“Unicorn Magic” is the theme for August, and the info card looks super cute and magical. I love all the pastels!
Soul Sunday Unicorn Aromatherapy Roller, 10 ml – Value $18.00
After seeing all of the sugary sweet cupcake colors of the other items in this box, I thought that this rollerball would be more of a vanilla scent. Instead, it’s a rejuvenating mix of peppermint and lavender blended with coconut oil and MCT oil. The peppermint overpowers the lavender a little more than I’d like, but I also love the soothing, refreshing scent of peppermint. It’s great to pop on my pulse points in the midst of a long work day. It just kind of perks me up like a hot cup of coffee.
Soul Candy Chakra Diffuser Stone in Blue (Throat Chakra) – Value $4.57 (Buy the full set of 7 stones for $32.00 on the Soul Candy site)
The info card lists this at $5.00 rather than $4.57, but I attribute that to the item being currently on sale on the Soul Candy site and being sold in a set (I’m just dividing by seven to find the value of just one stone). This is basically a little ceramic disc that’s been pressed with the symbol for the throat chakra in the center. According to the info card, the idea is to put a few drops of your favorite essential oil in the center depression, then set the disc on the chakra location on your body to strengthen your meditation. The throat chakra is all about communication, so as a writer, I’m always eager to strengthen that aspect of my life. Plus, this time of the year, allergies, in combination with my wacky sinuses, tend to send my throat into a tizzy, so hopefully, this ritual will help me at least acknowledge and release some of the stress I carry in that zone.
Goddess Provisions Exclusive Awaken Essential Oils Rainbow Energy Inhaler – Listed Value $12.00
I’ve never seen a little aromatherapy gadget like this, but I love the idea! The tube is about the size and shape of a lip balm, so it’s easy to stow in a purse or pocket. The info card says “Place to your nose and breathe in.” And so I did. Lovely! This scent is full of flowery citrus notes that gently shake my brain awake after a few hours staring at a computer in my office.
So, first, a bit of side-eye at the listed value of this item. $11.00 would make sense for a super high-quality brush, but for a lightweight novelty brush like this one, that seems really high. There are a couple sets like this one that I saw online, but only one of them was listed for more than $20.00 (and that’s a multiple piece set that comes in an awesome iridescent diamond-shaped case).
All of that said, this is a pretty solid brush and a very cute design. The super lightweight plastic handle is pale purple and twists like a unicorn horn. I particularly love the rainbow of pastel fibers that make up the brush itself. It’ll be great for throwing on a quick sweep of powdered highlighter in the mornings.
Sweetapolita Twinkle Sprinkles – Value $9.00
Is there anything quite as fun as sprinkles? Wait, there is. It’s metallic sprinkles like the silver stars mixed into this blue and purple bottle. These sprinkles feel like eating magic. They’re so pretty and add a much appreciated gentle pop of sugar to whatever I add them to. In addition to being adorable and delicious, they’re also gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian (though they do contain soy, in case that’s a concern in your diet). I’m no baker, but now that I have these yummy sprinkles on hand, I’m totally adding a pinch to my morning yogurt, a dessert-y scoop of cashew butter, or even on top of a foamy latte to make these healthier indulgences feel a little more fun (though I’m sure they’d be best on a fresh, frosted cupcake).
Self-Care Isn’t Selfish Sticker – Listed Value $4.00
This sticker is about the size of a business card. It’s got a great glossy sheen, which helps the pastel “medicines” inside the jar really pop. What a great message this sticker sends! The suggestions for how to go about your self-care are all so sweet, too—I think my favorites are “go outside”, “talk to a friend”, and of course, “take a nap”!
Let’s Put a Bird on It Unicorn Dust Highlighter, 0.5 oz – Value $12.00
I was surprised to find that this “dust” isn’t dust at all, but a creamy balm that you can blend onto your cheekbones, eyes, brow-bones, nose, or wherever else you want the light to catch. It’s subtle and sparkly—it starts out looking a little chalky, but as it catches the heat of your skin, it fades into a barely-there pearlescent shine with a nice amount of fairytale twinkle. I know this is technically a highlighter, but I could see using this all over my eyelids for a party look. The best part? This cream is made with flower-infused oils, a few organic ingredients, and it’s cruelty-free, too.
Crystal Rose Amethyst Orgone Wand – Listed Value $18.00
The last item in the box is a wand full of rose, amethyst, and crystal quartz. I’m not sure if they’re encased in glass or plastic, but the wand has a nice weight to it and is comfortable to hold. It’s a little over 4 inches long, so it can easily fit into a drawer or join a little collection of other cherished crystals on your desk or side table. The info card even suggests using it to massage your feet, hands, neck, shoulders, or back!
Verdict: This was a really fun, playful Goddess Provisions box! The box was only $33 per month, but I got about $78.00 worth of products inside! I do think some of the listed values were a little off, but it still was more than worth it to me. I really liked the mixture of playful beauty items and awesome, invigorating aromas. And it’s hard not to love a box filled with pretty pastels!
