Flutterfly Scrubs Green Apple Lip Scrub – .5 oz, value: $6?
Lip scrubs are something I like getting in subscription boxes because they’re not something I would normally buy (I love lip scrubs, but when I need one I’m more likely to mix sugar and coconut oil in my hand for it instead of go pay for one). The green apple flavor is interesting. It seems a little young of a flavor for me, but I will still use this.
Oragami Love Note – value: $3
This is a cute little note, but I wouldn’t personally pay $3 for it. It’ll get added to a gift though.
Then there was this little package inside!
Good Eats Mini Desk Calendar – value: $7
This calendar is so cute! I love the dessert theme.
Dottie Box sent one of these calendars in the full-size box this month, but I like this one better. The theme is cute and I like how each month is different with this one.
Art Goodies Coupon
I appreciate coupons as bonuses but am not personally a fan of them being included as a “featured item” unless they’re straight up gift card codes.
Verdict: The value of this month’s mini Dottie Box comes out to $16, which isn’t great. This month isn’t a huge hit for me, personally, but I’ll still use each item so I’m not super bummed.
