True North Collection Headband – Value $7
This headband is made from a nylon/lycra material, and it has a lot of stretch. They recommend wearing it midway down your forehead for the most secure fit. I really like the print on this headband, and always need more headbands and hair ties, so this is a win!
I thought this scrub would be heavily rose-scented, but it really just smells like coconut! (I love coconut!) The scrub is made with: dead sea salt, organic virgin coconut oil, organic Pakistani rosebuds, organic soy glycerin, organic rosemary extract.
The problem I have with this scrub is that I went to scoop some out and nearly broke a nail – it is rock hard! The very top of the scrub was just coconut oil, but the salt part was pretty much impossible to scoop out with just my fingers. I’m going to have to try breaking it up with a knife or something. So far I love the scent and ingredients, but the actual usability is a zero. We’ll see if I have any luck breaking the scrub up!
Wild Juniper Tassel Necklace – Value $20
Wild Juniper shows this necklace as a long strand (it measures about 40 inches long), but I think it works well doubled up too:
Verdict: This box has a value of about $55. The value is getting higher every month – I’m happy about that. I still wouldn’t recommend this box if you are looking for a high-value box, but I think it is great if you are looking for a curated box that feels like a gift each month.
Hopefully, I can get that scrub to soften up (it smells SO good), then I’ll use everything in the box this month.
