Craftly September 2016 Subscription Box Review

We received this box for our review. Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure

Craftly is a monthly subscription box that sends 4-5 high-quality and unique lifestyle items from various categories such as art, tech, snacks, grooming products, home goods, and more. It is $25 and shipping is free to the U.S. You also have the option to send this as a gift. The subscription will automatically renew until you cancel.

The items were shipped in a sturdy box with bubble wrap and an information card on top.

The product information card gave a description of the items included, retail price, and where to find more, along with some discount codes on future purchases.

All of the items in my box. Craftly sent 4 items for the month of September.

I guess I didn’t really know what sandalwood smelled like before I received my Hi Wildflower Botanica In the Heart of a Sandalwood Grove Candle ($14). This hand-poured soy wax candle is scented with Mysore sandalwood oil, incense, and wood shavings and the scent smells the same whether the candle is burning or cold. Also, the packaging is lovely. I didn’t care for this scent but my husband loved it! Maybe it’s a manly kind of candle.

Bioelements Moisture Positive Cleanser ($15) is suitable for dry skin and removes makeup too. I didn’t experience any dryness after using and it has a pleasant scent thanks to essential oils such as lavender, rosemary, and sandalwood (no, it doesn’t smell like the candle!).

I am in love with Simple Squares Cho-Coco Organic Nutrition Bar ($2.50)! This paleo bar is full of goodies like cashews, almonds, coconut, honey, and chocolate and reminded me of nutty raw cookie dough. Oh my goodness, this was just heavenly!

I have never been one to wear pins (with the exception of that E.T. one back in middle school with the fingers touching) so I have no idea what I am supposed to do with the Lemonade Pin from Pintrill ($15). This one is sunny and is crafted from black nickel plated brass with hard enamel. Pintrill specializes in “pin fashion” and I had no idea that was such a thing!

The September Craftly box had a value of $46.50, which is over their goal of $40+. This subscription is suitable for men or women and would make a nice gift for an older teen or person in their 20’s. I LOVED the snack bar and the cleanser will be used up but the pin and candle will be gifted to someone who will get some use out of them.

What do you think of Craftly? Do you have any ideas for the lemonade pin?

    I cancelled my subscription after getting this month’s box. The only thing useful to me was the food item.

    • Deb

      That was my favorite item too! I hope you find a box that fits your needs Catherine!

  • Nancy M.

    The given values seem VERY high for these 4 small items… $15 for a 2 oz. cleanser?? Even the box seems empty…

    • Deb

      I agree Nancy but that is what they sell for on the internet. That doesn’t mean I would PAY such a price though!
