Each box comes with a fold-out card that lists and describes each featured item, as well as their values.
Lindo Konjac Sponge (Vegan and Cruelty Free) – value: $15CAD/$11.30USD
I learned about konjac sponges when I started working at Sephora. I like them; they balance the pH in your skin and act as a gentle exfoliant that you can use every day.
Lollia “Breathe” by Margot Elena Perfumed Shower Gel – 8 oz, value: $30CAD/$22USD
This shower gel is great! It smells delicious and the packaging is really pretty, too. The fragrance is infusions of ruffle peony, white lily, grapefruit, and sweet orange. The formula also has bee balm, shea and mango butter, and avocado oil.
Mudlark Memento Boxed Notes in Rue St-Germain – 20 ct, value: $18CAD/$13.50USD
These are pretty and springy! I like florals, and I’ve found that I really like to have blank notes and cards on hand because I don’t have to dig to find the “right occasion” card if I need to pick one out last minute.
Mini Lindt Chocolate Bunnies – 3 pieces, value: $3 USD
These are so cute! They’re little mini chocolate bunnies and they’re even hollow like the big ones. Lindt is my favorite chocolate brand, and I thought these were a really cute bonus treat for March. I’m always happy to get chocolate in my boxes!
Here’s a look at what the cards look like themselves. Just like the top of the box. I also like that I can repurpose the box, because it’s pretty and decorative.
Organic Infused Basil Oil By La Tourangelle Artisan Oils (Non GMO) – 8.45 oz, value: $12CAD/$9USD
These two items are my favorite things in this month’s box! I’m really excited about this oil. You can use it as a dipping oil, salad dressing, paired with tomatoes and fresh mozzarella, grilled chicken or fish, drizzled on pasta, pizza, or grilled bread. It has my mouth watering!
Oil Serving Dish – value: $6CAD/$3.80USD
This oil serving dish is really pretty. The grape design is interesting and the info card shows how you can use balsamic vinegar in the indent of each grape of the design to make a cool design when you serve your dipping oil!
Verdict: Again, I’m really impressed with White Willow! I really like the items they curated this month. The value adds up to approximately $62.60 USD – I’m happy with that value! I think White Willow is doing great as a new box and I’m excited to see future boxes.
