I’ve been lusting over the Wantable Makeup boxes for months, but when I got an opportunity to review a box, I realized that there was one I wanted even more– the Wantables Intimates February Box*. Wantables also has an accessory subscription. The Wantables Intimates subscription is $36/month, or a one-time purchase for $40, plus shipping which is $6 extra to Canada. The boxes are priced in USD. The subscription promises “4 to 5 premium essentials, handpicked to perfectly match your preferences.”
Like all my favourite subscription boxes, a benefit of Wantable is that you can cancel or skip at any time if you subscribe. I am very very tempted (ie: it will happen) by the Wantable Intimates box, but it is pretty expensive so it’s not something I’ll be able to have every month and I am very pleased by the flexibility it offers. Customer service is also great! My Wantable Intimates February Review is quite late because my box only arrived with 3 items, while it promises at least 4. They quickly apologized and immediately sent another item off to me.
Each box comes with an adorable message, along with a print out showing you what you are getting, and the value of each item. The unique thing about Wantable is how customizable it is, so they also include a list of anything you have “loved”, “liked” or “disliked”. You are most likely to get items you “love” and you will not receive anything you “dislike”. There is a very detailed quiz when you sign up to ensure you get items you’ll love, including size and colour preference.
When I signed up for my Wantable Intimates February box, one thing I was concerned about was bras. I have seen them in other boxes, and the sizing options available on the website didn’t work for– plus that is the sort of thing I would really want to try on. I easily fixed this by “disliking” them in my profile, as you’ll see, no bras for me!
These pants almost cover the entire value of the Wantable Intimates February box on their own, and although I might not pay full price for them I have been wearing them lots since I received them (which has been a little while since I had to wait for my missing item). They are extremely soft and comfortable, from a well-known brand, and in a great colour. They also fit me perfect. I have never owned yoga pants before, but now I see how people end up living in these…
Another perfect match! Honestly there is nothing in my Wantable Intimates February box I wouldn’t have purchased, although as a student I don’t think I would ever spend that much on a single pair of underwear, I am very happy to receive them. They are a gorgeous colour and very soft and wearable.
How cute are these? I adore socks (socks, scarves and sweaters have always been my favourite items of clothing) but I own a ton so I just “liked” these on the quiz (unlike the other 3 items in my box which I “loved”– so 3/4 is pretty good considering I was very picky and only “loved” loungewear and underwear). However, when I saw them in my box I was so happy and glad that Wantable knew me well enough to send me a pair anyway, knee highs are my favourites and these are so cute, comfortable, and perfect for winter.
As I shared, that was my original box which was honestly so good I didn’t even realize there was a problem until I went to write up my Wantable Intimates February Review and realized the website said “4 to 5” items. Of course I couldn’t turn down a fourth item, and Wantable sent it right away in an adorable little box.
My final item was a second pair of underwear, however, like I said, the reason I received a double is because I was very picky in my quiz. I was very happy to receive a second pair though as these are also great quality and save me from shopping. They are really cute and although I could do without the tiny heart, they are also very comfortable and wearable and I would be happy to receive more from this brand in future Wantable boxes.
Wow! What a success my Wantable Intimates February box was! The total value of the box was $83.90 USD, and I received a pair of pants, a pair of socks, and two pairs of underwear. I did some quick Googling Wantable’s prices for the products seem to be very close to what you would find online elsewhere. With the exchange, this box would cost me about $47/month CDN, and that would still be about $35 more in value than cost. The items are all a perfect for me, and even better than that- they are all so useful! I adore beauty subscriptions, but I do own a lot of makeup. However, something like the Wantable Intimates combines the fun and excitement of a subscription box with a useful product you might actually need and that’s exactly why I may be able to justify subscribing!
