Kloverbox Eco-friendly sub box [Spoilers]

Recommended Posts

for those who were interested in the update of my big boy cat, I've got some info - i posted it in spoilers, so not to bore anyone who isn't interested

 

 

 

his blood work came back excellent for a 14 1/2 year old cat - with the exception of a couple of items

 

his BUN (blood urea nitrogen ) is slightly high - the high level for a cat is 30 and his is 34.  Plus his creatinine level is at the highest acceptable level for cats 2.5  what this means is that his kidneys are not working as good as they should.   For older cats, renal failure is very common and there isn't any cure for kidney disease in cats.   However, he is going on a lower protein diet with hills renal cat food and hopefully, that will help slow down the progression of kidney disease. 

 

My vet seems very optimistic, as Obi has a healthy appetite(heck, he has to loose weight - I though he was 17 pounds - 15 is his normal weight - and he clocked in at 21 pounds!!  I am such a bad mom-cat....), is still active and doesn't vomit or have the other signs of acute renal failure - with his levels, his disease just started.  

 

He also needed to do a urine sample - it was kinda funny - they gave me a handful of these clear crystal litter beads and said to line his litter box with this (not other type of litter allowed) and have him use that - I had to lock him in my bedroom for 4 days - and he refused to go in the box with a little handful of clear beads in it - he didn't pee outside of the box because he has been trained so well, but held it all day long :(  poor baby.  I finally asked them to give me some more of the crystal litter and they did and today, he only was in the bedroom for a couple of hours and he peed! Good boy!  The urine sample will also help to determine how far along he is.  

 

I am sad that his kidneys are slowing going downhill, but like my vet said, it is one of the top common diseases in cats and causes of death.   It can be slowed down and my vet thinks Obi , so long it is kept under control, can live several more comfortable years :)   He isn't happy about his diet either.   He is getting more frisky with me and wanting food, but I do have to slowly cut back on things.  His arthritis isn't being helped with those extra pounds - I would like to get him down to 15 pounds again, but it has to be slow, as when cats loose weight too fast, it can damage their liver.

It's KloverBox One Year Anniversary!!! Even though they started shipping until July they consider March their one year anniversary. Something special is planned.

 

Any ideas? It says on Facebook that Facebook fans will be the first to know.

 

@@biancardi I'm glad that your cat is doing well.

Just got an email shipping notification last night! I can't wait for my first box.

 

My mom just came to visit (I got her a three month sub at Christmas and have been ogling her boxes since) and she gave me the Rose shampoo and conditioner as it wasn't right for her hair type, and the little barn face oil and I love both!

 

I can't wait to see what the special March surprise will be!

This will be my first month with this sub. MissJexie's review signed me up a few weeks ago. So excited, it looks great! The funny thing is that I didn't actually remember signing up til I got my shipping email earlier, lol! Middle of the night reading of reviews leads to insomniac-sleep buying! Haha, I'm sticking to that-I'm defenseless really! That and boxycharm-got my shipping notification and I was like, huh? I signed up for this?? Now I have eleventy billion subs!

I'm like this. I get shipping notifications and I'm like "really?? I forgot I had signed up for this" :D or sometimes I miss the notification and a package shows up.

hahah I used to be like that too and I was finally like, 'omg ok I have to get control of this' lol. So now as soon as I order something, I add it to my list of "expected packages" that I keep in a word document and delete them as they show up. That way I know exactly what I'm waiting for and what I'm expecting! With so many sub boxes coming in all the time it's easy to lose track!

ooh I like that idea of organizing it all on a word doc! I'm trying to organize it in a mail folders now to try and keep track. I was so good during no buy and it was so nice because I knew I didn't have anything coming with the exception of only a few boxes. Made it so much less chaotic/stressful and better on the wallet. Maybe I need to cut back again and get reorganized. :)

I move all my tracking emails into the "tracking" folder which I delete once I receive my box. I also keep everything in an Excel spreadsheet.

 

No spoilers???? I was away from the computer all day and was hoping to see spoilers!

My box arrived! Sadly I do not have time to post pictures because this is one of the days I run my sister around to her appointments. I dropped my sister off to her first appointment,, drove home to meet the mailman who was on time despite the rain, and now need to go back and pick her up and take her to other places. Does this mean I have a sub addiction?
 
I'll post pictures later in the day if no one does. I'm happy with my box.

 

I don't think the anniversary surprise has to do with the contents of the box.
 
First Impressions - I'm partly Irish and love that the thank you  has a clover sticker
 

BAGGU Small 3D Zip Bag in Mint Stripe $8.00 - I love green and been wanting a BAGGU bag! This is the perfect size for traveling. I will be using it next week when traveling.
 
