Each box comes with an info card talking about each of the featured brands and products.
3 Meal Cookie Diet Trio – value: $20
These are funny novelty cookies. I chuckled – especially as a new mom I tend to grab whatever is around for meals and the breastfeeding cravings are real! Haha, I love having sweets on hand, as much as I probably shouldn’t. These are cute and tasted good, but $20 for 3 cookies seems like a lot to me.
I appreciated that they include an ingredients sheet for the cookies since there wasn’t a label on their packaging.
This card is handmade, from a company that employs/helps women in need – such as survivors of sex trafficking in the Philippines or orphaned in Africa. I think it’s cute and it will make my husband laugh when I write him a little note on it.
Blue Q Coin Purse – value: $3.99
This coin purse is made with 95% post-consumer recycled material, which I like. I think the design is cute, even if it’s not exactly my taste.
FYI – this is one of the items that subscribers received a variation of.
Knock Knock Compact Mirror – value: $10
This mirror is pretty cute! The inside says “you’re perfect” on the mirror. I’ve loved the brand Knock Knock for a long time, so this is a fun item for me. They also have a mirror that says “Believe…” on the outside and “…in your selfie” on the inside. I love that! However, $10 is a lot for a plastic compact mirror. That is what they retail for, but it’s just expensive to me.
Blue Q Crew Socks – value: $10
These socks are another item that varied in designs. This one says “My favorite salad is wine.” I don’t drink, so I won’t wear these. They’ll get swapped!
Here’s a look at the inside of the mirror.
Emi Jay Nightshirt – value: $68
Subscribers received either a nightshirt, a muscle tee, or a pullover. Apparently, this night shirt was an Oprah 2015 Favorite Thing. It is very soft and comes in lots of different sizes. Also, it came with a hair band wrapped around it. Plus, they have funny phrases on them…
Here’s the phrase on my nightshirt. This is soft and comfortable (and a nice length for me), but I just don’t wear things that have quirky sayings on them like this. I know that’s my personal taste, though. I know. Since it’s so comfortable and it is made to sleep in (and for no one else to really see) I may still wear it.
Verdict: This was my first Lost Blvd. box. I like their mission and execution (regarding aiding the discovery process and telling the stories behind the brands they feature), but I feel like the theme just wasn’t a good match for my individual taste. That being said, I can’t deny that the items all seemed to be a really good quality, and as far as an “LOL” themed box, I think they did well in curation. Personally, I wouldn’t pay $75 for these items myself, but the retail value comes out to $117.99 so Lost Blvd. did hold up their promise of a $99.99 minimum. I think some of the items were over-valued, but as long as that’s what they retail for, I can’t really hold that against Lost Blvd. themselves.
