Subscription boxes are the perfect way to try out products you may not have tried otherwise. There are literally so many types of boxes from beauty to fashion to food, that you may feel all markets have been exhausted. But I just came across a box that really meets a need beyond this body lotion is awesome, you’ve got to try it!
Meet thriveosity, a subscription box start-up that has innovative subscription care packages specifically for caregivers to gift a loved one who is battling cancer.
As you may (or may not) know, when you are going through chemo and radiation, your whole lifestyle has to change. That lotion you used to love now irritates your skin. The chemo treatments are now flaking or peeling your skin and you need to find something that will treat it – but it needs to be free of toxins. You also need to build your strength, and eat healthily to sustain what chemo does to the body.
This is where thriveosity comes in. Launched by Dr. Ritu Trivedi-Purohit, a clinical psychologist working with people impacted by a cancer diagnosis, thriveosity provides the tools thrivers need along their way to recovery.
Each month, the thriveosity box includes products across these five categories:
Skincare, including personal skin care products formulated to provide a little luxury and promote self-care while helping to combat some of the symptoms from the treatment of cancer, like rashes, flaking and peeling. These items are natural and/or organic;
Cognition, including brain games and intellectual stimulation designed to strengthen and sharpen essential skills while helping to combat isolation and boredom through fun and play;
Aromatherapy, including delightful—though not overwhelming—scents and essential oils formulated to please the senses while stimulating improvement and supportive care of physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing;
Nutrition, including healthy and delicious artisanal food products from the best growers/producers that please the palette while nourishing the body with the nutrients it needs to stay strong during cancer treatment;
Basics, including natural, holistic and organic products, free from toxic chemicals using only the purest ingredients, expertly tested and designed to promote self-care, health and wellbeing; and that meet a variety of needs of someone living with cancer.
thriveosity has boxes for women, men and children. And I absolutely love the idea of it. If you’ve ever wondered how you could help someone with a cancer diagnosis, this is a good place to start.
