Escape Monthly Subscription Box Review – Feb 2014
Escape Monthly is a monthly vacation-in-a-box subscription. Each box comes with food, beauty items, and other souvenirs from a new destination. You also get a tourist book – so this box might help you plan your next actual vacation too!
(Plus one subscriber each month wins a vacation to the featured destination – I hope a My Subscription Addiction reader wins this soon!)
The Subscription Box: Escape Monthly
The Cost: $49.95 a month ($39.95 a month with coupon)
COUPON: Use coupon code YOURESCAPE to save $10 off every month for the life of your subscription.
The Products: Each box is a destination-inspired monthly delivery of luxury products to help you relax, renew and escape.
Ships to: US only
Bonus Points: Each month, one lucky member will be selected at random to win a vacation to the current month’s theme destination. Escape Monthly will pay for the winner’s airfare from a major US hub and two nights of accommodations, up to $1000. (They announce the winners publicly on Facebook).
Each box comes with a fold out card detailing each item included in your box.
Moon New York City Metro Guide – Value $14.99
I like that this book is a little slimmer and easier to take with you than past travel guides. And I think we might actually use this book for an NYC trip soon!
Sundaes Best Hot Fudge Sauce – Value $6.50
Better Brittle West African Style Peanut Brittle – Value $4.75
This peanut brittle is made with only peanuts, evaporated cane juice and salt – I think that’s as healthy as peanut brittle gets!
New York Taxi Treats Cookies – Value $2.99
This maple peanut butter is really good – and I love that it’s organic!
Brooklyn Studio Travel Tin Candle – Value $9
Flint Creek Good Skin Blend Soap – Value $3
I think this candle is my favorite discovery in the box. It’s made with soy wax and essential oils, so it’s eco-friendly, and the scent is fantastic. I’m adding a ton of these candles to my shopping wish list. I can’t wait to try more scents!
Kanpekies Peckigram Cookies – Value $8
This is a “Peckigram” – for $8 they send this box of 4 individually wrapped cookies to your recipient including a note from you. (I’ll be gifting these!)
Verdict: I’m always impressed by the curation of Escape Monthly boxes – I like that they include lots of natural and organic brands that are new to me! This month’s box featured a lot of sweet items which I will likely end up sharing with others, but I really like everything I’ve sampled so far. I paid $39.95 for this box and received about $54 worth of products. I’m happy with the value, but I hope that next month’s box has an even higher value!
What did you think of the New York box? And what do you think of the March destination – Ireland?
