See those maggots, they got me and then I put them in a bag of things I won't use to my mom and got her with them! I think she did the same thing to one of her friends, the maggots are going all over Georgia!


Info book.


Monster Spray (Never Sleep Again) ($7.99) - Monster Spray is a sheet and pillow spray to help you fall asleep. I love the scent of this but they mess with my asthma and gives me a really bad headache. I still sometimes spray it but not on my pillow.

OCD Hand Sanitizer (Redrum) ($3.49) - Ugh. I love the OCD Sanitizer but I just didn't like this scent. It's sweet, like too sweet. Pass.

Bar Soap (Wanna Play?) ($4.25) - Hehehe. This is more fun to leave out as the guest soap than for my personal use. I might be a 12-year-old hiding in a 26-year-old's body.


Charcoal Face Mask (Stayin' Alive) ($15.99) - Instant pass. Dry skin + charcoal mask = Sahara. 

Bath Bomb (Camp Crystal Lake) ($6.25) - I don't do bath bombs. I don't do baths. Maybe if we had a bigger tub but currently, zero use. Luckily one of my mom's friends LOVES bombs so this was instantly sent to her.

Whipped Cream (Dr. Lecter) ($5.99) - I'm not ashamed to admit that I have a collection of whipped creams. I bought some of the grab bags a few years back so I will never run out. This is the best item I've found to combat dry skin without leaving me greasy or feeling weighed down. I'll always recommend whipped cream to anyone.


Detangler (The Choice is Yours) ($4.50) - I'm not really a detangler fan. Not because there's anything wrong with them but because my hair just doesn't get tangled. I kept this bottle on my vanity for just in case, though, because it smells so good!

Dual Phase Roll-On Perfume Oil (They're Here) ($11.99) - This is a super sweet perfume oil, almost like candy...which means it's a hard pass for me. Also, I don't know how many times I'll mention but perfume oils and me don't mix. 

Muscle Rub (Head Spin) ($4.50) - As soon as I saw this, I knew it was going to give this to husband. I'm always looking for the next thing to help with his aches and pains. This is made with menthol, which is what causes the temporary relief, but anything is better than nothing.

Lip Gloss (Clowin Around) ($7.99) - This is a lovely shade but it's a typical gloss, meaning you'll get that hair-stuck-in-your-mouth look. I ended up passing it on because I'm not one for glosses in general (I do have a few but I only use them if my hair is going to be pulled back).

This box was valued at $72.94. Overall the box as a whole was a bust for me, but that's just the chance you take when you're as picky and weird as I am. The box's theme was adorable and the items definitely matched it perfectly! 

As always, let me know what you thought of this box in the comments!
