Subscription Box Reviews: BOXYCHARM, Little Lace Box, Try the World, Her Fashion Box, MEMEBOX #26, Wantable Accessories

I adore my monthly subscriptions, but not always the product accumulation. Being pretty stocked in makeup and skincare I kept one beauty box for September, Boxycharm and checked out two new fashion focused subscriptions, Little Lace Box and Her Fashion Box. With the MEMEBOX Special Edition #26 being all about hands and nails. Previously I subscribed to Wantable's beauty box but after being underwhelmed the last few times I switched over to give the Accessories box a try with my profile being strictly 'rock n roll'.

 Try the World is my first gourmet "foodie" box, this one takes you to Paris and let me tell you it was amazing! Even more amazing they're giving my readers 30% off your first box! Just enter code "MONROEMISFIT" at check out.

September's BoxyCharm theme is Fashion Week Fabulous. Giving you your own front row ticket to runway beauty, with a ton of products that will have you strutting your stuff in no time!

Boxycharm continues to be unbelievable in value. There are soooo many good full size, name brand products in this box. I don't know how they do it!

September BoxyCharm
tarte Lipsurgence lipgloss Blushing Bride ($19)
Coastal Scents Go Palette in Cairo  ($12.95)
NCLA Nail Lacquer Model Behavior ($16)
Tarina Tarantino Fleur De Lash Mascara - Limited Edition ($19)
Hello by Harvey Prince ($29)

This was the most awesome Boxycharm yet. The tarte lipgloss in blushing bride is a universally flattering medium pigmented mlbb pink with a moisturizing non sticky feel. Love adding to my growing collection of NCLA nail polishes, Model Behavior is a deep mocha grey cream. Can not wait to wear this one in October as a switch up between black and deep red's. I already had the Coastal Scents Go Palette, but its a great set of pigmented shadows all in Fall appropriate shades. The product I enjoyed most is the full size Tarina Tarantino mascara. I never expect much out of mascara's, especially with already having my favorite in Too Faced Better than Sex. This one is really nice though, it thickens and lengthens and separates well, doesn't smudge or budge. I've been reaching for it quite often. are the best beauty box out there.

Boxycharm ($21 mo.)

GrayMarket Design Scarf
Enumi Skin Care
The Sexiest Scent on the Planet. Ever. 
SoapBox Soaps
By Rosie Jane Leila Lou Roll on Fragrance Oil
Red Leaf Soap Bubble Bath Dough Lavender (pr only extra)

This was my first Little Lace Box and I enjoyed it! The Scarf was a beautiful textile that you can throw on with boyfriend jeans and a t-shirt. SoapBox black soap is made with activated charcoal, great for detoxifying your skin. Both of the scents smelled really nice, how fun is the name The Sexiest Scent on the Planet. Ever.? I only wish I wasn't allergic to perfumes because both this and the Roll on Oil smelled really nice. Haven't tried the Enumi samples, but I always like to give new lines a try. The PR Gift was Red Leaf Soap Bubble Bath Dough in Lavender. Red Leaf is a local Seattle company, that was awesome to see!  I added a little of this to my bath and the lavender scent is so relaxing. Little Lace Box is one I plan to check out again, it's not the same predictable items you seen in every box and I like that they feature new and up and coming designers. 

Inside Her Fashion Box is an Australian based subscription box featuring on-trend fashion accessories tailored to your style profile, as well as a number of carefully selected beauty products or deluxe size samples from high-end, boutique and cult brands from around the world.  Valued at over $110 in each box.

 Her Fashion Box has teamed up with designer's Love & Anarchy to create August's Box.
Inside the Her Fashion Classic Box
Love & Anarchy Leopard Clutch ($29.99)
Aurora Wrap Bracelet ($26.99)
Betwixed Ring Set ($15.99)
Tandem Ring Set ($15.99)
Glam by Manicare GlanEyes Bambi & Mila Lashes  ($11.95)
Beesline Lip Care ($5.95)
Azure Natural Organic s Midnight Bloom Vegan Body Butter ($24.95)
The Seventh Duchess Grace Organic Beauty Tea ($27)

