October Blissmo Box Harvest Snacks

The Blissmo box is a monthly subscription service geared toward organic & eco products that are described as safer and better for you.  Each month they offer different boxes to choose from which vary based on themes or seasons. They offer various pricing structures depending monthly, 6 months or yearly.  The base price is always $19 but for monthly subscriptions add $5.95 shipping for 6 months subscriptions add $2.95 shipping and for yearly subscriptions shipping is free.  The company advertises that you will receive between $19-$40 worth of items for your $19-24.95.
Each month they send you an email with a choice of 2-3 boxes to pick from.  I've never had an issue of them running out of the box I want but I usually pick my box within a day or two of getting the email.  

Another cool thing Blissmo has been doing is offering boxes on their facebook page.  They sell the boxed for $19.95 with free shipping, it's a one time purchase with no membership required.  They don't always have boxes available but it's worth checking out if you want a box but don't want to commit. 

I know this review is a little late but Blissmo said they had some shipping issues so I just received this box last weekend. Better late than never right?

The good:

Like trying new things but not sure what to try? This is a good way to start trying new products without being overwhelmed or spending a bunch of money. 

Variety: They offer different theme boxes. 
Pricing: The company changed their pricing structure.  If you plan on subscribing yearly they give you free shipping. 

Information: They include a card with information about the company and their products.  Also on the card they list the value of each item received, I really appreciate this. 

The not so good: 

Skip a month? Yes, you can skip a month but they still charge you.  So if you skip October you will still be charged but you won't be charged again until you use that credit.  If you're skipping the month in order to save money this doesn't work.  The good part of it is if none of the boxes appeal to you then you aren't forced to waste the money so that's good.  I just think it would be easier for the customer to have the option to skip the month and not be charged. 

This is a picture of what the select your box email looks like.  They don't tell you what's in the box but give you little descriptions.  Through the email you click to their site and select your box. They send the emails mid-month and give you about a week to decide.

Verdict: Blissmo box never fails to disappointed.

I am not any type of sponsor paid of unpaid for Blissmo.  I purchase these subscriptions myself.  


  1. Those actually look really good! I've never tried Blissmo as I heard such mixed reviews, but I'm a little tempted!

    1. They offer 2-3 different boxes each month to,choose from which is nice. You can also skip if nothing appeals to you.
