I'm navigating through this round world while living a square life, and it fits exactly as it should.

Cravebox Review–Girls Night In

on May 14, 2013

By now you should all know that I really like Cravebox.  Of all the box subscriptions I’ve tried, this is the only one I’ve become a repeat customer of.  When Cravebox opened the drawing for Girls Night In, I did not hesitate to enter (being chosen in a drawing means that you get to purchase the box at a discounted price).  At first they said there were certain states the box couldn’t be delivered to.  A few days later they announced that the drawing had opened up to all states but that if you lived in a previously exempt state, one item would not be included in your box.  I knew all of this could only mean one thing:  that alcohol would somehow be involved.  Keep reading to see if I was right.

This is what a Cravebox looks like when you first open it upside down.

Girls Night In Cravebox Contents

My Girls Night In Cravebox contained the following:

  • Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm
  • Tree Hut Moroccan Rose Renewing Hand Cream
  • Fruit 2 O, Strawberry Flavor
  • New Girl Nail Polish
  • The Mindy Show Nail Polish
  • Hills Bros. French Vanilla Cappuccino Mix
  • New Girl/The Mindy Project Nail File
  • Zaca Recovery Patch (for hangovers!)
  • Warriors in Pink Bandana (I actually thought this was a scarf but according to the Cravebox website this is a bandana.)
  • *******A $50 Nakedwines.com gift card!!!!!!!!!*********

Yay!  I was right!  Let’s hear it for wine!  As always, I loved everything in the box.  I received the box on a Tuesday, and the funny thing is, I was watching New Girl on Fox as I was opening the box.  I did a double take when several pieces of the contents were promotional items for the very show I was watching at that very moment!  I thought the Zaca Recovery Patches were absolutely hilarious.  Of course, who doesn’t love a good lip balm?  The hand cream smelled wonderful, the nail polish was beautiful, the bandana was neat, and the cappuccino was delish!  However, the crowning touch to the box, and the thing I was most excited about was the $50, yes, $50 gift card from nakedwines.com.

I have never ordered wine online before, and I was a bit skeptical.  With that being said, I immediately went online to place my order.  I ordered what nakedwines.com calls the “Nifty Gifty”.  It was a mixed case of both domestic and foreign whites and reds.  After I applied my gift card, with tax and shipping, my total came to $47.30.  For a whole case of wine, you can’t beat that!  When it came in (one week later), the screw tops kind of threw me for a loop since I usually only buy wines with corks.  To date, I’ve only tried 2 of the bottles, a Chardonnay and Malbec.  The Chardonnay was one of the best I’ve had.  The Malbec wasn’t one that I would buy again, but I’m still pleased with my purchase.

All-in-all, this was a great box!  I might even go so far as to say it’s my favorite one yet!  I don’t know how Cravebox does it, but for $13 the value was phenomenal.  As always, there were items in there I use on a regular basis, and items I’ve never heard of but am excited to try.  I can’t wait to see what they come up with next!

    • Tracey they’ve all had different things in them curated (their word) around a theme. The one for the giveaway is the Cooking Light Fast Meals box. A link to my review of the box, including a complete contents list, is in this post. I’ve gotten 6 boxes, I think, and they’ve all had great items!
