How to make the perfect self-care box - Jalisa Harris

Hi friends! It’s that time of year when the kiddos are out for Summer break and your self-care routine ends up hitting the dust. We all know I am such a self-care advocate which is why I blog about it so much.

With the Summer just about here and things getting busier than ever, from weekend camping trips, day trips and even A’s big 6th birthday, I needed to do something to make sure I kept following my self-care routine. When it comes to a self-care routine, stick to something you enjoy; that you can incorporate into your every day or week. Ex: wellness, being a movie buff, skincare/beauty addict or foodie. It can be different from one person to another, but regardless pick something you enjoy life when you are stressed or just need time to yourself.

self-care items you need

I’ve always shared how skincare has been part of my self-care routine so that is why this self-care box is dedicated to a few favorites that I use weekly if not on a daily basis. Plus I enjoy physical products in my self-care box. So let’s get into what you can put in a self-care box. 😉

How to make the perfect self-care box

Remember when you used to get a gift basket during Christmas time and how great it made you feel? I try to create the same great feeling. Like I’m receiving a personalized gift but from myself. Finding the perfect basket, bin or box to place your products in are important.

After, deciding what you want to feature in your box it becomes so much easier

Things I enjoy placing in my self-care box!

*Caress® Sheer Twilight™ 

*Face Masks/Peels

*Towel *Nail Laquer


I’m all about creating a nighttime self-care routine since that is when my five-year-old is in bed and have a couple of hours to myself.

Step 1: Grab a box or something to place your items in. Make sure you find something reusable. Preferably with a cover.

Step 2: Purchase Caress® Sheer Twilight™. It’s my favorite item to include in my box. After a busy day especially with a hectic schedule, having kids, a demanding job, etc, a bath or shower in the evening is perfect. That’s why using this body wash feels perfect. It’s infused with the notes of alluring black orchids and juniper oil, this body wash gently cleanses your skin, leaving it delicately fragrant and soft. I enjoy using this while taking my evening shower or bath. It includes so many great scents all in one.

    • TOP NOTE: Kumquat Peel, Spicy, Green, Aromatic, Peach
    • HEART NOTE: Black Orchid, Peony, Jasmine, Tuberose, Sheer Jasmine, Violet, Brown Sugar
    • BASE NOTE: Amber, Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Velvet Musk, Patchouli, Vanilla
    • FLORAL FUSION OIL: For a superior fragrance bloom two times better than real flowers.

Caress® Sheer Twilight™ Shower Must Haves

Step 3: Get a nice fluffy towel for that after shower effect. Help your skin keep that silky smooth feeling.

Step 4: Find your favorite face mask. Depending on your skincare needs. There are so many different types of facial masks out now.

Step 5: I’m all about a great pedicure after a shower or bath. The hot water helps soften my cuticles. It’s the perfect pre-pedicure.

Step 6: Any additional accessories like a comfy pajama or sweatshirt. I’m the type that sleeps with 3 layers on even in the Summer so a cute sweatshirt would work great for me.

Step 7: So it doesn’t feel like a chore trying grabbing all your self-care box items at the same place like Family Dollar.

    This is so exciting. I used to have a box of self care goodies, but I haven’t replenished it in a long time. You have inspired me to get moving on this again, and I’m going to check out your suggestion for Caress Sheer Twilight!

    This is the perfect pick me up box! Every mom should have one of these.

    I’m such a terrible self care organizer this was very helpful.

    I never really purchase my own self care stuff but rather receive them as gifts although I know I need more.

    Love this! We always think to make something for others! Need to get this together!!

      That would be a great idea. Especially when so many barely have time for Self-Care.

    Wow what a great idea! I’ve never heard of this but it sounds lovely!
