Now, on to the items!
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.)
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!)
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.
