TokiBox March 2019 “Hello Spring” Review

Toki Box March 2019 card Toki Box March 2019 card

TokiBox includes a card which indicates a monthly theme. This month the focus is on Spring, however hot chocolate and hydrating lip balm feel a lot more like Winter to me. There are no listed values on the card this month, so I wonder if they’re moving away from that. Still, it’s nice to have a contents list to confirm everything that was intended was, in fact, included!

Toki Box March 2019 mask Toki Box March 2019 mask

Ivy & Twig Rose Clay Face Mask, travel size — Retail Value $1.95

TokiBox sent one of these masks in last month’s box, so I wonder if they had a bunch leftover. In fact, they don’t even list it on the contents card, so it feels like a sweet little bonus! It’s a really nice mask once you get the consistency right.

Toki Box March 2019 lip balm Toki Box March 2019 lip balm Toki Box March 2019 lip balm

Rustic MAKA, Hydrate Lip Balm, Mango, .15oz — Retail Value $3.50

This lip balm has a nice scent, which is oddly reminiscent of the Lip Smackers of my youth. Of course, this is a much more grown-up version with wonderful, natural ingredients, however, the throwback aspect is very pleasing! The consistency is nice, as well–it’s not super greasy and has a nice “weight” to it.

Toki Box March 2019 tea Toki Box March 2019 tea

Simplicity Teas, Lady Lavender, 1 tube —Estimated Value $4.50 (subscribe for a monthly 2-tea subscription box for $9.00/month)

Tea isn’t really my jam, especially the loose kind. I do appreciate the “spring” vibe that the lavender brings to the table with this one, but I’ll likely gift this cute little test tube to a friend to enjoy.

Toki Box March 2019 scrub Toki Box March 2019 scrub

Yippee & Co Whipped Sugar Scrub, Watermelon, 4oz — Retail Value $9.00

I’ve got to admit, I was disappointed with this product. There are a handful of unpronounceable ingredients which I’m not crazy about, however, I do like that it is paraben-free and phthalate-free. I’ll give it points for how mouth-wateringly delicious it smells and how fun the color is, but I’m afraid I can’t say much else good about it. There’s basically no grit to it, so no scrub effect. It also leaves a thick film behind on your skin, which I don’t think anyone loves.

Toki Box March 2019 face wash Toki Box March 2019 face wash

Natural Annie Essentials Face Wash, 2oz — Retail Value $16.50

This product, on the other hand, was quite a treat! Nothing yucky here, just organic castile soap, distilled water, rose-infused oil, and pure essential oil. Just a tiny amount went a long way, foamed up just enough, and smelled heavenly.

Toki Box March 2019 granola bites Toki Box March 2019 granola bites Toki Box March 2019 granola bites

Vive Soft Baked Granola Bites, Mocha Hazelnut Torte, 1.6oz — Retail Value $2.99

The mother-daughter duo who created Vive did so out of dissatisfaction with the sugary, overly-processed snacks on the shelves. Their mocha hazelnut torte soft-baked granola bites are made from only 10 non-GMO, vegan ingredients. As a vegan trying to rebuild my body post-chemo I’m always concerned about getting enough protein, so I was happy to see that these mildly sweet treats contain 4 grams. These are a really nice desert-y treat!

Toki Box March 2019 hot chocolate Toki Box March 2019 hot chocolate Toki Box March 2019 hot chocolate

Elements Truffes Ashwagandha Infused Drinking Hot Chocolate, 4oz — Retail Value $12.00

I wouldn’t have expected to see dark hot chocolate in a Spring box, however, Pittsburgh tends to have some chilly days well into May so I’m not entirely upset about it. I really love the ethos of this company, who donate 25% of their profits towards supporting the wholesome education of underprivileged children in tribal areas of India and use fair trade, ethically-sourced ingredients. On top of all that, the hot chocolate is delicious!

The Verdict: This month’s Tokibox was a little hit-and-miss. I was again confused by the theme curation and disappointed with the scrub, especially. However, I was very happy with the lip balm and face wash.

Using a combo of retail values and estimated prices where retail values weren’t available, the contents of this box add up to an estimated total of $52.39 (including the two bonus mask packets.) This feels like an okay value for the $43.73 cost of the box ($35.95 plus $7.78 shipping).

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the May box. Order by the 11th of the month to receive that month’s box.

Value Breakdown: This box costs $35.95 + $7.78 shipping, which means that each of the 8 items in the box has an average cost of $5.47.

  1. Please include a photograph of an ingredient list if you’re going to insult it. I did look up the etsy store and read the ingredients, and all I see which concerns me is fragrance. Everything else is a foaming agent (look to be derived from coconut) or formal names for soap or natural emulsifiers.
    The film you feel is probably from the soap, which does not rinse clean like detergents do.

    It doesn’t look like a product I’d purchase, but I still wish you’d included a photo of the ingredients if you bring them up in your review!

    • Whoah! Overreact much? She just said she wasn’t crazy about them. That’s not exactly trashing the product. I for one GREATLY appreciate impartial, unbiased, objective, completely honest reviews entirely uninfluenced by any other factor. She reviewed the product just as she would’ve had she paid for it herself and had no incentive to review it for payment or influence. That kind of “clean” and straightforward review is hard to find. Almost every review of beauty products mentions ingredients but unless there’s only a few, I’ve never seen anyone list ALL the ingredients or photograph the ingredient list. And I’ve read thousands of reviews. Just like you did, if a reviewer’s comment makes me want to know more details I just look it up.
      And personally I think overall she went fairly easy on a box of that type/category that costs so much and charges significantly for shipping. I’m trying to switch to more natural, vegan, small business sourced products and I’ve found much better boxes with higher values and more quality products for less money and often free shipping. She definitely made an effort to point out all the positive things she could find.
      Your comments were rude and unjustified. Perhaps you were just having a bad night.

      Keep up the good work Rachel!!!

      • I don’t think it’s overreacting to be curious about the ingredient list if it is something Rachel thought was important to mention in the review. I also don’t see Anne’s comment as being rude at all, she is just offering a suggestion for how to improve the review and did not say anything personal about Rachel.

        Yes, a lot of reviews don’t include ingredients lists, but they also don’t go out of the way to mention the ingredients as a downside of a product. If a reviewer thinks ingredients of a product are harmful, it would be helpful to know what the ingredients are and why the reviewer feels that way.

        Again, this is just a suggestion and not meant as an insult to Rachel. Feedback is how people learn and improve. She is welcome to decide whether to use it or not.
