MOMMY MAILBOX MAY 2016 - BOX

Mommy Mailbox is a monthly subscription box for mothers, though I think it’s a great box for women in general.

Every month, they send a box filled with gifts and items curated to uplift moms. (Although, I think these boxes are generally well-curated for any woman!)

My Subscription Addiction pays for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Quin Butterscotch Old Fashion Candy – 12 pieces/2.4 oz, value: $5

These candies taste like butterscotch, vanilla bean, and a little sea salt. They’re really good, actually! I’m not usually a big hard candy fan, but I do like these.

Hand Lettered Design Thank You Cards – value: $4?

These are sweet and definitely handy for Mother’s Day (or any time, honestly), but I just can’t get past how low quality they seem. The design and paper is fine, but you could totally see the pixels in the lettering. Maybe it’s just me, but I personally am very put off by that in what’s supposed to be a professional design.

It’s a little hard to tell here, but you can see it looks pixel-y around the edges of the letters. Basically, if the letters look blurry to you, it’s because the image they used when creating the card was too low a resolution.

Here’s the back label of the candies and what they looked like! I thought they looked cool.

Briogeo Blossom And Bloom Blow Dry Spray – 5 oz, value: $20

I am really excited about this! This blow dry spray is supposed to add volume and texture to fine, limp, lifeless hair – which pretty much describes mine… It’s not easy to get it to do anything. This smells good and has good reviews so I’m looking forward to trying this!

Dip Beauty Nail Lacquer in Escape to Santorini – value: $10

This nail polish brand is 5-free and earth-conscious. Their formula is supposed to be high-shine and long-lasting. This looked white to me in the bottle, but their website makes it look like it’s supposed to be more of a pale taupe. Now I really want to use this polish – hopefully it dries darker than it looks.

Crystal Necklace (Mommy Mailbox Exclusive) – value: $22?

This gold chain is a very neutral gold – meaning I’ll wear this! (I tend to stay away from the very bright/yellow-toned golds). Plus this is pretty and bling-y without being super statement.

Here’s a better look at the detail of the necklace.

Verdict: Again, I’m very happy with this Mommy Mailbox! Even though I had an issue with the cards, everything else is exciting to me. I know it says “mommy” in the name, but it’s a great box for women in general. I estimate the total box value to be about $61! That’s a win for me.

  1. I agree, maybe change the name to something like Pamperbox (oh wait, that sounds like diapers, lol). It doesn’t seem mommy-centric at all to me.

    That Quin candy is making the rounds of sub boxes. I got some fruit chews in my Orange Glad box this month and they were delicious! I believe they were also in Treatsie. Good stuff!

  2. Each month they choose mom’s to curate the box, the name makes total sense.

  3. I wish they would change the name of the box. I am sure they would get more sales. Either that or put mommy specific items in the box. Toys for kids, items that say mom.

  4. I think the name of the box is unfortunate, and I believe the box would be appealing to a larger audience if it were called something else. I agree that this is a box that is good for women in general, not just moms, but they’ve kind of painted themselves into a corner with the name.
