And a cocktail recipe for Frose (frozen rose):

Now, on to the items!

 

W&P Design Large 16 oz. Pineapple Tumbler – Value $99

I have a few pineapple drink items from W&P Design, and I was excited to add this to my collection, but it doesn’t seem as useful as the other pieces.

For one thing, the top is heavier than the base, which is fine on the other glasses, but since this is designed to be used with the included straw and the top on, it’s a little top-heavy.

And if you notice the inside metal of the top and the base – they are different. This results in the outside metals looking slightly different. (Not a big deal to me, but if I was paying the full retail price of $99 for this tumbler, I would be disappointed.)

P. F. Candle Co. No. 29: PIÑON – Value $18

(7.2 oz, with a burn time of 40-50 hours.)

This is one of my favorite items in the box! The scent is perfect for winter. It’s a blend of pine, balsam fir, cinnamon, amber, vanilla, and cedarwood. The candle is made with 100% soy wax and phthalate-free fragrance, too.

Sugarfina Champagne Bears – Value $8.50

I love gummies, and these Sugarfina ones are amazing! And they are made with Dom Pérignon Vintage Champagne so you can feel super classy about eating an entire little box of gummies in under 5 minutes, right?

The set includes a mix of Brut and Rose gummy bears!

(Also, if you love Sugarfina as much as I do – just FYI – they now have a Sanrio collection!)

Davines OI Hand Balm – FULL SIZE! Value $20

I previously have only sampled Davines hair care products, and this hand cream lives up to the quality of the rest of the brand! It’s moisturizing but not greasy and left my hands feeling super soft. I’m having a hard time describing the scent, but if you like the scent of their hair products, I think you’ll like this, too!

Oribe Balmessence Lip Treatment – FULL SIZE! Value $35

I was expecting a super luxe lip balm from Oribe, and they delivered! This lip treatment is super moisturizing and it doesn’t have much of a sheen, so it’s great for everyday wear.

Verdict: This box has a value of about $180.50. I think that’s good for the $62 cost, and even better if you use coupon code TAKE15 and get it for $52.70. Despite my issues with the tumbler, I think this would be a great box for a gift – it’s a nice mix of home and beauty items, and the beauty items are non-makeup, so they should work for almost everyone.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box today? Yep. This one-time purchase box is still available as of 11/11!

  • Candle: $6.18
  • Sugarfina Gummy Bears: $2.91
  • Davines Hand Balm: $6.87

  1. Liz, are you sure the candle is the 7.2 oz one? The last PF Candle .birchbox sent out was only 3.5 oz…

    • Just double checked the label on the bottom of the candle – it says 7.2 oz!

  2. The lip balm value is ridiculous as well. It’s basically Carmex that smells better.

  3. What sort of occasion requires a pineapple tumbler? I am assuming a pool and a popsugar inflatable swan are involved.

    • You never know when Captain Stubing is going to drop by.

      • Awe, love someone who knows nostalgic Tv like I do.

  4. 99.00 for a pineapple shaped cup? That is one of the most laughable retail values yet. Even more ridiculous than Fabfitfun claiming the Doucce eyeshadow palette is worth 70.00. This box is worth maybe 25.00 at most.

    • Yes, it is pretty ridiculous! The eye shadow in particular though!
      Honestly, I love the pineapple thing but wouldn’t get this box unless it was closer to 30 or less!

      • Correction…I find the “lip treatment” the most ridiculous I mean it’s ONLY lip balm! Smh, it’s like call it treatment + a fancy looking container and you can up charge 25-30 bucks more!

    • I saw pineapple cup at TJMaxx for less than $20.

      • I was just going to say this too. I almost bought on multiple occasions but my BF and voice of reason helped me realize I don’t really need it. If it were cheaper than TJ Maxx prices then sure! Lol

  5. So going to get this at the next aces sale.
