Rachel Zoe Box of Style Winter 2015 Subscription Box Review
The Rachel Zoe Box of Style from The Zoe Report is a new subscription box from Rachel Zoe. I am a huge fan and love her taste, so I think this may be my favorite subscription box launch of the year so far!
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
Let it Zoe! (Love a good Rachel Zoe pun!)
The packaging on this box is fabulous – it definitely feels like you are unwrapping a luxe gift! (Each item is individually wrapped in black tissue paper).

The box comes with an info booklet with Rachel’s styling tips, and a letter from her introducing the box.
Brands also included coupon codes for Box of Style subscribers.
Love the packaging and pop of orange with this box!
This is the hero item of the box. (Each quarter Box of Style announces the Hero item ahead of time – it’s a great way to decide if you should subscribe for that box!)
Here is a closer look:
And here it is on:
I’m in love with this ring! The sparkle is great for holiday parties, and it’s nice to get a stacked ring look without wearing tons of different rings. It is adjustable too. Here is the back:
Honest Beauty Makeup Remover Wipes – Value $10
I thought these would be identical to the 3-in-1 Facial Towelettes from Honest Company that I also use for makeup removal, but these have an added refreshing scent. Not sure if that difference alone is worth the $3 price difference, but I like them!
Honest Beauty Lip Crayon in Mulberry Kiss – Value $18
This lip crayon packs some pigment! It goes on smoothly, and you really only need one swipe to get a lot of color. The result is similar to a lip stain. Here it is swatched:
Lelet NY Swarovski Crystal Hair Pin – Value $98
This piece is gorgeous:
I’ve never worn bobby pins before. (My hair game is lacking in general), but I’m going to try to make this work instead of just deciding it will be gifted/swapped! Here it is styled from Box of Style:
Our Heiday Leopard Note Card Set – Value $20
These were included as a chic way to send post-Holiday thank you notes! Here they are out of the package:
I love that even these have a touch of gold with the envelopes!
Ciate Nail Polish in Ivory Queen – Value $15
(Colors will vary for subscribers)
This isn’t a super exciting item for me, but I love the Ciate nail polish packaging (the formula is good too), so I’m good with this box addition.
(Good to know for swaps – the mask has an outer plastic wrap and inner foil seal).
This hair mask smells so good! And I like that you only have to leave it on for 3-5 minutes. I will be trying this out tonight!
And they also included a bonus Rare Oil Treatment (7 ml):
This works for both hair and skin. I love oils like this for my cuticles too. It’s more perfume-y than I was expecting but other than that I like the formula.
SOS Foot Petals – Value $7
In each box, Rachel always includes a styling tool item. I’ve ended up using a few of them so far, so I appreciate being able to create a styling emergency kit thanks to this subscription!
Verdict: I may be in the minority this quarter, but I really like this box! I think one big part of my love for this box is that I LOVE the hero item. The other items are great too. I definitely wouldn’t spend $100 on a hairpin, but I’m going to give it a try now that I own it! This box feels festive and special to me, and I can see how everything ties into holiday parties, and beauty prep.
What do you think of the Winter 2015 Box of Style?
Also – this was a bonus I received with my box:
I love that they are rewarding subscribers who have been with them since the first box!
Here is the additional gift item:
Boulevard Origami Pouch – Value $32?
I couldn’t find this exact pouch on their site (not sure if this is a Rachel Zoe exclusive?), but I found a similar bag for the value estimate.
Here is the lining:
