Margot Elena Spring 2020 Review
This box comes with a card detailing all of the items included. I adore the watercolor illustration design this quarter!
‘Song of the Siren’ No 49 Shea Butter Handcreme, 2.7 oz – Retail Value $22.00
Three cheers for hand cream! Anyone else have chapped dry hands from obsessive handwashing? While I don’t know if I am in love with this particular scent (a blend of rosewater, cirtus, and fresh ocean notes) I do love how soft it makes my hands. It absorbs really fast and the shea butter is a relief for my dry skin.
Dead Sexy No. 06 ‘Fearless’ Travel Candle, 4 oz – Listed Value $12.00
I love when this box has a candle inside. I love to light them in my bedroom when I am reading, then blow them out before the lights go down. This is a blend of bergamot, juicy plums, white petals, and musk. It is more than a little sexy!
‘At Last’ Eau De Parfum, 1.69 fl oz – Retail Value $60.00
This is such a sentimental perfume. An explosion of white florals with powdery rice flowers, it has this ethereal vibe that reminds me of fresh flowers and vellum paper cards. This is a very sweet and pretty scent that I think a lot of people will enjoy, myself included.
Finest Perfumed Soap, 8 oz – Retail Value $12.00
Some of you may know that we recently remodeled a guest bathroom, and though it is not 100% complete, I have been hoarding pretty bar soaps for an antique soap dish that fits on the antique sink just perfectly! This bar will go to that collection. I love how soft the formula makes my hands feel and the bright floral scent.
Dead Sexy Lip Balm, 17 g – Retail Value $10.00
This isn’t the most moisturizing or hydrating lip balm in my collection, but it certainly might be the best dressed! The scent is also interesting to me: a mix of rose, smoke, and… maybe leather? I mean, whatever it is, it totally works. It is a great daytime balm while I save the heavy hitters for the evening.
‘Arboretum’ Parfum Crema, 2.5 oz – Listed Value $21.00
This is a scent that has been re-released from the Library of Flowers archives. I wasn’t sure I liked it very much, but for me, this was one of those scents you have to just apply and then let it woo you throughout the day. Best described as a yellow floral, the big notes here are ylang-ylang and cardamom, with an amber base. When I first applied this perfumed cream, this felt way too sharp for my nose. Give it a few minutes though and that spice kick takes over, and it turns into something that is somehow both like playing in a humid forest and being in an exotic spice market. Big fan of this.
Japanese Plum & White Tea Dry Body Oil, 4 fl oz – Retail Value $26.00
This is a familiar product for me, and one that I liked very much. My mom liked it even more, so I gave it to her. It is great that I have a bottle of my own now! The scent here is mild and a little sweet. It actually smells exactly like I expected it to! The oil is a blend of coconut, sweet almond, and grape seed, and while I don’t recommend this for your face, it is super nourishing for your body, especially dry knees and legs. I also love that this is such a generous size and has an easy to use little pump nozzle.
Cucumber & Honey Bubble Bath, 16 fl oz – Retail Value $32.00
This is one massive glass bottle of bubble bath! You can get so many baths out of this! It is in fact, so large, that there is an included pump. Excellent! The scent is soft and clean, a mix of cucumber and honey, but heavier on the cucumber. It smells exactly like something I would want to soak in on a spring evening with the windows open and a book that I hopefully don’t drop into the tub. Loads of bubbles here too, so you don’t have to use a lot. I also tried it out as a shower gel, which worked, but not as well as an actual Margot Elena bubble bath. Still, it cleaned my skin and washed away without leaving anything behind but a soft scent.
‘Dream’ Perfumed Shower Gel, 8 fl oz – Retail Value $22.00
This is hands down my favorite brand of shower gel. The consistency is so thick and luxurious! Just a little in my hands creates such a thick and fragrant lather. ‘Dream’ is also a lovely scent that I really enjoy. It is bright and shining with notes of tea and honeysuckle. It smells super “clean” if that makes sense? I am always SO happy to get a big tube of shower gel in this box. I hope to never run out.
Verdict: My Margo Elena Subscription Box arrived at the perfect time. Since we are all stuck at home a little more often these days, I have been trying to slow myself down and really enjoy things like showers, baths, and a candle before bed with a cup of tea. I am naturally an incredibly hurried person, and now with nowhere to go, I am trying to embrace the beauty of normal things I would typically rush through. Everything in this box felt like an act of self-care, and I am really pleased with this assortment. This feel-good box has an overall value of $217, which is really wonderful for a $49.95 box.
