For the past couple of months, I have been receiving a subscription box from Project-B. The boxes, which come once a month, are full of products and samples perfectly tailored for each stage of pregnancy.
This week, I received the ‘Congratulations’ box, which sadly is my final box. It was perfect timing, with Ben making an early appearance!
The boxes, which can be bought as a subscription or a one-off gift box, cost £14 each, but the contents are valued much higher.
So, what was in my box this month?
Baba + Boo Reusable Nappy (RRP £9.25)
Halos N Horns Baby Moisturising Lotion (RRP £4.07)
Nappy Creams from Green People, Metanium and Sudocrem (sample sizes)
Water Wipes (sample size)
Nordic Baby Wipes (RRP unknown)
Babydrops (RRP £9.99)
Sanitising Water (sample size)
NUK Baby Bottle (RRP £4.99)
Venture Family Photo Shoot (RRP £245)
What did I think?
I was mostly
excited by the voucher for the photo shoot, which includes a family photo shoot and framed picture, but was gutted when I went to book it to find out that there are no studios local to us (Birmingham – the second city!) and as we don’t have a car at the moment, we can’t get to one within the four month time frame.
I really loved the cloth nappy, and am glad it was included as it may encourage mums who had never considered cloth nappies to give them a go!
The baby bottle was handy – I’ve only ever used Philips Avent bottles so it was nice to try a different brand and see how Ben got on with it.
The moisturiser is a brand I’d not tried, and really liked it – they brand has definitely gained a new customer here!
The nordic wipes were a fab idea – they’re disposable foam wipes so contain no nasties for baby’s bum. However, I HATE the feeling of foam (any material that squeaks is minging!) so I can’t use the actual product. I’m just a bit weird though!
The baby drops are great if you’re breastfeeding, but as we have chosen to use formula with Ben, we won’t be using these. I do like the way they have included products for both bottle and breast feeding mums though.
I’m really sad that my subscription to Project B has come to an end. Pregnancy is such a long waiting game, and it was nice to have something to look forward to each month. The boxes were a good mix of products for mum and baby, with both practical and luxury items. They would make lovely gifts for mums to be, or for treating yourself.
