Subscription Addiction!! Wholly Hemp

Subscription Queen

Wholly Hemp is such a an amazingly good subscription.  According to their Social Mission, “25% of profits go to developmental microloans….to women in developing countries.”  As of RIGHT NOW, they have benefited 1,495 people by providing 299 loans.  That’s huge!

I just received an email today…well yesterday if we’re being technical…that said the following:

” As a member of 1% For The Planet we have vowed to contribute 1% of our sales to environmental causes and organizations. Since you make Wholly Hemp possible, you decide the cause we support each month. This month 1% of our sales will go to help protect 100 miles of the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest.”

I don’t know about you, but I am not aware of a ton of companies that offer monthly subscription boxes and that actually work hard to help not just people in developing countries, but the environment as well.  It makes me proud to be a subscriber!

You want your mind to be even MORE blown away?  The email also said this:

“Our facility is powered by 100% renewable wind power, which means all your favorite products, our website, and even the computer used to write this very email, are all powered by 100% sustainably-sourced wind energy. Last month alone, our use of wind energy saved the equivalent of 600 miles of greenhouse gas emissions.”

Really?  So not only are you just helping the environment and women in developing countries, but you’re actually practicing what you preach??  Mind.  Blown.

Moving forward.  Wholly Hemp offers three different plans for their subscription services.  For $10 a month and free shipping, you receive 2 items per month.  For $20 a month and free shipping, you receive 4 items per month.  And for $40 a month and free shipping, you receive 8 items per month.  How I wish I could afford the $40 a month one.  I love these products.  I currently subscribe to the $10 a month one and the following is what I received for August:

Bodacious Bergamot Soothing Soap — It says on the package:  “Let the sweet and spicy aroma of bergamot take you away to a world of tropical bliss.  With a touch of tangy lemon and sweet orange, this soap smells just like a citrus smoothie (although it probably doesn’t taste the same…we don’t suggest you find out).  To use as shampoo, lather and apply to hair, then rinse.”  It contains saponified hemp-coconut-palm-sunflower oil, bergamot oil- and rosemary extract.  It is NOT tested on animals!

I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin and all of the soaps I have received from Wholly Hemp have helped soothe my poor skin and have helped cut down on itching, bumps, and redness.  And they smell great!

Peppermint Lip Balm – Ingredients:  coconut oil, beeswax, hemp seed oil, sunflower oil, vitamin E, peppermint oil, and rosemary extract.  It’s Lanolin free and NOT tested on animals!

This stuff is AMAZING!  It is so soothing on my lips and feels tingly because of the peppermint.  Someone asked me if it tasted funky because of the hemp seed oil and I can say with a rousing NO WAY DUDE!  This stuff tastes great.

Subscription Addictions – e.l.f. Beauty Bundle & Wholly Hemp

Subscription Queen

I haven’t been on here in ages it would seem.  Oh well….no better time to start all over than now, right?  Other than my last post, this blog is going to focus a lot on the subscriptions I belong to.  Monthly subscription boxes seem to be growing and growing in popularity and, of course, I got in on the action.  In fact, the greatest thing in my life is when the mail truck arrives because I never know what I’m going to receive between the subscription boxes and things I’ve “bought” on Listia.  (More on Listia another time.)

So far I belong to:  Beauty Joy, Boxy Charm, Dollar Shave, e.l.f., ipsy, Kawaii Box, and Wholly Hemp.  Today I’m going to talk about e.l.f.’s beauty bundle and Wholly Hemp’s boxes.

e.l.f. (eyes lips & face) offers Beauty Bundle Gift Plans that range from $59.97-$119.94 (for a half a year or a full year plan) plus shipping costs, Beauty Bundle Subscription Plans that are $19.99 plus shipping costs, and Past Beauty Bundles that are $23.99 plus shipping costs.  It should be noted that the bundles are charged for and arrive bi-monthly.  So, for the subscription plan, it’s a total of $24.94 and you’re guaranteed to receive over $40 worth of products in your bundle.

Everything adds up to a retail value of $44.00 which is $19.06 above what I paid.  And I know some people are like, “O.M.G….(because people who are snobby about makeup say it just like that, right?) you use e.l.f.?  You can get it at Target!  It’s not exactly high end you know…”  That doesn’t matter!  e.l.f. is a GREAT brand and their products speak for themselves — you just have to try them out for yourselves.

Next is Wholly Hemp.  With Wholly Hemp you actually get out what you put in.  They have the $10 subscription where you get 2 products each month (this is the one I belong to), the $20 subscription where you get 4 products each month, and the $40 subscription where you get 8 products each month.  They are a great company.  Definitely read about them here even if you’re unsure about subscribing to them.  From their site, “25% of the profit from every item goes directly to individuals in developing countries to help lift them out of poverty. Additionally, 1% of our revenue is contributed toward environmental and sustainability-related causes and organizations.”  How can you beat that?  You can’t — and their products are AWESOME.  This month I received…
