Escape Monthly Review - October 2013

Escape Monthly is a new vacation-in-a-box subscription service that launched a few months ago. They currently have a coupon code that saves $10 off every month for the life of your subscription, so I decided to sign up and give it a try!

Escape Monthly Review - October 2013

This month’s getaway destination is Hawaii. I’ve always wanted to vacation there, and the packaging of this box is really cute, so at this stage in the unboxing, I was already pretty excited about this box!

Each box comes with an Itinerary card detailing every item in your box, and giving you more background on your travel destination.

Moon Handbooks Big Island of Hawaii Guide – Value $17.99

Tub & Scrub Hawaiian Bath Salts – Value $10

I like that they included a guide book with this box. At first I was thinking this subscription would be an indulgent box with a destination theme, but it also can serve as vacation inspiration each month! (November’s box destination is Vermont, and we’ve been thinking about taking a trip there, so I can’t wait to see what travel tips they include in the box!)

Honey Girl Organics is a hawaiian beauty company that uses organic ingredients and Hawaiian Pupukea honey!

Alaea Hawaiian Sea Salt – Value $14.99

Seashell Lei – Value $5.99

I suppose no Hawaii themed box would be complete without a lei!

Hawaiian Host Dark Chocolate Covered Macadamia Nuts – Value $2

Tiesta Tea Maui Mango – Value $6.99

Royal Hawaiian Orchards Papaya Lime Macadamia Crunch – Value $4.15

I fell in love with Tiesta Tea after sampling it in the Bespoke Post Cafe box. I can’t wait to try this fruit-blend of tea!

Personal Paradise Coconut Lime Body Lotion – Value $2

Ostara Organics Lavender Foot Bath – Value $2

Ola Passion Fruit Organic Body Butter – Value $10

Gentle Scrub Facial Buff Pad – Value $7

I love all things coconut, so this lotion is perfect for me. It definitely smells like a vacation in a bottle!

Verdict: I paid $39.99 for this box and received about $120 worth of Hawaiian products. I’m am thrilled with the value of this box! I also love how many organic beauty products they included. Now I can’t wait for the November Vermont box to arrive!

  1. OoOOOO … I think this is next on my subscription box list!

  2. Does anyone know if the October box is still available? It looks awesome!

    • To see if any Hawaii boxes are available it’s best to go and get their phone number and call and see. They are very nice and helpful.

  3. I absolutely love the Escape boxes. So far I have received 2 – Oregon and Hawaii and I can use everything I received. What a treat. I am looking forward to Vermont in November especially since we were just there last month.

  4. Wow! Great box. And sad to say, but this looks much better than a Makana box.

  5. This is a great box! The crunch is delicious and the lotion is to die for.

    Does anyone have another use for bath salts? I am a shower only girl & keep getting bath stuff but don’t really know any bathing beauties.

    • I don’t take baths either but have a variety of bath salts from sub boxes and I use them for a foot soak. I have a giant bowl I bought from IKEA and once a week I’ll fill it up with warm water and dump in a handful of bath salts and soak my feet while watching a TV show. It’s super relaxing and makes my feet smell nice and leaves them really soft! I also use this time to use a foot scrub rather than awkwardly using one in the shower.

      • Thanks, Bea, for the great suggestion. My feet can always use some help, and it is awkward using the scrub in the shower. As the foot bath was missing from my box, this will work out well.

    • Use the bath salts as a foot soak!
