I love how everything looks cohesive and festive!
Each box comes with a fold-out card that lists and describes each featured item, as well as their values.
Timree Holiday Cards – 6 pack, value: $9(USD)
These cards were actually included as a free gift! I think they’re really cute and festive.
Sephora Collection Tinted Kiss Me Balm, Candy Apple – value: $8(USD)
This is a great lip balm for when you want moisture and sheer color. I’m also happy to see the Sephora brand in this box! Subscribers received 1 of 5 colors.
Here’s a swatch of the balm. You can see the color is sheer but still pigmented.
Crabtree & Evelyn London White Chocolate Raspberry Biscuits – 3.5 oz, value: $5.75 (USD)
What pretty packaging! It’s perfect for gifting, but I couldn’t resist them. They’re delicious!
I also love how pretty this tin is.
Subscribers received 1 of 6 flavors. I got white chocolate raspberry, but you could also get triple chocolate chunk, strawberries & clotted cream, honey & oat, lemon & white chocolate, and traditional shortbread. I want to try them all! (And FYI – you can try them all! Here’s a whole set with all these flavors in it.)
Bath & Body Works White Barn Mini Lavender Vanilla Candle – value: ~$3.50 (USD) value
I couldn’t find this fragrance at Bath & Body Works as part of the White Barn collection, only in their aromatherapy collection, so they may not still sell these. I don’t mind if that is the case, though, especially because it’s a candle – and it smells great. Approximate burn time is 10 hours, and subscribers received either this scent or Japanese Cherry Blossom.
Calvin Klein 3-Piece Set (hat, scarf, and tech glove) – value: ~$70 (USD
Again, I can’t find this set currently sold online, but I’m definitely not complaining. These are really nice, classic items that I’m really impressed to see in a subscription box! Subscribers got either cream or beige. I’d prefer the beige but white is great, too. They’re 100% acrylic and really soft.
Verdict: I’m really impressed with White Willow’s first box! I’m really excited to see brands like Sephora and Calvin Klein (and even Bath and Body Works) in it! The value adds up to approximately $96.25 USD – I’m really happy with that value! I think White Willow released a great first box and I’m looking forward to seeing what they send in future boxes!
