This box comes with a booklet detailing all the items included:
They also give you background info on all the makers involved with the box:
It’s full of inspiring stories, and it’s wonderful to see all the ways that CAUSEBOX and subscribers support fair trade, new job opportunities, and other amazing initiatives across the globe. Out of all the subscription boxes I review, this is definitely my favorite booklet – it’s such a feel-good read, and it gives so much more depth to every item you are about to unbox!
And now, for the unboxing!
Luna Nectar Jade Roller – Retail Value $25
Jade rollers are everywhere lately, so this inclusion feels very on trend! These are great for facial massage – specifically lymphatic drainage. (Check out Marne + Anna’s AMAZING tutorial on jade rollers.)
I love using these when I’m on a phone call. If I’m talking to someone speakerphone, that means I’m also getting a facial massage!
October Jaipur Vegan Leather Everday Envelope Clutch – Retail Value $60
(Subscribers will receive either this black version or a beige one.)
It’s a super simple + chic clutch, with a button closure, a striped fabric lining inside, and one zippered pocket. Here it is in hand to give you a better sense of scale:
This is definitely a wardrobe staple for me – and I really love that the lining gives it a little extra character.
SiiZU Poncho Wrap – Retail Value $115
This poncho wrap is available in 3 colors:
(Subscribers will receive one of these three colors.)
The fabric is super soft and cozy. It’s a tight weave, so it gives you warm without adding bulk.
Here’s Marne modeling this charcoal one for us:
And here I am wearing the cranberry one as a scarf:
It’s a versatile piece!
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. (I found these to be super comfortable.)
They also have a microphone, and play/pause button with volume control.
Now on to 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!
Paper Source Handmade Stationery – Retail Value $12
These cards are handmade in India using recycled cotton textiles. (They are also free of processing chemicals – they dry with solar energy!)
And the cards themselves are great, too. The silver and gold dots have a metallic shimmer, and the pattern is on both sides of the card. (The inside is blank.) I actually thought handmade cards would cost more than $2 a card!
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 $334 – 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!
