MonthlyExpress Subscription Box Review

Hello lovelies! TME has discovered a brand new subscription box. MonthlyExpress, having launched a mere four months ago, places them as the new kid on the block. So, let’s dive in to see what the new kid has to offer.

The first thing to note, regarding MonthlyExpress (ME), is that the brand differentiates itself from other box services with reference to being a membership-based service versus a “subscription” box. This distinction should be the first tell that MonthlyExpress is an elitist brand that considers itself above others and is attempting grand exclusivity or “status symbol” if you will.

We received the March 2014 MonthlyExpress edition, which is themed “Spring Into Action”. Starting with a “hand-written” note, signed by Tara and Travis Loring, which read “It’s Spring!!! Smile, you deserve this!,” and with this, the ridiculousness began. Enclosed within were an array of hand-selected items for home and body … five to be exact.

 March 2014 MonthlyExpress edition included:
  • Limited-Edition Storm Fragrance Beads by Calvin Klein
  • Sense & Sensitivity Mineral Mist by Between You & The Moon
  • Nourish & Replenish Oil by Between You & The Moon
  • Cucumber Under Eye Gel by Key West Aloe
  • Travel Bottle by Porcelain Company

Although each item was full-sized, in no way do the items quantify the $129 per month “exclusive” membership price. Our conclusion of the MonthlyExpress “membership” service? Delusional, elitist, sorority girls attempting to make a beauty box THE thing to have. If you want a decent subscription box that mixes lifestyle and beauty products, sign up for POPSUGAR!
