Review // Sunny's Body Products Winter 2015 Box

Hi loves! Today I am sharing the latest Sunny's Body Products seasonal box with you. Because Sanaz (the owner of SBP) was so busy with school and everything, she decided to create a Winter box instead of a specifically Christmas themed one. Unfortunately with the holidays and all it took the box AGES to arrive here (it was literally stuck for 10 days in California before moving on), but it seems there are still a few boxes left so this review might be useful in the end ;-).

There are 10 beautiful products included in this box, and I'll tell you a little something about them all below!

Sunny's Body Products Hand Sugar Scrub "It's a Wonderful Life" (1 oz) smells like mulled citrus and fruit followed by cinnamon, cloves, and crunchy snickerdoodle cookies with top notes of fresh-cut Christmas trees: Douglas fir, blue spruce, and cedar. I can definitely pick out that "musky" scent of the cinnamon and cloves, but it's fresh at the same time because of the pine trees. 

The sugar scrub is one of my favorite products from Sunny's as you'll only need a little bit to scrub your hands, and afterwards they feel so soft and smooth!

Ingredients: Shea butter, coconut oil, sugar, purified water, avocado oil, sweet almond oil, fragrance oil.

Sunny's Body Products Hand Butter "Snowflakes" (1 oz) has a combination of mints, aquatics and camphors. It smells so fresh, light and crisp, just like when you step outside into a fresh pack of snow and the way the air tingles inside your nose because it's so cold!

If you need a heavy duty moisturizer for your hands (or feet, elbows or knees) the hand butter is your best choice. I like to rub some on my hands and feet and cover them with socks and cotton gloves to let it sink in.

Ingredients: Shea butter, coconut oil, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil, vitamin E oil, tapioca powder, grapefruit seed oil, fragrance oil.

Sunny's Body Products On The Go Hand Lotion "Let It Snow" (1 oz) smells like fresh clean, frosty air, with hints of lemon leaf and tangerine zest, petit grain, traces of jasmine petals, secret santa spices, prussian cypress, oak moss and precious woods. To me it's a bit of an air freshener smell, not too bad but a bit artificial? Very fresh though, which is nice.

The On The Go hand lotion is the perfect daily moisturizer for your hands. It's a lightweight formula that sinks in quickly but hydrates well, and the small tube is easy to throw in your purse. 

Ingredients: Distilled water, sunflower oil, soya oil, vegetable glycerin, stearic acid, cetyl alcohol, emulsifying wax, palmitic acid, vitamin E, potassium sorbate, meadowfoam oil, jojoba oil, aloe vera oil, vitamin C oil, citric acid, germall plus, fragrance oil.

Sunny's Body Products Cuticle Oil "Baby It's Cold Outside" (10 ml.) smells like mandarin, green clover, fir needle, sparkling spruce, cardamom and cedar bark with bottom notes of guaiac wood, precious woods and allspice. It's a comforting scent, not too overpowering and fresh because of the mandarin, which I always love in a scent.

The cuticle oil is great for everyday use, because of the roller ball it applies easy and without a mess, and the product sinks in quickly while hydrating very well.

Ingredients: Sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, vitamin E oil, fragrance oil.

Sunny's Body Products Intensive Cuticle Therapy "Winter Wishes" (15 ml.) is a cheerful blend of fresh mint, blooming jasmine and pine needles. The blooming jasmine really stands out in this one, and it creates an airy and sunny scent because of it. 

If you are ready for some extra cuticle love, this is the perfect product to use. When I use the hand butter, usually I'll apply a bit of this cuticle oil first, that way both my hands and cuticles can soak up all the oils they need!

Ingredients: Argan oil, coconut oil, flax seed oil, apricot kernel oil, hazelnut oil, rosehip seed oil, fragrance oil.

Sunny's Body Products Miracle Balm "All Bundled Up" (0.50 oz) has fruity and woody opening containing sparkling grapefruit, citron, and juniper berries followed by a middle note of wild ivy and finishing with a touch of warm white musk, cedar, and balsam. Again, a very comforting scent that makes me want to grab a blanket and a cup of tea and just cocoon on the couch!

The miracle balm is exactly that, you can use this all over your body (except using it as a lip balm) and it'll work wonders for any dry patches! Because of the biotin and garlic it's exceptionally great as a cuticle balm.

Ingredients: Shea butter, beeswax, candelilla wax, jojoba oil, coconut oil, biotin, garlic, vitamin E, fragrance oil.

Sunny's Body Products All-Over Body Balm "Winter Cabin" (0.15 oz) has notes of fresh, fruity green apple, honey, cinnamon bark, nuts, creamy caramel, maple sugar, cider spice, and warm French vanilla. A lot of food smells in this particular scent, and that's what I notice as well. It creates a warm, toasty scent that has a little bit of tang because of the green apple.

The all-over body balm is another miracle products, it comes in stick form and is therefore a bit easier to use on dry patches in comparison to the miracle balm.

Ingredients: Coconot oil, bees wax, organic shea butter, organic cocoa butter, vitamin E, fragrance oil.

Sunny's Body Products Lip Saver "Peppermint Mocha" (0.15 oz) is  a delightful blend of mocha coffee with fresh peppermint. The peppermint creates a bit of tingle on your lips, and it really does taste like mocha coffee with peppermint! A combination I usually don't like (not a fin of mint in anything actually) but on the lips it's very refreshing.

The lip saver is a lip balm that is long lasting and nicely hydrating, I use it all the time and really like it. It isn't sticky but doesn't wear off quickly either!

Ingredients: Shea butter, lanolin oil, argan oil, hemp seed oil, castor seed oil, cocoa butter, olive fruit oil, soybean lipids, coconut oil, beeswax, stevia, flavor oil.

Sunny's Body Products Bath Whip "Snow Kissed" (1 oz) is a unique blend of hints of lemon, orange, cedar wood and pine all nestled in a warm, rich vanilla cookie base. The vanilla base is quite overpowering here which is a bit of a shame to me, since I love my scents to be fresh and tangy. But if you do love vanilla, this is the scent for you!

When using the bath whip, scoop out a bit using the plastic spoon included in your order, and rub it into a loofah. This'll provide you with a silky smooth foam that's so luxurious! It does leave my skin a bit squeaky clean, but doesn't irritate it which is rare for me.

Ingredients: Glycerin, Water, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, sorbitol, propylene glycol, disodium lauryl sulfosoccinate, stearic acid, sodium chloride, optiphen plus, fragrance oil.

Sunny's Body Products Triple Thick Body Cream "Sleigh Rides" (1 oz) a scrumptious, nutty fruity marzipan and berry type with top notes of almond, nutmeg, coconut milk and wild berries. Middle notes of cinnamon and clove, with a super sweet, sugary vanilla and Tonka bean base with tiny hints of sandalwood. Sooo sweet! I love the marzipan here, I actually love almond a lot, and the cinnamon and clove keep it from being too sugary sweet. 

The triple thick body cream is a lovely body moisturizer that hydrates well and again, doesn't irritate my skin which is rare for me.

Ingredients: Water, rice bran oil, BTMS-50, avocado oil, coconut oil, sunflower oil, vegetable glycerin, emulsifying wax, palmitic acid, potassium sorbate, meadowfoam oil, jojoba oil, vitamin E oil fragrance oil. 

Overall conclusion
While this might be a repetition of earlier reviews, I just really really like the products Sanaz releases with these limited edition boxes. The scents are always unique and lovely, and the quality of each product is perfect. What pleases me most is that, even with my picky and sensitive skin, I can use the body products without the fear of breaking out a rash. My top picks from this box are the miracle balm and the hand butter.
