Each box comes with an informational card detailing the featured items.
Cacao 7 Skinny Dark Chocolate 70% Cacao Bar – .32 oz, value: $3
The Cozy Project Cup Cozy Sleeve – value: $16
This is a really dark chocolate – I’m a chocoholic and this dark chocolate was definitely appreciated.
I couldn’t find this exact color combo on the Cozy Project’s Etsy Shop, so I linked to a similar one that I also love. This is probably my favorite item in the box! I have a soft spot for the combination of red and mint because they were my sister’s wedding colors, and this is a perfect item for fall – for yourself or as a gift.
Lillian Eve Nail Polish in Royal Affair – .5 oz (full size), value: $12
Botanical Bars Warm Vanilla Sugar Body Butter – 1 oz? value: $2
There’s no size listed on the body butter or the info card, but I’m guessing it’s about an ounce which is the same as the Botanical Bars travel body butters, valued at $2. It leaked in shipping, so I was glad that it came in its own little bag and didn’t damage anything else. The body butter itself seems to be a firm, creamy consistency but when I got it there was some kind of oil leaking from it. After cleaning/draining it, I really liked how it felt on my hands and the smell is amazing (I love vanilla). I was able to make it work so ultimately, this item is a win for me.
Verdict: This was an alright Dottie Box for me this month. I loved the mug cozy, but I was a little underwhelmed with the rest of the items. However, I will get some kind of use out of most of the other things, so I’m not too bummed. As far as value goes, the items add up to $33, which I’m happy with.
