Forget it--don't waste your money! I had not subscribed to this subscription box when it was a lower price but I saw the video of an "influencer" who had received the Barcelona box-- and it was gorgeous!--wonderful Spanish beauty items, flavored olive oil, a really lovely scarf and even a small pained dish.So although this subscription is $88, I ordered it expecting really wonderful things. T\ The box arrived quick;y-- the presentation was super lovely, well-packed with lots of "sizzles", tissue ans ribbon, and a fancy booklet. . Their site stated that they had increased the price and increased the time between the boxes to have time to carefully curate. OK-- so for $99, this was what I received in this carefully curated box with this month's theme city of Buenos Aaries: 1. a "card holder: key ring?, too small to hold any card with a small square card in it which turned out to be an ad for an online fashion business. It went into the trash bin. 2. a mini-mini-mini cookie--2 bites--I took 1 bite and it went into the trash bin. 3. Five small pieces of a fragrant native wood ties with a ribbon to be used as incense but you must provide your own fireproof dish. As I don;t have a pretty little fireproof dish and I don't want to put sand in a coffee cup to hold the piece of wood, well, you guessed!!--into the trash bin! 4. Twelve brushes, no better nor worse than I already have. I gave them to my niece. 5. A box of Five face masks!-- YES---5! !!!! I realize that the curators have no idea to the extent that I detest face masks! All my sisters detest face masks . I expect 1 face mask in every beauty box-- but 5? Seriously??!!!. I gave them to my hairdresser. 6. An eye shadow palette--- another NEUTRAL palette! How many neutral palettes can these beauty boxes send out?! I have 7 neutral palettes! It went to my hairdresser as my sisters and niece didn't want it. 7. Lastly, an aloe spray to be used on skin and hair. I kept that one and it is quite nice/ So there it is--3 items for the trash bin, 3 items for my hairdresser an 1 item for me/ It was a dull, boring, poorly curated box. I cancelled. I will not take a chance on another one. I have given good reviews and not so good reviews, but I have never given such a terrible review. Just remember, ladies, $99!.
