JourneeBox Summer 2019 Review
Included is a highly detailed booklet with info about all of the products. The theme this month is "A Journee to the South of France" which sounds pretty darn dreamy. Since I have no real travel plans left this summer, I will absolutely take a mental escape to France with this box as my guide!
Tunic - Retail Value $85.00
I generally wear an XL in tops, but because I am beyond "gifted" up top, I decided to play it safe and request the 1X in this tunic because I assumed it wouldn't stretch and I was unfamiliar with the sizing. I feel like I def. could have sized down, though this oversized fit does lend itself well to a swimsuit coverup. The quality is great! It is a soft and light rayon with really cute details around the sleeves, neck, and hem. I initially had trouble picking a color because they all seemed rather bright and your girl is much more neutral these days when it comes to clothing. I went way out of my comfort zone with the purple and although this is not a color I would wear often, I don't think it was half bad on me.
I do think I looked more than a little frumpy in this tunic, but sizing down would have really helped. It also occurred to me that this would be super comfy to sleep in, so that is another option, especially as I love loose long tops to snooze in.
Organic Herbes de Provence - Listed Value $13.00
Mmmmm I love a good herb blend and this one is stellar. I like to use Herbes de Provence blends when I cook poultry, and I have been known to use similar blends on my Thanksgiving turkeys. This potent blend of thyme, rosemary, basil, and tarragon also features lavender buds which make it that much more special and aromatic.
3-Piece Cheese Knives - Retail Value $12.00
I am a cheese enthusiast (addict?) and I have a few cheeseboards I like to arrange when I have company. I don't really have many dedicated cheese knives and accessories, so I was pretty excited to open this pouch. The handles of these pieces are made of bamboo, which is sustainable as well as attractive.
Organic Cotton Tea Towel - Listed Value $18.00
This 100% organic cotton towel features a charming illustration inspired by Cannes. I generally keep tea towels close by to wrap warm bread in or hang them from a hook by my stove for spills. I like the little pops of color on this towel and the setting is very French indeed.
White Citrus Tea Soap - Retail Value $6.00
As soon as I opened the box this magical blend of citrus, flowers, and musk hit my nose. They honestly need to make this scent into a perfume. This fancy yet rustic French-made soap would be perfect for a powder room or in a cute dish by your kitchen sink. I find the cube shape pretty adorable and I love how each side is stamped.
Cassis Cuff and Earring Set - Listed Value $103.00
The texture of these hammered pieces is meant to look like the gentle ripples of the Mediterranean sea on the shore of Cassis, France. I found that I liked the earrings more than the cuff itself, which was a little too wide for my tastes. Both the silver plate and the 14k gold plating are shiny and bright, giving these simple pieces more presence. They would work really well with both a sundress or a boss lady blazer, making them both very versatile pieces.
I like these a lot. They make charming little sounds as I wear them and because they are both silver and gold, I can wear them with anything!
This adjustable cuff fit well, but wasn't super comfortable because it was so wide.
Annual Subscriber Item: Cassis Necklace - Retail Value $52.00
Finally, we have a coordinating necklace that is a bonus gift to annual subscribers. I actually think it is great that this sub rewards annual members rather than just gifting cool stuff only to new members. It is a multi-layer piece that has a great length and makes layering super easy since it is all built into the same clasp.
I love the length!
Verdict: JourneeBox felt really nicely themed and curated this season. I really liked the emphasis on French-inspired items and the mix of wearable items and kitchen-y goods. I am not 100% sure how I feel about the tunic as a top, but I like it enough to stash for a beach coverup or a sleep shirt since it is so soft! I also really liked the necklace and earrings, and I already plan on gifting the cuff to a friend who will adore it. The soap, knives, and towel will all get a ton of use in my kitchen, and I can't wait to try the herbs on some chicken this weekend. This continues to be a subscription I really look forward to because the items are high-quality and thoughtful and everything is beautifully packaged. This is also one of those subscriptions that always has super giftable items, making it a nice "treat-yourself" opportunity or gift giving purchase.
