Memoh Box Summer Edition

Hey everyone! So this is a brand new box, and I would love to share my experience with all of you. This box is made for “Trendy Business Women” and I was so excited to see what they would have in store for me this season. As a full time employee, most of my time is spent sitting at my desk at work. When you spend as much time as I do sitting at a desk, you want to make it as enjoyable as possible. This is why I decided to try out Memoh box.

There were 8 products in this box, and I am going to share my experience with each one!
Sugarwish- I had no idea what to expect when I opened this trendy little box, but it definitely wasn’t candy. This box of candy is priced at $9.50 on the Sugarwish website, but I could go buy the same thing at the Dollar store, twice the size, for a fraction of the price. I don’t think that this is a very practical idea, although, it is very sweet (haha, see what I did there?).
ChicoBag Snack Time rePETe – Honestly, it took me a while to figure out what this was. It is a pretty odd shape, but it’s a good idea for keeping snacks around while you are busy working. This isn’t something that I expected when I opened the box, but it was a pretty cool idea. The more I read about it, the more I realized that this bag is made to help reduce waste. You can use this for your sandwiches and snacks, instead of using a plastic bag. It is also great because it is machine washable, so you can use it over and over again.
Twiggy Originals Coasters- I think this is a great idea for any workspace. Its perfect for making sure that your drinks don’t spill and make a sticky mess all over your work area. Personally, I am not a fan of the designs on these particular coasters. They may be good for some people, but it is just not my style. Another thing that I noticed is that this product is pretty low quality. I don’t believe that this is something for me, and I would not buy it again.
Meet Coach B- I think that this is a great idea. This came with a little postcard with a plan on it to help you decide what time of day you are eating, so that you re-fuel your body at the best times. Do you feel those afternoon crashes all the time? I find that after lunch I always hit a point in my day where all I want to do is take a nap, which really sucks when you work 8 hours a day. This is an awesome idea. You can watch Joanna Barks on her website, where she helps you with a high energy lifestyle in an online class. I can’t wait to watch her classes and start feeling more energetic throughout the day.
Poppin Mini Metallic Notebook- This is super cute and easy to take in my purse wherever I go. I love having a notebook handy when I am out of the house. It’s a perfect size, and will not take up any room in your purse!
Willow District Agate Slice Magnet- This is the most beautiful magnet I have ever seen. It is very trendy and simple. This kind of thing is perfect for brightening up any workspace.
Beaux Cosmetics Lip Therapy – Vitamin E – Lip Balms are one of my favourite things to keep at my desk, and everywhere else. I have one with me right now! It is so important to me to keep my lips moisturized so they don’t get dried up and cracked. No one wants that. I think this product is great, and I love the fact that it is made with Vitamin E.
Juice Plus+ Chewables – I love having treats, especially when I can say that they are filled with fruits and vegetables. These gummies were fairly good… But, the package only contained 4 little gummies. I thought I would at least get the amount that is in a normal sized snack bag. I don’t believe that this is something that I would purchase again.
So that’s everything I received in the first Memohbox! There were some pretty decent products in the box, but it is not what I expected. Honestly, I believe that this is overpriced and not something that I would invest in again. And if this is something that interests you, I would like to warn you that the shipping cost to Canada was ridiculously priced. They had a lot of great ideas, but I don’t believe that it was worth the money I spent on the box and shipping. I could probably go buy very similar products of the same, or even better, quality, at a lower price from places like Dollarama, or Walmart. Although this is something that I don’t believe is right for me, there were a lot of great things about the company that I would like to share with you.
Since this is the first box made, there are not a lot of people who are aware of this company. When I was researching it, any question I had was happily answered as soon as they got it. I couldn’t believe how sweet everyone was when I needed help with anything. In regards to shipping, they also personally made sure I had received my box, and were happy to help me with any questions I had (and I had a lot considering the Postal Strike that has been going on in Canada recently). Another thing that I thought was very sweet was the fact that the addresses on the box were hand written, and it felt very personal, like they made this box just for me. I respect the people involved with Memohbox greatly, and I am very glad I got in touch with them. Although I don’t think I will be ordering again, I’m definitely glad I got a chance to try out their first box made.
