Luxor Box Subscription Review – May 2015
This is their very first box, so I took way more unboxing photos than I normally do:
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
This box will definitely be reused for gifting or storage!
The Subscription Box: Luxor Box
The Cost: $125 to the US, $155 to Canada (Ships every other month)
The Products: Every-other-month we curate a selection of five to seven full-size, hand-picked, products with a value of $250+ per delivery. Our surprise selections will range from high-end spa products, top-shelf beauty products, jewelry, apparel, home accessories and unique treasures from around the world.
This box comes with individual product info cards for each item included. The cards give a brief description, retail value, and coupon for the brand.
Mariposa Lumiere Tea Light – Value $25
Subscribers will receive one of two variations (both silver).
This is a well-made piece, but it doesn’t fit our decor well, so I think I may end up gifting it. (Fortunatly it already comes ready to gift!)
Chambre de Sucre Sugar Ball Set – Value $26
These are meant to be used for tea and coffee – they definitely look fancier than sugar packets! My husband and I don’t use sugar in our coffee/tea, so these will be another lovely item to gift!
Lisa Stewart Bar None Stud Earrings – Value $85
These are made with Sterling Silver Vermeil and 14k gold plated. They are beautiful and I love the delicate size. Here is a close up:
(To give you a better idea of scale, these measure 1 cm long).
MSC Vanilla Exfoliating Sugar Scrub – Value $33
I’ve sampled the MSC line before and I really like their products, so I was happy to see three of them in this box! This scrub leaves a good about of oil/moisture on your skin, and the vanilla scent is very light.
MSC Lavender + Bergamot Body Nectar – Value $30
This body oil is made with natural ingredients, and I love that there are lavender petals floating in it! The oil itself absorbs quickly, and is pretty fragrant – this is definitely for lavender lovers only!
MSC Lavender and Spearmint Lip Cream – Value $7
The Spearmint is the dominant flavor in this lip balm – which is my preference.
Red Carpet Kolour Body Glow in Medium – Value $50
This lotion is paraben and fragrance free, and designed to give your skin color and shine, and hide the appearance of spots, stretchmarks, etc. It sounds great, but unfortunately I’m allergic to one of the ingredients (Red dye 40), so I’ll be passing this along to a friend or swapping it.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $256. That’s double the cost of the box, so I’m happy! The packaging of this box is fantastic, and it definitely has a luxe feel. I’m going to use about half the products and gift/swap the rest, but I’m still pleased with the brands/products they included. I’m curious to see more boxes in this subscription so I can get a better feel for what they deliver, and I’m also curious if there will be variation in the boxes, or if everyone gets the same items.
What do you think of the first Luxor box? Is this what you were expecting?
