Moi-meme Monthly - The Summer Scents Box - July 2021

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m absolutely amazed that we are in July already. Over half way through the year, and now in the month of my birthday, I feel like we’ve sped through this year at the speed of light.


Time is going so quickly, that I wasn’t expecting my Moi-meme box on the day it turned up, as it didn’t feel like that long ago I’d already had one. Needless to say I was thrilled to have my monthly gift to myself arrive, and I have to say this box is pretty great. For July we have The Summer Scents Box, and here’s what Moi-meme have said about it on the information card that comes in the box;


When we’re asked to think of the scent of summer, it is the season that offers the most diverse range of answers. For some it’s the coconut aroma of sun cream or the citrus of fruit trees, for others the smell of grass after a warm rain shower or bowl of strawberries and cream.”

The first item I homed in on was the Electric Pear Fig candle by Chickidee. This rather massive candle boasts up to 50 hours of burn time and smells absolutely amazing. Moi-meme have previously given us a room spray from Chickidee (mine is Peach Ice Tea an smells divine!) so I’m confident that it’s a quality brand.


The candle is made from soy wax, with blends of uplifting citrus, verbena flower and fig tree. The candle itself is poured into a heavy concreate vessel, which Moi-meme have suggested can be used as a desk tidy or a planter. As someone with many plants, with lots of them in boring plastic pots I’m more than happy to have a pretty outer pot to pop one in when this candle eventually burns out. Its nice to have the added sustainability that the packaging can be re-used for something useful as well. 

Next up in the box was the sweet treat, and oh my, what a treat it is! The edible item for this months box is a twist on the classic Eton Mess desert – which is one of my favourites by the way! Kacao Chocolaterie have created this absolutely delicious bar of creamy white chocolate topped with meringue and freeze-dried raspberries and strawberries.


Both my husband and I ate this on the same day the box arrived, and I have to say, this bar is every bit as wonderful as it sounds. In fact, I would even go so far as to say it’s my favourite of all of the chocolates and sweet things we’re had so far.

Last but by no means least is the ‘Vegan’ by Happy Skin Coconut Cream Cleanser. This cleanser is designed to gentle remove grime and make up using all natural ingredients such as aloe vera and as you may have guessed; coconut.


The product is designed to provide an effective cleanse without drying out the skin. I’ll admit that I haven’t actually tried this yet. I currently have a flare up of eczema on various parts of my body, including a few spots on my face, so I want to stick to my regular skincare routine for the time being and not mess with it too much. Rest assured I’ll be reporting back soon! 

 There we have a round up of this month’s box! As I touched on at the start of this post, I really enjoyed this box. I’m looking forward to a beautiful smelling home and to try out the Coconut Cream Cleanser when my skin has had a chance to clear and recover.

  1. I saw this candle on your Instagram and was so curious about it then - sounds like a gorgeous product and with a really lovely and useful container that you can use afterwards too. I haven't had a subscription box for ages, I might look into Moi-Meme, you always get such lovely things! x

    1. It's really lovely! I have it on my desk at home, because even when it isn't lit I can still smell it! I would highly recommend having a look into Moi-meme - they do both a monthly or a quarterly box depending on what you are after :)

  2. Ooo, I love what you've gotten in this box, especially the candle! Every time I read your review it convinces me more that I just have to try the Moi-Meme box for myself. The litte sweet treat sounds delicious, I adore Eton mess!

    1. I love candles, so they'll always be a winner for me, but this one is soooo nice! Haha you should absolutely try it! You can even get a one off box from their store if you didn't want to commit to a full on subscription.
