JourneeBox Winter 2020 Review
FYI: This review has all customization variations! You will receive one of each in your box based on your selections for this quarter.
Included is a highly detailed booklet with info about all of the products. The theme this month is "A Journee to the Qingdao!" Our booklet arrived this month with gorgeous Chinese paper cutting, featuring waves and scallops that nod to this unique coastal city and its traditions. It really added so much to an already exceptional unboxing experience!
Monoi and Hops Bath Scrub - Listed Value $38.00
Our first item is a yummy smelling salt body scrub! Inside is a mix of salt, coconut oil, tropical flowers (tiare, frangipani, and hibiscus), and hops! Inspired by the beer culture of Qingdao, the hops add such a nice earthy touch to a very soft and mild smelling scrub. I found this formula much less abrasive than many other salt scrubs and the coconut oil left my skin soft and hydrated. I especially loved this on my legs!
Set of 2 Organic Napkins - Listed Value $29.00
These 18 x18 inch cotton napkins are printed with a traditional Chinese wave pattern in navy. Inspired by the unique seafood cuisine of Qingdao, these are a lovely accompaniment to a meal for two and can elevate all of those at-home dinners we are all living through right now.
They also make truly adorable bandanas if you are into this sort of scarf look!
Ombre Scarf in Blue OR Grey - Retail Value $98.00
FYI: This scarf is huge! Around 50 inches long and 75 inches wide.
Subscribers could choose from ombre options in grey OR blue.
The scarf included this month is one of those perfect blanket types that are heavy enough to keep you warm in the spring chills, but not heavy at all. I am currently hunkered down in my drafty unfinished dining room while we finish up some work in my office, and this is the perfect sort of wrap.
Here I am all bundled up!
Theme Box Necklace Set - Listed Value $61.00
Subscribers could choose from sterling silver OR 18k gold plate.
This subscription always has really lovely jewelry. This set of 5 necklaces is a great example of that! Subscribers could choose between sterling silver or gold plate, and truly there is no wrong choice. Everything is lovely! This is exactly the sort of jewelry I find myself loving lately: simple, luxe, and layerable. The biggest stunner is that lapis design, IMO. It wears on the longer side and the contrast of the chunky stone dangling from such a delicate chain is gorgeous. It also looks great when you wear it with some of the shorter necklaces. Each necklace also has a 4-inch extender built-in, so you can wear it exactly how long you prefer.
Here is a little gallery of all the necklaces on individually.
Ceramic Vase OR Marble Jar - Listed Value $38.00
Subscribers could choose one of these two styles for their box.
We like having little containers like this in my kitchen to keep our favorite teas separate.
Stationery & Referral Set - Listed Value $32.00
This stationery set is interesting because it can be used as traditional stationery for any message or you can use the included flat cards to invite any friends you want to join Journeebox. If they do, you both get a special gift next month in your box. If that isn't your style, no worries. You still have a gorgeous set of 5 different cards to send some snail mail to whomever you want!
Three-Pair Earring Set - Listed Value $48.00
FYI: This is an annual subscribers only item.
Annual subscribers could choose from sterling silver OR 18k gold plate.
Our last item is a set of three earrings that will arrive in the boxes of annual subscribers. Again, you get a choice of metal color, which is really nice! I immediately was in love with the hoops. They are the perfect size and the hammered texture really speaks to me. These are the sort of earrings I will wear all the time! The crystal stud with the half-circle was also really modern looking and geometric in a great way. The third earring is a little pave bar that is adorable in a multi-piercing stacked look.
And here they are on!
Verdict: JourneeBox is always filled with exciting and high-quality items, and this month was really fun to unbox! I think my favorite item would have to be that necklace set. It just felt above and beyond! I also loved the scarf and I am finding it quite functional as I work from home. The salt scrub was beautifully formulated and the container and stationery set felt very on theme for this Qingdao-inspired box. If I had to say anything was missing, it might have been nice for some sort of sweet treat to have been included, but this box still felt wonderfully complete as is. This continues to be a box I look forward to every quarter.
