August 2014 Dottiebox Review – Full Size Box + Mini Box

August 2014 Dottiebox Review

August 2014 Dottiebox Review

Dottiebox, sent me these boxes to review.  Dottiebox is an artisan/indie subscription box that sends handmade goodies, coupons, and items from small businesses and indie brands.  I love handmade products and items from independent artists. I have found that handmade items, are better made in most cases, than commercial products.  There is also a mini Dottiebox that send 2-3 products for $10.00/month, plus $3.00 shipping.

The Details:

Cost: Dottiebox Full Size Box: $20.00/month  Dottiebox Mini Box: $10.00/month

Shipping:  Shipping is $6.00 for the full size box and $3.00 for the mini box.  They ship anywhere in the US & to APO addresses.

What’s in the box?  Dottiebox is an artisan/indie subscription box that sends handmade goodies, coupons, and items from small businesses and indie brands.

When am I billed?  You are billed within the first two days of the month.

When does it ship? Dottiebox subscriptions are sent out in the beginning of the month. Mini boxes are shipped the following week.

I was sent the full size and mini boxes for review.

Dottiebox sent some information cards about their box and a list of all the items in the box.

Uncomon Scents Candles “Sun Shower”: $12.00 This candle reminds me of Elizabeth Arden’s Sunflower.  It is a mix of Lily, Citrus and Geranium essential oils.

Maya’s Berry Medley Jam $4.00: This is a combination of Cherries, Strawberries, Blueberries, Blackberries, Raspberries, Pure non GMO Vegan Cane Sugar.  Perfect for a biscuit.

Gustus Vitae Condiments Taste of Tuscany:  This smells great and is a mix of Basil, Oregano, Red Bell Peppers, Garlic, Green Bell Peppers, Black Pepper, Fennel, and Rosemary.  This is recommended for pizza, chicken, mushrooms, and pasta.

Music City Suds Soap Sample: Music City Suds soaps are all natural, vegetarian, and handcrafted in Nashville.  I am not exactly sure of the smell, but it seems like it is peppermint or eucalyptus.

The full size Dottiebox had a total retail value of $23.99.  Read on for the mini box.

Naturally Kamdyn $5.00: I love hair ties.  These work great for my hair during workouts and no matter how many I get, I always loose them.

Moe’s Apothecary 4 oz Sugar Scrub “Coconut Lime”: $8.00:  My dislike for coconut is no secret, but this isn’t bad.  This is a mix of coconut and kiwi.  This reminds me of the beach for some reason.

The mini box had a total retail value of $14.00.

Final Thought: The Dottiebox full and mini boxes had great values.  Both boxes had a retail value over the price of the box.  My favorite item in the boxes was a the candle.  It smells amazing.  I liked the wide variety of items in the boxes and the quality of each item.  If you want to try Dottiebox, click HERE.
