Winter 2022 - The Jilly Box Subscription Unboxing

I'm a big fan of Jillian Harris, so when she announced that she was starting a subscription box, I was so excited! The box started with the Winter 2019 box and sadly, I was not one of the lucky originals who won a subscription spot, so I sign up every season and hope to get picked for a lottery spot! 

Winter 2022 - The Jilly Box Subscription Unboxing
I purchased this box on my own

The Jilly Box is a quarterly seasonal subscription box - the products within the box include some of Jillian’s (and Team Jilly’s!) favourite items (and brands) from home decor, fashion, bath and beauty, health and wellness, accessories perfect for each season. Some of the items included will be custom designed exclusively for the Jilly Box. The Jilly Box really focuses on including products from small, local businesses while being ethically sourced and inclusive. They also focus on reducing plastic waste and packaging - the big boxes can be turned inside out and reused! Also, they try to include Canadian, woman owned brands, as well as Bipoc and LGBTQ owned brands as well. 

The Jilly Box is $199 CAN quarterly + taxes and includes free shipping to Canada and the U.S. And, while this is on the pricier end for a subscription box, it will contain at least $400 worth of products each season! The box is shipped out prior to the start of each season - so the Winter box shipped in mid-November.

The box always includes a little booklet that includes information about each product, recipes, interviews with makers and more! Here is a closer look at all the products in the Winter 2022 Jilly Box:

Winter 2022 - The Jilly Box Subscription Unboxing

Fawn Design for the Jilly Box - Gold Foldover Clutch ~ $60.00 CAN. Made of premium gold metallic faux leather, this clutch features a top zipper and has a gorgeous foldover design with a magnet closure. Not to mention, this Gold Foldover Clutch will be sure to elevate any outfit, day or night! The size is 12" L x 1.5" W x 11" H making it big enough to fit all of your essentials such as wallet, keys, phone, make-up, you name it! The roomy interior is lined with nylon and also has a zipper pocket! 

I absolutely love the Fawn backpack I got in the Jilly Box - one of my most used items I've gotten in the box, so this is a lovely way to spruce up a holiday outift! The magnet foldover is strong and I love the size - truly, there it sucks when you can't fit everything in your bag but still want to carry a cute bag! I love this! 

Paris Jewellers for the Jilly Box - Jilly's Mini Heart Diamond Ring in Yellow Gold ~ $235.00 CAN. Introducing the first piece of fine jewelry to be inside The Jilly Box, the Jilly Diamond Mini-Heart Ring! Crafted in solid 10kt gold! I had a blast co-designing this delicate and dainty hand-polished ring with Paris Jewellers, a Canadian-Vietnamese, female owned by two sisters! It features a genuine, ethically sourced round single diamond (total carat weight .01 ct). Available in sizes 5-8 and in both yellow or white gold, these rings are perfect if you love stacking your rings or wearing them above your knuckle! 

I picked this up in a size 7 ring in yellow gold - it fits my pinky and ring finger and it's so lovely! It is really delicate and dainty but pretty, love that it is well crafted in a little heart shape and does include a diamond, to feel like an extra special gift to yourself to receive this in a subscription! I love this so much!

Vivier C E Peptides ~ $196.00 CAN. CE Peptides is Vivier's best-selling product (and with GOOD reason!) This highly stable form of pharmaceutical grade serum contains 10% vitamin C, 2% vitamin E, and a combination of proprietary peptides to give your skin the soft glow it deserves. Made right here in Canada! Place 2-3 drops from the 30 ml glass bottle in the palm of your hand and use your fingertips to apply a thin layer to your face, neck, chest and back of hands as desired, once or twice daily. Your skin will thank you for it!

I use a vitamin C serum every day in the morning and my skin loves it. I've had some difficulty with finding a formula that works for me, so I do have one I enjoy! But, this is a pharmaceutical grade product and it sounds a stable formula, so I will use this after I finish up the product I'm currently using! 

