White Willow Box is a Canadian lifestyle subscription box, based in North Vancouver, BC. White Willow Box combines beauty, style, fashion, culinary and home decor. Every other month you will receive 4-5 full or sample size products such as beauty and personal care products, fashion accessories, home decor accents, culinary delights, kitchen gadgets, and other lifestyle surprises. Each box will have a minimum $70 value! Gift subscriptions are also available. We last reviewed White Willow Box in December 2015, and since then they changed from a monthly to a bimonthly subscription.
 
The box and packaging is very classy. Every time I receive this box it feels like I’m opening up a beautifully wrapped Christmas gift!

This month I received their regular box, but on occasion White Willow will release limited edition boxes for special occasions such as Mother’s Day, Christmas, etc. Usually we receive a spoiler alert email, but we didn’t this month. I love how quickly I receive this subscription, they have their shipping process down perfectly!

Product Card

Fragrance Medallion by D.L. & Co. - Thorn Apple Scent ($25.00 US, ~$34 CDN)
This fashionable ceramic medallion is D.L. & Co.’s answer to diffusing their unique scents in small spaces, such as drawers, closets, bedrooms or powder rooms. Each medallion comes with an elegant black ribbon so that it may be hung up easily on hangers, hooks or door knobs and a bottle of refresher oil. Place a few drops of fragranced oil directly onto the ceramic disk once every few weeks.
Subscribers received either the Thorn Apple or Lady Rhubarb Scent. The disk is three inches in diameter, and it is quite elegant in appearance. I am excited to put this in my linens closet as I find sometimes the linens lose their fresh laundry scent and become stale. The scent is a nice mix of crisp apple with a floral bouquet finish.

Caramello Pocket Chocolate Bar by URGE Chocolates, 60g ($5.25 CDN)
55% Dark Belgian chocolate with a thin creamy caramel layered center, topped with just a touch of sea salt for a little crunch and flavour. One of their most popular bars. It is simply scrumptious. Enjoy!
This Pocket Chocolate bar did not last long in my house. It is delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed the mix of sweet and salty.

Playing Footsie Foot Soak by Barefoot Venus, Full Size (200g, $16.50)
99% Pure Coconut Milk Foot Soak. Pamper yourself by soaking your feet in and letting the natural source of lactic acid gently exfoliate and soften, while soothing Epsom Salt helps calm any aches. Created WITH Dry Milk, Coconut Oil, Almond Oil, Shea Butter, and Epsom Salt. Created WITHOUT Parabens, Mineral Oil, Synthetic Colour, and Propylene Glycol.
This Foot Soak sounds very luxurious, and I love coconut. After my weekly dance class, I am going to give this a shot next week. I’m also impressed with the ingredients list. I love products that do not contain parabens.

Lip Macaron by MOR Australia - Passion Flower, Full Size 10g  ($12.95 AUD)
Treat your lips to a kiss of moisture! Containing a rich combination of nourishing Jojoba (hydrate), Coconut Oil and Papaya Seed Oil (soothe and rejuvenate), blended with Beeswax (heal and promote tissue regeneration), antioxidant-rich Cocoa Butter (soften and retain moisture) and Vitamin E to leave lips lusciously soft, nourished and supple. These Lip Macarons add a sheer shine to your lips. This product is not tested on animals.
Subscribers received Rosebud, Passion Flower, Lychee Flower, Peach Nectar, or Cassis Noir variations. I received Passion Flower and am quite happy with it. It goes on smooth and seems to really moisturize, coat and protect my lips. It adds shine to my dry lips and really helps with this cool, Canadian winter we’ve been having. The scent is great, too. It reminds me of a candy from my childhood.

Abbott Collection Gold Foil Polka Dots Plate (~$19) 
Gorgeous multi purpose plate. Suitable for serving food, under candles or bar of soap or catching coins and keys. Food safe. Hand wash only.
This plate is adorable and definitely fits my style! I cannot find the price online, but their suggested retail price is $19. I am going to place it on the night stand beside my bed and use it for those nights that I’ve forgotten to take off my jewellery before climbing into bed.

I really enjoyed the February White Willow box. I like everything, which surprises me and my favourite item was definitely the URGE Pocket Chocolate Bar. The value adds up to approximately $87.00 Canadian this month which is on par with what I’ve come to expect from them. Overall, I’m very happy with this box.
