La Bella Box Monthly Subscription Box Review – August 2012
This is my very first La Bella Box. The theme this month was sweet things!
The Box: La Bella Box
The Cost: $20 a month
The Products: Each box is filled with a mix of 4-5 boutique products from small businesses all over the United States. Items from previous boxes included: candles, postcards, gourmet treats, and soap.
Oh Honey Sweet Bee BBQ Sauce – FULL SIZE! Value $7
I haven’t tried it yet – but it looks delish! I was very happy to see this BBQ sauce has a short ingredient list and is gluten free!
Willow Tree Minerals White Peach Natural Lip Gloss – FULL SIZE! Value $2.95
Love the short ingredient list: Beeswax, Cocoa Butter, Almond Oil, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Shea Butter, Natural Flavor.
Bonnie Body Milk – 1 oz Value $2
I’ve never used a spray lotion before – and I like it! This formula is very lightweight and the scent is light and clean.
CandieFactory Miniature Molds – Value $5
Confession: I typically look at products in a box before reading the card that comes with the box. Needless to say, when I saw these I had no idea what they were! Turns out they are little molds for candy or craft projects. Not sure I’ll use these – very cute though.
Verdict: For $20 I received about $17 worth of product. I would have loved to receive over $20 worth of product, but I’m still pleased with the box as I will use 3 out of the 4 items, and all of the items were new to me. I think the La Bella Box subscription is really about discovering great new products, and they definitely delivered on that front!
