Maple Blume Subscription Box Review – June/July 2017

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Maple Blume is a high-end, all-natural, luxury beauty box. Every other month, you’ll receive 5 full or deluxe size beauty products.

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

The Subscription Box: Maple Blume

The Cost: $120 + $20 shipping CAD to the US (About $112 total)

The Products: A premium beauty box filled with a minimum of 5 full size or deluxe sample size luxury skincare and cosmetic products every two months. Each box will be filled with entirely new products from different companies.

Ships to: US and Canada

This box comes with an info card detailing all the products included.

Now, on to the items!

Laurel Whole Plant Organics Facial Serum – FULL SIZE! Value $96

This serum is made with all organic ingredients, and no surprise, it smells lovely! (I’m always a fan, of a natural, herbal scent when it comes to skincare.)

You only need a drop or two to cover your full face, so this should last for a while. It absorbs pretty quickly but still gives a sheen to your skin. I think the beauty term is “glow” or “radiance” and I’d have to agree!

Naturallogic Ancient Earth Micro Exfoliate – 2 oz Value $20

I have to admit, I was a little disappointed to see that this isn’t full size. (It’s the travel sized, 2 oz version, compared to the 4 oz full-size version.)

Size complaints aside, this formula is fantastic. It’s a mousse-like whipped facial scrub that is SO gentle. It has both fine exfoliation particles and a fruit enzyme to help brighten and even skin tone. It left my skin feeling soft and clean – but not dried out.

H For Love Lip Glace in Root & Berry – FULL SIZE! Value $17

I’ve sampled this before thanks to Boxwalla, and I’m a fan!

This tinted lip balm is has a sweet, minty flavor. It provides a nice sheen and a wash of color. Here it is swatched:

Vo. Bath & Co. Citrine Lotion Body Scrub – 6 oz Value $22.50

This is the best body scrub I have ever tried. EVER!

It’s a fine sugar scrub, so it’s gentle, there’s the perfect amount of shea butter to leave your skin moisturized after you rinse it off, and the citrus scent is so fresh, clean, and fabulous!

I’m 100% going to buy more of this after my jar is empty – it’s too good to live without it now that I’ve sampled it!

Pure Anada Cosmetics Mascara – FULL SIZE! Value $14

Admittedly, I wasn’t expecting much from this mascara when I sampled it. (My general experience with all-natural mascaras is that they are great for a subtle, natural look, but not for the volume, length, and drama I want in a mascara.)

But, now after applying a few layers, I am seriously impressed! You can still get that subtly-enhanced natural look with just one coat, but I got major volume and length with multiple coats! This is the best all-natural mascara I’ve ever tried!

White Meadows Farms Maple Sugar Candy – Bonus

This was a cute little bonus, and it reminded me of the time Ross ate too much Maple Sugar Candy!

Verdict: This box has a value of about $170. Considering it cost $120 + $20 shipping to the US, I was hoping for a higher value. UPDATE: This cost $120 + $20 CAD, so about $112 total USD. (I really think all the beauty products should be full-size if you are paying over $100 a box!)

The value concern aside, everything included is a high-end, all-natural, and all-fabulous beauty product. The curation here is excellent, and I’ve discovered some brand new favorites!

What do you think of Maple Blume?

  1. I love that you mention Ross’ overindulgence in maple candy, ha ha! I love Friends too, and that episode was hilarious! This looks like a really nice box.

  2. Does this box charge in CAD or US funds? I thought it was CAD, if so the cost of the box would be closer to $112 US with the current exchange including shipping. Makes the value better as many of the values in the review are already in US $.

    • You’re correct! The 120 price is in CAD (fortunately!). 🙂

      Liz, I’m glad you made some nice discoveries in the box! I was under the impression they only included full-sizes (I swear that’s all I ever received when I was subbed), so I was surprised to read they included a travel sized product…. but at least it was a good one!

      • Oh, thanks for letting me know! I looked at the email order invoice and saw the $140 and didn’t realize it was in CAD. I’ll update the review!

  3. I don’t subscribe to this box…but I love LOVE the link to Friends! Hilarious! THanks!
