Each box comes with a card detailing the items included:
Now, on to the items!
Jewelry Love Shoppe Custom Wrap Ring in “Be Fearless” – Value Listed $18
There is no material listed on the info card, but the April box also included a bracelet from the same company, so I’m guessing it’s also made from Aluminum.
The wrap ring style isn’t that adjustable, I’d say this is a little larger than a size 7.
Here it is on:
Sugarfina Hot Lips – Retail Value $7.50
I LOVE Sugarfina gummies, so I was excited to see these in the box!
“Too hot to handle, these kisses start out sweet and end with a fiery twist of chili, ginger, and spice.” Yep, that’s exactly what happened – they were way too spicy for me! 🙁
Skyn Natural Feel Personal Lubricant – Value Listed $18 (On Amazon and Walgreens for $12.99)
This is a water-based lubricant gel that is fragrance-free and made with aloe vera. Unfortunately, it’s also made with 4 different parabens, which is a no-go for me.
Cosmo’s Wildest Sex Games – Value Listed $9.95
From fun, fearless fantasies to XXX-rated dares to seductively spicy sexts, Cosmo’s new card deck turns the heat up in your bedroom. Enjoy the “Hottest. Week. Ever.” with increasingly erotic positions, or move your lovemaking to whatever lusty location a card sends you. Dares, dirty decisions, Tantric touches . . . let the smokin’, sexy games begin!
This is the second time Cosmo has included an item from their own line. (In February, they included a book.) This card game features 10 different card games: never have I ever, truth or dare, etc.
Kristin Ess Temporary Tint in Rose Gold – Retail Value $12
This only works on blonde hair, so I couldn’t try it, but I did spray some out just to look at the formula. The spray is hot pink (be careful – it can make a mess), and you apply it in the shower to damp hair then rinse out. (They less wet the hair, the more the temporary color will take.)
This box also included a coupon code for 30% off any purchase of $75 or more from Unboundbabes.com. (No expiration date or terms listed.)
Verdict: This box has a retail value of $60.44. (I’m using the retail value of $12.99 for the SKYN product, as I believe Cosmo listed an incorrect MSRP). This is the lowest value box Cosmo has sent out to date, and it’s pretty disappointing considering they recently increased the price to $35.99 a box. Personally, these items weren’t a good fit for me either. I’m still trying to figure out exactly what subscribers should expect from Cosmo Box. Last month’s box was incredible, so it was going to be hard to follow no matter what, but it’s still a letdown.
I think CosmoBox needs to work on the curation – I want this box to feel like the items would be at home in the pages of Cosmo magazine.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? I believe so, but I recommend contacting their customer care to be sure.
What do you think of the June CosmoBox?
