“She has arrived.” Indeed!

A warm and welcoming note from Ms. Elena herself.

The contents are wrapped with a beautiful and elegant-looking tissue paper.

The info card for this box looks very elegant too.

At the back is the list of what’s inside the box. That’s a $207 retail value!

The box is full!

Everything in my discovery box!

Dandelion Girl Cosmetic Bag ($14) This dandelion-designed cosmetic bag fits most of my stuff, so I don’t have to go for separate pouches or fill my bag’s pockets with items that can just be placed inside this bag. I grabbed this for must-have front seat essentials for my Christmas vacation trip!

Tokyo Milk Kabuki Perfumed Drawer Liners ($18) These liners will definitely make our clothes drawers smell fresh and fragrant!

The liners come in Kabuki scent which is composed of the following:  lychee, sugared grapefruit, sweet jasmine and warm vanilla. The scent is really great and not too overpowering!

The sheets look colorful and beautiful with the floral and kabuki (Japanese theater) performer designs. I put them in my drawers immediately. I love the scent!

Tokyo Milk Stationery Set Of Five ($25) Next up is a set of elegant stationery!

Each sheet comes with an envelope, so you can easily send them out whenever you want or have to.

The illustrations look like they’re taken from a children’s picture book. They are accompanied by inspiring sayings or quotes, like for this one, it says “follow your dreams.” And they cover the front and back!

Tokyo Milk Just Desserts Mini Soap Trio ($10) These trio of soaps smell like crisp apples, peaches, violets and roses.

The soaps are triple milled. Ingredients include pure vegetable base and shea butter.  Whoops on the fuzzy pic!

Tokyo Milk Gin & Rosewater Travel Candle ($12) This beautifully packaged travel candle comes in gin rosewater scent which is composed of citrus zest, rosewood, mimosa and mandarin.

It’s an easily familiar scent that will help in making you feel at home no matter where you’re traveling. It doesn’t just smell good, it helps me relax too!

Lollia Relax Perfumed Shower Gel ($22) This lavender and honey fragrant shower gel leaves skin soft, smooth and moisturized after each shower. Aside from lavender and honey, the gel also has some vanilla and other floral notes to it like orchids and Indian amber. It lathers up great and makes me look forward to a shower even more than normal!

Tokyo Milk Kiss Of The Mermaid Lip Ball ($10) This balm is sugared rose flavor.

It comes in an elegant looking box. It can be a great gift for the season, no fancy wraps needed.

The balm is formulated with Vitamin E, aloe and shea butter, leaving lips soft and moist. If you are curious about the other variants, there are also Pucker Up Poseidon and Age of Aquarius. It’s quite emollient and wonderfully fragrant (but doesn’t taste bad!).

Library of Flowers Honeycomb Shea Butter Soap ($11) This soap promises a skin that’s smooth, calm & collected after each use.

It has an ultra-rich shea butter base infused with botanicals for the ultimate moisturizing clean.

The soap also comes carved with the Library of Flowers font. It smells great with a three-toned fragrance: topped with sugared fig, ambrosia honey in the middle, and at the bottom is royal bee blossom.

Tokyo Milk Tainted Love Handcreme ($22) Dark vanilla bean, orchid, white tea, and sandalwood make up the great smell of this handcreme. 

Its key ingredients are shea butter and sweet almond oils that makes the skin feeling smooth and moisturized, minus the sticky feeling from most creams.

It comes in a black sophisticated tube that is really handy. I love this scent and will totally pay full price for it!

Library of Flowers Pinon Incense ($15) This box is all about great scents, and now we have a pack of incense.

It contains 20 bricks and a flower-shaped ceramic burner.

This will make you feel a bit closer to nature with a pine scent – it’s not for me, I’m just not an incense user, but it will make a sweet gift.

The Cottage Greenhouse Cucumber & Honey Handcreme ($15) This handcreme is a stressed skin’s best winter companion.

This creme’s main ingredients are cucumber and honey extracts, avocado butter, shea butter and kale extract. It leaves skin looking healthy and refreshed, and the great thing about this creme is that it is easily absorbed, definitely an instant relief to dry skin. I have almost used up the tube after it picking it up to take on a 2 week trip!

Lollia Wish Travel Handcreme ($15) This ultra-lush & dreamy cream is great to bring along during travels too – or just leave at your keyboard!

It has nourishing macadamia nut and avocado oils, plus hydrating aloe extracts, and replenishing shea butter. it is also infused with floral notes of warm vanilla bean and rice flower, delicately frosted with sugared pastille.

Tokyo Milk Rose with Bees Tote Bag ($18) Aside from the cosmetic bag, the box also includes this pretty tote from Tokyo Milk where I can place all the stuff I got from this box!

This winter edition of Margot Elena is astounding! It contains sweet-smelling, skin-loving items that I really enjoyed. Smelling the cremes and soaps, even the candle and lip balm, gave me a relaxing and warm feeling. Nothing was overpowering or irritating! I even got 3 handcremes that I can bring during travels. The liners are great too. I love the beautiful design, the astonishing savings over retail, and most of all being enveloped by the scents of one of my favorite fragrance lifestyle brands/megabrands! I’m pretty blown away!

    I first discovered the TokyoMilk brand in 2013 at my favorite local boutique. Unfortunately, the owner of the boutique quit carrying TokyoMilk. Why? I can’t think of a reason because it’s amazing! Anyhow, I started ordering my favorite TokyoMilk products online and discovered the other amazing MargotElena brands! When I was alerted to the subscription box, I jumped on it! It’s fantastic! I gave some of my goodies away to my best friend because I already had a few of them which I didn’t mind at all. I got her hooked on MargotElena brands as well! We’re always trading products or giving each other new products to try now! It’s win win! Lollia and TokyoMilk are my top 2 brands but I appreciate the creativity and personal touches that are crafted into every single detail.

    Where do I begin? The packaging alone would make me want to buy the products. The fragrances sound like I would like them and the sizes appear to be adequate. I love draw liners and have always used the same fragrance from Crabtree & Evelyn. May be time for a change.
    Hope all the future boxes will be this full. It would take me more than 3 months to use these products (I think).

    That’s a pretty great box. Thanks for the review!
