Hello, thank you for joining me on my blog today! It’s time to unbox and review the November Treatbox! November seemed to roll around really quickly, with so much going on in the last week or two, the days really have flown by. I wanted to take my time with the products in the box this month and after a busy start to the month I am also bringing you this review much later than I planned to.
I really liked the theme this month which was all celestial with lots of moons. It was nice to have a range of items centred on self care and there was a lilac colour scheme throughout as well.
Let’s take a look at what was inside the November box.
What was inside?
November Calendar Print Treatbox A5 Print “Slow down & everything you are chasing…” Treatbox Original Mindful Check In Notepad Purple Beaded Bracelet in Organza Bag Bloom & Blossom Hands Up Age Defying Hand Cream 15ml Sensory Retreats Divine Eyes self-heating eye mask – Lavender Blendsmiths Beetroot & Ginger Blend – Vegan DF CF – Drinking Blend bubble t Hydrogel Lip Mask – Vegan Full Mellow Cosmetics – Light Blue Cloud Bath Bomb
My Honest Opinion
Overall this was a very good box with a nice theme and some items we had not seen before. The products I liked best were the Treatbox originals like the Mindful Check-In notepad, the quote card and the bracelet. The self care items are great, though I haven’t had time to use either of the masks yet (life is so busy at the moment!) but the hand cream is lovely. The next time I have a free weekend I plan to look at the self care bits and those from the previous two treatboxes as well, and I will post on social media with how I got on. This has not been my favourite box of the year by a long way, but it’s still been very nice. I am looking forward to the December box now.
Thank you for reading this unboxing post and review with me today. Don’t forget to follow me across my social media for more updates on the products as I use them throughout the month.

Hello! I hope the sun is shining where you are! It’s me Sabrina, I’m here with the latest TreatboxUK unboxing and to bring you all my Reveal and Review for May 2023! How are we May already? April went past in a blur and I really hope the entire summer doesn’t go this fast!
Let’s get stuck in with what was inside this month!And don’t forget if you want to see my video of me unboxing this for the first time then head over to my social media (link is at the end!)
What was Inside the May 2023 Box
May Calendar Print Sodalite Stone Star in Organza Bag Treatbox Original Print “Important Reminders, you are loved, you are…” Treatbox Original Print “I hope you are okay and being gentle with yourself…” 100% Cotton Zip lock Bag featuring the quote “Finding the Calm in the Chaos” Made by Coopers Bath Salts bag Eucalyptus, Rosemary & Lavender – Vegan Timeless Aromas Soy Wax Melts “breathe” Blue Bow Spa Headband
1 Calendar Print, 5 items and 2 A5 Prints
My Honest Opinion of the May 2023 Box
I really liked the Calming theme of this box, overall it was executed well and I thought the products matched up nicely. I would have liked an edible or drinkable treat in here, but that’s me being picky. My personal self care involves an edible treat as well as doing things like a face mask or taking a long bath.
I really loved the Sodalite Star it’s beautiful and the properties of it are excellent. The bag is 100% cotton and from a source which is ethically produced so that’s great! I do like the positive quote cards and look forward to displaying them at home and putting them on my socials to keep spreading that positivity around for all who see them. Love the spa band as it’s soft and pretty with the bow.
I haven’t had the time to have a bath with the salts yet so watch this space and I will review that when I get round to it, and I will wear the spa band, I will put it on my social media when I do! I can’t use the wax melts sadly due to my son being very allergic to soya products, so they will go into my “gifts to friends” box to be passed on at some point in the coming months.
Overall it’s a lovely theme and a nice box of mixed calming treats for us to enjoy. Here is a photograph of my favourite items this month.
Thanks so much for joining me for this unboxing and review today!Anddon’t forget to follow me across social media for more updates.
Well here we are, halfway through April and I apologise that my product review is later than usual. Having done my video unboxing when I initially received my Treatbox in the post I was then busy with the Easter holidays and spending some much needed family time. But having this extra time before writing my review also gave me a chance however, to look at this months products in more detail.
