The info card comes taped on the inside and lists the items in the box.
OGGI Stainless Steel Bottle – $14.98
Water bottles are all-around useful and great for a student’s well being. This one features a double wall, vacuum seal, and stainless steel liner. The twist-on cap has a silicone gasket to prevent leaking. I love the vibrant blue color and sleek shape!
Cord Clips – $10?
These are neat! The bottoms are adhesive so you can stick the cord clips to your desk. This would be great for organizing small cables or earbuds. I couldn’t find this exact product online but estimated the price based on similar cord clips like this one.
JAFRA Double Nature Crazy Fragrance 1.7 oz – $22
JAFRA is a new brand for me. This is an eau de toilette perfume that has fruity and light floral notes. I’m pleasantly surprised by how much I like it! It’s very fresh and light and exudes youth. I will say, though, that sending a full-size perfume is a risk for any box. Since this is the most expensive item, it can make or break the box.
Closer look at the perfume. I like the little horns on the cap.
The KIND bar arrived slightly melted but tasted fine! The almond mint combo is a pretty cool flavor. I’m not the biggest fan of dark chocolate but know a lot of people who would appreciate this in college.
Also included in the box is a 10% coupon to SKICKS.
Verdict: This is the first Me To You Box and I think they have the right idea. Water bottles are a must-have for any type of student. Plus, the OGGI one is great quality. However, perfumes can be highly personal, and since the JAFRA fragrance is the highest value item in the box it is a gamble for subscribers. I happen to really like the perfume so overall the box is a hit! The total retail value is around $48.48. It’s above the cost of subscription, but I should note that the perfume accounts for almost half the value. I think Me To You Box can tweak their curation a little more but this is not bad for a first box. I’m interested in seeing what they offer in future months.
