Each box includes information on each featured item and pictures, too.

Now, on to the items!

Le Meadow’s Pantry Handcrafted Preserves in Orange Blossom Marmalade – Listed Value $8.50

This is an all-natural, preservative-free marmalade. It’s made with orange and lemon slices, “suspended in a light jelly with delicate notes of French orange blossom water and fresh bay leaves.”

Here’s a better look at the fruit pieces:

I found the flavors to be light, and not too sweet – very fancy! White Willow recommends pairing this with a French Baguette and sharp cheddar, Gouda, or Goat cheese. (And I recommend adding a glass of Rosé, too!) 🙂

Abbott Bon Vivant European Linen Placemats in Dove (Set of 4) – Value Listed $32.50

(Subscribers will either receive this shade or Lilac, Sky Blue, Ecru, or Blush.)

These placemats are my favorite item in the box! They are 100% linen, machine washable, the color works with everything, and the tiny pom trim keeps the design interesting!

Earth Luxe Coconut Deodorant – Retail Value $9.95

This deodorant formula is made with naturally derived ingredients and is Aluminum, Paraben, and Propylene Glycol free.

It goes on clear and has a faint coconut scent. I’ve been using natural deodorant on non-workout days, and I’m happy to add this to my rotation – no skin irritation so far!

Entyze Cucumber Martini Eye Serum – Value Listed $14.99

This eye serum is made from a short list of all natural ingredients. It’s lightweight, feels great on my skin, and the rollerball applicator is great, too.

Cheri Arome Pink Clay Massage Soap – Value Listed $6.95

This is described as a massage soap bar for both face and body. The formula is made with pink clay and coconut oil, and it felt lovely on my skin – and it didn’t strip my skin of any oil. There is sea salt embedded in the soap to add exfoliation, but I thought it might be a little too harsh for your face, so I’d recommend using this on your body only.

Verdict: This box has a value of about $72.89 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. I thought this was a good mix of home/food items and beauty items, and I appreciate that White Willow seems to send primarily ingredient conscious beauty and food items. This isn’t a high-value subscription box, but if you like the curation, I recommend it.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. As of today (6/21), your first box would be the August Box.

Coupon – no coupons available for this subscription.

What do you think about the June White Willow box?

  1. Those linen placemats look lovely and I am really curious about the eye serum! Pity they do not ship to Europe.

  2. If anyone wants to sell or trade your gray linen placemats, I will buy them!!!! Kathleen dot Nunn at g mail dot com

  4. They lost me with the repulsive and cheap cross body bag in February. So another once great box goes downhill.

    • I couldn’t believe my eyes when I pulled that thing out.

  5. I loved everything in this box! I have never been disappointed with them or their customer service.

    • Yes, customer service is indeed phenomenal and is the best part of this box.

  6. I just subscribed to this, starting with this box. Their customer service is outstanding. I contacted them to see if I could select my linen color and they let me do that. They also offered a mystery box as my first box but I opted for this. I’m in the US and they ship expedited, so it got to me super quick. I’ll use everything in this box so it’s very practical for me so far. Thank White Willow!

    • That’s so great! Love hearing good customer care stories! 🙂

  7. That massage soap looks like a pastry and I want to eat it. 😊

    • My husband saw it and thought it was a pastry. His face sank as the realization sank in. LOL!

  8. CAD $20 maximum and only if I like all the items in the box. I like none.

    I looked up their boxes from the December 2015 and think that up until they became bi-monthly, the boxes were consistently well curated and the value was good. The honeymoon lasted 6 months.
