California Found March 2019 Review
Instead of a booklet or pamphlet, California Found 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!
Four Greeting Cards by Fiber & Dye – Listed Value $4.50 each
One of my favorite things about California Found is that they almost always include lovely greeting cards in every shipment! I love having unique and beautiful cards on hand. These birthday cards are adorable! Los Angeles based Fiber & Dye has a focus on wedding-related stationery, but their shop includes all kinds of greeting cards. All of their cards feature original artwork.
Lavender Honey Cocktail Mixer by Yes Cocktail Co. – Retail Value $15
I LOVE this cocktail mixer! The scent of lavender and honey work so well together. I can’t wait to try using this with a few different cocktail recipes!
Strengthening Shampoo & Conditioner by California Pure Naturals – Retail Value $9.99 each
After I received my California Found box this month, I had to go out-of-town unexpectedly, so I took a gamble and threw these in my bag untested. My whole family has been using these for a week now, and I have to say, our hair looks and smells amazing! It’s been particularly beneficial for my younger son. He has very fine hair, and he is letting it grow out to donate to Locks of Love. It tangles very easily and is painful to brush, but most conditioners make it look greasy. This conditioner does not look or feel greasy whatsoever, but it still detangles and leaves hair shiny and manageable. Both products also smell incredible! Just like fresh blackberries! California Pure Naturals is based out of Cerritos, California.
3.5 oz. Pink Petals & Black Currant Luxury Reed Diffuser – Retail Value $17.50
The oil in this diffuser smells soooo gooood! It’s a very natural rose scent, but the sweetness is tempered by the acidity of black currant. The diffuser itself works great and adds an aroma to even a large room without being overwhelming. Banter and Bliss is located in Los Angeles where they also make candles and teach candlemaking. All of their fragrances are paraben, sulfate, and phthalate free.
Lotus Petal Earrings by Charming Little Lotus – Listed Value $40
I absolutely love these sterling silver earrings! They are so unique and beautiful! I love how elegant and understated they are. Charming Little Lotus is the Lakewood, California studio of designer Helen Louise. She uses recycled sterling silver and traditional metalsmithing techniques.
The Verdict: California Found has become one of my favorite subscription boxes! This month was another great one! I love the earrings soooo much! I am also really impressed by the conditioner this month. The value of everything adds up to $110.48, which is more than the promised value of $90, and the box costs only $49, including free shipping!
