This box comes with a card detailing the items included.
Hibiscus Notebook – $16.00
I love this floral design it reminds me of fall. The hibiscus flowers are beautifully illustrated on this 5×7, 160 sheets, ruled notebook. It’s the perfect size for your purse, for writing to-do lists to starting your holiday shopping strategies.
Orange Cardamom Tea Cookies – Value $3.00
This was delicious tea cookie was crunchy and buttery. I tasted butter, cinnamon, and lavender. I realized after taking the items out of the box, the tea cookies were next to the bath bomb cubes that are lavender sage, that would explain the taste of lavender I got when I ate the tea cookie.
Lavender Sage Bath Bombs Cubes – $12.00
This all natural set of two bath bomb cubes has an appealing aroma. The lavender sage and essential oils are perfect for a long soak after a grueling work day.
Wall Bud Vase – $21.90
When I opened the box and pulled this out, I had no idea what this was or its purpose; upon further investigation this style is “science chic” and intended for a lovely touch of the “outdoors inside”. Basically, this all-natural wood with a colorful painted stripe and test tube in the middle is a wall vase. I love and admire how Emily has repurposed items to make them fun and useful in our lives.
Verdict: The Aster Market August box has a retail value of $52.90. I found this box to be fun and unique, the wall bud vase being the unique part, which I may gift or swap not sure if it will find a home in my apartment. The items that come in these boxes are useful and often times have more of a gifting theme with the products as opposed to other subscription boxes. Which makes it a treat each month to see what fun, unique, eclectic gifts they choose for their subscribers. (If you are looking for a high-value box, I would not recommend Aster Market).
