Fruit For Thought “Raspberry White Chocolate” February 2019 Review
Here is the card that gives you some more information about the items included.
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.
Here is the tea in my new mug!
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.
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.
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.
