Esian Box Deluxe Snack Box Review and $3 Coupon Code

Esianmall has a few eclectic box subscriptions for those into Asian snacks, Asian beauty and/or geeky gamer goodies. It seems like kind of an awkward combination but it works. At least for the box I got. This is the Deluxe Esian Box version of their snack box which means it comes with not just snacks but also gamer items!
I'm all for snacks. Bonus geek items are always welcome in my household so this went over fairly well. We've been taste testing since it arrived.
Esian Box has a selection of three different Snack Boxes. The Deluxe box is the only snack box that comes with "geek swag" though. Since I've only received one box so far, I can't attest to the total quality of the swag and style. I'm happy with what showed up in this month's box, though.

The Cost: $34.95/month

What You Get: In the Deluxe box you'll receive 12-14 snacks with 1-2 items of geek merchandise. Total value is at least $50 per box.

Snakku March 2017 Premium Japanese Snack Subscription Review and Coupon

Snakku has been arriving directly from Japan for the last few months. I think that means better access to delicious snacks. There were some REALLY tasty snacks in this box, too. I usually tend to love the crunchy, savory snacks but lately Snakku has been sending some delicious sweet treats and I've enjoyed the indulgence.
I know I've said it a million times but I'm always so impressed with Snakku's presentation. This box is a pleasure to open. The pretty furoshiki cloth. the colorful box itself and the professional information page add up to a gift experience. I love it!

The Cost: $38.99/month for the Snakku Box. $15.95/month for the Tasting Box.

What You Get: Get a collection of 10-15 hand-picked snacks that you can only find in Japan,
along with a selection of familiar & delicious Japanese snacks delivered every month.

Sephora Play! VS Allure Beauty Box March 2017 Review

I've finally narrowed it down to my two favorite low cost beauty boxes. Sorry Birchbox and Ipsy, it's not you. The Allure Beauty Box has been one of my top boxes for years and the new Sephora Play gives it a run for it's money every month. They're both so good about brands and sizes that I continue to get both rather than choose only one.

I've been having them duke it out over the past few months and I'm going to continue doing so just to tally it up later and see who gives me the most wins. My initial guess is that they'll be pretty close to even.

This month has a clear winner for me. No question!

Barkbox Small Dog March 2017 Subscription Box Review and Free Box Coupon

My dogs love getting Barkbox. I love it because it saves me time and trips to the pet store and because it keeps me in constant toys and treats. My dogs love it because... well, treats and toys, of course! I have two rat terriers and we get the Small dog box because they tip the scales at about 17lbs. I don't recommend it for under 10lbs since the toys can be too large but other than that... yay!

Barkbox has an Allergy Friendly version of their boxes and I flip flop between the two since Dexter can't eat chicken without explosive side effects. Heh. I am SO happy they have this option since there are plenty of allergy prone breeds out there who will appreciate being able to snarf all the treats instead of just some of them.

The Cost: $29/month

What You Get: Every BarkBox has at least 2 innovative toys, 2 all-natural bags of treats, and a chew, curated from each month's unique themed collection.