Urban Oreganics Rosewater Toner - 4 oz- FS - I couldn't smell a scent. I can't use it because it has witch hazel. Rosacea is a pain :(  My sister will love it. She isn't able to buy any subs right now so I know she will enjoy this.
 
Marley's Monster Reusable Facial Rounds (4) $2.40 -  This can be used with the toner and there are care directions on the card. Love it!
 
White & Elm Pomegranate Renewing Eye Serum - .35 oz - FS - $18.00 - I can use this!
 
:luv: Pelle Beauty Luxe Beauty Balm :luv:  - 4 ml - DS - $9.00. - I love Pelle Beauty and love, love, love their balm. I'm excited to see a 20% off code. I need to place a decent size order!!!
 
Jillian Wright Skincare Double Surface Exfoliater - 3.7 ml - DS- $8.00- So far I have been able to use all Jillian Wright products that I received in boxes. I need to look up a couple ingredients to see if I can use it. I have rosacea which is why I need to be conscious of ingredients.

 

 

Edited because 4 oz and 4 ml is a big difference.

@@PA Anna  sounds like a nice box - I can't use the same item you can't use for different reasons.  and I cannot use the one you are loving the most in here...sigh....two boxes in a row with

rose stuff.

  I am a bit sad though

 

 

I  really want them to go back and offer more than just cosmetics here....it looks like they are turning into a beauty box instead of a lifestyle one  - if this rose trend and lack of lifestyle items continue, I won't be renewing my subscription with them.

I was very pleased with this month's box as always! I do agree though-I really want to see more of the lifestyle products and less beauty-based things. I understand that it's much easier to get your hands one beauty products for subscriptions, but my favorite items have always been the bags, candle, laundry powder etc. 

 

having said that, I really like everything this month- the eye serum is divine!

This was my first box and I love it! I've already tried almost everything.

 

I agree, although I love the beauty brands, I would like some home/lifestyle stuff too. I would like to sub to Goodebox (so far I've only bought a couple of special editions) but right now it feels too duplicative.

@Miccarty2I have a Goodboxe sub and enjoy it. The survey is in depth which is great for me. They will never ever send me an eye product which is wonderful!

 

Back to Kloverbox. I wonder what the something special is being planned for this month? It was enjoyable to receive the box early in the month.

 

 

I can't use the Jillian Wright product because it has witch hazel in it. :( It's a shame because I do like the other Jillian Wright products that I am using. My sister will be happy because she was eyeing it up when I opened up the box. It's been a very long day with her :(

I really like this box, I wasn't so sure about the Pelle Beauty balm, but omg, my face loves it and is so soft and moisturized! I have combo/oily skin but it doesn't cause me any problems. Between the exfoliator and this balm I can't stop touching my face, lol. It's not like it was neglected with my billion step Korean routine either! Really happy with my first box, and those little flannel squares would be so easy to make, I'm gonna sew up a batch and ditch my cotton rounds. Don't know why I didn't think of that.

IT'S HERE!! Haven't tried anything yet, but the personalized note was really special.  Great curation.  Last year, I rec'd the Pelle Luxe oil in a sub and saw immediate results.  Pelle is very high on my list of sub box loves, so I can't wait to try the balm.  Baggu is so cool - I love everything they do.  The 3-D is not what I would have picked, but I REALLY like it.  Bigger than expected with no added weight to my luggage.  The little flannels are adorable.  Makes me think of that song "a flannel for my face"  I'm going to order a stack and stop using cotton rounds--why didn't I think of this sooner? Perfect timing on the toner--just ran out and wanted something new.  Always on the hunt for miracle eye products (and curly hair stuff, too--but that's a post for another day).   Now I have to stop writing so I can exfoliate & have a "spa" night at home.  YAY Kloverbox!

Mine arrived today as well! Love everything about this box. I'm so looking forward to using the flannels and the toner. The flannels are a great idea. I just love the whole box. Looking forward to trying all the products in it. Double thumbs up! It was so nice to get this box on the same day with Popsugar which was such a let down. At least one great box today. :)

I really loved this box too! I've been testing everything over the past couple of days so I can write my review and I'm really pleased with everything included! I still would love to see more lifestyle products in future boxes, but the beauty items included this month were just fantastic! I loved the flannel cotton pad idea too- I was thinking of making my own but they're pretty inexpensive to buy with the coupon code this month so I might just grab some extras!

I was thinking about grabbing a few extras too with the coupon. I like making things but not enough time in the day. I like the quality of the ones in the box. Feels really nice.
