The other day I was scrolling the Instagram & realized that one of my friends received a subscription box, Cause Box. It is more of a lifestyle box than a beauty box; like Birchbox or Ipsy. I don’t think Birchbox and Ipsy are worth the $10 because I only ever like/use about half of what I get. I would compare Cause Box to like FabFitFun, about the same price & items. This subscription box is delivered four times a year and is cheaper if you pay for the full-year up front.
So here’s what was in the box….
–Haiti Design Co. key chain; retails at $14
I put this on my keys instead of my purse because the key chain has gold hardware and my purse has silver.
–Altru Notebook & Bookmark; retails at $24
This book is absolutely adorable and feels really nice in your hand, the notebook is lined and I think I am going to use it as a recipe book.
–Pura Vida Bracelets; retails at $10
It came with a teal bracelet and a pink & purple bracelet. I don’t love the pink bracelet so I think I’m going to gift it to a friend, but these feel like they’re great quality. I think they may be waxed and the size is adjustable. I honestly think I might wear this as an anklet if it fits, I can definitely see myself wearing it every day.
–Kálos Detox Face Mask; retails at $39
I have not tried this face mask yet but once I do I will update this post and let you know about my experience. At first impressions, the packaging is super high-quality.
–Nashelle (Adjustable) Wave Ring; retails at $46
This ring is beautiful, the fact that it’s adjustable is really cool but I don’t normally wear rings so I can’t figure out how to make it smaller. It is too big for all of my fingers, including my thumb. This ring is rose gold and compliments my skin tone (and any skin tone) really well.
–Mason Jar Company Cup, Straw & Cap; retails at $20
This is one of my favorite things that came in this box, the mason jar is huge (a little more than 18 oz/2 cups). The mint cap that it comes with has a hole in the top for the straw. Mason jars are easy to clean and just have a great aesthetic. I think this will be nice for iced teas or fruit waters. Or if you’re a smoothie person.
–All Good Coconut Sunscreen; retails at $8.99
This came just in time because I am going to the beach for a week next week, this is the perfect size for a beach bag, makeup bag, or purse. This sunscreen smells really great and offers 30 SPF protection. I will add a review once I try it next week. I’ll share how my face reacts to it.
–Shelley Steer RELAX Print; retails for $10
The box included a print that matches the print of the box & it has gold-foiled letters. This is small but I think it’ll look really nice in my new college apartment. In the photo I didn’t take the plastic off, in real life, it is matte, besides the foiled words.
-Kuli Kuli Superfood (Sample)
This is used as a smoothie mix, it is supposed to be 1 full serving of vegetables. In the packet, they give a recommended recipe.
Ingredients: 2 Kuli Kuli packets, 1 1/2 cups of water, 12 oz chopped romaine lettuce, 1/2 bunch of spinach, 4 stalks of celery, 1 apple (seeded, cored, quartered), 1 pear (seeded, quartered), 1 banana (halved), 1/2 lemon (halved)
I don’t drink smoothies so I might give this to a friend. I don’t ever use a blender because I’m lazy and that sounds like way more vegetables & fruit than needed in a day.
This box was $55 but the items inside were worth $171.
The only thing I can’t see myself using is the Superfood packets and those weren’t even included in the $171. 100% worth it.
