This is a review of the September 2019 Bombay And Cedar Premium Box which is $49.95 per month.
Inside each box, you’ll find a booklet that lists the monthly theme and included products. This month’s box theme is “Agility”.
Here’s more info on the theme from the booklet:
“Agility is the ability to change the direction of the body in an efficient and effective manner. Agility isn’t just physical, but also mental. If you do the right things, you can quickly see improvements in both your physical and mental agility. We hope this month’s box helps you along the way.”
The booklet also contains info on some of the featured brands, a productivity pocket diffuser blend recipe, and 10 activities for improved agility.

Bombay & Cedar Essential Oils in Spanish Rosemary – $14 value AND Spearmint – $14 value
Each month’s Bombay And Cedar box includes two of their amazing essential oils. This month they included Spanish Rosemary and Spearmint. Spanish Rosemary is very herbal and green while spearmint is minty and fresh. A card is included for each oil with usage and benefits info.
Hemp Seed Body Care Moisturizing Oil Spray – $15.99 value
Next up is a full sized 8oz. bottle of hemp seed moisturizing oil spray by Hemp Seed Body Care! This ultra hydrating body oil contains a mix of hemp seed oil, avocado oil, jojoba seed oil, apricot kernel oil, and coconut oil for the softest skin ever! Plus, it has the most divine sweet coconut beachy scent which leaves skin lightly scented. I like using this oil after bathing to really lock-in moisture. The formula is 100% vegan and paraben-free too!
417 Games, Puzzles & Trivia Challenges Specially Designed To Keep Your Brain Young Book – $16.95 value (*titles vary)
All subscribers received a puzzle book by various authors. I received a huge book that contains over 400 activities that help keep the brain young. There’s loads of puzzles, fill in the blank phrases, word searches, picture activities, and more. Overall a really interesting book that will keep you busy for hours!
Almost Famous Beauty Blender with Stand – $29 value (*subscribers receive brow shaver, eyelash curler, or beauty blender)
I love my Beauty Blender sponge so I was curious to see how this makeup sponge by Almost Famous compared. I found that it feels very similar to the original Beauty Blender sponge and applies foundation in the same fashion plus it comes with a handy stand to hold the sponge so I am giving this sponge a thumbs up!
Ampere Creations Vegan Handbag – $35 value (*styles vary)
Also in this month’s premium box is a vegan handbag by Ampere Creations. Styles and colors vary. I received an adorable wristlet bag in a very Fall-worthy mustard yellow color that I am loving! The bag comes with a detachable wristlet strap and a longer cross-body strap which is awesome but most awesome of all is that I can fit my huge Samsung Galaxy Tab phone in it! The interior is lined in a cute striped fabric and there’s zippered pockets and slots for credit cards too. The vegan leather is super soft and has a textured leather look- you’d prob think it’s leather if you didn’t know it’s not. This bag is definitely one of my favorite subscription box finds to-date!
Spa Room Pocket Aroma Diffuser Kit – $20 value
Bombay & Cedar also included this pocket diffuser kit to put those essential oils to good use! Each kit includes 12 containers, 6 shells & lids, 18 refill rods, and 12 white caps so you can make 6 different personal diffusers at a time. These little diffusers are easy to assemble and use and so convenient! Just add your fave essential oil blend and throw one in your purse or gym bag and you’ll have aromatherapy on-hand wherever you go!
IQBar Brain + Body Bar – $2.49 value (*flavors vary)
Bombay & Cedar always includes some sort of healthy treat and this month it’s a Brain + Body Bar by IQBar. IQ bars include ingredients that promote brain and body health including lion’s mane, MCT’s, omega-3, flavonoids, vitamin E, and choline. I received the chocolate sea salt flavor which is so good! It has chocolate chips sprinkled throughout along with crunchy almonds and a dash of sea salt. IQ Bars are also low in sugar, carbs, gluten-free, non-GMO, dairy-free, soy-free, and contain lots of plant protein. I liked this bar enough to buy it again on Amazon!
Kol Exfoliating Towel – $7 value
Charcoal is great for detoxing skin and neutralizing odors so it makes sense that Kol decided to infuse a towel with it. This charcoal fiber towel gently exfoliates skin and unclogs pores while the charcoal draws out impurities which helps to prevent blemishes. The towel is long (36″ L x 9″ W)- kinda like a scarf so it’s easy to scrub your back or I suppose you could cut it into smaller pieces to make it more manageable for the face.
IPO Cosmetics 4-Step Facial – 2 Mask Sets, $15 value
These 4-step facials by K-beauty brand IPO Cosmetics are perfect before a big event or when skin needs a little TLC at home. Each box contains two 4-step facials. Each step is packaged in individual pouches that are easy to tear off. The steps are- exfoliating scrub, microfiber sheet mask, hydration cream, and replenishing eye cream. The whole process takes about 25 minutes if you leave the sheet mask on for the full 20 minutes. I loved using this 4-step facial- it felt very spa-like and left my skin glowy and smooth!
As usual, Bombay & Cedar impressed with their monthly premium box! The curation is surprising and fun, and the value is amazing! I enjoyed all of the products in this box- especially the body oil (smells sooo good!), the makeup sponge (you can never have too many makeup sponges!), the 4-step K-beauty facials (my skin says thank you!), and the fab vegan leather bag (so cute and so practical!). This box is worth $164.52 which I feel is an awesome value for the box price. If you’re looking for a lifestyle subscription box that provides fun surprises, variety, and consistently high value for the cost, I highly recommend Bombay And Cedar!
