A Global Project Home Friendship Bracelets – value: 10?
Natural Soap Co. Georgia Peach Soap – value: ~$1
I couldn’t find these friendship bracelets for sale online, so I had to guesstimate a value. A Global Friendship is an international non-profit that works towards women’s empowerment and poverty alleviation – definitely causes I’m all about. The bracelets they make are eco-friendly and ethically sourced, too. Personally, I’ll probably tie the three bracelets together and wear them as a multi-strand bracelet.
This soap company is based in my home state, Michigan! The company is dedicated to making paraben-free soap in small batches. It’s supposed to be good for sensitive skin, and this bar sample smells just like peaches and cream!
Printcess Mineral Eye Shadow in Clue – sample
Printcess Mineral Eye Shadow in Narrative – value: $6
These eye shadows are handmade, cruelty-free, vegan-friendly, and free of parabens and other skin irritants. I like that, and I love that they included a full-size of the Narrative color, and a sample of the Clue color. Narrative is a shimmery, warm, cream shade. It makes a great neutral base shadow, but it’d even work great as a highlighter, too. I don’t mind that that the blue shadow is a sample because I’m not likely to use a whole container of that color, so this is just enough for me to play with a little and is a nice little addition.
Verdict: This was a pretty good Dottie Box Mini! I like and will use everything included, and I love that a non-profit was featured. It was hard to do a value estimate, but my values add up to about $17, which I’m happy with for a $10 box ($13 including shipping).
