You can read my first Umba box review here. To summarize my first review, I thought the box was too expensive for the items I received. But I decided to give them a second chance, and I now have the exact same opinion. You pay $25 plus $5 shipping, so $30 for these boxes. They send one box per month and the items are guaranteed to be "worth" more than $25 per box. Well, that's questionable. Again, I understand that these are handmade goods, and I appreciate them for their artistic value, but I wouldn't pay full prices for any of these items. See the following pictures for details of what was in my second box:
I put my hand in there for size comparisons.
Well, on a whole I'd say these products are not worth the price I paid for this box. However, it is super fun to receive a box of surprises every month. So now I'm torn... it's fun to see what I will get, and I do enjoy the items (and will probably use them or give them as gifts), but on the other hand, it's not worth the money.
What would you do? Would you try a subscription? Or do you think the products aren't worth the price? Let me know below!
