August 2014 Dottiebox Review – Full Size Box + Mini Box
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.
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.

I was sent the full size and mini boxes for review.
Dottiebox ships by USPS and comes in a white box. This is the full size box.
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.
The mini box came in a little brown box with the Dottiebox logo on the side.
Like the full size box, the mini box came with a list of the items in the box and faqs about the company.
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.
