Umba Box Review October 2013 + Coupon Code!

I got another opportunity to receive an Umba Box, (thank you Umba!), and boy am I glad I did! The box wasn’t themed, but it fit in perfectly with the season and featured 2 products from a 2 great handmade designers. A lot of people like to think of Umba as an ‘Etsy Subscription Box’, and I think it’s an amazing way to discover smaller businesses!

I absolutely love how Umba Box has such detailed and personal information cards on the products and designers. I even know what they look like lol!

‘Pumpkin Spice’ Whipped Sugar Soap by Noon Designs (Value $18):
Um, this smells AMAZING! Like, to die for. Talk about getting into the holiday season! I checked out Noon Designs website and they also have ‘winter holiday’ scents, they all look so delicious! This would be an amazing gift for someone, I even love the labels! Can I eat this? lol jk!

Super whipped! The texture of this soap is very gritty and great for exfoliation with all the sugar, along with some lather.
Sweet Nature Designs Cotton Drawstring Bag (Value $11):
Such a simple handmade momento, great for little gifts or to hold nicknacks such as stationary or makeup. The bike isn’t my exact cup of tea, but I’m going to of course find a use for it, it’s a nice spacious size! Sweet Nature Designs also makes particularly cute towels, pillow cases covers, etc.
Final Thoughts: I loved this month’s Umba Box as the soap was such a great hit for me! The bag is also very practical, and I loved discovering these 2 designers. I love that this box introduced me to 2 awesome businesses that I probably wouldn’t have found otherwise; personally I really enjoy smaller ‘Etsy’ type of businesses!
