Farm Momma January 2018 Review
The vibe of this box gives me so much pleasure. Farm Momma, Jess, prides herself on supporting small businesses with the items she chooses and takes great care in how she packages each item. This month she included a handwritten note a little card to write your goals, wishes, hopes and dreams for 2018.
Farm Momma Honey and Almond Soap
This nice-sized bar of soap is a Farm Momma exclusive. The soap smells delicious of nutty almond and sweet honey. It lathers up well and wasn’t drying on my skin at all.
Southern Glory Goods & Co. Scented Tea Light – Estimated Value $0.50
This tea light candle scent is called Mountain Lake. It’s a bit too masculine for my personal taste, but I tend to prefer fruity type household scents. If you prefer more rugged, outdoorsy scents this might be a big hit for you. I found the candle to be quite small and would have preferred something larger or at least more tea lights in the bag. I was delighted to discover this Etsy seller though, in addition to candles Southern Glory Goods & Co sells some very cool pouches, pillows and aprons on their site.
I’m not sure what to say about this hand towel other than: no. Just no. This isn’t a farm house handmade item. This is a poorly made dollar store type towel that doesn’t belong in this typically thoughtful and carefully curated box. I was disappointed with this filler towel to say the least.
Relax Wooden Sign by Carpenter Farmhouse – Retail Value $8.00
This delicate laser-cut wooden sign was packed in a paper envelope and unfortunately arrived broken from transit. I reached out to Jessica from Farm Momma and she apologized profusely and is mailing me a replacement. Her customer service is top-notch and she responds to all emails in less than 24 hours.
Pink Sugar Bath Bomb by Squishy Mushii – Estimated Value $5.00
This particular pink sugar scented bath bomb is not for sale on the Squishy Mushii site so I am estimating the value based on the other bath bombs for sale by this seller. The bomb was fizzy, scented and smelled great. I enjoy taking baths and always find a nicely scented bath bomb a real treat so I love getting them in subscription boxes.
Verdict: Farm Momma was a bit of a letdown this month. It didn’t contain nearly as many items as the December box and there didn’t seem to be anything of great value to be a real stand out item. This box costs $31.49 (free shipping to the US) and it is difficult to give it a value this month since so many items were difficult to find online or were exclusives such as the soap. I don’t feel that the value came close to the price though. While I love Farm Momma’s mission to highlight little known artisans and help small businesses grow and I love her attention to detail and customer service, I think the box needs to up its game to remain competitive in a highly saturated subscription box market.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the February box, which ships around the 15h!
Value Breakdown: This box costs $31.49 a month, which is an average of $6.30 per item for the 5 items I received this month.