Evalina Beauty for the Jilly Box Pout Lipstick in Pink Champagne & Orchard Cherry ~ $72.00 CAN. When co-creating these two shades of creamy matte lipstick with Evalina Beauty. I wanted colours that could easily be worn everyday or elevated for a glamorous look and I think we achieved just that! Available as a set of two, the Orchard Cherry (named after the beautiful Okanagan!) and Pink Champagne (for my love of bright lipsticks and champagne!). These lipsticks are non-toxic, paraben-free, cruelty-free, and contain squalane of vegetable origin that helps keep your lips nourished ALL day long. Designed in Canada, manufactured in Italy! 

I do like finding new Canadian beauty brands and I love that the custom created these shades for this box. The only interesting thing is that this lipstick isn't something that is established as a formula on the website from the brand, but maybe it will be their way of introducing the formula. It is a nice creamy bullet lipstick - the tube is lovely, it has a strong magnetic closure and it seems really nice!

JVN Complete Nourishing Hair Oil Shine Drops ~ $30.00 CAN. The Complete Nourishing Shine Drops from JVN have been a GAME CHANGER in my hair care routine, and a mist-have when I'm getting ready for a night on the town! This 50 ml bottle of silicone-free, vegan, and weightless hair oil instantly reduces frizz by 96% while hydrating, protecting against damage, and leaving a high-shine finish. Not to mention, I absolutely LOVE the refreshing scent of sparkling grapefruit and tangerine infused with florals, soft violet and sweet honey notes! 

I love that this was included - I think you guys know that I love this product already! It's a game changer for me too and I included it in my August 2022 Beauty Favourites! I just apply a couple of drops to my ends and it makes my hair look super healthy and it smells amazing! I love these drops! 

Basd Body Care Invigorating Mint Body Lotion ~ $16.99 CAN. Creating the perfect at-home spa experience is easy with this moisture-rich, non-greasy, 240 ml body lotion from Canadian brand, body care! Made with a blend of organic moisturizers such as peppermint, aloe vera juice, and sunflower seed oil; this combination provides long-lasting hydration for soft and nourished skin. Not to mention, I love basd's 'no BS' attitude to beauty with their organic, vegan, and cruelty-free line of products! 

I love the idea of a mint body lotion - it feels very spa like and will be great for a pick me up scent in the morning. I haven't tried basd body products, so I'm excited to try this. It's a huge bottle, so it will last a while! 

The Cross Decor & Design for The Jilly Box - The Sparkle Coupes ~ $30.00 CAN. If you know me, you may know just how much I love a delicious cocktail in a pretty glass! That' why I just had to include this set of 2 Sparkle Coupes from The Cross Decor & Design in time for all of your holiday parties! Whether you are raising a glass with a crowd or toasting with your loved one on date night, these hand-blown glass Coupes are perfect for any occasion. Each coupe hold 8 oz, stands at 7" tall and is dishwasher safe!

These are gorgeous drink glasses - this is a set of two and I can't wait to use the. I've been trying to learn how to make more cocktails, so these are the perfect inspiration to get started! I love the design of these - they are dainty and beautiful! Great item to include! 

Kikkerland Design Silver String Lights ~ $13.00 CAN. The different ways to style these Silver String Lights are truly endless! Some of my favourite ways to style them are on my dining room table intertwined with a centrepiece and candles, on a bookshelf, or even placed on top of my bed frame. The lights are 6 feet long (1.8 meters) and made of flexible thin copper wire that contains 27 super bright warm white LED lights! They also feature a 6 hour timer when on, 18 hours when off and require 2AA batteries. Recommended for indoor use only.

I have actually wanted fairy lights before - I haven't had any, so a holiday box is prefect to get them in. I like that these are on a timer too. These are pretty and I think I will start with them on my holiday mantle and then find a good spot in the house for them after! 

Overall, I love this season's box - it's perfect for holiday and full of products I will use and love (I'm glad because the Fall box was just okay for me!) While the box is pretty indulgent at $200 a quarter, it did come with a value of $651! There were some really amazing, high value products included like the ring, face oil and clutch, but I also love the glasses and lipsticks and hair oil too! 

Have you tried this subscription box yet?!
