Mommy Mailbox July 2018 Review
Each box comes with a card detailing the month’s products and brands. The theme this month is “Rest and Relaxation” and the box was curated by featured blogger, Krista Brusso.
Blue Gem Sunglasses - Estimated Value $25.00 (Based on their total assortment since I was unable to locate the exact pair!)
I love the idea of receiving sunglasses in a box because as they said on the card, you can never have too many! Unfortunately, these were way too round for me. I love that they have metal arms and fit comfortably on my large head, but I felt like a fly wearing them. I'll keep them for emergency backups or pass them along to a friend!
Manna Kadar Eyeconic False Lashes - Retail Value $8
Wow, these lashes! They are definitely some statement lashes with that length. I can't really see myself using these for anything other than Halloween though! I'm also not quite sure how well they fit into the rest and relaxation theme.
Manna Kadar Prime Time - Retail Value $24.00
It says this primer can be used for both lips and eyes. I actually ended up using this as an undereye concealer and while the formula is a bit cakey, it blended well and worked to cover my circles helping me to at least look well rested and relaxed! I think this will be a great backup concealer for me to keep in my car or purse for those moments when I need to look refreshed since I already have another concealer I prefer!
Caboose Old No. 1 Seasoning and BBQ Rub 1 oz. - Estimated Value $3.00 (Buy a 4 oz bag for $11.99)
This seasoning seemed more like an Asian seasoning to me for some reason. I think it was the fennel, anise and black pepper that really stood out to me. It tastes exactly like it says- tangy and sweet with a little bit of heat. We will definitely be using this up! They actually say you can use it in apple pie. I'm not scared to try new things in the kitchen, so I might just give it a whirl!
Sailor Paper Company Notepad - Retail Value $9.00
How cute is this notepad? It's just a simple pad, no magnet on the back or anything, but this watermelon design is adorable! I remember the days when my beach packing list was simple enough to just fit on one of these pages. Now it seems like I could probably fill the whole pad! I'm always happy to have an extra notepad around for jotting things down, so this was a great summer box item for me.
Verdict: This month’s Mommy Mailbox theme was Rest and Relaxation and I'm not quite sure I felt that with the items in the box. I liked the primer, bbq rub, and notepad, but definitely could have done without the false eyelashes. The sunglasses are a great idea, but I wish the shape was a little bit more flattering! Overall, I'm feeling kind of meh about this box, since it definitely didn't have enough items to really give me that feeling of R and R like it was supposed to. The box costs $33.95 and I estimate the value to be about $69, which is still fair, but not quite worth it to me this month. How are you all feeling about July's box? I'm curious!
