Summer 2019 RosePost Box Review
This box always feels so luxurious to open! I knew from spoilers most of what was going to be in here, but I still enjoyed the unboxing process quite a bit:
There was a full-color information card with more details about the products and brands included in the box. I thought it was quite informative. It’s actually pretty handy, too, in that it has web addresses for easy reorders (and accurate pricing information). There were also some promotional cards from some of the brands in the box.
Neroli Rose Aroma Bliss Fragrance by Emanate Essentials – Estimated Value $19.50
This fragrance isn’t available for purchase but a lot of other ones are so I’ve linked to and used the value from those. This is pretty to look at, isn’t it? Neroli flowers are orange blossoms (from bitter orange) and so this is overall rather floral but maybe with a slight hint of citrus. Although I’m not usually super into floral fragrances, this one was nice and relaxing for me. It only lasted a few hours, though, but I guess that is common with oil-based fragrances (or at least it has been my experience). However, it is packaged in a convenient rollerball bottle for easy reapplication.
Rose Lip Polish by Modern Skyn Alchemy, 1 oz – Retail Value $12
This is a sugar scrub that is colored slightly with beet powder and the only preservative is tocopheryl acetate (i.e., vitamin E, which is also moisturizing). I have done something to my lips this past week that made them super rough (maybe a mask serum? or a new cleanser I tried?) and I’ve been gently using this for a few days now to try to get them back to a better state. I also like to use lip scrubs to remove the last vestiges of Korean lip stains (that makeup remover won’t get).
Bouquet Luxe Bath + Soak by Emanate Essentials – Listed Value $15
This product is also not available for purchase online (as far as I can tell) so I’m using the value from the information card. (I find that RosePost Box information card values are accurate when it comes to things you *can* buy, so I feel OK doing this.) Anyway, I never have time to take full baths, so I dumped this out into a small Rubbermaid container and shook it up to mix and I’ve been putting it in disposable paper tea bags and using it in my heated foot bath at night. (The tea bags are so I don’t have to clean flower parts out of the foot bath.) I am getting multiple uses out of it that way and it really is quite relaxing.
Rose Hand Scrub by La Bloom Beauty – Retail Value $22
The backs of my hands are not looking too bad these days, but I have some serious calluses developing from weightlifting on the other side, so I’ve been using this on my palms. The calluses aren’t gone yet, but I think I can maybe see a little bit of a difference? At any rate, this is a full-sized jar so there is enough to use for awhile. This is pretty gentle so I think it would work for less serious smoothing, as well.
Shea Butter Soap Loofah in Rose by Modern Skyn Alchemy – Retail Value $10
This has a loofah inside but it’s not super noticeable in the photo or after the first use. I’ll keep at it, though. This smells really nice so I know I’ll be using it a lot (even though I have three other bar soaps in my shower right now…). There are several other scents of this I’m interested in now so I may have to buy a few.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $78.50 for the Summer 2019 RosePost Box. This is always a fun unboxing experience for me, from the packaging and presentation on down to actually trying the products. These items were all new to me (the items from this box typically are, though). I sensed some lack of enthusiasm from MSA readers on the spoiler post comments, but I thought this was actually a nice box. I don’t get any bath and body subscriptions at the moment, so I may receive one bath and body item per month in another box, or perhaps one fragrance item, so this subscription is really my only chance to be surprised by these types of items. I figured out a way to use the bath soak for multiple uses, which extends the value a bit, and the hand and lip scrub were particularly timely for me and some issues I am having (but probably not things I would’ve purchased on my own).
