My Japan Box Hello Kitty June 2018 Review

Hello Kitty Washcloth

This is actually a really nice quality! I've seen this brand before as I got a Totoro washcloth in a different Japanese box and it's really plush and well-made. This particular one is red with polka dots, apples and hair bows surrounding "Hello Kitty" spelled out. You'll see our girl embroidered on the washcloth as well as three bows at the bottom which make up the bottom hem. Perfect for scrubbing a dub dub in the tub, or just wiping a facial mask off!

Hello Kitty Makeup Bag (or Pencil Pouch)

Though I think I prefer to call this a makeup bag, this could also presumably hold all of your pencils and pens too. It's a nice size bag that should fit a good amount of makeup products that you'll need on the go. The canvas fabric of the bag is durable as well as the gold zipper with HK box pull! The cream body has red trim and there are different designs on each side, both featuring HK and her mouse friend, Joey.

Maybe not everyone likes bath bombs, but I sure do. Especially when there is a little Sanrio figure on the inside. I can't wait to take a pink fizzy bath to see which one I got!

Hello Kitty Metal and Enamel Charm

Another nice quality item comes through with this gold metal and enamel Hello Kitty charm. It has a little lobster claw latch that allows you to attach this to a zipper pull, keychain, or even a charm bracelet if you so desire. The front only shows her head and front paws (excuse me, hands) while the back has her feet, tail, and the back of her ears and red bow as if she's laying on her tummy.

Hello Kitty Chopsticks

Hey, these look familiar! That's because I just got the same set in February's box. My Japan Box is known for duplicates, and here they strike again. These are quite nice chopsticks though and I really like the design around the top. The bottom has special little grips so that your food doesn't slide out of your grasp too easily.

Another familiar item is this sheet of stickers because I just got these last month! Arg! These are cute and all, but I already have this full set so I wish they would have sent a different item.

Assorted Hello Kitty Candies

Assorted Hello Kitty Candies

They included three different candy treats this time, similarly like they did last month. There's a chocolate, some gum, and what looks like oyster crackers. The packaging is really cute, but these are definitely cheap snack items for such an expensive box. If anything, these should be bonus items which would make the average price of the other items even higher.

Verdict: Truth be told, I thought that My Japan Box Hello Kitty had a better showing this month than it had in a while as far as quality of items goes. Unfortunately, they still sent two items they had sent me before (in February, and just last month in May), which I find to be pretty disappointing. Like their KitKat box, I just feel like the lack of originality in each box, plus the value of the items just isn't worth the price tag. For $49.00 per month, I'd expect some real stunners in here. Even for a subscription box pro like myself, I had a hard time figuring out how to cancel this box and I have yet to get a response from their customer service that I sent an inquiry to 6 days ago. Luckily, we were able to just stop the payment via PayPal. Sad face. 

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, since boxes are mailed at the beginning of the month, it looks like you have to sign up by the end of each month to receive the following month's box as your first.

Value Breakdown: At $49.00 for this box, you're paying approximately $7.00 per item (I am counting the candies as one) which seems a little steep.
