12 Society is a Men’s Lifestyle subscription box. I signed up because they offer boxes for female customers as well. So far there really haven’t been items selected specifically for their women customers besides a JewelMint $20 discount card that came in box one.

The box: 12 Society

The price: $39 plus free shipping

The products: 4 to 6 hand-picked “best of” products $125 min. value in every box picked by athletes and celebrities.

Tempo Batteryless Acoustic Amplifier for the iPhone – Value $24.99

I actually already have this product. It’s works really well too so I recommend it. $24.99 was the list price I could find on Amazon, but when I bought it I got it on sale for $3.

Call of Duty Billets – Value $26

The packaging of these headphones was pretty cool. I’m not much of a video game player though, so these go to the BF.

EA Games: Scrabble for iPhone and FIFA 12 for iPad – $1.99 and $9.99

Energy Sheets – (2 packs in Mint Boost) Value $2 Total

I do NOT recommend these energy sheets. They do not taste good at all and didn’t seem to provide any energy either.

Verdict: I’m starting to think that 12 Society isn’t for me. My BF liked the video game related stuff I got so this box didn’t go to waste, but I won’t be using any of it. I was hoping 12 Society would have products sourced specifically for their female subscribers, but considering this lifestyle box is geared toward men, that just doesn’t seem realistic given the stage they are in as a company.

One other issue, this box is supposed to have over $125 worth of product. But at most I received $70 worth of product. (On the plus side, I do have the option of returning the box – most subscription services do not give you free returns or any returns).

So we’ll see if I stick it out another month. It’s so tough for me to cancel subscription boxes because I always think the month I cancel will be the best month yet 🙂
