January Escape Monthy Box - Colorado

Escape Monthly combines two things I love which are traveling and getting treasures in the mail. Escape Monthly ships every month and includes full size products, travel guides, secret tips and special offers. Each box has a destination theme and every month one lucky member will win a vacation to the destination.  The price of this box is $49.95 a month with shipping included. Right now they are running a deal on their website where you can get 20% off the price of the box for life. This means the monthly box will cost $39.95 a month instead of $49.95.

This box is available in the US only and ships from Lake Oswego, Oregon. 

The good:

Products: You get full size products from the region of that month. 

Referrals: They have an ambassador program that pays you via paypal for members you refer. 

Travel: They give away a trip every month to the destination. There is a card in one box each month telling you if you've won. 

Info cards: These are so important and theirs is fantastic. It includes product info and price as well as info about the destination. I have noticed that the prices they list is not always accurate. 

The not so good:

Skip: So far I can't find anything on skipping.  

Price: The price is quite high for a monthly box.

Colorado Escape Box

Contents of box with retail value: 

Colorado Travel book by Moon Books. Value = $19.99

Bluecorn Naturals Beeswax Travel Size Candle. Value = $4.99 - This has lemongrass in it and it smells wonderful. 

Bobo's Gluten-free peach oat bar. Value = $3.95

Chocolove Orange Peel Chocolate Bar. Value = $2.99 - yummy chocolate

2 oz. bottle Colorado Aromatics Mountain Mist Lotion. Value = $5.20

1.2 oz bag Jackson's Honest Potato Chips. Value = $1.25 - The boyfriend ate this and he ate the whole bag so they must have been good. 

Rocky Mountain Mud Bath in Stress Relief Blend. Value = $7.25

Whitegirl Salsa in medium tomatillo. Value = $7.99

Geode from Pikes Peak Rocks. Value = $1.99 - This was fun to break open. The teenager has a rock collection so I added this to it. 

The total value of this box is $55.60 or $35.61 if you don't include the book. I don't plan on going to Colorado anytime soon so I really don't have a use for the book. I thought everything else in the box was great. The candle smells yummy and perfect for traveling. The oat bar is super thick and feels soft. I tried a small piece of the chocolate bar and it was a good thing I was leaving the house otherwise I would've eaten the whole thing. I love me some bath stuff and this one says it won't stain the tub which I was worried about since it's essentially mud. I've been thinking about making something enchilada-ish so I will have in incorporate this tomatillo salsa in whatever I make

Verdict: I was thinking of canceling this box since it's on the pricey side but then I saw the next month destination is New York. I gotta check that one out!
