My box included a pamphlet that showed the contents of the box. It includes an image of the product, retail values and a description for each.

This small card placed at the top of the box highlights its retail value, along with the artist responsible for this month’s box artwork.

This information card came with the bag shown below. It shows Mexico on the front and on the back it gives more information:

This bag was handmade by a family of artisans in Chiapas, Mexico and is distributed by Malinalli Art You Can Wear, a Los Angeles based brand founded by Mexican entrepreneur Virdiana Odriozola.

Malinalli Artisanal Bag – Listed Value $20.00 

I love this first item in my box! The bag is made of really beautiful colors—black with purples, oranges and reds. It closes with a zipper that has a rose-pink tassel and a green ball. The bag is a really great size, too! I am able to fit quite a bit in it!

Daniel Stone x Spiritú Limited Edition Candle, 8 oz – Retail Value $45.00 

I love candles, especially long-lasting candles. This candle boasts 60 hours of burn time and smells of white tea and ginger root. I light this candle and leave it burning in my master bathroom. The candle is made of coconut wax and is really soft, even before being burned. The label has also been exclusively designed for Spiritú by artist Anna Alvarado who was inspired by the uniqueness of women and flowers: resilient and forever blossoming. The candle leaves a light scent in my bathroom that floats into my bedroom which I really like. I just don’t know if I can spend $45 alone on a candle. I am really happy to have such an exclusive kind in this box, though!

Natural Brazilian Agate Candle Holder – Retail Value $12.00

When Liz released spoilers earlier this month, I was hoping to get the pink holder, even though all of them are gorgeous! I was super excited when I opened my box to see the pink one. It really is a beautiful piece featuring a few different shades of pink. It is about an inch thick and isn’t too heavy.

It looks really great together, especially with the lights off.

Murad Refreshing Cleanser, 6.75 oz – Retail Value $39.00

Wow! This is a great cleanser included in my box and Murad is a nice but expensive brand. The first time I used, or even heard of, Murad was in a subscription box as an amazing moisturizer, so I was really psyched to try this cleanser. The product has a pearly sheen and spreads easily on my skin. It leaves my skin so soft and I have even noticed a change in my skin tone. I leave this on my sink in my restroom next to my toothbrush to make sure I use it every day. Key ingredients in this cleanser are cucumber extract to sooth over-processed skin, Hawaiian white ginger to help hydrate and soften skin and algae extract to enhance skin smoothness. I follow up with an essence oil, then moisturizer. Also included was a 25% off code for an online purchase.

Dove Body Wash Mousse, Rose Oil, 10.3 ounces – Retail Value $5.94, Listed Value $5.99

I love Dove products and am a devout user of the baby shampoo and wash for my 11-month-old. For myself, I like to use exfoliators, but got a great body wash in my New Beauty subscription that I have been using lately. I was curious and excited to try this new wash for myself. It is a foam product, so when I opened it up and pumped it once, a lot came out! It smells really good and isn’t too overpowering which I really appreciate! This product also doubles as shaving cream which is perfect for me; I don’t like to use shaving cream and use my body wash when I shave so that alone made me an instant lover of this product. I ended up using this new body wash as an excuse to take a middle-of-the-day shower to test it out and has been the body wash I have reached for lately. It leaves my skin soft and clean with a hint of a rose scent.

Clinique Happy Perfume, 0.14 oz –Listed Value $5.50, Buy a 0.15oz rollerball bottle for $21.00

You know, I am not sure if it was Clinique Happy or a Mary Kay perfume that was my first perfume, but this made me smile a little. This bottle is perfect for my purse or desk for when I need to freshen up. The scent is citrus-floral like. I like it because it is light and not too heavy. This is a good one I can share with my daughter, who is 8 and absolutely loves perfumes.

Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen in Black – Retail Value $22.00, Listed Value $11.00

This couldn’t have come at a more perfect time! I have recently cleaned out my makeup and threw away too many dried out pencils. I like this kind of liquid liner; it is easy to hold and easy to use. The brush helps to create a clean line in one stroke, which is so much easier than an actual pencil where I have to do a couple of strokes that sometimes leads to an uneven line. The color I received is black, which is perfect, though I would have been just as happy with brown. In regards to the value, I referred to Ulta, Sephora and Clinique directly and all the values were $22.00 even though my card reflected $11.00. The only difference I could tell in the two is the color of the cap: mine was silver and the others are all black. It’s possible that they have recently updated the look which could account for the difference in price.

Verdict: I was really, really pleased with my first box; I got so many great products! I also love that this box features items created by Latina women so I can really discover some great things like the bag I got in this month’s box. One of my favorite things about this box is that even though it is curated by Latina women and features items created by Latina creators and entrepreneurs, it is really a great box for any person of any gender or nationality. Altogether, the seven items in my box boasted a $164.94 value for just $39.99 which is almost four times its value, and is a pretty great deal!

  1. FYI – the included eyeliner is .01oz, which is half of the full size. The full size of .02 oz is whats $22.

  2. This box was a really good surprise. I got.it with the 4th of discount just to check it out and this might be my FFF replacement when the year ends.

  3. This was a great box. It was a good curation of items. Although more focus on the “Latina” would be great.

  4. Great Box. I think I’m going to order it. Thanks for reviewing it:)

  5. I love this box, I like handicrafts and other items. I support 100% the Latina entrepreneur woman

  6. This is a great box! Thx for reviewing

  7. I grabbed this box when you first brought it to our attention. I love everything in it! I received the blue candle holder, my fave color. I have the makeup bag in my Causebox tote. The candle is not over powering. The scent is just lovely and I will be purchasing more candles from Daniel Stone. I love Clinique and have been using the Dove as shaving cream. Love this box!

  8. I ordered this box because of the discount and am so glad I did! It’s not as good as PopSugar’s monthly box, but, it really is a solid box.

    I wanted to add something about their customer service. They had a 40% off sale for the 4th of July. It included past boxes, the geode coasters, and more. I ended up buying the spring box with the sale code. I decided later that day that I wanted to get four of the geode coasters for a gift. However, the code didn’t work for my second purchase. I emailed Spiritú customer service and received a quick response. The code was originally supposed to be used one time only. However, since it didn’t say that in the email or on the site, they lifted the restriction for everyone so we could create as many transactions as we wanted. I just wanted to share this because it was exceptional customer service and an example for many companies to follow! 🙂

  9. This is a nice collection of items, but I’d really like to seem more of an emphasis on Latina craftsmanship and/or curation in future boxes. Wish them well, and hope they may move in that direction!

    • Agreed!!!

  10. What a nice first box! For anyone who loves those agate slice coasters, Rock Paradise on etsy is my favorite source. I’ve gotten coasters, beads, and a variety of oddly shaped agate slices with holes drilled in them for costuming from them. Everything is always in perfect shape and super securely packed!

  11. I got this box at a discount. They seem to have discount codes so check online before you order. I got a pretty brown/beige agate. I use it as a drink coaster for my desk at work. They had a sale in their shop and I bought 2 more. I was so happy to get purple and a cool black one. The candle smells great cold, but I didn’t notice much of a scent when lit. I love the little bag. Mine was brown with bright colors. I’m not a fan of Happy perfume so I’m looking to give that away. I donated the body wash to a woman’s shelter because I do not like rose scented items. The eyeliner is nice and the face wash really good. It’s a great little box. I ordered their Spring box for a discount and that was really nice too. I’ll be keeping my eye on this box.

  12. The coaster looks more like half an inch thick, not an inch.

    I am not sure about the statement “my box features items created by Latina women”. Only one of the seven items was (the artisanal bag).

    The actual artist who created the coaster wasn’t named, but anyway, Brazilians are not Latinos.

    • The coaster is about 1/4 inch thick. I have 3 of them. 1 from the box and 2 additional I purchased from their store.
