The Organic Bunny Box September 2019 Review

Organic Bunny reusable gift box with cactus design

You get a really nicely designed and sturdy reusable gift box each month that houses all of your organic goodies. It changes designs frequently and this month has an illustrated cactus theme.

The lid stays put with magnets so you can use it again after you’ve emptied all the goodies. It reads: “For the glamorous girl with a green heart.” The Organic Bunny Box doesn’t include an info card but normally has all the items listed on their website by the time it arrives.

 

Andalou Naturals Apricot Probiotic Cleansing Milk – Estimated Value $3.96 (Buy a 6 oz bottle for $13.99)

The words “cleansing milk” intrigue me since it sounds so nourishing and gentle. That’s exactly how this cleanser feels, too. The apricot scent is barely there which I appreciate and it has a light formula that feels like lotion when applying to my face. There’s nothing harsh about this and my skin is left feeling clean but not stripped with a nice moisture to it. Perfect travel size too.

 

Beauty By Earth Coffee Bean Eye Cream, 0.75 oz. – Retail Value $19.99

Made with organic ingredients, this thick eye cream contains aloe vera, coffee seed extract, cranberry, sea buckthorn, pineapple, cucumber, and others to create a real fruity cocktail for your eyes. The scent is a bit overpowering to me and I think mainly stems from the jasmine oil. This eye cream is meant to “brighten + awaken” the sensitive skin around your peepers but only time will tell.

 

Cocokitty Beauty Tiger Stripes Bronzing Oil, 2 oz. – Retail Value $39.00

I am not the bronzing or tanning kind of gal, but I thought I’d give this a shot anyway and smooth some onto my shoulder to try and get some sunkissed glow. This product has a TON of sparkle in it and it was just really too much for me. It’s almost like smoothing fine gold flakes onto your skin, which I’m sure sounds great to a lot of people, just not me. The oil is lightweight which is nice, and this will certainly bring a lot of shimmer to any area you spread this on. Smells nice and super cute packaging too, just too much glimmer for me.

 

Ecco Bella Soft Eyeliner Pencil in Bronze – Retail Value $17.95

I haven’t been wearing much eyeliner these days but when I do, I reach for a black liquid liner. This bronze cream pencil gives a more subtle look to your lids but could go on a little bit smoother, in my opinion. Nice to know that this one is all-natural though, especially for a product so close to the all-important eyes.

 

Fitglow Beauty Teddy Double Cheek Brush – Retail Value $36.00

Even though I have quite a few brushes already, I love getting them in subscription boxes. The silver brush offered here from Fitglow has dual ends that feature two sizes. One is larger and angled which makes it perfect for contouring while the other is a bit smaller and round for blush, powder, or whatever you need it for. Both ends are incredibly fluffy and soft with tri-toned synthetic bristles that make it vegan and cruelty-free.

 

Honeybee Gardens Truly Natural Lipstick in Swizzle – Retail Value $14.99

Y’all know I love my lipstick. The color “swizzle” we see here from Honeybee Gardens (cute name!) comes in a silver matte tube with a clear window in the lid and lil bee logo on top. The formula is really moisturizing and feels light on my lips. The pigment of swizzle isn’t incredibly deep but has a soft neutral/mauve tone that suits my skin tone quite well. A real classic lip color to me. This almost feels like a tinted balm since it’s so hydrating.

 

MG Naturals Mineral Illuminator in Rose Glow – Retail Value $16.96 USD

I always have a tough time taming loose powders without getting everything in my near vicinity covered. This illuminator comes loose with a dispenser not unlike a spice container that allows you to open and close to allow the right amount of powder through. Once you dip your new Fitglow brush into it simple tap the excess off and swirl around your face for a soft powder pink glow. This one uses some sparkle to achieve its look so if you’re looking for something more matte, like myself, keep moving.

 

Sacred Mama Superfood Beauty Oil, 1 oz. – Retail Value $48.00

Wow- this beauty oil smells fantastic. It’s most likely due to the orange, lime, and grapefruit oil it contains, along with a slew of other natural ingredients like cannabis sativa seed oil, and royal jelly, to name a few. It is quite oily on contact, but only a small amount is needed to spread around and quickly absorb into the skin. The scent lingers without being overpowering and brings soft elasticity to my face. This is quite a nice oil and is made to combat signs of aging and rejuvenate tired skin.

Swatches on Marne's hand

Here are swatches of any product with color on my hand. From top to bottom: bronzing oil, mineral powder, eyeliner, and lipstick.

Verdict: This month’s Organic Bunny Box contained eight items with a good mix of skincare and makeup. While some of it was too sparkly for me, I enjoyed the skincare, lipstick, and blush brush quite a bit. As always, this is a great way to discover new natural and organic brands that you may not know about otherwise. The overall retail value is estimated at $196.85.

  1. I want the brush but am otherwise no longer tempted by this box.

  2. Like last month’s box, I only kept about about half the box, but I still really enjoyed this month’s box. I kept the cleanser, eye cream, face oil, and lipstick. I plan on getting October’s box, but will sadly be taking a break in November & December due to the holidays. Hopefully, next month will be better for me, and I’ll keep most, if not all, of the box like past boxes.

  3. Looks like a great box! Just nothing I “need” and a high price point, which I totally understand.

  4. Thanks for the great review, Marne!
    I really want to love this subscription but each month there are several products I just wouldn’t use. At $59 I want to find at least three products I absolutely love, preferably with fairly high values. In September’s box I would probably like the lipstick, beauty oil, maybe the eyeliner depending on how much it tugs, and the sample size cleanser which I already have from another box. I definitely would hate the shimmer oil, the shimmer powder (especially in a loose formulation), and the brush because, I’m probably in the minority here, but I don’t like double-ended brushes. They make me paranoid about germs for some reason. The eye cream doesn’t look bad but just doesn’t sound like it would address my biggest issue, fine lines/wrinkles and a little sagging of my upper eyelids. I do think this would be a great cruelty free box for someone in their 20’s or 30’s. As much as I want it to work for me, partly because I love the reusable boxes, I think at 44 I need some stronger anti-aging products and a lot less sparkle. 😄

    • I hear ya, Dani! $59 is a higher price point and in this box, you definitely get more of a quantity of items than specialized high-price point products.

  5. The brush looks so nice to use.
