This is my third box from ME; I discovered this box from spending too much time on this site (I imagine I’m not alone in that respect). I’ve subbed to five other boxes since then (yay Pusheen, OMG my mid-life crisis self loves you, it’s even cooler than shopping at an actual Sanrio store). But I digress.
Nothing has stunned me more than the amount and quality of ME items for the price.
I think it’s important that we respect the stunning packaging with this company…every single item has well-thought and well-executed packaging. These are vanity table items, for sure, and highly Instagram-able if that’s your thing. This packaging also allows for terrific regifting. And we don’t always love every item, so the one or two left over SHOULD be regifted, and even with the prices, they’re that good.
Such as, the last box we got a cucumber hand cream; I despise cucumber in every form (except after they become kosher dill pickles) but my dislike doesn’t make that a bad product, just one that’s not for me. So I regifted the heck out of that sucker to a friend who has a lot of cucumber-scented products and she loved it. The regifting with ME, because of the stellar packaging, is super easy and welcomed by the recipient.
It’s fair to say that most buyers of this box will have a few things in their box that don’t fit for them. However, I believe that this should not be a reason for not subbing or cancelling this box.
Even if you knock out your two least liked items from any given ME box, if you add up the full retail prices of the remainders, you’ll still have a very nice group of products with a retail value above the cost of the box.
I recommend this box and suggest that, if you’re interested, look on this site for other reviews of this box, and go through the items and see what you would like and what you wouldn’t… and if the retail prices of your “likes” add up to, or exceed, the cost of the box, then really consider subbing.
And even if you don’t love every item, you’ll still love several, and you’ll have a few awesome, gorgeously designed products per quarter. Plus, you’ll have an item or two that are gift-worthy, and you’ll be able to shop the ME site with (I think, I might be wrong) special discounts for box-subbers only.
I guess that’s the long way of saying that this sub is worth it and should be on your short list. It’s been stunning me for several months and I know that it will stun most others as well.
