Spiritú is a quarterly subscription box that offers a specially curated combination of beauty, lifestyle, and artisanal products.

You can expect to receive a mix of well-known brands, as well as products created by entrepreneurs and artisanal products sourced from Latin America. Each season’s box will feature the designs of a Latina artist, and for each box sold, Spiritú gives back to financially support Latina entrepreneurs, creators, and community organizations.

Let’s see what’s in the Winter 2018 Spiritú box!
Everything was shipped in a pretty pink box with the Spiritú logo in the center.
A peek inside!
An insert card revealed the artist behind this quarter’s box and let subscribers know that the total retail value of everything inside was over $150.
A folded info sheet listed all of the items in the Winter 2018 box, along with photos, brief descriptions, and retail values for each one.
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this subscription, but I definitely wasn’t expecting a $68 bottle of fragrance from Michael Kors! 😉 Needless to say, this item alone covers the entire cost of this quarter’s box (and then-some). According to their website, Sparkling Blush is “an oriental floral, woodsy fragrance that reflects brilliance and beauty. A lustrous burst of pink pepper and rose petals combine with rich vanilla and lychee, while sandalwood delivers a sultry finish.”
This mini lip color from Bobbi Brown in Red Velvet delivers a bold, vibrant shade of red while hydrating your lips — keeping them moisturized & conditioned even after removal. The formula is free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates/sulfites, and is both gluten-free & vegan-friendly.
A clinically proven, dermatologist-tested eye treatment that’s specially formulated with Vitamin B3 and three varieties of seaweed to naturally detoxify, restore, and protect the delicate skin beneath the eyes. Used daily (morning & night), it will help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful, refreshed look. The formula is both vegan-friendly and gluten-free. 🙂
Formulated for all hair types, this lightweight hair spray has superfine micro mist technology that reduces frizz for up to 24 hours. It also gives you a flexible hold with a natural, touchable finish.
This triple milled bar soap is designed to cleanse the skin while maintaining it’s natural moisture. It has a light coconut & fig scent and is both dye and paraben-free. Two 4-ounce bars were included.
Hand soap is one of those practical items that I always enjoy receiving in subscription boxes. Like the bar soap above, this is also moisturizing and free of both dye & parabens. It’s also alcohol-free and formulated with just 10 ingredients.
Exercise Resistance Band + Workout by @_SaltyCurls ($5)
Spiritú partnered with Puerto Rican influencer/fitness buff Gabriela Short to bring you this #GetThatBooty resistance band and workout guide. Practice these moves for a more bodacious backside. 😉
Custom Spiritú PopSockets Grip ($10)
These phone grips are everywhere and I’ve yet to try using one. I guess now I have no reason not to? This one is custom made for Spiritú and it’s accordion-style stem can serve as a grip, phone stand, or headphone wrap.
Handmade Colombian Macramé Bracelet ($10)
This handmade macramé bracelet — or manilla — was crafted by local artisans in Mendellin, Colombia. They’re woven using the same technique as ancestral tribes such as the Wayuu and come in an array of styles & colors.
Also included in the box were a few promotional fliers and money-saving coupons.
I wasn’t completely sure just what to expect from my first Spiritú box experience, but I was pleasantly surprised. As promised, there was a nice mix of both well-known brands and smaller, lesser known companies. My personal favorite items were the Seaweed Bath Co. Eye Treatment, Softsoap Hand Soap, and the Michael Kors Parfum Spray. The total retail value of this quarter’s box was just over $150! 😀 — Remember, for a limited time, you can save 20% on your first box with coupon code ROSEBUDS!
