  1. I am far from impressed. I have been with them from the start and every box keeps getting better. There is NO box that can compare. My husband who has traveled the world said after seeing a spoiler “we don’t need another jar or vase” loves my choice. It is going on his office desk. I adore the note cards . The wrap is so much prettier in person. It’s woven texture is perfect for spring & summer. I love the smell & packaging of the scrub. The necklaces and earrings are such fine quality and would be a great gift too (not mine though they’re keepers). It is so hard to pick a favorite item. I hope you enjoy your choices as much as I love mine. I cannot wait to see where we go next.

  2. In the Qindao booklet we got with the box, it doesn’t show the note cards with advertising on the front. Very disappointing!

    • Hi Sonja,

      Apologies for the confusion, but the note card do not have advertising on the front. The back of the card has my logo and website, which is the format for nearly all commercial cards on the market. I assume the confusion is because unlike most cards, we added printing to the back side. Normally the backside is blank and for an added design appeal we added printing to the back. Hopefully this clears things up!

      Journee Well,


  3. I got my box yesterday. While everything is beautiful, I did NOT appreciate the Kevia advertising on the front of the note cards. This is tacky, and I really don’t want to give someone a note card with advertising on the front of the card.

  4. I received the Jaipur and Qindao JourneeBoxes today. Each box left me breathless with goosebumps and audible gasps. The box itself is so beautiful. Each item was wrapped to perfection and the curation impeccable. Each item is a one-of-kind and so, so gorgeous. I have never received such good customer service (Hanna, thank you so much! This is absolutely the best subscription box I have ever received. I have NEVER received a box that I had a need/want to keep everything for myself. Not one item will I give away or swap. I love Kevia’s styling and curation. You should check out her Instagram account. Just stunning.

    (I almost cried! It’s the most perfect sub box ever!)

    (I almost cried! It’s the most perfect sub box ever!)

  6. This offering blows away every sub and so many have been stellar. The quality and value are truly amazing. The presentation itself is a gift in itself! Annual is the way to go because of the fabulous addition included as an annual member. Take a leap; this is remarkable.

  7. Oh my goodness, I received my box today! It’s just so gorgeous from the box to the packaging to the objects. It just makes me so much happier than any other sub, like a gift from a well traveled friend!

    • Isn’t it fantastic?!

  8. Wow I want this so badly!

    Ugh but I’m trying to be good. I recently went a little subscription crazy.

    • As an annual sub with the majors (RZ, FFF,Causebox, PSMH) And spending way too much so will drop 2, I Strongly urge you to try this box! Outstanding quality (blows away almost all other jewelry), fine CS, great curation, just think this is above and beyond the rest, currently. And no, I don’t know anyone who works there and no affiliation whatsoever, just stumbled across it on MSA. Worth it!

      • Well I just ended up going for it lol. Ugh I already have FFF (annual), Causebox (annual), Ellie (three months), Ipsy, and GlobeIn (three months).

        Plan on cancelling GlobeIn at least. Might skip next months Ipsy in honor of this. Too much but I couldn’t resist… it looks so nice.

  9. I love how they up-level every month! Customization still had its kinks but the new setup looks like it’s going to be sooooo good when they sort it out. And having add-ons PLUS discounts was just…guys, I’m obsessed with this box.

  10. I’ve gotten 3 emails to customize and have a confirmation email from the first email!

    • Me, too! Hopefully it’s just a meaningless glitch in the new platform. I’m a new annual subscriber so I responded to the third email I received to find out if I’m all set. Just waiting to hear back from someone. They have been excellent with their follow-up communication so far.

      • Hi,

        So sorry, yes it is a glitch. If you have a confirmation email you are set. We appreciate your patience, this is such a great community.

        Journee Well,

        Customer Service

      • I received an email to customize, but I never received a confirmation email. This happened to me last box too. I don’t understand why I receive some emails and not others.

        I agree that this box is amazing though. The last box was my first and I loved everything in it. Customer service is quick and very helpful. I just wish their website was updated more frequently and that I received all of the emails. I would prefer to know in advance when spoilers will be released and customization will be.

