MakrBox Subscription Box Review – September 2014 Items

The Subscription Box: MakrBox

The Cost: $29 plus $5 shipping for the Classic Box (which I’m reviewing). There is also a Minimalist box for $14, or a Maven box for $59.

The Products: Two or three maker items with WOW factor. More from MakrBox: “We define WOW factor as a mixture of sustainable production, artful craftsmanship and thoughtful design. Most importantly the goods we send must be useful in your day-to-day lifestyle and make your friends say, “wow, that’s incredible, where did you get that!” Our box is for those who appreciate design and know there is always a better alternative to things we use everyday.”

Ships to: US, and Worldwide! (Additional shipping fees for worldwide).

Revolution Design House Boxcar Planter – Value $22

MakrBox Subscription Box Review – September 2014 Parts

I love this little succulent planter – and I think it goes really well with my recent Skandicrush items!

MakrBox Subscription Box Review – September 2014 Lime

Schmidt’s Bergamot + Lime Deodorant – Value $9

This deodorant smells wonderful. (I love the citrus lime scent!). Unfortunately I’ve tried this brand before and it doesn’t work for me, so this will be swapped or donated.

Verdict: This month’s box has a value of $31 – a little less than the $34 total cost of the box. I would have liked to see the value be on par with the total cost ($29 + $5 shipping). That being said, this is definitely a box that is more about curation than value. I love the planter and I know this deodorant brand is a hit with many consumers, so in general I think this is a well-curated box. And I love my new planter!

  1. Those are both things I would love to have! I can’t find the minimalist box. Is it still available?
