Everything in the Spring discovery box!

Library Of Flowers Willow & Water Perfumed Shower Gel ($22) Formulated with shea butter and jojoba oil, this shower gel helps transform dull skin and replenish vital moisture. I like its sweet scent which is a combination of cut greens, flowering lotus, and watercress.

Lollia At Last Shea Butter Handcreme ($25) First of all, the packaging of looks so pretty. I like the white lace petals and the sunny yellow box! Also glad to find out that they’re reusable! Now, onto the hand cream…

The formula is really hydrating, thanks to macadamia nut, avocado oils, aloe extracts, and shea butter. Meanwhile, the lovely scent comes from powdery rice flower, southern magnolias, white petals, and demure mimosa. Light and gentle, this cream is something I’d love to use everyday!

Tokyo Milk Gin & Rose Water Eau De Parfum ($30) This perfume has notes of citrus zest, rosewood, mimosa, and mandarin. The scent is really enticing and reminds me of summer, but can also be worn no matter what the season. It lasts quite a long time too!

The Cottage Greenhouse Papaya & Honeysuckle Mask ($28) Using this mask once a week will help exfoliate, cleanse, and hydrate your skin. It works with normal and dry skin types.

The key ingredients are pineapple, apricot, and lemon. You can apply the mask to your face using fingertips and allow it to set for 10-15 minutes. Then, rinse and pat dry.

It has a gel-like consistency which applies well on the skin. The formula also makes the skin immediately refreshed and glowing without the sting.

The Cottage Greenhouse Rosemary Mint Travel Candle ($12) Packed in a travel-friendly tin can, this candle has a rejuvenating scent composed of citrusy and eucalyptus top notes, herbaceous middle note, and patchouli as the base note. My daughter is totally into creating a relaxing mood so I snuck this into her Easter basket – she was thrilled that the bunny gave her a minty, refreshing candle (and it smelled fantastic!).

The Cottage Greenhouse Pomegranate Facial Serum ($30) Dry skin is one thing that we are all avoiding right now. This face serum is packed with antioxidants which will be helpful in keeping the skin hydrated and radiant. You can use it alone, but since it’s lightweight and fast-absorbing, it also works great under makeup.

The serum is made with natural ingredients, including pomegranate, lavender, evening primrose, and olive oil. It’s paraben-free and cruelty-free too!

Cube soaps from The Cottage Greenhouse, all infused with botanical ingredients!

The Cottage Greenhouse Cucumber French Soap ($6.50) Cucumbers are rich in vitamins A and C, and helps soothe skin irritations.

The Cottage Greenhouse Grapefruit French Soap ($6.50) Grapefruits are rich in antioxidants and anti-aging properties. It also evens skin tone and fights off free radicals.

The Cottage Greenhouse Fig French Soap ($6.50) Figs extract also works great on aging skin, as it reduces wrinkle depth.

The soaps come in beautiful wrappers.

You can easily identify the soap cubes through their color, as they also resemble some hue from their main ingredients. The soaps lather well, and they’re all hand-made with shea butter that provides nourishment to the skin. I totally store soap in clothing drawers and had a delightful time assigning everyone a soap! Grapefruit is for me, of course – so yummy!

Tokyo Milk Signature Stationery Set Of 5 ($25) A set of elegant, high-quality stationery including 5 cards with different designs.

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

The insides are all blank, giving you so much space to write down your message.

The illustrations look like they’re taken from a children’s picture book. They are accompanied by inspiring sayings or quotes. This one says “you totally rule.”

If you look good, you’ll also feel good… but it also works the other way around.

My favorite from the bunch is this funny card featuring a cat trying to hypnotize the reader. I’m sending this to a cat-loving friend!

Meanwhile, this card featuring a candy print is simple but cute. It would be great to use when you need someone to know that you appreciate them and their sweet gestures! There were two of these.

The last card was made for birthdays. It features an elephant carrying a gift on his trunk!

Margot Elena Handwoven Natural Fiber Tassel Scarf ($32) It’s a beautiful heathered aqua and beige scarf with turquoise tassels!

It’s thin and lightweight with some great tassel action. These are nice and short, so they’re almost pom-pom in style.

The scarf measures 26” x 70” (around 66 cm x 178 cm).

The blue tassels are so cute! I think this will be a good spring and summer scarf.

Spring is all about new beginnings, and I love how I can use all these items to help me create that fresh start. There was a great variety of items, from skin care to self care to fashion, so I really couldn’t ask for more. The whole curation just gives off a luxurious vibe! When it comes to perfumes and other scented stuff, this box is really reliable. I’m so happy with my Library of Flowers hand cream and Tokyo Milk perfume. They even included a travel candle, a shower gel, and three lovely soap cubes! Margot Elena box is such an olfactory feast, with elegant lifestyle items thrown in every quarter. I’m so pleased with the spring curation and I’m already looking forward to what they have in store for me this summer!  This box is so fabulous it’s hard to believe it’s just their second box!

    I love this subscription. Will have to breakdown and subscribe. As long as other items such as cards/scarfs are included it will continue to be a good box. If it is ever just skin care and fragrances that would be too much.

    I’m in love with the hand cream. I will purchase it if it is an add-on for the summer box. This box made me happy 🙂
