I was recently lucky enough to be sent the very first Artemis & Xena box to try out and see what I thought. It is a monthly subscription box focusing on well-being & empowering young women. I absolutely adore this concept, as someone who has suffered with mental health struggles I think there should be a lot more focus on well-being so something like this is a great idea!
The box came beautifully sealed with washi tape and ribbon, and a couple of stickers on the outside, I thought this was a really cute little personal touch showing that Ani, the creator of the boxes, puts a lot of effort into each and every one she makes.
Now onto the contents… the box included:
Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant
Collection Colour Pro Intense Lip Lacquer
E.L.F Cosmetics All Over Colour Stick
Calming Origami Colouring Book
DIY Dream Catcher Kit
Pukka Night Time Tea
A set of temporary tattoos from Rock Beauty London
Nature Ingredients Cocoa Butter Shower Gel
Rimmel London Love Glitter Nail Polish
Mindfulness Practice Card
and Printed Quotes.
First of all I need to say how impressed I was with how much the box included!! For £12 a month (or 3 months for £30) I think the amount you receive inside is definitely worth it!
My favourite items in the box were the E.L.F cosmetics Colour Stick and the Collection Colour Pro Lip Lacquer… surprise surprise I loved the makeup items! I also really enjoyed using the Calming Origami Colouring book. I’ve had a few anti stress colouring books before but this was the first time I’d ever seen one where you then turn your colourings into origami, I thought it was great!
All the little touches really stood out to me such as the printed quotes, and ‘Artemis & Xena Box Challenge’. A lot of thought has gone into these boxes and it definitely shows!
The boxes are available to purchase here! I can’t wait to get my hands on another one!
