January Robb Vices Box

Robb Vices is a monthly subscription box focused on exceptional products, food, accessories, etc. Each box is curated and comes with a booklet that tells the story of the items in the box. This box is for those who enjoy the finer things and appreciate the history or story behind it. I only say that because this box is not inexpensive. The price is $74.95 per month plus shipping. I subscribe to the Robb Report and very much enjoy reading it. If you subscribe to the magazine the offer a discount on the box. I researched previous boxes and liked what I saw so I subscribed.

Price: $74.95 per month plus shipping w/discounts for 3, 6, and 12 month subscriptions.

The Good:

Products: The products are high end, artisan and great quality. 

Information: The include booklet is a wealth of information on the products. 

Referral Program: Refer 3 friends and get a free box. 

Alcohol: Sometimes they include alcohol which I'm a big fan of. 

The Not So Good:

Price: The price is high for a monthly box of surprise items.

Auto-Renew. I don't care much for auto-renew especially on a box with a high price tag.

Verdict: I still love the Robb Vices box. Misfit Ray? What is Misfit Ray? It's a fitness tracker. I've used the Nike band and a couple of different fitbits but ultimately they didn't really last long for me. The products worked fine but I didn't like being tied to my fitness tracker so I wasn't too excited about this item. Next was the water bottle and again I wasn't too excited since I have LOTS of water bottles BUT then I read the box. This water bottle can be rolled up, perfect for travel AND it can hold hot liquids AND you can put it in the freezer AND it has a lifetime warranty! What?!? That's incredible. I'm a fan of this bottle. The Brode vitamins are advertised as electrolytes for fitness but they also are great when drinking to reduce hangovers. Yep that will be coming with me on vacation. I'm excited to try the Radice products, they sound so fancy and luxurious. I'm not too sure about the candle. It's very strong musky smelling. Not really my thing. 

Verdict: I still love the Robb Vices box.
