January Moxie Box

I hadn't heard much if on the Moxie Box from Moxie Boutique too much but when I saw a deal on Living Social I took a chance. The deal is for 3 months of Moxie Box for $55 which makes each box $18.33 each. The way Moxie Box works is each month you will receive a box of accessories picked for you based on your response to the questionnaire you fill out when you sign up. The box could contain jewelry, scarves, shirts, wallets, etc. Each box has a retail value of at least $40.00. The price of the boxes start at $30 a month plus $2.99 shipping with discounts for 3, 6 and 12 month plans. 

I had a little trouble when I signed up. I didn't fill out the questionnaire because I didn't realize I could scroll through the questions. I know it sounds odd but I'm using a Mac and sometimes things work different on a Mac, not to mention I'm still learning how to use it. I went back and filled out the questionnaire so I don't know if this shipped before of after I filled out the form because I never received a confirmation email showing I signed up.

Price: $32.99 a month including shipping. Discounts for 3,6,12 months plans. 

The good:

Support Small Business: This is a small business based in Delaware. This really is a small store with a few employees who are boxing up your goods. 

Done with beauty products: Most subscription boxes are filled with cosmetics this one is not. 

The not so good:

Website: The website could use some work, it's a little difficult to navigate. 

Value: $40? I don't see it. 

Price: It's on the pricey side.

Contents of the Moxie Box with approximate retail value:

Purple Infinity Scarf. Value = $10.00??

Wicks + Wax Hazelnut Macchiato candle. Value = $8.00 - This smells so delicious, I can't wait to burn it. 

Moxie Boutique large black studs. Value = $5.00??

Moxie Boutique faux pearl studs. Value = $5.00??

The only thing I know for sure is the price of the candle which is $8.00. The scarf didn't have any type of tag on it so I don't know where it's from. The scarf is really pretty and I love that it's light weight but I wouldn't value it at more than $10 on the high side. The earrings are kind of plain and not very exciting. They don't say what the post is made of or if it's hypoallergenic so I would value the at $5 max. I feel like it's something you could easily find at a place like Claire's. The website says the value is at least $40 which would mean the earrings and scarf have a combined value of $32.00. The candle smells absolutely wonderful. It actually made me crave coffee.  

Verdict: I'm not too impressed with this box. Stayed tuned for the next two boxes.
