TravelBox Founders Edition December 2013

Rating: Love It!!!!
Cost: $33 + $5.95 shipping

This was the Founders Edition of the TravelBox, which is a new subscription box that includes a curated mix of travel goods selected from around the world. They kindly sent me this box to review! I always love seeing how new subscriptions are packaged, because you never know what to expect. The box arrived yesterday and was blue with their logo on it, so it was easy to tell what it was.

And the best part is opening the box for the first look...

This box looked very neatly packaged with teal colored tissue paper and a silver seal. They also included an information card with all the items included and a small handwritten note. I love that! The information card was great and said what country the items were from and the retail value.

So, here's what was inside....

The first item was the Breffo Spiderpodium (UK). Retail Price $19.95. I had no idea what this was at first, but it's genius. It's for holding your phone, camera, ipod, etc anywhere and everywhere. I think this is going to come in very handy. And it's perfect for traveling to help with taking pictures! I took a picture of the back of the packaging, which shows some of the ways you can use it. I love it and I never would have found something like this on my own!

The next item was a Luxe City Guide (France). Retail Price $9.95. I'll be honest when I saw this on the information card I thought it'd be a pamphlet, with some pictures of famous sites. But this is so much better. First, it's so French looking with the black/white stripe and red print. Love it! And then it folds out like an accordion and has so much information about restaurants, shopping, etc. It even tells you how to say "I think I stepped in something nasty" in French. I couldn't stop looking at this guide and it made me want to plan a trip to France tout de suite!

The Dreams Essentials Sleep Mask (United States) was also included. Retail Price $10.95. This sleep mask is contoured to allow for maximum light blockage and would  be great for getting some sleep on a plane. There was also earplugs and a pouch included.

 My favorite item was the Lanolin Agg Eggwhite Facial Care (Sweden). Retail Price $4.00. This soap smells amazing! It smells like you just walked into a room of fresh cut flowers! It was created by the Royal Soapmakers to the Royal Swedish Family, and uses a traditional Swedish recipe of eggwhites, rose water, and lanolin. I can't wait to use this and feel like royalty!

The last item included was Guylian Artisanal Truffles (Belgium). Retail Price $1.09. These look delicious! They are Belgian chocolate filled with Hazelnut filling. Yummy!!!

I loved everything included in this box and thought everything would be very useful for traveling. It was a great box that included items from different countries. It's always fun when you get things you wouldn't be able to buy in the US! I think this box would be wonderful for anyone who loves to travel or just wants to try some products from around the world.
