Now, on to the items!

 

Simi Accessories Floral Spring Scarf – Retail Value $16

I’m loving the print and colors of this scarf – it is perfect for spring.

The fabric is lightweight and sheer but I couldn’t find any tag on this scarf, so I’m not sure about the material composition.

It measures approximately 35 by 72 inches.

Scentuals Hand Repair Cream in Grapefruit Tumeric – Retail Value $10.49

(Subscribers will either receive this scent, or Rosemary Mint, or Coconut Cocoa Butter. This item has an inner foil seal.)

This hand cream is officially one of my favorite discoveries of the month! I love that it is made with organic + natural ingredients (no artificial fragrance), and the formula is so rich and hydrating. Plus the grapefruit scent is fantastic!

Demasuri Rice Milk Brightening Face Exfoliator – Retail Value $29.99

This exfoliator left my skin feeling exceptionally smooth and clean. And it was gentle on my skin, too. To use, you apply a few pumps to damp skin, then massage in a circular motion until rolls form, then rinse with water. Easy!

Accents de Ville Pebble Candles – Value Listed $11.50

These tea light sized candles are shaped like pebbles!

They are made with palm wax and unscented.

I’m trying to think of the right way to display/use them. I’m thinking a glass bowl with a combination of actual pebbles and these could look great. Let me know if you have any ideas!

Chez Christophe Parmigiano Flutes – Retail Value $4.80

I love that these are made with simple, natural ingredients.

They are light, buttery and flakey flutes – perfect to pair with a glass of wine.

Verdict: This box has a value of about $72.78 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. Both beauty items are hits for me, I actually thought the scarf would have a higher retail value (it’s so beautiful), and the candles and cheese sticks are a nice addition. 

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. As of today (4/16), your first box would be the June Box.

Coupon – no coupons available for this subscription.

  1. I adore that scarf! but it is not available on the Simi Accesories website (?) 🙁

    If anybody got this on their box and it is still unused because they do not like it, happy to take it off their hands. I can pay via Paypal in advance or I can send photos of my handbag collection and we can swap the scarf for one of my handbags.

  2. I’m thinking those candles would be so cute in a glass bowl (or some sort of vase) with other pebbles like Liz suggested on a porch or patio. They are perfect for outdoors.

  3. I am so glad I have unsubscribed from this box after receiving two. I am sick of no-name acrylic ponchos, polyester scarves, fake leather bags, tiny chocolates, wholesale jewelry and candles/candleholders. Everything is cheap, except for skincare, which you may or may not like.
    You can buy the contents of the whole box at Winners or TJ Maxx for $30.

    Their LE boxes are much better, though still expensive.

  4. I have debated on this box forever but haven’t pulled the trigger yet.

  5. I’m not usually a scarf person but that one really is very pretty. It looks perfect for welcoming spring, too. This box will be going on my must watch list.

    • I have had this sub before and have noticed this company has exceptional customer service. Their boxes were always a nice treat and packaged so beautifully.

      • I agree. But the boxes are very repetitive. It seems each box has a hand or body cream, a makeup item, a scarf or piece of jewelry, a snack made in Canada and some type of small home item like a candle or ring dish. I got this box when they were monthly. When they went to every other month the boxes didn’t improve even when the price went up.

        I mean It was nice but not wow or the value of PSMH or FFF
