Product Review: Dewcibox Subscription Box (@dewcibox)
Dewcibox is a new product to the market which is based mainly around a subscription model – i.e. buyers can subscribe and get a box sent direct to their door each month, which contains a bunch of sexy products. One-off purchases are also available if you just wanted to try it out, or perhaps buy a box as a gift for someone.
The box I received was the April 2016 subscription, and it contained the following:
- Zuyosa Sexual Vitality Supplement for Men
- Ayumi: Sensual Massage, Bath & Body Oil
- PlayBoy Condoms: 2 Premium Latex Condoms
- Lovehoney: Magic Bullet 10 Function Vibrator
- Licx: Mix for Her
- Funkin: Mojito Mixer
- Milk Chocolate Hearts x 2
My first impressions were very favourable – as seen in the image above, the box looks classy, and is also well-made and well-presented. On opening it, I found my products wrapped in black tissue paper and nestled on a bed of black shredded paper. Looking good. The information leaflets that came with the Dewcibox were also physically of a high standard and were well-designed. However, the information itself could have done with a proofread for grammar, punctuation and consistency. Many folks wouldn’t have even noticed this, but the editor in me is always there, unfortunately, and I felt that this let the overall product down, given it’s otherwise of such a high standard.
The toys and other items themselves were also of a high standard, and there was plenty of variety, too. They’ve obviously been well thought out and carefully chosen.
Overall, this is an intriguing idea, and one I suspect will enjoy success. Keeping things interesting and fresh for those that do decide to subscribe on an ongoing basis could be a challenge, however. This is a product I’d recommend for sex toy newbies – or maybe someone heading off for a sexy weekend away or a honeymoon. For those who are much more into their toys, I’m not sure this could really offer them anything – possibly the offering is too tame.
I do think the pricing and potential saving is appealing, and the production value is high. The only let down is the errors on the printed literature. A tiny point in the scheme of things, but the company has obviously put in a hell of a lot of work here, so to make such a basic error is a shame. Also, to really round out the offering, I think it’d be a nice touch to also include batteries for any toys in the box, if they don’t already come with them. Imagine buying a box, putting it in a weekend bag and heading off, only to find at the crucial moment that you need a battery? Not good.
