Monthly Express Subscription Box Review – August 2015
Monthly Express is a high-end luxury subscription box for women. It’s all about “ME time.”
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
They do a great job with the packaging – and I’d say that’s expected for a $129-a-month box!

Each box comes with a card detailing the items included:
BodyBliss Bamboo Cooling Gel Polish – Value $32.95
This scrub is made without any artificial colors, artificial fragrances, parabens or phthalates! It has a refreshing minty scent, and unlike some scrubs that are made with sugar, this one has scrubbing beads. It didn’t leave my skin moisturized/oily like some scrubs, but it didn’t dry it out either – and it did leave my skin feeling super soft.
This body oil is made with only natural and organic ingredients – and it even has clear quartz crystals mixed in! I like the scent and the formula – I may need to check out some of their other scents now.
Alixx Fleur de Lagoon H07 Candle – Value $30?
I couldn’t find this exact candle for sale online, but the larger size retails for $50, so I’m thinking the $30 estimate is pretty accurate.
I like the fresh water-inspired scent of this candle, and the vessel itself is gorgeous too:
(That Alixx sticker is removable).
The glass is handblown in Belguim and designed to capture air bubbles throughout.
Erbe Acqua Di Neroli Tonic Water – Value $56
(I couldn’t find this online, but it is available via the Monthly Express shop section). The ingredient is short (just Neroli distilled water and essential oils), and according to the info card, the tonic water is made with organically-grown orange blossoms. I like the scent, but I don’t get a citrus vibe from it – to me it smells more earthy.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $144. Ideally I’d like the value to be higher on a $129 box, but I am very impressed with the curation and luxe feel of this box. I like that they sourced some items you can’t buy in the US, and the BodyBliss line is a new-to-me brand I am so happy to have discovered!
