Alltrue (formerly CAUSEBOX) is a $54.95 (or $49.95 per box with an annual subscription) quarterly subscription box that features brands and items dedicated to doing good all over the world. Many featured brands donate a portion of proceeds to charities and/or may employ local artisans, use ethically sourced goods, etc.
FYI: Only annual subscribers are able to choose customizations.
The colors of this box are so cute and very fall! I always enjoy the artwork from this brand.
Customization 1: Silicone & Beechwood Measuring Spoon Set - Retail Value $12.59
FYI: Annual subscribers can choose from this item or Natural Wool Dryer Balls or Grown Alchemist Hydra Repair Day Cream.
I actually had a set of measuring spoons on my to-buy list since Will recently used my old set for paint pigments and now I am terrified of poisoning myself by using them ever again. This set is actually much cuter than my old one and I have already clearly explained to Will that these do not leave the kitchen. Ever.
Anyway, I love the soft blues and greens and the silicon material is sturdy and easy to clean too! The largest spoon (a tablespoon) is made of wood.
Customization 2: Henny + Lev Vegan Leather 2-in-1 Everyday Tote- Retail Value $130
FYI: Annual subscribers can choose from this item or a Set of 5 Stackable Pantry Containers from Small:Hours or Tease Smart Heated Mug or an Earth Harbor Seas the Day Luxury Skincare Bundle or an LSTN Wanderlust Portable Speaker.
Most of you know I am not a faux-leather fan in most cases but I will make an exception for this purse for one main reason: it is big enough for my laptop! I have a 15 inch MacBook Pro and it slides in easily. A little bit overlaps the top but I am fine with that. Inside is plenty of room for a few books, a notepad, and a pen case. There are also some internal pockets. As far as pleather goes, this stuff is thick and feels pretty good. It also had none of that chemical scent we so often associate with the fake stuff. This is exactly the sort of bag I reach for when I am on the go for business things but need the room and durability of a backpack. This offers a ton of space and strength but with a more polished look.
Will is out of town right now so I am left to taking timed selfies. This bag measures about 12.5 inches tall and 14 inches across.
Customization 3: Mintbiology Seaweed Collagen Gold Eye Masks, 10 pairs - Retail Value $34.99
FYI: Annual subscribers can choose from this item or a Bemakai: Manta Hair Towel Wrap.
I always enjoy having eye gels on hand because sometimes your undereye area just needs this sort of treat! These are a metallic gold gel and have a slight rose scent. They have 24k gold, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and oat peptides inside which together hydrate and soothe. As usual, I recommend popping them into your fridge before use!
Customization 4: Each Layering Necklaces
FYI: Annual subscribers can choose from this item or Headbands of Hope: Set of 2 Knotted Headbands or Aloette Cosmetics Winkable Lift & Lengthen Vegan Mascara.
I am all here for the dainty layered trend that jewelry is experiencing now, though, in my opinion, the pieces have to look high quality to have the most impact. And, sure, I can't be out spending $$$ on actual gold chains, so plated versions make a good financial choice. The quality with these is lacking, IMO, especially on the smaller chain. It gets kinks constantly and just doesn't look super luxe on, regardless of the 14k gold plating. The larger, open-chain gets closer to the sort of quality I would want and I decided to remove the extender which helped immensely in terms of styling. I will probably wear that one often (I haven't noticed any turning or green on my neck after a few days).
The smaller chain measures 16 inches (19 with the extender) and the larger is 18 inches (21 with the extender).
Customization 5: Accompany Jute Welcome Mat
FYI: Annual subscribers can choose from this item or Botanica Speckled Ceramic Candle or a Serene House Ion Fan Diffuser & Inspire Essential Oil.
I have never been one to go all out for fall decorating. I just don't usually think about it until it is too late! I do, however, change out my welcome mats and this jute one is really freaking cute. I appreciate how it feels fall because of the material but is also minimal. While it is a pretty standard doormat size, I plan on layering it with a slightly larger rubber one to keep it dry and (hopefully) cleaner.
It measures about 26 inches by 16 inches.
In Every Box: Huna Vegan Nourish Skin Nutrition Balm, 1.7 fl oz - Retail Value $80.00
FYI: This item will be in every box.
The retail price of this stuff feels really high, even to me. Aside from those price-related feelings, I loved the formula itself. I am a big fan of moisturizing balms like this and I often use them as cleansers (which I highly recommend you try!). The sunshine yellow balm is formulated with so many delightfully lipid-rich and antioxidant-heavy oils and tons of plant extracts and vitamins. Despite this, it still somehow feels light on my skin, though it does leave behind a sheen that might make it feel more appropriate for evening use. It also makes an absolutely incredible cuticle oil and smells wonderfully bright, of citrus and lavender.
And in every box, Alltrue includes a postcard print you can mail or frame. This one features a fruity motif in autumnal colors.
This season's Alltrue did feel very "fall"! I liked the mix of all sorts of items (beauty, home, fashion). I also think this was a pretty good value for $55 and even the items that might not fit into your home or closet will make great gifts. The average cost of the 6 items in this box is $9.16 (I did not include the art print in this calculation). I do think there were some slight quality issues with the necklaces, but I feel like subscription box jewelry can be really hit or miss in general. I still would have liked to have seen something nicer. The purse was a surprising hit for me in terms of safely hauling stuff to and from work and school and, if I am honest, the fact that it isn't real leather makes me feel like I can treat it a little less carefully in terms of rain or dark denim that might rub off. The mat was such a cute and fun addition and it makes me smile. I will guard the measuring spoons with my life (watch out Will) and the balm was also a treat!
