Marzia Spring 2017 Subscription Box Review

I’m so excited to review another of CutiePieMarzia’s subscription boxes! It’s a quarterly box curated by CutiePieMarzia, who is an Italian Youtuber. I love her fashion style, so I was really happy to hear she had her own subscription box!

There are 2 versions of this box – the regular one for $29 per quarter, and the Very-Important-Marzipan box for $89. This is a review of the regular box. The CutiePieMarzia box ships from Toronto, Ontario and ships worldwide.

The spring box is flower themed. Love it!

Wire Headband There’s always a fashion accessory, and this wire headband is simple in concept but actually really cute to style. I twisted the ends into a little bow.

Sewing Kit Always handy to have around, this compact features original artwork like on the box — I believe this is one of Marzia’s own illustrations!

The kit has a mirror, safety pins, spare buttons, thread and needles, and a needle threader. Standard kit but these are great to have around just in case.

Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream ($5.60) Includes several occlusive, and fragrance is low on the ingredients list which is great. It has damascus rose water and oil in it. I’m excited to try this as a night cream.

Winky Lux + Marzia Eyeshadow ($5) This eyeshadow is one of five featured in Marzia’s collab with Winky Lux. Foglia is a lovely green, but I don’t see myself reaching for it.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer ($9) An oldie but goodie, the Smashbox original primer is soft and smoothing. I wear it on my cheeks under my blush and highlighter for an even application of powder.

Kenra Professional Blow Dry Spray ($22) A travel-friendly size version of the Kenra Platinum blow dry spray. This smells AMAZING. I don’t blow dry my hair (I let it air dry) but this can also detangle and add shine so I’m going to try it in my routine anyway.

Yes to Cucumbers Micellar Water ($8.99) This leaked a bit in my box but luckily nothing was damaged. It’s a micellar water which is a no-rinse way to clean your face. I personally use micellar water in the morning as a cleanser, and follow it with a proper foaming cleanser in the evening after removing my makeup. It smells like cucumber and is refreshing on the skin.

Derma-E Microdermabrasion Scrub ($8) In the Fall box, we were sent a Derma-E hydrating mist and it’s become my holy grail face spray. I am excited to try this exfoliator. The ingredients include dad sea salt, lemon essential oil, sweet orange essential oil, kaolin clay, Vitamin E, grapeseed oil and jojoba oil.

Kate Aspen Salt & Pepper Shakers ($4.50) How cute are these? They’re small so they won’t hold a lot of S & P but I think they are just so cute and sweet.

The spring box had a value of just over $60 — it’s not the highest value CPM box so far but I’m still very pleased with everything that was included. The floral theme was really fun and I’m glad we once again got some exclusively designed Marzia goodies!

    I love the boxes and I love her style. I think its a little pricey.($103.00 for the nicer box) It usually has some of her art in it and hand picked items. The customer service is horrible…HORRIBLE. They don’t answer their phones during the time designated so you cannot change or cancel your subscription. I may contact the better business bureau -its that bad.

      Oh wow, sorry to hear about that. Definitely file a chargeback with your bank or credit card.

      I agree that the VIM box is ridiculously overpriced. The value of the regular box also has dwindled, the summer box was a bit disappointing. But the earlier boxes had crazy high value, which I think is hard to sustain long-term. Still, it’s a quarterly box so I would expect a higher value.

    Make sure you check out what the Wall Street Journal and Wired have to say about Pewdiepie before you promote him on this site. What’s wrong with you?

      Hi Deborah – that description has been the same over all the boxes, after we write the intros we only update them infrquently. I’m removing the reference entirely, it really doesn’t have anything to do with the box, which doesn’t have anything to do with him.

        Was on my way to say the same – it’s her own company and has nothing to do with him. Besides, this hardly seems the platform to discuss the subject as it is. :]
