Mama’s Got Mail Subscription Box Review – December 2013
Mama’s Got Mail is a unique subscription box for moms that reminds you to take some time for yourself each month. In addition to the items included in the box, each mailing also includes a monthly Personal Self Check In sheet to use to do some reflecting!
Mama’s Got Mail kindly sent me this box to review.
The Subscription Box: Mama’s Got Mail
The Cost: One time box ($49), 6-month subscription ($44 a month), 12-month subscription ($39 a month)
The Products: Items in the box are a surprise each month, and also include a personal check-in worksheet, as well as a newsletter explaining the story behind the box’s contents.
Each box comes with a letter from Shannon, and a Personal Self Check In assignment. This month’s assignment is to make the time to take a bath – I think that sounds easy enough! (Shannon mentioned in her letter she picked a simple check in this month since the holidays make December a super busy month).
Large Luxury Spa Bath Pillow – Retail Value $24.95
Shannon picked this pillow because it gets the best reviews on Amazon – and it definitely seems comfortable!
Good Fortune Soap Lavender & Lemon Bath Salts – Value $8.50
100% Beeswax Candles from The Turtlewick Room – Value $6?
I love that both of these items are all natural. And lemon and lavender are two of my favorite scents, so I feel like I lucked out with this bath box!
Verdict: This box had a value of about $39, plus the self check-in assignment. I’ve found the value of these boxes to vary a lot, so I recommend trying this box if you’re looking for a nice monthly reminder to take some time for yourself, but not if you’re looking to get a great value. (Some boxes have had values above the cost of the box, but it’s just not consistent).
I really like the thought that went into this box – all the products seem to be top-quality to me.
What do you think of the December Mama’s Got Mail box?
