Escape Monthly Review & Coupon Code - March 2014 Tea

Gift of the Gab Irish Tea – Value $3.89

Hogan’s Brown Irish Soda Bread Mix – Value $8.99

I’m a little obsessed with tea lately, so these tea bags were a welcome addition to the box for me!

Escape Monthly Review & Coupon Code - March 2014 Shorbread

O’Neils Shamrock Shortbread – Value $2.79

Butler’s Milk Chocolate Truffle Bar – Value $3.99

I’m trying to cut back on sugar, but these shortbread cookies were a perfect gift to take to my grandma when I visited her last weekend!

Escape Monthly Review & Coupon Code - March 2014 Hand Cream

Human + Kind Family Remedy Cream – Value $31.49

I’m all about natural skincare products, so I was thrilled to find this cream in the box! It’s made with all natural ingredients and is supposed to help with all skincare issues from dry skin to stretchmarks. (And the packaging is beautiful too!)

Escape Monthly Review & Coupon Code - March 2014 Shamrock

Auld Sod Official Irish Shamrock Seeds – Value $3.95

Bewley’s Irish Creme Coffee – Value $2.99

Unfortunately I have the opposite of a green thumb, so I’ll be giving these seeds to someone who won’t kill them!

Escape Monthly Review & Coupon Code - March 2014 Book

Living Abroad in Ireland – Value $19.99

Sometimes Escape Monthly sends these Living Abroad guides, and other times they include a standard touring guide. I prefer the Living Abroad books because I think it gives you more of an insight into the culture in Ireland. I’ll definitely give this one a read.

Verdict: I paid $40 for this box and received nearly $80 worth of items. I think the value is great this month (even though a large portion of that comes from the Human + Kind cream).  And as always, I’m very happy with the curation – it definitely feels like a friend put together a package of her favorite things from her trip to Ireland!

What did you think of the Ireland Escape Monthly box? And what do you think of the April destination – Mexico?

  1. Oh, wow! I’m in love! I am going to buy a year!

  2. Ooh, I’ve been waffling on whether to subscribe to this box, but I might need to now that next month’s destination is Mexico!

  3. I need to sign up now for that Mexico box!

  4. This box was not too shabby. While I liked the food, I’m disappointed that the majority of the box value was tied up between the cream and the travel guide. The guide will be donated to my library, and while the cream is cool, my family doesn’t really have skin issues – knock on wood.

    I cancelled though because I have no interest in the Mexico box (lived in southern Texas a long time and been across the border before, I feel I have a pretty good grasp on it already!) If they ever do a box on another country I’m interested in though I’d consider getting a box again.

  5. I would love to subscribe to this box since I love traveling & reading more than anything (that’s why I got my BA in Anthropology!) BUT I’ll probably only get one if the destination is somewhere I’m heading to soon or have been to recently. I would have gotten the Italy box a few months ago if I had known about this box then…I went 2 summers ago & I’d do anything to go back! Maybe if the stars align the May box will be the Dominican Republic since I’m heading there this summer…

  6. My husband did a semester abroad in Ireland so we were excited about this box but it was kind of disappointing. The cream is kind of a joke because he and both of our daughters have skin issues – apparently it’s an all out Irish thing since he’s 80% Irish too – the chocolate and cookies were good, the coffee and tea seem cool. The guide is a toss up and the bread was gross. I’ve made a LOT of soda bread and that boxes stuff was no good. Definitely looking forward to the Mexico box, but if its lack luster, I’ll be canceling. The NY box was kind of a bummer for me too.

    • L.O.V.E.D. my Ireland box!! Mine was the version with the seaweed bath/soap/marmalade. I have read about the seaweed baths in Ireland for years and am more than happy to get a dried version to soak in while I pretend I’m there in a tub soaking in the real deal. I will lovingly unwrap my rose soap from the “oh-so-Irish” linen while I’m at it, throw in a slice of soda bread with whisky marmalade on the side, then cover my bum ankle in the remedy cream.

      I don’t care if I get an item or two in a box that I’m not thrilled about – that’s the reason behind these subscription services. I get an opportunity to experience things that I have not been exposed to before. Some products won’t be for me but some I will fall in love with and purchase over and over again. I have to learn about their existence and try them to know, and these subscription boxes provide that opportunity!

  7. Having just been to Ireland last summer, this box was a welcome reminder of our trip. We baked the bread last night and ate it warm out of the oven with some jam & it tasted VERY similar to the soda bread we ate in Ireland. The chocolate bar was minty & delicious. The cookies weren’t my favorite but my husband ate them. Looking forward to (hopefully) growing some shamrocks & using the lotion too!

  8. I was hoping for a regular travel guide since we hope to go there for vacation in the near future and that would have been more applicable for us…

    Otherwise I baked the bread last Sunday and it tasted kind of meh. I was going to bring it to work to share, but didn’t think it was good enough. I also really dislike the smell of the expensive cream. It’s kind of like Ben Gay… I’ve been using it on a dry patch of skin on my back and it’s helped some but I have to wash it off my hands after applying it since it stinks! Of course I enjoyed the cookies and chocolate; not tried the coffee or tea yet though.

    Looking forward to the Mexico box. Will see what the next destination is after that… I might then cancel. I was kind of excited about this box for awhile but it just feel like each month is too similar–cookies, chocolate, lotion, and then the biggest value item: the book, which is often not applicable for me or us.

  9. I did not receive the Ireland travel book, did only some of the boxes have the book ? That was one of the items I was looking forward to…

  10. I actually got a different box – I didn’t get a travelers guide or the chocolate or the tea, but I did get a soap, marmalade and a bath salt packet. Kind of disappointed about the book, even though I wouldn’t use it really it would be neat to have and it does take away a lot of the value of my box.

  11. I do love this box. I find a nice variety of things that I probably wouldn’t buy but I do enjoy them when they arrive. And until I get to visit some of these places this will help me feel like I’m there.

  12. While I enjoy this box, I do think it was a bit food heavy this month. I’m interested in other things beyond just regional treats. I am looking forward to Mexico and seeing what they have selected. Each month I consider cancelling because I do feel it is a bit on the pricey side, but I also am intrigued by each local they’ve announced. I really hope they do something very exotic soon.

  13. Awesome box and appropriate for this month or any other month especially if your Irish. A tinge of Irish not much in me, I guess that’s why I am always attracted to any thing or any taste of the Irish!