      • Hi Lynn,

        Please email us so we can confirm that your order was completed, [email protected]. Our confirmation emails are sent automatically via Shopify, so if you don’t have confirmation there is good chance your order was not completed. We can also add you to our manual email list, some customers are unable to receive our emails via Mailchimp. Once we have your email we can do some research and get communication or your report corrected.

        Journee Well

  11. Received my customization email early this morning. Had no trouble checking out, it was just difficult trying to decide lol! 😂 For those Annuals who don’t see an email, be sure to check your spam. Sometimes my Gmail puts their emails there.

  12. Did get an email just before 3 pm est. Looks like they are still having issues with the customization process. Excited for my first box. I added on the welcome kit as well.

    • I am excited for you! This is the best!

  13. No email yet.

  14. So excited! I just subscribed!! 🎉🎉

  15. Will non-annual subscribers get to customize some items or is it only annuals?

    • Where are the rest of the comments? I just subscribed to this box and am super excited! When do non annual subscribers get to customize?

      • Hi,

        Yes we are confirming, all members customize, annual members get an extra item each box.

        Customer Service

    • From reading the website it looks like all members get to customize, you just get one less item (this case the earrings). But I’ve never subscribed so I’m not positive

    • Yes! I just customized… the blue scarf, brown jar and silver necklaces. And I am so proud that I did not cave and add anything else!

  16. I have also not received a customization email. I have checked multiple times this morning.

    • My email arrived at 3:05p

  17. All are beautiful choices. Can’t wait to receive my box and see what other items are included.
    I went with the blue scarf, the silver earrings and necklace sets, and the brown jar.

    • Box twins. I went for the same combo.

      • Triplets! Same box for me. Can’t wait to receive it!

  18. Hmmm… I didn’t get the customization email. Anyone else missing theirs?

    • I did not receive it nor can I customize on the website. I am an annual but this will be my first box.

      • Same – annual subscriber, first box. Hopefully ours are coming soon. It makes me feel a bit better to know I’m not the only one waiting. I did email customer service to ask about it but I’m not sure if/when they might reply.

      • Update – I somehow wasn’t signed up on their email list (probably unsubscribed) and once I corrected that I got my email a few hours later.

    • Hi All,

      Please email the office so we can put you on the manual email list. For some reason, Mailchimp won’t email certain people using our domain name. This way you get an email directly from customer service each mailing. You can subscribe using the links below depending on your membership price:


      Journee Well,

      Customer Service

  19. I customize this morning, super excited to receive my box. Also Kevia and Team are just amazing, they kept us in the loop of what was happening and were very responsive on the situation.

  20. I went to purchase this and it said the code has expired. How did the code already expire when you just put this review up?

    • This isn’t a review, it’s an announcement to customize. And the code was put up two weeks ago, so it’s likely they have a different code now.

      • Thank you for the information. Still, why put a useless code up? Once they put a working code up, I will subscribe.

      • I’m sure that as far as MSA knew, the code was still working. They can only give us the information that they have. Instead of getting upset over it, you could just politely let Liz know that the code is expired, and see if she can reach out for a new one. 🙂

      • I beg your pardon? Who said I was upset? Keep your snark for someone else. I am cool as a cucumber over here. I just wondered why they would not give MSA the most current info on their discounts for boxes. I am currently checking on and off to see when they update so I can subscribe. Also to see if they have the customization issues ironed out, now that I see some annuals having problems with that. I love MSA and I appreciate their reviews, their giveaways, etc.

    • Sheri, when I subbed I got a $15 discount that came from Journeebox itself. I believe I signed up for the email list and they sent me a $15 off code. Hope that helps! Their items are great quality and beautiful, you would love their boxes.

    • Hi All,

      Yes, the promo from the last posting expired, but the new code is MSAQ20. It gives you $15 off your first box. Once you subscribe the customization instructions will automatically be emailed. Contact us with any questions, [email protected].

      Journee Well,


  21. Don’t annul members get a free gift Liz? Was that ever mentioned?

    • I’m not Liz, but the hoop earring set is the gift for annual subscribers in this box. 🙂

  22. Love JourneeBox. Customized! Excited to open up my box & see the other curated items!
