MakrBox Subscription Box Review – September 2014
MakrBox is a monthly artisan subscription box. Every month MakrBox sources high-quality hand-crafted goods from talented makers and sends them to you.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: MakrBox
The Cost: $29 plus $5 shipping for the Classic Box (which I’m reviewing). There is also a Minimalist box for $14, or a Maven box for $59.
The Products: Two or three maker items with WOW factor. More from MakrBox: “We define WOW factor as a mixture of sustainable production, artful craftsmanship and thoughtful design. Most importantly the goods we send must be useful in your day-to-day lifestyle and make your friends say, “wow, that’s incredible, where did you get that!” Our box is for those who appreciate design and know there is always a better alternative to things we use everyday.”
Ships to: US, and Worldwide! (Additional shipping fees for worldwide).
Each box comes with cards detailing the items included and the makers behind them.
On the flip side of each side is a brief summary of the maker’s background.
Revolution Design House Boxcar Planter – Value $22
I love this little succulent planter – and I think it goes really well with my recent Skandicrush items!
Schmidt’s Bergamot + Lime Deodorant – Value $9
This deodorant smells wonderful. (I love the citrus lime scent!). Unfortunately I’ve tried this brand before and it doesn’t work for me, so this will be swapped or donated.
Verdict: This month’s box has a value of $31 – a little less than the $34 total cost of the box. I would have liked to see the value be on par with the total cost ($29 + $5 shipping). That being said, this is definitely a box that is more about curation than value. I love the planter and I know this deodorant brand is a hit with many consumers, so in general I think this is a well-curated box. And I love my new planter!
