ToGoSpa Society Subscription Box Review – April 2015
The ToGoSpa Society is a subscription box from ToGoSpa. You may have seen some of their under eye gels in other boxes in the past couple of months (MizzFit, Bare Bliss Box, and POPSUGAR, for example). But they offer their own subscription service, as well.
ToGoSpa sent us this box for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Rather than having a theme, ToGoSpa focuses on replenishing your supply of their EYES and FACE gels, along with one Benefit. Because a lot of the content is the same each month, you don’t get a standard information card. Instead, you get a printout telling you more about the Benefit, which is a full-size, spa quality item valued at $20-50.
Wild Lime Coconut Coffee Scrub 7 oz. (FULL SIZE!) – Value $20
Replenishing Coconut EYES Gels (pack of 3 pairs) – Value $12.50
I think I am one of the few people who doesn’t like the smell of coffee, and this scrub really smells like coffee. However, it is super effective as a scrub and I like that it’s dry so there’s no water contributing to the product weight.
These Coconut EYES gels don’t have a strong coconut scent and I think they do a good job at soothing and cooling the area under my eyes (I put them in the refrigerator overnight before using). I had to readjust the position a few times, though; they slid a little bit.
Refreshing Ice Water EYES Gels (2 packs of 3 pairs each) – Value $25 ($12.50 each)
Rejuvenating Green Tea EYES Gels (2 packs of 3 pairs each) – Value $25 ($12.50 each)
When you sign up, you can choose to receive only one type of EYES gel or you can select “variety” and get a mixture. This was the variety pack. I haven’t tried the Ice Water EYES yet, but the Green Tea ones provide an effect similar to the coconut ones, although they have less of a scent).
Refreshing Collagen Gel Masks (package of 3 masks) – Value $35
These are like EYES but for your whole face. They’re slippery so this is one item you’ll need to lie down to use (in the bathtub works, though!). I find them to be quite moisturizing, as well.
Please note: The collagen, glycerin, and hyaluronic acid in these masks are from plant and/or bacterial sources. However, the masks also contain chitosan which is extracted (and purified) from a shellfish source, so they are not vegan. I reached out to ToGoSpa to confirm the ingredient sources and am pleased to report that I received a direct and informative e-mail reply the same afternoon. That was my only interaction with their customer service, but I think it’s a good sign
Verdict: I have really been into masks lately, so this was a great box for me. It has a value of $117.50 if you count full retail prices, or $110 if you count the price of the EYES based on a discount from ToGoSpa if you purchase 5 or more packs of EYES. I think it’s a pretty good value for $65.
It is a little bit daunting to think about using 15 pairs of EYES gels a month, though. If you have tried EYES gels before and love them, this is definitely an economical way to ensure a constant supply (one of the more expensive packages offers 30 pairs). If you just want to buy one package of EYES to try out before subscribing, you can do that through ToGoSpa’s online shop.
What do you think of the April 2015 ToGoSpa Society box? Are you a fan of the EYES gels?
