Escape Monthly

Escape Monthly

Everyone Deserves an Escape Every Month - That means YOU! Life is stressful, and it's hard to schedule the time we all need to relax. But what if you got a care package in the mail every month, designed specifically to help you DE-stress and escape from the chaos of every day life? Introducing Escape Monthly: a destination-inspired monthly delivery of luxury products to help you relax and renew. Every month, they curate high-quality products to help you slip into bliss—from spa & beauty products, to gourmet snacks & gift certificates. They also give a lucky member a vacation to the destination of the month!



I am excited to review this product for you all today because I know it's something my readers really like and I was excited about it as well. After a little hiccup with a product not being able to get through customs, it finally arrived on my doorstep today!



This month's destination was Paris!


This is a really nice addition to this box even if I will probably never use it, but it really adds to the idea that this is a vacation in a box. It's a Pocket Guide to Paris by Rick Steves and retails for $12.99. This cute little guide has all kinds of full color photos and information on various places to dine, sleep, and site see. It even has a pull out map of Paris in the back!


This Gourmet Candy retails for $5.00 and is lemon flavored. It's one of the oldest treats in France, mentioned as early as 872 A.D. In the past it would take up to 6 months to layer each coating of sugar, but these candies finish there process in only 15 days.


The Nuxe body scrub and shower gel have a light almond and orange blossom petal scent that is very relaxing and Nuxe is the leader in anti-aging, firming body skincare. These are 100% plant-based in a thick exfoliant and soap-free shower gel which retails at $16.00


This item was the little bugger that had issues coming through customs and delayed delivery of this months box, but they promised that this box was well worth the wait and oh was it ever! Don't be fooled by the packaging. Although this looks to me like a tube of acrylic paint, it's actually a really soothing shea butter hand cream and it's definitely worth the $26.00 price tag!


I was hoping to get some food items in this box and they did not disappoint! These French Pure Butter Cookies are delicious. They come in two individually wrapped packages with 4 cookies to a package and have a rich buttery flavor. These cookies retail for $4.25.


This box offered the most adorable jar of strawberry preserves I have ever laid eyes on. it's small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and to be honest, tastes great with the butter cookies! And for $3.00 the price is almost as tiny as the jar!


Can I just say that next to the shea butter hand cream, this was my favorite thing in the box? I love gourmet mustards! This is an award winning recipe for $6.25 a jar and is delicious on crackers, sandwiches, soft pretzels, you name it! I couldn't wait to get my pictures for the review so I could dig into it. Layer a cracker with a little hard salami and swiss and a smear of this mustard and it's so good! 


For $49.95 a month, you can have your vacation come to you! And just to put it into perspective on the value of this box,  total retail value of all items in this box came to about $72! You're getting $72 worth of fabulous finds for only $50. In case you aren't sure you want to commit, Not only am I offering a coupon code when you click the banner below, but they also have the option to gift yourself  (or a very special someone else) a box. You can try it for one month with no commitment!  

**EDIT: I've been informed that there is actually an Escape Mini box for those of you who don't want the guidebook and want a cheaper option and you can pick that up for $25! However, you will not be able to use the coupon code and you can find that by going to

If you enjoyed the Paris box, you might be just as excited to know that next month's box (which ships on September 16th) will take you to the beautiful slice of Caribbean paradise that is Puerto Rico!