The leopard clutch by Love & Anarchy has already taken its place as my new purse makeup bag, it's leopard so obviously. The tandem ring and the stackable silver rings were so my style, I would've bought these myself. Instead of just a little description card, you get a mini magazine showcasing each item that is in your box. Very impressive! I was glad they included that editorial magazine because I didn't quite know the wrap bracelet was a wrap bracelet. Wish I would've got a different color than orange though. How pretty are the GlamEyes lashes? I hadn't heard of this brand but they don't look like any of my current lashes which is hard to do. The Body Butter smells amazing and it's so thick and rich, and the beesline lip care will be useful now that it's Fall. I've never tried a "beauty tea" so I'm looking forward to brewing that up. I loved this box, it was very well put together and so trendy.  Her Fashion Box is an Australian subscription but it's open to International Subscriptions too :)

Even though I have a partnership with MeMe it's always a surprise because I never know which box I'm going to get. Somehow they always send me just the right one at the right time. The Special Edition Box #26 is all about hand and nail care. Now that my nails are looking a little better thanks to Neocell's Collagen I've been dedicating more time to them. This box comes packed with 7  full sized nail pampering products, carefully curated from Korea to give you the best experience and widest exposure to a range of products.

Pure Skin Hand Care Pack ($4)
SUR 3D Nail Art Kit ($29)
PURE PLUS Hydrogel Moisturizing Nail Patch ($8)
With Shan Dr. Care Set & Paper File ($13)
Barbine Shea Butter Hand Cream ($18)
Shara Shara Soft Hand Gommage ($6)
with Shan Baby Hand Set Treatment Oil

When I opened this I was happy to see it wasn't nail polishes but instead a focus on the care of your hands and nails. One of my previous meme's had a foot mask this one had a hand mask and even more interesting a nail mask.  You wear the little gel patches on your nails for 20 minutes to moisturize your actual nails, so neat!
The hand cream was thick, moisturizing, and my scent white lily smelled faintly of rose. I thought the other tube was a cream too, but it's actually a peel/exfoliator. This liquid peel is amazing! You can feel the dead skin shedding while working it through and your hands look and fee so soft after. Totally recommend it for the feet too! The two repair items are a cuticle softening nail oil that smells of lemon oil and a polish to strengthen and fix peeling nails, definitely needed these. SUR 3D Nail Art Kit is a magnetic set a polish color, nail art pen, and tool to create magnetic design effects.

 I wish these boxes didn't sell out so fast so you could get them when I review them, luckily there's so many more different ones to choose from and the themes often repeat.

Wantable Accessories Box ($36 or one time purchase $40)
I have very distinct taste when it comes to my jewelry and accessories, but I had success with both Jewelmint and Cate & Chloe's Jewelry subscriptions so why not. On my Wantable accessory box. profile I chose only that I liked Rock Style's..not classic or boho just give me my rock n roll. September's Box was centered around pieces that have a darker edge to them, perfect time to resub.
Dakota Scarf ($21)
Lexie Necklace ($18)
Mikayla Sunglasses ($18)
Sylvie Necklace ($32)

Now this is the Wantable I remember. Perfectly tailored to your tastes. I would describe everything in here as being classified as rock n roll and I loved every single piece.

I'm not much of a scarf person, but I really liked the black and white print of the Dakota Inifinity Scarf. The wavy pattern looks a little bit like an animal print, not too loud, and will go with black and white outfits.
Loved these Mikayla Sunglasses! They're a not too big cat eye shape in a cobalt blue with a quilted stud pattern engraved on the outter corners and sides. I have so many black sunglasses that this beautiful blue is a welcomed alternative. Even if the sun will be gone for the next 9 months.
Both of the necklaces were killer. The Lexie features a sleek, spiky pendant suspended for a long silver chain. The Sylvie has a heavy metal piece featuring a cascade of chains looping on a thick chain.

Will definitely be keeping Wantable around for Accessories instead of makeup now. Loved this one!

Try the World sends out gourmet boxes every two month's curated from a different country. This box was AMAZING. I have long wanted to visit Paris and opening and tasting through this box was like taking a vacation without ever leaving your house. Every single thing was delicious and felt so authentic.The Fig Preserves was delish and the sea salt is some of the best tasting finishing salt I've ever used. The candies I passed along and everyone said they were amazing. Looking forward to breaking in to the Hot Cocoa next month. The most interesting was the Chesnut Cream, it comes in a tube. It tastes very sweet like something you'd put on cookies or pastries and not as weird as it sounded.

Of any food and travel boxes this is crem de la creme, you get so many high quality tasty products for the price and a true feel for the food culture. Nothing is wasted on samples or brochures. I plan on giving this box as gifts for Christmas, I think a lot of people would really enjoy this one. It's so exciting discovering tastes of new places and cultures this way, I totally want Tokyo next!
