Cravebox Resolutions Box

Cravebox isn't a monthly subscription service they just send of boxes of really cool stuff if you are lucky enough to get picked.  Here's how it works.  Sign up on their website to be notified when a box becomes available they will send you an email telling you the drawing is open and what the price of the box will be.  If you choose to enter you will get an email about a week later telling you if you've been chosen or not.  They don't tell you what's in the box, just the theme of the box.   

This box offered is the first box of 2013 and is the Resolutions Box. The price of this box was $15.00. 

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.  It ranges from $10-$15 but they always tell you what it will be before you enter.  I've only had one box come in under the price paid.  

Referral program: If someone lists your user name as a referral you earn points which may get you a free box.  Also it's retroactive meaning you can add someones user name even if you signed up months ago.  I wish it were clickable link but it's very cool none the less. My user name is pixiepower. 

The not so good: 

I can't think of anything. 

Resolutions Box!

Wholly Guacamole chip clip
The total value of the Teen Time is $59.67.  I'm really excited about the coupons, especially the wholly guacamole one.  I can't believe the eye cream is $40.  Why is eye cream so expensive??  This is my second can of Pantene but I'm totally cool with that because it just means I don't need to buy mousse.  I don't really drink soda but I'm curious about these ones. I wonder if the 10 calories really makes a difference in the flavor between these and a diet drink.  I'm up to my eyeballs in tea but I'll drink them eventually.  

Verdict: This was a terrific box!  

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


  1. This is probably the best Cravebox I've seen!

    1. This was a good one! I just got an email saying I was picked for the Zatarain's box and they are party sizing my box for free! Can't wait to see what's in it.
