Each CAUSEBOX comes with a booklet detailing the items included and the makers behind each item. I recommend reading this cover-to-cover! CAUSEBOX works with makers that give back, support fair trade, ethically source materials, etc., and it’s an inspiring read!
Now, on to the items!
Cleobella X CAUSEBOX Silky Scarf – Retail Value $52
(Subscribers will receive 1 of 3 patterns. Annual subscribers get to pick their pattern. See all options here.)
I’m very happy to report that the quality of this scarf is very impressive. (That goes for the rest of the items in the box, too.)
This floral print started out as a hand-painted design from Cleobella exclusive to CAUSEBOX.
It’s made from a vegan silk (100% polyester), and the Cleobella team took months of sampling to develop the perfect material.
Here it is on:
Admittedly, I’m not much of a silk scarf person. They often feel a bit too formal daily outfits, but after trying it on, I’m really liking it with just a white shirt and jeans! What do you think?
CAUSEBOX also included a page in their booklet with styling ideas:
I’m definitely going to try the headband approach. I like it as a pony tail accent, too.
And one other alternative use for scarves – art! (I’ve seen some lovely framed pieces on Pinterest, but since I plan on wearing this scarf and want easy access, I just just used double sided tape to temporarily attach it to a canvas.)
Glass Ladder & Co Megan Portfolio Clutch – Retail Value $120
(Subscribers will receive 1 of 3 colors. Annual subscribers get to pick their colors. See all options here.)
This is my favorite piece in the box – I know I’m going to use it all the time!
It measures 13” x 10” x 0.5” and has slots for cards, pens, notepads, etc. Plus a large pocket that is perfect for my iPad.
There are two button closure options in case you are carrying larger items and need more slack.
When I first pulled this out of the box, I was surprised and impressed with the weight of it. It’s not heavy, but the material is substantial, and the construction is impeccable as well. The feels very modern and classic at the same time. I think it will hold up well for years.
This is going to be my go-to for all travel now:
iPad, iPhone, and lip balm all tucked away!
And there’s an outer pocket as well!
Marina De Buchi Luxe Charm Bracelet – Retail Value $37
(Subscribers will receive 1 of 2 designs. Annual subscribers get to pick their design. See all options here.)
This delicate gold plated bracelet has two stars and a moon charm – I love it! Here it is on:
And the mission behind the brand gives even more significance to each piece:
In 2014 Marina De Buchi designed her first collection with the purpose was to raise awareness to help fight human trafficking, also contributing 10% of the sales price directly to The A21 Campaign (anti-human trafficking organisation).
KALOS Mist Congeniality Elixir Toning Mist – Retail Value $22
This mist is ingredient-conscious, and designed to provide immediate hydration while improving overall skin tone over time. You can use it throughout the day, post-cleanse before you apply your serums, creams, etc., too. I found the mist to be gentle and refreshing. The spray itself could be a little finer, so I’d recommend hold it at arm’s length if you are applying over makeup.
And another wonderful thing to call out about this brand: they give 5% of Kálos’ sales to non-profits supporting girls education around the world.
COSMEDIX GLOW Bamboo Brightening Mask – Retail Value $54
More ingredient-conscious skincare!
This mask is designed to help improve the appearance of uneven skin tone and discoloration. The formula has a gentle exfoliation (you can use it up to three times a week), and a subtle citrus scent. You apply a thick layer to damp skin, massage, then wait 10 minutes to remove. While I hope to notice improvements in my skin tone with time, immediately my skin felt SO smooth after I removed the mask!
Ettitude Bamboo Lyocell Eye Mask – Retail Value $15
I’m a super sensitive sleeper, so I wear a sleep mask every night – and this one works for me!
The elastic band is thick, so you don’t have to worry about it slipping, and the material is very comfortable.
And I love that it is machine washable! (The 100% Organic Bamboo Lyocell fabric is hypoallergenic and antimicrobial, too!)
WYLD French Pink Clay Konjac Sponge – Retail Value $16.90
If you aren’t familiar with a konjac sponges, you wet it before using at it becomes soft. It’s excellent for a very gentle exfoliation you can use daily.
This sponge is infused with French Clay to help removes dirt, oil, makeup and build-up in pores.
And once you are done using it, just hang it up to dry!
ALTRU Macrame Plant Hanger – Retail Value $14
ALTRU is the in-house CAUSEBOX brand – and everything product they make connects back to a cause. In this case, they planted 8000 trees throughout California – in the areas that have been most affected by recent wildfires.
Again, the quality of these piece is impressive!
I used it to hang this aloe plant, but you can use it for non-plant holding, too! 🙂
(CAUSEBOX also recommends using it to hold a fruit bowl!)
Alja Horvat Exclusive Art Print – Value Listed $14
And in every box, CAUSEBOX works with an artist to design the box and artwork. These little postcard-sized prints are great for framing!
Verdict: This CAUSEBOX has a value of about $340.90! As usual, I am so impressed with CAUSEBOX. I love their mission of working with brands + companies that give back, support fair trade, etc., and the box curation is equally amazing. The value is great for $54.95, and I think this may be my favorite CAUSEBOX of all time. I was showing this box to everyone at the MSA office – the quality of every item is so good, the colors and prints are perfect for spring, and there are so many practical + special items!
