I appreciate that LuxePineapple included an information card describing each item and why it was selected. This month’s LuxePineapple box theme is “Be a Mermaid,” and it featured products from woman-owned small businesses.
The Sugar Shark Collection Bath Fairy Dust in Warm Vanilla – 4 oz. Value $4.99
(There are 4 fragrance options for this product.)
This bath fairy dust is infused with skin-loving ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil, sweet almond oil, and aloe vera. Plus it has a touch of gold shimmer – which didn’t really appear in the bathtub. I’m glad we are getting a little bit of a fall weather here in New York City, giving me a chance to try this product in a warm bath. As I poured about half of the container in my bathtub, it fizzed a little and released a light vanilla scent. I enjoyed the experience and I can’t wait to use the rest next time!
Natural Sea Sponge – Listed Value $5
According to the information card, you can use this sea sponge as a facial or body cleanser, or even for makeup application or removal. This sponge did a good job of lathering my shower cream, however, it’s just too soft for my liking. I prefer my usual konjac sponge more since I feel like I get some exfoliating benefit out of it.
Multi-Strand Tassel Necklace with Charm – Listed Value $20
I tried to find ways to make this necklace work but it just didn’t. The strands tangled, the tassel tangled, it didn’t sit on my decollete, and I couldn’t find any online images that could show me how to wear it. I’m not sure if anyone I know will like the style of this necklace either. Unfortunately, this item is a miss for me. 🙁
Madflowers Body Bronzer – Listed Value $11
This product is chemical-free, made with a blend of natural oils and henna extract. It has a light floral fragrance, absorbed quickly, and added a little bit of ‘color’ and a subtle glow to my skin. However, since I don’t usually use body bronzer, I’m not sure how this product performs compares to other bronzers in the market.
Mini Mermaid Banner – Value $5.50
This mermaid design is printed on a 2”x3” canvas and mounted on wood stretchers. It’s simple and well made, but it doesn’t really go with anything in my apartment so I can’t really make any use out of it. I might gift it to someone in our family though.
Verdict: This month’s LuxePineapple Post has a value of $46.49, which is almost twice the cost of the box. The product is well-curated to the theme, but unfortunately, the items were mostly misses for me, especially the highest value item from the box.
To Wrap Up:
