Here’s a closer look at the items we received in the March California Found box….

Lotus Petal Hoop Earrings by Charming Little Lotus • (retail: $40.00)

These Lotus Petal Hoop Earrings are light as air and easy to wear. Formed to resemble a single lotus petal, each piece is made with intention and hand-fabricated with recycled sterling silver.

Yes! These earrings have my name written all over them. These are absolutely perfect! I am constantly looking for a simple pair of earrings (other than studs) that are lightweight and versatile enough to wear with everything. This pair covers all my must-haves. They are exactly what I have been looking for.

3 oz. Reed Diffuser by Banter & Bliss (retail: $17.50)

All natural, high-quality fibrous rattan reeds absorb fragrance and release it into the room for a flame-free continuous scent that will last 3-4 months. Hand-poured in the USA. Phthalate-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, and scented with fragrance & essential oils.

I love to receive items like this in my subscription boxes because it’s an item I love to have in my home but rarely go out and purchase. This will be a lovely little decor item for one of the shelves in my living room and it will freshen the air at the same time.

California Pure Naturals Strengthening Shampoo & Conditioner ($9.99 each)

Say hello to great hair! Our Strengthening Shampoo utilizes sulfate-free, plant-based cleansers to gently remove impurities. Meanwhile, ginkgo biloba, chamomile and burdock root refresh and fortify hair and scalp for an invigorating experience. Your hair becomes manageable and full of shine!

Condition and fortify hair naturally! Linseed and argan oil nourish the scalp while adding luster and shine to hair. Safflower oil works to ensure smooth and beautiful hair with the added benefits of cocoa and shea butters. Pair with our Strengthening Shampoo for an unbeatable combo!

California Found gets HUGE bonus points for this item. I love to receive shampoo in my subscription boxes but it must be accompanied by the matching conditioner. Some subscription boxes will include one or the other and I definitely prefer to receive both. I love that we got the matching set and I love that they are natural and plant-based.

Fiber & Dye Greeting Cards ($4.50 each)

Fiber & Dye is a design studio that makes pretty paper stuff for brides & BFFs to celebrate those YAY! moments you can’t wait to share with your people. Creative couples, let them design custom invitations so that your wedding stationery reflects your love story. BFFs, they’ve got just the card with your weird inside joke that no one else gets. 

This is the cutest little greeting card set. The cards are cute and sassy. They will definitely put a smile on the recipients face.

Yes Cocktail Company Lavender Honey Cocktail Mixer ($15)

Organic Lavender Buds and Wildflower Honey combine for the ultimate calming cocktail!

  • Flavor Profile: Delicate floral & bright citrus notes combine with sweet wildflower honey
  • Recommended Spirit Pairings: Vodka, Gin, Champagne, Whiskey, Cider, Belgian Wit Beers

Even though I rarely drink cocktails I’m still pretty excited about this item. I have received something similar before and it was a lovely item to have in the fridge for when company would come over. I would pair it with soda from my soda maker, add a little lemon and ta-da! I look like the perfect hostess!

California Found Review March 2019 – Final Thoughts

California Found puts a smile on my face every time I open it. I love every detail of this subscription, from beginning to end it is a pleasure to unbox. This month provided me with some amazing products. Once again (same as last month) I can see myself enjoying each and every product I received. The earrings are amazing, as is the shampoo/conditioner set. The diffuser already has a place in my living room, the cocktail mixer is a great addition to my pantry and the greeting cards are adorable. I truly do love this subscription!
