Now, on to the items!

Glowing Orchid 100% Natural Deodorant in Pink Grapefruit & Bergamot – Value $18

I’m all about natural ingredients when possible, but a lot of natural deodorants don’t work for me. But! I haven’t tried this one before! (And I was already excited to see that it is in stick form instead of in a jar!)

The grapefruit and bergamot scent is fantastic! If they made a candle version of this deodorant I would buy it! So far, it seems to be working for me, too. (I haven’t put it to a sweat-breaking workout test yet, but it’s good for a standard day. No irritation, either.)

Red Lemon The Dream Clean Green Tea Cleansing Grains – Value $16

This is a fine-grain cleanser that almost resembles sand. You add water to make a paste, and then you are good to go!

It’s a gentle exfoliator, and I love the all-natural ingredients, too. The scent is subtle, but it’s a nice mix of oats and peppermint. (And this is a BIG container for this type of cleanser! It should last for months!)

Wildly Delicious Sundried Tomato & Basil Cuisine Oil – Value $8

This is one of my favorite discoveries in the box! Eric and I are cutting way back on sodium, and that usually means cutting out a lot of traditional Italian food. But this sun-dried tomato and basil oil is sodium-free! It tastes fantastic, too. (They recommend using it on hot or cold pastas, bruschettas, salad, etc.)

Ceramic Bird Napkin Holder – Value $18

This ceramic set is designed to keep napkins in place on windy days! And White Willow even included napkins:

This is cute but doesn’t fit my design style. (The good news is that one of my friends collects anything with an adorable bird on it, so I think I just found a perfect gift for her!)

Twist Multi Strand Bracelet – Value $15

Subscribers will receive one of three shades: peach, lilac, or green.

The bracelet measures approximately 7 inches long, and the materials are hypoallergenic, nickel-free, and cadmium-free.

And the best part?

Magnet clasp! Why don’t more all bracelets come with a magnet clasp?

Verdict: This box has a value of about $75 US dollars. Considering the US price is around $43.60 a box shipped, I think that’s a great value for a box shipped from a different country. I’m really impressed with the mix of items, and I don’t feel like any of the values were inflated either.

What do you think about the August White Willow box?

  1. A sub to keep my eye on. I agree with Ann, this seems like PSMH’s older, more sophisticated sister.

  2. Great box! Love the variety and usefulness of the items.

  3. That napkin holder is adorable, I love it.

  4. I’ve used natural deodorant for about a year now and I’ll never go back. I’ve tried many brands, but not this kind yet! My favorite was from Honest Co, but they discontinued it, much to my dismay. Anyway, I just wanted to say, natural deodorants are NOT antiperspirants and you should expect to sweat when using them. Sweating is natural and good. Antiperspirants work by literally clogging your pores with aluminum. Sweat alone does not smell bad; deodorants work by neutralizing the bacteria that stinks when mixed with your sweat. Many are made with essential oils to add a touch of fragrance. Bergamot is my personal favorite!

  5. You can buy magnetic clasps at any jewelry supply store, even Michaels, and they are very easy to swap for regular clasps! I use them all the time for quick changes involving jewelry in theater.

  6. I love this box – it’s refinement at a reasonable price. I subscribe to lots, and this has got to be my favorite.

  7. I’m confused about the shipping– if it is $14.57 to US that would bring the box /shipping total to almost $52, not $43.60…

    • It’s 49.95 CAD (about 37.31 USD) plus shipping of 6.35 USD to the US.

      • I am looking where it states the shipping is $14.57 (US) TO the US– the $6.35 USD is to Canada– this is why I’m confused.

  8. This feels like PSMH’s older sister. I need to subscribe to this one. PSMH for me is too hit or miss unless I get it on a good promotion. This would be perfect.
