In case you haven't heard about the changes White Willow has made, here is what you need to know. They have switched over to a bi-monthly subscription starting last month. If you ordered before July 24th you will get August's box. Orders placed after July 26th will get the October box. They've also increased the pricing, but shipping prices will remain the same. They'll also be introducing more Special Edition boxes.
White Willow Box is a Canadian lifestyle subscription box. You will receive a lovely box delivered straight to your door with four to five samples and full-sized products ranging from: beauty and personal care products, fashion accessories, home decor accents, culinary delights, technology gadgets, and other lifestyle surprises.
Cost: $45.95 (CAD)/bi-monthly or $94.90 (CAD) -Receive 1 box every other month for the duration of 4 months (2 boxes total)
Shipping: $8.50 (CAD) & $19.50 (US)
They have some of my favourite packaging. The white box is shipped with an outer box over it, so boxes arrive clean and undamaged.
Ceramic Berry Basket
This is a really cute dish to serve berries in! It's perfect for summer! Subscribers received 1 of 2 colours: yellow or blue. I wish I had received the blue, I don't like this shade of yellow at all. I'll probably end up gifting this.
MUDLARK Julep Glass Dish
This dish is much more my style and can be used many ways. As a vanity tray, candle plate, and soap dish. You could even use it as an appetizer or mini dessert serving plate. I love the design and colour.
La Tourangelle Artisan Oils Herbs de Provence Oil
We got this same brand of oil but in a different flavour in March's box. This one is infused with fresh rosemary and thyme. I do like this product and will use it, but I'm not thrilled about getting a repeat item. I wonder what the reason is behind that decision.
Sephora Collection Sleeping Mask
These masks came in 1 of 5 variations. I got the Lotus Mask which locks in water and reduces the signs of fatigue for the appearance of plumper, more rested skin. I also received this sheet mask in the January box.
Skin & Co. Roma Citrus Amaro Shower Gel
This shower gel has a light scent and contains organic ingredients. The rich, sulfate-free lather, simulates and moisturizes your skin. I wish it had more of a citrus scent, but I love shower gels so I'm good with this one.
Skin & Co. Roma Citrus Amaro Hand Cream
This bonus item is from the same brand as the shower gel. The Shea Butter and Sweet Almond Oil in this cream will protect and renew your skin while leaving lingering notes of lavender and orange. It's a good hand cream and is the perfect size for your purse.
I think this is a great box and have been happy with almost all the boxes I've received since they started, but this box had two repeat items. I know that they're not exactly the same as what I received before, but they're just too similar and it doesn't sit well with me. I don't think it's coincidental, so I'm wondering why that did that. For any a new subscriber though, I'm sure they would love this box. October's box will be the first bi-monthly box and I'm very curious to see if the boxes will be any different from what they've doing in the past.
