May Blissmo Box - Ashley Koff Approved Travel Kit

The Blissmo box is a monthly subscription service geared toward organic & eco products that are described as safer and better for you.  Each month they offer different boxes to choose from which vary based on themes or seasons. They offer various pricing structures depending monthly, 6 months or yearly.  The base price is always $19.95 but for monthly subscriptions add $4.95 shipping ($24.90 a month) and for 6 months subscriptions ($119.70) shipping is included. The company advertises that you will receive between $19-$40 worth of items for your $19-24.95.

Each month they send you an email with a choice of 2-3 boxes to pick from.  I've never had an issue of them running out of the box I want but I usually pick my box within a day or two of getting the email.  I have skipped the last two months but with summer travels coming I couldn't resist this box.

This subscription is available in the US only.

The good:

Like trying new things but not sure what to try? This is a good way to start trying new products without being overwhelmed or spending a bunch of money. 

Variety: They offer different theme boxes. 

Pricing: The company changed their pricing structure.  If you plan on subscribing yearly they give you free shipping. 

Information: They include a card with information about the company and their products.  Also on the card they list the value of each item received, I really appreciate this. 

Skip a month? Yes, now you can skip a month and you won't be charged. 

The not so good: 

I can't think of anything I don't like.


Contents of box with retail price listed:

(2) pack of Align 7 day probiotic. Value = $9.03/ea.

Nature's Path Gluten Free Granola Bar. Value = $1.09

Enzymedica Digest Gold. Value = $27.98

Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts. Value = $0.75 - I mixed these in my eggs before I cooked it into an omelet. I added texture without a lot of taste.

22 Days Nutrition 22 days bar in peanut butter chocolate chip. Value = $2.99 - The boyfriend thought this was ick. I thought it was ok but a little dry.

3 pk. Boiron Oscillococcinum. Value = $8.22

Natural Vitality CALM packets. Value = $2.99

Ultima Replenisher. Value = $0.79 - This was pretty good. It added a little bit of flavor to my water without being to strong.

Joyful Bath Co Oatsy Floatsie Soap. Value = $1.50

The total value of my box is $64.37.  I really had no idea what to expect from this box.  I didn't know if were getting travel foods, supplies, gadgets, etc. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened this box. I keep hearing about Align and probiotics so getting this will finally help me figure out what the talk is all about. I have a ton of calm drink mixes and hemp seeds right now. The Oscillococcinum is used to lessen the severity of flu like systems. This is a must have especially if you're traveling internationally.

Verdict: Blissmo box always has a nice variety of treasures in it.
