Unboxing: Barbara Box No. 2/2017

// PR SAMPLE // SUBSCRIPTION BOX //

I talked about the newly launched Barbara Box earlier this year and I loved the concept and the products so much and was totally convinced about this new concept of box. If you missed my first unboxing you can head over >>here<<. Today I will show you the content of the second Barbara Box, dedicated to beautiful summer moments that you can share with your best friends:

The Barbara Box ambassador is also the donor of the name, a German celebrity called Barbara Schöneberger. The box is not only advertised by her, but also she selects the products. The topic of the boxes revolve around “Girls Night” with your best friend(s)and contain food, drinks, beauty, decoration, games…so as you see the Barbara Box seems to be very versatile.

The box is not a monthly box but is released every three months and comes together with a print of the Barbara magazine, a magazine curated by Barbara Schöneberger aswell and addressing women in their 30s.

Let’s see what we have inside the summer-themed second Barbara Box:

First of all the box was super heavy and I discover quickly what was the reason behind it. There was drink included: Ramazzotti Aperitivo Rosato together with Schweppes Indian Tonic Water. Enough to make two Summer Drinks and it was really delicious and refreshening, too.

Summertime is also usually the time when we neglate our skincare, because we don’t want to put too many products on our face. Yet the box includes Tavana The Pearl High Performance Boost Day Cream to remind us that the skin still needs some pampering.

But it is not only our face we have to care about, but also our hair and body. For haircare the box comes with the new L’Oréal Botanicals Fresh Care Camelina Shampoo and Conditioning Balm. This new line contains botanical ingredients and no silicons, parabens, or dyes. Camelina oil helps to smoothen and detangle frizzy hair.

For the body we have the Rituals Cosmetics Express Your Soul Shower Oil, a limited edition that comes in a green/yellow colored bottle for extra summer vibes. The design was created by MadC. I haven’t used it yet, but oil sounds like a perfect treat for dry summer skin.

My personal highlight was a delicate lucky bracelet from iCrush which was included in the box. This Mandela bracelet is symbolizing harmony and can be used by yourself, or you can give it to a friend to celebrate your friendship.

As extra there was a Barbara magazine included and post cards with fun slogans. I personally preferred the post cards from the first box because I loved the black and white design.Last but not least a makeup pouch was included, perfect for summer time and travel season! It says “Kriegsbemalung”, which means “war paint” in English.

A total of 9 products including the magazine and the postcards. Although the first box contained more products in total, this box has a very good value. While the last box also contained some food and a game, this one focused on skincare/body/spa. I like that the content was different from the previous box and I’m still convinced that this subscription box is one of the most versatile boxes I’ve tested so far.

Barbara Box is released every three months, which makes it even more appalling in my opinion. The box retails for 29.95 €, but there are also options for a yearly or half-year order with 4 or 2 boxes, respectively. Considering the prize of the included products in the first two boxes it makes up far the retail price definitely. I’m really curious how they will continue in the future. How do you like the second Barbara Box?
