Mommy Mailbox, $33.95 per month (free shipping to US; add $10.50 for shipping to Canada)
These little buns just keep growing and growing! She won't fit in this box next month!
Mommy Mailbox is a monthly box of beauty products, home goods, and snacks. Don't let the name scare you away -- this isn't just for moms! The box reminds me a little bit of PopSugar in that it's more of a lifestyle box than a beauty box. Each month, Mommy Mailbox has a different mom blogger curate the box. All subscribers receive the same products
Mommy Mailbox sent me this box free of charge for review.
Here's what came in the June Mommy Mailbox:
- La Leela Beach Coverup (worth ~$20)
- Modish Polish Nail Polish in Malibu Sunrise (full size, worth $12)
- Luggage Tag (worth ~$5, made exclusively for Mommy Mailbox, no brand listed)
- Stash Selection Lariat Necklace (worth $12.95)
- LaRitzy Cosmetics Lip Pencil in Bare (full size, worth $18)
- McCrea's Candies Black Lava Sea Salt Caramels (small box, worth $3.95; full size costs $14.95)
The June box was worth about $71.90. I couldn't find the exact same beach coverup on La Leela's website, so I estimated the value by looking at the prices of similar products they sell. I also couldn't find the luggage tag online as it was a Mommy Mailbox exclusive, so I estimated its value also. I'm really happy with the value of the box! We got a good mix of products. This month's theme was Vacation and the curator was Lisa Fitch, who has a blog called That's So Darling.
First up, we have the La Leela Beach Coverup. I couldn't find this particular coverup on the La Leela website, so it's possible this style was made exclusively for Mommy Mailbox. The color is a pretty royal blue. This has cute little pearl buttons on it. It's made of polyester and it's somewhat transparent. I wasn't sure what I thought of the design at first, but I liked it a lot when I wore it at the beach. It's lightweight and dries quickly.
Modish Polish in Malibu Sunset is such a gorgeous color! It's a fun, sunny pale yellow, perfect for the summer! This is the second bottle of Modish Polish I've gotten and I'm a fan. The formula is vegan, cruelty-free, and 5-free. It held up for a few days without chipping, which is really good for me.
We also got a luggage tag to go along with the vacation theme. This is a good, sturdy tag. It's something a little different that you don't see in boxes often.
I wasn't sure what I thought of the lariat necklace trend at first, but, now that I've gotten a few from boxes, I really like it. The chain is delicate and pretty. I recommend looping the end around the hoop to keep it from moving around too much when you wear it.
LaRitzy used to be a regular subscription box, but, last year, they started their own cosmetics company. It doesn't look like they put out a subscription box anymore. I've liked the LaRitzy products I've tried. The lip pencil has great pigment, holds up all day, and keeps my lipstick from feathering. I prefer clear lip liners, so I won't get too much use out of this, but I will use it on occasion when I want a colorful liner.
The final product was McCrea's Black Lava Sea Salt Caramels. I always love getting sweet treats in subscription boxes! Sadly, I just had some dental work done and have a temporary crown, so I can't eat anything sticky until the permanent crown is put on at the end of the month. I tore off the teeniest piece so I could try it and loved the flavor. It's a very creamy caramel with just a hint of salt. I can't wait until I can eat these!
Mommy Mailbox knocked it out of the park again! The Vacation theme was a lot of fun. The coverup and necklace were probably my two favorite items, but I loved the nail polish, and liked the lip pencil and luggage tag, too. I think I'll really love the caramels, but I'll know for sure in a couple of weeks.
What did you think of this month's Mommy Mailbox?
