Winter 2019 RosePost Box Review
This box always feels so luxurious to open! I knew from our spoilers most of what was going to be in here, but I still enjoyed the unboxing process quite a bit:
There was a full-color information card with more details about the products and brands included in the box. I thought it was quite informative. It’s actually pretty handy, too, in that it has web addresses for easy reorders (and accurate pricing information).
Noe Hand/Nail/Cuticle Oil by Noelle Botanicals (10 mL) – Retail Value $25
My hands are so, so, so dry right now and my cuticles look terrible. So this could not have come at a better time. I do feel that the area around which I applied this looks a little better after a few days of consistent use. I’m really interested to see how it does long-term. Since it’s cuticle oil, you don’t use much at once and this will last a very long time.
Rose Quartz Restoring Body Oil by Elaa Skincare (100 mL) – Retail Value $49
I usually go for body lotion instead of body oil, but I am not going to miss the opportunity to try a $49 body oil! And anyway, the skin on my legs is almost as dry at the moment as the skin on my hands. That being the case, this absorbed into my skin easily (and without leaving my skin feeling oily or anything). It made my skin pretty soft, too, and the scent is lovely. The scent comes from both rose and vanilla essential oils and they work quite well together. (This contains rose quartz crystals but, FYI, those are not going to do anything. Rose quartz is silicon dioxide which is a large, crystalline polymer and, although there are ways silica can be processed to incorporate it into oil and water solutions, simply dropping quartz crystals into oil isn’t going to confer any benefits, they’ll just sit in the bottle.)
Shimmering Rose Body Polish by Modern Skyn Alchemy (1 lb) – Retail Value $18
I love getting scrubs. They’re probably my favorite bath/body items to receive in subscription boxes. This is a sugar scrub, which I like for several reasons: (1) it dissolves and there’s no worry about messing up the shower like with coffee scrubs or about clogging the drain or about microplastics in the ocean and (2) it doesn’t hurt if used right after shaving or if you have a paper cut, like a salt scrub would. Anyway, this also has hibiscus which is supposed to help break down dead skin although I’m not sure how you could even monitor for that happening. At any rate, this is an effective scrub without too much oil (something I’m really picky about) and there’s something about the old-school labeling of this company’s products that makes me want to spend a bunch of money on their website.
There are often bonus postcards and such in this box. This wasn’t on the information card and it is clearly exclusive to the box, so I can’t really guess at a value. I don’t send these (you could if you wanted to), but I do find them to be nice decorations, especially if you like pictures of roses in addition to rose scents (I do).
Bonus: Rose Quartz Crystal
This was listed as a bonus item on the information card. I don’t do any sort of practice with crystals because I’m into evidence-based, peer-reviewed medical treatments (!) but I have a little dish I got in a Birchbox limited edition box back in the day and I put all the crystals and large gemstones I get in subscription boxes in there and display it on a shelf because I like the way it all looks, and that’s where this will be going. This is probably the biggest crystal I’ve ever gotten in a subscription box (like almost golf ball size).
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $92 for the Winter 2019 RosePost Box. This is always a fun unboxing experience for me, from the packaging and presentation on down to actually trying the products. All of the brands (and items) were new to me, so that was fun. I found all the products useful and thought they went together nicely considering my skin concerns this time of year (dryness and buildup of dead skin). This box has a value of $92, which is a slightly lower value than Fall’s box but there was the bonus postcard and rose quartz crystal that will add to the value some, and this is still a value that’s well above the month-to-month cost of the box.
To Wrap Up:
