Causebox Spring 2020 Subscription Review
My Causebox Spring 2020 Subscription Review is ready. What is Causebox? Causebox is a quarterly subscription program. It includes a mix of: exclusive, ethically made products from a wide range of items. They are always full-sized, and the value of the box will always be over $200. Each item is cruelty free, vegan whenever possible, and always socially conscious. Subscribing is a great way to give back to good causes while getting eco friendly products in the process.
Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Causebox
Does Causebox Have Discounts, Sales, Coupon Codes, Promotions, Etc?
Yes, Causebox is always running a promotion for $10 off. If the one listed is not working, my referral link will give you the same $10 off.
How Much is Causebox?
Annual Causebox subscriptions (4 boxes pre-paid up front with a $20 discount) are $199.80. The cost for the Seasonal Causebox subscription is $54.95 per box.
How Often Do You Receive a Causebox?
You receive one Causebox per season, so four boxes per year.
How Many Items Do You Get in Causebox?
There are 6-8 full size items in every Causebox.
Can You Pick the Items in Your Causebox?
Annual subscribers will get to select some items. This is known as Causebox Custom. Seasonal subscribers will receive a random box.
When Does Causebox Customization Open?
It usually opens about one week before the payment date, so about a week before the first going into March, June, September, and December. I go over Customization Options and Schedules.
What Is the Causebox Add-On Market?
It is a pop-up sale where you can add-on to your Seasonal Causebox. Items are deeply discounted. I go over the items available in the Causebox Market.
When Do Members Get Charged For Causebox?
Causebox Membership is charged on the day the account is activated and on the 1st of the month (when due) in March, June, September, and December for subsequent seasons.
What is the Difference Between a Causebox and a Welcome Causebox?
The Welcome Causebox is what new members who sign up in between seasons are given. It has products from past boxes. Current members can get a welcome Causebox by creating a new subscription or contacting customer service and requesting it be added to their current one. A benefit of this for annual members is customization. Creating a new seasonal account just to get the Welcome Causebox would not let you customize it, but contacting customer service and having them deduct one box credit from your annual total would.
Which is Better Causebox or FabFitFun?
I personally love and subscribe to both. A lot of people compare them, but I feel they bring different things to the table. Causebox brings ethically made products, which are usually hand-made and household or clothing items. FabFitFun has more mass market items with more overall variety. View my Causebox reviews and my FabFitFun reviews if you are trying to choose one over the other, but I really think you cannot go wrong either way.
Causebox Spring 2020 Subscription Box Overview
There are 8 full-size items, including the art print. That makes the cost of each item $6.87 (if you paid $54.95 for the box). Of course, the cost goes down for those who paid less. There is nothing overly spring themed about this box, except possibly the mist. It is a nice curation of items though.
The box I received is really cute. It has a lot of beautiful, pastel flowers. Sadly, it did not fare well during shipping, so I cannot reuse it.
Everything comes on top of white crinkle cut paper wrapped in white tissue, sealed with a sticker.
Each box comes with a magazine. It feels like recycled newspaper.
It comes with a note from the editor.
There are features for every product in the box.
It shows the options for all the items in the box and the cost to purchase the full size.
There are some deeper looks into box products, like the bandana.
I’m interested in sustainable shopping, so I appreciated these tips.
We already owned the Bentgo boxes, but I loved seeing this spread anyway.
The spread on the purse was kind of pointless, but they tried.
I have not read about the eye cream yet, but I will before I try it.
My favorite section is where we get the exclusive coupon codes.
Boxes usually ship within two weeks of your order date. After they are shipped, it can take 2-8 businessss days for them to arrive. Shipping confirmations are emailed. Members were charged on March 1st or whenever they signed up. My box shipped on March 13th and arrived on March 17th. That was 17 days from payment to delivery.
Causebox Spring 2020 Subscription Review
Only three of the seven items are stationary, but all the choice items are really close in value. Most people will come close to my box value, which is $268.99, or $278.99 if you count the $10 for the post card. You know how I feel about that though.
Causebox Customization Options Spring 2020 Box
Annual subscribers can pick one from each category if they make the selection during the customization window. Seasonal subscribers will receive one from each category at random.
Causebox Spring 2020 Customization 1
Zoe Crossbody by Pixie Mood in Black, Honey, or Gray ($75)
For the first customization, I selected the Zoe Crossbody by Pixie Mood in gray. I already have multiple black purses, but I did not have any purses in this shade of gray. While the honey is also nice, I felt the gray was more versatile.
I love the size and number of compartments on this. After moving from a large purse to a much smaller purse, it is easier to find everything. The small purse does not hold much. This medium sized purse will hold everything I kept in my larger purse, except my water bottle.
I love the design of this purse. It pulls off a classic and contemporary look at the same time. That makes it quite stylish and extremely versatile. The light color is perfect for spring or outfits that lack depth. Pleather does not usually hold up long, so I hope this purse lasts at least a few years. At least it will be easy to clean and did not harm any animals to make.
Causebox Spring 2020 Customization 2
The Stackable Bento Box from Bentgo in Blush, Sunflower, or Cloud ($29.99)
For the first customization, I selected the Stackable Bento Box from Bentgo in gray. I already own these in blue. With only boys in the house who eat away from home, I try to keep stuff they use in “boy colors.”
Even if I ever did go anywhere, I like blue and gray. I like these containers, but while we are on this picture, I will mention a pet peeve. Why do the utensils only fit in the slots upside down? It bothers my OCD.
There are two interior trays. You can remove the one with dividers out to make more room, but it comes in handy if you want to separate items between compartments. Just keep in mind, things can still shift from one compartment to the next if they are small enough.
The strap that holds everything together will slide around. If you have kids who will hold the box by the strap, just forgo using it. Trust me.
Causebox Spring 2020 Customization 3
I selected the Dime’s Super Duo Volume Mascara and Eyelash Boost Serum for the third customization. My eyelashes can use all the help they can get. They are not particularly short, but they are light and straight. Whenever I’ve used eyelash serums in the past, I’ve noticed the added length helps give them a little color and lift. Only the tips are super blonde, so the longer it takes to get to the tips, the better my lashes look. Because I already have a lash serum open, I will not try this for a while.
Causebox Spring 2020 Customization 4
I selected the Jenni Earle Wild + Free Bandana for the fourth customization. Planners are great in theory, but I’ve found that the alerts my phone sends me are much more valuable than trying to remember what I wrote down on paper. Besides, I think this bandana is really cute. It’s a little on the small side, so I found the perfect model. While it does not look as good on me, I still really like it.
Causebox Stationary Items Spring 2020 Box
Causebox Spring 2020 Item 5 (Selected by Causebox)
The Artisan Direct Set of 5 Drawstring Bags include 3 Mesh and 2 Muslin and retail for $22. These bags look pretty small, so I am not sure how much they will hold. They do seem pretty stretchy though. If I ever get back to the store, I will try them out.
Causebox Spring 2020 Item 6 (Selected by Causebox)
The AQUA AURA Reparative Eye Creme by Earth Harbor Naturals retails for $34. My under eyes get really dry, so I lov trying new eye creams. This one is relatively affordable. It would be nice to fall in love with something easy to repurchase.
Causebox Spring 2020 Item 7 (Selected by Causebox)
The Cardea Auset CALM mood mist retails for $30. Our family, minus my husband who is anti-lavender, is really into sleep sprays. This mood mist recommends you spray it on yourself or your pillow when you need to relax or get a good night’s sleep. It will definitely get used here, once we make our way through the open ones we are working on now. I recommend these type of sprays, because they are a great way to induce sleep without medication while breathing in a relaxing and intoxicating scent.
Causebox Spring 2020 Item 8 (Art Print)
The Tatiana Boyko 5″ X 7″ ART PRINT has a retail value of $10.
This is a mass-produced post card, so it is not worth more than $1.99 unless you choose to frame it.
Causebox Spring 2020 Subscription Box Value
This box has a $278.99 value, if you count the post card. I paid $49.95 plus tax (annual member). While I would never pay $10 for the post card and think it is hilarious that there is a value assigned at all, I think all the other items are wonderful. There was not an item in here that I will not keep, so my personal value is also $278.99. I cannot say I would have gone out and purchased some of these things outside of the box, but I am happy to try them now that they’re here. With the Coronavirus, the bandana will really come in handy. All the masks should go to medical staff, so I will use that if I leave the house. That brings the average box value for the year to $283.75. Depending on whether one counts this as the first or second box, they may have a different average.
Was the Spring 2020 Causebox Subscription Box Worth It?
This box is definitely worth more than the $44.95 to $54.95 people would pay for it. It gave me a moisturizer I already know I love, a chance to try a hair product that might work on my awkward mane, a beautiful hair clip to replace a similar one lost long ago, a gorgeous throw that is unlike any other I own, and another pair of gloves for my kids to lose. Overall, I think this box was a huge success. I do think the summer 2019 welcome box was the best (I’ve received), but this was a really nice one, too.

I'm Kimberly. Shopping is always more fun when I've found the best deal available, so I am always on the hunt. My father instilled that in me, and I love that I carry a piece of him. Sometimes, my husband and sons (12 and 7) let me shop for them, too. They do not use as many beauty products as I do. We can all benefit from nice products, even though their routine ends with moisturizer. That is when I can convince my 12-year-old to apply it.
