21 Bundles Month 6 (October 2014) Review

My Month 6 21 Bundles box arrived this past weekend, here’s what was inside:

THE BOX:

So last month I received a note that they would no longer be sending out the descriptions to be more “green”; however, I still received this months as well as an email this month!  Still missing the “Month X” sticker though…

THE COST:

21 Bundles costs $39.99 per month, $109.99 for 3 months ($36.66/month), or $209.99 for 6 months ($35/month).

21 Bundles catch is they deliver hand selected natural products tailored to your stage of pregnancy and the first year of your baby’s life.  9 months pregnancy + 12 months = 21 bundles!

Use coupon code “sustainable15” for 15% off a new subscribers first bundle!  That’s right, my very own coupon code! 🙂  I hope you readers out there can use it!

THE GOODS:

Earth Mama Angle Baby Organics Peaceful Mama Tea – 16 bags (FULL SIZE) – $6

This is the third box of tea that I have received in 21Bundles out of the 5 months I’ve received boxes (Month 2 through Month 6)… I like tea, but I’m a loose leaf tea fan and the more fruit the better!  I’ve used all of one tea bag out of the 3 boxes I’ve received.  I do wish they would mix up the products just a little more – No more tea please!

Acure Unscented Argan Oil Cleansing Towelettes –30 towelettes (FULL SIZE) – $9

I gave these a try and really liked them!  I generally pick up the Blum Naturals Face Wipes at the store, but this product does seem comparable (a little more expensive).  Honestly, it’s probably a toss up between the two, will likely just depend on which ones are available/on sale!

Erbaorganics Mommy-to-be Foot and Leg Refresher – 4 ml – $0.56

I received this same sample in a previous 21Bundles box (Month 3).  Definitely not a high value item in the box, but it would be nice to get a little more of a mix in products.  That, and a little larger size sample?  I always feel like you can’t quite get a good feel for products from foil packets.

Acure Body Lotion – 10 ml? – $0.50?

I also received this same sample in my Month 3.  Guess it’s a month of repeats!

100% Pure Creamy Nail Polish in Tomato – 0.5 fl oz (FULL SIZE) – $12

I have tried the 100% Pure product a couple times and always seemed impressed!  I managed to get this on a couple toes, and really liked the color and formula!  The only problem, at 6 months pregnant, it’s getting a little hard to paint my own toenails!  I wish this would have shown up a few months back when that task was a little easier!  I may just have to bring it with me when I get my next pedicure!  or maybe convince the Husband to paint them for me? ha!  That could be disastrous!

Reviva Labs Hypoallergenic Black Mascara – 0.25 oz (FULL SIZE) – $8

This mascara is a little “runny” for my taste – it may be because it is water based?? I usually use Physicians Formula 100% Natural Origin Mascara and will be continuing with that product.  Will still use this as I don’t like to waste product!

100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Pink Caramel Lip Gloss – 0.24 oz (FULL SIZE) – $15

Arg.  I’m torn!  I have loved the 100% Pure products, but unfortunately, I am just not a lip gloss person!  I will likely end up swapping this as I would hate for it to go to waste!

THE VERDICT:

I paid $40 for my 21 Bundles box and received approximately $51 worth of product!  A few of the products were “repeats” (either exactly or just more tea), which was a little disappointing, but other then that I loved the box and trying new products that are “green”!  I also really enjoy how each month has it’s own theme!  I can’t wait to see what the Month 7 theme is! 🙂
