February 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.  This box started as monthly subscription but they changed that up and said they will start shipping seasonally which I'm guessing will be four times a year.  This was the last month of the monthly box and the next box will ship in May with a theme of May Flowers. The price of the subscription remains the same at $20 a month or you can sign up for a seasonal subscription (4 seasons or more) at $15 a season.  With the seasonal subscription you are initially billed $15 for the first season and $15 for each season thereafter.  Each season will have a theme to the box and you can actually look on their website to see what all the themes are for 2013.

This subscription is only available in the US but if you're international and interested they advise to email them at hello@mommebox.com

The good:

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

Recurring: Unless you opt for the seasonal 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 are committed to 4 shipments if you go that route.

This is the box that all the products came in.


These are all the products that came in the box.  The theme for this months box is: Share the Love so there were two of everything in the box. 
Content of box with approximate retail value listed:

(2) .17 oz. Blossom Organics Arousal Oil. Value = $3.41/ea.

(2) .07 oz. Blossom Organics Natural Moisturizing Lubricant. Value = $0.36/ea.

(2) packs with 2 pcs each Guylian Belgian Chocolate. Value = $1.09/ea.

(2) packs with 3 note cards each of KindNotes. Value = $1.49/ea.

(2) Zymbol necklaces. Value = $28.00/ea.

(2) Myrtle & Flossie Organic Flower Power Soap Sample. Value = ?? (this is a really small sample)

Coupon for 40% off Truth Art Beauty Product

$25 gift card for Myrtle & Flossie. - They have items under $25 so this is great!


The total value of the Momme box is $93.70 including the gift card.  I get the idea of the necklaces and they look nice but it's not something I will wear.  I'm surprised they included the Blossom Organic products in a sharing box.  I'm not sure I want to tell my friend "hey, here's an extra sample bottle of lube I want to share with you".  The chocolates are good and the soap sample I will use.  I will probably order from Myrtle & Flossie so being able to sample their soap before I order is nice.  The note cards are super cute and I'll use those at some point.  I'll probably use the Truth Art Beauty coupon also because you can customize bath salts on the their website and I love bath salts!

Verdict: The value isn't as high as the first box but I will use the products in this box so I'm happy.

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