Yesterday I was excited and surprised to see an O's Circle of Friends box in my mailbox. Maybe things are looking up for this subscription.
Oprah: Pretty much everything associated with Oprah turns to gold.
Price: Three different price levels.
The not so good:
Value: So far I'm not seeing the value in the premier membership.
Inside the box was a card saying this is a test and keep product.
Inside the box.
Contents of the Test and Keep box:
AMLA Legend 10-in-1 Silky Blow-Out Elixir. Value = $9.99
Carol's Daughter Monoi Repairing Collection 3-piece starter kit. Value = $26.00
The total value of this test and keep box is $35.99. I am super happy to get products like this. I am very much into trying new hair products and I use heat styling several times a week so these products are perfect for me!
Here are the items I've received so far with this subscription:
One year subscription to O Magazine print & digital. Value = $16.00
(2) Gift subscription to O Magazine. Value = $16.00/ea.
Keepsake Gift Box of luxury items. Value = $122.27
Surprise Gift (Sequin Bangle). Value = $28.00
Test (and keep) product (Tips and Toes Kit from Burt's Bees). Value = $13.00
O's Little Book of Happiness. Value = $17.99
GlossyBox Test and Keep Box. Value = $42.76
Test and Keep Box with hair products. Value = $35.99
The total value I have received is $308.01. By my calculations I should be getting more items totaling $288.99 coming my way in the next 5 months if they want to honor the $597 value promised.
Verdict: This is probably the most disappointing box I've ever subscribed to. I expected more or at the very least what was promised since it was associated with Oprah. I was excited about this delivery though so maybe things are looking up.
