This month’s Gift Izzy information card told about Italian designer Caterina Mariani and listed the products sent this month.
Caterina Mariani Bracelets – Listed Value $170.26 USD
These delicate sparkly bracelets are exclusive for Gift Izzy. They aren’t available for sale in the U.S. and retail for 160 Euro. The bracelets were packaged in a stamped Caterina Mariani drawstring bag and were tied together with grosgrain ribbon.
Each bracelet was tied with a skinny leather cord to keep it from tangling and stretching. The bracelets are dainty cuffs and each one has a large sparkly stone. They can be worn individually or stacked together for a stunning look. It’s so nice to have another Gift Izzy exclusive!
Tropical Passion Fruit Syrup from Liber & Co. – Value $10.00
Passion Fruit from Peru is blended with cane sugar to make this fruity and sweet tropical cocktail mixer. Ideally mixed with dark rum for a Hurricane, I didn’t have any rum at home so I tried it plain and it was delicious! I’ll have to get to the liquor store soon so I can try this with something more potent.
Cargo Gel Lip Color – Value $20.00
I’m a big fan of Cargo cosmetics and this paraben free gel lip color glides on smoothly and is highly pigmented. It’s semi-sheer with a satin-like shine finish. Subscribers will receive different colors. I got Barbados which is a bright coral. Unfortunately, this color doesn’t work with my skin tone.
Yes to Cucumbers Paper Mask – Value $2.99
The Yes to Cucumbers Paper Mask is a one-time use sheet mask that is meant to be calming to your skin. I found it had the opposite effect on me. It was burning and I quickly removed it. This might be due to the dry nature of my skin which tends to be sensitive in the winter. Hopefully, the other subscribers have much better luck with this mask!
Verdict: I was thrilled to see Gift Izzy include another exclusive item this month. I think their highest value items are always beautiful, unique and well worth the cost of the box. To me, the other items are just added bonuses. The value is around $203 this month which I’m very happy with. I anticipate receiving this box more than any other women’s lifestyle box. I highly recommend it!
