Rosario Dawson Quarterly Box Review #18902

Rosario Dawson Quarterly Box Review #18902 Box

The Rosario Dawson Quarterly Box was probably one of the boxes I was most excited to get my hands on this seasons – it includes 31 items for an advent calendar theme!

This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Rosario Dawson Quarterly Box Review #18902 Bag

Studio 189 Oversized Tote – Value $250?

I couldn’t find this exact same tote on Studio 189’s site, but I linked to one that I believe is the same size. This is my favorite item in the box. I love the colors and the extra large size is so useful. Plus the straps are reinforced, so I think I could carry a lot with this!  Also, the mission behind this brand is wonderful:

STUDIO ONE EIGHTY NINE is a social enterprise created by Rosario Dawson and Abrima Erwiah that consist of creatives that seeks to provide a platform to help promote and curate African and African-inspired content through an ecommerce shopping site, a supporting agency and an artisan produced fashion collection, called FASHION RISING COLLECTION, launched in support of V-Day’s One Billion Rising. We focus on creating opportunities for empowerment, education and employment of artisans and creatives.
Together we represent countries all over Africa and its Diaspora. Created by Rosario Dawson and Abrima Erwiah, the mission of Studio One Eighty Nine and the idea for Fashion Rising, took shape following a trip with V-Day in February, 2011, through Kenya, Burundi and Rwanda to Bukavu in the Democratic Republic of Congo for the opening of the City of Joy.

Rosario Dawson Quarterly Box Review #18902 Coach

Coach Double Zip Leather Wristlet – Value $68

You can’t go wrong sending a beautiful and classic leather Coach wristlet in a subscription box! This is one of those items that I really like but also know it would make an amazing gift, so I’m not sure if I’m keeping it yet.

Rosario Dawson Quarterly Box Review #18902 Coasters

Studio 189 Coasters – Value $15?

Occult Crimes TaskForce Playing Cards – Value $10?

Under Armour Hair Ties – Value $10

The coasters and playing cards are really interesting – but I can’t find them for sale online so I’m just guessing on the values. And the Under Armour hair ties will come in handy!

I like that Rosario always includes items from her latest projects – I really want to see Top Five!

Rosario Dawson Quarterly Box Review #18902 Honest

Honest Hand Soap in Lemongrass – Value $5

Honest Fruit + Veggie Wash – Value $7

I love Honest products so I’m always happy to have more. I’m pretty surprised that these items arrived in perfect condition though! Normally when I order through the Honest Company the hand soap is packaged in its own plastic bag to account for some leakage in shipping – which almost always happens!

Rosario Dawson Quarterly Box Review #18902 Bobble

Studio 189 Sunglasses Bag – Value $30?

Bobble Sport Bottle – Value $11

I already received a bobble sport bottle from the Bianca Jade Quarterly box (and thanks to subscription boxes I have more bottles than I will ever need), so this one will go to a friend. The sunglasses case I will use though – I like the bright blue colors!

Rosario Dawson Quarterly Box Review #18902 Daredevil

Daredevil Mini Poster

My husband and I watch Arrow and The Flash, so we’re looking forward to NetFlix releasing this series!

Rosario Dawson Quarterly Box Review #18902 Rent

I’m not much of a musical person, so this is going to my cousin who I know will absolutely love it!

Rosario Dawson Quarterly Box Review #18902 Spoon

Stuffed Peppers Recipe and a Wooden Spoon

(We’re getting into the stocking stuffer/advent calendar little gift and item portion of the box, so I won’t be commenting on everything).

Rosario Dawson Quarterly Box Review #18902 Balm

ProBCAA Supplement, Blowfish for Hangovers, and Honest Co. Organic Healing Balm

This healing balm is great, and my mom loves it even more than I do, so this is going in her gift pile! (And maybe this hangover “cure” will come in handy on January 1st!)

Rosario Dawson Quarterly Box Review #18902 Random

More of the little toys and games included.

Rosario Dawson Quarterly Box Review #18902 Chocolate

And I saved the treat for last – Henry Lambertz Premium Chocolates and Cookies – Value $15?

These look delicious – I will be gifting them tomorrow!

Verdict: This was a really fun box to go through. I like that there are some really great quality pieces, some practical pieces, some silly pieces, and some box exclusives. Plus the value is well over $400! And if that wasn’t good enough, the proceeds of this box go toward getting water filters for cleaner water in West Africa!

What do you think of the latest Rosario Dawson Quarterly box?

  1. I saw the spoilers on MUT (google MakeUpTalk Forum Rosario Dawson). Now I wish I didn’t cancel.

  2. Just opened my new Spring 2015 Rosario Box. It is AWESOME!!!!

    • No!!!! PARTY FOUL!!! You cannot just be vague and say the Spring box is awesome and just leave us hanging like this!!!! LOL.

      • Ha ha! I agree with Raquel – what’s in the Spring Box?? And is it still available?

        I just discovered sub boxes and this site in Feb and this is one I’ve never noticed or looked at – there are soooo many boxes!

        But I would have LOVED this December box! Now I have another box to add to my “Want” / watch list. 🙂

      • heat7918 – Email Quarterly and ask if there is a box available. They should be able to send one out right away.

    • Really? I’m kinda disappointed. Seems like a bunch of random junk (and this coming from someone who LOVED the last box.) Raquel, spoiler pics on MUT

  3. So I just cancelled my subscription for this box. I received an email stating that the box would ship early this week. checked and there still is no tracking number. So I am done. I am not a fan of companies who promise things and don’t deliver

    • Sandra – It looked like it shipped. Did you contact them for a tracking number? It can take Quarterly a few days to send out the tracking number.

      • I was charged for it yesterday so i would check if you even actually cancelled it. assuming i’ll get it next week at this point.

      • Thanks for letting me know. They are so irritating. I am gonna check my card right now. 🙂

  4. Hi!! I keep reading about a MSA quarterly box?? Where do I subscribe for that one??

  5. Wow this is AMAZING. I wish I had known about it then. Her first box was.. very underwhelming, but this one is awesome. I just subscribed for her next one, supposed to ship this month.. hopefully it is just as good as this one!

  6. Did anyone in Canada received Thiers yet? this is my first Quarterly box I was wondering if it was suppose to take this long to get here.

  7. This box sold me on subscribing but it looks like I will be receiving the new one to launch in January. Does anyone have this box #18902 that they are willing to sell? I think it is awesome. [email protected]

  8. If anyone wants to buy this box, I am willing to sell mine.

    • Can you contact me.. Judydesigns @ gmail

    • Hi Lauren, I’m interested. Email samariaford at hotmail

  9. I had signed up for this box as soon as I heard there would be 31 items in it and then cancelled when Quarterly couldn’t live up to their shipping promises. I’m glad I cancelled. I already own the Honest items and the only other thing worth anything to me is the Coach clutch. I mean, some of the small stuff is really…well, it would go straight into the garbage at my house. It’s not worth putting the effort into swapping it. I thought the Under Armour item would be a tank or something. I’m in my 30’s, I don’t put posters on my walls… when they said 31 items this was NOT what I had in mind. I don’t know what I expected for $50. Maybe my expectations were too high. I guess I felt like I’d be the target audience for this curator and I was so wrong and that’s what’s extra disappointing.

  10. What ever happened with the raffle?

    • They held the raffle and posted pictures on Twitter of the winner at the movie premiere.

  11. This was my first one and I absolutely loved it!!!
