This is Why You’re Single – $13.21 on Amazon (retail price: $15.99)
I read the first two chapters, informative in my opinion, all told in an entertaining tone. The book has handy illustrations, charts, quizzes, and a section on deciphering text messages. No matter what the age, single woman are navigating dating in a technological era and text messages have taken over phone conversations, so this type of info is needed. From what I have glanced and read over it’s a short read, not complicated, informative and amusing.
The Crispery Crispycake toppings (nonpareils) were hard and the actual marshmallow treat was sweet and crunchy. I shared with my friend and she agreed with me in regards to the taste and felt in “no way would I pay $5.00 for this”. Having experienced other marshmallow treats this was a let down but not a total loss of enjoyment minus the hard nonpareils.
Ms. Betty’s Original Bad-Ass Whipped Body Butter (4 oz.) – $10.00
The body butter is thick and creamy without a greasy residue. It left my skin soft, moisturized and the fruity scent lingered on me throughout the morning and into the early afternoon.
Soapgirl.co Grapefruit+Sea Salt – $7.00
This is a refreshing bar soap made locally with fresh organic ingredients. A fruity, sweet smell upon opening and when in use the scent had faded making it a perfect match to layer with a scented lotion or cream after bathing. The soap was sturdy, lathering and held its shape while showering. I enjoyed how it made my skin feel – amazing.
NCLA Rose Rock Nail Wraps – $16.00
These nail wraps are peachy, black, and white speckled and were included in the Nylon Magazine 2015 Beauty Awards. I have seen nail wraps in past subscription boxes and never got the allure of the item but this product fits the the theme of this subscription box, in my opinion.
100% Polyester/Machine Washable, One Size Fits All
A fun twist on dealing with a break up, the ankle socks include a message “It’s Not Me, It’s You.” “Included on the back of the package is a 4×6 lined sticker so you can write a heartfelt message”.
As you can see by the photo, the ankle socks were a snug fit for my size ten feet. Not sure I would pass this on to someone I was breaking up with, written with a heartfelt message as suggested on the package. But maybe lounge socks to remind yourself that you are in a better place without him.
“This handmade piece is lovingly crafted by a mother in Kenya. Each piece supports a clean water project in a Free The Children community overseas”. “In Swahili, the word market is Soko. These beaded bracelets features brass pieces with glass beads for a touch of boho-chic. The bracelet was tight as I stretched it over my hands but once on it fit with ease.
Verdict:The total retail value is $67.66 (info card indicated a $70.00 value). I based the book off the Amazon price and the Crispery Crispycake off the actual website. Even though the products’ value exceeds the cost of the box, there wasn’t a high value item that wowed me. However the specialness of the box’s theme is great to have on the market and inspires women to treat themselves
