Marianella Pamper Me Box | May 2019

Hi beauty babes!! I’ve been writing on this blog for almost two years now and I’ve received quite a few e-mails from different companies and brands hoping to collaborate with me throughout that time. I’ve turned down every single offer until I received an e-mail from Jillian Fracassi of Marianella Soap Bar & Spa. She wanted to send me their recently launched Pamper Me Box all in exchange for a review here!!

You guys already know, I am obsessed with opening subscription boxes and talking about what’s in them with you… so, of course, I jumped at the opportunity!!

About The Box

Each box ships monthly and it is curated with a seasonal assortment of our newest, freshest and funnest. No two boxes will be the same, fragrances will always be mixed and the product assortment will range through out our entire collection of Body Caviars, Face Serums, Golden Body Oils, Anti-Aging Soap Bars, Hydrating Washes, Jade Rollers and more awesome surprises!

And of course if there is a new product launching soon you will get it before anyone else!

The box everything came in was pretty large. It was just a plain brown one on the outside but inside, there was magic.

All of the products were sealed up safe and tight in these golden mailer bags. The postcard on top was advertising one of their CBD products that looked super interesting but, was not included. I also got papers elegantly stickered together with their logo. One was a little letter from the owner and the other was product information and prices. Both were simply typed up and printed out on regular white 8×10 paper.

What Was In My Box?!

Hawaiian Black Lava Candle

Product Description

Pamper your senses with this luxurious black lacquered pineapple vessel candle in our best selling Musky Body Caviar essence with notes of Cedar and Saffron.

My First Impressions & Thoughts

*These candles will be gold on the outside instead of black if you receive it in your May box (the scents are still the same).*

This pineapple was in its own small mailer bag while everything else was packed together in the big one. I opened it first and immediately squealed. It is heavy, sturdy, and of such nice quality. I LOVE that mine is black because it matches the musky, manly scent perfectly.

I currently have it lit behind me and I can faintly smell it. While sniffing the wax closely (UNLIT) it was a lot stronger. I’m not ready to blow it out yet, but when I do… I wonder if the aroma will fill my entire home. I have a feeling it will.

Retail Value: $68

Hawaiian Black Lava Body Oil w/ Coconut Oil

Product Description

Due to the popularity of our Hawaiian Black Lava Body Caviar we bring you our Hawaiian Black Lava Body Oil w/ Coconut Oil in the same luxuriously musky fragrance of Cedar and Saffron. Now you can follow up your body caviar with this pure undiluted oil that can be used directly on your skin as a superior moisturizer, in the bath or in your hair.

My First Impressions & Thoughts

I was surprised that this had the exact same scent as the candle. Usually, when they are such different products, it’s hard to get them exactly the same.

The pump lets out a good amount. I was scared it would squirt out a ton of oil but, it was a nice, small droplet. One pump on the back of my hand was more than enough to cover the whole thing. The strong musky scent lingers and the oiliness doesn’t quite sink in right away. I did like how it felt on my skin though. I’ll have to try it in all the possible ways to see if I get any results.

Retail Value: $86

Midnight Youth Face Cream

Product Description

The most luxurious gel based cream with hyaluronic acid and vitamin C will nourish your skin and make you glow!

My First Impressions & Thoughts

Wow! The Midnight Youth Face Cream smells so lovely and fresh. A little goes a long way and I immediately felt my skin soften and smooth out after application. It was a little sticky at first but, that dried away almost instantly (along with the subtle scent). Also, their ink stamp on top of the lid is SO cute!!

Retail value: $86

Violet and Bergamot Hand Wash w/ Avocado Oil

Product Description

Cherished for its restorative properties, our soothing Violet and Bergamot Castile Soap Hand Wash is lovingly crafted from an abundance of exotic extracts. Mediterranean Borage Seed oil, pampering Babassu Oil and nourishing Argan Oil help create a rich moisturizing formula that both cleanses and replenishes.

My First Impressions & Thoughts

On my paper with all of the products and prices listed, this hand wash wasn’t on there but, a body wash (retailing for the same price) that didn’t make it into my box, was. I don’t mind– I like using both. πŸ™‚

I like the bottle and pump but, the soap doesn’t remind me of violets at all. It smells exactly like Johnson & Johnson baby shampoo. It hasn’t made my hands softer or anything but, I’ll use it until it’s all gone. I would honestly never pay $34 for any kind of hand soap, let alone one that isn’t unique or different in any way.

