Cravebox Winter Favorites

Cravebox has changed they way they send out their boxes.  They no longer offer a subscription service and limited edition boxes.  Now they just offer Craveboxes and this is how it works.  If you sign up for on their website to be notified when a box becomes available they will send you an email.  You submit your entry and if picked they send you out a box.  They will tell you the price of the box in advance but you don't get to know what's in the box, just the theme of the box. 

This box offered is the Winter Favorites Box.  The price of this box was $14.00.   

The good: 

Themed Boxes: While you don't know what exactly is coming in your box you know the general theme and the price it will be.  

The price: I don't think  I've ever paid more than $14.00 and the value (with the exception of 1 box) was always great.  

The not so good: 

I can't think of anything. 

All my winter treasures from Cravebox. 

This is the Mary Kay lip gloss.  How pretty is this color.

Verdict: This was a terrific box!  

I am not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for Cravebox.  I purchase these boxes myself.
