Escape Monthly Review & Coupon Code – April 2014
Escape Monthly is a monthly vacation-in-a-box subscription. Each box comes with food, beauty items, and other souvenirs from a new destination. You also get a tourist book – so this box might help you plan your next actual vacation too!
This month’s destination – Mexico!
The Subscription Box: Escape Monthly
The Cost: $49.95 a month ($39.95 a month with coupon)
The Products: Each box is a destination-inspired monthly delivery of luxury products to help you relax, renew and escape.
Ships to: US only
Bonus Points: Each month, one lucky member will be selected at random to win a vacation to the current month’s theme destination. Escape Monthly will pay for the winner’s airfare from a major US hub and two nights of accommodations, up to $1000. (They announce the winners publicly on Facebook).
Each box comes with a fold out card detailing each item included in your box.
Ixtapa & Zihuatanejo Travel Guide – Value $17.99
Unfortunately for me this travel guide is the highest value item in the box this month. (I enjoy flipping through these guides, but personally I would prefer if the value of the book went to other items instead).
Sangria Senorial Soda – Value $2
Mundet Green Apple Soda – Value $2
I avoid artificial dyes in food and drinks, so I didn’t get to sample these, but they’ll go in the fridge!
Pacifica Mexican Cocoa Candle – Value $6
Fusion Gourmet Habanero Heat Sea Salt – Value $14.99
Normally my husband and I don’t have the same taste when it comes to candle scents – but we both love this Mexican Cocoa scent! (And I didn’t know Pacifica made candles!)
Kopali Fruit Organic Mango – Value $4.79
Ayate Fiber Exfoliation Cloth – Value $7.99
I’m pretty addicted to my Clarisonic, but if you’ve tried this exfoliation cloth and recommend it, let me know!
Bonus Mexican Candy – Value $4
Verdict: I paid $40 for this box and received about $60 worth of items. For me this wasn’t my favorite Escape Monthly box – I wish there had been a few more high value items besides the book and the salt.
What did you think of the Mexico Escape Monthly box? And what do you think of the May destination – California?
