Now, on to the items!
Spongelle 12 oz Body Lotion – Retail Value $20
(Scents may vary.)
I’ve love Spongelle sponges so much – I can’t believe I didn’t know they made lotions! This papaya scent is fruity and sweet – very fragrant! This was hydrating without being greasy, too.
I did think it was weird for Cosmobox to include a brand two boxes in a row (there was a Spongelle sponge in the January box), but I like this brand, so I’m not complaining.
Lime Crime Matte Velvetines Mini Liquid Lipstick in Riley – Retail Value $14
This is a warm cocoa brown shade with a matte finish. Excellent pigment and staying power, too. Here it is swatched:
Cosmo’s Sexy Sutra Book – Retail Value $19.99
This feels very appropriate in a February box from Cosmo!
We couldn’t take any more pictures of the pages without this becoming an NSFW type of review, but if you’re familiar with Cosmo magazine, you’ll know what to expect! 🙂
Dove Chocolate Cookie Bites – Retail Value $12
These bites are pieces of chocolate chip cookies covered in Dove milk chocolate:
I had some help with taste testing these, and they were a hit. (Very appropriate for a Valentine’s Day box, too!)
Dove Signature Chocolate Martini Mix – Retail Value $22
First, props to CosmoBox for including a cocktail mix in a subscription box. It doesn’t happen often!
This is a thick mix (think of a melted Dove chocolate bar), and you might need to run the bottle under warm water for 60 seconds to make it easier to pour.
To make the cocktail, 4 ounces Dove chocolate mix, 2 ounces vodka, and 2 ounces milk or half and half plus lots of ice. (For a non-alcoholic version, substitute more milk for the vodka.)
This is a sweet, decadent cocktail – kind of like a dessert in a glass!
Verdict: This box has a retail value of $88. I think that’s good for a $25.99 box. This seems like an improvement over the January box, and very much in line with what I would expect a subscription box from Cosmopolitan magazine! Plus it’s nice to see a new women’s lifestyle subscription box that’s under $30 a month since POPSUGAR moved to quarterly.
