Mission Cute Subscription Box Review – May 2015
MissionCute is a monthly subscription box of cute items for your home and wardrobe from small, artisan businesses and donates 50% of monthly net proceeds to a new charity each month.
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: MissionCute
The Cost: $39/month
The Products: a minimum of 2 items made by artisan, small-businesses
Ships to: US
Every Mission Cute box comes with an informational card, detailing that month’s chosen charity and the featured items inside.
For May, they are donating to Improving Birth. Not only was I extra excited about this charity because I’m pregnant myself (due in August!), but also because empowering women is one of my passions!
Wooster & Prince Blush Berry Bliss Pedicure Set – value: $6.50
Wooster & Prince Delhi Manicure Set – value: $4.95
I like how all the prints for these sets work together. Personally, I’ve already got mani/pedi tools I really like, but these would be a cute part of a “spa day” gift!
MissionCute Ampersand Charm Necklace – value $16
MudLOVE Grace Band Bracelet – value: $8
I can’t find this necklace in MissionCute’s shop, but it is included in their Mother’s Day Limited Edition Box, along with some other items from the May box. I love the simplicity of this necklace and the ampersand speaks to the grammar geek in me!
This bracelet is really cute, plus each one sold provides a week of clean water to someone in need. Looking at the MudLOVE website, I love their jewelry – their pieces are super customizable!
“Find Your Inner Goddess” Print by Stephanie Lazorchak – value: $10
SOPHi by PiggyPaint Polish in #NoFilter – full size, value: $7.99
This isn’t my favorite print that MissionCute has sent, but I have a friend who will love it by her vanity. Like most of the prints included in their boxes, this one was designed exclusively for MissionCute.
This polish is an awesome new find for me! It’s odorless, hypoallergenic, free of pretty much any unfriendly chemical you typically find in polish (free of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, Bisphenol A, ethyl acetate, and acetone), is natural, and water-based.
Here’s a swatch of the polish (one coat to make the heart). I wish I hadn’t JUST painted my nails, because I’m really excited to try this polish out. I found the formula to be really smooth and have great pigmentation – I’m quite sure you only need 2 coats for full opacity. I also love the brush! It’s a flat, oval-tipped brush which I personally prefer (Sally Hansen polishes have similar brushes).
Verdict: This was an alright MissionCute box for me, but not my favorite. I only like/will use half of the items. However, I am excited to discover this new nail polish brand so that makes me pretty happy. The value for this box adds up to $53.44 total.
