Fun With Subscription Boxes

I love getting fun things in the mail. Periodically, I’ve signed up for one of those monthly subscription boxes…they have one for virtually every interest. I haven’t had one for awhile though, so last month I decided to treat myself and signed up for two.

One of them is called Lip Service.

I love lip balms, especially ones from sellers from places like Etsy. Ones with unique flavors and natural ingredients. I’m also a bit of a snob when it comes to lip balms; they need to have a very smooth, non-greasy texture or it’s a no-go for me. The first one they sent I ended up giving to mom – it had a nice smell, but was too grainy for me. This month’s was a keeper, though.

It smells just like cake, and is very smooth! I also like the surprise extras they include every month. Well worth the small fee.

The other box is a snack box. I’m always fascinated by candy/snacks from other countries, so I got the Universal Yums Box. Can you guess where the first box came from?

Love the packaging!

There was also information sheets about Russia, and about the snacks I was getting.  This would be such an excellent thing for a homeschool family!

The box is guaranteed to have at least six different snacks, and usually has more.

Reading the reviews of the Russia box online afterward, it seems to have been one of the least favorite boxes offered. I can say that there were definitely some strange and unusual flavors! The meat jelly one…ick.  But I did really like the grapefruit and chocolate, and the one with currants and marshmallow!

I’m looking forward to next month’s. If you’d like to give this box a try, sign up through this link, and you’ll get $5 off your box.
