Hey guys, you should already know my bias for this monthly subscription service. If you dont that means your new to my blog and I want to say welcome and check out their page so you and your family can recieve a box of goodies every month for $19.99! Here’s my referral link Degustabox!(I get points towards a free box if you use it but you don’t have to!) Now on to the contents of this December 2016 box with photos gallore 😊
I will just tell you in writing just in case it is to hard to see the rest. A huge bag of Butter Popcorn by Wise, Smuckers Fruit and Honey spread in Strawberry Jalopeno 😍, Urbane Grain 3 minute meal, A box of GOOD THiNS, A box of Ricola Lozenges 😍, Kala Beautiful Beans in Simply Peppered and Honey Acres Honey Straws!
Just an awesome box!!! Every month Im pleased with the items I recieve from them and they have great customer service. I missed last months box then encoutered an issue with my account and they fixed it and sent me three snacks from last months box I have not listed. They are 2 Nib Mor bars in the flavors Dark Chocolate with Blueberry and the other with Cherry. The third item is Oloves Basil & Garlic pitted olives! Much appreaciated 😊 (p.s. everything has an expiration date in 2017)
I will share my LO’s Koala Crate for the month of November next post! Until then stay cute/Kawaii Later ✌
Hey everyone! I have been feeling under the weather and busy being the great mom that I’am (pat on back). But, I wanted to stop and chat since I happen to be up this morning sipping on tea. I want to share how I wont be subscribing to many boxes in the future. I have been rather bored and/or dissapointed by many these past few months and when watching others do unboxings on youtube I sense they feel the same way but hey they are getting the boxes for free or getting paid to do the unboxing videos. I dont fall in those categories (referral link points towards free boxes do help but are not consistent for me anyway) and Im not hating on them but I have just decided for myself what I like much more. Mystery unboxings that are sometimes worth my wild or me growing my cook book portfolio which is just a hobby now but one which serves many purposes now and will in the future if I choose to publish it. I love cooking, baking and taking photos of my finished work. I love the look on my LO’s face when he gets his plate or comes running into the kitchen asking to help me prepare a meal. Because of this the only subscription I will keep for sure is the Degustaboxus! I absolutely love this Food subscription box that is worth your $19.99 every month and I have expressed such in prior blog posts. I have also shared the link to my youtube unboxing vids so if you want to check those out take a look at my prior blog posts. I also will keep the Koala Crate by Kiwi Crate for sure! The teacher in me just loves this!
On another subject but related to mystery boxes, I use the influenster app where all you do is discover new items/products that others review and talk about or review the items you yourself have used. In addition you may or may not recieve a vox box (mystery box) featuring a product or two for you to try and review on their app. And this month as every month there are objectives/Campaigns. This month speacial attention is being given to Mens Health! The name for theme is Movember! If you click on the highlighted above (mens health) you will be able to check out the app influenster! By participating in sharing or posting according to the rules of the campaign you may qualify to recieve a mystery box. I have recieved samples of Tresemme shampoo and conditoner….not sure if I posted about that here but I loved the product! I and many others hope to receive a actual vox box so I try to increase my chances by sharing the link which I have done above!
What else can I share….hmmmm…..ah I may give that Try the World box another chance at impressing me merely because I’am a foodie! And before I started this blog I had subscribed to a box called The Nature Box and may resubscribe to them for healthy snacks for my LO. Okay, well it was nice chatting with you guys. Until next time….✌
Hey everyone! It has been a while since my last post omg Im so sorry I kind of fell off there…😳 BUT IM BACK 😆 I recieved the “MyBestBox” for October 2016, the “Try The World”snack box and the “Loot Anime” box. I have to say I was disappointed in them all. I recorded my unboxings of them and didn’t even bother to upload to my youtube account. I’ll briefly discuss why I was let down. In regards to the MyBestBox which is suppose to be a lifestyle box I got the box for October that was clearly an ALL ABOUT THE FEET box. So the episom salt, gel soak, toeless socks, nail clipper set, foot cream, polish or nail conditioner, toe dividers and snack bar did not blow me away. But they were all useful so Im grateful for that. And believe I should have paid the extra bucks for the clearly exposed boxes other than this one they had to choose from I would have been happier with an variety of useful items without targeting one body part. Due to this I give them a 7 out of 10 with 10 being the best! Packaging, Presentation and the number of items made it worth your wild but I just had other expectations. If you want to see what kind of box you would recieve feel free to check out my prior posts with all their links and etc and enjoy! Sometimes the mystery, suspense and surprise is enough. And they are an box that targets lifestyle so Im sure now that an all about the feet box has been done things will be much more interesting!
Now onto the Try The World box that I recieved earlier today and left a comment on their facebook page regarding my dissapointment. Of course life is not perfect and etc and I did get to order my first box for $4 but that does not mean quality should be compromised! Why did 3 out of 5 of my snacks have a BEST BY 12/2016 DATE and it is a month away from 12/2016…I dont know but that really bothered me. Espeacially when one of them had no best buy date or expiration date at all…. yeeeaaaaa. *(Correction, it did and it was for 2017 so that was a relief!)* Im just going to say that the couple of treats we did eat both in the cookie category were delicious and Im just happy I did not pay $19 or more for this box or I would have been more bothered. Overall, I would recommend them if you don’t mind waiting an additional week or two for your box due to possible customs or whatever reason the box may be delayed. (Trust me I understand things happen but this was just not what I expected for my first box) Getting snacks a month away from being considered NOT so “fresh” or “best tasting” according to the best by date, or being unable to get in contact with someone from their customer care department (If they even really have one) Ah, and paying $19 plus shipping possibly. Im not sure there box every month would be worth it but the experience if the above was improved would make it worth it. Presentation of their box and the card with info of contents in box was a 10 in my book! (10 being the best) Overall, the box was a 7. (Mainly because I know few people would be bothered by the 30 days away from being considered unfresh date.)
Last but not least we have the Loot Anime box! I recieved an apron that will get used, a ramen bowl that has a ton of restrictions and a Manga…thats all I cared about. Everything else was irrelevant to me. I still wish they gave pins like the other boxes vs phone charms but what are you going to do?
Well….that was my brief update of my dissapointment with my October subscription boxes! I shall be back later to insert pics so make sure you check back!
