The Organic Bunny Box November 2019 Review
You get a really nicely designed and sturdy reusable gift box each month that houses all of your organic goodies. The design of the box changes often and I think this black version with silver and gold stars has to be my favorite! But don’t worry- it ships in an outer cardboard box to preserve the nice gift box. 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.
Araza Rejuvenating Coconut Lip Color in Umber – Retail Value $26.00
Can it be? A lip gloss that I like? This is unheard of! It uses organic coconut seed oil and castor oil to hydrate and essential oils which must contain some citrus because this smells very orange or lemony to me which I love. It has a gentle color to it and makes my lips super shiny without being sticky. There is some stevia in here for some ungodly reason but thank goodness I cannot taste it. Umber is a lovely color as well (swatched at the bottom)!
Elina Organics Probiotic Polishing Mask, 2 oz. – Retail Value $55.00
I’m always interested in these probiotic products that pop up in subscription boxes. This one has a lovely orange scent and is a lot softer than I had imagined. This is gonna sound weird but it’s sort of like a gritty gelato (that is obv room temp). It’s sort of whipped but not really. So hard to explain the texture of this one! Anyhow, I massaged this creamsicle-like mask into my wet face for a few minutes until the grittiness dissolved. It got a bit creamy and I left it on my face for 5-10 minutes which was quite pleasant. Afterward, I removed it with a warm damp washcloth to reveal really bright skin that looked fresh and dewy. The label suggests using this 1-2 times a week and I will have no problem doing that. Very happy with the results here.
Gia Minerals Eye Shadow in Brandy, 0.11 oz. – Retail Value $20.00
I’m more of a palette kinda gal for eyeshadow but this shadow from Gia Minerals packs quite a pigmented punch! This golden satin bronze color is gorgeous on and only a little bit is needed to make a bold look. The soft loose powder makes it easy to start strong and it can be blended out easily into other colors or used alone. Minimal fallout was detected by me so I’d call this a solid shadow!
Kismet Buff Bright and Bubbly Sugar Lip Scrub, 1 oz. – Retail Value $12.00
If you read my reviews you know I love lip scrub. This is less scrubby than I’d like but it is really conditioning. Overall, I wish this was a little thicker since once I spread it on, it’s almost like an oil treatment and the scrubbies aren’t as plentiful as I’d like. It has a sweet “pink champagne” flavor/scent to it that’s nice but I prefer more of a paste to my scrubs. I think this would make a good overnight treatment though!
Moroccan Magic Rescue Balm in Elderberry & Manuka Honey – Estimated Value $4.67 (Buy 3 for $14)
I used to complain about the number of lip balms I receive in the wintertime via sub boxes, but I secretly love it. I need lip balm on me or near me at all times when its cold out (but really, all year long). I have one in every single coat pocket (I have MANY) and they are on my bed stand, near my couch, in my car, at my desk… etc. This one is currently in the pocket of my new parka and each time I reach for it, forgetting what kind it is, I am pleasantly surprised. I think both the elderberry and manuka honey both come out in this balm and it’s HECKA moisturizing. Like, for real. My lips feel like soft pillows after a swipe of this stuff.
Osmia Purely Simple Face Cream, 1.7 oz. – Retail Value $60.00
I was not expecting much from this for some reason but MY GOSH I love it! It’s not as thick as I’d think a moisturizer would be, but only half a pump is needed for my entire face and it feels so hydrating and fantastic. It’s almost like an oil moisturizer. It also smells wonderful due to the Roman chamomile and I just love the chubby bottle. This was a real sleeper for me and I’ve been reaching for this more than anything else I’ve gotten this month.
Peeled Snacks Organic Dried Apple, 1.23 oz. – Retail Value $2.59
I pretty much devoured these immediately upon opening. Dried fruit rules and there’s no sugar added here which makes the only ingredient organic apples. A great snack that is both healthy and delicious. I always appreciate the Organic Bunny Box hooking up a little treat.
Rituals + Alchemy Sleep Juju, 9 ct – Estimated Value $20.70 (Buy 30 packets for $69)
I was really excited to see these because I love to sleep and winding down beforehand is something I need help with. Rituals like sleepy time tea, a little reading, and some lavender pillow spray always feel nice. I’m sorry to report that I really did not like this. The only reason: stevia! I’ve shouted loudly about my dislike for the sugar alternative and apparently I will continue to do so until my dying day. Without it, I would have most likely loved this single-serving powder filled with mulberry, reishi, jujube seed, and Schisandra berry but they went ahead and ruined it for me. If you don’t mind the taste of stevia, then you may very well enjoy this one!
Sunia K. Rose Water, 4 oz. – Retail Value $27.00
I normally love rose water but this one is perhaps too concentrated or something for me. Perhaps because it’s pure and I need my rose scents watered down for me to tolerate them. For those who love the scent of distilled rose water, you’ll love this. It’s a good full-sized bottle as well and has a great mister on it, so I’m a little sad that this one isn’t for me.
Here are swatches for the lip gloss and eyeshadow.
Verdict: The Organic Bunny Box was full of surprises this month. I loved almost everything in it except for the sleep juju packet and rose water. This subscription is recommended for those who want to try a lot of different clean beauty and cruelty-free brands across skincare, makeup, and even snacks. They always have a great mix of products and I’m often discovering new brands. The nine items included in the box have a retail value of $227.96 which is quite a steal for $59!
