Aww yeah, it’s time for this season’s CAUSEBOX unboxing… featuring the CAUSEBOX Winter 2020 box!
What is CAUSEBOX?
CAUSEBOX is a quarterly subscription box specifically curated with socially conscious products for women. In each seasonal box, you’ll receive various lifestyle products that are cruelty-free and sustainably made. Not only are they focused on ethical and sustainable production, but many featured brands donate a portion of proceeds to charities and/or employ local artisans. Talk about supporting a good cause!
The Subscription Box: CAUSEBOX
Cost: $54.95 per box on a quarterly basis, or $49.95 per box with an annual subscription
What You’ll Get: A seasonal curation of 6-8 products that are community-focused, ethically made, and environmentally conscious. Products will include health, beauty, fitness, wellness, apparel, and home products selected by the CAUSEBOX team.
Ships to: The US for free, additional cost to Canada.
DEAL ALERT: Use code WELCOME20 to save 20% off your first box!
How Does CAUSEBOX Work?
Every three months, you’ll receive a box of products worth $200+. The boxes are set to ship 4x per year. You can signup as an Annual Member (pay for the year in advance, with added perks) or as a Quarterly Member (pay per box seasonally). To sign up, first, you’ll need to select a membership type. After that, you’ll create an account, enter your payment information, then wait for the upcoming season’s box to arrive at your door.
What’s Inside a CAUSEBOX?
CAUSEBOX is delivered on a seasonal schedule— spring, summer, fall, and winter. Each box offers 6-8 new products that are customizable or a complete surprise, depending on your membership type and your preference. The product offerings range anywhere from wellness products, housewares, and art to jewelry, accessories, apparel, and beauty products.
One of the distinguishing features of this box is that it comes with a magazine that contains the story behind every product included. This allows you to learn about the items you’re paying for and how they were sourced. Talk about shopping for a cause!
You never know what you’re going to get, but you can feel confident about whatever you do get. If you sign up for the annual subscription service, you get the added flexibility to customize some of the products in your box.
How Much Does CAUSEBOX Cost?
If you sign up for the annual membership ($199.80) your four boxes back out to $49.95 per box. The annual subscription option requires customers to pay a one-time fee upfront. This one-time payment gets you four boxes, delivered every three months.
If that’s too much of a commitment and you’d rather go with a quarterly membership, the cost of each box is $54.95. If you opt for the quarterly membership and end up getting a whole year’s worth, you will end up paying $20 more than Annual Members. You can also just join as a Quarterly Member to try just the one box before deciding if you want to commit to the annual membership.
In terms of shipping, CAUSEBOX shipping is free in the United States, excluding Hawaii and Alaska ($7.95 shipping fee). CAUSEBOX ships to Canada for $7.95 as well, with no additional charge for duties or taxes.
CAUSEBOX Winter 2020 Box Review
Get ready for the wintery, cold weather with a new seasonal box from CAUSEBOX! From cozy cloud wraps to brushed gold kettles, slouchy socks to silky pillowcases, and marble coasters to foot masks all of the amazing products in this season’s box certainly don’t disappoint.
I’ve been an official CAUSEBOX annual member since the beginning of 2020 and have been loving every minute of it (I even wish these boxes could be delivered on a monthly basis). The Fall 2020 box was such a delight–I couldn’t wait to see what CAUSEBOX would deliver this quarter. Let’s take a peek at what’s inside the CAUSEBOX Winter 2020 box!
The CAUSEBOX Fall Box 2020 – Total Retail Value: $262 USD
First Impressions: The box design and postcard artwork was so awesome this quarter.
Sitting right on top was the quarterly mini-mag that comes along with every box. So what did the CAUSEBOX magazine contain this quarter? The Editor’s Note this quarter focused a lot on the theme of comfort during an unprecedented time (quarantining during the pandemic). With that, I immediately understood what the theme of this quarter’s box would be– feeling great and practicing self-care in your own home.
CAUSEBOX Product #1:
ROSE & FITZGERALD Brushed Gold Kettle – Retail Value: $98
This brushed gold kettle is not only a stovetop statement piece but one of my favorite products from a do-good perspective this season. Per the CAUSEBOX mini-mag, 300 artisans were employed in manufacturing the kettles. We love that because it makes us truly feel good about what we own and use on an everyday basis. Each kettle is carefully hand-dipped to achieve the perfect golden hue. Every morning when we go to make our coffee and tea, it’s been serving as a bright reminder of all the good vibes to come in the day!
CAUSEBOX Product #2
Boon Supply Reusable Zip Pouches – Retail Value: $22
We are so excited to have gotten reusable zip lock bags as part of our CAUSEBOX! Reusable pouches have always been on our wishlist, but due to relatively high prices, we’ve never pulled the trigger on a set of our own. It’s in our household now and we really couldn’t be happier with them. They’re pretty thick and hefty, so they won’t get all warped and wrinkly with multiple uses.
The Boon Supply Reusable Zip Pouches come in 5 different sizes, and replace more than 300 single-use bags each year! Not only are these an excellent step towards a more sustainable world, but Boon Supply also gives so much back with its unique business model. For each purchase, Boon Supply will take 40% of every order to support a fundraiser of your choice. CAUSEBOX chose to support Teach for America, which we can certainly get behind!
