Reviewing CAUSEBOX: The Summer 2018 Box Reveal

5 Jul

After years of only getting the FabFitFun box, I recently had a weak moment and ordered another quarterly subscription box: CAUSEBOX. They released a few spoilers for the Summer 2018 box and I loved every single one of them…so I bit the bullet and bought myself a subscription with some of my ‘I sold a bunch of stuff on Facebook/Poshmark’ money.

About CAUSEBOX:
Every season, members receive a limited edition curation of products from the leading socially conscious brands. Some of them are designed exclusively for CAUSEBOX. Each box is designed and filled with love. From the original artwork on the outside of the box, to the lovingly handmade products that fill it up, there is love in every detail. The cost is $49.95 per quarter if you subscribe annually, or $54.95 per quarter if you subscribe by the quarter.

The Summer CAUSEBOX #1 (the one I received) sold out in record time. However, they launched Summer CAUSEBOX #2 which contains many of the same items and it is still available! {This information is as of today when I checked their website} I don’t have a referral code to give you, but if you click on their website you might see a pop-up with a promo code on it: www.causebox.com

Here is what was in my box:

D.Stil Reusable Water Bottle, $14.99 retail value
I was able to choose between a pink metal version and a blue glass version of the water bottle. I decided to go with the pink bottle because I love metal water bottles and we use them ALL THE TIME at my house. This one has a really nice powdered paint coating and with the pretty pink hue I have a feeling my husband won’t steal it from me!

Fair Seas Supply Organic Cotton Turkish Towel, $44.00 retail value
This do-everything Turkish towel was sustainably made from Organic Cotton. I saw this pretty yellow striped towel on their spoilers and I had to have it! It can be used as a beach towel, picnic blanket or even a cute sarong wrap. I took it with me over the weekend to the beach and wore it as a sarong, shoulder cover-up (when I felt like I was getting too much sun) and blanket to sit on. LOVE IT!

Kevia Wear it 6 Ways Tassel Necklace, $55.00 retail value
This tassel necklace can be worn 6 different ways and was ethically made in an environmentally sustainable way in China. This is the only item in the whole box that is not very ‘me’, so I think this one will go into my trade or gift pile.

Tribe Alive Foldover Clutch, $128 retail value
The reversible fold-over clutch was handmade by artisans in Jaipur, India and finished with a gorgous gold chain and tassel. This was exclusively designed for CAUSEBOX and annual members were able to choose between three colors. I went with the pretty pink version! It is the perfect size and color for the beach and I can see me getting lots of use out of it this summer and also in December for my sister’s cruise wedding trip. The only thing I don’t like about this clutch is that if you fold it over (as I prefer), you can’t use the chain. The chain only works if the clutch is fully opened into a rectangle.

Here’s a closer look:

Karuna Natural Fiber Sheet Mask (set of 4), $28.00 retail value
Karuna was the first sheet mask brand to launch in the US and they work with Beauty Bus to provide beauty treatments for hospital patients. I love Karuna masks, so I was excited to try a new version of them. Pro Tip: Make sure to check the beauty aisles at TJMaxx and Marshalls, because sometimes you can find Karuna sheet masks for just $10.

Zoya Nail Polish (set of 3), $30.00 retail value
This set of three summer-ready nail polishes is from the company that is pioneering the elimination of toxic ingredients from nail products. I love the bright color one and I might try the nude one on my nails for a subtle polished look.

L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil, $18.00 retail value
This almond shower oil cleanses softly while helping to hydrate and nourish the skin. This beauty brand is working to empower women in West Africa and harvest almonds responsibly. One of my absolute favorite scents is almond, so this one is going immediately into my shower.

Coco Davez Exclusive Art Print, $10.00 retail value
This art print was designed by Spanish artist Coco Davez and can either be framed or sent to a friend as a postcard. I love the look of this print, so it may be added to somewhere in my house… not sure where yet though.

Overall Thoughts
I’m so happy I bought this box! I love almost every single thing in my first CAUSEBOX, especially the clutch, water bottle and Turkish towel. I really wish I liked the tassel necklace… I may have to play around with it a bit. I added up the retail values of everything in my box and it came to $328, so this box was quite a deal!

    Definitely, the clutch is my favorite! That is very cute. Maybe you can attach a chain. Have fun with it!
