Hitha On The Go Quarterly Subscription Box Review #HGQ04
I’ve had a few readers reccomend the Hitha On To Go Quarterly box, so I had to try it out!.
If you aren’t familiar with Hitha, here is her Quarterly mini-bio:
A recovering overpacker and seasoned world traveler, Hitha teaches women how to travel in style with only a carry-on. Each box features must-pack items and a guide to a packing problem area.
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: Hitha on the Go for Quarterly
The Cost: $50 a box
The Products: Travel and packing essentials.
Ships to: US and Worldwide. (Shipping costs apply for international customers)
Check out all of my Hitha on the Go Quarterly box reviews!
Each Quarterly box comes with a letter from the curator detailing the items included and why they were selected. The theme for this box is about packing toiletries. (The letter also included a 20% off coupon code to 3floz.com)
Flight001 F1 X-Ray Quart Bag – Value $14
I’m pretty excited about this toiletry travel bag. It is TSA approved, and plastic so I don’t have to worry about anything spilling on the lining and ruining the bag. When my husband and I fly (which isn’t that often) I find myself scrambling to try to fit all my liquid under 3 oz items in a zip lock bag, and usually end up giving Eric a zip lock bag full of my items I couldn’t fit in the first bag to pass off as his own. This bag has a 2-inch width and should handle everything I need to put in it!
Serge Normant Meta Revive Volumizing Dry Shampoo – 2 0z Value $15
This dry shampoo gets mixed reviews on Birchbox, but I like the other Serge Normant products I’ve sampled through subscription boxes, and Hitha says it is her all time favorite dry shampoo, so I wanted to try it asap.
I just had washed my hair, so I didn’t get the experience of trying it on hair with excess oil that needed to be absorbed, but I can tell that it adds some volume and texture.
I’ll have to try it under proper conditions to see if it is a good dry shampoo for me.
SW Basics Exfoliant – .7 oz Value $12
SW Basics Toner – 1 oz Value $12
Reusable Cotton Round – Value $.50?
I love the SW Basics line – they use natural and organic ingredients and their ingredient lists are always short and recognizable! These two samples will go straight to my new toiletry bag for my next trip! (Also, since the exfoliant is a powder that needs to be mixed with water, so it can go in a non-liquids bag).
This reusable cotton round was included to use with the toner as well. It probably needs to be washed before I use it as it has some packing paper dust on it.
In addition to the physical items included in this box, the subscription also comes with a packing guide emailed to subscribers. For this box, subscribers received a PDF of the How to Pack Toiletries guide (Value $8).
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $53. ($61 if you count the pdf guide toward the value). If you only count the retail value of the products, it is pretty much break-even with the cost of the box, so I’d keep that mind if you are thinking of subscribing. This box is more about getting a curated travel guide with products each quarter – but not about getting a high-value box. That being said, I think I’ll use everything Hitha selected.
