French Box Subscription Review – September 2014
Finally – the first French Box has arrived! (I think this is one of the most anticipated subscription box launches this year!)
I took a lot of unboxing photos because the packaging is just gorgeous!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: French Box
The Cost: $24 a month (First box special – $14!)
The Products: Each box contains 5 products from French brands: fashion, cosmetics, gourmet and others surprises! FrenchBox is the best way to discover or share the latest products from France.
Ships to: US only.
Delivered via: USPS
This month is grape harvesting season in France, and they included a wine inspired recipe:
Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.
The box also came with this cute postcard.
Now on to the actual items!
Sothys Lip Pencil in #3 Naturel – FULL SIZE! Value $16
This is the one item not listed on the card, so I’m guessing it may vary box-to-box.
Sothys Hydra-Glide Liptsick in #20 Brun chaud – FULL SIZE! Value $25
Caudalie Makeup Remover Cleansing Water – 30 ml Value $4
This lipstick is a little on the dark side (and orange side) for me, but I’ll definitely use the makeup remover.
BuddyFruits Fruit Bites – Value $1.50
Missiu Eiffel Tower Bracelet – Value $12
I get way too excited about gummies made with natural ingredients – these were gone in a minute!
Here’s a better look at the bracelet:
This is the only item in the box that doesn’t feel Paris chic to me.
Whispering Angel Wine Bag – Value $15
I love this wine tote! Now if only I could order Whispering Angel wine online!
Verdict: I paid $17 for this box (I bought a year subscription at the discount they were offering upfront). I received over $70 worth of items – a great value for a first box! I was pretty nervous about buying a full year subscription without seeing a box first, but now I can relax! Plus the packaging of this box is so fantastic – it feels like opening a gift.
What do you think of the first French Box? Did you get different variations than my box?
