Sparaj is a new spa and wellness subscription box that focuses on craft artisan goods from Asia. Unlike a typical subscription service, there is no recurring billing. Instead you buy each box individually and have the option for prepaying for months. I love discovering artisan goods from new areas, so I was thrilled to be offered one of their pre-launch boxes to review.
The Cost: $40 per box, you can prepay for 3, 6 or 12 month subscription and save
The Coupon: Use code MAVEN5 for $5 off your first box! Expires November 30th
The Products: Sparaj box focuses on natural products from artisans across Asia. Ingredients are locally-sourced across Asia and are targeted toward wellness and sustainability. Their aim is to showcase the lessor known talents in Asia and breakdown stereotypes of the area only creating generic and mass-products products.
Breathe Mini Dew Drop Diffuser – Value $8
I think this diffuser is so adorable. I love that the flower changes its color after a few days after it’s begun to absorb the oils. It has a wonderful Plumeria scent that fills up the room without being overbearing.
Harnn Cymbopogon Body Care – Value $25
This body wash and moisturizer set has an addictive lemongrass scent that I absolutely love! I think this is one of my favorite products in the box because of the scent alone!
Serevana Jasmine Natural Soap – Value $5
The ingredients for this soap is Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Rice Barn Oil and Jasmine Essential Oil. I love that all the ingredients are easily recognizable and well-known. The soap is ultra-moisturizing with a delicate scent.
Siam Botanicals Organic Facial Kit – Value $11
This kit includes : Rosehip & Tea Tree Cleanser, Organic Coconut Sugar & Honey Face Polish, Rosewater Toning Mist and Replenish Face Serum. I love that all the ingredients are all-natural and sourced locally from the production area around Southeast Asia, Africa and India. The presentation of the kit is also really cute!
Asia Herb Association Plai Herbal Hot Ball – Value $9
My box did not come with an information card, so I was not sure what this was at first. Upon closer inspection, I realized you heat it up and use it to relieve stiffness and soreness. The smell is reminiscent of Vapor Rub to me. I woke up with a crick in my neck this morning and used it for 20 minutes while eating breakfast with my daughter and it really did help!
Thoughts: Opening my box was a true sensory delight. I do not think Sparaj could have created a more perfect first box. This is a great gift box for yourself or someone you know. What I truly love is that you are not able to find any of these products in the American market, and most of these companies do not even ship to America at this time. (Sparaj did note they were planning on selling these items in their shop in the future). I cannot wait to see what future boxes hold.
