Each box comes with a card detailing the month’s products and brands. The theme this month was “Gratitude” and the box was curated by blogger and  Mommy Mailbox co-founder, Ainsley Anderson.

Mommy Mailbox Gratitude November 2017 Necklace

Lucky Feather Shine Bright Bar Necklace – Retail Value $18.00

This delicate necklace is 14k gold dipped. The necklace is adjustable and can be worn at 16-18 inches long. I prefer to wear it short so that it hits close to the dip in my neck. I love delicate gold jewelry so this is definitely my style and my favorite item in the box this month.

Here I am modeling the delicate necklace, as well as the Cargo lipstick (with primer), featured below.

Mommy Mailbox Gratitude November 2017 Lipstick

Essential Lip Color by Cargo Cosmetics – Retail Value $22.00

I’m more of a gloss or lip balm, so lipstick is not in my comfort range. I think I might be willing to try a pinkish nude or even a berry but this color (Dubai) was more of an orangey nude and I just wasn’t feeling it with my skin tone. As for the formula, it was creamy and along with the primer (reviewed below) had amazing staying power.

Mommy Mailbox Gratitude November 2017 Primer

Lip Primer by Cargo Cosmetics – Retail Value $19.00

Primers for face, eyes or lips are not something I typically bother to use in my daily routine. However, this lip primer went on smoothly and I found it really gave the lipstick great staying power. If you’re looking to extend your lip color I highly recommend giving this primer a try.

Mommy Mailbox Gratitude November 2017 Bomb

Ocean Elemental Grateful Heart Bath Bomb – Retail Value $7.95

I love taking baths and I always enjoy seeing bath bombs in my subscriptions boxes. This bath bomb has a beautiful autumn feel from the orange color and the best citrus scent ever! It made my whole bathroom smell divine before I even unwrapped and used it. It got nice and fizzy like all bath bombs, but the scent was above and beyond most I’ve tried. I’ll have to keep these in mind for gifts in the future.

Marich Toffee Almonds – Retail Value $2.25

Chocolate, toffee and almonds, what’s not to like?! I enjoy munching on chocolate covered almonds as an afternoon pick-me-up at my desk. It is a sweet indulgence that packs a little protein too. These were sweet, creamy, crunchy and downright addictive.

Sailor Paper Company Gift Tags – Retail Value $5.00

The information card that came with the box this month said it was sending a treat kit and chalkboard gift tags. I’m not sure what the treat kit was but I only saw the beautiful 8 gift tags (two each of four different designs). These adorable tags will definitely up my wrapping game this December.

Verdict: I thought the “Gratitude” theme was fun for November. I really loved everything this month except for the lipstick (the color just wasn’t for me). I feel like Mommy Mailbox has been sending boxes that are better and better lately and I am looking forward to seeing what they pick for December. The value this month was over $74 which is well above the cost of the box ($33.95 a month and free shipping).

  1. Hi there! The treat bag kits were flat in the bottom of the box under the crinkle paper! Did you just miss it maybe?

    • I suppose anything is possible 😕
