French Box Subscription Review – October 2014
French Box is a new subscription box that sends you a box of France each month. This is only the second box so far in the subscription, but so far I think it’s delightful!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The packaging is probably the best I’ve ever seen from a subscription box. And it just makes everything feel special!

This month’s theme is “The Warmth of Provence.”
Inside the info card each item included is detailed. (There are also two items not pictured on this card that were included in the box).
The first bonus item is the little notebook!
The French Box also included three recipes for Provencal Dips.
Couleur Calisson Sweets – Value $3
Provence Epice Herbes de Provence – Value $7
I’m surprised how much Herbes de Provence you get for $7! I think this is a great addition to the box and something I will use a lot cooking this fall/winter! (I couldn’t enjoy the mini calissons because they contain gluten – but they look delicious!)
Matis Powder Brush – Value $15.50
Sothy’s Volume Mascara – Value $21
I’m always happy to get makeup brushes in subscription boxes, and this one seems to be a good quality one too. (This mascara was the other bonus item not listed on the info card. I’m not sure if everyone will get the same bonus item or it may vary).
OshiBori Green Tea Infused Towels – Value $5
These towels are actually cotton hand towels (I assumed they would be throw away paper towels). The green tea scent is wonderful too.
Durance Marseille Soap – Value $7.90
Atelier Cologne in Santal Carmin – Sample Value $3
I never like getting little perfume samples, but I do actually like this particular Atelier Cologne scent. And this fig-scented soap is made with 95% natural ingredients and is paraben-free!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $62 – I think that’s a great value for the cost, and without a doubt you can tell a lot of thought went into the curation of this box. I love all the packaging and extras like the postcard, notebook, and recipes too.
What do you think of French Box this month?
