Now, on to the items!

Avenue 9 Tropical Vibe Tumbler – Value Listed $20

(Subscribers will receive either the pink or black version.)

This tumbler holds 16 ounces and is food safe. (Hand wash only, though!)

SkinSmart Organics Cacao Mint Lip Scrub – Value Listed $7.60

This lip scrub is made with all natural ingredients, and the peppermint flavor is fab. It’s a dry scrub, so don’t expect too much moisture/oil from the formula, but it gets the job done and smells delicious.

Classic Stoneware Planter – Value Listed $11.50

This lil’ ceramic planter is pretty basic but also super practical. It also fits our decor well (I’m guessing it would work well for just about anyone.) I just can’t decide if it’s a little too simple to be included in a subscription box – it seems to be missing that special factor. What do you think?

La Tourangelle Artisan Oils Walnut Pesto Oil – Value Listed $7

Pesto was my favorite sauce when I was a kid, but since I try to avoid dairy in my diet, I don’t get to enjoy it that much anymore. I was expecting this to be another item I can’t eat, but it is dairy free! I get the basil and garlic flavor I love, and you can use it as a dipping sauce, or to drizzle on pasta or salads.

All Heart Cosmetics Rose Clay Mask – Value Listed $23

This is another all-natural beauty product! (I think White Willow does a great job when it comes to beauty curation – I’m always discovering new brands through their boxes!) This is a dry clay mask that you mix with water to form a paste. Then just apply to your skin and let it dry before you remove with warm water. Like most clay masks, this left my skin feeling smooth and clean – I’m a fan.

Verdict: This box has a value of about $69.10 US dollars. Considering the US price is around $54.99 a box shipped, I think that’s a decent value for a box shipped from a different country. If you’re in the US, this wouldn’t be the first women’s lifestyle box I’d recommend, but 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.

  1. As someone who received this box, I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say I really liked it. OK, maybe not the plastic pineapple Tumblr .(I just can’t do plastic. ) Everything else I enjoyed. I’m using the ceramic vase as a colored pencil holder in my studio and I love it.The skincare items and food items are always top -notch with this box , and their customer service is outstanding. For me, shipping on time, answering emails, replacing anything that might’ve been broken etc. are a big part of what makes me keep a sub box. Couple that with what I consider, for the most part, tasteful and fun items always makes this box a winner for me. Keep it up White Willow!

  2. Not impressed with this box. The planter is the best item but looks small. It is plain but if they had sent plants, cactus or air plants it would have been better.

  3. This box is all over the place with randomness. I feel like we need an art kit to decorate the planter. Too simple I think for the box price.

  4. A sad box, as always. I burned myself twicev- so glad I cancelled. This is more like a $20 box for me.

  5. The 3 boxes I received were all lovely but the $19.50 shipping fee to the US finally got to me and I cancelled. I loved the boxes but liked the $19.50 mailing fee in my pocket better than spending it on international postage. I do miss the boxes tho.
