Each box comes with an illustrated oversized postcard.
And a fold out card detailing the items included.
Headband – Value $9 (?)
I like this headband – it’s a basic black braid, and not too tight on my head. I think the retail value listed on the card is a little high though.
The headband also came with a tutorial on how to do a french hairstyle with it:
French Factory Delicacies – Value $6
FrenchBox Christmas Tree Ornament – Value $6
These french sweets include: almond biscuits, anise biscuits, calissons, and sesame seed nougats. No ingredients were included, so I’m just guessing I can’t eat any of it.
I think it is cute that they included a branded ornament, and it goes well with our tree which is mostly gold ornaments. (This is a plastic ornament).
L’Atelier Du Maquillage Eyebrow Maintenance Kit – Value $44
This kit is my favorite part of the box~ It has tweezers, eyebrow gel, an eyebrow brush, eyebrow stencils, plush two shades of eyebrow powder and a brush to apply them. I unfortunately received the blond shade which is a little too light for my brows, but everything else in the kit works great for me.
Mauboussin Perfume – Value $1
Les Notes de Lanvin Body Lotion – Value $24
While I’m never too excited about perfume samples, I love that this lotion is full sized. It’s paraben, phthalate, and artiifical dye free, and a good lightweight consistency. (Based on the info card, I’m guessing their will be a variety of scents sent to subscribers).
Verdict: Based on the retail values, this box has a value of about $90 – great for a $24 box. I will use almost all if the items, so I’m happy. What did you think of French Box this month?
