Escape Monthly Subscription Box Review – June 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.
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
Each box comes with a fold out sheet detailing the items included. (The format is a little different this month – no more listed prices). This month’s destination is Vancouver / Victoria.
Native Origins Eco Bag – Value $7.95
(Subscribers may receive different bag designs). I seem to always have a use for more reusable totes – so this works for me!
Moon Travel Guide to Victoria & Vancouver Island – Value $10.44
Each Escape Monthly box comes with a different guidebook. (This is probably my least favorite part of this box because I never end up using them).
Rain City Foods Miso Ginger Grapefruit Dressing – Value $7?
I couldn’t find this dressing online, so I’m guessing on the price, but it sounds delicious!
SeaChange Salmon Pate – Value $8
I like seeing all these food items in the box! I can’t try the pate because of dairy (and also because my palette isn’t that sophisticated – my favorite subscription box food item is still anything that is gummy candy). But the salt will be great for margaritas!
Native Elements Magnet – Value $4? (Bonus item)
Murchie’s The Golden Jubilee Tea – Value $4.25
This tea is a black tea blend. I drink several cups of tea a day, so I’m always happy to get a new blend to try in a subscription box!
Coconama Specialty Chocolates – Value $7
(While I normally don’t count shipping in values, in this case I think it worth mentioning that it would be an additional $15 to ship these chocolates to the US if you were to buy them online).
This sampler included the flavors: mango, green tea, blueberry and coffee. My husband liked them a lot but didn’t LOVE them – which is a good thing considering the shipping costs!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $55. That’s pretty good for Escape Monthly, and I like the curation this month. (It is a little heavy on the food items though). What do you think of the June Escape Monthly box? Do you prefer more food or bath/beauty products for these boxes?
