FlourishBox “Winter” January 2019 Review
The first item is the insert card, providing some information on the items you will find in your box. It emphasizes their focus on ethically sourced products. The workers who make these items are paid fairly and work in safe spaces. I think this is really important and this adds so much value to this subscription for me without even knowing what is in it.
Exclusive! 100 Wool Scarf
This black and grey botanical scarf is delightfully moody, and an excellent piece to add to your winter wardrobe! It is lightweight, but still 100% wool, meaning you get warmth without bulk. I think the Winterberry print is really well done and I love the lore behind the berry itself: it is cherished in many cultures for being a symbol of beauty even in times of dormancy, like this cold cold winter we are currently in! The edges are finished off with a minimal fringe effect.
It is really cute with my fuzzy ivory sweater!
I have used a shower fizzy before from a different brand and it sadly left a faint stain on my shower base. For that reason, I opted to put this one in a shallow bowl! The scent was a super strong and invigorating eucalyptus that totally cleared a minor head cold I woke up with. This is a great option if you want to elevate your shower experience and don’t have time for a bath bomb.
Soapy Goat Homes Peppermint Lip Balm – Retail Value $2.40
I am not normally a huge peppermint fan but there was something about this balm that won me over. I think it might be that the sharp peppermint flavor has a creaminess to the scent and the smooth and nourishing texture of the balm is super smooth and comforting on my chapped winter lips.
Verdict: FlourishBox this month felt really pampering with the shower fizzy and lip balm! These two bonus items were perfect for these cold days, especially when paired with the lovely 100% wool scarf! I have been working towards a more minimal wardrobe and the subtle botanical print in black and grey couldn’t have been a more perfect addition. This is one of those subs that has its fair share of people who are way into it and others who think it is overpriced, but for me, part of its value is supporting the fair trade workers and smaller studios involved in each product. I will always pay more for something limited edition and made with care.
