Hey everyone! Today’s Mommy Minute is going to be a review of the Spring 2018 Causebox! Causebox is a great subscription box that helps out worthy causes, but I have decided to end my relationship with them – find out why in the Final Thoughts section below!

Causebox is a quarterly subscription box that delivers beautiful products that give back. Each quarter you’ll receive $150+ worth of lifestyle products that are exclusive & ethically made for $49.95!
Causebox always has a beautifully designed outer box, and a mini magazine that talks about each product and has interviews with the creators of the products.
I’m a sucker for Spring.
I just love the colorful, flourishing flowers and the warmth of the sun on my bare skin after months of artificial heat. The season invigorates me – it feels so natural and rejuvenating to shed the heavy layers of winter and step out onto fresh green grass and admire nature’s new bloom. Out with the old and in with the new. And with the new comes a fresh perspective, exciting new opportunities, and a fresh foot forward.
We put our bodies, minds, and souls through so much every day, which is why it is crucial to treat ourselves whenever we get the chance. Taking the time to check in with ourselves and improve how we feel improves the way we’re able to face the world – with kindness, positivity, and mindfulness. That’s why this season’s Causebox is infused with so much self-love and care. An all-natural rosehip oil to rejuvenate your skin after a long day, a clean mascara to give you that confidence boost on your way out the door, a beautifully blush, artisan-made kimono to dress up your Spring wardrobe and make you look and feel fresh. This and more – because the better you feel, the better you can make others feel.
Everything in this box is meant to make you feel loved and beautiful – and everything in this box is made to support and create a better, fairer, and more equitable world. Look good, feel good, do good, give good.

They always have a beautiful flat-lay of the products included in each box. . .
and each box is always packaged so beautifully!
+ Symbology Exclusive Kimono, $105.00.
An exclusive, custom kimono handmade and printed for CAUSEBOX in Jaipur, India. Soft and subtle, it can be dressed up or down all season long.
This is a really gorgeous kimono. The fabric is lightweight and the print is gorgeous. It’s very comfortable on and it’s casual enough to be used in a variety of settings with several different looks. I love the color of it, it’s a beautiful blush pink. I’ve acquired several kimonos through subscription boxes and I think this is one of my favorites!
+ Bloom & Give Tea Towels, $24.00.
Two tea towels made in Kerala, India, which demonstrate hundreds of years of fabric expertise in every stitch.
Since I’ve started redecorating my house, I’ve fallen in love with tea towels so I was really excited to see these in this box. They are very simplistic, but beautiful. Luckily, these will match my kitchen perfectly since we use a lot of black and white coloring in our kitchen. Plus, Bloom & Give donates 10% of their sales to girls’ education programs.
+ PF Candle Co Cedar and Moss Reed Diffuser, $22.00.
Cedar and Moss Reed Diffuser from the iconic candlemaker – a flame-free, long lasting scent that transforms any room.
I love reed diffusers, especially with my kids. Flame free is always the safest! Plus, I always thought they were very classy looking. This has a really nice scent – it’s kind of a masculine scent, but in a nice, light way. There are notes of moss, lavender, sage, lavandin, orange, amber and musk.
+ Soko Petite Bow Earrings, $42.00.
Dynamic and delicate silver bow earrings – a graceful melding of impact and style.
Soko is an ethical fashion brand. I checked out their website and they have the cutest stuff! These earrings are one of my favorites that they offer – and fairly priced, too. These are very simple bow earrings in Silver. I have to be careful when wearing earrings like this due to little hands that like to yank on them, so these will be reserved for special occasions, but I love having this option in my jewelry box!
Phyto-Pigments Ultra-Natural Mascara – this clean beauty staple derives its rich black color from purple carrots.
I’ve never heard of a mascara that is made from purple carrots and I feel like that’s a fun fact that more people need to know about. This is a really nice mascara that doesn’t leave me with any clumping issues. The color is a nice, opaque black and it lasts all day without flaking. I can’t really complain about that!
+ Scentuals Rosehip Beauty Oil, $22.90.
An all-natural rosehip beauty oil that provides a range of benefits: from skin and hair moisturizing to burn and scar healing.
This is really nice oil. I’ve never used rosehip oil before, but I was surprised that it didn’t have much a rose scent to it. Either way, this is a very thick oil that soaks into skin nicely. It makes my skin feel super hydrated without feeling greasy (which is the issue I have with most oil-based products). I’ve really enjoyed this so far, and I can’t wait to keep using it.
+ Marylou Faure 5″ x 7″ Art Print, $10.00.
5″ x 7″ art print that celebrates the female form. Designed by celebrated London-based artist Marylou Faure – the print doubles as a postcard!
This is really cute postcard! I don’t typically send postcards, but these are always nice to frame or use in other crafty ways. This is a beautiful piece by Marylou Faure, who’s cause is equal rights. She likes to try to fight against body shaming and likes to represent characters that are curvy and confident!
I really love CAUSEBOX and what they do for charities. I think it’s a great box that sends a great message and works with some great causes. However, I feel that most of the items are easily repeated and typically very similar to each other. I’m not using as many of the products from each box as I would hope, so for now I’m cancelling my subscription to CAUSEBOX. I would recommend this to anyone that enjoys quality products that support wonderful causes.
I paid $49.95 for $249.90 worth of products!
