Mother's Day Gift Idea: Vivabox Review and Giveaway



What is a vivabox
More than a gift. An experience.

A vivabox is an exciting new product that combines the freedom of choice with the personal touch of a real gift. This two layered gift can be the answer to all of your gift giving dilemmas. The first layer is a gift inside the box that is intended to familiarize the recipient with the product. The second layer is the gift card that can be redeemed for their gift selection from a menu of choices.

1. You Pick The Theme
Do you have an idea as to what type of gift someone would like? Select one of our themes that you think they would enjoy the most. This is the part that gives it a personal touch.

2. They Try The Samples
They open the box and enjoy the gift inside. Depending on the box this could be a gift to try, taste or use and they all relate to the theme of the box.

3. They Choose The Gift
After enjoying the first gift, the recipient visits this website and enters their card number. They will be taken through the redemption process where they choose their final present. This is where the freedom of choice happens.

Result: You have given them a present they actually WANTED! The basic theme was chosen by you for a personal touch but the actual gift was customized by the recipient. This ensures that you have given what he or she will most enjoy. Plus, they got to experience the joy of receiving the perfect present for longer than ripping off the wrapping paper.


Vivabox sent me the L'Occitane Experience to review.

A gift that combines nature and research to delight the senses and deliver proven benefits.

For over thirty years, the fields of Provence and the traditions and techniques of this unspoiled land have been the secret and inspiration behind L'Occitane beauty products. They are rich in natural active ingredients and essential oils, which are mostly organic and patented, and always of controlled origin. Even today, all of their products are developed and produced there, in the small Provencal town of Manosque.

Let her experience four L'Occitane top selling body cream deluxe samples. Then use the included gift certificate at the nearest L'Occitane boutique and get the full size version of her favorite. As an extra special treat, she can also indulge in a complimentary Shea Butter Hand Cream.


What is Included:

* Honey & Lemon Delightful Cream (2.6oz)
* Shea Ultra Rich Body Cream (1.7oz)
* Almond Milk Concentrate (0.28oz)
* Olive Luminous Body Cream (0.28oz)
* Gift certificate for a full size body cream.
* *Bonus* Shea Butter Hand Cream (0.5oz)


One of the best parts of the Vivabox is the fact that whoever you're purchasing it for can sample a few products, and then choose which product they want a full size version of. Let me just tell you. I had an awful time choosing which product I'd like a full size version of. I eventually chose the Honey and Lemon Delightful Cream. It smells so yummy and made my skin extremely soft with a healthy glow. I love the clean fresh scent and the fact that it's not overpowering. Yummy! You all need to try it!
