Mommy Mailbox Review July 2017
Mommy Mailbox is a monthly gift that uplifts and rewards motherhood. Each box is curated by a different guest blogger, who shares a piece of her style with you by including her favorite goodies. Items are a mix of fashion, gourmet food, fitness, art, home décor and beauty. They kindly sent us this box for review.
Mommy Mailbox has been impressing me lately. Not only have their boxes been on point the last few months, but they are also stepping up their branding/marketing game. Here’s a little insider info when it comes to the world of subscription boxes. I have respect for subscription boxes who put in effort, have a marketing plan, and get themselves out there. What’s the best way to do this? Well, social media is the obvious one, but consistent/attractive social media pages are even better. What’s the next best way to do this? Spoilers, coupon codes, giveaways and interaction. Mommy Mailbox has been doing all of these things as of late and I am LOVING the change!
Anyways……here’s a closer look at the July box. We received a spoiler for this month’s box and I was SO looking forward to receiving it.
July Theme – Relax
Our feature blogger this month is ME! This July is a special month for me, as my husband and I are celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary this month. We aren’t going to be able to take a big trip to celebrate, but we are having a fun staycation with our only goal being to relax! I hope you enjoy the products for this month, as they are some of my personal favourites. Lord & Berry is an amazing Italian brand, Knoppers were discovered on a trip to Europe, Sarah’s Sprays are my signature perfume, and I just love this beach towel. Cheers!
Eeek!! I am already impressed!
Lord & Berry Eyeshadow
Lord & Berry, the makeup atelier from Milan, revolutionized makeup into an important fashion accessory. This eyeshadow is smooth as silk.
This is my least favourite item in the July box so I figured we would get it out of the way first. But with that being said, I LOVE the brand, and trust me when I say…..if I could pull off this gorgeous blue color I would!! I’m just not talented enough to wear bright eyeshadow colors like this. I guarantee some subscribers are going to love this item though.
Lord & Berry Lip Gloss
A SKIN lip gloss that glides on for a beautiful sheer color and luminous shine, delivering lip-quenching protection from vitamin E.
I am kind of loving the fact that we received two items from one brand. I like to be able to test out multiple items from one brand as it gives you a better first impression than if you were to just test one. This particular shade is much more my speed than the eyeshadow. I feel like this will be pretty now, and even better in the Fall.
Sarah’s Sweet Scrubs Room & Body Spray
Sarah’s boutique of natural beauty products is handmade on the garden island of Kaua’i in Hawaii from essences native to the island. Once you smell this you will want to book a flight immediately.
This item is absolutely perfect for me. It’s handmade, natural, has multiple uses, and a tiny ingredient list. It smells like Summer…..so good! Ashley and I will be fighting over this one. Use it as a body spray, perfume, room, linen spray, or car refresher.
Mommy Mailbox Exclusive Beach Towel Roundie
We had these microfibre beach towels made just for you because they are fantastic for the beach, pool or picnic.
This is where it gets exciting! I am in love with this roundie! It was our spoiler for the July box and I was blown away when I saw it. It’s on trend, it’s absolutely gorgeous, and it will appeal to all different style preferences thanks to the classic black/white color combo. I’m tempted to say this is one of my favorite subscription box items we have received this year. They did an absolutely wonderful job sourcing this product.
Knoppers are a chocolate, milk and hazelnut wafer that have been a long-time favorite snack in Europe and the rest of the world. We are so excited they have finally made their way to the U.S.
Lastly we have our fun little treat for the month. It’s the perfect size, and will be the perfect little treat when I am craving something chocolatey.
Mommy Mailbox Review July 2017 – Final Thoughts
I think this just might be my favorite Mommy Mailbox to date, and we’ve received some pretty great boxes over the last few months. Not only was I so excited to see them release a spoiler this month, I was also very excited about the fact that we received such a GORGEOUS summer towel. The July box had a personal touch seeing as the guest blogger was the owner herself. This was a great idea on her part because it’s nice for subscribers to get to know the face behind the box. Mommy Mailbox is really stepping up their game, and that’s what I like to see. Put in the effort and you will have a fan for life!
