FrenchBox - May 2015

What is FrenchBox?: FrenchBox is a bimonthly subscription box that lets you discover France in your mailbox! Each box delivers at least five beauty, lifestyle and food products. Items are full sized, deluxe sized, and sample sized, but all are brand name items!

How Much is FrenchBox?: FrenchBox is $36/box. You can also buy old boxes that are still available, either for full price or at a discount. Sometimes there's even the option to build your own box here.


The box it ships in is adorable and pink, exactly what I think of for France. It's also a super high quality box and doesn't seem like it would fall apart in shipping.


Inside the pink shipping box is another box, this time with the actual products inside!


Everything comes wrapped in paper and the tied with a bow. At this point, I was in love. There's not a theme card included in the box. Instead, they send you a link to an information page on the day that your box arrives. To see the information for the Cannes Box for May, click here

FrenchBox Postcard (Exclusive) - I love this card with a great Harry Winston quote, and I love that it's a postcard to send to someone (or to collect for yourself). I'll be keeping it for myself, it's too cute to get rid of.


35mm Education Filmstrip in a Keychain ($8.00) - I looked mine up, and found out here. This is such a cool idea and definitely something that wouldn't be found in most boxes.




Authentic French Rivera Postcard ($10.00) - All cards included this box were from 1900 to 1960 and mine has this amazing print. I can't read the card, but it's so beautiful that I can't be bothered by that. If people can read/understand, let me know! :D


Fab & Co 2 Perfume Soap (Lavender & Milk) ($8.00) - I'm not sure why, but this soap just made the box smell like France. It reminds me of something my grandmother would have used and it smells so great. The soap is traditionally made in France and is organically made - LOVE! Fab & Co has a ton of different scents that all sound great!


Palme d'or Bookmark ($8.90) - The Palme D'or is the most prestigious award in the Cannes, This is a bookmark, but it can also be put on a necklace to wear it around daily. I'll use it as a bookmark, because I can never seem to find enough. It's nice and doesn't feel flimsy!


Payot Body Scrub ($4.13) - This is a body scrub cream, and scrub it does! It has 'stuff' in it, and it smells amazing as well. I did a mini test on my hand, like I always do, and now that one patch of my skin is super soft and smells amazing.


Institut Karité Paris French Delice Shea Butter (Passion) ($14.00) - There's not a lot of color but it smells so great. There's a ton of options that I wish I could get here, sad part of trying out great French products.


Marilou Bio Organic Night Cream ($8.95) - I keep saying I want to use a Night Cream and keep finding an excuse to not do so, but this WILL be used. It doesn't smell chemical-y and I'll definitely use it, and I really love that it's organic. 


If I did all of my math right, this box was valued at $61.98, which is amazing. It's really great as soon as you remember that everything was actually imported from France, so taxes were paid as well. I absolutely loved this box and I'm so happy that I was able to review it. I will use everything, including soaps (which almost never happens) and will happily hang my postcards up to show off how amazing they are. If you are interested in getting this box, you can grab it here and make sure to sign up for your own subscription! As always, let me know what you thought of this box in the comments!
