Escape Monthly Subscription Box Review – May 2015
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!
(I had received a few requests to review this box again – so I’m picking up after the November box).
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
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
Moon Handbooks Montana & Wyoming – Value $15.50
Rocky Mountain Root Beer – Value $3
This month’s theme is the Rocky Mountains. They are still including a book in each box, but now the info brochure is emailed to subscribers instead of included in the box.
I love the design of the label on this Root Beer bottle! I’m sure my husband will love the root beer too.
Stash Bar – Value $2.79
Howdy Bar in Dark Chocolate with Almonds – Value $3.50
Dirty Diana Preserves – Value $2
So far I’ve sampled the chocolate bar and I’m a fan! (It was the right amount of sweet and didn’t make me miss milk chocolate like dark chocolate bars usually do!)
The jam looks good, and I think my husband will love the Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Stash Bar.
The Spirit Goat Goat’s Milk Lotion in Bear Lake Raspberries – 4 oz Value $4.50
I’m impressed with the size of this sample. Unfortunately, the added raspberry fragrance isn’t for me.
I like the carabiner addition to this sunscreen! It’s perfect just to attach to your beach bag.
Sierra Nevada Soap Company in Rosemary Lavender – Value $6.50
Salus Bath Bombs in Mountain Mint – Value $3
These are my two favorite items in the box. The scents are amazing! I always love a great natural lavender soap, and the bath bomb is so wonderfully minty!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $47. That’s within the range of what I expect for this box at the $39.95 a month price. I’m also happy with the mix of products they picked for May, and I can’t wait to use my Bath Bomb! What do you think of the May Escape Monthly Box?
