Jus D’Amour Perfume, Sample Oil – Value $4.00
I am always a little nervous trying new perfumes, it seems like such a personal preference, but I absolutely love this scent! It isn’t anything that I would have picked on my own, but I think I am going to have to buy myself a bottle! This perfume is nothing short of decadent with a blend of coco palm, night blooming jasmine, violet, vanilla, and sandalwood. The vanilla and sandalwood mix together perfectly to make this scent rich but not overwhelming. The jasmine and violet add a certain feminine touch that makes this scent almost delicate. A must try!
Dune Jewelry Gold Beach Bangle Heart – Value $44.00
Dune Jewelry specializes in handcrafted jewelry made by artisans that use sand in charms to help you capture your favorite memories. This particular bracelet has a heart charm that is filled with sand from the coast of California and the 90210 beach house! Not only is this bracelet unique and fun but it is beautifully crafted. It is a durable band that you know will stand the test of time even if you wear it every day. I didn’t watch 90210 when it originally aired, but I love to binge watch it now so this bracelet being filled with the sand from the beach house on the show made me fan girl out a little!
The Brow Gal Highlighter Pencil – Value $20.00
The Brow Gal was developed by celebrity makeup expert Tonya Crooks, and the info card highlights that this is a beauty product that Jennie uses every day! This double-ended pencil is a shimmer and matte that you can use to highlight your eyebrow arches or other imperfections you might want to cover. I’ve never used a pencil to highlight my brows, but I really liked how quickly and easily this went on and I was even able to add a little of the shimmer to my eye makeup. The matte end was great to use prior to adding my foundation for any blemishes, and I was able to toss it in my bag to reapply throughout the day as needed. What a great new makeup find!
Here is a swatch of both ends of the pencil.
I have never really used makeup remover, can you believe it? So I was really excited to see this Green Clean makeup melt away balm from Farmacy. Since this was a sample size, it doesn’t come with a spatula like listed in the ‘how to’ section for the larger size, but I was able to easily get a good amount on my hand to massage into my face. I was surprised by how much makeup came off once I rinsed! Using this product really helped make my face feel extra clean after using my usual face wash after, and it didn’t leave my skin feeling dry or red. No matter how much makeup I have on, this product seems to provide that extra clean and fresh feeling that I love to keep my skin clear!
This is a thick jelly based salve that is great for extra dry skin and smells perfectly sweet like honey. With a toddler, I am constantly washing my hands or doing dishes so my hands can quickly become very dry. I am keeping this lotion on my kitchen sink so that I can use it after every wash because it is that nourishing! You only have to use a tiny bit because the rich royal jelly base provides a thick nourishing oil-like layer.
Mayana Chocolate Kitchen Sink Bar – Value $8.00
This might seem expensive for a candy bar, but this was much more than your typical chocolate bar. This kitchen sink bar is filled with peanut butter, pretzel, crisp rice, chocolate, caramel, and 66% dark chocolate. Mayana chocolates are handcrafted with organic cream, pure ingredients, and never any extracts. This chocolate bar tasted like a crispy, crunchy, sweet homemade treat that I can honestly say I didn’t want to share with anyone, I ate the whole thing!
Chronicle Books Happiness Is Journal – Value $8.95
This adorable little journal is filled with little illustrations that will make you smile daily! The pages are small enough to use to make notes, write down daily memories, or to scribble dreams in the morning. I kept a journal throughout my pregnancy and during my son’s first year, but haven’t purchased a new one to use as he gets older. This journal arrived at the perfect time! I am going to be keeping it next to my bed to reflect at night on each day and adventures my family has!
Modgy Expandable Vase – Value $8.95
What a unique and environmentally friendly piece! This vase is made with BPA-free plastic materials, are shatter proof, and reusable! All you have to do is open the vase pack, fill with water, and place your flowers in. Quick and easy to clean and use again and again or recycle when you are finished! With a toddler running and jumping on everything, I haven’t been able to safely keep flowers out, but this just might be the product that I need to still have flowers in the house without risking breaking any of my other vases!
Pure Hard Surface Disinfectant – Value $3.00? (buy a 3-pack of disinfectant for $6.00)
This hard surface disinfectant is odorless, alcohol-free, and doesn’t contain any bleach. Better yet, it is powerful enough to kill the Norovirus in 60 seconds. Safe and efficient, a mom’s dream! I have been using this travel size container to clean my son’s toys, his high chair tray, and even have used on our kitchen counters. No matter what, this disinfectant seems to work to keep germs away safely!
Caribbean Trading Candle – Value $4.50 (buy a pack of 3 for $13.50)
This candle will help you relax and make your mind wander to your next tropical vacation! This little tea candle is the perfect blend of natural beach and tropical fruity smells that are perfect for the summer. Each candle is hand-made with 100% chemical-free vegetable soy wax.
Lotion Fast Lavender Bath Bomb – Value $2.08 (buy 12 for $24.99)
All products sourced by Lotion Fast are made in the U.S. and are made by hand! This item feels so personalized and special from bath bombs that you can buy at the grocery store. This particular blend is so fragrant with lavender that helps to create an, even more, relaxing bath experience. Something that every Mom needs!
Verdict: Jennie Garth knocked it out of the park with this first MomGiftBox! I calculated my product value to come in around $115, which is more than double the $49.99 bi-monthly cost. The entire box feels like it was curated just for me with love. Each product focused on either something unique and special just for you or something that you can use daily as a mom. The brands were all ‘new-to-me’ so I was able to really discover products that come with Jennie’s personal stamp of approval! This box would make a great gift to give to your Mom, a friend, a Grandmother, or even a special gift that you give to yourself! I can’t wait to see what Jennie and MomGiftBox have in store next!
