Sugarfina Sweet Lips Candies – value: $2.50
These candies are in the shape of lips and are so cute for a February box! They were actually pretty good, and they came with a promo code, too.
Geometric Layered Necklace – value: $29
The necklace got a little washed out in the photo, but its gold and the bar of beads on the middle strand are a pretty grey-green. It’s a very pretty necklace! I don’t wear much gold jewelry, but this is light, simple, and easy to wear so it will probably get some use.
Live Beautifully Berry Lime Green Tea Lip Balm – .25 oz, value: $6
You Are So Loved Print – value: $14
I’m not a huge fan of lime flavors, so this lip balm will be passed along to a friend. The packaging is really cute, though, and it gets good reviews!
I love getting prints in subscription boxes, but I’m actually not a fan of this one. Personally, I feel like it looks like something I could make in Microsoft Word. I’ll probably gift it to my sister, who’ll like it, but to me it’s just not worth the $14 value.
Hearts on a Mission Candle – 4 oz, value: $12
This is such a cute little travel candle! It smells great, too. The fragrance has a blend of hyacinth, lily of the valley, violets, and wild jasmine with some light musky notes to add some balance. It’s very floral and very fresh – I like it.
Verdict: Overall, I liked this Mission Cute box. I love the necklace and the candle, the candies were pretty good, but I’ll be gifting the balm and the print. The value totals up to $61, and even without the balm and print, it’s still a $41 value so I’m happy. Plus, I know 50% of the profits go to a good charity, so that definitely helps me feel better.
