Rose War Panty Power March 2018 Review
Here’s this month’s welcome card. It’s all flowery and feminine and paired with the sunset scene on the box, makes me yearn for warmer weather! The Rose War team indicated which 4 of the possible 7 gift options are included in my box this month.
Natracare Organic 100% Cotton Tampons with Applicator — Estimated Value $5.00 (Buy a 16-pack of regular size for 8.24, found here for $6.42)
This month, I received 4 Super tampons, 6 Regulars from Natracare per usual, as well as 2 mystery tampons. Subscribers will become very familiar with Natracare tampons as they are included just about every month! They have cardboard applicators and braided strings. I don’t recognize the packaging of the 2 purple tampons, but they’re a bit more compact with plastic wrappers, which would be good for keeping in your purse. I also received 2 panty liners, which I haven’t gotten in a long time. I sometimes use panty liners on days with heavier flow, to reinforce my tampon, or on the very last day of my period, when I mainly just have slightly colored discharge.
Befine Exfoliating Cleanser, 1.5 oz. — Retail Value $15.00
I’ve received Befine products in past Rose War boxes and found the quality to be better than I expected! I hesitate to use exfoliating products on my face, but this one is made with brown sugar as the gritty texture, which is a little more gentle on my skin and better for the environment than microbeads. It feels almost like you’re smoothing honey over your face, which is kind of cool (though there’s no actual honey in it). It’s stickier than I expected but leaves my face feeling refreshed after being rinsed off. I should note that this product isn’t strictly meant for facial use—you can use it on the rest of your body if you wish—but the directions do suggest applying it to your face. Also, this product is made in the USA and cruelty-free, which are two boxes I always like to check off for my beauty products.
Harvey Prince Signature Scent Roll-On Perfume, 8.8ml — Retail Value $23.00
Of all the subscription boxes I’ve explored and amid all the many essential oil roll-ons I’ve received, believe it or not, this is the first actual perfume I’ve gotten. Crazy, right? I’m not a daily perfume-wearer, though often times when I walk past someone who smells good, I wish I was! It just usually doesn’t cross my mind to put it on when I’m getting ready in the morning. Because I’m not so familiar with the world of perfume, I’m not sure how to describe this one’s scent other than pretty classic. From the Harvey Prince website:
“Notes: Fresh Citrus, Japanese Mikan, Pink Grapefruit, Hawaiian Jasmine, Sacred Lotus, Rajnigandha (Tuberose), Japanese Honeysuckle, Exotic Amber, Madagascar Vanilla, & Sexy Patchouli.”
While I do like this scent, I don’t love it enough to work it into my daily routine, I don’t think. Its scent is maybe a little too mature for my style, or maybe a little too classy. So, I’ll pass this one along.
Cougar 6 Shades of Burgundy Countouring Eyeshadow Set — Retail Value About $18.06 (£13.00)
When I first pulled this eyeshadow set out of its box, I wasn’t sure what I was looking at. First of all, it sprayed sparkly pink powder all over my dining room table, and I also just didn’t understand how to apply the “desired shade” (per the directions) from the mixed-up chunks in front of me. Then I realized this was meant to be 6 individual hues that broke in transit! Too bad. Looking at the photos on the Cougar website, I realize I probably would’ve worn one or two of the shades included in this set, but in this state, I think this makeup just has to be thrown away. I rubbed a little on my inner arm so you can see what it would look like if worn as-is. I do sometimes wear a soft pink eyeshadow, but nothing nearly this shimmery. Such a bummer!
The South Bend Chocolate Company Chocolate-Covered Cherries, 20z. — Buy a 3oz. bag for $4.49
While I have a never-ending sweet tooth, these chocolate-covered cherries just don’t appeal to me. Of all the fruits out there, cherries have never been a favorite of mine, and the red-dyed chocolate covering them struck me as artificial-seeming. But, to be a good sport, I gave one a try. It was pretty sweet and a little chewy, and otherwise pretty much what you’d expect. I imagine these would be a real treat for someone who’s more a fan of cherries and is a little more open-minded about their chocolate!
This month’s underwear came folded together and tucked in this protective plastic bag.
Here they are unfolded. I received a mauve lace thong and a pastel pink pair of cotton boyshorts.
Maidenform High-Waisted Boyshort Panties — Estimated Value $5
As some of you who have read my previous Rose War reviews might know, I change my underwear every evening before bed, and this cotton pair is exactly the type I change into. I’m not looking for anything skimpy or sexy—just pure comfort! I would never buy a pair that says “love” in those varsity letters on them for myself, but it doesn’t bother me to the point that I would pass this pair on. They’re already in my top drawer!
Youmita Floral Lace Hipster Thong — Estimated Value $10
This next pair is really beautiful. They’re romantic and feminine with a very vintage-inspired mauve color. I also really like the buttoned back detail. So pretty!
Verdict: This wasn’t my favorite Rose War Panty Power box, but it’s still always great to re-up on tampons, panty liners, and a few cute pairs of undies! The beauty products are of nice quality, and other than the eyeshadow set which arrived broken, are just as nice of a treat for the subscriber as they would be gifts for friends. According to my estimations, the items in my box add up to approximately $80, which is an epic value for a $29.20 box!
