The Austin BatBox July 2016 Review + Coupon
Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. I received this box for 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.
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
Everything came in a white box with a batbox sticker on the front.
First Look. The theme for this month is “Austin-American Summer”. There was also a little card with the name of the person who packed the box.
This month celebrates 2 years of the Austin BatBox. The information card has a list of everything in the box
Zen Soap: Handcrafted Soap & Natural Wood Soap Dish $16.00 This soap is made with koconut oil and natural clay. You can really smell the lemongrass in this soap. The soap dish is made of natural, untreated wood. This is a nice gender neutral scent, so my whole family can use it.
Lavande Farm: Lavender Mosquito Spray $5.00 Mosquitos are horrible where I live, but I hate the smell of traditional bug sprays. This mosquito spray has a great lavender scent that I enjoy smelling.
Stubbs Bar-B-Q: Spice Rub in Pork and Steak $3.19 each. The pork rub is made with spices, lime juice and chile peppers. I love a good spice with my meat, so I look forward to trying this. The steak spice looks just as good. It's made with sea salt, garlic and ancho chile. I normally just salt and pepper my steak, but I need to try this seasoning.
Artist of the Month: Brenda Armistead Ceramic Texan Bat Season Kitchen Art $6.00 This is a magnet made of porcelain and finished with 5 glazes. The little bat, is a nod to Austin. Since my best friend lives in Texas, I think I might send this to her.
Final Thought: This box had a total value of $33.38, which is more than the cost of the box. Since I have friends in Austin, I always enjoy receiving this box. The spices will come in handy, as well as the soap. I thought this was a really nice box this month.
