FrenchBox - October 2014

FrenchBox is a subscription box that you receive each month in your mailbox. It contains 5 products from French brands: fashion, cosmetics, gourmet and others surprises! FrenchBox is the best way to discover or share the latest products from France. (website)

Really impressed by the box they use! It's nice & sturdy, like the one Glossybox uses. Definitely going to save this one to reuse!

Sothys contour concealer base. This was not on the info card either, but had a separate card. Guessing it was a late addition to the box?
Sothy's Make-up, a beautiful collection with glamorous color, for an ultra chic Parisian look.

Atelier Cologne
Atelier Cologne
I received Santal Carmin. I like perfume samples as they let me try new scents, but I really hate these little samples that make you pop the top to open the vial. I usually wind up getting the scent all over my hands because the top is hard to get off. True to form, this spilled all over my hand. Don't like the scent enough to take another handbath. Why can't all perfume samples be sprays?


So all in all, not a bad box. It's $24 per month, but new subscribers can get it for $14 using the code FIRSTBOX. I'm going to try one more month before I decide if it's a keeper or not. I love France and all things French, but it's a little on the expensive side for me.

Do you get FrenchBox? If so, I'd love to know what you think of it!
