Q Box, who sent me this box to review, sends a monthly box full of 5-7 hand-selected items in beauty, fashion, accessories, home from mainly Japanese and Korean brands. Boxes are $24.95/month and promise to include full sized products with a value of $60+. This box, however, was their Limited Edition “Summer Fun Z Box” which sold for $59.99 and promised a value of over $200. Per the description, the box would include seven items and brands to be included were Snidel, JillStruart, 3CE, Renachris and more.
The box was larger than the normal monthly Q Boxes and was also heavier than normal. It was wrapped neatly and looked great.
The Summer 2014 Q Box included the following items:
~Iriver Blank SC-10 Noodles Earphones ($22): Well you know I need these. I never have headphones with me, lose them constantly, etc. I have a few pairs that are “too nice” to use when traveling that I keep just at home because I don’t want to lose a $100 pair of headphones! These are nice, but not too nice which is good.
~3CE Liquid Eyeliner ($18): I will put this one in my gift pile. Eyeliner (and liquid eyeliner even more so) is just not me.
~Ted Baker Bow Make Up Bag ($55): Ohh, love! This is so cute and I will happily use it as a little cosmetics bag! This is easily my favorite item in the box. Easily.
~Jill Stuart Tote Bag ($53): I love the pink, but even I think $53 for a tote bag is a lot! Oddly, I didn’t think $55 for a makeup bag was crazy, but $53 for a tote (which is bigger than the makeup bag) is. LOL! It’s cute though and I’ll use it.
~Renachris Pearl Crystal Ball Hairband ($18): This isn’t really my style, but on the right person, with the right outfit, I can totally see it working. I would for sure place it on your head in the spot you want though as opposed to putting it on like a normal headband and them sliding it into place. Your hair probably won’t get as caught as this way.
~3CE Skin Tone Control Primer ($25): I tested this out quickly and I am already a fan! It’s works with my skin tone and really does make everything go on nicer.
~Elegant Rose Bath / Beach Towel ($20): This totally reminds me of my Grandma. In a good way! She would have loved this! And I will think of her every time I see it!
According to the information card, the Summer Q Box box has a value of $211, which is awesome since the box was only $59.99. I didn’t calculate the prices on my own because it’s too difficult to find a lot of the things online. It does appear that we were missing a product from “Renachris” and I also recall reading that we’d be getting something from “Zoku”? Hopefully those items will show up down the road in a Q Box!
