Can I skip? Yes!
The box shipped in a plain Priority Shipping Box. I was impressed with the $15.00 cost, as shipping priority is expensive!
First Look: There was informational papers on top, along with an box content sheet.
There were a few sheets, letting me know all about how their subscription works.
There was also a nice information guide with detailed information on how to use each product.
Second Look: There was a pretty pink box inside!! What a surprise!
Vanilla Lip Sugar Scrub (2 oz) $2.50: This is a lip scrub to leave your lips soft. Use a baby toothbrush to apply to your lips, then rince. This is a great product, unfortunately, it leaked over the box. I spoke with the owner, who was super sweet and it making modifications to boxes, so this won't occur.
Sweet Pea Sugar Cubes (6 oz): $14.50: These are little cubes you can use all over your body, just like soap. The sweet pea smell is light, but smells really good. I also love the cute little jar.
Buttercream Cupcake Body Butter (2 oz) $4.50 This is a body butter that smells like cake! You only need a little bit and it smells great. My husband noticed and said “You smell like cake!”, He loves it (on me of course).
Tinkerbell Wax Melt (1oz) $1.50: As a Disney addict, seeing the name Tinkerbell, made me smile. These wax melts are made with chamomile flowers with hints of green herbs with freshly brewed ice tea. The melts just have a floral scent to me, that smells AMAZING. This is my favorite product and I want more!
Stress Reliever Soap Bar (6 0z) $8.00: This is a pretty bar of soap that contains Eucalyptus Mint fragrance. I know eucalyptus to have a strong smell, but this is a very mild smelling soap. My husband took this for himself and loves it!
Final Thought: This box had a total value of $31.00. Since these items are homemade, I couldn't “google” prices, but I firmly believe this box is worth the $15.00 month cost, easily! My husband and I loved all the products in the box. Each item was well made and had a nice scent. I also liked the scents were not strong and over powering. The only negative, was the lip scrub leaked out. I talked with the company about the issue and they are making arrangements to prevent it from happening again.

Alex was friend's with the subscription box's owner, and was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident.
