Here is the card that gives you some more information about the items included.

Fruit For Thought “Raspberry White Chocolate” February 2019 - Mug 1 Fruit For Thought “Raspberry White Chocolate” February 2019 - Mug 2 Fruit For Thought “Raspberry White Chocolate” February 2019 - Mug 3

Pinky Up Heart Double Walled Glass Tea Mug – Retail Value $12.99

How cute is this?? It is a double walled glass mug that looks like a heart once you pour your tea in, and it can hold 8 ounces of delicious tea. The double wall means that there are no worries about the glass being too hot to hold, but the wide surface area on the top did mean my tea cooled off quicker than my tea in my deep mugs.

The Tea Can Company Raspberry Oolong Tea – Retail Value $3.99

This is an oolong tea infused with raspberry and dried fruits like cranberry, apple, and hibiscus. I made this with a sugar cube, and it would have been too tart for my taste without it. I liked it, but I will say that this is some expensive tea- you’re essentially paying a dollar per tea bag.

Country Home Creations Raspberry White Chocolate Dip, 4.5 oz – Retail Value $6.95

This box always sends some truly tasty treats, and this white chocolate raspberry drip has me drooling. The instructions say to mix it with softened cream cheese and sour cream, and I am looking forward to my next get-together where I can make this to share and dip some crispy granny smith apples inside.

Fruit For Thought “Raspberry White Chocolate” February 2019 - Mask 1 Fruit For Thought “Raspberry White Chocolate” February 2019 - Mask 2

Primal Elements French Pink Clay Rose Face Mask, 1.18 oz – Retail Value $10

This face mask is made with kaolin clay (which is great when you’re dealing with enlarged pores or oily skin!) as well as magnesium, zinc, and rosemary leaf extract. I used this on my t-zone and I found it to be gentle and not stripping. I also appreciate that the instructions say to not let the mask dry completely- clay masks that are allowed to dry completely will actually pull moisture out of your skin and leave you with drier skin.

Fish Princess Farms Raspberry Goat Milk Soap – Retail Value $7

This soap is made with fresh goat milk from Swiss Alpine Goats and ground raspberry seeds! It smells amazing thanks to the raspberry and vanilla fragrance oils, and the soap itself was creamy and nourishing to my skin. Plus, this is probably the prettiest soap packaging I have ever seen.

Fruit For Thought “Raspberry White Chocolate” February 2019 - Treats

Valentine’s Day Candy

We also got some Lindt truffles and a chocolate heart for Valentine’s Day. Yummy!

The Verdict: I really loved the curation of this month’s box- it had romantic touches without being in your face about Valentine’s Day. I will say, though, that I think another item should have been included to bump up the overall value a tad. While this box emphasizes thoughtful curation over high-value items, I calculated a value of $40.93 this month, not including the chocolates, which is below the cost of the box.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, your first box will be the March box, which is Coconut Lime themed!

I am a staunch believer that pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza and when I’m not working as a family law attorney I enjoy hiking the Louisiana trails (alligator sightings are a favorite!) or relaxing with Duchess, my cat. I’m a sucker for anything labeled a mystery box and I’ve never met a bath bomb I didn’t like.

I have to agree with Jane and Beth. I read this review every month and almost always love everything in each box. And the themes/curations are excellent.
I just can’t get past the cost. Since you’re paying for shipping, I think a more reasonable price would be around $35.

Love the owner Pam! If you can score a mystery box when possible that was a treat. But I also think that it’s expensive with the added shipping cost on top. Yes I do know that shipping is expensive and that the items are unique and from cool small businesses.

Unfortunately if we charged $35 we’d be out of business. Shipping alone costs us atleast $8. That said, I wish we could lower the price but I’ve gotten enough feedback to realize I either need to lower the price and include alittle less or add alittle more. Thanks for the feedback!

Even giving free shipping with the box would make the cost a little easier to swallow. I understand that is probably not possible for you though.

Everything this sub sends is always so cute and I can tell they put thought into the curation. Unfortunately it’s just too expensive for what you actually get.

Yikes! That is not a good value at all. It’s like you are paying an extra $5 for curation. Plus add shipping onto that…

Does it say if the mug is microwave safe?
