Escape Monthly Holiday Box December 2013 Review

Escape Monthly Holiday Box December 2013 Review
This was the 2nd Escape Monthly Box I received today. This is the Holiday Box.
The Practical Nomad Book- Travel tips.
 Yogi Tea Sampler - Caramel Apple Spice Slim Life and Green Tea Blueberry Slim Life. I don't drink tea so this instantly went into the giveaway basket.

Mug O'Love Hot Cocoa - I received a packet in my December box as well.

 Dr. Singha's Mustard Bath - I received two of these packets. I think it's bath salts, not completely sure.
 This is a card that explains what Chakra is. Or maybe it's explaining what the Chakra Oil was included is for. Again, I post in the order I pull them out, so I was confused on this at first.
Nob Mor Dark Chocolate Mint Bar - Treats! Haven't tried yet, but sounds great.

Dark Chocolate Dreams Packet. This is a peanut butter with chocolate blended in.

Knuckle Wax all natural skin balm. I have never heard of knuckle wax, and was not aware that such a product existed. I've never even given my knuckles much thought at all, and have never thought to have a special cream for them. I intend to just stick to hand cream. I mean what's next? Special Elbow moisturizer?

Chicken Poop Lip Junk - This was a bonus item. I completely cracked up when I pulled this out. I thought is this for real? Am I being punked? But then I read the ingredients and was so relieved to find out it is not made of real chicken poop. It's still going in the giveaway basket, but it did make me laugh.

Sciabica's California Basil Olive Oil - since I love cooking with oils I will be using this. Wish it was a little larger.

Nature's Bakery Whole Wheat Apple Cinnamon Fig Bar - This name is a lot longer than it deserves. It just doesn't sound appealing to me. I don't even know what a fig bar is. I've had a Fig Newton cookie, but otherwise I just can't relate to this.


Enjoy Life S'mores Bar (Gluten Free) - I'll try this for sure.
This is the Chakra oil I mentioned earlier. I was turned off by the fragrance. K wants to try it though. I told her she has to take the chakra card too. Cuz they're a pair.

 Alo Enrich Pomegranate & Cranberry Drink - I already handed over to K.

 Info Card - This info card was probably the most needed out of any box I've ever gotten.

This box cost the same amount as the normal monthly cost of $39.95. I have to say I was just a tad bit disappointed this month. With both the regular monthly box and this Holiday box. I don't know what I was expecting. But out of both boxes the only thing I will be using is the olive oils. At least the chicken poop lip balm was good for a laugh.  I do plan to cancel this subscription and try something else. I still love the theme of the box though, and this still seems like a good company, so I could try again in the future, but I'm taking a break for now.  If you are interested in trying them out, here is a link they sent for me to share with my friends.