April was a lovely Bee themed and happiness inspiring box for me. Loved it! Let’s take a look now and remind ourselves what was inside it, I am sharing my honest opinions as always and all the photography is my own.
What was inside the April box?
Bee Themed! April Calendar Print Treatbox Original Bee Pin Treatbox Original Printed Notepad Busy Bee A6 Treatbox Original Socks Bees and Hearts in honey beige Treatbox Original A6 Print “she turned her can’t into cans & her dreams into plans” Lapcos Honey Nourishing and Hydrating Face Mask 27ml Tasty Mates Salted Caramel Sweets GF Vegan 54g Bee Gold Plated Earrings with Crystal Wings
My Honest Opinion
I loved the theme this month, when you think of April you imagine rain showers or April flowers, but a Bee is a cute idea and I think of nature in abundance when I consider Bees, plus, who doesn’t love a cute little Bee?! The Bee and Honey theme was well executed throughout and I love how the Treatbox original products coordinated with each other as well.
Overall the quality of the products was excellent, we know our notepads and other Treatbox original stationery is printed to the highest quality, as are the TB original socks. I have yet to try the sweets or the face mask but that’s because I’ve had a really busy few weeks on Easter break. I have put the Bee pin on my jacket and the notepad is out on my table ready for my next list. I did find the font a little hard to read on the Print this month but perhaps I’m being picky. Did you read it okay? I will be sharing more pictures on Instagram of the products in use very soon.
My favourite items for April 2023 have been the notepad, socks, pin and earrings. I don’t usually wear jewellery in gold due to my skin complexion, however these earrings are stunning and far too nice to give away, so I hope to pair them with an outfit matching their calibre soon. Watch out for updates on my social media on all of the items you have seen revealed today.
What is your favourite item in this April box? Here are some more of my photographs.

Have a great April (what’s left of it) and I hope I see you here again soon!
That’s it! The longest month of the year is over! Ha! Ha!
January is forgotten as we move into the new month, and February has lots of things in store for us including the arrival of Winter Flowers and the start of Spring Blooms. There is nothing I like more in Winter than a crisp sunny day, taking a walk among the snowdrops…
Well there is something I like just as much as that, and that’s opening my Treatbox! My little treat to myself, a box once a month filled with a host of items just for me!
February TreatboxUK promises to be a good one as I open up the Calendar Print so as to discover what’s inside the tissue paper. If you would prefer to watch my unboxing video than to read this post you can find it just HERE
Let’s see what was revealed for February 2023…
What’s Inside the February 2023 TreatboxUK
February Calendar Print Treatbox Original Self Care Cards Set x 9 Treatbox Original Heart Print Lilac Socks Treatbox Original Keyring Lilac & Pink “what a good day to be proud of how far you have come” Caramel, Raspberry & Dark Chocolate Popcorn from Popcorn Shed “Berry-Licious” 24g GF Cocoba “Eat Drink Love” Chocolate Spoon with Marshmallow Hearts 50g Miss Patisserie Bath Slab in Watermelon Scent 200g Vegan
My Honest Opinion on the Box
February 2023 from TreatboxUK is an uplifting and positivity filled box of treats. We once again received a mixture, so we have an item to eat, an item to make into a drink, something we can keep, something to wear, something to use and something that gives us a positive boost.
I really love the smell of the Watermelon Bath Slab, I haven’t had the time to open it and run myself a bath as yet! But the smell is so lovely it’s on my dining table making the room smell so nice for now! I also look forward to enjoying the hot chocolate spoon, but this is something I can only have when my son is away at his Dad’s due to all of his allergies, I shall be able to enjoy it later this month! And I will post it on my Instagram when I finally do!
