I ordered the PENSPIRATION box.it was very cute, adorably shipped and the pens came in a cute simple “pen folder.” I got 4 or 5 pens and ink refills for 2 of them. They were brands and pens I hadn’t heard of or seen before, which was exciting. Unfortunately the pens were pretty hit and miss (or maybe I’m just very particular.) I liked two of them (the ones with the thinnest tips) but honestly won’t end up using the others — they were too thick for me and a couple of them easily smudged.
That said, it was a great way to get some new pens and probably I’ll subscribe a month here or there unless I find a better pens-only box.
These socks are ADORABLE and SOFT.
Honestly, I figured I'd probably do one or two boxes and then cancel, but I love these socks and look forward to them each month.
Tried this for one month for my best friend and it just wasn't our cup of tea. Lots of cheap trinkets, very girly, and if I hadn't had a 50% off code it would have been a huge waste of money.
I absolutely love this box -- by far my favorite sub box that I've tried. I subscribe to the MindWander mini and it never disappoints! This is a self care box that is TRULY about caring for yourself (and the effort that entails). Each box/mini comes with a themed workbook to help you stay on track and really work on whatever the current theme is (fear and anxiety, happiness, self-love & compassion, etc.) along with an assortment (usually about 2-4 items in the mini box, if you count the journal/challenge cards that come each month) of related items. I've received a few essential oil rollers, face masks, soaps, and occasionally a little notebook, card holder, or something else.
For me, MW is a little heavy on the bath products (as are a LOT of self-care boxes), but to be honest I don't even buy this box for the stuff, cute and cool as it all is. I buy it for the workbooks, journal prompts, encouragement from Dr. Sarah and the online Facebook community. If you just want a box of stuff this is cute and you may still love it, but the real value and power lies in the CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) aspect of the box. Unmatched.
This is kind of pricey for me, but I figured I could swing getting the box 2-3 times a year (was thinking August and January for sure), and tried it out this month. Unfortunately I’m just not as impressed as I hoped. There are a few items I really liked (especially that headband!), but on the whole the box is a little too pamper-heavy for me (I don’t see myself using the bath bomb and am not big on scrubs either), and I was unfortunately less-than-impressed by the art print. (But maybe it’ll grow on me...)
I think this is one I’ll just have to pass on in the future.
