The Wanderlust is one of those subscriptions that snuck up on me. It impressed me right from the beginning and continues to do so. I feel like this box doesn’t get the attention it deserves. It’s one of the better lifestyle subscriptions on the market.
It arrives in this amazing box, the size of a small suitcase, and it actually looks like a little suitcase, complete with straps and a handle. It really sets the tone for the box.

Fall Theme – Casablanca
With a population of almost 3.5 million people, a thriving restaurant scene, and a surf-friendly beach culture, Morocco’s most populous urban area is for the big city lover with a wanderlust heart. Spend your mornings taking in the Art Deco architecture and the history behind Casablanca’s breathtaking buildings, then rush off to hit the waves with the local surfers before dining at a hip bistro along La Corniche, the city’s bustling waterfront boulevard.
Here’s a closer look at the items we received in the Fall box….
Sphynx 3-in-1 Portable Razor ($15)
Say goodbye to hairy ankles or forgotten underarms. This convenient shaving saviour is the solution to shaving anywhere, anytime. Simply turn the centre dial to spray, moisturize and shave. Whether you’re going to the beach, gym, work, school, a first-date or traveling, toss Sphynx in your bag and live life freely on the go. 100% vegan, paraben-free and cruelty-free.
I recently discovered Sphynx, and I love the idea of it. In fact, they have their own subscription for refills, which is a genius idea.
This little portable razor is ideal for any travel bag. It’s convenient and easy to use. You simply twist the dial to choose the spray, moisturizer or razor. I brought it with us on our trip to Tofino.
Divinity LA Palm Bracelet ($20)
Let this handmade bracelet remind you to face all obstacles with a smile as bright as the sun. The perfect accessory for festivals, beach escapes and fun-filled adventures.
I’m always happy to receive beaded bracelets. I love the simplicity of them and that they are easy to throw on. They also stack nicely with other bracelets.
Pretty Woman Nail Polish ($8.99)
This beautiful champagne pink shimmer shade called “No Selfie Control” is cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulphate-free, vegan and so much more! Use this polish with the assurance that you can’t get anything better or cuter.
This is a pretty color for Fall. I’m not sure if I have received this brand before, I’m happy to see it is cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulphate-free, and vegan.
Nora Pearson Products Boudoir Pouty Lip Plumper ($24.99)
This combination of special ingredients helps to redefine, plump and minimize fine vertical lines of the lips, thus helping to maintain lip shape. Cinnamon and Peppermint Essentials Oils produce a warming and cooling sensation, resulting in a gentle irritation of the uppermost layer of the lips, producing blood flow to the area, all resulting in a fuller looking pout.
I love natural lip plumper. It intrigues me that cinnamon and peppermint can create a plumping effect, and if I am going to plump my lips, it’s definitely going to be with the help of natural ingredients.
Sun Dots Edible Sun Protection ($9)
Developed by Harvard-trained researcher, with a focus on better health and beauty this unique approach to sun protection will keep you safe in the sun all day.

I appreciate the fact that we received self tanner, I’m not really one for laying in the sun but I do like a little bit of color on my skin.

I was very, very, very excited to see both of these in the box this season. I love any sort of oil, especially those that are for the eye area (my problem area) or my hair. I have been growing my hair out for the last 2 years and I make an effort to keep it moisturized and healthy. I apply oil to it on a regular basis.

The Wanderlust Review Fall 2018 – Final Thoughts
The Wanderlust never disappoints me. If you are looking for a lifestyle subscription with great value and a ton of items, this is the one for you. The box is consistent, we always receive around 14 items in each box, and the value always far exceeds the cost. I would especially recommend this box to anyone who likes to travel. We receive a fun mixture of items each season. The only thing I am kind of missing in this season’s box is a fashion accessory and a fitness item. Other than that it’s pretty amazing.
