Tasu January 2019 “Wellness” Review
Tasu includes a card describing the monthly theme. On the reverse is a list of what’s included with retail values. This month’s theme is “Wellness”.
Let’s dive in!
Into the Woods Essential Oil Blend, 0.5 fl oz.— Listed Value $13.60 ($18.00 CAD)
I am an essential oil addict and I have quite the extensive collection. This is a great blend with a heavy dose of cedar with hints of orange and peppermint. It also has cloves but they are barely there. I used it in my diffuser with some extra sweet orange and my whole house smelled bright and clean. I really like more moody scents and this is a new favorite for sure!
Jasmine Orange Body Butter, 4 fl oz. — Retail Value $18.14 ($24.00 CAD)
I tend to like the body butters and creams that come in this sub. Great scent, check. All natural, check. Minimal apothecary-esque packaging, check! This one is a beautiful blend of orange and jasmine and though I wish the scent were just a wee bit stronger, the formula itself is wonderful. The shea butter and almond oil are very hydrating and the emulsifying wax creates a strong moisture barrier, leaving your hands soft and supple.
Black Forest Tea Blend, 40 grams— Listed Value $4.53 ($6.00 CAD)
Although this tea is really not my style, I did quite enjoy a small cup. It is very dark with notes of chocolate and cherries. It has little white chocolate drops scattered throughout which melt and give it an instant creaminess. I added some vanilla almond milk which made this feel much more like a dessert than a tea. While I am more of an earthy/floral tea enthusiast, this might be an ever so often treat when I get a sugar craving!
Cream and Sprinkle Messy Bun Toque – Listed Value $15.12 ($20.00 CAD)
This is just the cutest beanie ever! It even has an elastic hole at the top for my bun to peek out! I really like the ivory yard with the multi-colored threading. It goes with most anything in my closet. It could stand to be a little bigger, but that might be relative since I have a rather large noggin. I can’t wait to wear this out. All the other buns will be so jealous!
Bun up, thumb up!
Lip & Cheek Stain in Drama — Listed Value $12.09 ($16.00 CAD)
I was super excited to try this out and it was the first thing I reached for in this month’s box. I really liked it as a lip color but found that as a cheek stain it didn’t mix well with my cream to powder foundation. I am still pleased with it though, as I have had the same favorite blush for years and see no likelihood of replacing it. On my lips is it a very natural rosy color with a dewy finish. The formula itself is super hydrating, meaning pretty and happy lips.
The Verdict: I very much enjoyed this month’s Tasu box. I always love their body lotions/creams, and the scent this month was soft and feminine. I always love getting a good essential oil blend, and this month delivered that as well. The tea was just so-so, but it was also the most minor part of this box, so I am fine with that. The beanie is beyond precious and very useful this time of year. I also have been using the lip stain all day, and really enjoy it. This box has a listed value of $63.48 USD ($84 CAD) and that is a decent value for a $34.55 ($37.99 CAD + $7.99 CAD shipping) box.
To Wrap Up:
Value Breakdown: This box costs $28.71 USD, which means that each of the 5 items in the box has an average cost of $5.74.
