What makes our box even more special is that we focus on lifting up women. We work to discover new woman run companies each month to introduce you to that are creating fabulous products that you’ll love and want to share. We promote women helping women to succeed not only by sourcing all of our products from women, we also include a monthly “Lift Up” card in each box with ideas on how to give another woman in your life a boost and we donate 10% of our proceeds to a woman-focused charity each month. We believe in the power of women supporting women. We will all be stronger if we work together. 

How it Works

The retail value of the products included in the box will always be more that what you paid for the box – often up to 50% more

Woman Up Box Petite Subscription: Including 6-8 female made items, starting at $49.95, you can choose to pay monthly, or purchase a 6 or 12 month membership for a discounted rate.

The Box

I like the concept of a box that helps ‘lift up’ women and includes products made by women. I feel it’s really important to instill a sense of empowerment and courage in girls at a really young age.

The theme of the June 2017 box is ‘Don’t Worry, Be Happy’. The monthly Life Up Card is meant to help to lift women up and illustrate women lifting each other up literally to inspire others to do so figuratively as well. Woman Up Box always features a couple of fun Lift Up photos on their website and they select one each month to grace one side of the Lift Up Card. If you have one to share you can send it to photos@womanupbox.com. If they select your photo to appear on a monthly Lift Up Card, you will receive a free Woman Up Box!

Lollyphile Pomegranate Tangerine & Strawberry Mojito: 4/ $8.00 USD

We believe that candy can be every bit as much a gastronomical adventure as a fancy dinner, and we want to see just how far we can go. We want to make you remember exactly why you threw fits when your parents wouldn’t buy you candy, and then we’d like to gently remind you that you’re perfectly able to buy your own candy now. Good thing you saved your allowance, yeah?

There’s nothing like homemade, old-fashioned lollipops with elaborate and delicious flavours!

Mandala Beaded Necklace: $24.00

I can picture myself wearing this necklace on a beach in a tropical destination somewhere, or paired with a nice long dress on a summer day. This necklace doesn’t match my usual daily attire but it’s definitely a fun accessory for parties or vacations!

Passion Moon Potions Wild Blackberries Lip Tint

You can never go wrong with including homemade lip balm in a subscription box! This wild blackberry lip tint is complete with hints of purple and is made in small batches in Hawaii.

Green Parrot Worrystone

The idea behind this worrystone is to carry it with you or rub it between your hands to bring you fortune and good luck. I have never received one of these so this will be a new experience for me!

Mandala Cards by Anna Gaiownik

I actually love the concept of getting handmade cards in subscription boxes, they are so much more personal than buying a card at the store and the great concept of these cards is you can personalize and colour them yourself depending on the recipient!

Purse Mirror by Kate Kehoe

I love this mini purse mirror with a motivational quote on the front!

Feeling Smitten Strawberry Mint Gelato Sugar Scrub: $15.50

This 6 ounce smooth foaming sugar whipped scrub is packed with naturally moisturizing, nourishing Mango Butter, Shea Butter and natural oils that exfoliate, cleanse and hydrate all in one. This scrub is perfect for the shower or tub and sweetened with strawberry mint fragrance!

If you know me, you know that I LOVE my sugar scrubs. I think this package is a really cute idea- it reminds me of being at an old-fashioned ice cream shop. The little wooden spoon is a nice touch as well, it’s a different way to apply the scrub and actually is quite practical as you don’t have to touch the scrub and therefore avoid getting bacteria from your hands into the scrub jar!

Flying bird Botanicals Lemon Mint Mate Tea Blend: $9.75

Refreshing lemon + mint with pure Brazilian Yerba Maté. Great hot and iced.

Yeeeeesssss, tea is a staple for me in subscription boxes. I am obsessed with tea, and I live for finding exotic tea blends that taste delicious! I actually just tried Yerba Mate for the first time and thought it was delicious. Combined with mint and lemon, this tea is a force to be reckoned with!

Final Thoughts

I am so happy to be supporting a subscription box that is made by women and contains such a great variety of handmade items from female artisans. This is the company’s first box and is quite impressive for having just released.  The product card was very informative and I love that the company does the ‘lift up’ photos to try and support women lifting up one another. To me, this seems like a very motivational and purposeful subscription box.
