Everything was shipped in a white box with the Mommy mailbox logo on top.
A peek inside!
December’s box was curated by Casi Densmore-Koon and the theme was “Glow”.
An info card listed all of the items in the box, along with brief descriptions for each one.
GLOW for a Cause Facial Nourishing Cream ($38) – A super nourishing facial cream that prevents skin from over-drying and helps soothe already dry/damaged skin. It’s enriched with organic calendula and is lightly scented with 100% pure essential oils of lemon, bergamot and tangerine. My face tends to break out if I switch up my regimen, so I may try using this on my hands instead.
Olive + Piper Classic Crystal Bangle ($28) – I’m slooowly warming up to the look of rose gold and was kind of excited when I saw this cuff bangle in the box. I do wish the fit was a little snugger on my wrist (though I guess it wouldn’t be a bangle if it did) — I sorta feel like a little kid wearing her mom’s jewelry. Fit aside, it’s definitely a pretty bracelet for the holidays.
Manna Kadar Beauty Blush ($19) – According to the info card, Mommy Mailbox subscribers are some of the first to try this new blush from Manna Kadar. The custom formulation offers a special light texture which glides on smoothly and evenly to provide the perfect amount of color for a healthy glow.
Sweep Beauty Oval Face Brush ($15) – The oval head on this brush makes it ideal for gently dusting on highlight and easily applying bronzer or blush around your cheekbones. It can also be used for for buffing liquid foundation into the skin.
Jo’s Candies Peppermint Bark (~$1?) – This award-winning peppermint bark is handcrafted and features layers of dark chocolate and dreamy white bark topped with crushed candy cane. The perfect holiday treat!
Another nice collection of “treat yoself” items from Mommy Mailbox box. The total retail value of everything in the December box was just over $100! — Remember, you can save $5 on your first box with coupon code “ROSE5“!
