Covet Crate Subscription Box Review + Coupon – April 2016
Covet Crate is a new subscription box for professional women.
There are two versions of this box, and this review is of the $84.95 Lady Boss box. (Since this box shipped, the cost has now increased to $94.95 a month, and this box now ships every other month.)
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Keep Track of Your Subscriptions: Add this box to your wishlist or want list!
This box comes with an info booklet that is a mix of tips, profiles, and info on the items included in your box. In the first box, they sent out a full magazine, but this is a much more condensed version (10 pages).
Kate Spade Glass Water Bottle – Value $30 (subscribers received varied patterns/colors)
This bottle is BPA and phthalate free. The bottle itself is glass, and it has an outer silicone sleeve. While I have plenty of water bottles thanks so subscription boxes, it’s almost impossible not to get excited about a Kate Spade item in a box!
And the color goes with the next item:
RuMe All Tote – Value $16.95
This tote is pretty roomy, and I really appreciate the design. The top opening completely zips closed, it has outer water bottle pockets, and it easily folds into a zip-up pouch:
And most importantly – it is machine washable!
Hustle Pocket Jotter Notebook – Value $5?
This notebook is unlined and a good desk basic!
Mai Couture Ultra Slim Mirror – Value $8
Mai Couture Leatherette Wallet – Value $15
Here are both items opened up:
Both of these are very useful. I’ve sampled Mai Couture blotting and blush papers before, and had the unfortunate experience of eventually finding them crushed at the bottom of my purse, so this wallet will be great and it doesn’t add much bulk.
And here are the blotting papers to go in the wallet:
Mai Couture Vitamin C + E Blotting Papier – Value $12
Here are the sheets inside:
These work really well – they absorb oil without messing up your makeup.
Miss Violet Lace Beach Hair Perfume – Value $12
When I first saw this I have to admit I wasn’t too excited – I thought it was sea salt spray. (I have a lot of that thanks to subscription boxes, and it usually doesn’t work for my hair which is naturally wavy/curly.) But! This is hair perfume! That is all organic! And smells like coconuts! I love it. (They make lots of other scents too – like sugar cookie!)
Miss Violet Lace Mini Dry Shampoo – Value $4
I liked this dry shampoo powder – I just wish it had an inner cap that allowed you to sprinkle it on to your hair evenly. (It has a subtle chocolate scent, too.)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $103. I think that is OK for an $85 box. I hope that the value increases now that they’ve upped the price to $95 a box, though. I like and will use everything included. My favorite discovery is the Violet Lace brand – I will definitely be purchasing from their etsy shop soon!
I’m not sure this box has the same feel as their debut box. I felt that one was more special and more profession focused than this box. That being said, I imagine they have to mix it up each box – there’s only so many planners, books, etc you need every year.
What do you think of the April Covet Crate box?
