Mommy Mailbox Grab Box March 2018 Review
Everything came in a regular sized Mommy Mailbox box, but this box was so heavy! I really can’t believe how much they were able to pack into this tiny box. It was so much fun to open and see what was inside. I received a total of 20 items, 14 of which were from previous boxes, but the rest I’m not sure about, so if you are a regular subscriber, you might get repeat items, just FYI!
There were a total of three jewelry items in this box, which I think is the perfect amount. These little tassel earrings are just enough of a statement for me as I tend to keep my earrings on the smaller side. They are fun and casual and perfect for dressing up my everyday look.
These feel a little more costume-like to me with the big jewels, but you can see from the detailed back that they are a nice quality. They are a mix of glass crystals with a 14k gold plating and titanium posts. They are just sparkly enough for me to feel feminine without feeling gaudy and the pale colors make them fairly versatile.
This necklace is 14k gold plated zinc and as you can see it can be worn at either 16” (too tight for me!) or 18” long. While it is not the highest quality, so far it has held up to everyday wear and even my toddler son pulling on it.
I love the simplicity of this necklace and that it can be worn every day and go with just about anything. The length is just long enough that the neckline of your top shouldn’t matter and the gold adds a hint of flare.
Cashmere Scarf – Estimated Value $75.00 (from the October 2017 Mommy Mailbox)
This scarf was a Mommy Mailbox exclusive in the October box and the pink color was for Breast Cancer Awareness Month theme. This is 100% cashmere and I kept the estimated price from October’s review even though that actually seems on the lower end for cashmere that is not a blend.
This scarf is so soft and luxurious. It is also quite large and can easily be worn as a shawl as well.
Bryt socks began as a Kickstarter campaign with the goal of boosting confidence through fun and colorful socks. These have no-slip cuffs and reinforced heels for comfort and they certainly are the quirkiest socks in my drawer!
Stonework Studio Yoga Mat Cleanser (6.67 oz bottle) – Retail Value $14.95 (from the September 2017 Mommy Mailbox)
This yoga mat cleanser is made from a mix of witch hazel, distilled vinegar, and essential oils. The smell alone makes your mat feel fresher and doesn’t leave you smelling chemicals during your next downward facing dog. Plus the handle is designed to not break in your gym bag!
Rifle Paper Co. Bon Voyage Travel Memoir – Retail Value $15.00
Rifle Paper Co. has such detailed and beautiful designs and this Travel Memoir was no exception. I love the colors they used and that the actual pages are cream with gold lines. The cover is made of linen which feels very durable. Overall it is such a nice quality that it will make the perfect gift for anyone taking a trip.
I Sleigh Mug – Estimated Value $6.00 (From the December 2017 Mommy Mailbox. I updated this to reflect a lower value after reading some of the comments from December’s review!)
This mug was a Mommy Mailbox exclusive in the December box and came with the hot cocoa and spoon detailed below. The mug itself is very simple and has just a bit of iridescent shimmer. It’s a cute play on words for the holidays and will make a great gift come Christmas!
Who doesn’t love hot cocoa? Especially when it’s from Ghirardelli! This was a nice little treat to receive along with the Peppermint spoon below. Even though it’s April, we are still expected to get more snow or at least some colder weather so I’m looking forward to enjoying this on a chilly day to warm me up!
Melville Candy has such fun treats! They seem to be pretty creative and offer nice seasonal options! I’m sure this was a perfect treat to receive in the December box with chocolate, peppermint, and marshmallows. I am certainly looking forward to enjoying it with my hot cocoa soon!
These little handmade chalkboard gift tags are a handmade item from an Etsy shop. There are 8 tags with 4 different designs and I am sure they will come in handy for the holidays. They are really cute, gender neutral and I love that they come from such a small shop on Etsy!
This bath bomb is a decent size and it’s packaged so nicely with the orange sparkly ribbon that matches the bath bomb inside. I can see why they included it in the November box with these pretty fall colors! This has notes of citrus and berry and will make a nice, relaxing bath for a tired mama.
Illume Go Be Lovely Bar Soap in Sugared Blossom (6.4oz) – Retail Value $8.00 (from the October 2017 Mommy Mailbox)
How pretty is this soap? Just from the packaging, you can tell it is luxurious, especially for a bar soap. This has notes of jasmine, Italian citron, and Tahitian vanilla bean. I really don’t ever use bar soaps, but this is so pretty that I might just have to display it in my bathroom somewhere!
Jersey Shore Cosmetics My Lash Secret Eyelash Curler – Retail Value $30.00
I was happy to receive this beauty tool – eyelash curlers are one of those things that I use so rarely that I never invest in a decent one. The silicone cushion on this one seems a little firmer than most and it even came with an extra cushion once that one wears down!
Lauren Brooke Cosmetics Eco-Friendly Cheek Brush – Retail Value $17.00
This brush is incredibly soft and has the perfect angle on it for building color on your cheeks. This eco-friendly brush is natural, vegan-friendly and has a bamboo handle. While I have a brush set that I am happy with, this will be a nice one to throw into my bag when traveling!
Jersey Shore Cosmetics Natural Radiant Gold Leaf Highlighter (0.15oz) – Retail Value $22.00
This highlighter (swatched below) looked so crazy gold to me when I first opened it that I was a little afraid to try it, but it goes on so light that it’s hard to overdo it. It was very buildable and I felt like it gave me the most natural, shimmery glow. Even though yellow tones are not usually good for my skin, I felt very pretty and glowy in this. Plus it’s 100% natural & vegan, and paraben-free.
I used this lip primer before putting on the Lord & Berry gloss (both of which are swatched below) and I really felt like it made a difference in how the gloss went on. This is a pretty lightweight primer. It was smooth and helped to create a matte texture on my lips that seemed to even them out before applying a top coat of gloss.
Lord & Berry Skin Lip Gloss in Touch Up (0.203 oz) – Retail Value $16.00 (from the July 2017 Mommy Mailbox)
I was afraid that this gloss was going to be way too dark and possibly even goopy on my lips when I first saw it, but I’m happy to report that I was completely wrong! It went on so smoothly, was very lightweight and I really felt the color was so flattering. This is probably my new favorite makeup find!
I have received this sample several times now in other beauty boxes and the problem is that I don’t use anything on my brows, but it says you can also use it on your lips and eyes as well. It is water resistant and made from beeswax which is why I think it glides on so smoothly (swatched below). As for the color, it is supposed to be universal and work with many different hair colors, but since I’m brunette and this is brown, I can’t really attest to that!
Orglamix Cream Eyeshadow in Goji (0.12oz) – Retail Value $19.00
This was a pretty unique product for me as it is 100% natural and made from coconut oil, which I think is awesome, but also makes for difficult application! The coconut oil hardens up so I had to really work at it to get the product out. I did love how smooth and moisturizing it felt though and while the color didn’t seem like it would be flattering, it was pretty sheer so I think it works (swatched below)! It also seemed to stay on pretty well for a cream shadow!
These are the swatches of all the makeup from top to bottom: highlighter, lip primer, lip gloss, eyebrow pencil and eyeshadow.
In this photo, I have on the highlighter, primer, gloss, and eyeshadow.
Verdict: I was amazed at how much they were able to fit into this Grab Box! There was such a great variety of items inside and I really think I will use almost everything! Since I am a pretty new subscriber to Mommy Mailbox I didn’t receive any repeat items, but even the items that were from previous boxes are items I don’t think I would mind having doubles of for myself or for gifting! The promised value of the box was over $150 and the value I received was $347.49. This is an incredible value for a $42.95 box!
