California Found February 2019 Review
Instead of a booklet or pamphlet, California Founds sends these really cool info cards for each product. They are very nice quality and informative. It also points out that they donate 10% of their profit every month to a charitable cause, and this month they are donating to No Kid Hungry: California. Also, they have added a Golden Ticket contest – so if you find one in your sizzle, you get a free box for yourself or a friend!
Masked Flora Collection notecards (4) by Christine May Brand – Retail Value $20
I send out notecards constantly, so I am always happy to receive a beautiful set like this in a subscription box! The artist behind these cards is Christine May Brand who works out of her Carpentiera, California studio. She draws inspiration from her location between the mountains and the coast.
Spark of Love Candle (8 oz.) by SoulSpark – Retail Value $21.99
I LOVE getting a big candle in a subscription box – it’s one of my favorite things to receive, and this one is big and beautiful! It is jasmine and rose scent, but the scent is very light, which is great. It’s a clean blend of soy and coconut oils, and apparently, there is a charm at the bottom! SoulSpark is based out of San Diego, California.
California Strawberry Cane Sugar, Pacific Seafood Seasoning Blend, and Taste of California Seasoning Blend by Gustus Vitae – Total Listed Retail Value $30
California Found typically sends a food or beverage item every month, and I’m thrilled to get these cool spice blends this month! They smell incredible! I sampled the strawberry sugar, which of course tastes absolutely amazing. It tastes like real fruit (with sugar), not just “fruity”. I can’t wait to sprinkle Taste of California on my eggs in the morning! Gustus Vitae is based in Los Angeles, California.
Travel Size Antioxidant Face Oil by Belle & Beast Organics – Retail Value $22 (found here for $18!)
I have kind of sensitive combination skin, so I am always a little wary of skin oils, but this one is great so far. It contains a blend of eleven “dry” oils that absorb into the skin quickly and help your skin regulate oil production! It also has a little geranium in it, which is a very calming scent to me. Belle & Beast Organics is based out of South Pasadena, California, and was started by Christy Marderosian in an effort to produce skincare that is made from only clean and natural ingredients.
Makenzie Earrings in Silver with Aquamarine Swarovski Crystals – Retail Value $43
Look at how bright and gorgeous these earrings are! I absolutely love them. I can always count on California Found to send a jewelry item every month, and I can always count on it being a quality piece. I am extra excited about these earrings because aquamarine is my birthstone. I love them! Robyn Rhodes is based out of Los Angeles.
The Verdict: California Found has become one of my favorite subscription boxes! This month was another great one! I love the earrings soooo much! Everything else is also great and will go to good use. The value of everything adds up to a whopping $136.99, which is way more than the promised value of $90, and the box costs only $49!!!
