Sadly, this box was not for me. Although cute, I felt it was geared toward younger girls and not for anyone over 35. I did like the towel and could certainly toss it into a tote for a day at the beach, pool, or a picnic in the park. Everything else I gave to my teenage nieces who liked the items very much.
Just received my 1st Life's a Wave box and I am impressed with the contents. This company harvests the serenity of the ocean and invokes the recipient's mind of every blissful experience of the beach. Inside the beautifully wrapped box was a lovely, handwritten note welcoming me to the mermaid sisterhood. Beyond that was a pretty Himalayan salt lamp, a super cute lava stone bracelet with lime essential oil to add creating the essence of sipping margaritas in the sand. Additionally, there was a wet bikini bag, lip balm, gourmet chocolates (that I initially thought were painted rocks--clever), saltwater taffy, and much more.
One thing that I love...this company donates a portion of its proceeds to a nonprofit organization and each month they feature an organization to raise awareness.
Overall, this box exceeded my expectations with quality items that are functional and practical for the mermaid in you or in your life.
This is absolutely, by far, the best subscription for anyone who loves the beach. The items are extraordinary quality and very practical. The belly basket has taken up a lovely place in our guest bath with matching linens. The candle smells amazing, and the pretty bottle of matches is too adorable for words. It is beautifully curated and I am already having excitement for the next shipment.
Received the Winter 2019 edition and was quite impressed with the quality and love put into the curation. The capiz shell ornament is beautiful and perfectly matches the color of a capiz shell windchime I have. There was a lovely pair of sea glass stud earrings, a divine scented coconut milk candle and body lotion duo, a delicate plumeria flower hair clip, creamy Hawaiian face serum (unlike the usual oil serums out there), an absolutely cute throw pillow, and my favorite item...a gorgeous poncho.
Everything that came in this box is highly functional and practical for use. There isn't one thing that I won't use. Thanks Oceanista for the great experience! 🐚🏝🥰
I ordered the 4 dozen box and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the ingredients. Everything was vacuum sealed individually to ensure freshness. The candle smells incredible and the other little surprises were very nice. I baked up one batch to test and glad I did. The cookies, although yummy, were completely flat and thin. Since we live in a high altitude area, I will need to make some adjustments to the recipe besides lowering the temperature to 325°. For the next 2 dozen, I plan on adding a bit more flour and some baking powder. Also, the marshmallows stuck to the sheet making them near impossible to remove. I will correct this by adding them to last minute of baking time. Otherwise, they are tasty and super easy to make.
