Spring 2019 CAUSEBOX Review and Spoilers
1. Cosmedix Bamboo Brightening Mask
Cosmedix was founded by an aesthetician and a nurse who were looking for “effective skincare products that didn’t contain harsh chemicals.” Because they couldn’t find that in the beauty industry, they set out to make their own products and set the bar higher for “clean beauty.” They view skincare as a ritual rather than a regimen, meaning it should also support your emotional health.
Review: TBD! I’m testing it and it’s coming soon.
2. Marina de Buchi Bracelet (Choice Item)
These bracelets are not only a reminder of something powerful for the wearing, but symbolize work for a larger cause. Proceeds from these bracelets go to a nonprofit organization called A21 — which stands for abolishing slavery in the 21st century.
Review: This bracelet is simple and gorgeous. It’s easy to wear and serves as a powerful reminder.
This item is a choice item and comes in two variations:
3. Cleobella Scarf (Choice Item)
These vegan silk scarfs (they’re made of polyester instead of using silkworms) feature hand drawn designs.
Review: This scarf is soft and gorgeous! I like wearing it as a hair scarf and tied as an accessory on a bag. I went for the marigold print — I’m really feeling yellow this season!
4. Kalos Rose Water Hydra-Mist
The idea for this mist comes from founder Nadia Babar’s family. The use of rose water had been passed down from generation to generation inspiring her to share this with others. A portion of the proceeds goes to supporting girls’ education projects around the world.
Review: This spray is refreshing to reach for throughout the day. I love that it has good for your skin ingredients and smells nice too!
5. Ettitude Bamboo Lyocell Sleep Mask
Bamboo lyocell is said to help protect your skin from unwanted creases and your hair from friction. It’s also less absorbant than cotton so it won’t soak up your nighttime skin care products while you sleep.
Review: I actually own pillowcases from this brand that I purchased as a FabFitFun Add-on. I can’t speak to the claims, but they’re very soft, just like the eye mask! I don’t have a major use for an eye mask in my every day life, however, I do like to keep one on hand for nights I can’t sleep and as an option for guests.
6. WYLD French Pink Clay Konjac Sponge
Born from founder Joy Yap’s skin condition, this konjac sponge is a plant-based solution to gentle demabrasion. Konjac actually comes from a plant in southeast Asia. WYLD then mixes the konjac with French pink clay and bakes it — like a cookie — to create the sponge that comes in the box. How neat!
Review: I’ve long been a fan of using konjac sponges with a gentle cleanser for a physical exfoliator. In the past, I’ve used charcoal sponges and this was my first time using one with pink clay. It left my skin so smooth and I look forward to continue to test it further!
7. Altru Macrame Plant Hanger
From Causebox’s in-house brand, this macrame plant hanger is both on trend and socially conscious! Proceeds from the purchase go to replanting trees burned in California wildfires.
Review: I haven’t gotten to hang this yet but the quality is absolutely gorgeous! It lends itself to an earthy, relaxed style. If you aren’t a plant person, the Causebox team suggests using it to hang a fruit bowl!
8. Glass Ladder & Co Portfolio (Choice Item)
This vegan leather portfolio is a chic and sustainable way to keep yourself organized at work. Founder Megan Larsen wants to encourage women to break the glass ceiling without sacrificing their personal style along the way.
Review: I love that this has room for my laptop! It’s easy to fit everything I need for what I’m currently working on. I love that it looks like a clutch but is all business on the inside. The material feels nice too and is easy to clean!
This is a choice item and there are three colors to choose from — cloud gray, classic black, and blush pink:
9. Alja Horvat Print
Every season Causebox teams up with an artist for the box artwork. This season, Alja Horvat from Slovenia created the design. In each box is an exclusive print that doubles as a postcard.
Each box also comes with a booklet that provides interviews, information, and exclusive discount codes for the brands and items inside the box. You can see how your purchase makes a difference in our world and raises awareness for these powerful causes.
