Cravebox - May (my first!)

I have been coveting Cravebox for months! I missed the initial signup, and was sad about it for months, but finally got a subscription after they raffled some off!

Cravebox is another monthly subscription program. Unlike most of the others, however, it does not limit itself to a category. Cravebox sends out a variety of products ranging from beauty products to food to household cleaning items to office supplies. In the past, they've sent out everything from fun colored markers to pedometers and expensive skin care. They send out both full sized products and samples. I love variety, so this is an awesome subscription for me. Cravebox is $10 a month and send out an average of 5 products in each box.

I received my Cravebox about a week ago and I've had a chance to enjoy everything in it! So, here's what May brought.

The first thing I noticed was how big and heavy the box was! It weighed almost 3 pounds and shipped quickly once I got my shipping confirmation. I was so excited to see this on my porch!

Upon opening it, I was excited at the cute packaging! The contents were covered with a single pink sheet of tissue paper, which I saved for future wrapping/packaging needs. I like that it's all in one box, saving some resources.

Okay, how cute is this confetti? I love the colors, saved this as well.

As with most services, we received a card listing the contents and the theme! This month's theme was "A Taste of the Tropics", perfect for summer.

The first thing I pulled out was this sample of Lipton Tea&Honey in Mango Pineapple! I love drink packets like this - I keep them in my bag and use them at work. I am a huge tea fan, so I was really excited to try this. The Mango Pineapple flavor is delicious, super fruity and tropical. I have since bought a box of these and I've been drinking it daily at work! The packet also included a coupon.

We also got two packets of plum Amazins. These are diced dried plums, basically. I love dried fruit as a healthy snack, so I was happy to get these! I love that they are diced, makes them easy to sprinkle in yogurt or cereal. They tasted just like any other dried plums, and the convenient packaging made them easy to pack in my lunch bag.

I was excited to find this Skintersection Intense Repair Cream for cracking skin. This is a great inclusion for me, as my skin gets super dry in the summer. This is a full sized jar!

The texture is great - really thick, and not at all greasy. It doesn't really have a scent, and it seems to work well!

This is a full sized Shea Sugar body scrub by The Tree Hut! This thing is huge - 18 fl. oz. It smells awesome - Coconut Lime - and has a great, thick texture that isn't too oily, and it's super exfoliating without being too harsh. It leaves my skin super soft and smooth, and a little goes a long way, so this jar will last!

I love that The Tree Hut uses natural ingredients.

Finally, there was an item wrapped up like a present. I love when subs do this!

Mmm, Belgian chocolates! These are seashell shaped chocolate truffles. They got just a tiny bit melted in shipping, but barely enough to be noticeable and they still tasted awesome.

My favorite one was the seahorse. These had a super creamy texture, and I would love to have more of them, but they're crazy expensive.

Overall, my first Cravebox is awesome. I will use and enjoy everything in it, and with two full sized products, the value is great. There is currently a waiting list, but if you get a chance, this is a really fun service.

I love everything you got! And for ten bucks it is a great deal! I just cancelled a bunch of subs, but this one looks a little different and fun, so I think I will love it. Definitely getting on the sign up list.

I love the random assortment of things. I've been using the scrub and cream every day and I love them. :) Definitely worth the waiting list.
