Did you know that the best time to harvest citrus fruits is in the middle of winter? It’s true, the period between late December and early March is known as citrus season, when tropical fruits are at their sweetest. Our team at Boxed Water was also super excited to learn that February is National Grapefruit Month, which arrives just in time for the launch of our new flavored water line that includes Grapefruit Boxed Water.
As the excitement surrounding the debut of our four new flavors continued to build, we began virtually chatting about why we love grapefruit so much, and which grapefruit products stand out as favorites. And since sharing is caring, we’ve rounded up a list of grapefruit beauty products and wellness essentials from some of our favorite brands!
Curie’s hydrating hand sanitizer debuted when the world needed it most.

This hand sanitizer is made with only clean ingredients and comes in 100% recyclable packaging. Choose from three scents — Grapefruit Cassis, White Tea, or Orange Neroli — they all smell great!
If you’re looking to accelerate your hydration, check out Hydrant’s Grapefruit electrolyte drink mix. Add this lightly flavored, real fruit juice powder mix to a Boxed Water 250mL or 500mL carton (depending on your taste preference) for a balanced electrolyte boost and noticeable lift in your day.

Planning to add more grapefruit to your diet in 2021? If so, you’re making a healthy choice. Grapefruit is jam-packed with nutritional benefits. It’s loaded with Vitamin A & Vitamin C and has a number of nutrients that support a strong immune system. Because of its size, Grapefruit is sometimes difficult to eat without making a mess. Enter the Grapefruit tool that makes slicing and serving simple. The double-bladed knife seamlessly segments the citrus fruit and a jagged edge spoon makes spear out the sections to eat, super easy.
You’re probably familiar with Lush, a cosmetic company known for its unique, natural beauty line. Lush uses natural and clean ingredients to make fun products like body scrubs, facial cleansers, and bath bombs. If you haven’t already tried Happy Hippy body wash, add this one to your list. This citrusy gel is packed with zesty grapefruit and bergamot oils, revitalizing your skin to make you look and feel refreshed. While most of Lush’s products are sold naked (eliminating unnecessary packaging), you can feel good knowing any product that comes in a plastic bottle is 100% post-consumer plastic and can be recycled.
Cleansing wipes are essential when you’re on-the-go, but it’s important to consider the chemicals we use on our skin on a regular basis.

Burt’s Bees also makes a grapefruit lip shimmer and a classic lip balm.
