harsh soap. It protects the skin and helps in recovering after washing. The beeswax is super mild and works extremely well for sensitive or irritated skin.
.Thoughts and conclusions on the Ekoplaza and JouwBox collaboration.
I have some mixed feelings about this box. There are some products that I absolutely love, but also some products that are not my taste. For example, the vitamins that I don’t use feel like a bit of a waste. Hopefully, there is someone that I could make happy with those products. Overall, I really enjoyed the exploration of all these new products that are good for yourself and good for the environment. That is definitely a reason why I like the JouwBox! Although this box was less my fit, I also wrote about an earlier box with more products of my taste!
