Welp, I pulled a Leah and accidentally purchased the Spring Causebox subscription box.
You may be asking yourself how that's possible. I subscribed to Causebox in December because I wanted to give some of the items in the box as gifts (which, by the way, worked out wonderfully. Lower cost, beautifully curated ethical gifts for all the women in my life). Then I simply forgot to unsubscribe. When I got the email that my spring Causebox was shipping soon, I decided it was better to embrace it than beat myself up about it.
And honestly, I'm really happy with it...
If you haven't heard of Causebox, you need to. They're one of the better curated ethical subscription boxes on the market. Where GlobeIn offers more artisan made goods, Causebox offers items from slightly bigger brands that still adhere to eco and social-good standards.
The spring box contains:
- Symbology Kimono, $105 value
- PF Candle Co. Reed Diffuser, $22 value
- Soko Petite Bow Earrings, $42 value
- Bloom & Give Malabar Tea Towels, $24 value
- Scentuals Rosehip Beauty Oil, $23.19 value
- Juice Beauty Ultra-Natural Mascara, $24 value
- Marylou Faure Postcard, $10 value
I've heard of the fashion brands (Symbology, Soko, and Bloom & Give) and can vouch for their ethics, but I was less familiar with the lifestyle products. After reading up on the other brands, I feel good about supporting all of them.
I was excited to receive mascara, as I haven't purchased or worn mascara since last year, when I gave up makeup for Lent. This mascara lightly defines without any clumpiness or shedding. I'm looking forward to using it more to see if it continues to work for my sensitive eyes.
The Soko bow earrings are really nice, and make a statement without standing out too much.
But my very favorite item is the full sized Rosehip oil. It's light but still really moisturizing and it doesn't cause any irritation. I add a little into my standard, unscented lotion at night.
The other items are beautiful and well-made, but maybe a little bit less essential to my life. The Reed diffuser has added a nice spa-like touch to my bathroom, though. We're hosting some of Daniel's family this week and they seem to like it.
ConclusionAll in all, I'm thrilled with this box. Each item is something I can use and I'm particularly happy to have been introduced to Juice Beauty and Scentuals.
I would recommend Causebox if you're looking to sample artisan goods at a lower price point or if you want to purchase a premium gift.
