Now, on to the items!
This is one of my favorite subscription box beauty discoveries!
If you aren’t familiar with Spongelle, you are in for a treat! It infused with body wash, and the sponge is firmer than your typical bath pouf, so you get exfoliation added in, as well! (And it should last for at least 14 uses!)
Namaste In Bed Mug – Value Listed $12
(There is no brand for this mug, so I’m using the value listed on the card.)
This ceramic mug is 11 oz, microwave and dishwasher safe.
Satin Eye Mask – Value Listed $12
(There is no brand for this eye mask, so I’m using the value listed on the card.)
Cute mask, but sadly it feels like an inexpensive one. The band isn’t adjustable, so it’s a little tight on my head, too. (And this is being SUPER nitpicky, but I think this is a different mask than the one they are showing in the promotional images for this box.)
LAFCO Classic Candle in Marine – 5.53 oz Value Listed $35
(Subscribers will either receive this Marine scent or the Lavender Chamomile scent.)
The candle is a soy-wax blend with a 40 hour burn time. And it comes in a handblown art glass vessel, that you can reuse – it’s the palest blue and so pretty!
The marine scent is light and clean – I love it. This is hands down my favorite item in the box.
(One thing worth noting – the candle packaging doesn’t have the typical LAFCO labeling, so that might make it less giftable for some. And the LAFCO packaging was shown in the promotional images for this box.)
Satva Headband – Value Listed $10
The fabric for this headband is made from Organic cotton, and the dyes are natural and plant-based. (Recycled fabric scraps from other Satva clothing.) And my favorite part? It’s a wide headband that stays put! Perfect for working out or sheet masks! 🙂
And it also comes with a coupon for 30% off your first purchase:
Verdict: This box has a retail value of $85. I think that’s good for a $25.99 box. And the Spongelle, candle, and headband are all great items for me, and worth well over the cost of the box. I’m also impressed that CosmoBox put together a box with such a good value that doesn’t include makeup!
That being said, the eye-mask cheapened this box a bit for me, and nothing in this box is very original when it comes to the subscription box world. But, nothing wrong with playing it safe for your first box, and I’m excited to see what’s coming in February!