CAUSEBOX Product #3
SKIN & CO. Truffle Therapy Face Toner – Retail Value: $30
You guys, this toner by SKIN&CO is not like your average toner. Once applied, it’s actually soothing and refreshing! Since it’s made with witch hazel, truffle, and rosemary, this toner not only refreshes and hydrates but also removes bacteria and cleans the skin naturally. It’ll remove dead skin and bacteria to prevent future breakouts while boosting the skin with extra antioxidants.
A toner is an essential part of the beauty routine for healthy, youthful-looking skin. I’m not doing as good of a job right now on my skin routine (traditionally it’s just been some face wash, then a dab of moisturizer), but I’m definitely going to rotate this into my daily skincare routine and put this toner to good use. So far, what I’ve noticed is this toner does an amazing job at keeping my skin hydrated, radiant and fresh!
CAUSEBOX Product #4
Zeal Living Marble Geo Coasters – Retail Value: $42
This is such a sophisticated set of coasters handmade out of marble. We fell in love with them as soon as we saw them. Not only are they super hefty and well-built, but the bottoms are thoughtfully finished with cork. We recently got a new set of West Elm coasters gifted to us, and now we’re conflicted on which ones to keep! (Eight coasters for a 1-bedroom apartment is too many coasters!) If we do end up gifting these away, it’s going to be such a treat to tell the recipient about the cause behind them!
The best part about these coasters? These essential modern home artisan-crafted pieces were made by a 60% female workforce! How Zeal Living is changing the world by its products: they sustainably employ over 9,000 artisans in 17 African countries.
CAUSEBOX Product #5
Maggie’s Organic Heathered Slouchy Socks – Retail Value: $25
You’ve probably heard of Fair Trade, but Maggie’s Organics takes it to a whole new level. Made with organic cotton grown by family farmers in Texas and small scale producers in Tanzania, these are probably some of the most thoughtful (and comfortable) socks I’ll ever own.
This could not be more perfect for winter. Rainy days, Zoom calls from home, movie nights with bae, you name it. You can bet these snug, slouchy socks are going to be on my feet. The cotton is so soft, I can tell they’re made of really good quality.
CAUSEBOX Product #6
SOON SKINCARE Peony Foot Masks – Retail Value: $45
Okay, I’ll be honest. I’ve never actually used a foot mask before, so I want to thank CAUSEBOX and Soon Skincare for such an awesome first experience. These foot masks by Soon Skincare were mindblowing and revolutionary for my poor feet, who were definitely in need of some tender love and care. They’re not the type of foot masks that cause your feet to peel for days (yuck).
Instead, this foot repair mask has a deep-penetrating formula that infuses vitamins and minerals to nourish your feet. It intensely hydrates, leaving your feet softer and smoother.
After trying these bad boys on my feet, I discovered something else about SOON Skincare. Not only do they sell amazing foot masks, but they also have some really cool stuff for the face worth checking out. These are currently on my Amazon shopping list: Soon Skincare Hydrating Under Eye Masks and Soon Skincare Biocellulose Skin Firming Sheet Masks for Face.
Final Thoughts: CAUSEBOX Winter Box 2020
Retail Value of my Fall Box: $262 USD
Subscription Box Expert Rating: 9/10
It was another month of loving the contents of my CAUSEBOX, that’s for sure. At first glance, I wasn’t too excited about every single item, but once I started actually using everything (and I was finding that I was using them literally every day), I was so grateful to have received everything I got.
My boyfriend and I are using the facial toner on a nightly basis, the water kettle on a daily basis (we’re actually using it multiple times per day), and the same can be said about the coasters and zip lock bags! And of course, on our self-care nights in, we throw on those foot masks while we lay back and watch movies on the couch.
My favorites products of the CAUSEBOX Winter 2020 box? The gold-brushed kettle, marble coasters, and reusable zipper bags. These were all things that I would likely not have purchased on my own due to their inherently higher costs. Knowing me, I would have opted for the cheaper, less sustainable options out there.
This is why I am SO obsessed with the value CAUSEBOX delivers each and every season. I get really high-quality products that are not only sustainable but also have super empowering missions and stories behind them. I love how I get to read about each and every product, why the CAUSEBOX team chose that product, and what value it brings to either the workers, the business owners, or both. Not only do these products make me feel good on the outside, but I also feel great knowing I’m supporting a cause. That’s essentially what CAUSEBOX is all about.
All in all, I am a happier, softer, and cozier lady with all my new goodies!
CAUSEBOX Is For You If…
- you like products that are cruelty-free and ethically made
- you want to feel good about where your money is going (CAUSEBOX works with charities and donates to women’s organizations)
- you value quality over quantity of products you receive
- you want to be able to customize what you get in your box
Considering Subscribing To CAUSEBOX?
CAUSEBOX offers customers two subscription options: the quarterly subscription ($54.95 per box), and the annual subscription ($49.95 per box, a total of $199.80 per year). My recommendation? Go for the annual–you won’t regret it.
The annual fee might seem steep for 4 boxes throughout the year, but if you consider the fact that the average box contains $150+ worth of socially-conscious products, this is actually quite a steal. If you’re more frugal, minimalistic, and only buy what you know to be tried and true, then a CAUSEBOX subscription might not be for you.
However, if you love trying new products, supporting ethical and socially-conscious brands, and are open to discovering new lifestyle and wellness products, CAUSEBOX is definitely a great subscription to get. We highly recommend CAUSEBOX at Subscription Box Expert!
