I remember stumbling across bluum box many months ago as I was searching for new monthly box subsrciptions and I thought, “Oh, I need to remember this if I get pregnant. . .”.
About a month or so ago, I signed up to receive bluum! Since we haven’t found out the sex yet, I’m recieving the gender-neutral box, but as soon as we know I’ll switch to the gender-specific box.
I didn’t have many expectations for this box, I just hoped that I would recieve something that I could actually use one day. And I was pleasantly surprised with my first box!
The first thing I noticed was how large the box was. Since the subscription is $25.00/month, I was hoping it would come in a box larger than my $10/month Birchbox subscription. Plus, bluum isn’t sending “sample-sizes”, so everything is full size.
The book, Brain Rules, wouldn’t be something I’d normally gravitate to in a bookstore, but maybe it will come in handy one day. I liked the “keep-it-kleen” pacifier, although I’ve volunteered in a church nursery enough to know they never fall quite right to actually close.
I’m pretty happy with my prenatal vitamins, so I may give the Bellybar Prenatals to another pregnant friend. It’s no secret I’m a fan of beauty products, so I’m looking forward to giving this Rose Hips face creme a try.
The last two items were little green socks and a Luna protein bar. I can afford to up my protein a bit, and am searching for a protein bar that is both good and not gritty.
It was a fun box to open! Not as immediately gratifying as a Birchbox, since I’ll have to wait until December to use some of these things, but it was fun to sift through and think about everything nonetheless.
I plan on reviewing a few of my bluum boxes here on the blog, so if you are on the fence about subscribing, you can atleast get a little inside peek at what I’m reciving.
I don’t know if everyone gets the same box or not ( as long as you are in the same category as me, which is gender-neutral expecting in December).
Do you recieve a bluum box? I’d love to hear what you think of your boxes!
bluum has no idea who I am. I was not compensated for this review, nor was anything provided to me for free. I’m just a girl interested in monthly box subscriptions!
