Each box comes with an info card detailing the items inside.
I love how they show each item and their variations, too.
Eyes by ToGoSpa Ice Water Collagen Gel Pads – 3 pairs, Value: $12.50
I’m familiar with these eye masks because they seem to be everywhere in subscription boxes. I think this is the first time I’ve tried this particular kind, but I like them alright. They’re definitely cooling (and you can refrigerate them before use to make them extra so), and are good for de-puffing and dark circles.
This syrup is a “gift” from Culinary Team Canada, who apparently are competing for a gold medal at the World Culinary Olympics in Germany this year. I love “real” maple syrup so this is a nice little bonus for me.
Cake-Shaped Towel by Cotture Towel – Value: ~$12.35 USD
This washcloth is interesting. It’s just folded up to look like a slice of cake. It’s 100% cotton, though, which I like. I don’t really care about this looking like a cake but a spare washcloth will get used around my house.
Foxy’s Gourmet Savory Dips, pesto – 3.2 oz, Value: $6.95 USD
This is a mix to make pesto (which I love, and is also amazing on fresh-baked French bread like is suggested on the info card).
Here’s a better look at the little washcloth. It’s a cute novelty thing when it’s folded up, and when it’s unfolded it has a cake-heart and the words “cake family”.
16 oz Flip-Top Define Infuser Bottle – value: $19.99 USD
I know many of you subscription addicts are groaning at yet another infuser water bottle featured in a subscription box… Part of me is a little, too, but this is a good one as far as quality goes. I like that it’s designed to keep the fruit away from the mouthpiece and that it has a little strap on it, too.
Verdict: To be honest, I’m not super thrilled with my White Willow Box this month. None of the items seem as luxe to me as they generally send out, and I’m not super excited about any of the items, but I’ll use many of them. The value adds up to $51.79 USD so that’s still a value I’m happy with from their curation.
