*product was received free for review

The Grapevine Box is a beauty and lifestyle subscription box that aims at introducing us to the newest, freshest products out there (sometimes even before they are available to the public). And it comes with a great $20 price tag.

Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside the Grapevine Box 
This was initially in another larger box and this smaller box was inside the larger one
Everything that we received in the December Grapevine Box. Such an excellent assortment of products! And do you see that?! COOKIES!

So what is all this stuff? 

$30
This was only available for the first 50 subscribers to the Grapevine Box. This Ayurveda inspired product was in it’s own cool little drawstring bag
This face nectar is a mixture of Grapeseed, Rosehip, and Carrot Seed Oils, also Immortelle, Brahmi,  and Tamanu Oil, and Vitamin E. I tried a little and it was nice but want to test it out for a while to see what results I get, since oils like this take a little to start to really have an effect on your skin
$24.95
I received this liquid lipstick in the color Bossy Berry and I have to say this packaging is amazing.!
It has a little cushion in there and everything! And that color! Love it!
This liquid lipstick looks and is applied like a gloss, it even has high shine like a gloss but is pigmented like a lipstick
And then there’s a light….I think I will be singing praises to this lipstick forever. 
I’ve seen these on the internet a couple times before but I hadn’t seen one in person and I feel super lucky to finally own one! The lipstick also features a “repair kit” which helps to nourish lips (great for these colder winter months)
$5
The claim is that these cookies are ridiculously amazing… and also gluten free and full of good natural ingredients. The package felt a little heavy for two cookies so I wasn’t sure what to expect since I’d never heard of this brand before
This is unlike any cookie that I’ve ever tried. These are more like a dense little cake or scone or something, My daughters and I decided to share.
These are ridiculously amazing. They were more right than they even knew. If you are trying to find a really good cookie to try, definitely seek these out!
$5
I received the original flavor but there were a few different flavors and even tinted butters depending on your box. One of them was Chamomile Blossom which personally sounds amazing!
The formula for this is really smooth and buttery but not at all oily which is really nice. I like this a lot! Side note, are circular chap sticks and lip balms a thing of the past? These oval balms are everywhere!
(sample)
This cream is used in hospitals in Australia for patients that have recently had radiation and chemotherapy. It’s the lightest of the MooGoo’s line of creams and has Milk Protein to keep skin supple and elastic.
This formula is awesome for these dry winter months. I had never heard of this brand before but after looking at their site and all of their products I am intrigued and want to know more!
$7 (set)
I received this duo in the “flirt” scent and have to say, these bottles are absolutely adorable!
I haven’t had a chance to use the body wash yet so I’m unsure what it’s actually like but the scent is exactly like the lotion
They describe this scent as innocent and playful with Bergamot, Water Flowers, Coconut, Muguet and Rose. I had to look Muguet up and it’s basically a Lily of the Valley. But yes, the scent is complex and also fun. The Water Flowers are the main note but the lightly fruity scent of the Coconut is the unsung hero of this lovely scent
This formula is nice and light but mostly serves as a conduit for the scent because that’s the point of this fabulous lotion. 

So in summary

We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The quality of the Grapevine Box is awesome! Not only are these products really nice and of a good quality, they are lesser known which makes them that much more fun and mysterious! As far as presentation we are really happy with the double boxing that the Grapevine Box uses and we love the promotional paper wrap that they use in lieu of a stamp, it’s uncommon and we like that they thought outside of the box (see what we did there?). The curation is so, so good! I LOVE these items! This box is a great way to find out about new beauty products and trends. I can’t even say what my favorite item was because I really liked all of them so much! Another great thing about this box is that it isn’t just beauty. So, we could receive almost anything and the element of surprise is still in full effect for The Grapevine Box
As far as box economy for the $20 that The Grapevine Box costs we received $71.95 in products which is pretty amazing.
