Every Dottie Box Mini comes with a little card listing the items featured for the month.
Elephant Wish Bracelet – value: $7.99
Wish bracelets are cute ideas: you’re supposed to make a wish when you tie it on and the bracelet will eventually break, and that’s when your wish is supposed to come true.
Black Dahlia Nail Lacquer in Bue Green Earth – 8 ml, value: $7
I’m pretty sure this shade is exclusive to Dottie Box. Black Dahlia polishes are 5-free, which I like (that means they don’t contain DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin or Camphor.)
POSH Skincare Lip Balm – .5 oz, value: $7
This balm is really nice, and smells very fresh and clean (eucalyptus and lemon). However, I have a thing about lip balms in pots where I’m supposed to use my fingers to apply… I don’t want whatever is on my hands to end up in my mouth! I’ll be swapping this or pass it along.
Here’s a swatch of what the polish looks like. This is just one coat!
The Verdict: The value of this month’s mini Dottie Box comes out to $21.99, which is fine. The items this month aren’t a huge hit for me, personally, but that’s just my personal preferences.
