Quarterly Co. My Subscription Addiction - #MSA01

Quarterly Co. is a slightly different kind of subscription box company.  It's not a monthly adventure but it's quarterly.  The way it works is you pick a "contributor" you would like to receive a curated gift from anywhere from $50-$100 and every 3 months you will receive your item in the mail from them.  With each shipment you receive the story behind why the items were chosen. This box is from Liz Cadman of My Subscription Addiction. Who better to curate a subscription box than a subscription box addict? If you've been getting subscription boxes for awhile then you know what makes a good box so I knew this would be a great box! 

Price $50 every 3 months. Option to purchase a one time box available for $50 plus $8 shipping.

This is available in the US only and ships from El Dorado Hills, Ca - although the box says it's packed in Los Angeles. 

The good:

Variety: There are lots of different curators to choose from.

Something different: This is definitely different from other subscription companies

Commitment issues? Don't want to make a monthly commitment but still want a treasure?  You can get a quarterly treasure. 

The not so good:

Don't like waiting: If you don't like waiting this may be torture for you. 


All the treasures!

Contents of box with approximate retail price:

Fig + Yarrow Cardamom + Coffee Body Scrub. Value = $22.00

Raw Naturals Candle in Chai Latte. Value = $24.00

Simonetta Infinity Knit Scarf. Value = $25.00

Tatcha Polished Classic Rice Enzyme Powder. Value = $65.00

Juice Beauty Reflecting Gloss in Fig. Value = $15.00

Coupon to try Just Fab for 75% off making it just $10 for your first pair. - I won't be using this so if anyone wants it email me at pixiepowered@hotmail.com and I'll give you the code. It is a monthly subscription though and using this coupon signs you up. It's easy to skip or cancel but just be aware it's a monthly subscription. 

The approximate value of this box is $151.00. Just as I suspected, this is a great box in value and products. The first thing I love is that she added the website and price info for each item. I love a good body scrub and this one has a whole bunch of good for you stuff. Normally I'm not too excited about getting candles because I have a ton in my stash but this one is Chai Latte and I LOVE chai so I'm keeping this for sure. The infinity scarf is actually valued low because it's only sold to boutiques and Liz only had the wholesale price. So it's probably more in the $40-$50 range. It's a great size and thickness and I like the color a lot. I can't wait to try the Tatcha enzyme powder. I love exfoliating products and this one says it won't dry out your skin and it leaves it super soft. Not to mention it comes in a pretty bottle. I already have the Juice Beauty lip gloss so I may trade it or I may just keep it as a back up.  The Just Fab coupon is an awesome one but I won't be using it. I don't wear heels much anymore and haven't found any other shoes on their site I'm super into.

Verdict: MSA curated a terrific fall box, I can't wait for #MSA02.

These were all the color options. I was happy to get the blue/purple colored one. I feel like it screams fall and it's matches most of my clothing.

  1. Thank you so much for reviewing the box! I've been a fan of your blog for years (I think you are part of the reason I'm hooked on boxes) and it means so much to be reviewed by you! :)

    1. Me? You are the queen of subscription boxes. Your blog is so fancy and full of info it puts mine to shame. Not to mention you have your own subscription box - and what a great box! I can't wait for the next one, that wool throw looks amazing! I also love your swap site, I've been able to trade some of my stash for things I'll use.
