Let’s see what’s in the October 2017 Mommy Mailbox box!
Everything was shipped in a white box with the Mommy Mailbox logo on top.
A peek inside!
October’s box theme was “Survive” and it was curated by Tina Koral, a full time mom, subscription box owner, and breast cancer survivor.
An info card listed all of the items in the box, along with brief descriptions for each one.
A Mommy Mailbox exclusive item, this pretty scarf is made of 100% cashmere and is sooo soft! The color is a warm pink/peach shade and the edges are adorned with long fringe. I’m a little bummed that I’m not able to personally wear it (cashmere isn’t vegan), but I’m sure I can find someone who will be more than happy to take it off my hands. 🙂
This luxurious bar soap is handmade and triple-milled. It’s scented with notes of sugared jasmine, vanilla & sandalwood, and is enriched with nourishing ingredients including cocoa butter, shea butter, and olive oil. I was happy to see that it’s made without animal ingredients and doesn’t have an overly floral scent. Perfect!
Olive + Piper Earrings ($32)
These vintage-inspired stud earrings are adorned with marquise, tear drop, and solitaire crystals. Designed in Vancouver, they’re plated in 14k gold and have titanium posts. They feature a warm color palette of pink, brown, and white — allowing them to be worn with endless ensembles.
How pretty is this essential oil roller?! I love when actual parts of botanicals are included in the bottle. This all natural blend features dried rosebuds, rose essential oil, vetiver essential oil, lime essential oil, and coconut oil.
A pink, candy-coated treat of marshmallow flavored popcorn. While there is a pink ribbon sticker on the package, I couldn’t find any info as to whether any portion of its sales actually goes to supporting breast cancer programs. — Hopefully it does!
I really enjoyed this month’s survivor-themed Mommy Mailbox! They did a great job with the curation and everything (well, minus the popcorn) felt very luxe. The total retail value for October’s box (NOT including the scarf, which I didn’t have a value for) was just under $60! 🙂 — Remember if you’d like to subscribe, you can save $5 on your first box with coupon code “ROSE5“!
