Cravebox! December 2011

22 Dec

As if Birchbox, GoGoGirlfriend, Julep & the New Beauty Test Tube weren’t enough, I’ve added Cravebox to my arsenal of beauty sampler subscriptions. What I like about Cravebox is that it’s not limited to just beauty stuff. They include food and home products as well, pretty much anything that is “crave-worthy”. The very first Cravebox shipment, the December “Holiday Pamper Me Box” contained a little mix of everything!

Here is what was included:

  • Mèreadesso® Beautiful Body Balm
  • Baci Truffles
  • Perugina Chocolate Bar
  • OPI Nic’s Stick
  • 2 packs of BIC for HerTM Retractable Ball Pens

I enjoyed everything! The chocolates were deeeelish, my feet adore the body balm and I have a serious weakness for purple pens. I’m a pen junkie :) I definitely feel like i got my money’s worth from these items.

Cravebox was started by a popular women’s panel, SheSpeaks. That was actually one of the main reasons I wanted to subscribe. It’s $10 per month, free shipping, typical of most monthly beauty subscriptions. The website is still in beta mode, so they don’t really have an account area for their members yet. You pay and keep track of your subscription with Google Wallet. After my December purchase with Cravebox, I noticed that my order page said my subscription to Cravebox was good until March, 2012. I’m not sure if I will need to re-sub again in three months if I choose to continue. Most services just keep you subscribed indefinitely until you cancel.

Oh FYI, they ran out of December boxes pretty quickly. I signed up the day they went on sale, so if you want January’s Cravebox, be quick on the trigger! You can go to and sign up to be notified when the next box goes on sale.
