There are so many beauty boxes out on the market right now - most of them monthly subscriptions. I've fallen victim to this 'trend' and I've been reviewing the Cohorted boxes throughout summer, making me become a bit of an addict to receiving a surprise box filled with with goodies I will discover. It's a little like celebrating Christmas every 30 days.
Now I am not one to follow horoscopes and look at the stars and planets but I will admit that when I saw this box my reaction was "oh wow this is cool!" as The Owl & The Apothecary created the Elemental Box. Each is made to celebrate those born under a specific auspices - I am a libra so mine is Air.
The box comes beautifully packaged and you can tell straight away that it's higher-end. Inside, each products is wrapped individually and comes with its own card with a little message in it, either telling you how to use it or just giving you some good quote. I don't know why but I found this to be a very nice touch, as it's all in the detail. You can tell it was made with care.
Some of the things that I found in my box are an amazing candle that smells incredible and burns beautifully, spreading the scent everywhere in the room, and also a night time oil. With levander, rosehip, avocado oils and sea buckthorn, this has to be one of the best additions to my skin care routine. It got rid of my dry patches, I noticed a dramatic improvement in my texture and I actually have less pimples and less visible acne scaring. it also smells good and it's not heavy on the skin so you can feel it getting absorbed quickly.
Of course I don't want to spoil everything you find in there, but I think that if you're more into the whole trend of collecting rocks/minerals you will love this. I have found a clear quartz with instructions on how to use it to my benefit and to improve my moods. Again, it may not be that interesting to some people, but honestly I found it fun and different. I would have loved this as a present!
I like the box and I think that if you want to really treat yourself or give an amazing present to someone (it's a one off, not a subscription), this should definitely be something you consider. It's quite different, quirky and interesting. I am really enjoying mine and despite featuring only two beauty products, because they're luxurious and unique, they do make an amazing present in addition to other things you'll find inside.
