Mommy Mailbox Subscription Box Review – April 2015
Mommy Mailbox is a monthly subscription box for mothers. Every month, they send a box filled with gifts and items curated to uplift moms.
I’m pregnant and due in August, so I’m excited to review some mom-related boxes! This April box is sold out, but the May box is available for purchase.
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: Mommy Mailbox
The Cost: $33.95/monthly, $30.95/month with 3-month subscription, $29.95/month with a 6-month subscription, and $28.95/month with a 12-month subscription.
The Products: Each box contains 4-6 surprise gifts that change each month.
Ships to: US
Each box comes with a card describing the theme/focus for each month. I know being a mom is amazingly great and amazingly difficult, but I love the way this month’s curator described her first months of motherhood: “rough and sweet and hard and perfect.” This month, they’re encouraging moms to slow down and savor every day, both the good and the hard moments.
“Love More” Print – value: $22
Blueberry Hair Accessories Hair Twists – value: $3.50
I love getting prints in subscription boxes – having pretty things displayed on walls makes me feel at home. I can’t find this specific print on Grace Line Art’s website, but the other 8×10 prints sell for $22. This reminder is really important, and I’m looking forward to having this when the baby comes.
(I couldn’t find this exact trio of hair ties online, so I looked at the prices for other 3-packs to find the value.) These hair ties are very pretty pastel colors! However, this kind of hair tie doesn’t tend to stay well in my fine hair, so these will be swapped or passed along to a friend.
Urban Oreganics Foot Soak – 2 oz?, value: $4.50
Illume Amber Dunes Demi Vanity Tin – 3.17 oz, value: $10
This foot soak isn’t listed in Urban Oreganics’ Etsy shop, so I estimated the value from a different body soak. The ingredients are dead sea salt, fleur de sel, kaolin clay, gluten-free oats, and chamomile tea blend. Whether I end up using this to relieve sore feet or just for a bit of pampering, I’m looking forward to trying it out!
The design of this candle is amazing! I love the tin case and the pattern on the inside. Also, it smells really good. This scent is described as citrus blossoms and crisp apple, blended with ethereal oak moss, oriental clove, and a touch of patchouli.
Mint Polish in Ice Cube – .5 fl oz, value: $12
Portland’s Woodblock Chocolate 70% Dark Chocolate Bar – .88 oz, value: $4.50
This nail polish is 5-free, vegan, and cruelty-free. I love this color for springtime, too!
Dark chocolate is always a welcome addition to a subscription box to me! This chocolate tastes great, and the packaging is so very pretty.
Verdict: Overall, I really enjoyed this Mommy Mailbox! The info card had a very sweet message, and even the colors and packaging of the curated items looked beautifully cohesive. Everything in the box is something I’ll use, except for the hair ties. The value of everything adds up to $56.50. I know many have commented about the high values of prints in sub boxes, but even without the value of the print, the box is above breaking even, so that’s a safe win for me.
