Irish Taste Club May 2016 Subscription Box Review

Irish Taste Club is a unique way to get the finest Irish gourmet food to you – monthly! Each box will contain 7 – 9 niche products, sourced directly from Ireland’s finest independent producers.

Irish Taste Club May 2016 Subscription Box Review

Irish Taste Club ships on a monthly basis. My box was sent to me to review via UPS, but I believe they typically ship via USPS.

This box was super heavy and packed full!

Irish Taste Club May 2016 Subscription Box Review
The April 2016 Irish Taste Club included the following items:

~O’Donnells of Tipperary Hand Cooked Crisps: B loved these! He ate them in the car on the way home from up-north yesterday and thought the flavor (Mature Cheese and Onion) was delicious.  If I could find these locally (and I probably can if I look hard enough) I will grab more.
Irish Taste Club May 2016 Subscription Box Review
~Cocoa Bean Chocolate Co. Milk Chocolate Rose & Pistachio: This is definitely a different kind of chocolate bar.  I can see either Rose or Pistachion in chocolate, but both was a first for me.  This flavor combo didn’t do it for me.  I like a plain chocolate bar I guess? It was fun to try though.
Irish Taste Club May 2016 Subscription Box Review
~Red Rooster Coffee Bantam’s Brew: B just mentioned he was running out of coffee at work, so the tioming couldn’t be better.  Red Rooster Coffee is roasted in small batches in Ireland and contins three different beans from Columbia, Ethopia and Kenya.
Irish Taste Club May 2016 Subscription Box Review
~Harnett’s Rapeseed Oil – Blackcurrant Vinagirette: This oil can be used in salads, but works well over grilled fish and veggies as well.  The information card references a blackberry vinaigrette, but we received a blackcurrant one.
Irish Taste Club May 2016 Subscription Box Review
~Our Daily Bread Bake it Yourself Irish Soda Bread: We haven’t made this yet, but all you need to do is mix in a bowl with some water and put it in the included foil container and you are done!  We haven’t made this yet (no one has been in the mood for baking lately), but hopefully this weekend.
Irish Taste Club May 2016 Subscription Box Review
~O’Neill’s Irish Atlantic Sea Salt Flakes: These aren’t just sea salt flakes, these are sea salt chunks! They are 100% pure and natural and are produced slowly and naturally, retaining over fifty natural trace elements that are essential for your wellbeing.  It’s delicious and we will be cooking with it all summer long.
Irish Taste Club May 2016 Subscription Box Review
~Folain Extra Fruit Whiskey Marmalade ($7.99): This contains 100% Natural Ingredients and is gluten-free.  It contains real Irish Whiskey, so the smell is a little different than that of a “normal” orange marmalade. I think it makes it better though.
Irish Taste Club May 2016 Subscription Box Review

I couldn’t find prices for a lot of these items online so I was unable to do a full cost breakdown on the box.  All of the items were new to us so it was extra fun to try all these goodies!

Jewelreveal June 2016 Subscription Box ReviewEach piece arrived in individual organza bags.

Jewelreveal June 2016 Subscription Box Review
The May 2016 Jewelreveal included the following items:

~Gold Tone Necklace ($75): This necklace is delicate, but still provides a lot of fun sparkle. It’s a long chain and can be worn as is or doubled up for a shorter style.
Jewelreveal June 2016 Subscription Box Review
~Gold-Tone Bangle: This bangle is delicate and simple and I love it.  It has a hammer detailing and is a standard size that will fit most wrists.
Jewelreveal June 2016 Subscription Box Review
~Cubic Zirconia Stud Earrings ($20): These are my favorite item in the box.  They are substantial (about 1.5 carats each I’d guess) and the sparkle factor is amazing.  Sometimes you just want crazy sparkle in your ears (I always do) and these are it.
Jewelreveal June 2016 Subscription Box Review

Using prices provided by Jewelreveal this box had a value of $143 (CAD).  That’s over 3x the cost of the box and could be even better if you end up with one of their surprise high-valeu pieces.

Wantable Makeup June 2016 Subscription Box Review
Wantable offers five different types of subscription boxes. This box is their makeup box, which includes 4 to 5 full-sized premium makeup products, hand-picked to perfectly match your preferences. They also offer intimates, fitness, style and accessories boxes, again customized to your preferences.  And unlike the majority of other subscription boxes, Wantable allows you to return the box if you aren’t totally 100% happy. They also allow you to return a just portion of your box if you want!  Wantable lists “Your Price” on the information card along with the “Retail Price” so you can easily determine the amount of credit you will receive if you opt to return certain items.  If you end up keeping your entire box, a credit of $4 will be posted to your account – making your next box $36.

Wantable Makeup June 2016 Subscription Box Review
Wantable ships via USPS and took just a few days to arrive.  Wantable (typically) ships at the same time each month based on when you originally subscribed.  So if you subscribed at the end of the month, your box will always ship at the end of the month.

Wantable Makeup June 2016 Subscription Box Review
Like I mentioned before (and like I do every month), you can totally customize your Wantable box. You fill out a questionnaire telling them what you Love, Like and Dislike. You’ll get more of the things you Love, some of the things you Like and none of the things you Dislike. It also asks about color preferences and that sort of thing. Eyeliner is my only dislike and that seems to be working out well. Wantable has also launched the “My Stream” which includes product and customer photos of items from Wantable boxes. You can scroll through the images, and if you see something you love, you can request it in your next box.

Wantable Makeup June 2016 Subscription Box Review
My May 2016 Wantable Makeup Box contained the following items:

~EMMA Mascara (Retail Price: $19, Your Price $9): EMMA is a new-to-me brand. Their mascara contains “natural mineral pigments and lash-conditioning essential oils to dramatically lengthen and thicken the look of lashes”. The wand was smaller / thinner than a normal mascara wand and while I loved it for the corners, I didn’t think it was all that great for overall application.
Wantable Makeup June 2016 Subscription Box Review
~EMMA Eye Shadow (Chelsea Champagne) (Retail Price: $18, Your Price: $8.53): This is a gorgeous gold colored shadow.  It’s subtle, but enough to make a statement.  I applied it with my finger and found that it blended well and stayed put.
Wantable Makeup June 2016 Subscription Box Review
~Doucce Gloss Wear Lip Gloss – Pink (Retail Pirce: $24, Your Price $11.37): This gloss is highly pigmented and SO pretty! It’s crazy shiny and I couldn’t love it more.
Wantable Makeup June 2016 Subscription Box Review
~BellaPierre Cosmetics Lipstick (Couture) (Retail Price: $15, Your Price: $7.11): This purple lip color isn’t for me, but I also don’t like lipstick as it is, so this would have been passed on to a friend either way.  It’s fair to say this is long-lasting since I had trouble getting it off my wrist even with a make-up wipe!
Wantable Makeup June 2016 Subscription Box Review

Wantable Makeup June 2016 Subscription Box Review

All totaled my June 2016 Wantable Makeup box had a value of $76.  That’s nearly double the cost of the box and I am quite pleased with this box.  I want to start getting some skincare products though so I need to update it as a “Love” in my profile.

Do you subscribe to Wantable?  If so, what’d you get in your box (makeup, accessories, intimates, fitness or the new style edit) this month? And if you don’t subscribe, what are you waiting for? There is no risk involved so why not?
