Saffron Rouge Inner Circle

Saffron Rouge, an organic beauty site, sent me a sample of their Inner Circle subscription box to review. Here's their description of the service: 

These self indulgent little packages include premium samples and an informative letter describing each of your treats. The best part is that you also receive a discount code to save on your favorite full sized versions from the package.

Sounds good! 
Packaging
I don't usually go out of my way to get organic beauty products, and sometimes I feel skeptical about them. Organic is great and everything, but sometimes they can go a little "hippy-dippy" or not be effective, so with a surprise box, I wasn't sure what to expect. My editor and I unboxed it, and here is what we found.

My editor looks over the goods
I was pleasantly surprised- excited even! The first thing that popped out to me was the Suki stuff. Somehow I missed that Saffron Rouge carried Suki when I looked over the site. Any situation that can lead to a discount on Suki should NOT BE IGNORED! That's some of the best stuff out there, organic or not. 

This salve is meant for irritated skin, which I don't have right now, but I did put some of this on my hands. I'm not a huge fan of these types of skin balms or salves because they are SO moisturizing in a way that's not necessary for me as a pampered indoors person with my non-irritated skin. They are usually strongly scented as well, and this one is no exception. But I am glad to have the opportunity to try it, and I think it will work for someone else in my family who has extremely dry feet. Even though this product is not for me, I do think it would be effective for those who need this type of thing.

Hubby tried the bath salts and liked them. He said they don't have as strong a scent as some bath salts. The lavender oil hasn't been tested because I am not in love with lavender, so will probably gift it. 

And for the last products:

The Body Deli Palm Springs Lotion and Fragrance
I personally will only consider a beauty box if it does two things: contains deluxe samples of high-end products and introduces me to something amazing that I have never heard of otherwise. This box did both with the inclusion of these Body Deli Palm Springs products. LOVE the scents, and the formula of the lotion is very effective. 

I thought I had enough beauty sub boxes, but I might change my mind and sign up for Saffron Rouge. The one caution I would give is that all of these products, like many organic products, are very fragranced, so if you have issues with fragrances, this might be one to avoid. Of course you might not get so many bath products in every month's box, but with organic products I do notice stronger fragrances across the board.
