The Six Box Review + Unboxing | December 2016

the six box review
The Six Box is a monthly care package for military spouses and significant others. The premise being that often military spouses live far from family or have a spouse that's deployed, and while they're taking care of everyone around them.... who's looking out for them? This reverse care package does! The Six Box name comes from the phrase, "Got your Six" which essentially means got your back. Each themed box contains things like prints, snacks bath and beauty and each box contains a journal with prompts. Subscriptions are $35.95 monthly or you can buy individual past boxes in their shop for $39.95

*product was received free for review

Here's the Box Breakdown

Our first glimpse inside The Six Box.

Everything that we received in our December The Six Box. The theme for December is "All I Want" 
What a pretty and fun assortment of items!


So what is all this stuff?


Our box insert describes this month's theme 
While we want to be close to family or our spouses we'll have to make due!

The back details each item that was included in this month's box


Each Six Box contains an exclusive journal that focuses on the month's theme. This one contains a few different prompts to get us to think more introspectively

This page encourages you to think of ways to show the people that matter most how much you care about them!



One of our favorite people - Buddy the Elf with one of his iconic quotes. This just couldn't be cuter! Perfect addition to our holiday decor.


parlo cosmetics lip tint
$6
This all natural lip balm leaves just a hint of color while hydrating your lips. 

The color is subtle and the formulation is lightweight. It doesn't really have a noticeable smell either. We really like this! 


lake champlain chocolate
These seasonal and tasty little chocolates are a decadent way to treat yourself! Made with 54% Cocoa and with real bits of peppermint strewn throughout make these little chocolates quite the tasty confection! Handmade in Vermont in small batches


know & bow wrapping paper
$6
Perfect for wrapping up those small items - there were two styles of paper included in this package. A total of four sheets total were included on newsprint paper

The poinsettias are particularly whimsical and fun! We love the hand drawn style of both of these patterns


heirloom soy mistletoe candle
$7.99
This 3.3 ounce jar of Mistletoe Candle in soy wax is a complex aromatic experience that has notes of berry and apple but with a heart of Siberian Pine. Infused with natural essential oils like Fir Needle, Cedarwood, Fir Balsam and Tree Moss.

It smells incredible even without being burned!


And of course... this beautiful box was complemented by a beautiful holiday card!


So in summary


We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Six Box is a beautiful pampering package for people who really need it. We love the exclusive items and the really aesthetic element of the items included. The presentation is great. Everything arrives exactly as it should. The quality is phenomenal, all wonderful products by small businesses and curation is outstanding! Each of the items not only fits the theme but also adds more to the smiles that The Six Box is sure to bring! This box is an excellent gift (even if it's to yourself)
