Serum Closed Serum Opened

Modern Skyn Reborn Serum, 1 oz – Buy a 2 oz. bottle for $66 (found on sale here for $33), Listed Value $38.50

Reborn Moisturizing Serum contains organic herb-infused oils including hemp oil which I use frequently on my hair and scalp. Having dry and acne prone skin, I’m always skeptical of facial oils and worry that they will clog my pores and leave my skin greasy. This oil was surprisingly not greasy at all. I applied a small amount, it absorbed quickly into my skin, and left my face looking moisturized. My skin was not dry at all and I had no irritation.

Face Wash Front Face Wash Back

Veise Beauty Hydrating Face Wash, 5.2 oz – Retail Value $24

This was my favorite product of the box! The hydrating face wash contains simple ingredients: honey, apple cider vinegar, marula and geranium oils, and glycerin. Veise does a great job of describing the benefits of each ingredient in the wash. On initial application, it didn’t feel like a facial cleanser. It’s not sudsy and felt more like a facial treatment than a wash. Also, the ACV smell is strong! But, I stuck with it and when I rinsed my face, it was visibly brighter and felt so hydrated. I’m impressed and will continue to use this product!

Moon Perfume 1 Moon Perfume 2

Gypsy Soul Organics Moon Perfume, 2 oz – Retail Value $19.99

If you love soft and romantic floral scents, you’ll love this all-natural perfume. It contains ylang-ylang, one of my favorite essential oils to diffuse. Also, rose, jasmine and lavender. I enjoy floral scents in the air but find them too heavy to wear. I plan to use this perfume to spritz my sheets fresh out of the dryer or on my throw pillows and blankets.

Cards Opened Cards Closed

The Happy Shoppe Daily Dose of Self Care Activity Cards – Retail Value $18

The Daily Dose of Self Care box contains 30 activity cards with various self-care activities. Most activities can be completed in less than 15 minutes. Some examples include practicing mindful eating, setting your intention for the day and showing appreciation to 3 people. I pulled the ‘unplug’ card that recommends disconnecting from social media for 24 hours. I’ll start with 1 hour! These cards are a great way to incorporate self-care into your daily routine.

Eye Mask Front Eye Mask Back

The Happy Shoppe Lavender Satin Eye Mask – Listed Value $15

There are a few things I love about this lavender satin eye mask. First and most importantly, it’s large enough to completely block out any light. Second, it’s filled with dried lavender, so it smells fantastic. It also ties in the back so you can adjust it to your preferred comfort level with no worries about it being too tight or too loose. And finally, the back of the mask has a soft velvet-like texture. This mask is perfect for rest and relaxation.

Inhaler Closed Inhaler Opened

Meadow Sense Breathe Well Inhaler – Retail Value $10

This is my first introduction to aromatherapy inhalers. The Meadow Sense Breathe Well inhaler contains a fresh blend of essential oils including sweet orange, eucalyptus, and tea tree oils. It smells great, but it feels awkward to use. I can’t imagine pulling the bright purple casing from my purse, putting it to my nose and inhaling deeply in public. I can only imagine the looks on my co-workers’ face! I’ll reserve this pretty case and uplifting scent for at-home use.

Body Butter Closed Body Butter Opened

Be Loved Box BeSeduced Whipped Body Butter, 1.5 oz – Retail Value $7

Be Loved whipped body butter has all the ingredients for a really good butter with various types of butter and oils. It’s lightly fragranced with the sandalwood scent being the most pronounced. I found that the butter easily melts but doesn’t spread very far. I’d need to use a lot of it if applying head to toe. Unfortunately, the portion size is very small and the jar was only half full. I’ll leave this on my desk and use it as a hand cream. Inhaling the fresh scent of the butter while taking a few deep breaths could be an easy way to relax in between meetings.

Face Mask Front Face Mask Back

Package Don’t Worry Healing Mask – Retail Value $5.99

This Korean healing mask has a huge following! Based on the popularity of the mask, Package is considering launching a Don’t Worry cleanser and moisturizer. The mask claims to calm and soothe irritated skin and reduce redness. It’s sensitive skin friendly with no alcohol, parabens or fragrances. I can’t wait to try it!

The Verdict: I enjoyed this box. It contained a variety of full-size products perfect for relaxing and unwinding. My favorite products are the face wash and eye mask. I’ll look to the self-care cards for inspiration on ways to get a daily dose of self-care. This month’s estimated value is $138.48 making this box a real deal considering the $39.98 price ($34.99 + $4.99 shipping).

Hi, I’m Shatae; pronounced shhh-tay! I work in IT Healthcare, I’m married to my high school sweetheart and we have 2 cool kids. I am obsessed with black culture, lifestyle, travel and art made by and featuring women of color. I also love trendy plus-size fashion and accessories, eclectic and bohemian home décor and all things self-care, mental health and fitness. My favorite box is Izzy & Liv’s Brown Sugar Box; a monthly box offering tees, accessories and lifestyle products designed for black women. I also subscribe to TheSelfCareBox, FabFitFun, CauseBox and Merkaela. Being a wife and full-time working mom, subscription boxes are one of the few things that are just for me! They are fun, convenient, reasonably priced and full of surprises.

  1. It seems I’m in the minority, but I have to say it’s disappointing to me to find so many skincare products in therabox lately. There are so many beauty and skin care products in boxes, as well as whole boxes devoted to them (even the natural kind), it just feels redundant that a mental health focused box has also jumped on that (too easy) train.

    • You aren’t in the minority!

  2. I emailed them about the body butter. They said it should not have been half empty. They apologized and contacted the vendor to send another one out. They are always super nice and helpful.

    • Oh good, April! I was really wondering about that and thought how odd it was to have so little product in the jar. I’m glad they addressed the issue.

  3. This box is consistently amazing! Great products and new spins on products you always use (face wash; masks). I love that oil and sleep mask. So luxurious and relaxing.

    Also, this box sells out every month. My Sept. box has already shipped out (they ship out on the 26th of the month). You might want to double check that any are left.

    • You are right! August and September boxes are now all sold out. They are taking ore-orders for the October box. Let me see if I can get the review updated.

    • Updated!

  4. Great review! Bummer it’s sold out. I’ve had my eye on this box for a while and I might have considered this one. I may go ahead and check out that face wash and sheet mask though. My skin responds well to honey products, so the cleanser sounds up my alley.

    • Thank you! Definitely try the face wash. It was my favorite product in the box! Also, TheraBox should be rolling out spoilers for next month’s box on IG if you want to get an early peek!

  5. That serum has calendula oil (Marigold) which is great for acne. I mash the flowers and make spot treatment paste when i get a breakout. Bummer the body butter was so small and half empty, the jar was so cute.

    • That’s good to know! Thanks for the tip Jessi! Yes, a bit of a bummer about the body butter but it did smell great and has great ingredients.
