Our Subscription Box Favorites for April!


We’re starting a new monthly post highlighting our favorite discoveries from subscription boxes! Here are our favorite items from the past month:

Haley’s Favorite:


The Item: Ginger G Cold Shoulder Swing Tee

The Cost: Value $40

From: Golden Tote $149 Tote

Why I love it: I’ve seen the criss-cross neckline and cold shoulder trends popping up everywhere but have yet to find them on a clothing article that worked for me. This shirt has them both on one of my favorite silhouettes: a swing top! It’s so easy to wear and feels like I’m just tossing on a comfortable t-shirt while still feeling chic and trendy.

Lacey’s Favorite:


The Item: Dr Brite Cleansing Mouth Rinse with Vitamin C, 3.4 fl oz Travel Size

The Cost: Value $6 

From: Ecocentric Mom (Coupon: Use code SAVE5 to save $5 off any subscription!)

Why I love it: I’m really surprising myself with this top pick. But I loved this product! I hate mouthwash, but I dutifully used this sample every day until it ran out, and I’m kicking myself because I haven’t gotten more yet and I really feel the difference!

Ragan’s Favorite:



The Item: Unique Vintage 1940s White & Cherry Print Cap Sleeve Dixon Day Dress

The Cost: Value $82

From: Unique Vintage Dress of the Month Club

Why I Love It: This is such a fun print – perfect for spring! I can totally wear this to work and it goes with my neon pink pumps. It fits really well, too.

Andy’s Favorite:



The Item: MSR Alpine Kitchen Set 

The Cost: Value $29.95 on Amazon (retail value: $39.95)

From: Isle Box (Coupon: Use coupon code MSA5OFF to receive $5 off your first box)

Why I love it: I took this with me on a kayaking trip this weekend and it was incredibly handy to have around. The measuring cup was a favorite among our group since most people brought cook-in-bag dehydrated meals. I used the squeeze tubes to bring along some homemade gochujang sauce, which went really well with the pre-cooked chicken cutlets I rolled up in seaweed with veggies. I placed the cutting board on a bare stump to chop up the chicken and used the towel as a hand rag throughout. Very useful little kit and it will be a mainstay on future adventures!

Sarah’s Favorite:


The Item: S Recover Black Charcoal Snail Facial Mask 

The Cost: Value $6 (on Amazon). No longer available.

From: Piibu Box (Coupon: Use code MSA10OFF to 10% off your first box!)

Why I love it: I’ve always enjoyed charcoal masks and having it in a sheet mask makes for a less messy experience! The mask was moisturizing and left my skin feeling supple and smooth. It also had a really fresh and fruity scent! 

Nancy S’ Favorite:


The Item: Rich Baked Chocolat

From: Bokksu (Coupon: Use code ADDICTION to save $10 off your first box!)

Why I love it: Bokksu sends some of the best Japanese snacks ever. I am kind of obsessed with this little pastry. It is soft and airy like a slice of cake but packs a rich, chocolatey punch like a brownie. It’s delightfully bite-sized and not to mention the presentation is pretty, too!

Anna Reilly’s Favorite:

The Item: Buffalo High Rise Skinny Jeans

The Cost: $79.00

From: ModaBox (Coupon: Use code MYSUB20 to save $20 off your first purchase!)

Why I love it: I didn’t expect to get jeans in my first ModaBox, and I was super scared to try them on at first (my curvier body has bad luck with jeans). But oh my gosh, my stylist nailed it! They’re cool and comfy and fit my body shape (no awkward gap at the back!) to a T!

Jessica’s Favorite:



The Item: Serafini Pendulum Customizable Earrings

The Cost: $170.00

From: Gift Izzy (Coupon: Save 10% off your first box with code MSA10)

Why I Love It: These earrings are so gorgeous, simple and elegant. I love their clean shape and lightweight feel. They work with both fancy outfits and jeans a t-shirt. They are one of my all-time favorite subscription box items.

Sara’s Favorite:


The Box: Trunk Club

The Cost: $25 styling fee per box. (The fee gets deducted from any items you decide to keep)

From: Trunk Club

Why I love it: I couldn’t pick one item that I loved this month. My April Trunk Club was a well-rounded box filled with my true style and balanced price points. My favorite items for the month, though, were Steve Madden Getdown Sandal (cost to keep: $59.95), Socialite High Neck Dress (cost to keep: $34), and Pleione Ruffled Peplum Back Top (cost to keep: $42).

