Here’s a closer look at the items we received in the August box…..
Classic Stoneware Planter ($15 CAD)
This contemporary and modern planter exemplifies minimalist design. Suitable for all decors in an off-white and neutral shade. This waterproof planter is fitted with foam feet to protect surfaces. Hand wash with soap and water.
First up we have our home decor item. We usually always receive some sort of accessory perfect for decorating. This planter is simple, neutral and functional. I love that it is white as it will complement almost any decor color scheme. I might use it as a planter and fill it with succulents, or I might use it as a desk accessory……I’m undecided.
Tropical Vibe Tumbler – Avenue 9 ($26 CAD)
This 16 ounce/500ml pineapple design tumbler with silver and gold pattern, gold lid and matching color straw is your perfect summer companion. Stay hydrate in style. Hand wash only.
What summer box would be complete without a pineapple tumbler! Really……this is so stinkin’ cute and so perfect for summer. I always have water with me, whether it’s beside me on my desk or in the car. This is a super cute way to stay hydrated during the hot summer months.
Rose Clay Mask – All Heart Cosmetics ($30.50 CAD)
It’s about time you treat yourself with this rich clay formula. Each package makes about 10-12 masks! The rose clay mask works in reducing unwanted oils, helps remove impurities, and is packed with vitamins and minerals with natural antioxidants and hydrating properties that leaves you with an overall soft, glowing complexion.
You all know I am a sucker for cute packaging, and this is cute packaging! I did a little research and found out that Pastel Pink Clay is perfect for balancing the most stressed and sensitive of skins, it’s hydrating properties help to refine delicate lines, moisturize, and improves the overall texture of the skin. I also discovered that this Rose Clay Mask includes beetroot which gives your skin a glowing complexion. The perfect way to pamper your skin after exposing it to the hot sun and dry weather.
Walnut Pesto Oil – La Tourangelle Artisan Oils ($10 CAD)
La Tourangelle has created an elegantly delicious cooking oil in its Walnut Pesto Oil. The flavor of Roasted Walnut Oil harmonizes the natural basil and garlic infusions into an oil with true and tasty Pesto notes. Drizzle onto pasta and salads, or just add salt for an easy dipping sauce!
Simply use it as a dipping oil or drizzle onto your pasta, tomato salad, spinach or chicken; its ease of use will bring a fresh pesto flavor to any dish. Here are a few ways you can incorporate our artisan pesto oil into your meals:
- Drizzle: When you have prepared a delicious, Italian- or Mediterranean-style pasta dish, our organic pesto oil makes the perfect finishing touch. Drizzle it on top for a bold dose of fresh flavor and smooth texture in every bite. It also makes a tempting addition to cooked vegetable dishes.
- Dip: Our walnut pesto oil is so full of flavor that it stands all on its own. Enjoy it raw and fresh as a dipping sauce for your breadsticks or garlic bread, or pair it with cheese and crackers for an authentically tasty snack.
- Whisk: Incorporate our artisan pesto oil into your homemade sauces, condiments, vinaigrettes and marinades for a unique addition of flavor and texture to any salad, meat or mixture.
Yes, yes, yes!!! I love this oil!! If I could have an unlimited supply of all the different flavours I would be a happy girl. We have received this brand before and I was beyond happy with it. I can’t remember which flavour we received but I do remember that it didn’t last long. I used it for everything.
Cacao Mint Lip Scrub – SkinSmart Organics ($10 CAD)
Say goodbye to chapped lips with this delicious Cacao-Mint Lip scrub! This scrub will gently buff your lips removing dry flaky skin. Improves lip texture and promotes cell turn over. You’ll have a hard time not licking this off your lips, we don’t recommend eating it but if you do its 100% pure! No chemicals, all natural.
Directions: Apply to clean, damp lips and massage in a circular motion to exfoliate. Use a wet cotton pad or face clothe to gently wipe away scrub. Follow with our peppermint lip balm for best results.
Key Ingredients: organic raw sugar, jojoba oil, vitamin e, peppermint essential oil, cacao powder
I ended up gifting the last lip scrub I received and immediately regretted it. I will definitely be keeping this one for myself. Lip scrubs are a great way to keep your lips soft.
White Willow Box Review August 2018 – Final Thoughts
The August White Willow Box is absolutely lovely. Not only is the box itself gorgeous, perfect for gifting, but it also includes a wonderful selection of products. I love that we receive a little bit of everything – skincare, food item, home decor, accessory. We received the perfect mixture of items and the perfect number of items. Any more than this might be a little overwhelming and any less would be a little underwhelming. Basically what I am trying to say is White Willow Box is perfect just the way it is…..I wouldn’t change a thing.
