January Fancy Mystery Box

Recently Fancy announced that they were converting all of their curated boxes to the regular mystery box. So if you had any of the celebrity boxes or the food box they would now send you their mystery box in it's place. The only remaining subscription I had was the food box, which I loved, but decided to see to keep this box and see what happened. The price of the box is $39.00 plus $7.95 shipping making it $46.95 a month. Yikes, that is super high in my opinion BUT they do send some pretty high end cool stuff every now and again. 

Price: $46.95 a month. Ships worldwide from Devens, Mass. 

The good:

Fun products: Fancy carries a crazy assortment of products so you never really know what you're going to get.

The not so good:

Price: The price is crazy high.

Don't want it: That's a lot of money to shell out for stuff you don't want or will use. 

The February Fancy Mystery Box

This is the decal that is in the box.
This is a picture of the shirt. I didn't want to take it out of the package because I'm probably not keeping it.

Contents of the Fancy Mystery Box with price from Fancy (when available) listed:

Vinyl Impressions Work Hard Stay Humble. Value = $20.00

TKO F@3K the Time watch. Value = $95.00

evo Coalition for the Groomed Men's Grooming Kit. Value = $29.95

The Motley Gin Tonic Bath Salts. Value = $12.00

Paris CDG Shirt by Pilot & Captain. Value = $32.00 *NOTE Gaulle is spelled wrong on the shirt. Intentional or error?

The total value of the Fancy Mystery Box is $188.95. The first thing I noticed is Fancy must think I'm a man. The bath salts are listed as a men's product, the men's grooming kit, the watch is definitely something I think a man would wear more than a woman. I guess when the switch was made they just assumed I was a man. So I know I will use the grooming kit and the bath salts. I don't wear a watch and this watch is not something I would wear at all. I'm thinking I may be able to trade or sell it though. The shirt is cute and I may end up gifting that. The vinyl is not something I will use and as a matter of fact I received this exact same thing in my April 2013 Fancy Mystery Box. I think I ended up selling it on eBay pretty cheap. 

Verdict: Impressive value but just ok products. I'm changing preferences so let's see if that helps the box curation.
