This month, the city we get to sample is Brooklyn!
Each Hazel Lane box comes with a card detailing each product inside the month’s box. How cute is it that they make them look like boarding passes?
BAGGU Small 3D ZIP in Cat – Value: $8
I love all things BAGGU – their products are all simple and high-quality. Personally, I find this cat pattern adorable and I had no idea BAGGU was from Brooklyn!
Tea towels must be some kind of trend this year because I’ve received them in a couple other boxes recently, as well. I’m glad that I like this pattern a lot, and I’m happy to see an Etsy shop/small business featured in the box, as well.
Here’s a photo of the towel, unfolded:
Miss Marisa Fragrance Oil – 1/8 oz, value: $18.95
SW Basics Makeup Remover – 1 oz, value: $7
Tattly Friendship Bracelet Temporary Tattoo – value: $2.50
I absolutely love this perfume. The card describes the scent as “scents of plum blossoms, morocco mint, and water lilies.” It’s definitely a scent I’ve never smelled before, and perfect for summer. I’ve actually worn this just about every day since I got this box, and you don’t have to apply much for it to be detectable all day. Additionally, the size of the bottle plus the rollerball applicator makes it perfect to keep in your purse.
This makeup remover from SW basics is organic and made from only sweet almond oil, olive oil, and jojoba oil. I’ve been a fan of this brand for a long time!
The verdict: I was thrilled with this Hazel Lane box. I like everything in it, and I love Hazel Lane’s vision and execution! I definitely look forward to more boxes from them. As far as value goes, I estimated this box to be a little under $55 worth of product for a $39.99 box. Definitely a win for me!
