Margot Elena Discovery Box – Winter 2018 Review
The Seasonal Discovery box from Margot Elena is a quarterly subscription box featuring full-size beauty and lifestyle items. (If you aren’t familiar with this brand, it’s carried in stores like Anthropologie.)
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
In general, the packaging is fab, and this would be a great box to send as a gift!

This box comes with a card detailing all the items included:
And there’s a letter from Margot Elena telling you the story behind the box:
Now, on to the items!
Peacock Silken Kimono – $60 Value
This Kimono is 100% Bemberg, dry clean only.
Here it is on:
And here I am with my arms extended so you can get a better sense of the scale:
This is not what I would have predicted in a Winter box, but I have to admit, it was nice to open the box and see such pretty, vibrant colors! This kimono will be great to wear around the house when it’s a bit warmer! (And it could easily double as a scarf.)
Hand-glazed Stoneware Mug – $14 Value
And to continue with the peacock theme, we have this lovely mug! It’s dishwasher safe, and the inside has a beautiful turquoise glaze:
If you drink your coffee/tea really hot, you may need a handle for your mug. If that’s the case, this would work well as a pen holder, etc.
Limited Edition Wish Bubble Bath – $18 Value
This Wish scent of sugared pastille is hands down one of my all-time favorite Margot Elena scents. It’s subtle, sweet, and feels like a perfect scent for a Winter box. And the gold bumblebees on this glass bottle make it just a bit sweeter! I love how everything Margot Elena makes is stunning!
The Cottage Greenhouse White Pine & Balsam Travel Candle – Value Listed $12
More perfect winter scents! I love a pine-scented candle for the holidays and this smells SO good!
Tokyomilk Novocaine & Tainted Love Fragrance Duo – Value Listed $18
This duo includes Novacaine and Tainted Love:
Novacaine is a blend of crushed ginger, Thai pepper, frankincense, and vanilla orchid.
Tainted Love is a blend of dark vanilla bean, orchid, white tea, and sandalwood.
I’m not much of a perfume wearer, but both these scents are pretty appealing to me. They are not overly sweet, and I like that you can blend the fragrances. My only complaint is that I wish these were rollerballs or sprizters.
Triple Milled Shea Butter Soap – $14 Value
More of the Wish scent!
I had this on my desk for a few days, and every time I sat at my desk I had a moment of “what smells so good?” then remembered it was this soap! This box seriously smells so good! And this soap bar is made with olive oil, coconut oil, and shea butter, so it doesn’t dry out your skin.
The Kissing Bell – $14 Value
This is a mistletoe alternative (or addition)! It’s a tradition that Margot Elena’s family started, and she wanted to pass it along to all subscribers! She included a note explaining so that you aren’t just wondering, “why is there a bell in this box?”
Any ideas for how to use this bell outside of the holidays? I love the bright blue ribbon color and want to make sure it is on display!
Wish Bath Salt Sachet – $14 Value
How cute is that crystal charm? Margot Elena = best packaging ever!
In the letter, Margot explains that this box was inspired by one of their Instagram followers who said she would love to get a box filled with Wish products. I’m guessing if you don’t love this scent, this box may be a bit of a miss for you, but I’m a big Wish fan, so I’m thrilled with this Instagram user suggestion!
And to round out the beauty products, we have one more Wish item:
Wish Shea Butter Handcreme – $25 Value
Like the other Margot Elena hand cremes I’ve sampled, I’m happy to report that this didn’t leave my skin feeling greasy – and it was super moisturizing.
Signature Stationery Trio – $15 Value
These adorable cards feature glitter accents and are blank inside.
Always good to get another birthday card!
And a holiday card to round out the bunch!
Verdict: This box has a $202 value for $49.99! Amazing! This box would have been wonderful to split into gifts for the holidays, but in my case, I want to keep everything to myself. (I really lucked out on the Wish scent this quarter!)
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. As of today (1/1), your first box would be the Spring Box. (I recommend signing up soon as this box keeps selling out.) We’re giving one Winter Box away, though! Enter here!
Coupon – no coupons available for this subscription.
