Trendy Memo January 2018 Review
Enclosed in each box is an info card with a list of the contents of the box and on the back of the card a “top goals & priorities” list.
“Good Vibes Only” Ceramic Mug – Retail Value $21.95
This ceramic mug will hold 14oz of hot or cold liquids. It has a gold handle and “Good Vibes Only” inscribed on the front of the mug in gold and black. The ceramic mug is not microwavable, and handwash only. This chic mug has an uplifting message to encourage me throughout the year. The mug is an acceptable size to hold my favorite beverage, and the weight of the mug is not heavy.
2018 Mini Desk Calendar – Retail Value $15.00
This mini desk calendar has a metal stand with a copper finish that came in two pieces with a slit that I connected to make the platform. There are twelve-monthly mini pages in black and white that sit on the stand for my viewing. This desk calendar is not too big or too small for my desk; it will fit perfectly on the corner of my desk. The design is stylish and a favorite item from this box.
This black and crystal pen is a 2-in-1 capacitive stylus (perfect for any electronic, cellular device) with a ball-point pen. I can adjust the pen by rotating the tip to write. It’s a clever idea to have the stylus on one end and the pen to write with on the other end, with our society being more and more digital. This pen is a must-have and I will keep it in my purse.
Matcha Green Tea Face Mask, 0.5oz – Estimated Value $3.00 (buy a 2.5 oz. jar for $15.00)
This hand-crafted cruelty-free face mask has organic matcha powder and bentonite clay. The bentonite clay also called Montmorillonite intends to rid skin of impurities and toxins, helps control excessive sebum, soften and exfoliate skin, and is safe for all skin tones. Matcha powder is a potent antioxidant, it intends to catch and deactivate my face of free radicals, and circumvents the signs of aging. I poured out a small amount of the clay mask powder and added water and mixed till there was a putty-like consistency. I applied a thin layer on my face, let dry and rinsed off with warm water. As I waited for the mask to dry on my face, the mask tightened to my skin. It’s recommended to mix a teaspoon of powder with a tablespoon of liquid (try rose water, aloe vera water, or coconut water) and use 1-2 times a week. I didn’t notice any changes in my skin or have an irritation from the mask. My skin felt refreshed.
Binder Clips – Retail Value $3.99
This set consists of six large binder clips with a white and gold striped design. The clips are 1 ¼” and holds up to 60 sheets of paper. These clips will jazz up my papers that I need to sort and organize.
Body Boosting Antioxidant Mix, 1.5oz – Buy a 6-pack for $23.99
This snack pack is rich in antioxidants, gluten-free, vegan, and cholesterol free.The ingredients consist of cranberries, raisins, dark chocolate, walnuts, pecans, and dried blueberries. The mix was delicious and had the right amount of chocolate and fruit; it was heavy on the nut variety. I tend to enjoy fewer nuts mixed with my trail mix.
The Verdict: Trendy Memo has a boxed value of $44.94, not including the trail mix. That’s about $5.00 above the cost of the box, and despite the lower value than in previous months, I enjoyed the products. My favorite part of the box was how gold was displayed throughout the products, from the ceramic mug to the binder clips, to the mini desk calendar (my favorite item from the box). For me, it added a touch of chicness to the box’s curation. The box delivers on sending 4-6 products monthly, and the items are for your home or work office, over last few months their boxes have included more lifestyle, beauty products which I favor. Overall, an excellent box to start the new year.
