Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!
Today I’m sharing my unboxing and first impressions of my Spring 2021 CAUSEBOX. If you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen my unboxing, but here I share my first impressions, and total value of the subscription box. [info in italics taken from CAUSEBOX]
FIVE CORNERSTONES DEFINE EVERYTHING THAT WE DO AT CAUSEBOX. WE ARE: COMMUNITY FOCUSED, ETHICALLY MADE, ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS, FOR WOMEN, AND IMPACT DRIVEN.
This quarter’s artwork was done by Charlotte Molas.
I have a basic subscription, so I don’t get to choose the items that I receive. But I like the element of surprise.
Now lets take a look at what I received:
Product 1 – FEED Projects Canvas Market Tote $108 USD
All subscribers received the tote, in one of three colours – glacial grey, coastal stripe or sea blue. I received glacial grey. I was excited about this reusable shopping bag, it is a great size, has loads of pockets, and is sturdy and well made. I will be using this for groceries / errands.
Product 2 – Palm + Perkins Set of 4 Upcycled Napkins $38 USD
For the second product, there were three possibilities: the Upcycled Napkins, a Nimble CHAMP Lite Portable Charger, or the DIFF Charitable Eyewear Finn Sea Tortoise Blue Light Glasses. I received the napkins – they’re made from upcycled cotton and plastic water bottles – they feel almost like a linen blend fabric, they’ll be well used in our house as I needed to replace a few of the cloth napkins that we’ve had in rotation.
I would have liked to receive the portable charger as well, this is something that I would definitely use. The blue light glasses, not so much, as I wear prescription glasses (with the blue light filter).
Product 3 – This Works Stress Check Sleep Spray $25 USD
For the third product, all subscribers received this aromatherapy bed spray. It smells really nice, and I will definitely put it to use.
Product 4 – Glass Ladder & Co Katherine Tech Organizer Roll $35
For the fourth product there were three possibilities: the Tech Organizer Roll, the Stojo Collapsible 16 oz cup, or Maji Sports Stretch & Exercise Bands. I received the Tech Organizer which I will definitely use, because I hate having all my chargers get tangled up, or misplaced.
I also would have liked to get either the travel cup or exercise bands, and would have used both.
Product 5 – Three Ships Lip Treatment Kit $30 USD
For the fifth product there there three possibilities: the Lip Kit, a PUR Lit Mist Illuminating Setting Spray, or a Province Apothecary Regenerating Exfoliator + Resurfacing Mask. I received the Lip Kit and as a lip balm addict, I couldn’t be more thrilled. It contains a lip scrub and a lip mask.
I also would not have minded getting either of the two alternates, but the Lip Kit was made for me!
Product 6 – Adesse New York Power Couple Nail Care Duo $36 USD
All subscribers received the nail care duo. It contains a Nail Growth Optimizer and a Cuticle Oil. Because of the past year of constant hand washing and hand sanitizer use, my nails need strengthening and hydration, so this is perfect for me.
The Spring 2021 box cost me $62.90 USD ($54.95 + shipping to Canada) which works out to $81.89 CAD based on the exchange rate that I paid ($1.3019), so the value of this box is $272 USD which works out to $354.12 CAD! The yearly subscription which you pay in full works out to be cheaper per box and you get customization choices, but I’m liking the element of surprise so far!
I’m super happy with everything that I received! All are things that I will use. My only complaint is that it takes forever for the boxes to ship out!
Reviews to follow for the Sleep Spray, Lip Kit and Nail Care Duo once I’ve had a chance to try them out!
