You may know from reading my blog that My Subscription Addiction is my favorite blog for keeping up with all subscription boxes. The blogger of the site, Liz Cadman, has opened so many boxes that she knows what works in a subscription and what is a dud. She has fantastic taste and particularly likes organic beauty products. Basically shes awesome and recently came out with a subscription box of her own on Quarterly. I knew this was gonna be good so I signed up, and not long after it sold out! Her site is very popular! For $50 her box comes once a quarter. Here’s what I got for fall.
This box included a letter from Liz about why she picked each item and the price breakdown for each.
Raw Naturals Candle in Chai Latte, $24 – This is my favorite item in the box! Chai Latte is my favorite drink from Starbucks so I love the smell of cream and spices. It’s all natural and has a wood wick for a fun crackling sound. I have already burned it many times!
Simonetta Infinity Knit Scarf, $25 – This was my least favorite item in the box only because of the color combo. I’m not a fan of brown or red and there were other colors that went out that I liked better. But oh well, it will make a great Christmas gift! It is very soft and infinity style.
Tatcha Polished Classic Rice Enzyme Powder, $65 – The packaging from this brand is so beautiful I had to take several pictures! Also I would never buy a face wash this expensive so it’s fun to get something indulgent like this in a box. This is a cleanser/exfoliator in a powder form. You wet your face then shake some power into your hand, wet it, and massage over face. The powder is pretty fine, and does not have a strong smell. It took my makeup off well and left my skin feeling soft and clean.
Juice Beauty Reflecting Gloss, $15 – There was a few colors that went out and I got Guava which is a sheer red. It is not sticky at all, has a light scent and is completely natural. I like it!
Fig + Yarrow Cardamom + Coffee Body Scrub, $22 – My sample came without a label on the front so I decided to use this picture. This scrub is made with organic and all natural ingredients and has many skin benefits. There’s glycolic acid for natural exfoliation; cocoa, coconut and shea butters are highly moisturizing and nourishing; and castor oil is good for skin detoxification and repair. At first the scent of coffee really hit me and I wasn’t loving it. I sued it on my arms and hands in the sink and it felt great, but left my skin really dirty and my arms tinged brown and with coffee bits on them. I finally wiped all that off and it really did feel moisturizing, and then the scent of cardamom came through and I liked it. The full size isn’t something I would buy myself so it was fun to try this out.
Also included were three coupons to Tatcha, Fig + Yarrow and Just Fab shoes. I haven’t used any of them but they were a nice addition.
Overall I was very pleased with this box; the candle and face wash really stood out to me. I liked it so much that I signed up for the subscription before it sold out for winter. What’s great is that Liz has been asking for feedback on her site and what people would like to see for the winter box. I’m hoping for another candle, an eyeshadow palette, body creme, and a flavored hot chocolate! What do you think of the first My Subscription Addiction box?
