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. Marzia actually recently quit YouTube to focus on her designing and art career, so I was worried her box would be shut down. Looks like it’s still going strong!
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.
Mountains of squiggles! I’m already super excited by the outside of the box which has a starry SPACE theme!
The information card features more artwork by @alikiful on Instagram — check out her amazing art on her page!
The information card lists everything including. I noticed a few mistakes — the Kitsch Hair Ties were a VIM (Very Important Marzipan) item only, and I had additional samples from Elemis and Fresh.
Art Print — A lovely piece of art with a girl in an observatory looking out at the night sky, illustrated by @alikiful
Notebook and Custom Pencils — More goodies designed by @alikiful including four pencils and a cute notebook. The pages are blank so you can sketch or write.
Yes To Triple Masking Kit ($3.99) — I loooove this. Yes To is a new fave of mine as I switched to cruelty-free this year. This is a triple masking kit so you can multimask and target specific areas on your face. My chin has been congested lately so I can see myself using the charcoal mask there, and then the aloe on my dry forehead/brow and the brightening on my cheeks!
Verso Super Facial Serum sample ($11.08) — Verso is a brand I’ve wanted to try for a long time. It contains Retinol 8 which is 10 times stronger than regular Retinol. Retinol is a great ingredient I love using in my routine because it stimulates the production of collagen which we lose as we age.
Omorovicza Moor Mud Cleanser ($3.75) — I’ve had the luck to try several Omorovicza products through Look Fantastic. This is one I haven’t tried. It’s a mud cleanser that penetrates deeply into pores to clean them out.
Skin&Lab Intensive Barrierderm Cream ($0.25) — A sample of a Kbeauty brand called Skin&Lab. I haven’t heard of them before but they are popping up at Ulta in the US! This is a soothing cream with hyaluronic acid for hydration and ceramide for repairing and maintaining the skin’s natural barriers. I’m excited to try this.
Rose Deep Hydrating Face Cream ($5.60) — This product isn’t listed on the card. I believe Marzia has included this product before. It’s a nice lightweight cream infused with rosewater.
Elemis Peptide 1000 Flowers Mask ($9) — A new Elemis product to me that I haven’t tried. It has sweet clover extract and peptides to replenish moisture, and lactic acid to help resurface.
Sunday Riley Good Genes ($17.50) — I’m honestly not a Sunday Riley fan (falsifying reviews is sketch) but Marzia is a big fan and has included multiple products over the course of the last two years’ worth of boxes. This is a fairly potent glycolic acid serum and should be used carefully and followed up with sunscreen!
Winky Lux Dattero Lipstick ($15) — This is for me another repeat item, as this was sent in a previous box. This one will be gifted, but Winky Lux products are wonderful and I love the colourful and quirky packaging. Dattero is a brown peach.
Enamel Pin — I love space. I also love collecting enamel pins, and actually have an ita bag to display all of my pins on, which a space theme. This pin couldn’t be more perfect for me, and I can’t wait to add it to my collection!
The Winter box has a value of at least $66 for all of the products I could find prices for, and I would guess around another $10-15 for the exclusive art products included. I noted there were some duplicate products, some issues on the info card, and I also am a bit disappointed by the foil samples as there were three of them and I would rather something a bit more useful than one-use products. Still, it’s a fun box and I loved the space theme.
What did you think of this season’s Marzia box?
