I’m not sure how I heard about these but I did….and they are expensive!!! They have a one time purchase ($95) and a recurring quarterly subscription ($85.10). I opted for the one time purchase and I think I had a discount…although I honestly don’t remember. As of this post, this box is still available for purchase if you like what’s inside!
The theme for this box is Love. I haven’t seen many people unbox this so lets dive in! I’m excited!!!
The box is gorgeous and BIG! This will definitely go into my collection of boxes.
Inside is just as gorgeous and filled with all kinds of interesting looking goodies.
This is a decent little booklet that feels amazing. I may or may not have spent some time just petting the booklet…….it’s a quality booklet y’all. I am also going to include any promo codes they listed because YOLO.
Here is a little blurb about this box. Like I said, the theme is LOVE – specifically self-love.
If you guys want to see the size of items relative to my lovely face and surroundings, make sure to check out my video!
First Item: Oribe Serene Scalp Soothing Leave-On Treatment – $48
Instant relief. This lightweight and fast-absorbing leave-on treatment removes dandruff flakes awhile cooling mint and calming chamomile soothe and balance the scalp.
I think this is a really interesting product to include in the box and I am really excited about it! I haven’t tried it out as of yet because I am nervous, but I will make sure to review in a weekly update so you guy can find out. I am worried it might weigh my hair down too much – I try to avoid putting anything on my roots.
Second Item: Lipstick Queen Method in the Madness Lipstick – $25
Swirls of ultra-luxe creamy hues combine into one bold lip color of its own.
First off, I love this packaging so much! It’s so fun and I wish I could take a quality picture of the actual lipstick because it has the most gorgeous swirls in it (check out my video to see).
Let me swatch it for you:
This formula is so creamy and smooth. It glides on like a dream and the color is SO beautifully pigmented. I am really excited to wear this for everyone to see…plus, I love the swirls.
Third Item: Rifle Paper Co. 2019 Juliet Rose Pocket Agenda – $14
This pocket agenda proves great things can come in pretty, petite packages. The pages inside offer four views: monthly, weekly, daily, and a section for notes.
I love planners. Ever since the dawn of my time, I have written down exactly what I need to/want to do for the day. This is so beautiful and floral which is definitely my style. I love that I can throw this in a purse or diaper bag and tote it around with me easily.
Fourth Item: Corpus Natural Deodorant – $22 (promo code: SUNDAY5 for $5 off your purchase)
Long-lasting formula with naturally derived enzymes and plant extracts.
I was so nervous about this product after my FabFitFun Fail with the natural deodorant they sent. This one is SO MUCH BETTER! The formula is much better quality in my opinion. It spreads so easily and gives the feeling of actual coverage. I have to admit, I am a sweaty person but this has some good staying power and made me feel like my perspiration was being controlled. The scent is pleasant but isn’t overly abundant. I don’t mind that but usually the only way I know if anything is working is if I can smell it….that being said, I put it on during a pretty low-key day and I don’t know what I would trust it if I was doing anything physical.
Fifth Item: The Perfect V VV Cream Gentle Exfoliator – $34 (20% off with sundayriley)
It is pure, indulgent pampering for your “V” that is pH-balances, dermatologist and gynecologist tested without parabens or SLS and fragrance-free.
I didn’t know this was a thing that people would seek out and holy hell, it’s freaking $34….. I am annoyed that it is branded in the way that it is and that the directions explicitly state that it is for the ‘v’. Like. You’re limiting yourself SO much by marketing that way. Anyone who shaves anything needs to exfoliate that area.
That being said, I used this on my legs to see what it would be like. The concept of an exfoliating cream as opposed to an exfoliating wash is strange to me. Sure enough, this product is weird. It has small, fine textured granules which is pleasant enough…but they don’t go away. It doesn’t say to wash them off. If you were using this in your nether-regions then you’d be going about your day with gritty bits. Who wants that. It’s like rolling around on a sandy beach and not rinsing off.
Sixth Item: The Perfect V VV Beauty Sheet – $2/sheet (20% off with sundayriley)
I guess this is a fancy cleansing wipe (LOL at the fact the called it a beauty sheet). They didn’t actually send anything so I can’t review it which might be nice considering we may have gotten a little too personal in here. Again, why they would market towards just females is beyond me – we all need cleanliness.
