Now, on to the items!


Quilted Cross Body Purse – Value Listed $30

(Subscribers will receive this in black or beige.)

I love a crossbody bag (super functional, no hands needed, and more socially accepted than the fanny pack 🙂 ), but this one was a little bit larger than the bags I typically wear. Here it is on:

I also have no problem with faux leather, but I want it to look like actual leather, and this one looks like polyester material to me.

KARAT Chocolates by Julian Helman – Retail Value $7.00

So pretty! (And chocolates are always welcome in a February box!)

Flavors included:

  • Merlot, Cherry, Black Currant
  • Riesling Ice Wine
  • Chocolate Lava
  • Creme Caramel

I had some help with taste testing these, and everyone loved them. They are as rich and indulgent as they look!

Square Gold Lips Trinket Tray – Value Listed $14.50

This tray measures 4.5 by 4.5 inches – perfect for rings, earrings, lipstick, etc.

The info card also lists that this “kiss” is 10K gold.

Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Floral Toner – Retail Value $12.95

This toner is designed for sensitive skin, the scent is floral (not straight rose like I expected), and the mist is fine, too. You can use this morning and night on a cleansed face, or throughout the day as a makeup refresher, too! (And this brand is ingredient-conscious!)

Kocostar Rose Mask Sheet – Retail Value $6.50

As soon as I pulled out this sheet mask I said, “why hasn’t anyone done this sooner?!” Instead of your standard full face mask, this sheet mask is a set of 12 individual “rose petals”. (Perfect if you want to spot-apply some hydration, or if you just don’t dig wearing full face masks.)

Verdict: This box has a value of about $70.95 US dollars. Considering the US price is around $54.99 a box shipped, I think that’s a good value for a box shipped from a different country. With the rose beauty items, the chocolate, and the kiss tray, this is a thoughtful curation for a February box. And all the items still work after Valentine’s Day, too! 

The only downside to this box is that the purse was a miss for me.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. As of today (2/23), your first box would be the April Box.

Coupon – no coupons available for this subscription.

What do you think about the February White Willow box?

  1. I’ve always wanted to sub to this box but never have because of the shipping cost.

  2. I enjoyed this box. Trading the purse bc I have received so many already this year in other boxes. Took all of two seconds to swap! 🙂 Will always use a good ingredient conscious toner–especially with a nice rose scent. Chocolates were very good and different. Fun to try. The trinket tray is super cute. Love the colors. I have it up for swap only bc I already found a place for my Rachel Zoe gold tray, the “beautiful” tray from PS or somewhere, the gold round bowl from one of my boxes, and a the white with silver metallic modern oval tray from PS. However, if I find a spot for it, I will remove my swap listing and keep it! It’s just so cute. I didn’t notice that the mask is made from individual rose petals. Now I’m even more excited to try it tonight while watching a movie with my hubby. Overall a great box. Agreed, the handbag could have been a higher quality, but perfect for the price point.

  3. Wow. So happy I cancelled. Used to be a wonderful box – I guess another one goes downhill.

    • Yeah wow, this box has gone downhill. It has been on my radar to sub to it, based off previous boxes they used to be beautiful… i would have been p*ssed off had i paid that much for this particular box.

  4. The face mask sounds interesting to me also. I do not like masks because they are cold and wet. Did I say cold? Would love to try one with different pieces. The candy sounded delicious and looked delicious.

    • Cold and wet is why we use them. The sheet mask is my daily reward for an hour of exercise.

  5. This is my second WW box. I live in Canada and it cost me CAD $65 with shipping and taxes. I hate the bag – both the style and material (being no name doesn’t help, either). The chocolates and mask look like bonus items in such an expensive box. The catch-all tray looks tacky to me (no box = can’t
    be gifted). The toner is the only useful thing for me.

    I disagree with the value they listed, as well. I cancelled my subscription.

    • Just from the pictures, that bag looks really cheap and not well-made. I also think the tray looks tacky. This box feels like it was thrown together with fillers.

  6. I’d love to swap for the purse! Just click on my name. 😉

  7. That face mask sounds genius! I’m not usually a fan of sheet masks because they always slip and slide on me!
