Have you heard? Wantable.com is coming to the UK! If you haven’t heard of Wantable, they are a monthly subscription box service offering makeup, accessories and intimates boxes based in the US.
How does it work? With Wantable you firstly choose your category (makeup, accessories or intimates) then answer some questions so they know what styles you like, and what you don’t like. You can then subscribe for $36 (£22.08) a month or $40 (£34.53) for a one off box – it’s also handy to know you can skip a box or cancel your subscription at any time. So here is my first accessory box!
Firstly I’d like to point out, the box only took about a week and a half from the date of order to arrive, I thought this was fantastic as it came from the US! When I opened the box there was a big banner across the foam insert saying ‘Hello, Beautiful’. This made me smile and I thought it was a lovely touch.
Inside there was an invoice showing the items that were picked for me and their values, and a list of the categories I said I loved and liked (I hadn’t disliked any)
So first up, I received a black pair of sunglasses in a pouch, they’re a good style to suit most face shapes, I’m definitely happy with these 🙂 These sunglasses feature a subtle cat eye shape for a classic meets modern look (Barb Sunglasses, $15)
Next up are two pretty awesome statement rings!
The Gertie Ring features a unique geometric design in distressed gunmetal (Gertie Ring $16)
The Donatella Ring features a unique, spiked design in a brushed gold tone finish for a look of a multi-finger ring without the discomfort (Donatella Ring $20)
And finally a lovely necklace – When you want to add a little something extra to your ensemble, the Vieira Necklace is the perfect choice! This silvery necklace features faceted chevron elements in a chic smokey grey (Vieira Necklace $28)
Overall I’m really happy with my box, these are all pieces I will wear! The total value came to $79 (£48.08) The cost of the box was $36 (£22.08), so I think I’ve got a pretty good deal!! 🙂 I think it’s also worth mentioning that shipping to the UK is $7 and tax is 20% making the total cost of a monthly subscription box $50.20 (£30.79) Before you’re put off by this, firstly $7 shipping from the US is really cheap, and the 20% tax is because you’re purchasing outside the EU, this upfront fee is to save you paying on receipt of your box. I hope that all makes sense!