Seventh Item: Maison Du Soir Robe – $100 (20% off with MDSSUNDAY)
The design of this robe is exclusively created for Sunday Riley. Maison Du Stir is a contemporary sleep and loungewear line dedicated to bridge the divide between daywear and sleepwear.
Holy cow, this is an expensive ass robe. I swear on my life I bought an exact replica of this from Target for $20. It is surprisingly thin and sheer……….and it’s a robe the I would never pay $100 for. So.
Next, we have a cute little bubble wrap plastic bag I had to take a picture of!
Two products are in here!!
Eighth Item: Sunday Riley CEO Rapid Flash Brightening Serum – $45
This hydrating antioxidant formula instantly polishes, protects, and illuminates the skin, while phytosterols help to reduce the look of redness and skin sensitivity.
Ok, this is weird to me. I looked on their website because I was like ‘this is not full-size…..but that can’t be because why in the ever loving world would they not put a full-size of their own product in their own box?!?!’……
You guys. This isn’t full size. Like my TestTube Beauty had a full-size serum but this actual Sunday Riley box doesn’t. That’s actually annoying because this is why I bought this box. Regardless, I am really excited to use this. I love Sunday Riley products and I haven’t tried this one yet. The retinoid I am using by them (from my TestTube Beauty box) is amazing so far. After I finish up that one, I will get to using this one!
Ninth Item: Sunday Riley CEO Glow Face Oil – $40
Beauty-infused carrier oils boost the delivery of this cutting-edge Vitamin C cocktail while the highest concentration of antioxidants protect, balance, and soothe.
Ok, this is so frustrating. Again, this is NOT full-size. Why did they do this?!?!?! This is so annoying!!!!!! With that being said, it’s freaking amazing. I learned that you use oils after everything in your skincare routine and let me tell you, I feel like this is a game changer. It absorbed to a nice, manageable amount on my face but it stepped my hydration game up so much without leaving me feeling greasy or too oily. It is also SO lightweight and the smell reminds me of a really fancy olive oil….which sounds weird in my mind as I am typing this up but I really like fancy, expensive olive oil.
Tenth Item: Maude Vibe – $45 (15% off with Sunday15)
The Vibe was created to simplify sex. Tired of seeing outdates, over-assorted and gendered approach to a human experience?
I believe sexual health is just as important as mental health and physical health. I appreciate that they included something geared more towards sexual health in this box for the theme of ‘love’. I also think this particular vibe can be used anywhere on the body, for any gender. The silicone is so soft and I appreciate that this isn’t a typical vibe shape – it is more tasteful and artistic. The pouch is super cute and I love that it is rechargeable! Plus, there is a travel lock which seems handy. Also to note, you can use this while charging.
As far as vibrations go, it has 3 settings that drastically increase in strength. The vibration isn’t too buzzy which is a really nice feature! The vibration is almost exclusively concentrated in the upper third of the vibe which is unfortunate because it seems to pinpoint the vibration meaning that more delicate, sensitive areas might experience too much of a stimulation overload. However, if you are using this over less sensitive area like shoulder blades or things of that nature, this really would help you get to a specific spot.
Here is the final lineup! Overall, I really think this box is great. I love the variety of items in here and the value is definitely there. I do have some issues though.
- Why the hell did they not include their own products as full-sized?
- Who in the hell would pay $100 for that robe? Put the money into the other products. Sheesh.
- Why would they send a paper that represents a product and not the actual product?
- I really have a problem with the fact that this is just so female centered. Yes, I am sure that most subscribers are female. Yes, every product can be used with any gender. The issue is that there are two products that are specially geared toward women – specially the ‘v’ for which the products are actually tastelessly named. That’s just such a stupid marketing strategy since the world seems to be moving in a more gender neutral way. I am not trying to be political or anything, but I do think that they should have made this box that appeals to any gender because skincare, self-love, and embracing your own sexuality should be all-inclusive. Also, that exfoliant is just freaking weird.
I’d love to know what you guys think! Am I over-analyzing this too much? I probably am. Maybe it was the fact they didn’t put their own products full-sized and it made me cranky.
As always, thank you so so much for reading! Til next time!
