Each box comes with a card detailing the month’s products and brands. The theme this month was “Survive” and the box was curated by blogger, Tina Koral.

Cashmere Scarf – Estimated Value $75.00?

This 100% cashmere scarf is a Mommy Mailbox exclusive. The pale pink perfecting fits theme the Breast Cancer Awareness Month theme. The cashmere scarf is luxe, super soft and has fringe edging. I’m able to wear this now that the weather finally feels like autumn in New Jersey.

Olive + Piper Earrings – Retail Value $32.00

These Leah studs are 14K gold plated with titanium posts. The crystals are glass and are a neutral palette that feels feminine and festive. I can see these getting a lot of mileage.

Ad Astra Apothecary Rose Essential Oil Roller – Retail Value $15.00

This essential oil comes with a convenient roller ball applicator. There are actual rosebuds floating in the oil. Rose aromas aren’t a favorite of mine so this isn’t a big hit personally, but I enjoyed finding out about this small batch apothecary just the same.

Illume Sugared Blossom Soap – Retail Value $8.00

I’m such a huge fan of Illume. I think their packaging is top-notch and I always love their scent combos. This soap smells like sweet vanilla and jasmine flowers.

HR Poppin’ Snacks Popcorn – Retail Value $3.99

Pink popcorn certainly fits the Breast Cancer Awareness Month theme, but I have to say something about the garish colored, marshmallow flavored popcorn just turned me off. Hopefully others enjoy it!

Verdict: I thought the “Survive” theme was a fabulous idea for a women’s lifestyle box. So many friends and family members have been affected by breast cancer and it’s certainly a cause that is near and dear to my heart. I absolutely loved the scarf, earrings, and soap this month. This box felt like a special treat to unbox and was certainly my favorite Mommy Mailbox to date. The value this month was $134 with my estimation which is well above the cost of the box ($33.95 a month and free shipping).

  1. I’m not a mom and the name of the box is a turn off to me. I’ve never even looked at it until now, and am surprised to see that this box doesn’t even have anything mom related. I wonder if that just happens to be this particular box or what. Seems like they are missing out on a lot of sales from women that don’t have kids by the looks of the responses here.

  2. Not to belabor the point, but I have never subbed to the box because of the name too (not a Mom/no thank you). Nor would I sub to Single Swag (married)! lol… However I just got the Target baby box because I wanted to try the items Maybe because it was only 7.50 and I loved the items. Go figure!

  3. Wow! I wish this was the one-time box offered. So lovely and I’m not a mommy. But I want this box!!

    • They usually offer one-time boxes. Now you can but November as one-time box using code SPOOKY1.

      • buY 🙂

  4. This box sends lovely items, but they don’t seem to be ‘Mom specific.’ I think they are really limiting themselves with the name.

    • I agree! I think I have usually skipped the reviews of this box since I’m only really a “mom” to my dog. I expected this to have items more focused at parents. I might have to consider this box.

      • People have been saying that for ages. I am really not sure why the box people don’t pick up on the fact they are missing business! I am almost positive this is the same group that sells Luxor.

        • I don’t know about Luxor but they sell Terra Bella boxes for sure.

    • I agree. I’m not a mom so I’ve never clicked on this link until now. It’s a lovely box. Now I’m wondering what I might have missed out on in past boxes.

  5. Wow!!! How have I never noticed this subscription before? This box is amazing! I wish I would have seen a review in time! I looked back at old reviews and it looks consistently awesome. Really tempted to sign up for the year sub with the Halloween sale!

  6. I like the popcorn but there are some really hard to bite corn pieces. So be careful, ladies! 😉

    • I liked the popcorn too. I’m looking forward to trying the soap.

      • Yeah, I anticipate that the soap is awesome. It smells heavenly through the packaging.

  7. Is this Oct box still available?

    • According to their Instagram page, they are sold out of the October box. Sorry.
