Old Whaling Company Lip Scrub – 2 oz, value: $6
I was excited to see a full-size jar of lip scrub in this box! I always kind of feel bad about purchasing sugar lip scrubs because I feel like I should just mix sugar and oil myself and get the same effect. This scrub has a pretty neutral, fresh scent (I don’t think there’s any fragrance or flavoring in it), and works great!
Shower steamers aren’t something I’ve tried yet, but I guess I’m going to now! The “blonde moment” scent actually smells a lot like bubblegum or cotton candy.
Copper Leaf Earrings from Totally Tish – value: $5
These earrings scream “autumn” to me, but I like leaf-themed jewelry so I’ll probably still get some use out of them before then. If not, I’ll probably pass them along to my sister-in-law.
The Verdict: This wasn’t my favorite Mini Dottie Box, but I really like the lip scrub and know I’ll get a lot of use out of it. As far as the value of the box goes, everything adds up to $13 which breaks even of the cost (including shipping). I wish there were a little more value to the box, but maybe it’s just an off month for this one.
