Meowbox August 2019 - Tippy the ToucanMeowbox August 2019 - Sneaky 6

The Item: Tippy the Toucan

The Cost: $6.00

From: Meowbox

Why I love it: Both Sneaky and Angus had a lot of fun with this toy and I got some good pictures. The legs were stretchy and apparently also good for biting (at least according to the cats). Plus it had feathers. What’s not to like?

Megan’s Favorite:

walnut handled knife

The Item: BucknBear Mini Camper Knife

The Cost: $69.00

From: Bespoke Post

Why I love it: Very rarely do I get something in a box that makes my husband Will THIS excited. He loves hand-forged knives and is especially interested in Damascus steel, so this box was a no brainer. The quality is fantastic and I loved that I could choose a handle color.

SinglesSwag August 2019 - Seraphine Botanicals Quinoa + Baobab Sculpting & Strengthening Mascara – Full Size 6

The Item: Seraphine Botanicals Quinoa + Baobab Sculpting and Strengthening Mascara 

The Cost: $24.00

From: SinglesSwag

Why I Love It: I’m a mascara junkie and love receiving a mascara brand that’s new. This mascara didn’t disappoint, it lengthened and curled my lashes. This was one of The Zoë Reports March 2019 products “that give all the spring time feels.”

Brandi’s Favorite:

The Item: Robotis Play 601 Zoomates

The Cost: Retail Value $28.46

From: Amazon STEM Toy Club

Why I love it: This month’s toy was one that we were all very excited to receive! We love these Robotis sets thanks to the first set we received in our February 2018 box and we have so much fun creating with them. There are so many possibilities with these sets and they keep the kids entertained for quite a while. We enjoyed putting together the animals and seeing what else we could come up with on our own!

Becca’s Favorite:

Jewelry Subscription Box August 2019 - Bracelet Wear Front Close Up

The Item: Gold Gemstone Bracelet 

The Cost: N/A

From: Jewelry Subscription

Why I love it: Look at this glitzy piece of beautifulness! I love, love, love the sparkle of this bracelet and how easy it is to clasp! My son said it looks like “diamond monster truck tracks!” I can’t wait to wear this baby out on date night! And while it came missing a stone, customer service was very apologetic and sent me a replacement the next day!

Christen’s Favorite: 

The Item: Sacred Self-Care Oracle Deck

The Cost: approx. $32.15 USD ($50 NZD)

From: Astral Box 

Why I love it: Self-love seems like such a social trend right now, which is amazing, but actually carving out time for self-care can be tricky. I love that this deck gives tons of ideas for quick, larger, tangible, and spiritual exercises in self-care. Plus, they’ve got great design!

Jessica’s Favorite: 

henne organics lip mask

The Item: Henne Organics Lip Mask 

The Cost: $5 for a sample, $37 for the full-size

From: Naturisimo Extreme Purity Discovery Box

Why I love it: This is the best lip mask I have ever used, bar none. It is better than the lip masks from Laneige, Bite Beauty, and a whole slew of others I have tried over the years. It’s deeply nourishing and hydrating without feeling goopy, and the hydration lasts longer on my lips than any other brand.

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

  1. The Henne Lip Tints are also ridiculously amazing! I’ve tried both Bare and Intrigue and I’m never turning back.

  2. Hi Megan! Out of curiosity, I noticed in past Best Of posts that beauty products are mentioned in the Subscription Box Favorites posts, but not that month’s Beauty Box Favorites posts, and I was just wondering why. 🙂

    • Hey Luna! Faves are sort of an open call to our reviewers. They submit them in each category of their choice. <3
