Hammock Pack Subscription Box Review – July 2015 Info

Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.

Hammock Pack Subscription Box Review – July 2015 Soap

Shore Soap Company Salty Mariner Body Wash – Value $12

This body wash is sulfate and paraben free, and it has a very refreshing scent. (I feel like “sea salt” scents can really vary from product to product, but I like this “Salty Mariner” scent). This brand is a new discovery for me and I already want to buy more of their products. (I think I want to try all of their candle scents!)

Swedish Dream Sea Salt Soap – Value $7

I have loved the packaging of this soap for years (I think it is an evergreen item at Anthropologie), and I don’t know why I never bought it – but finally it is mine! The scent is clean too – I like it.

The Providence Granola Project Beautiful Bar – Value $2.75

Awesome info about this bar:

Providence Granola Project is owned and operated by a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit.  Our products are hand-made,  hand-packed, sold, and shipped as a vital part of a job-training program that onramps newly-arrived refugees into the job market.  All profits return directly to the project to provide additional services and training.  Your purchase makes you a partner in our work.  THANK YOU!

Shore Soap Company Mermaid Kisses Sugar Scrub (Travel Size) – Value $5?

When I first tried this scrub, I thought it was a mislabeled body balm, but then I read the label, and the first thing it says is “stir well.” Anyway – the scrub part was at the bottom of the jar, so it definitely needed a good stir! The formula is really gentle (the scrubbing particles are very fine), and it left my skin very soft and moisturized. (And not oily like some scrubs).

Hammock Pack Subscription Box Review – July 2015 Note

Parrott Design Studio Card – Value $5

I love this addition to the box – perfect for a shore-inspired destination!

Verdict: The value of this box is about $31.75. That’s what I typically expect from Hammock Pack, so I’m OK with the value. (For me, this box is more about the curation). I really like the brands and products featured this month, so I’m happy!

What do you think of the July 2015 Hammock Pack?

  1. I am not a subscriber. I like the bath items in the box.

  2. I read the same thing about every one of the boxes – “I’m from there and that’s a poor representation.” From me as well, the “Denver” box had nothing familiar to a Colorado native.

  3. i live in Rhode Island so I’m kind of bummed that this box doesn’t really capture our quirky nature or has brands more iconic to the state (like dels lemonade or autocrate coffee milk syrup).

    • I wouldn’t have known! I am going to look into your recommendations!

    • Definitely! I live in NYC now but grew up in Warren, my whole family still lives in Bristol County, and I visit all the time (was just there for the 4th) and the items are cute but this box isn’t capturing RI at all to me either. Autocrat coffee syrup would be the absolute perfect item! I still have to explain to people what coffee milk is all the time 😀 Del’s lemonade is iconic. Something seafood related, we are all about clam cakes and chowder!

      I guess this box is just all about presenting a couple local vendors and that is nice but the “escape to somewhere” theme just doesn’t shine through.
