Luna Nectar Jade Roller – Retail Value $25

Jade rollers are everywhere this year, and I’m excited to finally try one! These are great for facial massage – specifically lymphatic drainage. (Check out Marne + Anna’s AMAZING tutorial on jade rollers.)

This is my new habit when I’m doing a phone call. Speakerphone + facial massage = my new favorite life hack 🙂

Matr Boomie Necklace – Retail Value $33

(Subscribers will either receive this necklace or earrings. Annual subscribers get to choose their jewelry preference.)

This necklace features a silver-toned hammered disc, with a gold-toned disc behind it.

The necklace has a toggle clasp, but at 30 inches in length, I could easily slide it over my head. (Though this could be useful if you want to wrap the necklace around twice.)

Here it is on:

It’s a pretty impressive statement piece considering how simple and lightweight it is – now I just need some ideas on how to style it! I’m thinking of leaning into the metal trend and trying this with a gold top or dress. Let me know what you suggest!

SiiZU Poncho Wrap – Retail Value $115

This poncho wrap is available in 3 colors. Annual subscribers get to pick the color of their choice.

The warm tones of this cranberry version are a welcome addition to my closet. (I need a little push out of my all black everything comfort zone!)

The fabric is super soft and cozy. It’s a tight weave, so it gives you warm without adding bulk.

Here it is on:

The poncho definitely is the main focus in just about any outfit that features a poncho, so I’m happy to report that this also can be worn as a scarf if you want a different look:

It’s also just so cozy that I’ll be wearing this around the house all the time as a wrap. (I’m always cold in the winter!)

KLEI Detox Spearmint + Floral Facial Steam – Retail Value $22

This all-natural facial steam is made with Chamomile, Lavender, Rose Petals, Rosemary, Juniper, and Spearmint. It smells lovely to me (I tend to love natural beauty product scents). To use it, you boil water, pour it over a capful of this blend in a bowl, and let it cool for a min or two. Then drape a towel over your head and lean over close to the bowl for a few minutes. It’s supposed to help open your pores and hydrate skin. It feels great, but if that’s for you, there are other great uses for this blend, too. (I’ll be adding some to a muslin bag and throwing it my next bath!)

LSTN The Crescent Bluetooth Earbuds – Retail Value $99.99

These Bluetooth earbuds are super lightweight and easy to use.

They come with a charging USB cable and 3 different size sets of ear tips for the perfect fit.

They also have a microphone, and play/pause button with volume control.

My favorite part of the design?

Thanks to the additional ear grips, these are the most comfortable earbuds I’ve ever worn!

UPDATE: I realize I forgot to talk about sound quality! For music, it’s decent/good, but not great. For podcasts, (which is what I’m primarily using it for) it’s perfect.

And LSTN uses proceeds from every purchase to give hearing aids across the globe!

Idlewild Co 2019 Planner – Retail Value $32

I LOVE this planner! The black and white grid design is classic, the gold metal accents are chic, and the pale pink pages and tabs are just enough color.

Each tab offers a month view and a page for every week:

This is my ideal format for setting my 3 to-dos per day!

And there’s a pocket in the back for any notes, stickers, etc.

Wrapping Paper by Claire Ritchie 

Every season CAUSEBOX collaborates with an artist for the box design, and this quarter they extended that design to wrapping paper, too!

The box includes 3 sheets (one in each color).

And lastly, we get a matching postcard:

Verdict: This CAUSEBOX has a value of about $327 – not counting the wrapping paper and postcard designs! As usual, I am so impressed with CAUSEBOX. I love their mission of working with brands + companies that give back, support fair trade, etc., and the box curation is equally amazing. I’m a fan of every item in this box, and I think the value is great for $54.95!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes! But hurry—they go fast!

  1. I think the whole point is for the planner cover lines to not be pin straight. I enjoy this much better. And I like the wrapping paper as well. I think I might order!

  2. Any ideas on when it is going to ship? Looks like they are having shipping issues. I’d like the wrapping paper about right now.

    • Mine is already on its way. I’m stunned.

  3. I just got an email from Causebox with spoilers that included Luna Nectar eyeshadow palette and cream blush. Anyone see that in their box?

  4. Hmmm. Would be nice if paying subscribers got their boxes first. Just saying….

  5. I love the idea of using the facial steam in the bath. I know with other facial steams, I’ve read that you can bottle up the water afterwards and use it as a facial toner/refresher. Knowing that there are other uses makes me feel better about this product. I like my skin care routine to be quick and simple. The steam idea just seems to cumbersome to use regularly.

  6. How is the quality of the earbuds?

    • Totally forgot to talk about quality! Thank you for the reminder. Just updated the post. The sound is good, not great, for music. I’m using them for listening to podcasts while I do errands, and they are perfect for that. Hope that helps!

  7. Oh these are the same selections I made for my box- cranberry poncho and necklace. I’m so excited to get mine! The shipper has been created but it’s still in pending status.

  8. I can’t wait to get my box! Hope I get the same poncho. I’m not sure about the detox stuff. If it smells good I might set it out as potpourri. Can’t see myself steaming my face. Everything else is a win win!

  9. I love the curation, but the planner…
    It may be just me, but that grid on the cover not being aligned is driving me crazy! It would have been awesome if it were some asymmetric pattern.

    • Lol, you probably just drove a whole bunch of other people crazy by pointing that out. 😂

    • Hahahaha! I was just thinking….was that hand drawn, it doesn’t look even! It would drive me insane to look at daily 🙂
      I do find it funny how there is no real comment on the wrapping paper, very diplomatic since it is not very attractive in my personal opinion lol.

      • Oh that was already ripped apart previously. I forget if it was here or on Instagram, but now I can’t not see Mr. Hanky in that pattern.

  10. Wow, very impressive curation. Did not see that coming.

  11. Can’t wait for it to ship!

  12. cute box – is it somewhat like the oui please one, didn’t they have headphone + planner + other like items? or am I getting it confused with one of the others?! lol
