Marilyn Martyouze Review and 50% off Coupon

If you like audiobooks, romance, and pampering yourself, Marilyn Martyouze is the perfect subscription box for you! The subscription sends two audiobooks with lots of lovely treats on a bi-monthly basis.

*Disclaimer: This box was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

Marilyn Martyouze has two different boxes: audiobooks and lingerie. This is a review of the audiobooks box. Boxes ship every other month and contain one or two audiobooks plus two to three bath and body, beauty, accessory, or other whimsical luxury items.

Here are the pricing options:
  • Bi-Monthly: $58 for one box every two months
  • Four Month Prepay: $116 for two boxes
  • Six Month Prepay: $174 for three boxes
  • 12 Month Prepay: $348 for six boxes
Shipping is free on six- and 12-month subscriptions and $7 for the bi-monthly option.

Your first box will ship within two weeks of you signing up, and then subsequent boxes will ship bi-monthly. You'll also receive a complimentary magazine subscription when you leave a review on Google and Instagram or Google and Facebook using the #MMRewards hashtag in the review. The info card (pictured below) said on the opposite side that the subscription is for Elle Magazine.

My box theme was "Contemporary" with romance audiobooks. There were a ton of other goodies packed inside, too!

There was also a nice handwritten card saying that my box was packed by Linda and had a retail value of $82.

My box had two audiobooks on CD and six bath and body/beauty items. I also really liked the pink peanut packaging and little hearts made out of red pipe cleaners (see above at the bottom of the box).

The beauty products fit the romance theme really well. Here's what was inside:
  • Wellness Blends Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum (~14.99) - This is a scented hyaluronic acid and essential oil blend. I use hyaluronic acid serum daily to help retain moisture, but this one had more of an oil based than I'm used to. It still absorbed quickly into my skin and felt really soft after, though.
  • Victoria's Secret Bombshell and Bombshell Paris Eau de Parfum ($18) - This has Bombshell on one end and Bombshell Paris on the other and I love both! They're the perfect mix of sweet and floral.
  • Nicole Miller Hand Cream in Rose Gardenia and Lilac and Green Tea (~$8 each) - The packaging on these is so pretty. They both smell lovely and exactly how you'd expect them to smell based on their names, but florals tend to make me sneeze a lot so I'm going to gift these to my mom.
  • My Beauty Spot Charcoal Infused Body Wash with Retinol and Rose Hip (~$5 each) - I've never seen a body wash with retinol in it before, but it's a great idea. Retinol (also known as Vitamin A) is great for increasing collagen production and fading dark spots from sun damage. Rose Hip protects skin and increases cell turnover. Both have charcoal, which detoxifies and balances skin.
I'm approximating the retail value of the serum, hand creams, and body washes since I couldn't find exact listings for them online.

Now for the audiobooks! At first I thought that the books would be a digital download, but I actually kind of like having them on CD. Plus, it's easy to save them as MP3s through iTunes if you want to add them to your phone or whatnot.

The first book is Royal Heir by Ruth Cardello ($14.95 on iTunes), with six discs and a run time of seven hours and 47 minutes. I honestly have never listened to an audiobook before, I usually read paper books, but these are great for a road trip or while you're otherwise commuting.

The second book is The Villa by Nora Roberts ($22.95 on iTunes), on 14 discs with a run time of about 15 hours.
  • Visit Marilyn Martyouze to subscribe
    • Use coupon code Deluxe for 50% off your first box (valid on the bi-monthly audiobook option) - bringing the price to $29!
  • Connect with them on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter
Bottom Line: The Marilyn Martyouze audiobook subscription is a great way to treat yourself to a little pampering and romantic stories! I calculate the approximate retail value to be $96.89, which is actually $14.89 higher than what was listed on the info card, so maybe my estimations are a little off -- but either way, you're getting your money's worth for this box.
