FYI – at this point in the review I would have a picture of the card included with the box, but it was missing in my box this month. (The theme is Los Angeles though).

Hammock Pack Subscription Box Review - June 2014 Chips

Beanfield’s Bean & Rice Chips in Sea Salt – Value $1.50

The Yes Bar in Macadamia Chocolate Chip – Value $3

Yay – 2 delicious food items that I can eat (AKA no dairy or gluten). These Beanfield’s chips are always good, and this Yes Bar is my favorite discovery in the box. It’s such a delicious cookie/bar, and it is made with natural and organic ingredients.

Hammock Pack Subscription Box Review - June 2014 Bath Ice Cream

ME! Bath Cosmopolitan Bath Ice Cream – Value $10

I liked the ME! Bath body scrub I received in another box a while ago, so I’m excited to give this bath soak a try – the packaging is great too! (FYI – ME! Bath products are 50% off at HauteLook now through Tuesday!)

Hammock Pack Subscription Box Review - June 2014 Nail Wrap

Museum Nails in Fruit Cocktail – Value $12.50

Sencha Naturals Green Tea Leaf Mints – Value $5

While I’m a little over nail wraps, I have to say these ones are adorable. I don’t think I could pull off the look though, so they will be swapped!

Verdict: I paid $30 for this box and received about $32 worth of items. I’m happy with the value because I never expect a high-value box from Hammock Pack – this box is more about the curation for me. Discovering The Yes Bar is the highlight of this box for me, but I think I’ll use everything besides the nail wraps so I’m pleased.

What do you think of the June Hammock Pack?

  1. my first box with them, and i am severely disappointed. i have no use for the nail decos, and i can buy snacks for much less than $30.00! i might use the bath soak, but that’s about it. not happy at all and will probably cancel now.

  2. I was extremely disappointed with this box. Previous reviews were so good that my expectations were high. Not one item in the box was special. Plus, when I think of Los Angeles, I do not think of the items they selected. Sure hope next month is better.

  3. My wife thinks this box is great! It’s a small indie box so I don’t think you can put this in the same catagory as those big companies like popsugar or birchbox in terms of value.

  4. I agree those nail wraps look a bit hard to pull off, but I think they might be really cute if you use one at a time as an accent nail! That would probably be pretty doable.

    Those mints intrigue me.

  5. This was once my favorite box. There were always great finds and new brands. I have noticed a decline in the past three month but I am hopeful they will rebound soon.

  6. You can find those bath bombs at TJMaxx or Marshalls for less than $5. I’ve never used nail wraps before, only have received them in one sub box, but I would use those ones! They are so cute!

  7. I like hammock pack, but the value is a little low… There is a reason why it’s one of the lowest subscribed boxes in the msa directory :(.

    My question is this: if you first subscribe to a box on June 14th. And the company says that they will ship immediately and then their usual date is the 1st (but the usual billing is the 10th)… When do they bill you the second time? On the July 10th AFTER they send your box?

  8. Your nail wraps match your bath icecream. I need to mention the Yes Bar to my sister who is gluten-free.

  9. I don’t think that a bath soak is worth $10. Nail wraps should be forbidden from all sub boxes. The mints I can (and have) got at Trader Joes. Based on the reviews of most of the Hammock boxes you’ve received….I think their days may be numbered. I don’t know how this box would get anyone new to sign up.

    • I agree. Was thinking about subscribing, but changed my mind – doesn’t seem worth the $30/month.

      For me, I get more out of my Qbox subscription – with a coupon, it’s under $30/month (stupid shipping charges 🙁 )

      • In fairness, QBox sends items from Japaense “100 Yen” stores (Dollar Store equivalent) and the Korean store version, shown at enormous price markups. Just something to keep in mind when considering the $30 price comparison (plus $7+ in shipping). I loved the idea of Q Box at first since I lived in both Korea and Japan for quite a few years. But after the first two months I realized I was getting vending machine and dollar store junk. But, it is stuff you don’t find unless you are there, so I suppose there is value in that.

    • 110% agreed!!
