I’ve been subscribed to Goddess Provisions since about last April of 2017. It’s been a great way for me to collect spiritual tools, try out new products I would’ve never bought otherwise, and it’s always a little ray of sunshine and magic when it’s delivered.
It’s also been a hit or miss box. Some months I think “I wouldn’t have paid more than $20 for all of this combined” (the box is $33) and other months I’m really excited for what I received.
I’ve also been spoiled now by the Anita Apothecary box, which is a new witchy box and the first one BLEW MY MIND. The quality and quantity was just insane, and it’s only $9 more than Goddess Provisions.
I’m going to stay subscribed to GP for now because I do like the box, I just wish they’d come stronger with their box game on a consistent basis. Recently it’s felt like they wow us one month, and the next is just basic. This month felt a little basic to me.
But here’s what we got in the February 2018 box, themed “Faerie Magick”.
1. Cottagewicks Candle | $20 Value
So I think this candle is beautiful and smells good, but I don’t like that GP gave it a $20 value.
In the Anita Apothecary box last month, this is the candle that was sent and it was an $18 value:
And it also has crystals and herbs in it, AND in a heavy glass container. A small candle in a tin can shouldn’t be worth $20, or is that just me?
So while I like the candle and will definitely use it, I don’t think they valued it correctly. I looked up these traveling tin candles on the brand’s site and they’re sold for $7, and the crystals and herbs that are put on top wouldn’t cost more than $2, especially bought in bulk.
Their card description says: Lighten up your sacred space with this soy candle made with lavender essential oil and sprinkled with strawberry quartz crystals, turquenite & herbs.
2. Pacifica Liquid Highlighter | $13 Value
Sometimes Goddess Provisions sends makeup which is nice because it’s always vegan and paraben free, etc. This is a highlighter and I tested it out on my wrist so you can see how shimmery it is. It stays on too.
Their card description says: Use this magic wand to apply a touch of faerie dust to your cheekbones, eyelids and/or collarbones.
The only thing I don’t like is that a few months ago they sent this same type of product…something shimmery that you can use as a highlighter or put on your collarbone area. Since they don’t send cosmetics that often, I would’ve preferred something different.
3. Element Botanicals Bath Salts | $7 Value
This was a tiny little bottle of bath salts that said it is good for two baths but I could easily use it all for one bath. Actually I could use two of these bottles for one bath. I wouldn’t consider this a full sized products by any means.
I’ll try to stretch the bottle out by using half of it with my regular bath salts. I usually put in 1.5 cups of epsom salt and half a cup of some other “special” bath salts that have essential oils mixed in them, etc. Although I doubt this bottle even holds half a cup of salts.
Their card description says: Add a dash of these botanical salts featuring rosewood and lavender essential oils into your bath for a cleansing ritual.
4. Biolumenessence Flower Essence | $15 Value
I’m most excited for this. I’ve never had a flower essence before but I keep pulling this oracle card that mentions that I should get some.
I read this on another site about flower essences:
Flower essences have been categorized as vibrational medicine and have been documented to produce beneficial results by gently impacting the body’s subtle energies in a positive way, restoring balance and facilitating the conditions for thriving. – Integrative Nutrition
Their card description says: Put 3-4 drops of this flower essence under your tongue or in your favorite beverage, DIY skincare creation or bath to align with the energy of nature spirits.
5. Lisa Junius Pin | $12 Value
If you like pins, I think this cute. I don’t ever use pins so if you want it, let me know in the comments below and I’ll send it to you.
Their card description says: Add this adorable faerie friend to your favorite jacket or bag where she can remind you to go outside to frolic in nature and connect with your inner child.
6. Superfeast Mushroom Blend | $28 Value
So this was interesting. At first I thought it was herbal tea but then saw it was mushrooms.
The card description says: Boost your immune system by adding a dose of this blend of 8 medicinal mushrooms to your smoothie, juice, elixir, hot chocolate or to a cup of hot water to make a tea.
I’ll definitely be trying this next time I make a smoothie or juice.
7. Rose Quartz | $2 Value
I definitely wouldn’t have paid $2 for this crystal. I have a lot of rose quartz and this was muddy, felt rougher..just not that great of quality.
This is the second time they’ve send me a muddy, bad quality crystal. But again, some of the most beautiful crystals I have came from a Goddess Provisions box. Like that big selenite heart with etching on one side of it; that one came in the November 2017 box.
Their card description says: This stone emits the vibration of unconditional love, joy and emotional healing. Hold it close to your heart to incense your loving feelings towards all beings.
So yeah, this month didn’t impress me. Their November box was amazing and if all their boxes were like that, I’d be shouting Goddess Provisions from my rooftop. Which is why I have stayed subscribed, because like I said, a lot of their boxes I really enjoy. Or the month where they sent a moon bracelet cuff…it’s one of my favorite pieces to wear all the time.
Let’s all visualize Goddess Provisions staying consistently awesome for 2018 and bringing their A game! I would definitely recommend checking out the new witchy box by Anita Apothecary because that one provides MAJOR value and magick. The only downside is they sell out quick so just keep check for when they’re taking more subscribers. You can see my review of their first box here.
If you got this February Faerie Magick box, let me know your thoughts below. Am I being dramatic or were you a little disappointed too?
