Cosmo Box Subscription Review – July/August 2018
There’s a new subscription box from Cosmopolitan – CosmoBox! Each month you’ll receive items selected by Cosmopolitan editors.
FYI – Cosmobox seems to be having some shipping issues. The June box arrived in July, and the July box got pushed back to August (and they let subscribers know they wouldn’t be charged for August.)
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Each box comes with a card detailing the items included:
Now, on to the items!
Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan – Retail Value $16
I was very excited to see this in the box. I can’t wait to see the movie, but really wanted to read the book first, so now I have my weekend reading plans! (If you’ve read the book/seen the movie, let me know if you recommend it!)
The Jennifer Cosmopolitan Sunglasses – Value Listed $35
These aviators have gold metal detail and tortoiseshell temple designs.
I love gold and aviators, so these were a perfect pair for me!
Here they are on:
Avéne Hydrating Sunscreen Balm SPF 50+ – Retail Value $16
This is a gentle sunscreen stick designed for delicate areas like ears, lips, eye contour, scars, etc. It goes on clear, is water resistant for 80 minutes, and has no discernable scent. I’m a fan!
Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Dry Shampoo – Retail Value $3.99
This dry shampoo goes on clear, smells fresh and floral, and doesn’t add any texture. If you want a dry shampoo without any volume/texture, this is a good one.
Saltwater Sundays Moisturizer – Value Listed $24
This is a lotion designed to be used post-sun. It’s made with aloe vera and “infused with Sea Salt, Coconut, and a shot of Vitamin Sea.” I was expecting a coconut/beachy scent, so I was a little disappointed with the scent. It smells more like your typical hair product. (Nothing wrong with that, I just love coconut!)
The formula is light and didn’t leave my skin feeling greasy.
Verdict: This box has a retail value of $94. That’s not bad for $35.99, but it’s a bit of a bummer getting a box that’s meant for Summer at the end of August. I’m already in fall mode! I really hope Cosmobox gets their shipping sorted out. We need a great women’s lifestyle monthly box at this price point, and I feel like this box has so much potential, but they haven’t hit their stride yet. (And I’d also love for them to be a bit more consistent in curation so subscribers know what to expect each month.)
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.
