SUBSCRIPTION BOX REVIEW- Extraordinary Man Box *Summer 2018*

I saw a funny picture the other day that showed one person complaining about the heat and another person saying "shut up...we just had 8 months of winter!!" I don't know about you, but I'm ready for the heat and the summer 2018 Extraordinary Man Box is bringing the fire this summer. In case you missed my last review, the Extraordinary Man Box is great for getting some seasonal goodies to try and is perfect if you like a little seasonal lifestyle refresh. 

In the box:

Stoüt Face Care daily SPF cream
Haupy's beaver rub seasoning 
Scentuals facial toner
Walter's Shoe Care outsole scrub
Stripped Wax Bar deodorizing spray
Avventura lightweight hammock 

My favourite item would be the Avventura hammock (because's a freaking compact hammock that you can take just about anywhere.) This box is valued at $147 CAD and is a great deal if you're looking for some useful summatime items to add to your collection. There were only 6 items in the summer 2018 box but has a greater value than the last box. I'm really impressed! 

More about the products inside:

Stoüt Face Care daily SPF cream- This cream is a must have if you're going to be outdoors this summer. If you've been a long time reader, you know how much I love skin care products so my inner skin care nerd was giddy when I saw this cream. Not only did this product smell great, its packed with skin loving ingredients like Evening Primrose Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Shea Butter and Jojoba oil. I was surprised to learn that the formula contains Zinc Oxide 9.8% which makes for a "safer" sunscreen since it's a non-toxic way to protect the skin. It absorbed quickly and left almost no residue. There are two sizes available and subscribers to the EMB got the larger size so you'll be protected from the sun for a loonggggg time :)

Haupy's beaver rub seasoning- A first sniff I was sure that this rub was going to be delicious, and of course, what better way to celebrate the upcoming Canada Day holiday than with a beaver rub right?! This rub can be used on all sorts of meats and is surprisingly 100% vegetarian.  It's also MSG free and low in sodium so you can feel good using this on meats, seafood, veggies, marinades and all sorts of food that might benefit from a little seasoning. 

Scentuals facial toner- I love products that are handcrafted because I know it's more likely to have been made with care. That's why I love the Scentuals brand. This toner balances skin's pH while rejuvenating, soothing and purifying the skin. It's alcohol free so it's gentle enough to be used throughout the day. Of course I had to try this toner on myself and even though its formulated for men, it's gentle enough for my skin. 

Walter's Shoe Care outsole scrub- Usually we stay away from white shoes because you know...white shoes don't stay white for long!! I love that the summer EMB featured a wide range of lifestyle items and including an item for shoes was a nice touch. This outsole scrub has a brush applicator for mess free cleaning. We loooove! 

Stripped Wax Bar deodorizing spray- This spray is quite nice and refreshing to use. It's got a barely there scent and left the skin feeling moisturized. Since it's deodorizing, I tested it under my arms and worked really well as an under arm spray. This would be great to have as a mid day pick me up and would be perfect for leaving in the car or your office. 

Avventura lightweight hammock- I was really surprised with how light yet durable this hammock is. We love going camping in the summer and it's nice to have a hammock that folds neatly so it doesn't take up too much room in our bags. There are durable ties and carabiners attached so you can use this almost anywhere. We are looking forward to using this on many adventures this summer. 

I'm very pleased with this box and would recommend getting the subscription for any special guy that might need a little lifestyle update. Don't miss out on this great box!
