Monthly Express October 2015 Review

Monthly Express is a monthly subscription service. Savor your "ME" time. The boxes contain luxurious hand-selected items from around the world in full or deluxe sizes, picked for the highest quality and ingredients, and center around "self-nourishing". They recently offered a deal on gilt.com, for 1 month for $75 or 3 months for $225, so I jumped at the changed to try it and grabbed the 3-month deal. This is my last box.
 I love they way they wrap the boxes each month.
The info card is printed on a nice quality paper, and gives information about the products. It does not give prices, which would be very helpful.
Empower Fragrance by Pour Le Monde - $82. This is made for both men and women. I am never thrilled to receive perfume in a box.
Boticario de Havana Body Lotion by Archipelago - $29.50. This benefit-rich Archipelago Body Lotion is  boasting ingredients straight from the islands such as coffee, jojoba and orange oils and botanical extracts of sugar cane & pineapple. This has a very strong fragrance and I am not able to use it. 
 
Rainforest at Dusk Nourishing Body Polish by Teadora - $34. Packed with Antioxidant and vitamin-rich Buriti, Babassu, Brazil Nut, Rose Hip Seed, and Maracujá oils, plus potent exfoliants such as Açaí Seeds and Amazonian Clay our ultra-smooth Nourishing Body Polish removes dead skin while providing amazing hydration for brighter, healthier, smoother skin. This has a very strong fragrance and I am not able to use it.

Unfortunately, there aren't any items I am able to use this month because everything has such a strong scent. The overall value this month is $145.50. This is slightly higher than in previous months, but I still think this is too low for the full price cost of this box. This month was our last month for this box. We will not be renewing or continuing the subscription because there are other luxury boxes out there with a better curation and value.
