Oceanista is $79.99 a season, BUT if you use my code “Courtagonist” you’ll get 10% off your first box! How awesome is that?!?! Plus, the value of the box is always worth $150 or more! The summer box had a retail value of over $200 dollars! Now, let’s get into the goodies, shall we?
This month’s theme was “Fall For Flamingos”! How flipping cute is that?!?! I even love the gorgeous little flamingo paper clip at the top. Also, sidenote, this box smelled INCREDIBLE when I opened it. The Fall Oceanista box had a retail value of $209.18. Not bad considering the box costs $79 a season. We received 8 top of the line items. So, without further ado, let’s get into this box!
Doucce Freematic EyeShadow Quad ($35) & Crown 3-Piece Pro Brush Trio ($29.95)
This was my most favorite product in the box. I love the fact that they sent a quad of eyeshadows! Two matte. Two shimmery. They are also very fall colors which made me really squeal in delight. The brushes are extremely soft and have indentions where you can place your fingers comfortably. I love that they sent a three piece so that you can really try out all of their brushes on every part of your face.
Genuine Feather Crescent Necklace by Oceanista ($29.95)
This is a stunning statement necklace. I love the pop of color in the feathers and the nod to the moon which is getting it’s time to shine during the Autumn and Winter months. This is a perfect necklace to go with a sassy dress for going out or for a comfy long sleeve high neckline dress. Either way you will be having people compliment and ask where you got such a stunning piece of jewelry!
Melissa Harmonic Bow III Flip Flop ($55)
These are stunning and chicly made flip flops by Melissa. They have a statement bow that will polish any look. Wear these as the hot days become cooler nights with a gauzy shirt and flowy pants or with a flowy top and some boy friend jeans. These are what made the box smell so AMAZING. They were molded from a fruit-scented PVC. How awesome is that?!?!
Flamingo Wet Bikini Bag with Hemp Rose Handle ($15.95)
Not going to lie, the temperature has dropped quite a few degrees here in Oklahoma. I don’t see myself swimming anytime soon. But that doesn’t mean I am not going to be able to use this totes adorbs bag! It is perfect for an over night bag in my suitcase. It would fit all of my travel shampoo, conditioner, and my moisturizer perfectly! Since it is supposed to be used for a wet bikini I don’t have to worry about putting my wet bottle into it! It is multipurpose!
Fall 2018 Featured Artisan – Simon Andrew ($13.83)
I love how simple these drawings are by Simon Andrew. They are somewhat childlike but also have enough detail to make me want to frame them in my entry way. I love the bright colors and the simplicity of the artwork. These are beautifully made and put on Fedrigoni Acroprint 300gsm premium paper. I can’t wait to mail these to friend and family! They are stunning.
I love how much detail Oceanista puts into the packaging inside their boxes. If feels like presents inside of presents. Look how beautifully they wrapped this one with the ribbon, the tissue paper, and the artwork piece!
2-in-1 Flamingo Sarong/Scarf ($17)
This is one of the softest materials I have ever had the pleasure of feeling. I love that along with sending the sarong they also showed you MANY different ways to wear it. This is something that I struggle with when a box sends me something but I am not quite sure how to style it. It takes the pressure off of trying to figure it out on your own. I know that I will be wearing this as a scarf during the Fall and Winter. Just to have that little reminder of Spring and Summer.
Evian Facial Mist ($12.50)
During the Fall/Winter months my face becomes extremely dry in some areas. I go from having oily skin in the summer to the Sahara Desert on my face. I love that Oceanista thought of this and supplied the Evian facial spray! This is something that you can throw in your purse, overnight bag, or just keep on your counter. You can use it before you put on make up or throughout the day. Either way this is like having a spa in your arsenal against dry skin.
Oceanista Review Fall 2018 – Final Thoughts
This is one of my absolute favorite seasonal boxes. I love how much detail, care, and love goes into curating every inch of the box. I love that they stick to the theme and keep striving for better and more luxurious products. $79 is an amazing price for everything that you receive every season. It is like a small gift to yourself or someone you love. I can’t wait to see what Winter 2018 holds for us.
Until next time.
