Stonyfield Summer in a Box Giveaway!

Happy August!
I'm excited to kick off this month with a fun giveaway! 
There are few things I love better than summer, natural beauty products, and healthy foods, so I'm thrilled to have them all come together in this giveaway from Stonyfield Farms!  Stonyfield sent me one of their special Summer in a Box packages to review and to give away to one lucky SMJ reader.
Check this out!
Each box contains:
2 coupons for boxes of Stonyfield Organic Dipped Frozen Yogurt Bars
1 coupon for Uncle Matt’s Organic Lemonade & Juices
Tom’s of Maine, Beautiful Earth Deodorant 
Tom’s of Maine, Daily Moisture Body Bar
Tom’s of Maine, Simply White Toothpaste
Badger, After Sun Balm
Dr. Hauschka, Melissa Day Cream
Come to mama...
I was over the moon to get this beautiful box of goodies in the mail.  I've written before about my quest to switch to a completely paraben-free, all-natural beauty regimen and I love trying new products in that spirit.  This box was a total winner. 

I've been loving Dr. Hauschka products for a long time, and use their Quince Day Cream regularly.  However, it is a bit heavy for summer, and left me feeling greasy in the last heat wave.  The Melissa Day Cream is formulated to "calm, balance and manage shine", which makes it the perfect summer moisturizer; it smells like fresh-squeezed lemonade, is absorbed by the skin in seconds, and has a clarifying, smoothing effect, almost like a hybrid toner-moisturizer.  I really can't recommend this cream highly enough, especially if you have combination skin.  The tube retails for about $40 and lasts three months or so, making it the definite gem in this box of loveliness!

I also have nothing but great things to say about the Tom's of Maine products.  I've been a fan of this company for a long time, and the products never disappoint.  The toothpaste is minty fresh and the soap smells deliciously of olive oil and is deeply moisturizing.  The deodorant is a new product to me, but having had great luck with their long-lasting line in the past, I had high expectations.  I love the earthy yet feminine scent of this product, and it definitely lasts.  I would just remind anyone delving into the world of natural deodorants that these products aren't meant to be antiperspirants. Your body needs to be able to sweat out toxins, and this product ensures that you still smell sweet in the process... just don't expect that powder-y dry feeling you get from a bottle of Secret.

The little tin of Badger After Sun Balm smells so beautiful, and looks adorable on my dresser as well.  I am a sucker for all things lavender, so I especially dig the floral, almost tropical scent of this product.  And while my face needs less moisture in the summer, my elbows, knees, heels and hands can't get enough, and this balm really delivers at the end of a long, sun-kissed day.

Finally, what could be better than grocery store freebies for delicious and refreshing products?  We're loving the Uncle Matt's OJ, which is thick, sweet and a bit tangy.  It is hard to find organic orange juice, so Uncle Matt's is a real score.  And I am still on the hunt for Stonyfield's new yogurt bars, but I know they won't disappoint... how can you go wrong with Stonyfield fro yo covered in dark chocolate?  This new product is just hitting stores, so they can be a bit tricky to track down, but I'll be sure to report back once we've sampled both the vanilla and chocolate varieties.

Now that you've gotten the lowdown, don't you want a Summer in a Box to arrive at your door?
