Company: Grab Bag Love

Category: Beauty, Lifestyle

Cost: USD $15-25 per bag, free shipping

About: “All of our bag’s contents are handpicked based on quality products we know and love. The products range from popular and up-and-coming brands to hand crafted items found on Etsy.”

The Scoop: Select from three Grab Bag categories: Original Grab Bag ($25.00), Health Nut Grab Bag ($15.00), and Delightfully Domesticated Grab Bag ($20.00). Each unique mystery bag will include special handpicked items based on that theme and the bag’s value will always exceed its price. Unlike other monthly subscription services, this is a per bag purchase that makes a fabulous gift – or a special treat for yourself! :)

The Box: Original Grab Bag 

My Grab Bag Love arrived in perfect condition with a lovely note that described the bag’s contents. I also received a sweet handwritten card from Grab Bag Love Founder Jamie. This themed bag promises to showcase an assortment of amazing hand-selected goods ranging from cosmetics to fashion accessories. I can’t wait to check it out!

LAQA & CO. Nail Polish in Nookie
Full size 0.3 fl oz., value: USD $11.00

The eye-catching LAQA & CO. packaging features vivid artwork created by Manchester-based artist James Roper. I adore this sweet raspberry shade which is absolutely perfect for spring (it would look totally hot paired with white or floral). I’m new to the LAQA & CO. brand, which offers a variety of lip pencils, nail polish, and nail polish pens. The nail polish formula applied smoothly and appeared full color after two coats. Love it!

Ban.do Glitterati Twist Scarf 
Full size, value: USD $20.00

You may have seen this trendy Ban.do Glitterati Twist Scarf worn by celebrities like Taylor Swift. This versatile wired chiffon scarf can be tied in a bow, wrapped around your hair, or even formed into a chic rosette. The possibilities are endless! The bold pink color is so fun and the glitter accents provide a nice sparkle. This scarf is also available in Navy, Red, or Blush to match any outfit. This summer accessory is a must-have, y’all.

Aveda Rosemary Mint Conditioner 
Sample size 1.7 fl oz., value: USD $2.40

I’ve frequented Aveda salons in the past and I know, first-hand, that Aveda hair care products are heavenly! This daily Rosemary Mint Conditioner adds weightless body and shine while preventing tangles and static. This stuff smells amazing, combining rosemary with cool peppermint. During this morning’s shower, I applied the conditioner and my hair felt completely smooth afterward. I only wish I had the matching Aveda shampoo!

BONUS: Barre Bar in Pirouette Cinnamon Pecan 
Full size 50g, value: USD $2.50

Barre Bar was developed by two professional dancers who wanted to make a snack for real athletes using real ingredients. Pirouette Cinnamon Pecan, the original Barre flavor, pairs cinnamon and nuts to create a delicious chewy bar. The taste is amazing! Think: nutty with a hint of spicy sweetness. This healthy snack is perfect for a post-workout pick-me-up or a mid-day treat. Other Barre bar flavors include Black Swan Chocolate Berry and Ballerina Spirulina (YUM!).

    What an amazing concept – grab bags and 3 categories to chose from! The scarf is gorgeous with the glitter accents and is my favorite. I also like the idea that this is not a subscription but a per bag purchase.

    I want to follow your site on WordPress but am unable to! There is no follow button/Wordpress header.

    • Must Have Boxes says:

      My site isn’t hosted through the WordPress server, so you can’t follow it like other WordPress press blogs. On the upper right-hand corner, you’ll see a “Follow My Blog” section. Simply enter your email address to subscribe! You’ll receive an alert whenever a new subscription box review is posted. It’s as simple as that!

    Would love to see a review of the “Delightfully Domesticated” grab bag as I am considering this as Christmas gifts for my sister and sister-in-law cooks/bakers.

      Tessa, I’ll see if I can get my hands on a Delightfully Domesticated Grab Bag to review. I bet it would make a fantastic Christmas Gift and it’s a great price too.
