December Momme Box

What is Momme Box?  It's a new monthly subscription service that is marketed towards moms of all ages and backgrounds.  As most of you know I'm not a mom but I've noticed a lot of these mom theme boxes contain items that anyone would enjoy.  The price for this box is $20 a month of you can sign up for a 3 months subscription for $18 a month or a 4 month subscription for $15 a month, shipping is included in all the above prices.  With the 4 month subscription you are charged $60 and will get 4 boxes then you will be charged $15 a month until you cancel.  Each box contains items that will focus on beauty, health, lifestyle, home, education and more.  Also each month will have a theme to the box and you can actually look on their website to see what all the themes are for 2013. 


The good:

Variety: They include lots of products for different aspects of your life. 

Recurring: Unless you opt for the 4 month subscription this is not a recurring subscription box so you don't have to worry about skipping or canceling. 

The not so good:

Price: $20 a month is a little high for a surprise box. $15 is much more reasonable but you can't skip if you go that route.

This is the box that all the products came in.



This is the description card that came inside the box. 



Content of box with retail value listed:

Health:

1 Our Skinny mini meal. Value = $2.25?? - I'm guessing on the price because you can't order these individually you have to order as part of a 1-4 week plan. 

2 weeks free unlimited barre3 at home workouts (for new members only). Value = $7.50

.5 oz. packet Kelapo Coconut Oil. Value = $1.05

7 Nature's Kick Honeystix in clover honey. Value = $1.99

Lifestyle:

.75 oz. Vaska laundry detergent. Value = $0.32

4 ml. Good Clean Love Almost Naked Lubricant. Value = $0.87

coupon for $15.00 off any purchase at Mineral Hygienics. 

The total value of the debut Momme box is $68.22.  I included the value of the coupon minus $5 because you have to pay shipping.  It's still a good deal though because you could get a mineral eyeshadow for $5 and they have great products.  There was a whole lot of fun stuff in this box.  The Kryolan products are professional grade makeup items.  I really don't have a lot of places where I feel the need to wear professional grade make-up so it may be awhile before I use this.  I absolutely love the way the Vaska laundry detergent so I will gladly accept any and all samples of this.  I will give the Our Skinny shake a try but I don't think I would sign up for their weight loss program.  For me I find anything that restricts me from eating normal everyday food for breakfast, lunch and dinner doesn't work for me. Honeystix are super yummy for a quick sweet snack or to put in your tea.  I keep hearing about all the health benefits of using coconut oil and I've heard you can use it as a substitute for shortening. 

Verdict: This debut box has some cool stuff in it with a great value.  Can't wait to see what next month brings. 

**I am not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for Momme Box.  I purchase these subscriptions myself.
