Margot Elena Discovery Box is a quarterly box from the parent brand of Library of Flowers, TokyoMilk, Lollia, The Cottage Greenhouse, and Love & Toast with a $200+ value. This box is delivered four times a year for $49.99 per box. With your purchase, you’ll be enrolled in their seasonal membership and receive a box of beauty every 3 months delivered to your doorstep.

The box is sealed with a pink sticker. She has arrived!

I like the floral details on the box!

A wonderful surprise awaits in a form of a poem!

We are welcomed with a note from the curator.

The contents are wrapped in a bright yellow paper.

The info card from this box looks very elegant too.

At the back is a list of what’s inside the box. That’s about $224 retail value!

Yes, the long wait is over.

The box is full!

Everything in the Summer Discovery box!

Margot Elena Honeycomb Stripe Turkish Towel ($44) Perfect for picnics or simply hanging out on a beach, this Turkish towel is a good start to enjoy the summer heat. I love the blue color, simple design and the tassels at both ends are a nice touch.

It is big enough to use for picnics, as a blanket for stargazing at the beach, or a towel after swimming. It has a breathable and highly durable absorbent fabric – and it’s no flimsy towel! This towel was way more substantial than many I have revived in boxes.

Neptune & The Mermaid Gold Foil Print Postcard Set ($8) These are not your ordinary postcards. They are limited editions and can be an appealing decor on your wall. They’re like pieces of art on canvas but in a form of postcards.

Because it is a summer-themed box, all three had vibrant colors and has flowers, mermaids, and sea animals of course.

They also have some nice inspirational quotes for the recipients that go along with the design (in case you really want to give these away). So let’s take a leap of faith and…

Dive into your dreams.

Seas the day!

Let’s also seize the day with some clever puns!

Margot Elena Rhassoul Clay Face Masque ($12) The front of the packaging have taken a poetic turn and I’m loving every bit of it.

This face mask is made of Rhassoul Clay with other natural and preservative-free ingredients. You can add fresh ingredients to the mask as it can be a perfect base and beneficial to skin. You can add crushed strawberries (a natural exfoliator), enriching mashed bananas, honey to lock in moisture or even soothing chamomile tea. The possibilities are endless.

It’s like opening a present. They put a lot of effort into the experience of the consumers upon unveiling the mask.

This aims to clean, to tighten and to tone the skin. It is also suitable for all skin types. Just a quick tip: Once mixed with water, discard the rest of the unused mixture. Please do not keep or refrigerate the unused mixture.

The Cottage Greenhouse Rosemary Mint Foot Cream ($28) Tired feet are comforted and soothed with this revitalizing foot cream. It has an extra burst of natural menthol that immediately invigorates.

It has a rich and extra thick consistency of beeswax and jojoba that leave the feet (especially your soles) feeling refreshed and super soft. It also has a blend of essential oils, rosemary, and fresh peppermint. It is free from parabens, gluten and never tested on animals.

The Cottage Greenhouse Dry Body Oil ($24) This refreshing and hydrating body oil may be perceived as greasy but it’s not! It is fast absorbed by the thirsty and dry skin. It has a potent power of ginger, sugary sweet agave nectar that protects and prevents water loss from the skin. Other key ingredients are coconut, sweet almond, grapeseed, and soybean oils into the mix. It can be layered under lotion for deep conditioning. Another thing I like about it is that it’s free of parabens, gluten, and sulfates, and it’s not tested on animals.

The Cottage Greenhouse Rosemary Mint Foot Scrub ($26) Our feet deserve pampering and this foot scrub will be useful for that purpose. It’s paraben-free, sulfate-free, vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty-free.

The formula has intense exfoliation power but it is not drying. It has a right blend of formula that makes it effective.

It smells refreshing with a mix of menthol, pumice stone, rosemary with a peppermint kick, and essential oils. Great first step before the foot cream!

The Cottage Greenhouse Cucumber & Honey Relaxing Bath Soak ($12) Using this is like turning a normal bath into a luxurious soothing spa treatment. It has a refreshing scent and it contains cucumber and honey extracts with soothing Epsom salts that can make your tired muscles feel rejuvenated. This mineral-rich soak will definitely make your sleep routines calm and interesting.

It’s a good relaxing bath soak that moisturizes the skin. I love the packaging and the wooden spoon is a nice touch. I can use the spoon without contaminating the product inside and without accidentally making it wet. It’s great because I can reuse the bottle too.

Margot Elena Infinite Beauty Nail Color ($15) I’m drawn to this nail polish color because it suits my skin tone and it is interesting but not over the top.

It has a dark, smoky gray creme with a glossy finish.

TokyoMilk Dark Pretty Rotten Lip Elixir ($7) I like the packaging and its dark vibe. Who names their lip elixir pretty rotten? But don’t worry because there’s nothing rotten about it! (This is also one of ME’s most popular scents!)

It has a unique scent with notes of ambrosia apple, amber queen rose, mandarin, and forest greens. Its key ingredients are vitamin E, aloe leaf, green tea, and jasmine.

It’s a smooth and luscious balm, a little of it goes a long way. It is super hydrating and offers a healthy plumping boost. I have been addicted to these forever and was thrilled to find one in the box!

TokyoMilk Dead Sexy Bon Bon Shea Butter Lotion ($20) The packaging is always on point! Dead Sexy is giving me a rebel, romantic, and ethereal vibes. It smells sophisticated and very feminine with notes of vanilla, exotic wood, white orchid, and ebony.

It’s also formulated with rich shea butter, making it super moisturizing.

The lotion is packed in a tube so there’s no contamination and you can squeeze it ’till the last drop. One side features a floral design…

…while the other side is plain and simple in dark brown.

Lollia Poetic License Fine Perfumed Soap Trio ($24) There are three perfumed soaps in the box and all of them have poetic names: Score from the End Credits, Velvet as Night, and Sleeping Under the Stars. They sound romantic!

Score from the End Credits is fresh with twilight musk. You can get a whiff of the scent even without unwrapping them. It certainly amps up and adds luxury to our bathroom.

These soaps are made in France.

It’s a big bar of soap, it occupies the palm of my hand.

Velvet as Night is a combination of rose milk and frankincense.

All of the soaps are wrapped in elegantly colored paper with a pop of gold foil lining and lettering.

All of them are also triple milled.

Sleeping Under the Stars is a combination of sandalwood and honeyed vanilla.

It is like a delicious treat disguised in a bar of soap.

Every bar is nearly identical upon unwrapping so if you open them all at the same time there’s no way of knowing which is which even if you smell them separately. So to appreciate each, it is better to use and open them one by one.

This box screams art and poetry. I love all of the details of the packaging in each of the products they featured, but the best thing is that everything works effectively based on its purpose. The box is full of effort and passion that offers not just products but an experience. It has a variety that didn’t compete with each other but instead work well together and forms an effective skincare routine. We have a complete set right here! 3 bars of perfume soap, 3 limited edition postcards, a foot cream and scrub duo, body oil, body butter, bath soak, lip balm, face mask, and a nail lacquer. It has no fillers and the whole box is valued more than $200 which is way more than the cost of the subscription. It’s like opening a Christmas box that keeps on giving!
