Have you heard of the HootLoot box yet? If you love books and beauty, check out my review of their January box: Wizards and Wilderness.Hello, lovelies!

If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I ordered the January HootLoot box. If you haven’t heard of the HootLoot box, they describe themselves as part beauty box and part book box. They sell through Etsy, so you don’t have to subscribe. They also have several box options, so you don’t have to get the book, if you don’t want it. January’s theme was Wizards and Wilderness, and I couldn’t miss out on a Harry Potter box. As a giant Potthead, I had high hopes for this box, and I wasn’t disappointed. 

Initial Reaction

When I saw this box on my dining table, I almost shit my pants. I was so excited! The box was a little damaged, but the packaging was super good, and nothing inside was damaged.

Even the packaging was absolutely perfect. When I ordered this box, they had me choose a house. Of course, I picked Slytherin.

The Book

I haven’t had the chance to start this book yet, but the cover is gorgeous. It’s about the daughter of a murdered bounty hunter, and it sounds super interesting. I can’t wait to start it! They also included a coloring page, so it’s time for me to dust off my colored pencils!

The Goodies

I don’t know about you, but I have a horrible habit of reading several books simultaneously. All of these bookmarks will definitely come in handy. I’m super in love with the Snape and Trelawney ones. They’re adorable!

This Horcrux mineral eyeshadow is a really pretty gray, which will be perfect for a smoky eye. I can’t wait so use this Dark Mark temporary tattoo, but I’m saving it for the next time I cosplay as Bellatrix. I’m not a huge bath person, but on the rare occasion that I soak, I love bath salts. These green tea and bergamot bath salts smell delicious!

This Forbidden Forest candle smells AMAZING!!! When my room in finished, I’m going to keep it open on one of my shelves. My Harry Potter acceptance letter is too cute! I don’t want to open it! I’m trying to find a good place for my Quibbler button. It’s too cute to not display. I’m obsessed with this quidditch print. I need a frame for it, so I can hang it on my wall. These Slytherin robes socks are just too precious. I would wear them every day, if I could!

Overall Impression of the HootLoot Box

I was expecting 6 items at the most, including the book, and I was pleasantly surprised with 13! When they announced that The Hunger Games and Star Wars, among other fandoms, would be featured in their next box, I knew I had to order immediately. Now that I’ve seen what their boxes include, I’m even more excited! I’ll definitely buy more HootLoot boxes in the future.

  • This is awesome! I love it! I don’t wear makeup, but everything in the box is so awesome! How much are the boxes? One day if I ever get financially stable. haha. I am definitely signing up for some boxes. I would probably go broke, there are so many I would like to sign up for.

    • They actually have 3 different options at $15, $22, and $29.99 per box. It’s not a subscription, so you can just order the boxes you want. They’re taking a few months off for personal reasons, but they should hopefully be back in June. I definitely recommend signing up for their newsletter. That’s how they announce when the boxes go on sale, and they send out a coupon code.

      • Oh duh you mentioned they are not a subscription! I am going to have to check them out!

        • LOL! I (obviously) totally recommend them. They also have a super cute Facebook group.
