Mommy Mailbox February 2018 Review
Each box comes with a card detailing the month’s products and brands. The theme this month is “Enjoy” and the box was curated by featured blogger, Tiffany Barry.
GoVino 8- ounce Shatterproof Flutes Set of 2 – Retail Value $8.95
These GoVino champagne flutes are such a great idea for a little Mommy present. They are easy to take with you if you are able to get a night away or perfect for picnics with the family when the weather is nice. Anything I don’t have to worry about breaking makes life much easier! Plus they are dishwasher safe, so that convenience is an added bonus!
KnickKnockers Bottle Tote – Retail Value $15.95
I love the simplicity of this wine bag and I will definitely get some use out of it once this baby comes. It’s perfect to provide just enough cushion for transporting a bottle of wine, or if you’re feeling generous, it would make a great gift bag for a hostess gift.
Melville Candy Chocolate Lovers Strawberry Lollipop – Buy a box of 12 for $36.99
I am a sucker for chocolate covered strawberries so this was right up my alley and a perfect nod to Valentine’s Day! It took me a minute to stop trying to just bite into the chocolate, but after realizing I had to eat it like a regular lollipop, I was impressed with how the flavors went together. My only complaint is that it wasn’t entirely covered in chocolate…but that’s just me! It really was a delicious little treat to savor during naptime – when I didn’t have to share.
Stash Selection Rose Gold Bobby Pins – Estimated Value $12.95
I could not find these for sale anywhere so this is my best guess based on other items for sale on their website. These bobby pins are super cute! I love rose gold (it’s my current obsession) so I was happy to see these. They are a nice size and the shape is simple enough that you can wear them every day. The fit was nice in my hair – it didn’t snag and it was perfect to hold my hair out of my face so that you can see the Laritzy eye shadow I am wearing! (detailed below)
LARITZY Nue Eyeshadow Palette – Retail Value $36.00
This eyeshadow (swatched below from top row to bottom row) contained a variety of nudes, browns and copper tones. Normally I wouldn’t select a palette like this for winter (I’m just too pale!), but the colors actually surprised me and felt flattering. There was not a lot of fall out, but I think that’s because it took several layers of shadow to get the pigment to show up. It took several swipes to get that first set of swatches, but the darker shadows went on much smoother and overall I found the shadows easy to blend. I was pleasantly surprised with how long the colors stayed put and that they did not look as orange on as they did in the palette.
Here are the swatches for a better look at the colors!
Verdict: This was my first Mommy Mailbox and it was so fun to receive a box full of items just for me. I love that there was a variety of products- beauty, lifestyle and a sweet treat. I think all of the items fit the “Enjoy” theme nicely and tied in well with Galentine’s and Valentine’s Day (treat yourself!). The value of everything in this box was over $60 and I’m not even including the bobby pins in that since they are just an estimated value. This is well over the $33.95 cost of the box!
