The Austin BatBox April 2016 Review

The Austin BatBox April 2016 Review

Austin BatBox is a subscription box that sends artisan and indie products from Austin, Tx in their monthly boxes.  Their name is derived from the large colony of bats that live in Austin,  I have a good friend that lives in Austin under the Congress Ave Bridge.  I have been able to see the bats at night, and it is something to see.  There are so many bats, they even show up on radar!  Austin BatBox is $29.99 a month and you do have to pay shipping.

The Details:

Cost: $29,99/month, $86.99/3 months, $167.99/6 months

What’s in the box? When you sign up for The Austin BatBox, you will receive 4-5 hand selected items from Austin, Texas every month!

When am I billed?  Every 30 days

Austin BatBox

Austin BatBox ships in a white box with their logo sticker on the side of the box.

Earth to Austin

The theme for April was “Earth to Austin”

Information Card

There was an information card with a list of everything in the box.

Artist of the Month: Justine Shih - Mini Coloring Book

Artist of the Month: Justine Shih – Mini Coloring Book $5,00 This 10 page hand drawn, handmade coloring book has pictures of the Austin Bat Bridge, peaches, Austin birds, mushrooms flowers and more.


This is a look inside.  This is the Austin Bat Bridge.

Potigy - Mini Up-cycled Succulent Potter

Potigy – Mini Up-cycled Succulent Potter $15.00 Potigy takes discarded paper and plastic material around Austin and turning it into home decor.  This little potter is actually a magnet!

succulent plant

This little pot was handmade and a succulent plant was placed inside.  You don’t need much water for these, even I can keep it alive.

Here is a look from above.

Essential oil wrapping

I like that many of the items were wrapped up nicely.

Maman Sucre - Hand Blended Essential Oil Roller Scent

Maman Sucre – Hand Blended Essential Oil Roller Scent $10.00 This is a blend of grapeseed oil, coconut oil, lavender essential oil, lemongrass essential oil.  This has a great smell and is very relaxing.

Zhi Tea - Temple Gunpowder No, 1 Green Tea

Zhi Tea – Temple Gunpowder No, 1 Green Tea $3.95 This tea is organic and free trade that has a nutty-oak taste.  The leaves are tightly rolled, which makes the teal look like gun powder.

Inventive Eco Organic - Elemental Mineral Mist Sample

Inventive Eco Organic – Elemental Mineral Mist Sample  $2.00 This mist is made of copper, potassium, and silver to firm skin, reduce wrinkles, and moisturize skin,  This also contains antiviral and antimicrobial minerals, which are healing minerals.


There was also a 10% coupon for ShopVintageTheory.com.


Final Thought: This box had a total value of $32.00, which was just over the cost of the box.  I love the Succulent from Potigy, it’s a plant I won’t kill.  The lemongrass/lavender scent was tasty too.  I love discovering new products from all over the United States.  I have a close friend in Austin, so I always share this box with her.  If you want to try Austin BatBox, you can check them out here and use the coupon BOXMOM15 to save 15% on your subscription.
