White Willow Box Review April 2016
White Willow Box is one of the best Canadian subscription boxes to come on the market this year. For all of my Canadian readers who have been waiting for POPSUGAR to start shipping here, this would be the Canadian equivalent. Now that this box is available to us, I don’t mind that I can’t get POPSUGAR…..White Willow Box is just as good, if not better.

White Willow Box sends the perfect mixture of items. We usually receive some sort of home decor item, a beauty item, a food item, and sometimes a jewelry item and/or fashion accessory. My favourite boxes from White Willow are always the ones that contain jewelry.
Classic Double Pearl Earrings by CherryPick ($25) – These gorgeous little earrings were the spoiler for the April box, so I already knew we were receiving them. I happen to love double pearl earrings, they will easily go with any outfit.
White Soleil Candle by D.L. & Co. ($24) – This little candle holder is absolutely beautiful. It fits my style/decor preferences perfectly, and it has a pretty floral scent. Subscribers received one of two different scents.
Natural Foaming Face Wash by Consonant Skincare ($22) – I’ve been brave lately and have actually been testing out some of my subscription box facial products, so I am looking forward to trying this one out. It was the winner of the Best Cleanser in Globe & Mail, and it contains two of my favourite ingredients – tea tree oil and grape seed oil.
Gluten Free Artisan Vanilla Bean Cake Mix by NextJen ($8) – How fun is this! I absolutely love receiving items like this in my subscription boxes because it gives me an excuse to bake. And I’m pretty excited about the fact that it is dairy-free and gluten-free. I will have to come up with some sort of fun recipe to use this with.
Earl Grey Imperial Tea Sachets by Harney & Sons Master Tea Blenders ($6) – I was happy to see this in the box, I am always happy to receive tea, but I was even more excited to see that they included a recipe which incorporates this and the cake mix…..love it.
Thoughts: White Willow Box is one of the subscription boxes I look forward to the most. I always love the items we receive, and always end up discovering great new brands. This month my favourite item is the earrings, I’ve already spent some time on the Cherrypick website. I have to give White Willow Box credit, they have created a pretty amazing subscription box at a time when I was starting to lose faith in Canadian based boxes. They set a good example of what a lifestyle box should look like. I hope to see more jewelry in future boxes, and would also LOVE to see a book……then my life would be complete.
