Team Cosmo has included a short note to their subscribers.

On the back of the card is a list of all the items included in the box, along with a short description for each.

Everything in the March box!

Once again CosmoBox included an offer of a one-year subscription to Cosmopolitan for just $5 (which is like getting 12 issues for the price of one).

Cosmo Nail File Set ($8) Overpriced for a set of 3 basic files!

Super useful, but basic.

Laritzy Cosmetics Lip Gloss ($16) This was listed on the card as $20. Not sure why they inflated it!

Cupcake flavor + high gloss shine. Nice, and… basic!

Bundle Monster Collection Nail Polish Set in Electro Glo ($27 – now on sale for $22.94)

A set of 6 Easter egg colors from Bundle Monster!

Come with us on a journey through time, space and the high desert! Electro Glo is a collection of creamy, pastel colored stamping polishes mused after one of the biggest EDM festival in the U.S. Choose from a 6pc set or choose from each color individually: Mercury Bassline (B175) is a pastel periwinkle blue that will envoke a harmony like a steady beat, Tranceland (B176) is a pastel teal green so gorgeous you will get lost looking at it on your nails, Jungle Mirage (B177) is a soft creamy neon yellow that will have people flocking to your manicure, Monarch Dream (B178) is a beautiful pastel purple that will envoke a dreaminess to your manicure, Rave Babe (B179) is a pastel electric salmon so stunning you’ll stand out even in the brightest crowd, and Kandi Spirit (B180) is a pastel pinky-purple that will illuminate your inner EDM spirit animal.

The polishes are 5-free and had pretty nice coverage (sorry, kids art project = gold glitter paint on my hand!).

I tested these out with a nail art box. If you’re unfamiliar with BMC, they’re a nail art company and these polishes are great for stamping. I’m absolutely terrible at nail art, but I still think it’s fun, and stamping lets me pretend I am ok at it.

Her Tea Everyday Tea ($35)

There are 60 tea bags.

The ingredients – Chrysanthemum Tea, Camellia Sinensis (oolong tea), Gan-Jiang (ginger), andLyciumchinese (goji)- will let you glow with health.

Not only do I not drink tea (this is a REALLY big box to put in there), It’s also FOUR YEARS OLD! I think some people may have received expired tea. I think this item is unacceptably old.

This subscription has yet to find itself – we thought it did in February with the really Cosmolicious items, but March was a bit of a train wreck.  The only item I was excited to see were the stamping polishes (which is really an odd item if you’re not going to include THE STAMPS). While everything seemed new last month, this month seemed that we got ClearanceBox instead of CosmoBox!

What do you think about this month’s CosmoBox?
