first look in the mommy mailbox for this month
Our first glimpse inside this month's Mommy Mailbox. The theme is "Glow" and is curated by Casi Densmore-Koon a Mompreneur and D.C. Based stylist.

what's in the mommy mailbox subscription
Everything that we received in our December "Glow" themed Mommy Mailbox subscription. We love the decadence of this mix of items. A festive array for holiday party season! 


So what is all this stuff?


Our box insert that tells us a bit about our curator and this month's theme

The reverse details each of the items that we received


glow for a cause facial nourishing cream
$38
We've been seeing this brand on instagram recently and are seriously excited we get to try out one of their ultra decadent, all natural, moisturizers. And as an added bonus each purchase from Glow for a Cause gives 5% back to one of their Partner Non-Profit Organizations

The consistency of this is like a body butter and is extremely nourishing. Our favorite part is the scent- a mix of bergamot and lemon and tangerine essential oils... it's refreshing and crisp. 


sweep oval brush
$15
Great for applying highlight and bronzer and also buffing liquid foundation we've been wanting to get our hands on an oval brush like this since they first started popping up all over! We'll definitely be using this in our makeup routine!


manna kadar beauty
$19
Unfortunately, ours came broken. When we reached out to Mommy Mailbox they sent an immediate replacement! This is the second time we've received a Manna Kadar item (different boxes) that was broken! We are starting to think Manna just wasn't meant for us!


jo's candies peppermint bark
You can't get much more festive than peppermint bark?! To say we were excited to devour this was an understatment!

Simply scrumptious! Dark chocolate on the bottom, white bark in the center and a layer of crushed candycane on the top... don't mind if we do!


olive + piper bracelet
$28
Add gorgeous sparkle to your holiday ensemble with this 14k rose gold plated crystal bangle. Love the simple and classic design and the rose gold finish, gives this bracelet vintage charm!

A simple band that dresses up almost any outfit - there was also a subscriber only coupon code included as well

And because there's no clasp getting it on and off is a snap!


So in summary


We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Mommy Mailbox Subscription Box is an excellent way to treat yourself to something nice each month, consider it a reward for all the hard #adulting you've been doing! The presentation is great - we are really happy that they were so understanding about the blush! The quality is awesome... we love that face cream and the bracelet! The curation is fantastic! We think it's so refreshing that each month introduces a new guest curator and a new theme... it keeps things new and we love the very chic feeling of this particular box!

As far as box economy the Mommy Mailbox costs $33.95 a month and for that we received $100+ in items which is an incredible deal!
