The Homegrown Collective, who kindly sent me this box to review, includes seasonally appropriate, professionally curated products that deliver the satisfaction of living a more self-sufficient & sustainable lifestyle to your doorstep each month.
The Homegrown Collective ships via USPS Priority Mail. I received this box just before the 4th of July (boxes always ship towards the end of the month) and have been wanting to work on it ever since. I took it up-north over the holiday week and didn’t get a chance and then every time I planned to work on it at home the day just got the best of me and time ran out. Since I am not sure when I will get a chance to finish the projects I decided to go ahead and write the review anyway!
I hadn’t a gotten a look at any spoilers yet so I didn’t know what we would be making here. I thought it might be sunscreen related, but beyond that I was clueless.
The June 2014 Homegrown Collective theme was “Summer Time… & The Livin’s…” and included the following projects:
~After-Sun Aloe Lotion Bars: These bars work as a great “after-sun” lotion and according to the card help to hydrate your skin. I was thinking about keeping one or two in the fridge to really cool after a long day outside.
~All Natural Insect Repellant: Love this! The bugs aren’t so bad in my backyard, but up-north they are crazy awful. This buy spray has no chemicals like a lot of the store bought sprays do, which is awesome. This mixture is suppose to be mixed with equal parts water and I should note that they included a storage bottle, as well as, a spray bottle do you don’t have to worry about what to do wit the undiluted mixture.
~All Natural Organic Sunscreen: Sunscreen is like our number one summer essential for the kids and it’s not really something I was even aware you could make it home. That’s obviously what Homegrown Collective is for! I also didn’t know that the differences SPF numbers on sunscreen were so small. SPF 100 blocks 99% of the suns rays, SPF 50 blocks 98%, SPF 30 blocks 96.7%,etc. Who knew?
