Ophelia's Apothecary June Subscription Box Review

Today I have a monthly subscription box to show you! It is not from a polish site - are you shocked? It is from a company that I first found as a recommendation for all natural lip balm from as a friend. In addition to the lip balm (of which I own about a dozen..ooops!), Ophelia's Apothecary offers all kinds of natural scrubs, like Pumpkin Scrub in the fall which is just heavenly, lip scrub, face washes, masks, and all kinds of goodies.

Just a few months ago, they joined the subscription box craze and offer a monthly box for $15. They ship on the second Tuesday of the month, but since this is only the beginning of the program, it seems they are still working out the kinks of their shipping timetable.

Anyway, this month's box was all about summer essentials, let's take a peek!


The packaging is cute and summer and secure, all nice.  There is an included list of all the contents:


Group shot of the goodies!  Items included bug spray, eyeshadow, a soap sample, an absorbent mitt towel, a bubble ring, and earrings.


The bug spray smells really good, like lemon and summer evenings.  Unfortunately, the CT mosquitos are killers this year and I think I need something more toxic, LOL.


The earrings have a cool burnished, vintage feel, and I will definitely wear these.


There is also a little absorbent mitt, which is very soft.  It will be a good idea for me to use this to dry my face, since usually I am an angry bear and wipe my face with my regular bathroom towel.  Oops!

The eyeshadow is a muted khaki color.  It is pretty much my skin color, as you can see, so I can use this for days when I want to look polished but makeup free.

The roll on perfume is fabulous and perfect to throw in your purse.  It smells like summer flowers and is exclusive to the subscription box.


The soap sample smells amazing! I wish it was a bigger piece of soap.  I don't even want to use it, I just want to keep it.  It is the most spot on, sweet but not cloying, honeysuckle scent. Love this.


Lastly, there is a cute little bubble ring thrown in as well.


There are some cute items in here! Due to my move and finances, I won't be able to get a July box, but since my birthday is August, I may splurge again.  I also hope that the shipping is able to get back on schedule as I am personally kind of impatient and like things on schedule if there is one.

If you're interested, check out their FB page for info and for flash sales as well.
