Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside the Awaken Subscription Box
We have to say that their box is one of our all time favorites. The logo is beautiful!
Everything that we received in our July Awaken Box. What a colorful mix – simply stunning!
So what is all this stuff?
Our box insert that tells us about the organization the box is supporting this month
This Ugandan home for children helps rescued children from neglect, abuse, and trafficking among many other things have a loving, stable, and secure home with access to food, education and spirituality. Each box purchased will help support the ongoing needs of Chayah’s Children and also the women who have created these handcrafted items.
A traditional Ugandan recipe. We haven’t had a chance to try this yet but are curious to try it out!
This exfoliant buffs away dermal debris to reveal clearer and brighter complexion. While it has amazing exfoliating capabilities it’s gentle enough that it won’t irritate your skin. And you can feel confident using this spray knowing it’s sulfate and paraben free
This is great to use before you apply makeup. And using the spray also makes it easier for your skin to absorb skincare products that you put on.
This gorgeous coral and bronze beaded necklace has a braided design and a unique clasp. We love the colors and think this is perfect for summer! This necklace is a great way to dress up a t-shirt and jeans or pair with your little black dress.
We love the way it lays on the neck – it’s the perfect length!
This bold peacock fabric is a great way to make any simple outfit pop! The quilted design is soft and washable. You can use it as a clutch or as a makeup bag to tuck into your larger purse!
We love how the two pieces that we received go beautifully together!
So in summary
We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Awaken Box is an amazing concept and a great way to put some positive energy back into the world. It gives us the ability to shop small, help give back, and treat ourselves all at once! The presentation is great, we love the package! The quality is awesome, the exfoliant is amazing as are the other two items that we received. The curation is fantastic! We love that we were taken to a destination and shown a place with real people. It makes the stories really hit home. The addition of the recipe is a great way to bring it all together – and our items matched!
As far as box economy we aren’t sure of the price of most of the items we received but we definitely think at $39 the Awaken Box is an awesome deal!
