March 2017 New Subscription Boxes – Which Should We Review?

ByMSAMar 31, 2017 | 34 comments


It seems like we learn about a few new subscription boxes every day – so we decided it would be fun to try a little roundup of some interesting new boxes at the end of each month, and let you vote for which ones we review next.

(This list isn’t strictly boxes that just started last month, but boxes new to us and boxes we want your feedback on!)

Before we get started on new boxes, below is a quick update on your favorites from last month’s post:

Sign up to be notified when new reviews post for any of boxes by clicking on the name of the box, clicking the “Get Email Alerts” button and signing up, then checking off the “Reviews” checkbox.

As always, thank you for being an MSA reader and telling us your thoughts! The March poll is at the bottom of the post. And if there are other boxes you’d like to see us review that aren’t listed here, please let us know in the comments!

Taste of Home box might be fun, too!


PLEASE STOP WITH THE CLOTHING AND BOOK BOXES!! The best part of this site is seeing cool boxes and deciding which ones to try. Why would I want to see what clothes some lady gets every month when they are going to send everyone different clothes. They arent really even subscription boxes. How many book boxes are on here like 10 at least??? Enough with the beauty boxes too please. What about some cool boxes like Spooky Box or a box for vaping or 420? Its getting so you have to scroll through 2 pages of boring to find something interesting. Im sorry, this is a great site but please enough already


I would like to start seeing reviews for the sub WinBeautyKit. It is not a new sub but I haven’t seen it here yet and it is a really good korean beauty sub. 🙂


I’d love to see you review the Sens Unique Box. It’s a high end niche perfume box that is themed each month.


Oooooooh. 🤤


Third & Main is not letting me use the coupon code. Bummer!


We just included the coupon code to include bi-monthly! Please try it again, if you were trying to apply it to bi-monthly. Thank you!
Cherie Clairmont, Third & Main


The Wallflower Box just launched today… It’s a box for introverts. That might be interesting to review!


Ooh, I’ll have to look into that.

Layla Moore

PLease please please review So Choix!!!


Haley already reviews So Choix. 🙂 If you type “So Choix” in MSA’s search field, you’ll find all of her reviews.


I’d Love to see The Third and Main!


And My Lit Box!😁


Can you post spoilers for the Sugarbash box? I’m not sure if it’s new or not but I first heard about it in this site last month.


I would like to see Quarterlane get review.

Melissa W.

Maple Blume looks amazing and The Bee Box looks good too!


Only let me pick three.


I voted for SportsCrate but then i went to the website and saw it’s only unisex sizes…which is a shame, there is a huge market of female sports fans!


The Creepy Crate launches is April and I’m really excited! Please review it.


Mapleblume looks awesome! A box that is similar that I would love to see reviewed is Mintd Box. They are a luxury beauty box from the U.K. (mainly skin care with an occasional makeup item thrown in) that recently started shipping to the US. I’ve been getting their boxes for a couple months now and really love them.


Do they ever do coupons for new subs?


I’m subbed to Mintd too! 🙂 I’ve mentioned it a few times on here, but it hasn’t caught on yet. It’s a pretty awesome beauty box that I think a lot of readers would be interested in. I’ve also mentioned Look Incredible & Bare Element a few times too (along with Maple Blume) which are all great beauty boxes (I’m subbed to them all 🙂 ). Maybe Mintd, Look Incredible, or Bare Element will be featured next month as a potential new sub!


I just subbed to look incredible…can’t wait!


I agree completely about this box, but I do think it used to be reviewed here.


I’m not sure which box you’re referring to (Mintd or Maple Blume), but I don’t think MSA has reviewed any of these since Mintd just started shipping to the U.S. around the beginning of this year (it’s a U.K. box), and Maple Blume is a fairly new box (it just launched in December). But, out of curiosity I did a search for them and couldn’t find them in MSA.


Please review Bad Ass Mom Box too!!


Third and Main looks awesome!! I’ve never heard of it before.


They have spoilers posted for their first box; it’s the premier box. It has a serving bowl and two wooden utensils. $55+ shipping is a little steep for me for a home box; the RV value is $93. But I love the idea of the box. I’ll have to keep an eye on it.


and shipping is $10. I like the box as well but I can’t tell what the bowl is made up. What if it’s melamine?


I hope to see Maple Blume reviewed (eventually… even if it’s not picked for this month). I think I’ve lost count how many times I’ve mentioned it in MSA’s comments & the forum (ha ha!), but I’m subscribed, and have absolutely loved their boxes. They’re definitely in my top 3 favorite beauty boxes.

I’m not a fan of the smell of honey, but I also voted for that bee beauty box. I can’t say no to a review of *another* natural beauty box! 😀

I said it before, but I’ll say it again (and probably in future posts)… thanks for doing this post MSA! It’s always fun to see the different boxes that are out there.
