Review: April 2013 Spicy Subscriptions Box

*This is a very PG review of an adult subscription box.  Safe for reading at work and even safe for my mom to read (but we shall never speak of this, Mom). :)

As I mentioned yesterday, I love monthly subscription boxes.  Having a box show up at my doorstep with unknown products inside just makes my day.  And I thought I'd heard about all the types of boxes that exist. So I was surprised to find out about one that I wasn't aware of and was happy to accept a chance to review it- a subscription called Spicy Subscriptions! Here's a bit about this subscription service, from its website:

Get the Deluxe Spice Box: $34.95/month
Shipping is promised to be discreet, and it indeed was. My box showed up in a regular priority mail bubble envelope. Which is good, because my kids got to the door first and picked up the box. Most of the stuff that we receive is for them, but I explained that this mail was for Mommy and whisked it away.

Honestly, my favorite part about getting this box was Daniel and I sneaking away while the kids were watching TV so that we could open the box and check out what was inside.  We've been really busy with work and school and life in general lately, and it was good to have a reminder to take some time and remember the importance of romance!

I'm not going to post pictures of the products, but here is the card that was included in the box, which describes everything that was inside. Everything was nicely packaged inside the box and wrapped in pretty tissue paper.

It was a nice assortment of products. The full-sized products were mostly bath products, the type I would expect in a beauty box rather than a adult product box.  I thought the scrub and the massage oil were both nice- good smells and textures.  Unfortunately for me, I live in a house with no bathtubs, so the chromotherapy bath is going to have to wait in my cupboard for a while.  The sample products were all small and could easily be tucked into a bag for a romantic getaway.

Overall, we were pleased with the products that came in the box, but I think this is going to be a one-time subscription for me, for now, especially since so many of the full-sized products were bath-type products and I already have a ton of those. I could see myself subscribing again down the road though, when we need another romance pick-up. And I would definitely send a one-month subscription to a friend as a bridal shower present- it's out of the ordinary and fun!

For more information on what type of products and how many are included in each box, you can click the links in the subscription description back at the beginning of the post.  And if you're interested in subscribing, I have a coupon code for you!  Use the code: growingmykids to get 5% off  your order.
