Q Box Review February 2014 – Japenese Subscription Box

Q Box review February 2014

Since my January Q-Box took so long to get here and we thought it would be lost forever, the kind ladies at Q-Box offered me the February box to review. (If you took a look through my reviews, you can see that I did eventually receive the January box). I’ve been wanting a subscription box that sends out Japanese products and this is exactly that, so it is a true pleasure to be able to review two of their boxes!

I love how they packaged everything inside the tote!

 Beam Lights Moonin Tote Bag  - Retail Value $10(?)

This is just too adorable! I already have an extensive collection of totes which I usually end up using to store more subscription box items, but I think I will try and find another use for this.

Beam Lights Matching Pouch – Retail Value $5(?)

I found surprise snacks in my pouch. I love this little pouch and will probably end up using it to help me organize my purse.

Snacks – Retail Value $3?

I love seaweed snacks, so I was pleased to find some in my pouch. And I love Brookside chocolates!

Too Cool For School Blush – Retail Value $15.99 (?)

I was not able to find this exact product online, but I am loving this blush so much! I’ve been reading review on other products from their line and everything seems to be amazing, so I am going to have to buy some more products from them! Out of all the blushes I have, I think I like this the most. The color matches so well with my skin tone and gives the perfect bit of flush. Plus, I love the packaging. I don’t mean to gush so much about it, but I really am in love with this stuff.

Love Heart Shape Photo Clip – Retail Value $5(?)

These photos clips are so perfect for Valentine’s Day! Since it’s already passed, I will probably find another way to use them. Hearts and love are year-round anyway.

Harajuku Lovers Pearl Earrings - Retail Value $25

These are super cute, but not for me. I will be passing these on to my sister.

KOKO Cat iPhone 5 Case – Retail Value $10.99

I am one of the last few people who are still using an IPhone 4S I think. My other sister recently upgraded to the 5, so I will give this to her. It is very cute though!

Mystery Item: Duck Nail Clippers – Retail Value $2 (?)

I think these nail clippers are just too cute. They’ve been great to get my daughter to let me cut her nails. They work well on adult nails too!

Thoughts: I am really happy with my Q Box this month. I can’t wait to try the blush and although I won’t be using the heart clips for Valentine’s Day, they will still make a great decoration. Everything else is also really cute and exactly what I was expecting with this subscription. I wasn’t able to find accurate values or websites for most of the items, which is expected because of the novelty of the subscription. Overall, I think I even like this box more than January’s!

What did you think of the February Q Box?

Q Box Review January 2014 – Japanese Subscription Box


q box review

Oh the wonders of the US Postal service. The lovely people at Q Box were so kind as to send me this box to review – 6 weeks ago. The box was returned once and then sent back out and was lost for weeks. We had all but lost hope until it magically appeared at my door yesterday. Anyway, Q Box is a new Japanese subscription box that sends quirky and unique novelty items from Japan and includes household and lifestyle items as well as the occasional accessory and snack.

Thinsations White Fudge Drizzled Caramel Popcorn

I wish I could tell you that I liked this snack, but I can’t because my daughter ate the whole thing and didn’t leave one crumb for me to try. I am assuming it was good though.

Brookside Dark Chocolate with Goji with Raspberry 

I love this chocolate. I don’t like Goji berries on their own, but they pair wonderfully with most other flavors!

Stash Tea in Chocolate Hazelnut and Mango Passionfruit 

I love Stash teas and both these flavors are completely new to me. I cannot wait to try them out!

Touchscreen Stylus and Ballpoint Pen - Retail Value $15.99

I love multi-functional pens. I rarely ever use a stylus, but it is just nice knowing that I have the option.

Hello Kitty Cable Cord Holder Clips – Retail Value $5.99

This is just too cute for words. I always wanted to purchase a few cable clips to keep my cords organized because I just use twist ties now and they are not as cute!

Metal Feather Bookmark – Retail Value $5.99

This is so beautiful and really makes me want to start a new book so I can use it.

Mini Berkin Bag  Coin Case – Retail Value $4.99

The bag is super adorable and my daughter loves playing with it. She likes to hide lots of random objects in there for me to find.

Sparrow Key Ring and Key Holder – Retail Value $12.99

This is so cute and my favorite item in the box! The bird house is such a great touch and I love that the sparrow is also a whistle. I would love to actually use this, but my daughter loves it so much, she’s been keeping it to herself and brings the bird with her everywhere.

Mom Bird’s Nest Necklace – Retail Value $23.99

I like how unique this necklace is. I don’t wear hold often, but I am sure I will find a nice outfit to pair this with.

Bow Magic Leak Proof Silicone Mug/Cup Lid - Retail Value $8.99

I am not sure what the original use of this lid is, but I use it to keep my new cat away. We recently rescued a kitten and she loves to try and drink out of your cup, so this is the perfect way to keep me from having to constantly get a new cup of water. It’s already the most used item from the box!


Thoughts: I am really impressed with this box! I don’t think Q Box could have sent a better inaugural box. I definitely think this box is perfect for younger girls in college and younger, but everything in this box is being used and really appealed to my fun side.  The value was great at just under $79 – snacks not included! I can’t wait to see what next month’s box is like.
