French Box Subscription Box Review – August 2015
French Box is a subscription box that sends you a box of France each month. This is the second box since their February box. (Check out the February review to see the issues with products in that box). Since then they’ve revamped the subscription. It now costs $36 a box, and ships every other month.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

This box came with a little black and white booklet detailing the items included.
Bouchons et Torchons Kitchen Towel – Value $22
(That made in France tag is a removable sticker). There are several variations of this towel subscribers might receive this month, and I think I got the french-est one of all!
An Eiffel tower made of macarons!
Notre Dame at Dusk Mini Poster – Value $8
This poster measures 22.5″ x 7.5”. The poster listed on the French Box site lists the poster as measuring 57″ long, so I’m guessing that’s a typo. I don’t always have a use for mini posters in boxes (and this one seems like a challenge to frame), but I think my mom will like this and figure out a way to display it!
Pierre Biscuiterie Pure Butter Cookies – Value $5
These cookies look SO good! I’m guessing my husband Eric will enjoy these with coffee!
Durance Ancian Rosa Protective Hand Cream – Value $28
This wasn’t my favorite item – I couldn’t get past the scent. Some rose scents I like, but sadly this wasn’t one of them. (There was variation in this product as well, so I may try to swap for a different scent!)
Clairefontaine Notebook – Value $5
Bic 4-Color Pen – Value $2?
FYI – this notebook is packed outside the inner box – I almost threw it in the recycling! This notebook has French-ruled paper of the Seyes grid (according to the Frenchbox booklet):
Verdict: This box has a value of about $70. I think that’s pretty good, and I like the back-to-school touches with the theme this month. This isn’t the most exciting box since the priciest item was a miss for me.
What do you think of the August French Box?
