Inside this #editorsbox, you’ll uncover a collection of products that will help keep you calm, get quality sleep and add some style
As we look back at 2021, we reflect on another year of extraordinary experiences, full of just as many challenges as wins. To recognize our collective success as we remain focused in strange times, we wanted to note the season with a collection full of dependable staples, inventive health aids and restorative finds.
We are incredibly proud to have been named the Best Men’s Lifestyle Box in Canada again this year by the Canadian Subscription Box Awards, hosted by our friends at A Year of Boxes. It heartens us to celebrate great Canadian makers and designers each season… and this fall is no exception.
1. Bl’eau – Revitalizing Algae Clay Mask, $39
We hear a lot about selfcare these days. Ever sat back and tried a mask? It actually helps to brighten your mug and detoxify your skin. Fueled by natural elements pulled from Canadian glaciers, this option by British Columbia’s Bl’eau even removes dead skin cells. With the harsh realities of winter in our part of the world, that’s a major bonus–and it’s a great tool to promote blood circulation too. Rich in vitamins and mineral salts, the formula is made without parabens and sulfates. Just use it a couple of times each week, or as often as you like. Suitable for all skin types.
2. Extraordinary Man – Stitched Notebook, $10
We all know how many to-dos are on the list over the holiday season, so this simple but sophisticated stitched notebook is a great way to keep organized. With 50 ruled pages, you’ll have plenty of room to jot down lists, tasks and anything else you need to remember.
The high-contrast blackand-white print is classic and understated, but will certainly make an impact when it’s spotted on your desk or in a bag while heading to a meeting.
3. Jubel Naturals – Sleep Tight Mist, $17
Vancouver's Jubel Naturals excels at harnessing the power of nature to help you feel better.
They deliver affordable, high-performance natural products using carefully selected ingredients that are known for their quality and health benefits. Their Sleep Tight Mist is a great example. It's crafted with a soothing blend of ylang ylang, lavender, vanilla, jasmine and clary sage to restore a sense of peace while reducing anxiety and stress. This calming scent helps you unwind, relax and sleep restfully. Simply mist onto linens, into the air and onto the body prior to bedtime to promote better sleep.
4. Wolf Clothing Co. – Arctic Sock, $17.99
The socks of Vancouver’s Wolf Clothing Co. are now staples in our wardrobes. Stylish, high quality and, above all, truly comfortable, they offer a locally designed addition to your outfits that impresses with a bright infusion of colour. This winter’s pick is the Artic. A sophisticated blue-on-navy palette and the familiar 176-needle count stitching–to connect toe and sock–
ensures another seasonal win… and another great wear.
5. I Luv It Natural Deodorant – Natural Trailblazer, $23
We introduced subscribers to Vancouver’s I Luv It Natural Deodorant in 2020, and, with a sensitive skin formula now available, we decided it was time to return to a proven favourite. Boasting just six ingredients, this pick is an effective paste that provides a healthier way to stay feeling your best. Sandalwood, clay and arrowroot combine in a bacteria-stopping formula, free from aluminums, parabens,sulphates, synthetics, toxins and unwanted chemicals.
6. Well Told Health Botanicals – Sleep, $19.99
Toronto’s Well Told Health Botanicals prides itself on creating high-quality, plant-based products at fair prices. Their Sleep offering is “the stuff dreams are made of”. Boasting a combination of organic lemon balm and goji berries in a vegan capsule, it promotes a state of calm and can be used as a non-habit forming sleep aid for those who experience restlessness or insomnia due to mental stress. Added plus? It’s free of fillers, synthetics and GMOs. Remember to consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you share this product with someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding, and avoid taking with alcohol or products that cause drowsiness.
