Escape Monthly Premier Box and Review

Escape Monthly is a vacation in a box.  I did a giveaway for a box and was so interested in the subscription, I signed up.

The Details:
Cost: $49.95 a month.  Use the code YOURESCAPE to save 20% off your subscription.  Click HERE to order.

What's in the box? “Every month Escape Monthly lets you experience incredible destinations – from Tahiti to Rome and from Sicily to Barcelona. Inside, we pack incredible foods, relaxation tips and secrets, and the highest quality products focused on pampering oneself. Each box contains an assortment of deluxe items, plus completely unique content inspired by each destination (including local secrets weuncover)! ”

What box do I get when I sign up?  If you sign up before the 15th of the month, you will get this month's box.  If you sign up after the 15th, you will get the next month's box.

How do I cancel?  Fill out a contact Escape form on their website.  You must do this before the 24th of the month to avoid another charge.

First Look

The box arrived by USPS and was fairly heavy.  My box was shipped on the 19th by Priority Mail and I received it on the 21st!  I love it when my boxes come quickly.

A peek inside
The box was very heavy, so I was excited to see what was inside.
The information card
Escape Monthly does their information cards a bit differently.  They have a custom travel brochure as their information card.  The brochure is just like one you would pick up at a travel center.
A look inside the brochure
Each of the products in the box is listed in the brochure as part of the itinerary.  I found this very unique and cleaver.  There is also some facts about Napa listed on the back
Napa Valley Wine Soap $8.95

This soap is 100% natural and is made with grapeseed oil, herbs and beeswax.  All of the items in the soap were gathered locally.  The soap smells nice.  It doesn't have a strong perfume smell, just nice smelling soap.

Mixture Lucious Lip Balm $4.99

I love lip balm and always tend to loose it.  I will throw this in my purse.  This is produced by hand in small batches.  It is never tested on animals.

Deluxe Floating Bath Candles $5.95 for 2
These are beautiful and I have never tried floating candles in my bath tub.
L'Ecuyer's Gourmet 3 Butter Chocolate Mint Soap Sample Size .25 oz

This is one of the surprise mystery items in the the box.  The product retails for $4.00 a bar.

Suki body Butter Cream Salve Sample

This is made with organic lavender extract and organic cocoa butter.  This is a multi functional, non greasy therapeutic organic balm.

Cookie Zen: Cookie and Cork Pairing Essentials $7.95
There are 5 lemon cookies in the box.  These sound delicious.
Clearly Natural Essentials Unscented Glycerine Soap 2oz Sample  The 4oz bar sells for $1.99

This was another bonus item.  I am not a bar soap person, so I will probably gift this to a friend

Mineral Essence Dead Sea Bath Salt $4.44

These are in the scent lavender/vanilla and are designed to bring deep relaxation.  I have 2 kids under 5, so I could use some deep relaxation once in awhile.

Tiesta Loose Leaf Tea in Sparkling White Grape $7.99
I don't drink tea but my husband does.  I will let him take this to work.
All Natural Loofa Bath Sponge $2.50
I have been wanting to buy one of these, so I am really excited to get one in this box.
Moon Handbook: Napa and Sonoma $16.96

This is a very informative book about the area.  I have AAA,so I get free travel books.  I will probably give to the next friend that goes to Napa.

100% Pure Juicy Sugar Bath Candles $15.00
This is made with natural ingredients and energize your skin and leave it feeling smooth.
7th Heaven Natural Face Mask $2.99
I have received these in another box, and I haven't' used them yet. I am going to try to use one soon.
$50.00 Naked Wines Gift Card
This isn't an actual gift card.  You have to purchase a case of wine to use this and Naked Wines doesn't ship to my state.
The Whole Box
Final Thought: The total value for my box was $77.72.  I paid $49.95 (minus 20% off), so I feel like I got my money's worth.  I like most of the the items in my box (minus the tea and wine gift card that I can't use).  I am not going to continue my subscription though.  I get many many boxes, and I can't afford to keep them all.  This would be a great gift subscription for someone.  Next month's location is “Oregon, The Lush Pacific Northwest”.  Use the code YOURESCAPE to save 20% off your subscription.  Click HERE to order.  What do you think about Escape Monthly?
