September marks the end of summer, and back into real life. It also marks the launch of our Fall box. We are so excited (aren’t we always) to share with you what’s inside. Our theme for this season's box is snuggling up in a blanket and reading a good book or binge-watching your favorite Netflix series.
Being from Vancouver, Canada we’re used to the wet weather moving in, and grey skies ahead. In an ode to the Pacific Northwest, each of the vendors in our box hails from beautiful British Columbia.
Without further adue, let's introduce the Fall Jiyubox:
Plenty + Spare Bar Soaps When Skies are Grey
Start your day (or evening) off with a nice warm shower and rinse off with Plenty + Spare’s When Skies are Grey Soap Bar. This bar has an uplifting blend of lemongrass and lavender essential oil to rejuvenate the senses. It’s sure to wake you right up and brighten even the darkest day.
Packed with clays and essential oils, When Skies are Grey is the essential everyday soap and lasts months! We’ve been using the same bar for over 3 months and it’s still going strong.
We visited Plenty + Spare’s retail shop in Vancouver and fell in love with not only their products, but also their love for other local brands. They stock everything from bodycare to to homeware, to greeting cards. All from local Vancouver companies.
Nootka & Sea Desert Rose & Sage Herbal Buttercream
After hopping out of the shower, you’ll want to hydrate your skin with Nootka & Sea’s Desert Rose & Sage Herbal Buttercream. Ultra thick and rich, it’s infused with vitamin rich oils of sunflower, pumpkin, rosehip, and argan. Don’t be fooled by how dense it is. This buttercream quickly absorbs into the skin leaving you feeling seriously hydrated.
We went to visit Nootka & Sea’s store in beautiful Squamish along the Sea to Sky Highway. Let’s just say their shop is a green lifestyle enthusiast’s paradise. The moment you walk in, you’re instantly hit with the smell of calming essential oils, and feel instantly welcomed by the airiness and greenery surrounding you.

Woodlot Fresh Face Exfoliant
The perfect supplement to make any skincare routine luxurious. Woodlot’s Fresh Face Exfoliant is a physical exfoliator that gently buffs away dead skin cells. Its main ingredients of almond and quinoa flour leave skin feeling silky smooth and fabulously fresh. Woodlot crafts their products with an emphasis on high quality, plant based ingredients. All of their products are made naturally, 100% eco-friendly, vegetarian, and cruelty-free. Yeah. We’re a fan.
Midnight Paloma Mask KIt
Treat yourself with Midnight Paloma’s Detox Mask, complete with a high quality mask brush. This mask is Midnight Paloma’s hero product, and their best seller. This mask’s main ingredient - charcoal absorbs impurities and actus like a magnet to draw out dirt from pores. A true testament to their inclusivity of all skin types, try mixing the mask with either honey for dry skin, yogurt for oily skin, or water for a straight detox.
To be totally honest, the mask brush was a total game changer. Using this brush really gives you the full spa experience. It makes application cleaner, smoother, and more luxurious.