Shawn’s Favorite:

WELLNESS-TRIBE-April -2017-08eye.jpg

The Item:  Lyeska Eye Cream Siberian Cedar Nut – Arctic Root (0.5 fl oz) 

The Cost: $52.00

From: Wellness Tribe (Coupon: Save 15% off any subscription with code WELLNESSADDICTION15)

Why I love it: This stuff is the bomb! It leaves my eye area feeling so soft and hydrated. It’s a natural product, handmade and without animal testing, GMOs, parabens, or fragrances. I’ve been using it for about month now and despite the price, I would buy more.

Nich’s Favorite:


The Item: Activated Charcoal Soap 

The Cost: Value $6.00

From: We Are Onyx (Coupon: Now through 5/30, use coupon code MSAFESTIVAL to get a Festival Survival Kit bonus box when you sign up for a subscription!)

Why I love It: It’s all natural and some of the ingredients include coconut oil, shea butter, peppermint essential oil and activated charcoal. I have been using this daily on my face and body. It’s lathering, the peppermint is intoxicating and the soap worked well on my face without irritation (my skin is on the normal side).

Eric’s Favorite:


The Item: Star-Lord + Milano Dorbz Ride

The Cost: Value $20-25?

From: Collector Corps 

Why I love it: This was a surprising favorite. I love Funko, but have never been too obsessed with Dorbz figure – but this Milano and Star-Lord Dorbz Ride was my easy favorite for the month!

Liz’s Favorite:


The Item: Abbey Lane Farm Solid Perfume in Spring Blossom

The Cost: Value $18

From: Terra Bella Box (Coupon: Use coupon code MSA10 to save 10%!)

Why I love it: This is the natural version of the Bobbi Brown Beach perfume I’ve been searching for! I love it!

  1. Ahaha, when I got to Nich’s favorite, it was near the bottom of the screen, and I thought “what can that beat up broken piece of black plastic?!”

    Y’all look so cute in your new duds! Ragan, your shoooes omg!

    One of the things I love about these posts is seeing things I wouldn’t otherwise see, boxes and even items I didn’t know existed.

    My fave this month is something I almost put up for swap: Trifle Cosmetic’s Sugar Bunny Lip Scrub. $18 for a little tube! (I sound like my husband’s Grandma Isabelle who, every time they went out to dinner, would exclaim, loudly, “LOOK AT THESE PRICES!” I hope she’s resting in peace in a place of low prices but high quality). I love my little jar of Chapstick lip scrub, way better than I liked E.L.F.’s stick lip scrub.

    Anyway, something made me take off the cap of the Sugar Bunny, and yum, a sweet but not heavy strawberry scent, so I figured what the heck, and I squeezed onto a tiny makeup spatula (so I could give it to someone else)… my lips scrubbed up so soft they were even soft the next morning! It had a much finer grain than either the Chapstick or the E.L.F. Guess I better swap for a couple more so I won’t have to actually pay money for them 😉

  2. Ragan, you look great in that dress, especially paired with those colorful shoes. Love!

    This is one of my fave features on MSA; please continue the good work, people. 🙂

  3. My favorite April thng was the From Molly Smudge spray un the Yogi Suprise box. I LOVE it. I spray it on my pillows, the air, my self….its perfection ❤️

  4. Agree w Jessica, the Serafini Pendulum earrings are spectacular. I also got the speaker from RV, just haven’t had time to start using it yet. But I have a feeling that will go into the best ever list!!

  5. My favorite of the above favorites is definitely Ragan’s dress from Unique Vintage. It’s just so cute and purdy! My favorite item I received was the Stelle Audio Pillar from Robb Vices. It’s funny – just a few days before I was thinking about how much I wanted a quality Bluetooth speaker and here comes RV granting my wish. Another favorite was a gorgeous, color block makeup bag from Awaken. Really bummed to see that sub end 🙁

    • I did not realize such a box like Unique Vintage Dress of the Month Club existed! OH NO! 😀

  6. My favorite this month from the Juice Beauty Moisturizer from Beautyfix:)
    I can actually see some tightening.
