Nina Garcia Quarterly Subscription Box Review #NGQ06
This is the 5th Nina Garcia Quarterly subscription box. Typically her boxes are mainly fashion related with a few beauty items, but this box is dedicated to travel products.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
(Everything comes wrapped in Nina’s hashtag paper).
The Subscription Box: Nina Garcia for Quarterly
The Cost: $100 a box plus shipping
The Products: Items hand selected by Nina Garcia!
Ships to: Everywhere (US $8, Canada $30; rest of world +$40)
Each Quarterly box comes with a letter from the curator describing the theme for that quarter, and background on every item they selected
Baggu Duck Bag in Leopard – Value $26
I love Baggu! This isn’t a bag I probably would have picked out for myself, but I like the print! It’s a thick canvas bag, and it has an inner snap pocket, plus tote handles as well:
And you can snap the sides together for a narrower opening:
I would have preferred the design if you could detach the shoulder strap, but I still like it a lot!
Chic Buds Charging Clutchette – Value $50
I love the design of this clutch. It’s a charging station for your phone, and it can function as a clutch too. Here is the polka dot lining:
And here is how much room is left when I put in my phone:
There is enough room for money/credit cards, lip balm and a hand sanitizer, so I’m happy!
While I would have preferred a less-bold/more versatile color, this clutch is definitely a perfect travel accessory.
Pinch Provisions Minimergency Kit – Value $16
Emi Jay Hair Ties – Value $11
I received one of these a few years ago thanks to POPSUGAR and it is pretty brilliant! I still can’t believe they fit 17 items in this tiny kit!
This 17-piece kit includes:
– Adhesive bandage
– Safety pin
– Earring backs
– Deodorant towelette
– Nail polish remover pad
– Stain remover pad
– Clear elastics
– Lip balm
– Emery board
– Hair spray
– Clear nail polish
– Dental floss
– Mending kit
– Breath freshener
– Double-sided tape
– Pain reliever
Here is a look inside the kit:
I love the fabric material on this one!
Flight001 Luggage Tag – Value $7
This luggage tag will probably be gifted or swapped – it isn’t my style. (The color will definitely work for spotting your bag, though!)
Flight001 X-Ray Passport Cover – Value $10
I like the simplicity of this passport cover (not sure if you can tell with the inner packaging, but it transparent).
Weleda Skin Food – 1 oz Value $7.60
This beauty item totally makes sense for a travel-themed box. It is a very rich hand and body cream, with a relaxing scent and no parabens or phthalates. I’m a fan!
FLIGHT001 Sleep Mask – Value $16
This sleep mask is really well designed. The back stretchy strap has a velcro closure so you can adjust it to the perfect size, and it has a light-eliminating insert that provides extra coverage across the nose bridge.
Shoebox Pro 1-Year Subscription – Value $60
This is a digital subscription for storing photos and video files. (Good news – if you want to try this out, they also offer a free version).
FYI – this box also was supposed to come with Jane Iredale Blotting Papers – Value $11 (but they were missing from my box. I haven’t reached out to Quarterly yet about the missing item).
Verdict: This box has a value of about $215 (that is including the $60 shoebox digital subscription). This is the lowest value of any of Nina’s boxes. (Still a great value for a $100 Quarterly box, though). While I like the items included, this box wasn’t exactly what I was expecting from a Nina travel box. (I was hoping for a few new-to-me brands and fabulous fashion accessories for traveling). I wish there had been one or two less silly/fun FLIGHT001 items, and one or two more chic items instead.
What do you think of the #NGQ06 box?