Retail Value: $34

24K Gold Eye Masks (5 Pack)

Product Description

Remove dark circles, smooth fine lines and crow’s feet with 24K Gold Eye Masks. Each pack contains 5 pairs of eye masks that deliver retinol and stimulate skin cell turnover. Known for its brightening powers, gold lightens hyperpigmentation.

My First Impressions & Thoughts

Inside the big mailer bag, I found an even smaller and thinner mailer bag that looked exactly the same but, stickered with their logo. I was ecstatic that FIVE eye masks were included.

The masks were a thick jelly texture. I LOVED how they felt and they were so pretty with their golden marble look. I had them on my face while I was typing the intro to this post and took them off in the middle of it. There was no slipping and sliding at all!

I noticed lots of sparkles right away after removal but, they disappeared after washing with water (as the directions say to do). I didn’t notice a difference to the look of my skin but, while wearing them I felt a fun, tingly sensation and afterwards, I feel plump and hydrated.

Retail Value: $24

*Free Gift* Demi-Sec Bath Bomb

Product Description

Take a nice long soak with our Demi-Sec Champagne bath bomb! Boy, they are BUBBLY! This bath bomb will give your bath a glorious lather while creating a bathing experience that will soothe your senses and deeply moisturize your skin with nourishing Shea Butter, Sel Gris, soothing Epsom Salt and Detoxifying Charcoal.

My First Impressions & Thoughts

I haven’t taken a bath in so long! I usually don’t like bombs because they’re boring to me– I need BUBBLES! So, when I read that this CHAMPAGNE (so fun, right?) themed one actually made them… I became more excited. It’s pretty hot here in Vegas at the moment though, so I’ll have to save this for the colder months when baths are more comfortable.

Retail Value: $32 (Mixed 4 Pack)


Another BIG PLUS about this brand is that ALL of their products are cruelty-free. They have a spa in New York you can go to, too– it isn’t just all online. Marianella’s monthly Pamper Me Box is $86/month. You are promised 5 items with a $200 total value. If you want, you can still get it by signing up, here, before the 15th of May.

They also have a smaller option called, The Indulge Me Box. It goes for $46/month and you’ll get 3 items at a $100 total value.

What do you guys think of the products in this box? Would you like to try any of it? Have you ever heard of Marianella before?

  2. Wow, this looks like an awesome box! I want to try everything. lol I especially love eye gel patches! I’ve never used that brand, but I buy the Earth Therapeutics gold eye gels, and I love them. They really do make a difference in brightening my under eye area. I use them 1 to 2 times a week.

    1. It really was an amazing box! I couldn’t believe they chose me to send it to lol it is so high class. πŸ˜…

      I can’t wait to see if there’s a difference after using all the eye masks! I wasn’t sure how often I should, so thank you for letting me know what you do. 1 to 2 times a week is what I’ll do now! β™‘

  3. OKAY I am sold— that Hawaiian Black Lava Candle alone I’d sign up for!! All these products look truly luxurious and wonderful. I have to bookmark this as a request for a Christmas gift (so far away, but at least closer than my bday hahah!). Thanks for sharing, girl!

  4. I’ve never heard of this box, I wonder if they’re new. I couldn’t help but gasp at those prices though! Holy shit! I’d rather be subbed than buy one product alone lol.
    Great review!

    1. Their subscription box is new but they have been a brand since 2007. πŸ™‚ I gasped at the prices too but yes, the whole box is such a good deal & totally worth it!! Everything was so natural & luxurious. ❀

  5. My friend bought that eye mask thingie a few months ago and we both tried it. It felt kinda funny while it was on, but i don’t think it actually did much at the end. My friend had a few wrinkles that looked better after, but i mostly just have circles under my eye, so i’m guessing this is not for that πŸ˜€

  6. WOW – what a luxe looking box. I love the candle – even just for decoration!! Also, definitely interested to see how the body oil ends up working out for you once you get a chance to try it out more, since the scent seems super intriguing.

    1. It was such a luxe box!! The candle is so cute. I love that we can keep it for decoration once the wax is all melted away. πŸ™‚ Maybe we can even wash it out & put small stuff in it!

      I still have to try that body oil more. The scent is a little strong for me but, I’ll def let you know how it goes. πŸ™‚
