Margot Elena Discovery Box – Summer 2018 Review
The Seasonal Discovery box from Margot Elena is a quarterly subscription box featuring full-size beauty and lifestyle items. (If you aren’t familiar with this brand, it’s carried in stores like Anthropologie.)
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
On the inside of the box is a letter from Margot Elena:
In general, the packaging is fab, and this would be a great box to send as a gift!

This box comes with a card detailing all the items included:
Now, on to the items!
Margot Elena Infinite Beauty Nail Color in Love is All – Retail Value $15
(Just a heads up, the packaging on all the products in this box is so lovely – expect more pictures than usual!)
This nail polish formula is 7-free, and I got full coverage in one coat!
It’s a high-gloss creme, and I was impressed with how quickly it dried. (I’d still recommend doing 2 coats + a top coat to avoid chipping, though.)
TokyoMilk Dead Sexy Bon Bon Shea Butter Lotion – Retail Value $20
This lotion is fragrant, absorbs quickly, and provides moisture without any greasy finish.
One one side the lotion is all business, and on the other side, the “Dead Sexy” part is in full force:
The lotion has notes of Deep Vanilla, Exotic Wood, White Orchid, and Ebony. It’s a lovely scent, and a little goes a long way!
The Cottage Greenhouse Cucumber & Honey Relaxing Bath Soak – Retail Value $12
More adorable packaging! I love the wooden spoon and cork top!
The cucumber + honey scent is light and lovely, too.
The Cottage Greenhouse Dry Body Oil – Retail Value $24
OMG! This is probably my favorite scent in the box. I don’t come across a lot of ginger-scented beauty items, but I wish I did because this is divine!
The scent isn’t too strong, the oil is light and absorbs quickly – all in all, this is a perfect summer body oil.
TokyoMilk Dark Pretty Rotten Lip Elixir – Retail Value $7
Green tea + jasmine = another fabulous scent!
This lip balm is moisturizing without adding too much shine. (If you aren’t a fan of lip balms in tins, this could double as a cuticle balm.)
Margot Elena Rhassoul Clay Face Masque – Retail Value $12
How gorgeous is this mask packaging?
The mask is a powder that you mix with water, and it comes in a resealable pouch:
It’s 100% natural, and there are many uses in this pouch. Just add water to make a paste, apply to your skin, and remove once it dries. Easy!
(And the instructions are on the inside of the package, too.)
This was gentle on my skin, and easy to use – I’m happy!
The Cottage Greenhouse Rosemary Mint Foot Cream – Retail Value $28
I realize I keep saying this, but this is another amazing scent! The peppermint scent is so refreshing!
This is a decadent cream – it’s super hydrating and takes a while to absorb. (This would probably be great to wear with socks overnight.)
Lollia Poetic License Fine Perfumed Soap in Sleeping Under the Stars – Retail Value $8
Next up, we have three fancy soaps from the Lollia line!
This first soap is a blend of sandalwood and honeyed vanilla.
Lollia Poetic License Fine Perfumed Soap in Velvet as Night – Retail Value $8
This scent is a blend of rose milk and frankincense.
Lollia Poetic License Fine Perfumed Soap in Score from the End Credits – Retail Value $8
And the last soap is described as a “fresh, twilight musk.” It’s probably my favorite out of the three!
The Cottage Greenhouse Rosemary Mint Foot Scrub – Retail Value $26
This pairs perfectly with the foot cream – it’s the same lovely refreshing peppermint! And the scrub is equal parts exfoliating + moisturizing. A+!
Margot Elena Honeycomb Striped Turkish Towel – Retail Value $44
If you’ve read enough of my subscription box reviews, you know I can never have enough Turkish towels! (They are great for beach/pool towels, or even throwing on the arm of a couch for a little nautical decor.) This is another great one to add to the collection! (It’s 100% cotton and machine wash cold.)
It’s a good size, too. Here I am holding it up to give you a better sense of scale:
Neptune & The Mermaid Gold Foil Print Postcard Set – Retail Value $8
Lastly, this box included 3 postcards!
Each of these postcards features gold foil detail, and I think would be lovely framed!
Verdict: I am SO impressed with this box! A $220 value for $49.99? With high-quality and beautiful products? Yes, please! All day, every day! I can’t recommend this one enough. It’s a perfect gift for yourself, and I love that everything is full size!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. As of today (6/22), your first box would be the Fall Box. (I recommend signing up soon as this box keeps selling out.)
