Service Type: Monthly subscription service

About: These boxes contain a wide variety of different items - it's probably the most random of my subscriptions, though their boxes do have themes. Generally, you will receive a beauty item, a food item, and a jewelry item along with several other things. Their boxes are supposed to contain products worth at least $100 MSRP.

Individual Box Reviews: May 2013

Total HM! Score:

Content: 1 Based on the May 2013 box, the content was rather disappointing. Value: 4 Items in the box are valued at much more than the cost of the box, but this only matters if the items are useful/enjoyable. Uniqueness: 5 They do include a wide variety of things in their boxes, so it's always a surprise! Shipping: 5 Fast, received my box within the expected time frame. Customer Service: N/A I have not had to contact their customer service.  Perks: If you can get several referrals, you can end up with several free boxes!

Total Score: 4
