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!)

These socks are great! I love the colors and they’re very soft. I’ve loved wearing these since I opened my box!

Vasanti Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvinator – 0.7 oz, Value $5.67

This is an exfoliating cleanser with papaya, aloe, and micro-crystals. It’s been in a lot of subscription boxes and I really like it! It’s effective and gentle.

Illume Candles Pumpkin Peppercorn Demi Radiant Metal – Value $14

I love Illume Candles and they have such great packaging and design. This little precious metal tin is so pretty.

Subscribers may receive different fragrances than this, but I’m so happy I got the Pumpkin Peppercorn! It smells perfect for Fall. Notes include pink peppercorn, cinnamon bark, citrus peel, fleshy, pumpkin, wild chestnuts, bourbon, warm oak, and vanilla bean. Yum!

Chuao Chocolatiers Caramel Apple Crush – 0.39 oz, Value $0.84

This chocolate is delicious, but I already knew it would be because Chuao is one of my absolute favorite brands of chocolate.

INSPIR Beauty Pressed Eye Shadow Set (Deep Brown & Pink Beige) – Value $13 each, $26 total

These eyeshadows are full-size single shadows, in colors that are supposed to be “perfect for Fall,” but I really think they’re great everyday, anytime colors!

I don’t really like that they designed these with a shadow pan so much smaller than the packaging – it makes it look like they’re undercutting the amount of product they should have included. However, were they to scale the packaging down to “fit” the shadow tin better, the mirror would be too small to be useful, so I guess there’s some kind of a balance there.

I love these colors. They’re matte, work well together, and super versatile.

The formula applies very well and has nice pigmentation. But you can get even more intense color by applying them wet, too.

Verdict: This was such a nice Fall box from Mommy Mailbox and I know I will use everything. I always enjoy my Mommy Mailboxes; the curation is consistently really nice. The value for this box adds up to $56.50, which I’m happy with.

What do you think about the October Mommy Mailbox?

  1. Well I thought this box was really cool. Any box that puts a nice expensive candle inside it is a winner for me. I can make my own so buying them is just is a no no. I get my fix when they find their way to me sooo loving this cute box. Maybe alittle high price tag though. I also feel like they lose alot of customers just by the name and makes me feel werid getting a box when I only am a cat mom. I really liked this and loved your honest review even more….
