I really love how White Willow includes photos of each item and the variations they sent across boxes.
Citrus Amaro Shower Gel by Skin & Co. Roma – 7.7 fl oz, value: $17
This shower gel is free of sulfates, parabens, mineral oils, petrolatum, and paraffin. I’ve been enjoying using this – it smells great and lathers well. It’s made in Italy, too!
Herbs de Provence Oil by La Tourangelle 8.45 fl oz, value: $6.99
This oil is infused with Rosemary and Thyme and is BPA- and GMO-free. I love infused olive oils and this one will be so versatile! I can’t wait to make some roasted potatoes tossed in this, or with salad dressings or stovetop cooking!
Here’s the back label with all the nutritional info, ingredients, and even a “recipe” for how to make Herbs de Provence Potatoes!
This next item was packaged up really carefully….
Julep Glass Dish by MUDLARK – value: $12.80
This glass dish is so pretty! I love the pattern and color. The bottom is a solid white back to the print. I can see this making a perfect mini catch-all for my vanity.
Ceramic Berry Basket – value: $13.50
Subscribers received this in either yellow or blue and I am so happy I got the blue! I think it’s such a cute way to serve berries/fruit.
This is definitely a great summer item!
Citrus Amaro Hand Cream by Skin & Co. Roma – 0.34 oz, value: $2.70 (bonus item!)
This hand lotion has sweet almond oil and shea butter. The fragrance is lavender & orange and smells so fresh and uplifting. It also hydrates and absorbs really well without any greasy feeling on my hands. This little tube is great for tossing in my small purse.
Sephora Rose Sleeping Mask – 0.27 oz, value: $4
I didn’t have especially high expectations for this mask, but I was really surprised at how much I like it! It’s very cooling and refreshing when you put it on and I woke up to super soft and hydrated skin. I have dry skin so this product is especially great for me. I will say though that this little pod has enough product for multiple uses… maybe 3 or 4 uses if you just apply to your face, 2 if you also apply to your neck/décolleté. I wish you could reseal the pod, though. I definitely think this is worth the price (which is very affordable considering the price range skin care generally sells for) and is effective!
Verdict: I am really happy with this White Willow box! I love everything in it and I know I’ll use it all. It was also really fun to open and discover new products that I really like now. The value adds up to $60 which is on the low end for this box. Even so, though, I don’t particularly mind because I’m excited about every item in it.
