I'm a little surprised to see this box rated so high and unfortunately I feel I was mislead by these high ratings. I recently received the Flourish box and can tell you I was rather disappointed. For a "self-care" box designed to reduce stress and bring comfort, that wasn't exactly my experience. I'd hate to see other subscribers expect more only to be let down. The box includes environmentally conscious detergent sheets, reusable "paper towels" (made from upcycled cotton) and a foaming cleanser to be applied to toilet paper before using. For starters - neither the foaming cleanser or detergent worked as expected, and although I absolutely agree that environmentally conscious products are essential, this box is about self-care, no? not exactly household cleaning product- care. I was a little confused.
There was an avocado-algae facemask, and boy this thing smelt terrible and made a huge green mess! It was so unpleasant I had to wash it off immediately. Again - not feeling the love. Not to mention a nail polish (usually a welcomed product in my house) however after painting my nails, I was really put off by the colour. It sadly reminded me of a body at the morgue with a toe-tag - that's how my feet looked - dead! I just can't see this colour being flattering on too many skin tones. The bath salts were nice and I do look forward to completing the therapeutic happiness booster activity.
I want to love this box because...
I couldn't help but smile as I unwrapped each item from the Fall 2020 box. Adorable, high quality, thoughtfully curated and useful products!! Love the lama theme, and especially loved seeing how many of the products were made in Canada. Thanks for the goodies :)
