Organic Bunny Box April 2019 Review
In addition to the already cute exterior box, you get a really nicely designed and sturdy reusable gift box each month that houses all of your organic goodies. It seems to change ever so often as well, so you can amass a collection of different designs. This month has a new design with cute illustrated bunnies all over it.
The lid stays put with magnets so you can use it again after you’ve raided it. It reads: “For the glamorous girl with a green heart”
The Organic Bunny Box doesn’t include an info card but normally has all the items listed on their website by the time it arrives.
Sahara Rose Desert Goddess Remineralizing Polish, 6 oz. – Estimated Retail Value $42.35 (Buy 6.8 oz. for $48.00)
Wow- this smells amazing, the lavender comes out the most. I popped it in my shower to use after my normal cleansing like I would a body scrub. This polish has a tiny bit of grit but nothing too large at all. This almost feels like a mod mask but for your entire body- which you could use as one if left on 5-7 minutes. I simply used it to massage into my legs, arms, and rear (the most important place to exfoliate, IMO!) and then rinsed off. Once I got out of the shower I was really impressed with how soft and hydrated my skin felt. Much more so than just washing with my usual body wash so much
28 Litsea Top Note Wild Citrus Body Oil, 1.69 oz. – Retail Value $22.00
Body oils seem to be all the rage right now in subscription boxes, no? Maybe they’ve just always been a constant. I love facial oils these days, so getting a larger bottle meant for the rest of me is a nice treat. This one from 28 Litsea has the most wonderful citrus scent from essential oils while meadowfoam seed oil, organic baobab oil, squalane, and calendula flowers infused in olive fruit oil penetrate my freshly cleansed skin to hydrate and soften. This is a great product to smooth over the skin after using the previous polish for ultimate luxury.
Petite Histoire Hollywoodland Perfume Oil, 0.37 oz. – Retail Value $65.00
Oh- including a fragrance is a bold move in a box. I can be really picky and this 100% natural perfume oil, unfortunately, didn’t hit the mark for me. The box is gorgeous and I love the travel-friendly rollerball applicator but the scent is just not one I’d choose. As described on their site: the top includes neroli, ylang-ylang, green mandarin which is maybe where my nose isn’t feeling it. The middle consisting of rose de Mai and lavender absolute sounds lovely as well as the base of vanilla bourbon, elemi, patchouli. I normally lean towards more fruity sweet scents or something really woodsy. No fret, I’ll pass this on to someone who will surely love it.
A Wild Soap Bar in Desert Sage, 3.5 oz. – Retail Value $6.50
This soap, on the other hand, is dreeeeeammmmy! Several times I’ve been caught huffing it at my desk. Just one look at its raw wavy top and I can picture a dusty sand dune while I see flecks of rosemary and sage on top. Cedarwood and my beloved lemongrass also lend their enchanting scents to this coconut, olive, sunflower, and castor oil-based bar along with purifying clay. I normally use liquid soap from pumps but handmade bars with paper packaging seems much more earth-friendly and this one makes it easier to switch.
Jordan Saban Hair La Brume Hair Primer, 2 oz. – Estimated Retail Value $10.67 (Buy 6 oz. for $32.00)
If you’ve read other beauty reviews by me, you know I rarely want to put products in my hair (especially oils). This mist is really light though and after I put it in damp hair and blown it dry- was barely able to tell I had a product in at all. While I’m not sure I know what a “hair primer” really is, this one intends to moisturize, protect, and add “long-lasting results”. I will say that it seemed to help a bit with my flyaways without weighing my hair down, so that’s a plus!
Earth’s Beauty Mineral Colours Blush in Satin Rose, 0.35 oz. – Retail Value $13.95
This pale pink blush is super sheer. So much that even though I tried to pile it on, I wasn’t noticing much pigment at all. I’ve been using a cream blush for a while now so I think I’ve gotten used to serious pigment. This loose powder is best for subtle natural no-makeup looks for sure.
Lip Whip by Kari Gran in Jolene, 0.25 oz. – Retail Value $24.00
Speaking of subtle color- this lip whip seems outrageously bright in the pot, but once on my lips softens to a pale magenta. This is great for days that I want a little bit of color without putting on a heavy liquid lipstick and even has a touch of minty zing to it because of the included peppermint oil. It glides on really easy since it’s super creamy and also has a hint of shimmer to it.
Here are swatches! Both the lip whip (top) and the blush are very sheer.
Verdict: Organic Bunny Box had a good mix of skincare, makeup and even a bit of haircare this month. The body polish, body oil and soap were probably my faves, but the lip whip and hair primer were also intriguing. The fragrance was very hit or miss and turned out to be a miss for me but had the highest retail value of the box ($65). The seven products this time totaled about $185, which is more than triple the $59 cost of the box, which includes free shipping.
