Spa in a Box: The Remedy Rush

The Remedy Rush is a quarterly subscription beauty box service that provides full-size samples of spa-quality products. Here’s our review!

It was a warm (okay, HOT) sunny afternoon and, as I walked up to my mailbox, I was swept away by thoughts of a relaxing spa treatment. It was in that moment that I realized, my care package from The Remedy Rush must be behind that shiny metal door. The aromas from the sampling of products were creating a tranquil fragrance combination that my neighbors surely envied.

Once I got home, I quickly tossed the bills and junk mail aside and set my sights on the brown package luring me in with its aromatic goodness. I should have guessed from the first whiff that this was not going to be filled with tiny samples that barely let you experience the product. No, this was a box packed with full-size products just begging me to rush to the bathroom and try. I graciously obliged.

First, I lit the Lemon Verbena & Sauna Blend Aromatherapy Votives by WoodsSprite, to set the mood. The calming fragrance quickly filled the room as I reached for the Ginger Glow Warming Herbal Spa Salts (also from WoodSprites). The ginger released a fresh burst of energy as I unscrewed the top. I gave the contents a quick stir to re-blend the salts and oils (grapeseed, sweet almond and avocado to be exact) and slowly applied the scrub to my legs that were in much need of a little TLC. Tip: take this process to the tub (or shower). In all of my excitement, I made the mistake of applying on my tile and, as the jar warms, it got a bit slippery. Once I relocated and finished, my legs were in moisture heaven. The oils left a thin protective layer to lock in moisture, but not so thick that I felt the need to scrape it off. Perfection!

Next, I opened the Orange Spice Cleansing Bar from Moon Valley Organics. It had just the right balance of oils, beeswax and grit to slough off that pesky dry skin without feeling like sand paper (as many tend to). And the citrus fragrance with just a hint of clove was luxuriously refreshing.

After finishing in the shower, I applied the Moon Melt Lotion Bar, also from Moon Valley Organics. The lemon-vanilla scent is subtle, and the beeswax base provided a lasting moisture barrier. The best part? A little goes a very long way. You simply warm it in your hands and then softly apply to dry areas. Keep this dry skin soother sink side—trust me, your hands will thank you!

The Remedy Rush box is a perfect compilation of products to create a at-home spa experience. But it didn’t stop there. Also included in the box was 100% Pure French Lavender Essential Oil and De-Stress Essential Oil Blend Roll-on from Fabulous Fannie, both of which are great for essential oil newbies, like myself, and well-loved by avid users too.

Innate also provided an Arnica & Turmeric Muscle and Joint Balm, but, since it’s not recommended for nursing mamas, I couldn’t use it myself. I did, however, have Mr. Mac test it on his aching neck and he found quick relief from the pain. I was surprised at how little of the actual product is needed to see results—really, just enough to coat the skin. I’m pretty sure the jar is going to last us a year, or more, which is saying a lot since we both have chronic muscle fatigue thanks to our workout routines.

I think it’s safe to say, my excitement for subscription boxes has been renewed. The Remedy Rush not only provides full-size samplings of spa-quality products, it also comes quarterly, rather than monthly, so you can truly get to know and love the products while anticipating your next box. You can subscribe quarterly to the care package for $59 per quarter or prepay for four seasons worth of spa for $199. There is also a single gift option for $59, but honestly, after receiving your first package, you won’t want them to stop!