We also have the Popcorn which sounds like the TASTIEST flavours ever! I am saving this for Valentine’s Day because (as a single mum) I need something tasty to devour once my little boy is in bed! I’m excited! Raspberry and Dark Chocolate are a winning combination but to also pair it with Caramel… You’re looking at the woman who always keeps Toffee Popcorn in her cupboard so yes, cannot wait! Great choice!
The keyring and it’s quote are uplifting and we also see the theme repeated between this and the socks, the lilac and pink colour scheme. Speaking of sock… so soft and the usual TreatboxUK quality that we have come to know and love! Most days I am wearing a pair of TreatboxUK socks now, as I own more than a weeks worth. They wash and wear brilliantly! Highly recommend them if you ever build a box on the website for anyone definitely add in socks! Finally we have the TreatboxUK Original items, the Calendar Print and the Self Care Cards. I’m going to be sharing more photo’s of these cards on my social media during the month, some are very poignant like “Stop being so hard on yourself” and “If today was heavy put it down and let it go”. Both are just some of the excellent meaningful quotes and phrases in this pile of 9 cards. You could choose one at random every day to read, or you could pop them around your home so you see them while doing things. Either way they are important acknowledgments about how busy our lives can get, and how stressful things can be, that we all should love ourselves a little bit more and take some time for self care.
Overall I have enjoyed unboxing this February 2023 box and I look forward to consuming and using all of the products that were inside. Hopefully you’ll be able to see more of them on my social media as the weeks of the month progress. I think my favourite item is going to be the popcorn, I hope it’s as tasty as it sounds, and of course I adore the socks.

The brand new year has begun and the first Treatbox UK box of 2023 landed on my doorstep. I had a few days off over New Year spent with my family, and then I began blogging again at the end of the first week of January. This is why this post is a little later than I would usually do them, however I needed a much deserved rest, and less hours looking at my screens. I hope your year has started off well! Thank you for joining me today!
So let’s get on to this unboxing! I was hoping for some of the usual “start of the year” items in this box, such as a Journal or Calendar or a Planner, and I also hoped for the possibility of new things that we had not yet seen as well! And guess what? I wasn’t disappointed! If you would prefer to watch my unboxing video, then you can find that by clicking here… otherwise please continue as I unbox the January 2023 Treatbox!
What was inside the January box?
January 2023 Monthly Calendar Print 2023 Treatbox Original Bound Calendar Sheet of Stickers for Organising and Reminding Treatbox Original A5 Print “The new year stands before us…” Treatbox Original Notebook “Notes” – Blank White Pages Stationery Pen – Colour Picked at Random – I received a White Pen Pink Iced Shortbread Biscuit “You Got This” Pink Velvet Hair Scrunchie
Let us now take a closer look at the products that were inside for January 2023.
What is my Honest Opinion
A lovely box with a well thought out design this month, the dusky pink throughout and a theme of moving forward with the start of the new year. A mix of organisation items and Treatbox original stationery, combined with some treats with the biscuit to eat and the scrunchie to wear.
The Calendar is of excellent quality and I have created a cardboard stand for mine to stand up on my desk, so that I’m able to keep track of everything with ease as the weeks go on. (See image below). My favourite items are the Calendar, Stickers and the Scrunchie, but all of the items this month are useful and of good product quality. I also like the positive quote on the print this month too, because I personally (as a writer) do see every new year as new chapters ready to be written.
To see the Treatbox UK products in use please follow me on social media as they will feature regularly all month in my photographs and videos.This January box has been a lovely start to the year, and I look forward to the next box in February.
Thank you for reading this unboxing blog post, I hope you have a lovely January.

A Look Back at the Treatbox Monthly Subscription Boxes for 2022…
Treatbox UK is a subscription box and gift service in the United Kingdom that have some incredible products including in house originals. I have been subscribed to the Treatbox monthly box service since April 2016, and both the boxes and my Review skills have improved vastly since those initial days! I have also introduced a monthly video unboxing to my social media too.
