Spring Momme Box - May Treats

What is Momme Box?  They started in December of 2012 and shipped out 3 months of boxes and decided to make their subscription quarterly. 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 of the subscription is $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.

                    
                                        The theme for this months box is May Treats.

Content of box with approximate retail value listed:

(2) GoGo squeeZ AppleApple pouches. Value = $0.66

$5 GymPact Gift Card. Value = $5.00

Loop'd & Hoop'd free mesh earrings ($25 value) with $30 purchase. Value = $0.00

(3) .10 oz. packs of MD Ultimate C Skin Brightening Serum by Susan Lin. Value = $11.50/ea.

(2) Nature's Bakery Fig Bars. Value = $1.25/ea.

(3) .04 oz. Yes to Cucumbers Natural Sunscreen SPF 30. Value = $0.16/ea.


The total value of the Momme box is $20.80. I was a little underwhelmed with this box. I expected their first quarterly box to be great but this was just ok. I probably won't use the gympact card - my schedule is so crazy I can't count on going to the gym ever, I just go when I can fit it in. I can't believe how expensive the serum is for a full size bottle. Through amazon it was $115 for 1oz. I love the Nature's Bakery fig bars but sadly they don't fit in my diet right now. I know the boyfriend like them though so I'm sure he will eat them. I'll put the sunscreen with the other one I got and pack it for my road trip and maybe I'll have enough to cover an arm.

Verdict: Undecided, the next box is summer beauty, home & fun. I may give that one a try and make it my deciding factor.
