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!
Tribe Alive Caftan Coverup – Retail Value $118
This caftan coverup is made with 100% cotton and I think it’s the perfect weight for a summer fabric (the weave is not too heavy, not too light). The quality of construction and material is great, too. This is an impressive garment! There are three different colors you could receive, and if you’re an annual subscriber, you could pick the color you wanted. (Slide through the photos to see all color options.)
In the photos, I’m modeling it in the poncho style and also as a wrap. It’s a versatile piece, but I think I’ll probably be using it as a wrap 90% of the time!
Quagga Green Wet Swim Pouch – Retail Value $25
This is another item that annual subscribers could select their color/pattern choice. (Slide through the photos to see both color options.)
This bag is roomy, made from recycled plastic bottles, and the prints are so fun! And if you won’t use it often for swimsuits, it also is big enough to store all your various beauty products for travel too – and the inside is easy to wipe clean if there are any spills.
Hanalei Papaya Enzyme Powder Face Cleanser – Retail Value $35
(Subscribers will receive this or the Island Aloe Gel – also a $35 retail value. Annual subscribers get to pick which one they want.)
This is one of my favorite beauty discoveries from a subscription box this year! It reminds me of my beloved Tatcha Rice Powder cleanser – for $30 less! The formula is super gentle – I’ve been using it daily with no issues. You just put a small amount of the powder in your hand, add a little water to form a lather, then apply to your face. The exfoliation is so gentle, and it didn’t strip my skin of oils. I will definitely buy this in the future when this bottle runs out!
Altru Straw Tote – Retail Value $50
Altru is CAUSEBOX’s in-house brand, and when designing this tote for the box, they also partnered with global and local charities that are fighting to protect and conserve beaches, oceans, and maritime life through research and educational programs, as well as on-the-ground, community-oriented action.
The tote has white accents with a removable blue yarn tassel. The material is very lightweight so you can easily fold this into any luggage for vacation. It’s on the smaller side for a beach bag but works well to tote your essentials, and again, I’m impressed with the quality of construction.
All Good Reef Friendly Sport Sunscreen – Retail Value $15.99
This sunscreen is Non-Nano Zinc Only, 80 Minute Water Resistant, GMO-Free, Gluten-Free, Vegan, and Oxybenzone-Free. In addition to being ingredient-conscious, I love that the formula is non-greasy, and it has no detectable scent.
Banded Scrunchie 3-Pack – $10
Ah, scrunchies! Nostalgia in hair tie form! These are made with a super soft fabric, and the colors are light and summery. I’m not sure I’m going to be able to pull of rocking this look, but they are perfect for wearing around the house and keeping my hair out of my face when doing masks, etc.
Reduce Everyday Insulated Tumbler – $12.99
This double wall insulated wine tumbler is made with 100% recyclable stainless steel. It comes with a BPA-free plastic lid, too. (The lid is dishwasher safe, the tumbler is hand wash only. I put the tumbler in the top rack of my dishwasher and had no issues – but try that at your own risk!)
Antra Svarcs Art Print – $10
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 $267! 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 a $54.95 box, and incredible with the $20 off coupon – that brings the cost down to $32.97 – under $5 an item! I think this is a wonderfully curated box for the Summer, too!
