SUMMER OF LOVE | SUMMER 2018 MARGOT ELENA SEASONAL DISCOVERY BOX REVIEW

I have been a longtime fan of Margot Elena. I’ve also been a longtime fan of several of her brands, even before I knew the same company was behind all of them. That’s commitment, my friend. The Cottage Greenhouse? Tokyo Milk? Lollia? All Margot Elena. I’ve been subscribed to this seasonal subscription since the first box (this is the third box), and I decided it’s finally time to review it here! I’ve been able to form some opinions on it, and I can’t wait to see what we got for the summertime!

Links may be affiliate or referral links. All items purchased by me unless otherwise mentioned. All opinions are my own. Read full disclosure here.

The Margot Elena Seasonal Discovery box is a quarterly subscription box. The cost is $49.99 a season, with a $20 discount if you purchase an annual subscription.

From their website:

Discover the world of All Things Beautiful with the Margot Elena Discovery Box filled with over $200 worth of full-sized* products curated by our team. With your purchase you’ll be enrolled in our seasonal membership and receive a box of beauty every 3 months delivered to your doorstep as long as you remain a member.

EEEEEEEEEK.

These boxes are a decent size, and they’re always jam packed. This is one subscription that consistently surprises me with how many items they’ve included.

They always include an information card, and this season they also included a letter from Margot Elena that discusses some of the products in the box and the launch of their Infinite Beauty line! It’s going to be available on the Margot Elena site late this summer, and subscribers to this box get a special pre-launch product!

Margot Elena Honeycomb Striped Turkish Towel ($44.00)

This is not available for purchase on the Margot Elena website, so I’m guessing it might be an exclusive item for subscribers? Either way, I’m pleased with it. I’m a huge fan of Turkish towels – they’re so much thicker and more luxe than traditional beach towels. This one is really thick and feels very high quality. I can’t wait to get some use out of this this summer!

The Cottage Greenhouse Rosemary Mint Rescue Foot Cream ($28.00)

This cream has a really nice scent to it, very refreshing. This is very thick, but it soaks into skin almost instantly and seriously helps sooo much in making my feet softer and more hydrated. This works perfectly for lathering up your feet and then putting on a pair of socks to wear overnight. It’s like magic in the morning.

The Cottage Greenhouse Rosemary Mint Foot Scrub ($26.00)

This smells just like the foot cream! It’s recommend that you use this before applying the foot cream. This is decently gritty, and it definitely provides a good base to use the cream on (based on first usage). The star of this though is that they both smell the same, so it’s complimentary instead of two scents competing with each other. A+, Margot!

Margot Elena Infinite Beauty Nail Color in Cloud Nine ($15.00)

This is the pre-launch of the new line that was sent to subscribers! This went out in four different shades, and I got Cloud Nine – a beautiful blue. These polishes are 7 free, and the packaging is the cutest! It makes me so happy just looking at it. I haven’t had a chance to try because I just got my nail done, but I’ll probably post about it in my Instagram stories when I do!

Neptune & The Mermaid Gold Foil Print Postcard Set ($8.00)

I can’t find these online either, but holy hell – they’re beautiful! I seriously am considering framing these. Especially the octopus one. These are works of art. So damn gorgeous.

Tokyo Milk Dead Sexy Bon Bon Shea Butter Lotion ($20.00)

I seriously die over this packaging. All of these lines have some of the most beautiful, intricate packaging I’ve ever seen. And I really like this lotion. It’s incredibly moisturizing without being greasy and the scent is heavenly! It has notes of deep vanilla, exotic wood, white orchid and ebony.

The Cottage Greenhouse Wild Ginger & Agave Dry Body Oil ($24.00)

DO YOU SEE THIS PACKAGING. I’m not a huge fan of ginger, but this has a nice, subtle scent to it that doesn’t bother me. It doesn’t feel greasy at all, but does provide moisture in the form of an oil. I don’t tend to love body oils, but this one is actually working for me so far.

Margot Elena Rhassoul Clay Face Masque ($12.00)

This is another pre-launch from the Infinite Beauty line, so it’s not currently available for purchase. I haven’t tried this yet, but I can’t wait too. I’ll definitely be doing an Instagram story about this (I normally do for most masks I use), and this just looks so intriguing! Once again, beautiful packaging and several claims that I can’t imagine this wouldn’t live up to!

Lollia Poetic License Fine Perfumed Soap Trio ($24.00)

I can’t find these particular soaps on the website either :/. I’m not normally a fan of bar soap in any form, but the soaps that I have received in these boxes are on the higher-end of bar soap, so they are perfect for my guest bathroom. The scents that came in this trio are: Velvet As Night, Sleeping Under The Stars, and Score from The End Credits – so cute.

Tokyo Milk Pretty Rotten Lip Elixir ($7.00)

This product was actually the first thing I ever bought from a Margot Elena brand – just a different scent, of course. This lip elixir is in the scent “pretty rotten”, which is Green Tea & Jasmine. Now, as well all know, I’m not a fan of tea scented items, but this lip balm has a nice mix of the two scents, so it isn’t overbearing one way or the other.

The Cottage Greenhouse Cucumber & Honey Relaxing Bath Soak ($12.00)

Hmmm, this is another product that I can’t locate online. Either way, it’s cute. I don’t take a ton of baths, but this is nice to have on hand when I decide to. I love that it comes with it’s own little scoop, and of course it smells fantastic.

FINAL THOUGHTS:

I paid $49.99 for $220.00 worth of products, which I’m totally happy with. I know it totally sounds like I’m gushing over this box throughout this whole review, but seriously guys. If you like these brands or these types of items, this box is soooo worth it! It’s beginning to be one of my favorites, which is crazy considering how many boxes I subscribe to. All of these items are so luxurious and this is such a nice seasonal treat to get. I highly recommend this box!

What do you think of this box? What’s your favorite Margot Elena product?
