Fall 2019 RosePost Box “Replenish” 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 was also a promotional card from one of the brands in the box.
Emanate Essentials Rose Quartz Botanical Soap – Retail Value $14.50
This is sure pretty to look at. As a scientist, I’m not really a believer in crystals and vibrations and such, but I do rather like gemstones and minerals since I am into jewelry making. The instructions say to remove the rose quartz before using the soap but I didn’t really see how it could do harm and I didn’t want to pry it out, so I just left it there and used the soap, which has a light rose scent and did not dry out my skin. It’s lovely soap although a bit messy to open (there are rose petals all over the area where I take photos, now…).
Natural Cosmetic Rosa Pretiosa Cleansing Face Foam (150 mL) – Retail Value $21
This worked well for cleaning my oily face midday on a weekend but I think it would also be good as the second step in a double cleanse. (Naturally since I bought a full-sized foaming cleanser a month ago I am receiving them right and left in subscription boxes. But it is the type of item I use on a daily basis so it is nice to have backups on hand.) This is from a European brand but you can buy more in the RosePost Box shop (just click the link in the name). I did not find it irritating at all (I have sensitive skin) and I like that it is free of artificial colors and fragrances.
La Bloom Beauty Bloom Face Mist (30 mL) – Retail Value $21
I am not much for spraying my face with anything, but this has rose water and witch hazel so it is a good toner if sprayed on a cotton pad. I will use this up pretty quickly as winter is getting nearer and I do prefer alcohol-free toners in the colder months. This has silver dihydrogen citrate as a preservative, which is something I hadn’t seen before but EWG thinks it is pretty safe (and they’re a bit harsher in their judgments of products than I am). I do know the silver ion has antibacterial properties and this would be an alternative to organic-based preservatives like parabens (I don’t avoid them, but some people do).
Nard and Grass Rose and Neroli Moisturizing Cream (30 mL) – Retail Value $31
This is hard to find for sale outside of Bulgaria but the RosePost Box shop has you covered. This is really, really thick, almost more of a balm than a cream. It would work on super dry and chapped skin and was a little more moisture than I needed for my face, but I think it would be perfect for dry elbows and heels and such during the winter months. It would also probably be a good cuticle cream.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $87.50 for the Fall 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 felt like this was a good box for preparing for winter, with a gentle cleanser and an alcohol-free toner and a thick, heavy moisturizing cream. One other thing I think is nice is that if something isn’t widely available in the US, you can usually find it in the RosePost Box shop, so if you encounter an item you love, you can always easily get more.
