Overall the value was decent for this box, although they hit the $200 value by adding in some random items, but once again the sizing is off which makes it a waste of money in the end. I’m thinking of increasing my size but I know as soon as I do I will get something that is too big!
January 2018 BOX – COST $50USD/$107AUD incl shipping
APROX RETAIL VALUE $175USD/$224AUD (This is under the $200 value they claim you will receive)
This time there was just an outer box with the gold tissue paper inside, there was no inner box.
I thought this was a random thing to add into this box but then read about its applicator and how it stimulates hair growth for eyelashes, brows etc. I have one eyebrow that has a weird balding patch that I constantly have to fill in, so I’m actually really excited to use this. The fact that its organic as well makes it even better!
This actually might be my favourite item in this box because it’s natural and already something I needed.
Compression Zip Pocket Leggings X by Gottex RRP $77.00 ($98 AUD)
These are good quality leggings with some mesh inserts on the leg and a zippered coin pocket in white which is a nice feature you don’t always get on leggings. Again, as with previous boxes these were a little small for me. They fit, but if I was purchasing I probably would have purchased the next size up. As they will stretch over time I think they will be fine.
Fabric Mixing sweatshirt X by Gottex RRP $88 ($113AUD)
I LOVE this top! It’s definitely more of a top, not a sweatshirt, but it has the shape of a sweatshirt. It’s boxy and oh-so-soft and has a mix of fabrics giving it an interesting look. The fabric at the front is shiny and the sleeves and back are more of a fine knit. The fabric is a mix of modal, spandex and polyester.
HOWEVER, this top is just too small for me. It fits, but my big boobs make it look weird and again, it’s just as though I need the next size up. Its also a crop fit which if you are tall and not stick thin, would not be a good look.
Frustrating, but I know I will find a girlfriend who will love it…

Blueberry Muffin Lara Bar
I’m not even counting this in my review as this was supposed to be a luxury ‘designer catch of the month’ not a food box. These are good though.
I’m so desperately hoping that next month I get something that fits me and I like. Otherwise I will have to cancel this box as its money down the drain every month. That said if I had sized up from the beginning I would have loved all the items I have been sent so keep that in mind if you are unsure about ordering.
