August Momme Box

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.

                    
                                       

Content of box with approximate retail value listed:

(4) packets of OCuSoft Baby Eyelid & Eyelash Cleanser. Value = $0.75/ea.

Coolibar coupon for 15% off. Value = $0.00

NYR Organic coupon for 10% off. Value = $0.00

HowAboutWe for Couples gift certificate for 3 months,membership. Value = $54.00 - only avail in New York and San Francisco

Naked Wines gift card for $60 towards purchase. Value = $40.00 - I can't use this because I'm already a member. 

Yoga Download. Value = $7.00-$11.00

The total value of the Momme box is $14.00 - $108.00. For me the value is $14.00. This was probably the most horrible box I've ever received!!! So much so that I canceled it within 10 minutes of opening it. The included card talks about NYR's wild rose beauty balm and muslin cloth but they only sent a coupon. Really??  How About We sounds promising but it's only available in 2 cities out 3000+ cities in the United States. I'm pretty sure this will be useless to most people. I can't use the Naked Wine gift card because I've already used one and they only let you use it once. I have no use for the baby eye cleaner but I'm hoping it will work to remove some makeup.

Verdict: This box is a dud! I canceled.

  1. I agree! It was awful! I have never been angry before after opening a box but I sure was after opening this one! Big waste of my money!

    1. I can't believe they thought it would be ok to even send this out. I sent an email to cancel and it took about a week for them to respond but I'm not canceled. I thought it was interesting that they didn't even ask why. I wonder how many complaints they received?