Over the years I have been subscribed there have been some excellently executed themes and some stand alone boxes that made my heart sing with joy when opening them. After so many years of reviewing, I realised that I had never looked back on a year and blogged about it, so I thought why not start with December 2022 and look back at this year.
There have been several stand out boxes this past year, of course my opinion may differ to others, so I thought I would write a blog post and revisit all of the boxes of 2022 and tell you which my top four are and why.I will also mention my favourite item in each box of the year too.So without further ado lets take a quick look, in a photographic sense, of the twelve boxes from this year.
My Top 4 Boxes
The boxes that I think have been the best overall for both product quality and theme have been the November, October, May and March boxes. The items were a good mix in these four boxes and I have either worn or used the products multiple times since receiving them. I love receiving products that we have not seen before, and during 2021 we saw too many of similar items duplicated. However 2022 introduced new things, and new Treatbox originals such as Prints, Keyrings, Pins and Stationery. There were also several brand collaborations this year, such as the Craft Kits with Make Arcade and Socks too! I would say that overall the boxes of 2022 have been excellent quality, well rounded and a good mixture of products throughout the year with very few duplications.
My Top Products of the Year
December Box – Reindeer Socks / Hanging Decoration November Box – Coaster / Bookmark / Pin / Cards October Box – Autumn Socks / Pumpkin Craft Kit September Box – Shell Trinket Dish / Pen / Notepads August Box – Recipe Journal / Adult Colouring Sheets July Box – Smile Socks / Handcream June Box – Monthly Planner / Bracelet May Box – Mindfulness Cards / Journal / Quartz Moon April Box – Craft Kit Umbrella / Socks / Shopping List Pad March Box – Silver Daisy Earrings / Pin February Box – Heart Pink Socks / Bag January Box – Amazonite Bracelet / Bookmark
There is a theme here, I love the socks that come in Treatbox, and I am a huge fan of the Stationery, Planners and Notebooks and the like too. Anything that allows me to be Creative is also a winner for me.
What Do I Hope To See in Treatbox UK in 2023
There are a few items that I would love to see stay inside Treatbox for 2023, these include more Craft Kits, different Self Care items and an edible item in every box (preferably Vegan). We don’t always get something to eat, but even if it were a single wrapped piece of chocolate, or a sweet, it would still be edible. As I have said in my unboxing videos a few times this year, I like to have the following;
Something to Keep, Something to Use, Something to Do, Something for Self Care, Something to Wear, Something to Eat, Something to Drink, Something to Gift and Something to Appreciate.
Do you like my motto? I believe that this is what I personally would like to see every month. I realise there are 9 thing in my motto, Treatbox contains anything from 6 to 10 items depending upon their value. Most of this year we have seen 8 items in a box.
What I love most from Treatbox are the Positive aspects, Socks, Scarves, Stationery and Craft Kits, so I would be more than happy to receive these items inside future boxes. Other items I would like to see in the coming boxes would be things like Emery Boards, Nail Art or Skin Art such as Tattoo’s or Stickers. A yearly planner inside a box is also a great thing, I am not so much into diary writing these days but I journal and keep a weekly planner, as well as a monthly house calendar (so we know what is what). Useful items are the key to making boxes great, because they last far longer than the edible or drinkable item, we need a good mixture of items of singular use and enjoyment versus an item used all month long and beyond.
So in summary, more of the same like this year, a great variety and high quality items, interesting themes and of course the usual Treatbox original staples like the socks and stationery!
Thank you for reading this blog post today, sorry it’s a long one! And I do hope that you have enjoyed looking back at a whole year worth of Treatbox UK with me.
Wishing you all a Happy New Year, I cannot believe this is my final blog post of 2022 (or it would have been as I couldn’t submit it live as the website had issues) and I cannot wait to see what 2023 has in store! Hopefully more boxes and more product reviews! I also have some lifestyle things in the pipeline as well.
Have a great New Year!
