Sweet Delights Divalicious Sample box Review!

Yes, you read right!  It's another box!  Sweet Divalicious Delights is a sample box and is slightly different from the rest (i.e. TopBox, Luxebox, Glymm, and Glossybox).  This box is seasonal (kind of like the new Luxebox format) and guarantees anywhere between 10-15 sample to full sized items, all for $26 (includes shipping).  The items range from beauty items to jewellery. The majority of the items are natural and organic and form "local" artisans and companies (YAY!). This box ships to Canada and US.  


It's important to sign up for their newsletter because they often send you sneak peeks and let you know when the box is going on sale.  It is first come, first serve, so once they sell out, it's out.  This box sold out in 2 hours!!!!


When I first received the box, it was chock full of goodies - and I mean brimming!
I don't even know where to begin!  


Acrylic Graphic Design Picture - I don't know what to do with it, but it's interesting.
Gourmet Scented Pencils - grape and bubblegum.  I'm a pen girl, so I think that I'll be giving these away to my niece. 
Del Sol colour changing nail polish. 
Three lip balms (one is called Monkey Farts!!!  HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!)
Small pot of concealer.
A BUNCH of soaps.  They range anywhere between guest sized to deluxe size.  All smell delicious!
More miscellaneous samples.  
John Frieda hair samples
Bugs Away natural bug spray.  Cool!  This is a fair sized sample, and with the wet weather that we've been having, I'm probably going to need it!
Lots of lotion samples.  
Jewellery!!! I received a very cute peas in a pod pendant, pie on a plate with fork and knife earrings and a red swarovski flower pendant.  I love the peas in a pod pendant.  It's very delicate and pretty.
So, this is the box!  I'm not sure if I'm going to get it again.  The one good thing about this box is that they let you see the box contributors, with links to their website, so you can check them out before you purchase the box.  


What do you think of this box? Did you order one?

  1. Del Sol Nail Polishes are a lot of fun! Especially for this summer. They are already $10! I bought 3 of them when I was in the carribean!

    1. NICE! I actually wasn't too impressed with the DelSol polish, but now you girls have me all amped up to try it! It just looked very gimmicky to me...like the mood changing lip colour (went on purple or blue but always changed to red!). It changes to this aqua green. I forgot to take a pic of it. :(

    2. LOL, what ARE you going to do what that graphic acrylic art? I got different lip balms than you. I still got the Lip Zipz (in a citrus scent), but I got a lip balm where the whole stick is made of three flavours and you can snap off the flavours if you get bored of one! Were you up super early to get this box? I was up at freakin' 5am. I set my laptop up so that all I had to do was click "BUY"!

  12. First of all, I'd like to say that I totally appreciate the name of your blog. Who says that nerds can't be fashion people!

    And it looks like a pretty good mixed box, but the scented pen is a tad random.

    Sincerely,
    Sabrina

    1. Thank you so much for the nomination! :)

      OH, yeah, I forgot that LooseButton is changing their format. I bet you that we get wwwaaaayyyyyy better (definitely more!) items in this box than in that one (unless they've drastically improved things!)

  14. Great box!!! I love the colour of polish you got..I was a little bummed with mine!

    1. Which colour did you get? I'm not exactly impressed with this colour. Well, no, it's a fantastic colour, but I have two other polishes that are very similar!

    2. I think mine is green and it changes to purple..? I'll be doing a post about it this weekend. Maybe I'll even test it out.

  15. INteresting mix of products - I did not buy one. I probably wouldn't either just because I'm picky about what I like and I have lifestyle requirements - Everything needs to be vegan!

    Btw, I found you on BlogLoveTherapy.

    Happiness,

    1. Hi! I don't think that this box is for everyone and I"m not even sure if I'll order another one when they next come out.

      You can always check out the vendors to see if they meet your lifestyle requirements before you purchase. :)

      Thanks for stopping by!
