Goddess Provisions “Crystal Connection” April 2020 Review

 

The box comes with a short but informative booklet that outlines all of the goodies included this month. It also announces a new self-care oracle and guidebook that is now available. On the back, you’ll find “Divine Details” about all the great things that come with your subscription as well as their other digital subscription available.

 

Passport to Beauty Tiger’s Eye Power Roll-On – Retail Value $45.00

I’m always wary of getting fragrances in sub boxes, but this one is so subtle and pretty. It has a delicate orange scent with bergamot, honeysuckle, and cedarwood bark to make a truly “blissful” oil. I always enjoy it when fragrance comes in a rollerball because I find it so much easier to apply than a spray. This one is even more thoughtful since it comes with a tiger’s eye rollerball which is known for strength, vitality, and restoring balance. My friend Kelly really needs all of those things right now, so since I have so many fragrances already, I thought she’d appreciate this as a gift.

 

The Crystal Seer by Judy Hall – Listed Value $12.99 (Buy the hardcover for $13.39)

This pocket guide is a good resource for someone like me who owns a ton of crystals but doesn’t know the metaphysical properties of them all. Containing 167 pages of useful info on over 30 different crystals, this book has a wealth of information on each including how it was made, what it can be used for, and HOW to use them for various needs.

I can only find the hardcover version of this online, but this paperback has a $12.99 retail on the back.

 

SpaLife Crystal Sheet Mask in Jade Wisdom + Peace – Listed Value $3.00

Looks like this mask is specifically made for Urban Outfitters which is strange to see in a box but I’ll take it. This one has oil-absorbing matcha that is supposed to result in shine-free skin. I happen to like shiny dewy skin, so I was interested to see what this did. I suppose it could be good for oily skin in that respect. While on, it feels very cooling and the mask itself was pretty standard with a gel-like serum. Once removed, the serum didn’t seem excessive and what remained absorbed really well and it did leave my skin with a matte finish that felt a little tight. I think it did deliver on what it promised and the cooling sensation stayed with my skin for a while.

 

Lilac & Willow Moonstone Candle – Listed Value $12.00

This. Candle. Smells. So. Wonderful. I’ve been burning it in my bedroom in the evenings for while now and it creates a fresh scent with mint, coconut, cucumber, and vanilla throughout the second floor of my house. I have always been a sucker for candles infused with various things and this one is decorated with dried flowers and moonstones which make it look extra special.

 

Fine & Raw Chocolate – Listed Value $5.00

It is always such a lovely surprise to find chocolate in a place I wouldn’t expect it- like this box! Made by Brooklyn Chocolatier Fine & Raw, this 70% cacao chocolate bar only has a little bit of sea salt along with organic coconut sugar and cacao butter. The chocolate has just enough bite to it that makes it truly dark and decadent with that little bit of salt sprinkled in to cut it. A joyous little treat for me on this rainy afternoon!

 

Clear Quartz Crystal Pen by Goddess Provisions – Listed Value $11.00

I can be a bit of a pen snob and prefer a finer point than this one but the ballpoint is very smooth. The body of this custom pen is rose gold in color with a hollow top that contains clear quartz. This will be the perfect companion to the dream journal I received in my last Goddess Provisions box! It also comes with a black velvety pouch to prevent it from getting scratched that has a quote printed on it: “I write with intention and manifest my dreams.” What a lovely sentiment.

 

Labradorite Stone – Listed Value $6.00

As surprising as it is given my extensive crystal collection, this is one I don’t already have in my altar. If you believe in metaphysical properties, this stone provides protection and transformation, making it perfect for meditation while placed on your third eye chakra. It will awaken psychic powers and expand consciousness as mentioned in the booklet which is something I can get down with on a personal level. While I can’t say that I fully believe in the powers of crystals and stones, at the very least it can’t hurt to try and I believe that we can conquer a lot with our minds and with our own self-exploration and work with or without them.

Digital Bonus: Rachel Otis Therapy – Resourcing Your Crystalline Resilience

This 42-page digital book is written by Rachel Otis and is a “crystal-infused healing journey to transform limiting beliefs into limitless potential through guided meditations, somatic experiencing, yogic wisdom, journal prompts, and more.” Each page allows Rachel to guide me with somatic therapy which is a holistic therapy that studies the relationship between the mind and body in regard to the psychological past. There are actions, journal prompts, yoga poses, self-care tips, and educational pieces about various stones and crystals coupled with affirmations to get desirable results within the digital pages. I think this book has several exercises that could be completed to combat stress and work through difficult times. I find the prompts to be super helpful and view them to be a great place for me to start with a better spiritual wellness regimen.

The Verdict: Goddess Provisions sent seven items this month with a bonus digital book that has an estimated total of $94.99. Most of what was included ended up being custom and I couldn’t find it for sale online to check the values from the info card. That means that the true value of this box lies with the subscriber. The high-value hero item this month was the fragrance which I did find nice and liked that it had a tigers eye rollerball. The mask and candle were probably my next favorites and the pocket guide was really helpful too.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, but new subscribers can choose a Self-Care of Amethyst box to ship by May 20.

Value Breakdown: At $33.00 for this box, you’re paying $4.71 for each item.

  1. So tigers eye actually has a pretty high asbestos content, and while that isn’t a problem in wearing it at jewelry or having it in your home, it actually shouldn’t be used in waters or oils because it can dissolve or degrade and potentially become toxic to some degree. That rollerball just seems like a less than great idea.

    • Innnteresting. I’ve seen tiger’s eye used in other rollerballs as well. I’ll definitely be doing some more research on this.

  2. Well, looks a little sparse to me for the price. I mean, 45 bucks for that roll-on? Puh-leeze. I like this sub, always have, think it’s sweet, used to subscribe but felt that I wasn’t getting the value for the price. Also – let’s get the nutty mystical pseudoscience out of the way, no, crystals can’t do anything except sit there and be pretty. Which is okay – I got lots, spread out all over my place because I really do think they’re pretty.

    • Agree 100% with all you said! 🙂 I subbed for a couple of months and liked what I got (especially this February’s amethyst box! swoon), but didn’t think it was worth keeping as a sub. I’m glad I didn’t get this box, even though I would use most of the items, I don’t think it’s worth the price.
